This Edition of the TALES and Novels of Miss EDGEWORTH, which, in conformity with the present prevailing taste, is embellished with Plates, and presented to the Public in Monthly Volumes, will consist of Castle Rackrent, Irish Bulls, The Moral Tales, Popular Tales, Tales of Fashionable Life, The Modern Griselda, Belinda, Leonora, Patronage, Harrington, and Ormond, and a few smaller pieces. It is not intended to include in it any of those writings of Miss Edgeworth which are of a more juvenile character than the Moral Tales, a smaller size being deemed more appropriate. Of these a fitter opportunity for speaking will occur hereafter: at present it is only necessary to say, that there are few persons who have not, in their earliest years, experienced the greatest pleasure, and imbibed the highest moral truths, from the perusal of the “Early Lessons” and “ The Parent's Assistant.” • Rosamond and Frank," " The Little Dog Trusty,” and “ The Cherry Orchard,” will not be easily forgotten by them; and in their after years they will delight to renew, and will profit by renewing, their early acquaintance, by a perusal of works from the same pen, but adapted to maturer age.
