Great excellence, in human art as in human character, has from the beginning of things been even more uniform than mediocrity, by virtue of the closeness of its approach to Nature.

The Golden Treasury
 
Of the Best Songs and Lyrical Poems in the English Language
 
Selected and Arranged with Notes by Francis Turner Palgrave
 
Thomas Palgrave describes his Golden Treasury: “This little Collection differs, it is believed, from others in the attempt made to include in it all the best original lyrical pieces and songs in our language, by writers not living, and none besides the best. The Editor will regard as his fittest readers those who love poetry so well, that he can offer them nothing not already known and valued.”
