ADVERTISEMENT.

Though the Writer has looked through many volumes, in quest of lines adapted for his little work, yet doubtless there are many books, in which may be found some of the brightest gems of poetry, to which he has not had access; and he cannot but think, that though widely scattered, there must be some existing Epitaphs, which, if they do not surpass, are at least equal to the very best which will be read in this volume. The Writer begs, therefore, to solicit of those, who may take an interest in his design, that they will do him the kindness to send him any Epitaphs which have been justly admired for their poetic beauty, and Scriptural sentiment ; addressed for “ The Author of a Volume of Epitaphs,” Mr. PARKER's, Bookseller, West Strand, London.
