الصفحة 16 - O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will lay thy stones with fair colours, and lay thy foundations with sapphires.

Then the public will know what they are about, and so will tradesmen. I, the first producer, answer, to the best of my power, for the quality of the book — paper, binding, eloquence, and all : the retail dealer charges what he ought to charge, openly ; and if the public do not choose...
الصفحة 12 - They wept, and shared in human miseries. In vain Automedon now shakes the rein, Now plies the lash, and soothes and threats in vain; Nor to the fight nor Hellespont they go, Restive they stood, and obstinate in woe: Still as a tombstone, never to be...
