ON THE

LIFE, WRITINGS, AND GENIUS

OF

AKENSIDE:

WITH

SOME ACCOUNT OF HIS FRIENDS.

BY CHARLES BUCKE,

AUTHOR OF THE BEAUTIES, HARMONIES, AND SUBLIMITIES OF

NATURE.

"The spacious west,

And all the teeming regions of the south,
Hold not a quarry to the curious flight
Of knowledge, half so tempting and so fair
As MAN to MAN."

Pleasures of Imagination.

TO

JOSEPH M'CREA, ESQ.

DEAR SIR,

To whom can I dedicate these pages with so much propriety, as to One, whose surgical skill preserved the life of a son; and to whose never-sleeping kindness and consideration I have been indebted, on a thousand different occasions?

"No years can wash these grateful thoughts away!"

I would have sought leave to signify my respect; but I would not be denied. Accept, then, this memorial as it is meant; and believe me to be,

Your very faithful

and affectionate friend,

THE AUTHOR.

London.
