Excerpt from The Beauties of Sterne: Including Many of His Letters and Sermons, All His Pathetic Tales, Humorous Descriptions, and Most Distinguished Observations of Life To obviate in some measure those founded 'objections, has been the object. Of the present edition, in which thereader, whether of a grave or gay com plexion, will find an equal attention paid him - the sprightly reader will find, new for the first time, several scenes of such exquisite fancy-such true Shan dean colouring, that he'will be aston ished they could be overlooked by any who professed to enumerate the Beau ties of Sterne. - such are, Mr. Shandy's Beds of J ustice-n - Dr. Slop and Susan nah-mparson Yorick's Horse - and ma ny other pictures, of the same tint. The heart of Sensibility will receiye a melancholy pleasure in the contempla tion of Yorick's untimely fate - and the mind, in seardh of those duties we owe to god and Man, will receive fresh incentives to persevere in well-doing, from that most excellent discourse upon Charity The Case of Elijah and the Widow of Zarephath considered. A few of his most admired Letters are also xn ow 'added. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
