“ Assisted by a faithful friend, Bosio spent 35 years in exploring the Catacombs of Romemaking accurate plans, copying sculptures and paintings with unwearied assiduity-and his labours resulted in the massive folios of the Roma Subterranea,' now of inestimable value, since the Catacombs being for the most part closed up and inaccessible—the tombs removed and the frescoes destroyed--they form the sole record of much that then existed in its freshness, now obliterated."

« Blake is a real name, I assure you; and a most extraordinary man he is, if he be still living. He is the Blake whose wild designs accompany a splendid edition of Blair's Grave. He paints in water colours marvellous strange pictures-visions of his brain, which he asserts that he has seen. They have great merit. I have heard of his poems, but never seen them. There is one to a tiger, which I have heard recited, beginning

The cuneiform system of letters was a species of picture writing, invented, not by the Semitic inhabitants of Babylon, but by those who preceded them. The writing was, however, reduced by the Semitic race to letters, and adapted to the articulation of their language. Their mode of writing consisted of several elements. There was the ideographic, or picture-writing, and the phonetic, which was equivalent to the letters of their language. The cuneiform inscriptions were divided into Persian, Scythic, and Assyrian. 5408 BOUTARD, Dictionnaire des Arts du Dessin, 8vo. 690 pp. sd. 3s 6d Paris, 1826 5409 - the same, 8vo.

1819 Dodwell's Tour in Greece is universally admitted to be a work of the most sterling merit, and the best executed of all the accounts yet published of this interesting country. Stevenson (in his Catalogue of Voyages and Travels,) says that "it displays great research, aided and directed by much preparatory knowledge, sound judgment, and good taste," and the late Dr. E. D. Clarke, than whom no man was more competent to give judgment on this subject, pronounced it “ by far the best book on Greece," and in a letter to the publisher requested that his name might be made use of, in recommendation of the work, in any way the most likely to promote its sale. 5447 DOMINICI (Bernardo de) Vite de' Pittori, Scultori ed Architetti NAPOLETANI,

" It is extremely scarce, and but for the kindness of friends both in Italy and England, I should have been unable to refer to it.
