This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed.

Would or could he have written anything without the studies of the antiques? Vol. ix.--a. 113 Is a man or woman invigorated, made cleaner, grander, sweeter, by his poems...
