This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1860 edition. Excerpt: ...have I been yet fortunate enough to meet with the edition in question. Since this was written, I have been favoured by a communication from M.

P. 5. Begone, c.--Compare WilJielm Meister (Book ii. ch. ii.), in which somewhat similar notions of the poet's vocation are put into the mouth of the hero. P. 6.
