Excerpt from Tales of the Good Woman, Vol. 1 of 2
To prevent any misconception, the Publishers take this Opportunity to state, that in a few in stances the titles of the works included in this se ries have been changed. That of Koningsmarke, who is an historical character, did not suﬂiciently indicate that it was an American story; and that of the New Mirror for Travellers, which is alto gether a satirical work, was calculated to produce, and did produce, an idea in many purchasers that it was a mere traveller's guide. The Chronicles of Gotham were originally intended as a continua tion of Tales of the Good Woman; but it happen ing that a work was just at the time republished here with a similar title, it seemed proper that some other should be adopted. They now form the sec ond volume of Tales of the Good Woman, as originally designed. These alterations can pro duce no deception in the public, since it is suffi ciently known that, with the exception of a single volume of dramatic writings, the whole of this collection is a republication.
