This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you.

PREFACE. 

volume concludes my work on the bibliography of the 
try of North America. 

ugh much interesting material was published in the de- 
)wing, the lateness of the period really bars it from being 
is "early." So many titles could be unearthed in the 
vered by the years 1821-1840 that a volume considerably 
an the present would be the result and little of interest 
antiquarian standpoint would result therefrom, 
period represented in the volume now oflFered is of im- 
from more than one standpoint, as it not only brings to 
names of several of the better-known names among the 
of the first quarter of the Nineteenth Century, but also 
fact that it covers two most important events in the early 
f the Nation, The Embargo and The War of 1812. 
brmer event is also of interest, as it introduced to Ameri- 
;rs the first poet of note which America had up to that 
duced. 

i^hile Bryant stands almost alone among the names cata- 
i the following pages as a writer of the first rank, many 
mes will be discovered of writers who are still remem- 
d whose works are yet read to some extent by all inter- 
the study of American Poetry — ^and there are such, 
nagazine and newspaper writers notwithstanding, 
•ugh the average book collector does not include Ameri- 
Ty in his itinerary, I firmly believe that this important 
f American Literature will not be much longer neglected, 
ese volumes shall in any way help toward that end I shall 
; than repaid for the interest I have taken in the subject. 
Dsing I wish to thank Mr. Harry L. Koopman and his 
he Brown University Library, and the other friends who 
m an interest in the work and have by their aid made my 

Oscar Wegeun.

some purpose known only to the publishers and author, as the copy I 
have seen was in the finest possible condition and in the original blue

tained half titles to the Argument and the poem itself, or they may have 
been blank leaves.
