"Whether we consider the dense mass of novel information, the number of speeies for the first time introduced to our systems, the accuracy of the scientific details, the beauty and correctness of the illustrations, and the whole appearance of the book, it reflects the highest degree of credit upon the authors, the artist, and the Government."-Loudon.

Either of the Series, in 3 vols. may be had separately, at £4. 4s each in parts, or £4. 14s 6d half morocco; but separate Parts can only be sold at the original price.
This highly esteemed publication, by one of the most eminent Zoologists of the age, has long been considered very scarce, and from its being the sole property of the author, has not hitherto been sold under the published price. In consequence, however, of his leaving England, he has thought it advisable to dispose of the whole stock to the advertiser, who now offers the complete copies, which are very few in number, at the low prices affixed.
The whole of the figures are original, having been drawn by Mr. Swainson himself, chiefly from specimens in his own collection, and coloured under his immediate inspection. They are universally allowed to be unrivalled for beauty and fidelity.
"It might, perhaps, almost be deemed presumption to offer any remarks on a work emanating from the pen and pencil of, undoubtedly, the first Ornithologist of the day, but we feel it our duty to give our readers some idea of the contents of the Zoological Illustrations. It will be sufficient, if we mention that his coloured figures of birds are almost unequalled,-they are certainly not surpassed. The figures are beyond conception lovely and delicate, and it only remains for us to
remark, that EVERY_PHILOSOPHIC ORNITHOLOGIST VOYAGES SCIENTIFIQUES-continued. MUST POSSESS THE ZOOLOGICAL ILLUSTRATIONS, IF INDEED THEY ARE NOW TO BE HAD."
