Engravings on Wood. 3 vols, square crown 8vo. 21. 88. cloth. “ The object of these volumes is to combine a general picture of the progress of Italian literature and art under the patronage of the sinaller Italian principalities, with a history of the houses of Montefeltru and Della Rovere, so far as they were connected with Urbino. For the execution of his purpose, Mr. Dennistuun enjoyed numerous udyantages. He has resided in Italy for many years, and is well acquainted with the country whose history as a dukedom he intended to relate. Besides the common research in printed volumes, he has gained access to warious Italian libraries, including that of Urbino, and examined their manuscripts; and he has closely inspected Umbrian art, whether in palatial, military, or ecclesiastical architecture, or in painting. With the appreciation of Italy which such a course of study stimulates and implies, Mr. Dennistoun has good taste, a sound though not always an unbiassed judg. ment, and a zeal for mediæval subjects, especially art, almost enthusiastic."
