NOTE OF THE AMERICAN PUBLISHERS.

DIS! 6

Br. AY

IN presenting to the American public this edition of Mr. Wilson's “ Abode of Snow," the Publishers deem it due to the author to explain that it has been reprinted from the original articles as first issued in “Blackwood's Magazine," and that it will be found to differ in some few points from the volume published in Edinburgh. Through a misunderstanding on their part as to the plan of Messrs. Blackwood for the issuing of their edition, and the failure to reach them of the full information concerning this, they had not been made aware that any changes in his Magazine material had been contemplated by the author, and when word concerning these finally reached them, their edition was already stereotyped and ready for the printer.

They have added to this the author's preface, and the Map and vignette title from the Edinburgh vol. ume, and they plan to incorporate in future editions, as far as practicable, such additions to his Magazine papers as the author has found desirable. The articles in the Magazine give, however, not only the complete narrative, but a narrative which, carefully revised up to the standard of “ Maga,” and certainly evincing no want of literary finish, forms a work of permanent value, possessing an exceptional freshness and novelty and one that will without question meet with the hearty appreciation of any American Içaders.
