Excerpt from Curiosities of Literature, and the Literary Character Illustrated: With Curiosities of American Literature

The design of this work is to stimulate the literary curiosity of those, who, with a taste for its tranquil pursuits, are impeded in their acquire ments.' The characters, the events, and the singularities of modern litera ture, are not always familiar even to those who excel in classical studies. But a more numerous part of mankind, by their occupations, or their in dolence, both unfavourable causes to literary improvement, require to ob tain the materials for thinking, by the easiest and readiest means. This work has proved useful: it has been reprinted abroad, and it has been translated; and the honour which many writers at home have conferred on it, by referring to it, has exhilarated the zealous labour which seven editions have necessarily exacted.
