Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
You shall see a beautiful quarto page, where a neat rivulet of text shall meander through a meadow of margin.
        Sheridan.—School for Scandal, Act I. Scene 1.
Every page having an ample marge,
And every marge enclosing in the midst
A square of text, that looks like a little blot.
        Tennyson.—Idylls of the King, Vivien.
The meandering of a current hastening through pleasant fields.
        Smart’s Horace.—Art of Poetry.
        If I had his name,
I’d print it in text letters.
        Middleton.—The Roaring Girl, Act I. Scene 1.
