Excerpt from A Dictionary of Quotations From the English Poets
Waller, Dryden, Addison, Prior, Gay, Pope, Swift, Thomson, and a great many others who ﬂourished within his time; and these were precisely the poets we most cared to cultivate. In later years, but too late for my youthful purposes, Messrs. Whittaker brought out a Dictionary of Quotations from the British Poets, in 3 vols. Post 8vc., one for Shakespeare in 1823, another for Blank Verse in 1824, and the third for Rhyme in 1825, all anonymous, but known to be by Wm. Kingdom. This work, which subsequently became my property, is a very careful and excellent compilation, and has been largely used by subsequent compilers, English and American, especially the latter, without in any instance, as far as I can discover, having been acknowledged or even mentioned by them.
