1838 “ Mr. Cotman is beyond all comparison the most spirited and forcible of the Architectural Draughtsmen of the present age. His Etchings have all the richness and vigour of the best artists of the old School, and are highly prized by all who are capable of appreciating them."
“'The plates, etched and drawn by Mr. Cotman, are recommended by a high degree of merit and interest ; most of the subjects which this indefatigable artist has chosen are hitherto inedited monuments.

1844 This is a work of great interest for all Oriental Scholars and Comparative Mythologists.
Sir William Jones describes this work as containing “more recondite learning, more entertaining history, more beautiful poetry, more ingenuity and wit, indecency and blasphemy, than he ever saw collected in a single volume." It contains an account of the old Persian, the Brahmin, the Buddhist, the Christian, the Sufi, and the Mohammedan religions, with their various sects; as well as a statement of their doctrines. It is most valuable for its exposition of the Zoroastrian crecd, as this is based upon ancient Zend works now entirely lost.

Digby's Broad Stone of Honour-continued. 1829 and 1848, after he had embraced the ancient faith of Europe, and thereby found himself obliged to make considerable alterations in the text. The product of a highly sensitive and graceful genius, richly stored with learning, it stands in the same relation to the History of Chivalry as the works of Mr. Ruskin to the History of Art. No ancient romancer, nor yet Mr. Tennyson in our own time, has ever painted Knighthood in such beautiful shape and delicate colouring; and the enthusiasm which breathes throughout the work reveals the nature of the author himself as
entical with the type he portrays. In spite of the vast knowledge of olden times and mediæval literature which is visible in every passage of his book, there is no mouldiness of antiquity, no dust or rust, on the mirror of his intellect; his style is simple and unaffected; and to any mind, in which high and noble thoughts can ever harbour, the reading of the Broad Stone of Honour will be as delightful and full of charm as the Earlier Romances of Chivalry.

Utrecht, 1877 DURER'S APOCALYPSE, his master-piece of wood engraving, has now been reproduced so perfectly that even connoisseurs might mistake these facsimiles for original impressions. La Grande Passion par Albert Durer, en
douze Gravures sur bois, Nurembery, anno 1511; reproduction, procédé A. W. van de Weijer, d'après les épreuves avant le lettre appartenant au Cabinet de Dr. Straeter, Aix la Chapelle, avec une Introduction par G.

Utrecht, 1875 This work deserves support from a wide circle, for at the price at which it is offered no greater boon could be conferred on the Art-loving public. A facsimile reproduction of such a series of engravings—the masterpieces of the greatest of all German artists-ought to be hailed with gladness by those who know the fame of Dürer, and the extreme difficulty of obtaining his original works even at a very high cost.
The great and little Passion, by Dürer, are in preparation. Durer's Engraved Works, folio, 104 of the
most superb Engravings and Etchings, on Copper and Steel, by this the greatest of all German Artists, reproduced in facsimile, giving all the brilliancy of the original first impressions, with a German text by Lübke, in parts, £7. 78
