THIS Volume is a fresh contribution, on the part of the Author, towards a uniform Edition of his publications. Of the six portions, of which it consists, the first appeared in the British Magazine in the spring of 1836, under the title of "Home Thoughts Abroad:' As that title was intended for a series of papers which were never written, and is unsuitable to a single instalment of them, another heading has been selected for it, answering more exactly to the particular subject of which it treats. The second and third are the 83rd and 85th numbers of the "Tracts for the Times," and were published in the 5th volume, in the year 1838.
The fourth, "The Tamworth Reading Room," was written for the Times newspaper, and appeared in its columns in February 1841, being afterwards published as a pamphlet. The letters, of which it consists, were written off as they were successively called for by the parties who paid the author the compliment of employing him, and are necessarily immethodical as compositions.
The same may with still more reason be said of the Letters which follow, entitled, "Who's to blame?" written in the spring of 1855, for an intimate friend. At that time the editor of the newspaper in which they appeared.
The Review, which closes the Volume, was published in the Month Magazine of June 1866.
