Edinburgh: T. and A. Constable, Printers to Her Majesty
I have to acknowledge with many thanks the permission of the proprietors of the National Review (in which most of the following articles appeared), of the Fortnightly Review, and of the Cornhill Magazine, to republish these studies.
The following chapters are reprinted from articles which, with three exceptions, appeared in the National Review. The chapter upon 'Huxley' appeared in the Nineteenth Century; that upon 'Milton' in the Quarterly Review; and the chapter 'In Praise of Walking' in the Monthly Review. I have to thank the proprietors of these periodicals for permission to republish them.
