TO THE PUBLIC.

ALTHOUGH fire hundred Copies of the last Number of this Magazine were printed in addition to the usual quantity, the whole impression has been found unequal to the demand ; and the Proprietors regret that they did not further anticipate the success that has attended the elegant Engraving of " PsychE" and their improvements in general. Their Subscribers, however, are respectfully informed that, the Proof Impressions of the Psyche, with a Mythological account of her history, are nearly ready for publication. On account of circumstances, which it would be tedious and unnecessary to detail, these Proofs are far more elegantly executed and faithful to the original than the Engravings inserted in the last month's Magazine, although they were superior to any thing of the kind that ever appeared in this or any other Magazine.

The PROOFs on lodia paper, with descriptive letter press on imperial quarto paper and hot-pressed, will be published at the latter end of the present month; dedicated to His Grace the Duke of Bedford. Price 78. 6d.
