William Preston

Samuel Egerton Brydges, "Literary Intellegence" Censura Literaria 9 (1809) 109.



Proposals are issued for printing, at a subscription of half a guinea, by John Jones, at Dublin, the Posthumous Poems of the late William Preston, Esq. (one of the Judges of Appeals) including a Sketch of his Life. The Editor has collected, from his MSS. and other sources, the remains of a dear and valued friend, that not a fragment of such a man should be lost; and in duty to his family she has preferred publishing them by subscription, that the genius and celebrity of the father should derive some solid and permanent advantage to his numerous children.
