THE Publisher of “THE NATIonAL Cyclopædia” proposes to issue a Companion SER1es to that work, whose principal value is that of a book of authentic reference, in every department of Useful Knowledge. “THE NATIONAL LIBRARY” is to be essentially a book of Entertaining Reading, realizing, in a considerable degree, Lord Bacon's definition of the purpose of Studies, “for delight, for ornament, and for ability.’ Its scope is large and comprehensive. Under a variety of forms, but with a definite object, it will embrace a very complete range of English Literature. The public favour which has been bestowed upon one portion of the general plan under the title of “Half-Hours with the Best Authors,” has led the Publisher to believe that a Series, extensive and varied enough to claim the title of a National Library, will be acceptable to that immense body of readers who desire to range over a large field of instruction and entertainment in a small number of books. It is impossible not to be aware that a love of elegant literature is rapidly extending; and that the national intellect is becoming healthier and purer in proportion as the people are growing familiar with the great writers who have contributed so much to the formation of the English mind. The glory of England is built upon her literature. It was not in the spirit of hyperbole that a living poet said, “We must be free, or die, that speak the tongue That Shakspere spake, the faith and morals hold That Milton held.”

A nation is made by its thoughts; and, when the loftiest thoughts are familiar to a nation in its ‘household' books, men cannot retrograde. The time is come when the highest things in our literature ought to be rendered accessible to all ; when much of that formerly considered the property of the mere scholar should be divested of its dry and pedantic form, and the seeds which commentators and critics have sown in a barren ground should be made to produce rich fruits and flowers. It is believed that we are arrived at that point in the diffusion of knowledge when such a “Library” as the one now proposed may be most acceptable.

In Eight handsome Octavo Volumes may be comprehended, by analysis and extract, illustrated by critical, historical, and biographical notices, the most interesting portions of many hundred writers. Of this Serie the “Half-Hours with the Best Authors,” reprinted in the compact and handsome form which will distinguish “The National Library,” will constitute one-fourth. The work is entirely miscellaneous. But the other Volumes of the Library will each be devoted to some class of the great teachers of our country; for example, the DRAMAtists—the HistoralANs—the ORAtoRs—the LETTER-WRITERs. It is unnecessary at present to enter upon any more minute specification of our plan.

*** “The DRAMATIC History of ENGLAND,” which was intended to form the first work of this Series, will appear in a more advanced stage of the publication. “The National Library” will commence with a Volume, which will be completed in Six Parts.
