A Literary and Biographical History, Vol. 2 free pdf Excerpt from A Literary and Biographical History, Vol. 2: Or Bibliographical Dictionary of the English Catholics- From the Breach With Rome, in 1534, to the Present Time In presenting this second volume to the public the Editor begs to acknowledge very warmly the favourable reception extended to its predecessor, and to return his thanks for the many useful criticisms which have been passed upon it. Certain defects in the system, pointed out in these criticisms, had already been amended in the present volume. Amongst them the reader will not fail to observe a difference in the use of the antique type, and in the mode of dealing with the lives. In order to facilitate reference, a series of catch-letters has been introduced at the head of each page. In the bibliographical parts the distinction between works by persons under notice and those merely relating to them is more clearly marked- and the biographies have been treated more carefully and at greater length. Some of them, with their several bibliographical addenda, will be found to extend to as much as nineteen pages, as in the case of Bishop Gardiner and of the poet Dryden. In many instances opportunity has been taken to introduce the histories of missions, schools, colleges, and miscellaneous Catholic institutions, and frequently subsidiary memoirs arc given which do not strictly come within the general limits laid down for the work. It may be mentioned that in the first volume, comprising the letters A to C, there are nearly six hundred biographical and two thousand bibliographical notices. In the present volume there are about three hundred and thirty of the former and seventeen hundred of the latter.
