One of the superior copies of this magnificent work, having all the plates beautifully colored in exact imitation of the original paintings and monuments, and likewise printed on a large and fine paper; it was published at upwards of £200, and is vastly superior in coloring to the copies usually offered. Brunet very properly calls it "Cet ouvrage de la plus grande magnificence." "When, some four centuries ago, the enterprise of Spanish navigators opened the vast continent of America to the admiration of Europe, the Civilization of the New World was found to be concentrated in two spots, and two only, of that enormous territory. One of these favored regions was Peru; the other was Mexico. It was in Mexico especially that Art, Politics and Science had received their greatest development. All the rest of North America, was desolate and barbarous, and populated by savages without knowledge or laws. Mexico, alone, redeemed the character of the new continent, and presented to the eyes of the invaders a spectacle so marvellous as to satisfy even the expectations which the great discovery had raised." Times, Dec. 8, 1858. KIRBY AND SPENCE. AN INTRODUCTION TO ENTOMOLOGY, or Elements of the Natural History of Insects. 30 Plates mostly colored from Nature. 4 vols., 8vo, half calf. 1828. $12.

In this work a vast amount of material, acquired after many years' unremitting observation of the insect world is mingled together by two different but congenial minds, in the pleasant form of familiar letters. The charm based on a substantial knowledge of the subject, which these letters impart, has caused them to be stu died with an interest never before excited by any work on natural history and they have served for the model of many an interesting and instructive volume.

It took its name from Christopher Ca, a pastry-cook," (at whose house the meetings of the club were first held).-BOYER's Life of Q. Anne. 4

IN. A Pictorial and Literary Sketch of the British Empire. With several hundred fine Engravings on Steel and Wood. 4 vols. in two, imp. 8vo, cloth. $10. Half calf. $14. 1153 More than 300 years ago John Leland, the first English topographer, addressing his patron, Henry VIII., thus writes: "I have travelled in by the seacoast and the middle parts, sparing neither labor and costs, by the space of these six years past, that there is almost neither cape nor bay, haven, creek or pier, rivers, lakes, meres, mountains, valleys, moors, heaths, forests, woods, cities, boroughs, castles, manor places, monasteries and colleges but I have seen them, and noted in so doing a whole world of things very memorable. And because that it may be more permanent and fur ther known, than to have it engraved in silver and bra ss, I intend, by the leave of God, within the twelve months following, such a description to make of your realm in writing, that it shall be no mastery after for the graver or painter to make alike by a perfect example.'

The honest antiquary did not accomplish his ambitious purpose. The labor of a life-and his was a short life

would have been insufficient in those days "to paint all the realm in its native colors," In these volumes Charles Knight has done, and done well, all that John Leland was unable to accomplish.

"It was an article published in The Times in 1854 which first induced him (C. Knight) seriously to contemplate the production of the last aud greatest literary work of his life a 'general' History of England. He had already produced a Pictorial' history; but he had frequently contemplated something on a larger scale, and during the course of his extensive reading he had gleaned many stores of materials for a comprehensive History of the People. The remarks of The Times, however, led him, as he tells us, To depart from the original design of writing a domestic History of England apart from its public history.. Upon a more extended plan,' he adds, I would endeavor to trace through our long-continued annals the essential connection between our political and social history. To accomplish this I would not keep the people in the background as is done in many histories, and I would call my work the Popular History of England.' This history will remain, for many a long day to come, a standard work in its class." Times, March 10, 1873.
