ADVERTISEMENT.

Several years have elapsed since the publishers of the present volume collected the various detached pieces of Mrs. Hemans' poetry, and gave them to the public, in connection with the poetry of Heber and Pollock, in a single volume. Many additional effusions from her pen have since been published in the British journais; these have been industriously sought for, and superadded, in this new edition, to the number contained in the prior publication. To suit the convenience of those who desire to possess the works of Mrs. Hemans separately, the productions of the beforementioned authors are not included in the present edition.

The publishers believe that this volume contains all the poems of Mrs. Hemans which have hitherto been published; and that, therefore, it may be considered as a complete edition of her works.

Philadelphia, October, 1840.
