THE

LIBRARY OF ANECDOTE,

AND

TABLE-TALK.

“I love Anecdotes. I fancy mankind may come, in time, to write all aphoristically, except in narrative; grow weary of preparation, and connection, and illustration, and all those arts by which a big book is made. If a man is to wait till he weaves anecdotes into a system, we may be long in

getting them, and get but few, in comparison of what we might get." DR. Johnson. (Boswell's Tour.)
