That work, however, in its entirety, was far too costly for the larger and ever-widening circle of M. Dore's admirers, and to meet the felt and often-expressed want of this class, and to provide a volume of choice and valuable designs upon sacred subjects for art-loving Biblical students generally, this work was projected and has been carried forward.< Less

The plan I have adopted is to give the tales in a simple meter and in the most unpretending manner, going, in short, little if anything beyond mere recital in easy verse. From performing even this plain task as I could have wished I have been prevented by ill health, and I fear that what I have written little deserves the honor of association with works of genius like Mr. GUSTAVE DORE'S pictures. But I have the single satisfaction of knowing that I have done the best I could. TOM HOOD< Less
