THE Publisher begs to intimate to his Subscribers, that COWPER'S POETICAL WORKS will be completed in two volumes instead of three, as originally proposed. This alteration in the issue for the Second Year will enable him to give the Poetical Works of SHENSTONE, in addition to those formerly announced for that year.
The two volumes of Cowper will be considerably thicker than the average standard, and some of the others will be correspondingly thinner; but the six volumes will contain the full number of pages originally contemplated, namely, 2100 in the aggregate. In many cases a little variation in the thickness of the volumes will necessarily take place; but the Publisher pledges himself to supply each year complete works, and that the six volumes shall contain the quantity of matter stated in his original Prospectus.
The volumes will appear in the following order :
Shenstone's Poetical Works,
The Poetical Works of Blair, Bruce, Logan,
Beattie, and Falconer,
1st Feb. 1855.
EDINBURGH, March 1854.
With Life, Critical Dissertation, and
REV. GEORGE GILFILLAN.
JAMES NICHOL, 9 NORTH BANK STREET.
LONDON: JAMES NISBET AND CO.
DUBLIN: W. ROBERTSON.
