How to use preface in a sentence?

  1. Eyal Poleg:

    We know virtually nothing about This Bible – whose preface was written by Henry VIII Henry VIII – outside of the surviving copies.

  2. Isaac D?Israeli:

    Is a preface exquisitely written? No literary morsel is more delicious. Is the author inveterately dull? It is a kind of preparatory information, which may be very useful. It argues a deficiency of taste to turn over an elaborate preface unread: for it is the attar of the author?s roses, every drop distilled at an immense cost. It is the reason of the reasoning, and the folly of the foolish.
