Notice of The Piazza Tales in the NY Evening Express

New York Evening Express - June 20, 1856
The "Piazza Tales," by Herman Melville, presents some half dozen attractive short stories originally published in Putnam's Magazine. Under the caption of "The Piazza" a pleasing introductory idyl is given, after which, the stories "Bartleby" "Benito Cereno" "The Lightning-rod Man" the "Encantadas," and the "Bell Flower" are supposed to be recited. It forms a very pretty parlor volume.  --New York Evening Express, June 20, 1856
