William Beloe, in Anecdotes of Literature and Scarce Books 1 (1807) xii.



With great respect and sincere attachment I also introduce, among those to whom I am essentially indebted, the venerable Mr. Isaac Reed. He is far above my praise, but I can never forget the free use of many curious articles in his collection, the clearness, the precision, and the kindness of his various communications on many subjects of Early English Literature, concerning which, I was either ignorant or imperfectly acquainted.
