XI. Thus, out of the whole 30 classes into which the general producers have been divided, a large proportion of no less than 24 classes are immediately interested in matters of art and taste, over and above the mere mechanical skill implied in their avocations; and however unconscious many of the above-enumerated artizans and skilled workmen may be of the essential importance of what is termed taste to their own success in their several trades, it is an absolute truth, that however useful and mechanically ingenious an article may be, it becomes greatly more .valuable in every sense, if it combines elegance with use. It performs higher services, administering to intellectual as well as material wants/ .

• XII. It is the little more or less taste that is displayed that often decides the fortunes of individuals, and will frequently explain the inequalities in life, which it is difficult to account for in any other way.

XIII. It is, then, to give every man his chance for the common advantage, that the present organization of what may be termed an Art Manufactures Library has been undertaken. Its peculiar advantages are these: it is intended to bring together, in the course of time, all works, wherever published, which may in any way illustrate, or aid in the development of, the useful arts in relation to taste, in matters of personal or domestic use, and every variety of social refinement depending on manufacturing skill.

XIV. The arrangement of this library is as important as its contents. Many libraries in Europe may already contain an immense assortment of such works as the scheme of this library indicates, but they are inaccessible to the class above all others calculated to derive immediate benefit from them. The artizan, or even the manufacturer, is able to make but a limited use of the vast library of the British Museum. It may contain all that he wants, and is accessible to him after he has obtained the privilege of admission to the library; but, when he has conformed to the rules which give him access, he must know exactly what he wants, and look for it; but the chance will be, that he may not find what he wants, and his trouble and labour will be thrown away. There is, however, this serious obstruction in the way of the student,—it is the necessity of knowing the precise work
