and authority of his widely honored name, and comes before the reading public with an indorsement second to none in the world of letters.

The Publishers desire to return their cordial thanks for the courtesy freely extended to them, by which many copyrighted American poems have been allowed to appear in this collection. In regard to a large number of them, permission has been accorded by the authors themselves; other poems, having been gathered as waifs and strays, have been necessarily used without especial authority, and where due credit is not given, or where the authorship may have been erroneously ascribed, future editions will afford opportunity for the correction, which will be gladly made. Particular acknowledgments are offered to Messrs. D. Appleton & Co. for extracts from Gen. James Grant Wilson's handsome edition of the works of Fitz-Greene Halleck, and from the poems of William Cullen Bryant; to Messrs. Harper & Brothers for a few poems of Charles G. Halpine; to Messrs. J. B. Lippincott & Co. for quotations from the writings of T. Buchanan Read ; to Messrs. Charles Scribner & Co. for an extract from Dr. J. G. Holland’s “Bitter-Sweet”; and more especially to the house of Messrs. Fields, Osgood, & Co., - whose good taste, liberality, and intelligent enterprise have given them an unequalled list of American poetical writers, comprising many of the most eminent poets of the land, — for their courtesy in the liberal extracts granted from the writings of Thomas Bailey Aldrich, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, James Russell Lowell, Florence Percy, John Godfrey Saxe, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Edmund Clarence Stedman, Bayard Taylor, John Townsend Trowbridge, and John Greenleaf Whittier.

With these brief explanations and acknowledgments, the “Library of Poetry and Song” is placed before the public, with the hope that it will be deemed worthy of its title.

ADVERTISEMENT TO THE TWENTIETH EDITION.
(REVISED.)

THE Publishers take this opportunity of expressing their gratification at the very flattering reception given to the “Library of Poetry and Song,” the best evidence of which is the fact of the 20th edition having been called for in little more than six months from the publication of the first. It has seemed to supply a real public need.

The present edition has been revised and improved in various ways, and the observations of the numerous critics of the work have been diligently consulted, with a view to make it perfect in all its details, and the recognized standard work

of the kind. Many new poems have also been added. -É
