HEART OF OAK BOOKS
CHARLES ELIOT NORTON
In the preparation of the Heart of Oak Books, I have been greatly assisted by Miss Kate Stephens and Mr. George H. Browne. Without their help the books would not have been made. An accurate text of the pieces of which the volumes are made up has been secured by the careful and scholarly revision of Mr. Browne. Most of the notes are from the hand of Miss Stephens.

The selections from Longfellow, Lowell, Hawthorne, Whittier, and Emerson in these books are used by permission of the publishers of the works of these authors, Houghton, Mifflin, & Co., and by special arrangement with them.
