NOTE

Of the Essays, contained in this volume, the Henry Fielding appeared in a complete edition of the novelist's works published in 1903 by Mr. W. Heinemann ; the Smollett served as an introduction to the edition of Messrs. Constable and Co. (1899); the Hazlitt prefaced Mr. Dent's complete edition of that writer's works (1902-4); and the Robert Burns was printed as a “Terminal Essay in the Centenary Edition published by Messrs. T. C. and E. C. Jack in 1896. To these publishers thanks are due for permission, generously given, to reprint.

The biographical sketches, here entitled Byron's World, served as notes to an edition of Byron's Letters, of which one volume only was published by Mr. W. Heinemann in 1897 ; the Othello, printed in 1903, has not been traced to the place of its original publication ; the other Essays, included in this volume, made their first appearance in the Pall Mall Magazine. We take this opportunity of making the proper acknowledgments.
