'An admirable little book; perhaps the best of its kind in existence.
We can heartily commend this charming Calendar of Verse. If we had not praised it as a string of pearls, we should have called it a book of gold.'-Glasgow Herald.
'Delightful to handle and to look at, delightful to read in. No extract exceeds twenty lines. The purpose of the volume is not that of introduction, much less of substitution, but rather to remind and refresh.' Speaker.
'A delightful volume of keynotes to English poetry by which we may strike a whole world of remembrance or discovery. It will be welcome to all those who, in these over-thoughtful days, are able, like common-sense Herrick, to live merrily and trust in good verses."-Daily Chronicle.
'The selections have been well made, and any who wish to store the mind day by day with high thoughts nobly expressed will find the book very much to their liking.'
'The dainty volume will be found a pleasant enough companion. It is prettily got up, and the inevitable introduction from the graceful pen of Mr. George Saintsbury.'-Manchester Examiner.
'Those in search of a very tasteful gift-book could not do better than procure this Calendar of Verse. The selections are very choice and varied, many of the best English poets having been laid under contribution, from Shakespeare to William Morris.'-Birmingham Daily Gazette.
'The book will please poetry lovers.'-Whitehall Review.
