NOTICE TO THE FIFTH PART.

On the publication of the Fourth Part of this work, it seemed to me that I had surmounted the most difficult half of my undertaking, and that the remainder would proceed with increased speed. But I was mistaken, and have found the present Part the most difficult and troublesome of any, and accordingly it has been the longest in hand. My predecessor evidently slackened as he advanced, while I feel impelled by the love of my subject into an opposite course; and being by circumstances thrown more than ever on my own resources, my labours increase instead of diminish. Bibliographers will see that the present Part has received an unusual amount of attention; indeed, almost every principal article has been revised or enlarged. It may suffice here to mention a few; IRELAND, IRVING (Washington), JAMES (G. P. R.), JESTS, JOHNSON (Dr. S.), JUNIUS, KLOPSTOCK, KNIGHT (Charles), KOLMANN (my first master), KOTZEBUE, LAMARTINE, LANDOR, LARDNER (Dr.), LAMB (Charles), LANDON (L. E. L.), LEWIS, LINDLEY, LINNEUS, LODGE, LONDON, LOULUTHER, LYSONS. Several of these, and especially JESTS, JUNIUS, and LONDON, have been so extensively elaborated, that they may fairly be called Monographs.
