THE

POETS OF AMERICA:

ILLUSTRATED

BY ONE OF HER PAINTERS.

“The world is full of Poetry.-Its words
Are few, but deep and solemn; and they break
Fresh from the fount of feeling."

PERCIVAL.

ADVERTISMENT TO THE ENGLISH EDITION.

In introducing to the notice of the British public a work containing some of the finest specimens of American poetry, it is unnecessary for the publisher to do more than to direct attention to the taste and feeling displayed in the embellishments by which the volume is illustrated.

It will be seen from the prefatory notice of the editor, that should the present attempt prove successful, it is his intention to follow it up by another volume. The publisher feels assured that whatever may be its fate in America, the work cannot fail to be acceptable in this country, opening up as it does to the lovers of poety new sources of enjoyment; and at the same time affording such pleasing and satisfactory evidence of the progress of the fine arts among our Transatlantic brethren.
