I DEDICATE THIS BOOK.
It is somewhat unusual, I believe, for an author to dedicate a book to his publisher ; but the unflagging industry of Mr. Hotten, in his double capacity of author and bookseller, has always surprised me, and as some testimony to this activity, and to the fact that he has found-or made-time to write or edit some seven-and-twenty different works, I have, without asking his permission, much pleasure in penning the above.
