the writings of all noted authors of that
period, among which are Lord Bacon,
Sir Walter Raleigh, Burton, Bishop
Hall, John Knox. Milton. Dryden, Jere
my Taylor, and others. The work is of
such well-known excellence that every
person of literary taste possesses or de
sires to possess some edition of it. This
edition is complete, in eight handy vol
umes, excellent in typography, paper
and binding, revised to date, and sold at
prices so low, that a common question
which the publishers have to answer is.

for the entire work ?"' It is sold only to
subscribers direct, the large discount
usually given to dealers and agents, be
ing allowed to the subscriber instead.
