In the accompanying biography of Shakspeare, they have drawn largely from that written by Dr. Symmons, and originally published with Mr. Singer's edition ; but, with the view of presenting all the important facts reļating to the personal history of the great Bard, they have added the “ New Facts regarding the Life of Shakspeare,” found in a letter addressed by J. Payne Collier to Thomas Armyot, and now reprinted in this country.

In short, the publishers have aimed to prepare an edition, both in regard to text and notes, which should be as accurate and clear as possible, under the most careful research of the accomplished scholar who has prepared the work for the press ; and in its combination of accuracy and elegance, they flatter themselves this will be found to be the most splendid edition ever presented to the American public.

PHILLIPS, SAMPSON, AND COMPANY.
