Excerpt from Tales From Shakespear, Vol. 1: Designed for the Use of Young Persons

In the year 1806 Charles and Mary Lamb were residing in Mitre Court Buildings in the Temple. For more than ten years Charles had devoted himself to the care of this sister, content to forego for her sake all thoughts of other ties, and living beneath the shadow, which never lifted, of a great family sorrow. Happily for both, they were united by strong common tastes and sympathies as well as by the tenderest affection, and prominent among such tastes, as all readers of the Essays of Elia well know, was the love of Shakspeare and the other great Elizabethans. In a letter of May 10 in this year to his friend Manning, who had shortly before sailed for China, Charles Lamb writes of the sister who was never far from his thoughts, - "Mary, whom you seem to remember yet, is not quite easy that she had not a formal parting from you. I wish it had so happened. But you must bring her a token, a shawl or something, and remember a sprightly little mandarin for our mantelpiece, as a companion to the child I am going to purchase at the museum.

The illus trations were by Mulready, then a young man of one-and-twenty, who did much work of the same kind for Godwin in the first years of his book selling career. Neither on the Title-page nor in the Preface did Mary Lamb s name appear, though in the latter it is not concealed that more than one hand had been engaged on the task. Perhaps it was the sister s own Wish that her name should be suppressed. But we have her brother s testimony to the important share which she bore in the work, and her name therefore appears in the title of the present edition.
