THE FRESCOES OF RAPHAEL drawn from the originals in the VATICAN by N. Consons under the direction of L. GRUNER, oblong royal folio, 52 beautiful large lithographic plates, printeil in tints, hf. bound, cloth sides, gilt edges, £3. 38

1852 The complete Edition of this Work, consisting of copies of the celebrated Frescoes of Raphael, from the Originals in the Corridor of the Vatican, called "La Loggia di Rafaelle,” is now offered to the Englisb public. The ExtIRE SERIES of FIFTY-TWO FRESCOES is here represented ;-a Selection only of Forty plates having been previously issued.

The Prints have been prepared under Mr. Gruner's superintendence by. Sigr. N. Consoni, one of the most distinguished draughtsmen in Rome, and no pains have been spared to exhibit in them the grand simplicity of the Originals. The large size of the Plates bas enabled the Artist to give the broad outlines of the Originals without omitting the finer lines which so peculiarly characterize them. The Prints have been lithographed, in such a style, however, as to resemble Engravings on wood, in order to avoid the greatly increased cxpense which the latter would have involved ; but any disadvantages connected with this have been more than counterbalanced by the greater power which, on the plan adopted, the Artist has been enabled himself to exercise over the Plates.

1838-49 Imperfect sets completed. The Tite copy fetched £7. 10s. Lady Charlotte Guest's Mabinogion : LARGE

PAPER, 3 vols. imperial 8vo. fucsimiles and woodcuts, brown morocco extra, gilt edges by Bedford, £21.

1838-49 The last Large Paper copy;

This valuable work has hitherto been extremely rare; a few copies have been discovered in Mr. Rees' stock, hence the reduction in price. Lovers of Celtic Literature should hasten to secure it, as the stock is nearly sold, and the price will soon return to the late high figure.

“I hold every literature to be valuable, which springs from the heart of a people, and is connected with their warmest feelings; and I am inclined to believe, that there inust be some particular charm in that literature, which has found such grace in ladies' eyes, as to attract those of one (Lady Charlotte Guest, who is surrounded by so many other objects to court her attention, and to spend a part of their lustre, in tracing the characters of half-faded manuscripts, in order to reproduce them for our instruction and amusement, in the most elegant form; and I may surely renture to say, that if the Elzevirs, and Bodonis, and Didots, must hide their diminished heads before our Llandovery Printer, we may challenge a comparison with all the learned ladies, who have adorned the literature of Europe, for her, whose works his labours have contributed to embellish."- Dr. Thirlwall, Bishop of St. David's.

“I cannot quote the Mabinogion, without expressing a grateful sense of the obligations Lady Charlotte Guest has conferred upon all lovers of our early literature, in her invaluable edition and translation of that interesting collection of British Romances." —Sir E. Bulwer Lytton.

“Three circumstances conspire to render Lady Charlotte Guest's publication of The Mabinogion one of the most extraordinary productions of the day. Ist. The intrinsic merit of the Tales themselves, whether considered with reference to the light thrown by them on the manners, habits, and mythologies of the ancient Welsh, or as mere literary compositions-in which latter respect they may assuredly take rank with the best of their class in any conntry. 2nd. From the fact of an English Lady, born to rank, and nurtured in all the refinements and accomplishments of her age, devoting herself to, and successfully achieving a task which Celtic scholars, learned in antiquities, and imbued with all the nationality and enthusiasm for which they have ever been proverbial, had, for generations, shrunk from in despair-namely, the translation and illustration of these strange and mysterious fictions; and, thirdly, the circumstance of the printing press of a hitherto obscure Welsh town, 200 miles from London, being able to produce a work, which, for typographical elegance, may challenge comparison with the very choicest specimens of metropolitan art.”—The Cheltenham Looker-On.

Y Gododin, a Poem on the Battle of Cattraeth, by ANEURIN, a

Welsh Bard of the sixth century, with an English translation, and Historical and critical annotations; by John WILLIAMS, AB ITIIEL, crown 8vo. cloth,

1852 Few copies remain for sale.

The Gododin, the subject of which is the disastrous battle of Cattraeth, contains upwards of 900 lines, and is the oldest Welsh poem extant, having been written in the early part of the sixth century.
