The two papers in this volume which bear the titles “A Keats manuscript” and “A Shelley manuscript” are reprinted by permission from a work called “Book and heart,” by Thomas Wentworth Higginson, copyright, 1897, by Harper and Brothers, with whose consent the essay entitled “One of Thackeray's women” also is published. Leave has been obtained to reprint the papers on Brown, Cooper, and Thoreau, from Carpenter's “American prose,” copyrighted by the Macmillan Company, 1898. My thanks are also due to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences for permission to reprint the papers on Scudder, Atkinson, and Cabot; to the proprietors of “Putnam's magazine” for the paper entitled “Emerson's foot-note person” ; to the proprietors of the New York Evening post for the article on George Bancroft from “The nation” ; to the editor of the “Harvard graduates' magazine” for the paper on “Gottingen and Harvard” ; and to the editors of the “Outlook” for the papers on Charles Eliot Norton, Julia Ward Howe, Edward Everett Hale, William J. Rolfe, and “Old Newport days.” Most of the remaining sketches appeared originally in the “Atlantic Monthly.”
