The Architectural Drawings of the late Mr. Wild are as remarkable for their fidelity, as for their freedom and effect, and are highly appreciated by Artists.

"The subjects are well chosen; the architecture is grand and rich almost to redundancy; the artist has represented them with great exactness, but with spirit, and they are beautifully correct."-Times.

"This is a most interesting work. None knew better than the late Mr. Charles Wild how to select and delineate the beauties of Gothic Architecture."

This exquisite work has called forth the admiration of all lovers of the fine arts. It was got up without limit to expense, by a well known traveller of taste, and is thought by engravers to be the finest work of Acenery ever produced in this country. Owing to the demise of the author, it has been for some time locked up from the public, and had become so scarce a book as scarcely to be known in the trade. It completes the sceneries of Capt. Batty, Cockburn, and Mr. Brockedon, and is the only pretty set of Views in Greece pablished in this country.

"Well entitled is Mr. Williams to call these views select; for they are so in every fine and high sense of the word. The choice of subjects, the exquisite beauty of the execution, and above all, the poetical feeling displayed, render them truly fascinating. Art seems to be carried here to its highest extent."

On Wood's monument at Richmoud are these words. "The beautiful editions of Balbec and Palmyra, illus. trated by the classic pen of Robert Wood, supply a nobler and more lasting monument, and will survive those august remains."

"Of all the antiquities that have been communicated to the world; of all the remains of ancient monuments brought from the East, none can be compared with the ruins of Palmyra and of Balbec; not only on account of their stupendous magnificence, but for the extraordinary diligence of those gentlemen who have favoured the public with this view of them, and the accuracy and elegance of the designs.
