About Leigh Hunt, the Author:
A number of essays in The Examiner that were written by Hunt and William Hazlitt between 1814 and 1817 under the series title 'The Round Table' were collected in book form in The Round Table, published in two volumes in 1817. ...His Poetical Works (2 vols.), revised by himself and edited by Lee, were printed at Boston in 1857, and an edition (London and New York) by his son, Thornton Hunt, appeared in 1860.
