1741 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Samuel Richardson

Anonymous, "Advice to Booksellers (after reading Pamela)" Gentleman's Magazine 11 (April 1741) 214.



Since printers with such pleasing nature write,
And since so awkwardly your scribes indite,
Be wise in time, and take a friendly hint;
Let printers write, and let your writers print.
