“Why are not more gems from our great authors scattered over the country ? Great books are not in everybody's reach ; and though it is better to know them thoroughly than to know them only here and there, yet it is a good work to give a little to those who have neither time nor means to get more. Let every bookworm, when in any fragrant scarce old tome he discovers a sentence, a story, an illustration, that does his heart good, hasten to give it."

COLERIDGE.

“Read and fear not tliine own understanding : this book will create a clear one in thee; and when thou hast considered thy purchase, thou wilt call the price of it a charity to thyzelf.”

SAIRLEY.
