“ The design of this very pleasing and attractive story is to shew the errors of Tractarianism, and the happy effects that flow from a strict discharge of our duties, religious and moral.

Edited by BOLTON CORNEY, Esg. Illustrated with Seventy-seven Designs drawn ou Wood,
by the following Members of the Etching Club :-
J. Bell, Sculptor,
J. C. Horsley,

Frank Stone,

H. J. Townsend,
C.W. Cope,
J. P. Knight;

C. Stonhouse,

T. Webster, A.R.A.
Thomas Creswick, R. Redgrave, A.R.A. F. Tayler,

Engraved by Thompson and other eminent Engravers.
Square crown 8vo. One Guinea ; bound in morocco, in the best manner, by Hayday, 368.

« Few works of the class have a fairer prospect of popularity than this new edition of THOMSON, illustrated by the members of the Etching Club. Most of the designs are in accordance with the spirit of the author,--some of them beautiful. The landscape vignettes contributed by Mr. CRESWICK entitle him to a first place as a book-illustrator : exhibiting a versatility of talent for which his warmest admirers could hitherto have hardly ventured to give him credit. Mr. F. TATLER is not far behind, as his designs at pp. 11, 12, and 26, will most satisfactorily prove; and he comes one step Dearer historical art than Mr. Creswick, in right of his clever management of rustic figures. Messrs. COPE, HORSLEY, REDGRAVE, and BELL, with all their true English feeling, and the grace of their conceptions, are a degree more ambitious. Mr. BELL's preparatory outline of Spring' gives indications of grace, poetry, and fancy, worthy of being carried to the highest perfection. This book is beautifully brought out; the vigvettes are from copper blocks, produced by the electrotype process. This gives a peculiarity of effect to the impressions more easy to perceive than to describe. Other of our classical poems are to follow, illustrated in a similar fashion. Mr. BOLTON CORNEY'S labours are not the less to be commended because they are unobtrusive: the work is extremely well edited, and therefore entitled to a place on the library shelf as well as on the drawing-room table."-ATHEN EUX.

Or, Superior People. By Mrs. TROLLOPE, Author of “ Widow Barnaby," &c. 3 vola. post 8vo. 318. 6d. boards.

“ Mrs. Trollope gains upon public opinion, as a novel writer, by every successive production of her prolific pen. The Laurringtons, her last new novel, is vastly superior to Widow Barnaby,' on which we conclude, from its being associated with her name in the title-page, she founds her pretensions to public regard. The plot is simple; the characters comparatively few, and their positions, sayings, and doings, perfectly in keeping. We predict that the work will be a favourite with the novel-reading portion of the public. "Glo BE.

" To the manufacturing districts of England, to practical engineers, chemists, and inventors in all the branches of science, and, indeed, to all classes concerned in industrial pursuits, this work is one of the most valuable epitomes of information that has probably ever been published. Dr. Ure is perhaps better qualified than almost any other writer to render a work of this varied and useful description every thing that it onght to be. It forms an indispensable work of reference to men of science and manufacturers, for practical purposes, and to every reader who is incidentally interested in any of the numerous subjects of which it treats."-ATLAS.

The preliminary observations, as well as the general instructions, are written in an intelligible, practical manner, which conveys the substance of many a treatise of greater pretensions in few words. Many of the designs are of unusual merit. We would instance the marine views, especially that which includes the fgures of two fishermen, and the view of a rustic hut, near which passes a road traversed by a group of travellers. We cordially recommend this excellent drawing-book to all persons desirous of learning the rudiments of the fine arts."-ATLAS.

“This curious Diary embraces thirteen years of the most important portion of the civil war under Charles I.; and it is interesting to see the views of that deplorable conflict brought home to the hearths and bosoms of domestic life, by interspersing the narrative of public events with pictures of their evil consequences on every class of society. Ia this consists a true charm; for the fine moral and religious tone, the love of nature, the homely conduct of family affairs, the condition of various ranks, the Isaac-Walton-like simplicity of feeling, are here all finely thrown together to make a general and genuine panorama of that troubled age. We leave the later dangers of Lord Willoughby, when so nearly sacrificed by those whose cause he espoused, till he found the king's murder resolved upon, to furnish much more agreeable reading to those who may look from our extracts to find this pleasant volume as entertaining

as we have done."-LITERARI GAZETTE. WOOD.-A PRACTICAL TREATISE ON RAILROADS, AND
