NOTE

[ocr errors]

The publication, in a volume, of the following Essays and Addresses is in accordance with the intention of their author. Most of them had been revised by him with this end in view. The only one of them concerning which there is a doubt, whether he would have published it in its present form, is the paper on “Richard III.” With this he was not satisfied, and he hesitated in regard to printing it. It has seemed to me of interest enough to warrant its publication.'

The Essay on Gray was in large part written more than ten years before it was printed in the “New Princeton Review,” in 1886. The Essay on the “Areopagitica” was written at the request of the Grolier Club, of New York, for an introduction to an edition of the work specially printed for the Club. I am indebted to the Club for permission to include it in this volume.

CHARLES ELIOT NORTON. CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS, 16 NOVEMBER, 1891.
