HIS series of little monographs has been designed to furnish the public with interesting and accurate accounts of the men and women notable in Modern Literature. Each monthly volume of "Great Writers" will be the work of an experienced biographer. It will be a chronicle of the chief events in a famous author's life; it will give a critical history of that author's works; it will also contain a full bibliography of these works; and it will be prefaced by an analytical Table of Contents, that will summarize the biography on a new plan.
The Publisher ventures to express his opinion that original and valuable works such as these have never before been produced in any part of the world at a price so low as a shilling a volume.
