for their Antiquity, Magnitude, and Beauty, impl. folio, 50 beautiful Etchings, with descriptive text, (pub. at £9. 9s) half bound; green morocco extra, gilt edges, £5.

1826 This is one of those works of art which do not merely charm the eye, but appeal forcibly to the imagination, and delight the mind. Of all the productions of nature, there are none with which so many agreeable and even affecting feelings are associated as with the trees of the forest, and especially with those remarkable specimens which historical or romantic circumstances have caused to be distinguished from their venerable compeers. Forty of such trees in England, and eight in Scot. land, are figured in this publication, from very clever drawings, which are admirably etched, in a style well calculated to preserve their characteristics and perpetuate their remembrance, when old Time shall have mowed them down, like the Hainault Oak, or that of Epping Forest, under which generations of gipsies spread their canvas, and generations of citizens enjoyed their annual festival. The local details and anecdotes attached to many of these subjects are extremely curious and inter. esting.

Firenze, 1827 This is the first complete edition of the works of Vasari. “ Vasari is the father of the history of painting, and has transmitted to us its most precious materials. Educated in the most auspicious era of the art, he has in some measure perpetuated the influence of the golden age. In perusing his Lives, I fancy myself listening to the individuals of whom he has collected the traditions and the precepts. It was thus, think 1, that Rafaello and Andrea imparted these facts to their scholars ; thus spoke Buonarroti ; the friends of Giorgio heard this from Vinci and Porta, and in this manner must have related it to him. I am delighted with the facts, and also with the luminous, simple, and natural manner in which they are expressed, interwoven with the technical terms that originated in Florence, and worthy of every writer whose subject is the fine arts."-Lanzi's History of Painting. 5694 VATICANO (II) descritto ed illustrato da Erasmo PISTOLESI, con disegni a con.

Paris, 1806-39 Rechercher les titres de notre art national, tenter de dresser son histoire avec des preuves irrëcusables et certaines, tel a été le but de M. Willemin. Infatigable travailleur, laborieux chercheur, M. Willemin est parvenu à force de peine et de soin à donner à son ouvrage un mérite incontestable de vérité qui le rend indispensable aujourd'hui ; jamais, peut-être, à aucune époque de notre bistoire, les artistes n'ont recherché avec un plus grand soin l'exactitude des costumes et de l'ameublement. Ils n'avaient, avant la publication des Monuments inédits de Willemin, aucun ouvrage

spécial qui pût leur faciliter leurs recherches ; Montfaucon avait tenté ce travail, mais l'inexactitude quelquefois grotesque de ces planches n'avait pas permis à son livre de faire autorité; c'était avec méfiance que le peintre ou le sculpteur le consultaient, l'archéologue, pourvu qu'il eût quelque peu étudié, avait reconnu son insuffisance et ses défauts. Une place importante restait donc à prendre, Willemin, naturellement porté vers les études de ce genre, comprit cela, il s'en empara. Pour arriver à ce but, il employa les moyens les plus certains pour réussir ; difficile pour lui-même, cherchant à s'éclairer de tous les travaux partiels de ses devanciers. Il demanda aux cuvres elles-mêmes leurs certificats origine, leurs diplômes d'authenticité, et, chose bien rare et bien louable, il sut conserver assez longtemps les trésors qu'il avait rassemblés, pour ne les publier que lorsqu'il fut parfaitement satisfait de ses découvertes, et lorsqu'il fut suffisamment éclairé pour ne rien sacrifier au hasard, et pour ne donner que des monuments dont il fut parfaitement sûr. C'est à cette condition seule que I'ont fait un bon livre, un livre utile et impossible à refaire. Quiconque a consulté les Monuments inédits de Willemin, a reconnu comme nous l'exactitude des objets reproduits. Miniatures, meubles, ornements, costumes, orfèvrerie ou émaux, rien n'a été ni négligé ni sacrifié. Confiée à des artistes spéciaux, l'exécution de ces planches a été surveillée par Willemin lui même, et aucune épreuve n'a été publiée sans avoir passé sous les yeux du maître qui en corrigeait lui-même les défauts. Un texte explicatif que la mort avait empêché Willemin de rédiger, fut confié à l'éruditon variée d'un ami du defunt, M. André Pottier, de Rouen ; le choix était heureux, et fut pleinement justifié : il est difficile, en effet, de faire moins parade d'érudition que M. André Pottier, il est difficile aussi de mieux rapporter à Willemin le mérite de l'ouvrage entrepris, mais il est difficile aussi de faire preuve d'un savoir plus sûr et plus profond. 5718 WOOD'S (R.) Antiquities of PALMYRA and BALBEC ; 2 vols. in 1, impl. folio, 103 fine engravings, hf. red morocco, uncut, £2.

1837 “When I endeavour to do justice to the editions of Palmyra and Balbec, I would not confine my encomiums to the sculptures. The modest descriptious prefixed are standards of writing; the exaet measure of what should and what should not be said, and of what was necessary to be known, was never comprehended in more clear diction, or more elegant style. The pomp of the buildings has not a nobler air than the simplicity of the narration.”-Lord Orford. 5719 WYATT’S (M Digby) Metal Work and its Artistic Design-Specimens of Orna

mental Art Workmanship in Gold, Silver, Iron, Brass, and Bronze, from the Twelfth to the Nineteenth Centuries, impl. folio, 50 large plates of the choicest examples, exquisitely printed in gold and colours, with a History of the Art in Italy, England, France, Germany and Spain, together with its Theory and Practice, (pub. at £6. 6s) elegantly bound in cloth, 368

1852 This most beautiful and interesting work exhibits in fifty plates, mostly illuminated in gold and colours, some hundred specimens of the most admirable relics of the Middle Ages, and of the period of the Renaissance. Among them are Italian Chalices and Ciboria, rich Processional Cross, Reliquaries, Pastoral Staff, Pendant and Bracket Lamps, rich Gold Drinking Cups, specimens of Jewellery, Silver Dagger and Coins by Benvenuto Cellini, Wrought Iron Doors, Screens, elaborate and elegant Locks, Keys, Hinges, &c. 5720 WYATT'S (M. Digby) INDUSTRIAL ARTs of the 19th Century, a series of Illus

trations of the choicest specimens produced by every Nation at the Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry, in 1851, 2 vols. impl. folio, illustrated with 168 large lithographic plates of the choicest Statues, Bronzes, Bijouterie, richlydecorated Furniture, Stained Glass, Manufactures in Metal, Silk Fabrics, Embroidery, Pottery, Porcelain, &c. &c. most exquisitely printed in colours, (pub. at £17. 178) half morocco, gilt edges, embossed sides, £8. 158
