GENTLE READER, in perusing this book, be pleased to understand that I have only wandered in the fair fields of Literature, to gather here and there

a flower which struck me as tributary to the homage civilized man, in every country, is ready to pay to the fairest portion of creation. There are thousands still unculled ; but my object in this little work has been rather to present a select bouquet of literary blossoms, than to attempt to collect all that may

be found in so fertile a domain as that devoted

by Man to the exaltation of WOMAN.
