THE RETROSPECTIVE REVIEW.

CONSISTING OF
Criticisms upon, Analyses of, and Extracts from curious, useful, and va-

luable Books in all Languages, which have been published from the

revival of Literature to the Commencement of the present Century.
The objects of this work are, in the first place-

To supply an instructive and entertaining Miscellany, which shall
not, like the modern Reviews, be conversant about the literature of
the day; but which will attempt to recall the attention of the Public
to the valuable productions of former times.

2. To revive the memory of undeservedly neglected Books; and,
by pointing out the merits of those which may be deemed worthy of re-
commendation, assist the reader in the formation of his Library.

3. By its numerous and carefully selected extracts, to furnish a
collection of specimens of the greater part of our English and other
authors, from the earliest times of modern literature.

-4. To afford an abstract of those Works, which are too bulky or
too tedious for general perusal, and of which an analysis may oftentimes
be as useful, and more agreeable, than the originals; and to extract

the only curious or valuable parts from Books otherwise worthless.
And lastly

To open a publication for the reception of bibliographical notices
and communications, and of original letters of celebrated men and cu-
rious extracts from old MSS.

This Review will be continued Quarterly, each Number containing
about 200 pages of handsomely printed letter press, price 5s.

Early in January,
THE TRAGEDIES OF ALFIERI,

Translated in Blank Verse by Charles Lloyd :
The second edition ; to which is added, MEMOIRS OF THE LIFE AND

WRITINGS OF ALFIERI, with his Portrait finely engraved by Cooper ; 4 vols. 12mo. 21s.

" ALFIERI is the great name of this age.”—Lord Byron. “ Such as these Dramas are,—holding so high a place in Italian Literature,

and in European reputation,—they well deserved to be translated; nor would it have been easy to find a more competent Translator than the Writer, who has with so much ability and acuteness characterized them.”

Quarterly Review. “ In his own way, ALFIERI, we think, is excellent. His fables are all ad

mirably contrived, and completely developed : his dialogue is copious and progressive: and his characters all deliver natural sentiments with great beauty, and often with great force of expression.”

i Edinburgh Review.

MEMOIRS OF THE LIFE AND WRITINGS OF

ALFIERI.
WITH PORTRAIT, 12mo. 5s.6d.

Recently Published,

ISABEL; A TALE, By CHARLES LLOYD, 2 vols. 12mo. 10s. “It is evidently the work of a man of talents, full of enthusiasm, of strong

and uncontrouled powers, and is written from feeling and passion, rather than from the cold and calculating dictates of authorship. It is, therefore bold, and sometimes paradoxical, involving the best interests of the human heart in the inexplicable mazes of metaphysical sentiment, and exhibiting the martyrdom of overwrought virtue, dying the victim of passion, but triumphant over frailty and death."-Monthly Review, June 1820.
