Troilues and Cressida, Act I, Sc. 3.
The First SERIES of NOTES AND QUERIES, in Twelve Volumes, was brought to a close at the end of 1855, by the issue of a GENERAL Index. Of the utility of this Index, The Times spoke as follows on June 28, 1856:
“The utility of such a volume, not only to men of letters, but to well-informed readers generally, is too obvious to require proof, more especially when it is remembered that many of these references (between 30,000 and 40,000) are to articles which themselves point out the best sources of information upon their respective subjects."
A SECOND SERIES of Twelve Volumes was completed at the end of 1861, by the publication of a similar GENERAL INDEX, of which The Times of November 8, 1862, remarks :
" It contains about 30,000 references to articles written by some of our best scholars upon every conceivable subject, 'from predestination to blen Filk,' for in the pages of this Everybody's Common-place Book Do subject comes amiss.
It is a book which will be found most useful to those who possess NOTES AND QUERIES, and indispensable to the searchers after the curiosities of literature.'
Of these Two INDEXES a few Copies may still be had, price 5s. and 5s.6d, respectively.
