A series of Essays has been commenced on the important but too much neglected science of Physiology. These are writen in a popular style, and are as free from technicalities as is compatible with scientific explanations. They will be found to contain much valuable information on a subject with which every one should be acquainted.

At the commencement of the present volume the elegant and expensive embellishments which now accompany the ATHENEUM were first introduced. The plan was adopted with the expectation of thereby increasing the circulation of the work, which alone could justify the proprietor in incurring the expense of such a measure. We are happy to say that so far we have not been disappointed, and that it is intended the embellishments of the next volume shall not be inferior to those of the present. These plates, combined with the large amount of matter contained in the ATHENEUM, and the quality of the paper on which it is printed, render the work cheaper than almost any other publication in this country.

With regard to the ensuing volume we will only say-that if unremitting assiduity in selecting and arranging the choicest flowers from the well-cultivated garden of English literature,-longer experience, and careful attention to the mechanical execution of the work,-will render it superior to the present volume, we can venture to promise that it will be so.

Boston, March 15, 1829.
