"LALLA BOOKÐ,“ “ODES OF ANACRBON,"
A NEW EDITION.
The public have long felt the want of a work of the char
acter now offered them, the editions of this author's poems
heretofore published being too expensive to come within the reach of the many; and it is to supply a vacuüm of this kind
that the present volume is offered. The author's greatest
production, and the one from which he has derived his well
deserved fame, - Lalla Rookh, - has been preserved entire,
with the principal portion of the “Odes of Anacreon,"
“ Irish Melodies,” and “National Airs,” to which has been
added a careful selection from the remainder of his works,
under the title of “ Miscellaneous Poems.“
