About this Item

Vol. III only (chapters 29-51 and appendix, of 3 vol. set): [1], 304 p.; 18 cm. Close of last chapter, 51: `However, from the liberal of virtuous dispositions, and the indulgent of candid minds, in opposition to the conduct of certain blockheads, with eyes hollow as their reeds, and aspects black as their pages, of gloomy souls, and savage hearts, (who, from their evil natures, like wolves and tigers, esteem it glorious to tear the sable and the defenceless fawn) nothing can occur but kindness, indulgence, tenderness to mistakes, and regard to intention. The lion of the heavens has no claws, and the fingers of the sun have no talons. Taking shelter, therefore, under the protecting shade of the liberal-minded, I will not again move my lip, like the bell, in vain tinklings, but impose silence on my tongue. As silence gives dignity and respect to the wise, and is even a mean of consequence and valuation to the ignorant, I yield my heart to the following maxims, and proceed to practice. / Verse. / Be no longer faulty, like thy wandering pen. Wash out with bloody tears thy journal. / Give to the tongue the reproof of silence; for silence is preferable to aught thou canst say.' (p. 268-70) Fair ex-lib. mottled sheep. Lacks spine, covers detached. Bookseller Inventory # 029229
