SEVENTH EDITION.

In this edition of “Familiar Quotations," many authors are cited who have not been represented in any former edition, and numerous phrases added which have been gathered by patient gleanings from the old fields.

To the quotations from Shakespeare more than three hundred lines have been added ; and those from Emerson, Gibbon, Johnson, Lamb, Lowell, Macaulay, Montgomery, Pope, and other authors, have been largely increased in number.

The notes and appendix contain much new matter, and the index has been carefully revised as well as enlarged.

CAMBRIDGE June, 1875.
