THE BLIND:

OR

THE LIVES OF SUCH AS HAVE DISTINGUISHED THEMSELVES

AS POETS, PHILOSOPHERS, ARTISTS, &c.

BY JAMES WILSON,

WHO HAS BEEN BLIND FROM HIS INFANCY.

FOURTH EDITION.

“But not to me returns
Day, or the sweet approach of ev'n or morn,
Or sight of vernal bloom, or summer's rose ;
Or flocks, or herds, or human face divine;
But cloud instead, and ever-during dark
Surrounds me,

from the cheerful ways of men
Cut off, and for the book of knowledge fair
Presented with an universal blank.”
