procure at least twentyone volumes in order to obtain a perusal of the four writers of the first class. Besides, that many of the plays contained in those collections seldom engage the attention of the reader, there are a number in which it would
be desirable, that many scenes were omitted. In a word, it is very seldom that those who read French, with a view to study the literature of that language, attempt to read more than ten or twelve plays. Those are now offered to the public with the addition of one or two plays of other eminent authors, and notes explanatory of idioms, local allusions, &c. It is intended, that the collection shall contain Le Cid, Les Horaces, and Cinna, of Corneille ; Andromaque, Iphigénie, and Athalie, of Racine ; Zaire, Mérope, and Mahomet of Voltaire; Le Misanthrope and Tartuffe, of Moliere ; Le Légataire Universel of Regnard; La Métromanie of Piron; and possibly L'Avare of Molière. This last will be added if the size of the volume should permit it.'
The work is intended to contain six or seven hundred pages, octavo, and to be published by subscription. The price to subscribers is fixed at threc dollars.
