THE Essays and Sketches contained in this volume, chiefly written by the late Mr CREECH, were originally published in the periodical works of the day. A considerable part of them was first collected and published in a volume, in the year 1791, under the title of " EDINBURGH FUGITIVE PIECES," and some part was afterwards inserted in the Statistical Account of Scotland. The volume in which they at first appeared as a collection having been long out of print, it is now republished, with several pieces which were not in the former edition; and it is hoped will not be unac
ceptable to the public. There is prefixed, a short Account of Mr CREECH'S Life, together with his Portrait, engraved from an excellent picture, painted by Mr Raeburn in the year 1806.
