HARPER'S FAMILY LIBRARY.
Hereafter, in addition to those works published in London, under the title of "The Family Library," those also published under the titles of "The National Library," and the "Edinburgh Cabinet Library," will be incorporated in HARPER'S FAMILY LIBRARY; and to render the latter still more worthy of the liberal and increasing patronage it receives, the Publishers propose embracing in it, besides the preceding, such other works of peculiar interest and value as may appear in the various Libraries and Miscellanies now printing in Europe, which are not above specified. These productions, as they emanate from the press, will be submitted to a committee of literary gentlemen for inspection; and none will be reprinted, but such as shall be found calculated to sustain the exalted character which this Library has already acquired.
In addition to these acquisitions, several well-known writers have been engaged to prepare for it works of an American character, on interesting and popular subjects.
Every distinct subject will be comprehended in one volume, or at most in three volumes, which may form either a portion of the series, or a complete work by itself; and each volume will be embellished with appropriate engravings.
The entire series will be the production of authors of eminence, who have acquired celebrity by former literary labours, and whose names, as they appear in succession, will afford the surest guarantee to the public for the satisfactory manner in which the subjects will be treated.
Such is the plan by which it is intended to form an American Family Library, comprising all that is valuable in those branches of knowledge which most happily combine amusement with instruction. The utmost care will be taken, not only to exclude whatever can have an injurious influence on the mind, but to embrace every thing calculated to strengthen the best and most salutary impressions.
With these arrangements and facilities, the publishers flatter themselves that they shall be enabled to present to their fellow-citizens a work of unparalleled merit, and embracing subjects adapted to all classes of readers. Meanwhile, the very moderate price at which it is charged renders more extensive patronage necessary for its support and prose · cution. The immediate encouragement, therefore, of those who approve of the plan and execution of the work is respectfully solicited. The preceding volumes may be obtained in complete sets, or in separate numbers, from the principal booksellers throughout the United States
