Excerpt from Tales and Popular Fictions: Their Resemblance, and Transmission From Country to Country

Chance led me to write this work; and 'to print, or not to print' in days like these, was a question I debated for some time. The die is now cast, - the work is lying before me in sheets; and as I look at them, I cannot refrain from passing mentally in review the various divisions of my future readers.

First then, in fancy, I behold a band of youthful students, aged ten years and upwards, eager to gaze on pretty wood-cuts, to learn how Prince Cleomades carried off the Princess Claremond, and to fathom the mysteries of the Giant-killer, and of Whittington's Cat. My eye next rests on a train of fair and accomplished ladies, whose studies go beyond the mere novel, and who have a taste for the light kind of philosophy here to be found.
