The Poems of CUTHBERT SHAW and THOMAS RUSSELL. Edited, with an Introduction and Notes by Eric Partridge, M.A., B.Litt. Oxon., author of " Eighteenth-Century English Romantic Poetry," etc. Cr. 8vo., boards, with linen back and paper label. 7s. 6d. net.
Limited edition of 575 copies.
The Editor, a keen observer of XVIIIth Century Literature, brought out in 1924 his Eighteenth Century English Romantic Poetry." Among the lesser figures that he treated, he noted as especially interesting the ill-starred Cuthbert Shaw, whose verse was satirically and lyrically spontaneous, and that delicate cultured and delightful poet, Thomas Russell. And to this interest he has given realisation in the present volume, which includes all the known printed verse of these writers (both unjustly neglected) and a brief scholarly notice, which, biographical and critical, will indicate to students and general readers alike that here may be found an attractive emotional poet in Shaw and an exquisite soneteer and lyrist in Russell. Both serve to throw an intriguing side-light on a period that is either too often or too exclusively called the Century of Reason.

WILLIAMS. Seven Bibliographies of the Eighteenth Century. With Introductory Essays. By Iola A. Williams. The Authors dealt with are Goldsmith, Collins, Akenside, Shenstone, Sheridan, Armstrong, and Churchill. Demy 8vo. 18s. net.
Mr. Williams is so well known as the Bibliographical Expert of the LONDON MERCURY that he needs no introduction to that wide public which is interested in the science of books. This volume more than bears out his knowledge of the literature of the Eighteenth Century and also his extraordinary capacity for research. So complete is the bibliographical information that we venture to say that this volume will be for many years the standard work of reference on the first editions of these different authors.
