SAMUEL PEGGE.

TJIE END.

Of the Publishers of this Work may be had

ANONYMIANA;

OR,

TEN CENTURIES OF OBSERVATIONS

ON VARIOUS AUTHORS AND SUBJECTS;

(Compiled by the late very Learned and Reverend

Dr. PEGGE);

With a copious Index. Svo. Price 12s.

"Whether as an Antiquary, a classical, poetical, and historical Critick, a Biographer', or Enquirer into the Beauties and Niceties of Grammar and Languages, we find every where that Dr. Pbgge's remarks are not only striking and useful, but original; and, in this last respect, we have little hesitation iH preferring the Anonymiana to the greater part of the Works of this description, which have been lately published, either at home or abroad. There is scarcely a taste among the various divisions of human liking, that will not find something appropriate and gratitying. It would be impossible to withhold, in these times of levity, just praise from a Work that so ably combines * light reading' with * serious thinking.'"
