THE

SELECT BRITISH ESSAYISTS.

A Series planned to consist of half a dozen volumes, comprising the Representative Papers of The Spectator, Tatler, Guardian, Rambler, Lounger, Mirror, Looker-On, etc., etc.

Edited with Introduction, and Biographical Sketches of the Authors, by john Habberton.

This series has been planned to preserve, and to present in a form at once attractive and economical, the permanently valuable portions of those standard productions of the Essayists, which, as well for the perfection of their English style, as for the sterling worth of their matter, are deservedly perennial.
