PREFACE.

THE following collection has been made in compliance with the wish of many teachers that the Editor should publish another volume of poetry as a sequel to the “Poetical Reader.”

By employing a smaller, though clear type, he has been able to include several poems of considerable length as well as a large number of short pieces.

This volume will be found peculiarly rich in poems which now appear for the first time in a Reading Book—a feature for which the Editor is greatly indebted to the many authors and publishers who have generously permitted him to insert valuable copyright poems. Among the latter he desires especially to mention Messrs. Blackwood and Sons., Macmillan and Co., Masters and Co., and Strahan and Co.

November, 1871.
