    Excerpt from The Symbolical Language of Ancient Art and Mythology, Vol. 2: An Inquiry The original edition of this work was privately printed by the author at London, in the year 1818. It had not been designed by him for a treatise by itself, as appears from the following notice on the title-page, namely: "Intended to be prefixed to the Second Volume of the 'Select Specimens of Ancient Sculpture,' published by the Society of Dilettanti; but the necessarily slow progress of that work, in the exhausted state of the funds to be applied to it, affording the author little probability of seeing its completion, he has been induced to print a few copies of this proposed Part of it, that any information which he may have been able to collect upon a subject so interesting to all lovers of Elegant Art, may not be lost to his successors in such pursuits, but receive any additions and corrections which may render it more worthy to appear in the splendid form, and with the beautiful Illustrations of the preceding volume." Afterward, with Mr. Knight's consent, the "Inquiry" was reprinted, in continuous portions, in the Classical Journal. It was published a third time, in 1836, by a London House, having been edited for the purpose, by E. H. Barker, Esq., a gentleman of superior literary endowments. The demand for it among scholars and persons of culture, has exhausted the edition which was necessarily limited; and copies are now difficult to procure. Richard Payne Knight was one of the most thorough scholars of the earlier period of the present century. His works display profound judgment, discrimination, taste, acuteness and erudition, united with extraordinary candor and impartiality; and they constitute an invaluable collection of ancient and curious learning, from which the students of such literature can draw abundant supplies.
