Not illustrated. 1849 edition. Excerpt: ... is mulcted of all praise. Tell me, ye that strive in vain to cramp and dwarf the soul. Wherefore should it cease to be, and when shall essence die? It is, --and therefore shall be, --till just obstacle opposeth: Show no ante for change, and reason Ie;aneth-to continuance.
