    Excerpt from The Critical Review, or Annals of Literature, 1790, Vol. 69 The circumfiances, more immediately relative to this vo lume, are mentioned at fome length in the preface. The lives of Chatterton and Cook are, perhaps, of a difproportionate ex tent; but the editor apologifes for this fault with unequal ef fea. We allow that works of this kind are deliined for a fu ture age, when the fources from whence the information is drawn are become fence, or are forgotten; and an abridg ment of the Voyages of captain Cook was a proper appendage to his Life. Perhaps, and the editor fee'ms to allow it, the' abridgment is too minute for a biographical diétionary only but, while there is fo much original information to be convey ed, we forget the fault in the entertainment. The extent of Chatterton's Life is not fo well fupported the difpute concern ing Rowley was between bigotry, refinement, and error on one lids; and a genuine knowledge of antiquity, judgment, and difcernmenton the other. It might have been difcu¿'ed in two pages. Chatterton was no doubt an extraordinary young man but his dextrous imitations rendered him more confpieuous than the extent of his knowledge, which, though much celebrated, will not be found greatly fuperior to what a lad of quick com prehenfion might have attained with the fame advantages. We mud continuero think that the Life of Chatterton, as it is written isno ornament to the work. Dr. Kippis jufily obferves, that from the accumulation of new books, and the prejudices of falhion.
