Dealer Notes
'We have been solicited so repeatedly for separate copies of the Memoirs and Portraits of the celebrated Persons which have been Published in the NATURALIST'S LIBRARY, and the internal interest contained in these Biographical Sketches themselves is such, as to induce us to bring out in a separate form and distinct from that Work, the present Volume ...' - Publisher's Advertisement.
