This print is well worthy the attention of Collectors, either for the purpose of illustrating English Literature, or framing for the study. As the proceeds of this undertaking will be spent in the Postage of my Old Book List each month for the ensuing year, it is hoped that Collectors will avail themselves of the advantage offered.

nearer to the truth, than ever it has yet been. I therefore, sit down with pleasure to this task, because I am persuaded it must give pleasure to others; and have, besides, this encouragement, that there are more things already publisht which may be of assistance to me in the following account, than perhaps there ever was of any one of our English writers, within so short a time after their decease. Beside what may be collected from several parts of his own works, Dr. Swift has himself given a sketch for his life to the thirty-third year of it, publisht by his relation, who is now in possession of his grandfather's estate in Herefordshire. The same gentleman has given us many particulars relating to that, and all the remaining part of his life. The Earl of Orrery has entered (I wish I could not add) too minutely and too unkindly into his character, in his Letters and the Observator on them has added several particulars, which his most familiar acquaintance with Dr. Swift (if the author be rightly guess'd at) must have given him more opportunities than almost any one, to observe, at least, during a considerable part of the doctor's life. Mrs. Pilkington, whose admiration of him, and the pleasure (perhaps the pride) she took in being admitted to his conversation, made her observe every little thing he did, and every word he said, has given us a picture of him in his domestic behaviour; which, as I have been assured by several persons who were very well acquainted with the doctor, is exactly like him. Mr. Hawksworth has written his life, in as exact and handsome a manner, as we had been before taught to expect from his pen; and there is another (said by the author of it, to be chiefly collected from my Lord Orrery), in the Lives of the English Poets, which I know not by what means, or rather by what blunder, they have chosen to attribute chiefly to a very unpromising name in the title-page. To what may be most to my purpose in all of these, I several of Swift's intimate friends and acquaintshall add some things which I have learnt from ance and with all these helps taken together, am in some hopes of giving a fuller and more expressive idea of one who was so serviceable a politician in the cause of his native country, so very excellent and humorous a writer, and so singular a

SPENCEANA.

[Among the Spence MSS. sold at the sale of Mr.
Singer's Books, &c. (all of which, with one exception,
are now in our possession), was one entitled "Collections
relating to the Lives of some of the Greek, Latin, Provincial,
Italian, French, and English POETS." Some of the Lives
of our English Poets are well deserving of publication,
and will appear in these columns. The MS. does not
contain any Life of Pope or Swift. But against each of
their names appears a memorandum, "See separate
Papers." No such separate Life of Pope has yet been
found. But among the Spence MSS. in the possession
of the Duke of Newcastle-the whole of which His Grace

has most kindly placed in our hands-is the following
Life of the Dean, which there can be no doubt is the
separate Paper" referred to.

When the readers of "N. & Q." remember who were
the "intimate friends and acquaintance" of Swift, from
whom Spence "learnt some things," they will at once see
the value of such a work; and they will also, we are sure,
agree, that the thanks of all students of English litera-
ture are due to the Duke of Newcastle for the liberality
with which he has enabled us to commence our proposed
New Series of ANECDOTES OF BOOKS AND MEN with so
interesting a Sketch.]

SOME ACCOUNT OF THE LIFE, WRITINGS, AND
CHARACTER OF DR. SWIFT.

As the works of Dr. Swift have given so much entertainment to almost every one that has been conversant in them, it may not be disagreable to

man.

Dr. Swift was descended from a younger branch of the antient family of the Swifts in Yorkshire. His grandfather, Thomas Swift, was
