The British Novelist; Or, Virtue and Vice in Miniature, Vol. 1: Consisting of a Valuable Collection of the Best English Novels (Classic Reprint) by Mrs Behn Griffiths Lenox (Paperback / softback, 2015)
Excerpt from The British Novelist; Or, Virtue and Vice in Miniature, Vol. 1: Consisting of a Valuable Collection of the Best English Novels But a still greater disadvantage attending them, is, that the abstract parts are too heavy and unentertaining to youth, so that, being disgusted with one part, they give up the whole, and lose the most rational instruction. To make an impression on the youthful mind, a story need only be well told; for the representation of virtue and vice sinks deep in the heart, and inferences occur without any assistance. To answer so valuable an end this work is w offered to the public, on the most liberal and extensive plan; namely, to present youth in general with all that is valuable in the best writers, who have given us the most animated pictures of human nature. Here the youthful mind will acquire equally as much kwledge as if they perused the originals, and even much more entertainment.
