OUR SUBCRIBERS and the Public, are referred to the EMBELLISHMENTS in the trea preceding and present Numbers, as Specimens of the taste, and finish in which they may expect the ornamental part of this Work to be executed in future. The PORTRAITS will form a new and interesting Series of Cabinet Prints, which are properly adapted for being framed and glased, er for preservation in Portfolios, as they may be always admired as a Biographical and Portrait representation of distinguished Female characters of the present times. The COSTUMES of every Month will form a practical and highly interesting Collection of the Fashions of these days; the continued variations as they arise will ascertain the fuctuating state of the Fashionable World.

In deference and respect to the numerous requests which the Publisher has received from his present Subscribers, in consequence of the very interesting and highly finished Farewell Portrait Print of Mrs. SIDDONS, giren in the last Number of this work, he will present the Public, in the succeeding Numbers, with a short series of PORTRAITS OF FEMALE PERFORMERS of the greatest Celebrity of the present times; accompanied with characteristic Memoirs and Criticisms on their professional merits. All to be taken from original Pictures of great estimation, and engraven and finished in a style of excellence not inferior to the highly admired Print of Mrs. Siddons above referred to. The next Dramatic Portraits in succession given in this work will be, April 1.-MISS SMITH, engraven by CARDON, after an original Miniature. May 1,--MRS. BILLINGTON, in the character of St. CECILIA, after the celebrated Picture

by Sir Joshua REYNOLDS, engraven by CARDON, in a most beautiful manner. June 1.--MRS. JORDAN, as a Farewell Print, in the character of Thalia, engraven by Mr.

CARDON, after the much admired Picture painted by the late Mr. Hopxgr, in the

possession of his Royal Highness the Duke of CLARENCE. July 1.--MRS. DICKONS, from an admirable likeness in Crayons.

The Criticism on Mrs. SIDDONS' Professional Merits will certainly appear in our next Number.
