Excerpt from Poetry: Selected for the Use of Schools and Families, From the Most Approved Authors, Ancient Modern

There are certainly many Books of Poetry already before the world but the taste of the public is fastidious or capricious no one volume has ever won universal suffrage, and there still exists a longing after something unpossessed. It is this unsatisfied craving which eu courages me to cast another little book on the waters.

Fifty years ago, Aikin's Poetry stood unrivalled as a simple, pure, and elegant selection of pieces adapted for youthful minds. But the rapid progress of education in the last half-century has rendered a higher standard of poetry requisite even in the schoolroom and the school boy, whose father wept over The Beggar Man, and enjoyed the mingled humour and pathos of the Mouse's Petition, repeats with delight the bold lyrics of Camp bell, or aspires to emulate the glorious lays of Macaulay. The 19th century has been rich in poetic genius; the discoveries of science, the wide diffusion of useful know ledge, have failed to quench the pure and ennobling ame of poetry. A long catalogue of immortal names - Byron.
