ROM this fair point of present bliss,
Where we together stand,
Let me look back once more, and trace That long and desert land, Wherein till now was cast my lot, and I could live,
and thou wert not.
Strange that my heart could beat, and know
Alternate joy and pain,
And clouds could pass in rain,
their noiseless silver feet.
What had I then? a Hope, that grew
Each hour more bright and dear, The flush upon the eastern skies
That showed the sun was near :Now night has faded far away, my sun has risen,
and it is day
A dim Ideal of tender grace
In my soul reigned supreme; Too noble and too sweet I thought
To live, save in a dreamWithin thy heart to-day it lies, and looks on me
from thy dear eyes.
Some gentle spirit,-Lote I thought,
Built many a shrine of pain;
The worship was not vain,
And Grief, too, held her vigil there ;
With unrelenting sway
Throwing my flowers away
all thine own.
Fair Joy was there—her fluttering wings
At times she strove to raise ;
Listening long eager days:
Love, to welcome thine.
Thus I can read thy name throughout,
And, now her task is done,
Was thine, beloved one,
dear, to thee.

TOOKS COURT, CHANCERY LANE.
In this Series the Works of each Author will be carefully collated with the
these the best editions extant.
POWER’S Confessio Amantis, with Life by Dr. Pauli,
and a Glossary. 3 vols. 21. 2s. In antique calf, 31. 6s. Only a limited number of Copies printed.
This important work is so scarce that it can seldom be met with even in large libraries. It is wanting in nearly
every collection of English Poetry. “ His English Poem is here reprinted in the handsomest form which perhaps it ever assumed, and we have seldom seen three octavo volumes bearing so inviting an appearance. Little was said and less known about the Confessio Amantis, until the publication of The History of English Poetry'in 1781. Chalmers ventured to reprint it in his enlarged edition of the British Poets,' a work admirable in its design if it had not been disfigured by notoriously imperfect typography. In this respect the volumes now before us seem almost faultless, for although we have not had an opportunity of collating the Confessio Amantis' with any manuscripts, it is obvious that the utmost pains have been taken, and that Dr. Pauli availed himself not only of Caxton's and Berthelet's editions, but of all accessible written resources, including the celebrated copy in the Stafford Collection. . . On the whole, it has rarely been our lot to review so creditable a reproduction of any poet."-Athenæum.
Bishop Butler's Analogy of Religion; with Analytical Index, by
the Rev. Edward Steere, LL.D. 12s. In antique calf, 11. Is.
“ The present edition has been furnished with an Index of the Tests of Scripture quoted, and an Index of Words and Things considerably fuller than any hitherto published. These and the carefulness of the typography are small things in themselves perhaps, but he who values Butler at his true worth, will value any assistance in reading and referring to
him.”—Editor's Preface. Bishop Jeremy Taylor's Rule and Exercises of Holy Living and
Dying. 2 vols. 11. 1s. In antique calf, 21. 2s. Herbert's Poems and Remains; with S. T. Coleridge's Notes,
and Life by Izaak Walton: Revised, with additional Notes, by Mr. J. Yeowell.
