ECLECTIC REVIEW,

FOR JANUARY, 1816.

Art. I. The Miscellaneous Works of Edward Gibbon, Esq. with Me. moirs of his Life and Writings ; composed by Himself; illustrated from his Letters, with occasional Notes and Narrative. By the Right Hon. John Lord Sheffield. A new Edition, with considerable Additions, 5 vols, Svo. pp. xlviii, 2928. Price 31. 55. London. Murray. 1815. THERE is something, at first sight, extremely embarrassing

I to the critic, in such an appearance as that of the present Publication. It is not given to the world as a new work, but purports to be no more than a new edition of an old one; of one which made its appearance many years ago, in a quarto form. That work, as is generally known, was so favourably received, that the public may well be supposed sufficiently acquainted with its contents, no longer to stand in need either of the critic's judgement, to influence or to deter from the purchase, or of the production of select passages, to serve as specimens of the style, or as substitutes for the work itself, to those readers who, from whatever motive, might choose to be satisfied with splendid portions instead of the whole.

But, though it is no more than a new edition of an old work, it is, however, one, improved, according to the title, with considerable additions, which additions are supposed to amount to about one third of the former publication. Of these additions, then, at least, the reader of a review might expect to meet with some more particular notice. · It would, however, be no easy matter, in many cases, to distinguish, in an extensive series of narrative composition, what has been added, from the information originally given, incorporated as both are through a considerable portion of the work. And even to distinguish accurately the addition of several letters to and from Mr. Gibbon, from those formerly published, would require a more minute comparison of both editions, than is easily instituted, or would be likely to reward the time and pains ne. cessary to be bestowed on it.

But, should even these difficulties be surmounted, and the Vol. V. N.S.
