Excerpt from Schiller Gallery: Containing Characters From Schiller's Works
Works on art must not only explain but justify them selves if their vitality is not sufficient to do this, all the recommendations in the world cannot save them from an early death.
The author of the explanatory text of this work, acting in conjunction with Arthur von Ramberg, in fathering those children of the Muse which are here offered to the public, prefers therefore to send this book into the world without any sponsor, and to let it make its own way. The result has justified his decision, for the voices of the police authorities of criticism, who have examined into the legitimacy of these brain-children, as they have appeared one by one, or serially, so to speak, have agreed in this at least, that they have sound bodily health, if not fine manners; and the public, whose business it is to support them, has received them with surprising readiness.
