“ We have placed a new edition of Archbishop Leighton's Works at the head of this article; and, as Mr. Coleridge has neglected to furnish the biographical notice he had promised, we shall endeavour to supply its place by a few particulars of his life and writings, principally extracted from a spirited and eloquent Memoir prefixed to the new edition, by the Rev. Norman Pearson. It is a reproach to the present age, that his valuable writings, breathing as they do the sublimest and purest spirit of piety, rich in beautiful images and classical learning, throughout abounding in practical reflections, and all expressed with the sweetest and simplest eloquence, should have been neglected among us." - British Critic.

BROCKEDON'S VIEWS IN ITALY.

Now Publishing in Monthly Parts, Imperial Quarto,

ITALY,
HISTORICAL, CLASSICAL, AND PICTURESQUE,
Described and illustrated in a Series of Views, engraved in the highest style
of Art, from Drawings made and selected expressly for this Work,

BY WILLIAM BROCKEDON, Esq. F. R. S.
Member of the Academies of Fine Arts in Florence and Rome; Author of

• The Passes of the Alps," - The Road-Book to Italy,” &c. &c.
The Work is published in Monthly Parts, each containing Three highly
finished Line Engravings, with descriptive Letterpress, printed on Imperial
Quarto paper

size, 15 inches by 11 - and will extend to Twenty-four Parts.

The Price of each Number will be- Prints, 5s. ; India Paper Proofs, 8s.; India Proofs, before Letters, 128. Of this latter, the Impression will be strictly limited to Twenty-five Copies.

Critical Notices. This is a splendid work. The plates, executed by our best artists, are finished with great delicacy and care; and they are well illustrated by Mr. Brockedon's skill in description, which has been exemplified in his previous works.”— Asiatic Journal.

“ We can reiterate what we said in our first notice of this work, that this is the most voluptuously adorned and printed guide-book that ever became candidate for the patronage of the boudoir or the tourist."- Court Jo nal.

“ The comparatively low price at which these fine engravings are published must offer an additional reason for the success of the undertaking."- Morning Herald.

“ The present work is another example so high above the foremost of its class (with few, if any, exceptions), that we gladly welcome it as a noble and genuine specimen of what can be done in England by the draughtsman and the engraver. The subjects are admirably chosen and admirably made out. "The distribution of light and shadow is often as perfect as in the finest paintings.”— Literary Gazette.

“ This beautiful work is intended to present the most picturesque features of the scenery and architecture of Italy in a graphic shape, and to describe the historical facts and poetical associations that invest its lovely landscapes and magnificent structures with charms that add to its visible beauties."- Spectator.

“ Historians have written of her, poets have sung of her, artists have sketched and painted her, travellers explored her and described her in glowing terms; but never have the historian, poet, artist, and traveller co-operated to produce so complete and worthy an account and portraiture of her.”- Morning Chronicle.

This second number of a work we have already hailed as full of value, and illustrated with great beauty."-Atlas.

. We cannot speak too highly of the first part of this magnificent work, which is to be published in monthly numbers. The views with which we are presented, in this part, are splendid illustrations of this land of unrivalled scenic beauty and imperishable renown; and are glorious specimens of the perfection to which the art of line engraving has been brought in this country.”—Midland Counties Advertiser,

“ Mr. Brockedon's Italy appeals to us in the olden form of line engraving; nor ought it to appeal in vain : the size of the plates being sufficient to preclude pettiness of execution, and the skill of the artists employed having been put forth with the best possible result. welcome scenes in Spain because of their unfamiliarity, we are delighted to look once again at the glories of Italy. The first part contains a full view of St. Peter's, Rome, by Mr. Eastlake; another of Ancona,' by Mr. Brockedon; and the third of Leghorn,' after a sketch by Admiral Sartorius. The second part discloses the Temples of Pæstum,' with an admirable effect of light and shade, after a sketch by Sir George Back; Vintimiglia,' by Barnard ; and Loretto,' with a glory of sunshine steeping the dome of the Casi Santa, by Brockedon. As a refresher of the memories of all who have passed the Alps, and are impatient of seeing the beauties of Italy desecrated by the mechanical or trivial nature of their presentment,

this publication deserves all honour."-Atheneum.
