Or for love's sake, a word that loves all men,
Or for men's sake, the authors of these women;
Or women's sake, by whom we men are men;
Let us once lose our oaths, to find ourselves,
Or else we lose ourselves to keep our oaths:
It is religion to be thus forsworn:

For charity itself fulfils the law;

And who can sever love from charity?

LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST, A. 4, s. 3.

WOOING, WEDDING, AND
REPENTING.

HEAR me, Hero; Wooing, wedding, and repenting, is as a Scotch jig, a measure, and a cinque-pace: the first suit is hot and hasty, like a Scotch jig, and full as fantastical; the wedding, mannerly-modest, as a measure full of state and ancientry; and then comes repentance, and, with his bad legs, falls into the cinque-pace faster and faster, till he sink into his grave.

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, a. 2, s. 1.

WORLDLY INEXPERIENCE;-ITS

DISADVANTAGES.

WHAT should we speak of,

When we are old as you? when we shall hear
The rain and wind beat dark December, how,
In this our pinching cave, shall we discourse
The freezing hours away? We have seen
nothing;

We are beastly; subtle as the fox, for prey;
Like warlike as the wolf, for what we eat:

Our valour is, to chase what flies; our cage
We make a quire, as doth the prison'd bird,
And sing our bondage freely.

CYMBELINE, A. 3, s. 3.

WRETCHED POSITION.

THIS it is to have a name in great men's fellowship: I had as lief have a reed that will do me no service, as a partizan I could not heave. To be called into a huge sphere, and not to be seen to move in't, are the holes where eyes should be, which pitifully disaster the cheeks.

ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA, A. 2, s. 7.

WRINKLED SMILES.

SORROW, that is couch'd in seeming gladness, Is like that mirth fate turns to sudden sadness. TROILUS AND CRESSIDA, A. 1, s. 1.

YOU MUST KEEP YOUR OWN
SECRETS.

Is your man secret? Did you ne'er hear say—
Two may keep counsel, putting one away?

NEW EDITION, CORRECTED AND IMPROVED.

Crown Octavo, the most beautiful One Volume Edition of Shakespeare ever produced, illustrated with a magnificent Portrait after Droeshout, engraved by Robinson, and emblematical fly-leaves, exquisitely engraved by Vizetelly, gilt cloth, price 16s.,

THE

Lansdowne Shakespeare :

This beautiful ONE VOLUME Edition of the Works of Shakespeare is without a parallel in the annals of printing. It has been produced regardless of cost, that it may take a permanent position, as a gentleman's handbook, at home and abroad.

Collier's text has been most carefully compared and revised, and, for the first time in any edition of Shakespeare, the Stage Directions are distinguished by being printed in red ink, and so are the Names of the Speakers, which appear, not at the beginning of the first line of a speech in an abridged form, as heretofore, but in a distinct line above each speech, in the centre of the column. In this way, as it is remarked in the "Examiner," the inconvenience which usually attends the reading a compressed type is almost entirely obviated, thus rendering this edition more convenient, either for reading or reference, than any other.

To persons conversant with the cost of printing, this volume will appear extraordinary for its cheapness, and the great care required in its production-nearly 1200 pages of a minute character being printed in different coloured inks.

Copies are also kept bound in morocco, gilt
edges, price 25s.
