Reseña del editor
Fragments are generally unsatisfactory. They are unjust to the hand that can write no more, for they are incomplete pictures of the authors views. They cannot be fully appreciated by the general reader, for he thinks he has a right to expect that none but finished pictures should be placed before the public for inspection. Yet there are many unfinished sketches, both in art and literature, which it would be a public loss to wholly shut up from view. In these pages there seems to me much that is not only interesting and instructive, but suggestive of novel thoughts, and likely to stimulate progressive study in the same direction ;and they certainly contain a good deal of neglected truth. To the collection of a great mass of historical materials my friend Wm. D. Babington gave years of earnest, learned, and most honest labour. His unexpected death in 1893 prevented him from reducing these to order and system. That is a want that cannot now be adequately supplied by any other hand.
