The Editor deems it right to state that the contents of the following pages were, amongst other Papers, placed at his disposal by an intimate friend of the late S.T. Coleridge; and from internal evidence he was induced to attribute to that gentleman the entire authorship. After, however, the present edition had passed through the press, and was on the eve of publication, circumstances arose which led to the belief that the work might with more propriety be considered as the joint production of Mr. Coleridge and the late Mr. James Gillman, of Highgate'.
