Definition
rough calculation or judgment
  • I had formed no very inaccurate estimate of the probable effect of those Poems: I flattered myself that they who should be pleased with them would read them with more than common pleasure: and, on the other band, I was well aware, that by those who should dislike them they would be read with more than common dislike.

There are no more uses of "estimate" in Preface to Lyrical Ballads.
