Notes: 'Advertisement' incorporating the following statement: 'The Author begs leave to submit, that a Book (professing to be a Novel) lately published under the title of "Mountville Castle, by the Author of A Winter's Tale," was written in very early life, previously to The Winter's Tale. Had the bookseller (in whose hands it lay nine years) apprised the writer of his intention, so childish a composition should have been suppressed.' This is followed by 'Hints toward a Just Taste in Novel Reading' (pp. [i]–xxxi). Mountville Casle is EN2 1808: 30; for A Winter's Tale, see EN1 1799: 25.
