The following selections were, for the greate est part, made from the most eminent writers, which acknowledgment supersedes the neces. sity of attending to the customary mode of adding the author's name to each individual seolection.
The Author acknowledges with gratitude the liberal patronage his Art of Reading has received from the publick in the first edition. He now offers the tenth edition, with such alierations only as were thought necessary to render the work more improved. But in future, the Art of Reading will retain its present form, should it meet so favourable a reception from the public as to encourage any future editions.. Tt solicits, however, no favour but what it merits: from its real utility ; neither does it design any competition with similar compilations, but what the judicious are willing to allow it, upon au candid and impartial review of its contents.
