Excerpt from The Poetical Works of Leigh Hunt
In the notes at the end of the book will be found many variant readings which for one reason or another I have excluded from the foot-notes a selection from Hunt's own prefaces and notes; a few poems probably but not certainly Hunt's, which seemed worthy of rescue from the periodicals where they made their first and only appearance some hitherto uncollected or unpublished poems which were discovered too late for insertion in their proper places and a list of other poems by or attributed to Hunt but not reprinted in this volume, specifying the volume, periodical, miscellany, or other source where they are printed. The bibliography of Hunt's poems which is thus provided is, I am aware, incomplete, but I can fairly claim to have traced many poems back to earlier appearances than have been hitherto recorded, and rescued some pieces worthy of their place in a volume of his collected poems.
My obligations are many first to my friend Mr. Frederick page, for his unwearying researches into obscure periodicals.
