From the book's Preface:
No compiler of a biography may perhaps wish to be favourite with
more plentiful and trustworthy fabrics. They include a really
extensive correspondence from the 12 months 1808 to that of
Dr. Peck's loss of life, overlaying complete fifty years of his eventful lifestyles.
Then as well as those well-arranged letters, which a thou-
sand fingers have contributed, with the substance of his extra
important replies, there are his journals for nearly this complete
period, filling fifty-three volumes, a few few of them small and
portable for his comfort in touring, yet such a lot of them
large, both folios or quartos of a few humdreds of pages each one,
full of all proof and incidents which his inquisitive and virtually
ubiquitous spirit of study introduced below his remark.
The superabundance of those fabrics has certainly proved
the vital embarrassment during this compilation. they're
ample, and by means of Dr. Peck himself have been designed for a extra complete
and prolonged memoir of his existence and occasions than it appeared advert-
visable to the publishers now to ship forth.
