Excerpt from Poetry for Children

Among the many and great services rendered to the world by William Godwin during his earthly pilgrimage, we may reckon not as the least that lucky inspiration which prompted him, in the early years of this century, to establish a Juvenile Library, first in the name of Thomas Hodgkins in Hanway Street, and afterwards in that of his second wife in Skinner Street, and to issue from it a series of children's books of singular worth and excel lence. For the execution of this scheme led him in an early stage of it to invoke the assistance of Charles Lamb and his sister in catering for his youthful clients; and during the years 1806 - 1811 five successive delightful works were produced by them at his instigation and issued under his auspices, which, it is not too much to say, would probably never have seen the light but for this fortunate and most opportune book-selling project of William Godwin.
