A REMARKABLY CHOICE COPY. TURNER (J. M. W.) PICTURESQUE VIEWS IN ENGLAND AND WALES, with

Descriptive and Historic Illustrations by H. E. Lloyd, 96 large and beautiful engravings by the best artists, very fine original impressions, 2 vols. folio, LARGE PAPER, russia extra, gilt edges (FINE COPY), £31. 108

1838 The England and Wales” of Turner has always been considered his greatest work. His varied excellencies can only be properly appreciated when seen in fine impressions of the engravings, like the above.—"J. M. W. TURNER is the only man who has ever given an entire transcript of the whole system of nature, and is, in this point of view, the ONLY PERFECT LANDSCAPE PAINTER whom the world has ever seen."--Ruskin's Modern Painters.

A REMARKABLY BRILLIANT COPY.
ANOTHER COPY, ARTIST'S PROOFS ON INDIA PAPER, with Descriptive and
Historic Accounts of each View, by H. E. LLOYD; 2 vols. colombier folio,
LARGEST PAPER, half morocco, top edges gilt, £105.

A very choice copy as to impressions ; but as the whole of the Descriptive Text is inlaid to the size of the plates, it is offered at a proportionate reduction from its intrinsic value.
