Grocott & Ward, comps. Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed. 189-?.


LELY on animated canvas stole
The sleepy eye, that spoke the melting soul.
Pope.—To Augustus, Epi. I. Line 149.

Heaven speed the canvas, gallantly unfurl’d,
To furnish and accommodate a world,
To give the pole the produce of the sun,
And knit the unsocial climates into one!
Cowper.—Charity, Line 123.
