SPHE PUBLISHERS have, at great expense, and by exercis

ing unusual care and patience, succeeded in securing a large number of beautiful and attractive illustrations for the Davis MEMORIAL VOLUME, many of which are of rare historical valde. We are greatly indebted to W. L. Sheppard, whose intimate acquaintance and association with many of the characters and scenes presented in the book enabled him to not only draw for us many striking and interesting pictures, but to make suggestions that were exceedingly helpful to other artists engaged in preparing the illustrations for the book. Mr. W. W. Davies, of the Lee Gallery, Richmond, Virginia, also places us under lasting obligations to him by furnishing us many photographs taken during and soon after the war. We would note specially the Grand Jury, and Petit Jury, Members of Mr. Davis's Cabío net, photograph of Mrs. Davis in full dress, with the aid of which Mr. Sheppard was enabled to draw the charming pioture entitled “A Reception at the White House by Mr. and Mrs. Davis.” The originals of these and other photographs used in illustrating the book are now in possession of Mr. Davies, of the Lee Gallery, and copyrighted by us in producing this work.
