EPUB

so rich and novel a variety ? Here we have succeeded in getting into presentable shape, such choice productions as we used to lend upon bond and mortgage, so precious were our copies of them, and so fearful were we that they would never be returned. We have been years and years in making these selections, and this Library is our pride. With the assurance that the work contains nothing which is not amply worthy of preservation, it is submitted to the public as a ticasure of rare story, poetry and moral, well worth every one's owning.
