Description

Excerpt from Notes and Queries, Vol. 8: A Medium of Intercommunication for Literary Men, General Readers, Etc.; July-December, 1877 In glancing over these various theories, the principal thing that strikes one is the marvellously small basis, and in most the utter absence, of any facts to sustain the conclusions arrived at. Imagi nation and conjecture raise up a house of cards, which a breath suffices to destroy. In the following remarks I propose to confine myself to facts which may be tested by any one who will take the trouble to investigate them, and simply to point out the direction towards which these facts will lead us. I have no theory to maintain, and am equally content whatever the result may be. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
