1772 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. Thomas Carte

Anonymous, in "Catalogue of the most celebrated Writers" Letters concerning the present State of England (1772) 349.



CARTE. Best known by his history of England, which is a laborious performance, and gains the writer more reputation at present, than it did at the time it first came out. The more histories we have, the more valuable the old ones that exceed the merit of the new.
