To present to the young men of England a compendious Digest of the Life, Writings, and Character of the noblest and sublimest of their countrymen, is the object of the Editor of this volume.
No book upon this illustrious man has appeared hitherto so condensed, yet so full and various as this; the true opinions of England's greatest son are presented, without the veilings and trammellings of sectarianism; and it has been compiled under the feeling that this hoary and blind old Man of God, should be the darling, the Eikon Basilike of all young men.
Love and reverence might have expanded the volume to a heavier bulk and price; but in this case, the main intention of the Compiler would have been defeated, which was to furnish as good a copy of the venerable portrait as he could, for the sum of one shilling and sixpence.
