1808 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. William Beloe

George Chalmers to Archibald Constable, 22 January 1808; Archibald Constable and his Literary Correspondents (1873) 1:427.



Beloe and Todd dined with me yesterday. Beloe, who is publishing more Anecdotes of Literature, constantly kept crying out "Oh what a rare book!" But Todd knows better. Apropos of these two knowing men, I said a friend of mine had some thoughts of reprinting the Palace of Pleasures, would it do? Beloe said Yes; Todd said No. I concurred with Todd, as republications seldom take.
