Riverside Edition of the writings of Mr. Longfellow was published in $6. It contained a complete collection of the prose and verse, including tran.1,- ons; several hitherto uncollected pieces were brought into the various groups, 1the aim was to make it definitive. The editor, H. E. Scudder, relying largely 311 the biography by the poets brother, the Reverend Samuel Longfellow, proled a considerable apparatus of introductions and notes, bibliographical and ilitrative. Reference was had also to the original issue of the several poems, dvariations from the text were indicated in foot-notes. No subsequent publition has added materially to the history of the writings, and no works unknown that time have been discovered since. The Riverside Edition, therefore, will mbtless remain as authoritative and complete. It is published in eleven volraes, two being given to prose, six to verse, and three to the translation of Dante. The present edition of Mr. Longfellow spoetical writings is based upon the ,iverside. It contains the entire text as published in the six volumes of verse, md such condensed bibliographical and other notes as seem desirable for the general reader and compatible with the limitations of a one-volume edition. A biographical sketch introduces the volume. The poems are given as nearly as anay be in their chronological order, but a table at the end of the volume indicates :his order more precisely. BOSTON, 4PABK STREET, October 1, 1893.
