SOME NOW FOR THE FIRST TIME COLLECTED, AND CAREFULLY ARRANGED,
WITH AN INDEX.
47, LUDGATE HILL.
No attempt has hitherto been made to present in a convenient form the opinions of his Royal Highness the Prince Consort on the many important and interesting subjects with which his benevolent and active mind was unceasingly occupied. To the Society of Arts belongs the honour of having first published a collection of his public addresses, comprising, as stated in the preface, with one or two exceptions, those which bore on questions of social progress. This publication, however, necessarily contained much which was only of special application, or of a merely formal or temporary character, and having been published early in 1857, it comprises, of course, no speech delivered since that date.
