Trubner's Bibliographical Guide to American Literature : A Classed List of Books Published in the United States of America During the Last Forty Years; With Bibliographical Introduction, Notes, and Alphabetical Index (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Trubner's Bibliographical Guide to American Literature: A Classed List of Books Published in the United States of America During the Last Forty Years; With Bibliographical Introduction, Notes, and Alphabetical Index The history of the origin and progress of a book is said to be more interesting to its author than to the general reader. However this axiom may hold good in most cases, mine would seem to be an exception, and to call upon me to explain why so large a volume upon American Literature should have been compiled by a foreigner; to state the circumstances in which it originated; to point out the objects I had in view; and to define the plan upon which it has been executed.
