Tragedy of Hamlet, 326
TO THE STEREOTYPE EDITION.
THOUGH the merit of the Lessons, a new edition of which is now presented to the public, is well appreciated, yet complaints have been made, and very justly, that most of the editions, in commor use, are not only badly executed, but extremely incorrect. The present. edition, it is believed, will be found free from both these objectiors. Its typographical execution addresses itself to the eye, and cannot fail, it is thought, to make such an impression, as will supersede the necessity of verbal commendation. And it is presumed, that on examination, its correctness will be found to be equal to its mechanical execution, the greatest care having been given to produce an accurate, as well as a handsome edition of the work.
There is added, to the present edition, an abridgment of Mr. Walker's rules for the pronunciation of the Greek and Latin proper names, with a list of such classical names as are to be met with in this and other elementary works.
Plymouth, January 3d. 1825.
