JOHN WILLIAM INCHBOLD.

To you who have so dear a love of the Sonnet, and have sometimes so happily employed it in moments of release from professional labour, I gladly and affectionately dedicate this little volume. And I do this the more readily, because all that is most worthy in it comes from the noble masters of English verse, who impart to us, although in different language, the same joyinspiring lessons which our great artists teach upon canvas.
