Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations has long since been accepted as indispensable to every scholar and to every writer; it is a book for every library and every household. Embodying years of labor and research on the part of its author, Familiar Quotations passed through many editions, each enlarged, and attained a sale of three hundred thousand copies before Mr. Bartlett’s death in 1905 at the age of eighty-five. Unrevised for twenty-three years, it has remained the best book of the kind, though a considerable body of apothegms have been knocking for admittance to its classic hall of fame. In this new edition the main body of John Bartlett’s compilation, up to the beginning of the nineteenth century, has been left practically unchanged; the chief purpose of the revision has been to incorporate in the work quotations from those writers whose place in literature has been achieved since the issue of the Ninth Edition in 1891.
