    Excerpt from The Works of the Ettrick Shepherd: Poems Ballads In the present volume, we have endeavoured not only to give a complete collection of the Poetical Works of the Ettrick Shepherd, but also to present them in such a classified order, that each can be easily found under its own separate head. It is hoped that this simple plan will be an additional recommendation to the volume. The Poems themselves are so various in length, subject, and character, that some such arrangement was judged advisable, instead of throwing them together indiscriminately, or in the chronological order of their composition. They are "orient pearls," which, instead of being strung at random in publication, are worthy of a careful setting; and whether this has been done successfully, the reader is left to judge. It is deeply to be regretted that the late Professor Wilson, who had resolved to write the Life of James Hogg, was prevented by his numerous literary avocations and declining health from carrying his purpose into effect. For who could so well have accomplished such a labour of love in embalming the memory of the Ettrick Shepherd as Christopher North? To supply so irreparable a loss, the Memoir of Hogg contained in the present volume has been written, partly from communications with his family, partly from oral intimations of the few friends who still survive, and partly from his own reminiscences which he appended to several of his publications, and which are now given in their collected form at the end of this volume, as his Autobiography. And from this source and the Memoir, it is hoped that the reader will be able to learn how the author of the "Queen's Wake" looked, lived, and acted - what struggles he endured, and what difficulties he surmounted - and with what unsuspecting simplicity and warm-hearted honesty his checkered career was lightened and animated from its commencement to its close. And what need to speak of his genius? That is attested by the poems themselves, and the universal suffrage in their behalf. Note To Centenary Edition. In this Centenary Edition the Pictorial Illustrations are more numerous than in any previous edition, being now augmented by a series of engravings illustrative of the writings of the author, from designs by Keeley Halswelle, A. R. S. A., W. Small, and J. Lawson; and also by an engraving of the monumental statue of the Ettrick Shepherd erected at St. Mary's Loch. An Appendix to the Author's Life is also added, containing an account of the inauguration of the statue, the celebration of the centenary of his birth, a notice of his family, and other matters of interest.
