FOREWORD TO SECOND EDITION
The call for a reprint of this book has afforded the opportunity to
correct some errors and to make several additions to the notes.
In withholding his name from the title page the editor sought not so
much to conceal his identity as to avoid the appearance of a parade in
what was to him the unwonted field of polite literature. As, however,
he is neither ashamed of the book nor essays the rôle of
A violet by a mossy stone
Half hidden from the eye,
he now and here signs his name.
