Excerpt from Class Book of Prose: Consisting of Selections From Distinguished English and American Authors, From Chaucer to the Present Day
In making his selections for the present work, the cornpiler has purposely drawn less freely from authors of the present day; not from holding them in less esteem, but because they are already in a thousand forms acces sible to every body that can read. By adopting this course, room was left, without unduly encumbering the work, for more capious extracts from those great store houses of thought which are in a measure accessible only to the few.
The work is divided into two parts; The Class Book of Poetry, and The Class Book of Prose.
