Excerpt from Essays and Studies Of the Essays collected in the present volume four originally appeared in the Quarterly Review between October 1878 and July 1892, and one, the Essay on Menander, in the Cornhill Magazine for May 1879. It has not been thought necessary to recast their form, but they are not mere reproductions. They have all of them been revised and enlarged, two of them so extensively that they may be said to have been almost rewritten. Whether I am justified in claiming for these Essays an exemption from the ordinary fate of contributions to periodical literature, by collecting them into a volume, I must leave it to others to decide. I can only say, for my own part, that I should never have ventured to submit them a second time to public notice, even in their present carefully revised and greatly enlarged form, had I relied only on any supposed intrinsic literary merit in them.
