The Cambridge History of English and American Literature in 18 Volumes (1907–21).
Volume X. The Age of Johnson.

Prefatory Note

<PARA=”1″>THE LATE Mr. D. C. Tovey’s chapter on Gray, as well as the accompanying bibliography, reached us a very short time before his lamented death; and the proofs were not seen by him. Mr. Tovey’s contribution to this History represents his last labour upon a subject which he had gradually made his own, and with which his name will always be associated in the minds of all lovers of English literature, and especially of members of his own and Gray’s university.<PARA=”2″>We have to thank Mr. A. T. Bartholomew, of Peterhouse and the University Library, for contributing to this volume the bibliographies to which his initials are appended, and for other assistance chiefly of a bibliographical nature.
