· NEW WORKS,

JUST PUBLISHED, and PREPARING FOR PUBLICATION.

Books published during the last Three Months.

Southey's Commonplace-book.

Third Series, being “ANALYTICAL READINGS ;" forming One
very large Volume, complete in itself, uniform with the First and
Second Series. Edited by Mr. Southey's Son-in-Law, the Rev. J. W.
Warter, B.D.

Square crown 8vo. 21s. “The third volume of the series is devoted to what the editor calls Analytical Readings on a great variety of subjects, -history of many kinds, biography, correspondence, voyages and travels, topography, &c. Large as the volume is, it has been formed by selections from a much larger manuscript collection; and furnishes still further proofs of Southey's extensive reading, and untiring labour."

SPECTATOR. "We are disposed to think this (THIRD SERIES--ANALYTICAL READINGS) the most important and useful series of Southey's Commonplace Books which has yet been made public....., Mr. Warter's service in preparing the readings for press must have been by no means inconsiderable. In several instances, we infer, Southey 'com. monplaced on the margin of the books read or consulted ; and this would necessitate much labour of selecting and copying. What is here presented, therefore, is but a careful choice from materials of infinitely larger extent. Almost on any one subject, Mr. Warter intimates, Southey's reading would have filled a volume like the present. What a comment is such a life on the love and uses of study! and what a lesson to men of the highest talent, that only by increasing labour in the best chosen fields can super-eminence of information be obtained."

2. Sacred and Legendary Art;

Or, Legends of the Saints and Martyrs. By Mrs. Jameson, Author of “ Legends of the Monastic Orders,” “ Characteristics of Women," &c. 2d Edition, complete in One Volume ; with numerous Wood Engravings, and Sixteen Etchings by the Author.

Square crown Sro. 28s. "A very able and interesting manual to the comprehension of a large branch of art,-those legendary pictures of the Roman Catholic faith which form the staple of the earlier schools, including the great schools of Italy. For its purpose the book is well planned.”

SPECTATOR. “Mrs. Jameson's cultivated mind seizes with intuitive sagacity on the ideas which the artists sought to embody in their performances, and those ideas she explains and illustrates with equal beauty of expression and poetic feeling. The volume is profusely illustrated, so that the reader has the advantage, while perusing the eloquent commentary of the gifted critic, of being able to consult more specimens of the ancient masters than he would probably find in all the collections of London put together. The book, indeed, may be regarded as a gallery of early art, as well as a delightful critical history of it."

BRITANNIA. "All the pleasurable enjoyment of which the subject is capable is vividly put before the reader. There is no inculcation of religious dogma through the side of religious art. The treatment is catholic, not Roman catholic. The book is as full of dainty devices as of fanciful and graceful thoughts. Poetry and painting alternate in it. The volume contains some eighty or ninety well-executed woodcuts, and a dozen or so of etchings by the writer. These are of course not pieces of art, but they are excellent pictorial aids to fancy and memory. The result is, that a subject full of beauty in itself, and suggestive of higher truths and associations in many ways connected with it, is placed before us in a readable and attractive form."

Suggestions for the better Management of

the Civil Concerns of the Navy. Taken from the Papers of the late Brigadier-General Sir Samuel Bentham, K.S.G., Inspector-General of Naval Works, and afterwards a Commissioner of the Navy. By M. S. B. With Observations on the Report of the Seleet Committee of the House of Commons on Navy Estimates, 1848.

8vo. 3s. 6d. e These suggestions were originally made by the late Brig.-Gen. Sir Samuel Bentham, who, from his position of Inspector-General of Naval Works, and subsequently as Commissioner of the Navy, had ample opportunities of gaining a thorough insight into the gross mismanagement and reckless extravagance which has always characterised the civil management of our navy. The suggestions are valuable, and, we trust, will speed the time when the abuses pointed out shall be remedied." WEEKLY NEWS.

Legends of the Monastic Orders,

As represented in the Fine Arts. Forming the Second Series of “ Sacred and Legendary Art.” By Mrs. Jameson, Author of "Characteristics of Women,” &c. Illustrated with 11 Etchings by the Author, and 84 Woodcuts.

Square crown 8vo. 283. "With the remembrance fresh upon us of the pleasure we received from Mrs. Jameson's previous work on Sacred and Legendary Art, it was with no ordinary feeling of expectation that we turned to the continuation of her labours in the elegant volume before us ; nor have our expectations been disappointed...... We might easily fill our columns with extracts; but we prefer sending our readers to the volume, to cull sweets for themselves. It will prove a favourite manual, we are persuaded, for many more than the mere connoisseur or the artist. The numerous cuts and etchings with which it is embellished, and the general elegance with which it is got up, will make it an ornament for any drawing-room table."

WEEKLY NEWS. “The execution of the book before us is on the same plan as that of the book which we formerly so highly praised. It has the same graceful union of poetical criticism and pictorial illustration. It has the same slight but clever woodcuts and etchings, in which, for the feeling of art, we can gladly spare its stricter requirements, and find both memory and fancy most pleasantly assisted. We note also (which was observable in the former series) the careful throwing out into prominence such truth of popular belief as even the fabulous extravagance of the monastic legends cannot altogther conceal....... The writing in the volume is careful throughout, often touched with singular niceties of feeling, and, upon the whole, quite remarkable for avoidance of what was painful and repulsive in the theme.....The illustrations improve, we think, in vividness and certainty of execution, and are more striking in this volume than its predocessors."

EXAMINER. “After an introduction on the scope and philosophy of the subject, the plan of the present work is to give a sketch of the orders with their sub-orders, and the biography of the founders, followed by that of the principal members; the intrinsio interest of the life being as much as auything else a determining element of the scale. Interwoven with or allised to each life there is much symbolio and artistical matter. The reader is instructed as to the proper dress and accompanying signs that should and generally do discriminate one person from another; a critical account is given of the most remarkable pictures in which the saint appears; and when a series of life-pictures has been painted, exhibiting the leading incidents of his career, the most complete is selected for description. By this means the book accomplishes several purposes. It furnishes a good introduction for those who wish to pursue the subject of monastic history or monastic art; it provides a clear, rapid, and elegantly-written account of both subjects, for readers to whom a popular compendium is sufficient, and it will form a superior artistical guide-book to those who are about to make an intelligent tour, pointing out as it does some of the finest or most curious pictures in the churches or collections of France, Italy, and Spain...... The volume is illustrated by plates, drawn and etched by Mrs. Jameson, and sometimes, it may be said, compiled, so far as taking parts of a picture, or bringing together from various pictures, two or more figures to illustrate the text. These plates not only prove the varied accom. plishments of the fair artist-author, and illustrate the text by an exhibition to the eye, but give a character of dress to the volume, and serve in a small degree as contributions to the history of legendary religious art. There are also woodcuts that answer the same end."
