ADVERTISEMENT.



Several years have elapsed since the publishers of the present
volume collected the various detached pieces of Mrs. Hemans'
poetry, and gave them to the public, in connection with the poetry
of Heber and Pollock, in a single volume. Many additional effu-
sions from her pen have since been published in the British jour-
nals ; these have been industriously sought for, and superadded,
in this new edition, to the number contained in the prior publica-
tion. To suit the convenience of those who desire to possess the
works of Mrs. Hemans separately, the productions of the before-
mentioned authors are not included in the present edition.

The publishers believe that this volume contains all the poems
of Mrs. Hemans which have hitherto been published j and that,
therefore, it may be considered as a complete edition of her works.

Philadelphia, October, 1840. (3)
