Description

This volume has three books in one. It includes Disraeli's "Curiosities of Literature,"  Disraeli's "The Literary Character Illustrated, and Griswold's "Curiosities of American Literature."

Griswold writes about Disraeli's two works in this volume that they "constitute together the most valuable as well as the most amusing book of literary history and biography which has ever been written."

Griswold own contribution to this work is best explained in his own words. He writes "The Publishers of this edition of D'ISRAELI, anxious to enlarge the work by adding to it some of the "Curiosities of American Literature," applied to the Editor of the following pages for such an amount of matter, of the description herewith given, as might be printed within certain specified limits; and he has gleaned from many rare and curious old books relating to our country or written by our countrymen, and from other sources inaccessible to the general reader, what he trusts will be received as a suitable appendix for an American impression of D'ISRAELI'S interesting miscellany."
