The poetical translations with which the work so extensively abounds are uniformly taken from authors whose reputation as translators, is established beyond a peradventure- but as each translation will indicate the source whence it is taken, any farther reference here to the subject, would be superfluous.With these brief remarks, the author sends forth to the world this second literary venture, fondly hoping that it may be wafted over the sea of public opinion by as favoring gales, and finally be moored in as safe a haven, as its predecessor.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
