THE NEW EDITION.

THE rapidity with which the large impression published of this Volume of the Lives of the Queens of England has been disposed of, by rendering an immediate reprint necessary, has afforded an opportunity of effecting a careful revision of this portion of the work. Very considerable additions have been made of new matter connected with the personal history of Henry VIII. and his Queens, which has been elicited since the publication of the First Edition. Much care has also been bestowed in authenticating those curious facts in the lives of Katharine of Arragon and Anne Boleyn, which have been preserved in the writings of foreign chroniclers, whose works are at present little known to English readers, and have certainly never been rendered familiar by translation. The grateful feelings excited by the favour with which these royal female biographies have been received, cannot be better acknowledged than by increasing efforts to render them still more deserving of popularity.
