NEW NATIONAL WORK. LIVES of EMINENT and ILLUSTRIOUS ENGLISHMEN, From Alfred the Great to the Latest Times, on an Original Plan. Edited by George Godfrey CUNNINGHAM. Illustrated by a Series of finely executed Portraits, selected from the most Authentic Sources, and Engraved by Eminent Artists. To be completed in about 40 Parts, 2s. each, making 8 vols. 8vo.

“We can warmly recommend this work as worthy of patronage, whether for ability of execution, utility of plan, or cheapness. Leeds Intelligencer. “ We conceive it one of the most meritorious historical works that has lately been projected." ---Tut's Edinburgh Nagazine. We have no hesitation in pronouncing this a work of the highest value."-

Leeds Times. This work has no ordinary claims to public favour; indeed we know of none in all respects so well calculated for initiating youth, without labour or effort on their part, in a knowledge of the leading characters and facts of English history, and thus preparing iheir minds for future and more labori. ous study, in one of the most important branches of knowledge."--Caledonian Mercury. " As far as the work has yet gone, we are happy to say that the execution is equal to the felicity of the design, and answerable to the expectations which we had been led to form by our knowledge of the ability and varied acquirements of the Editor. The whole work displays much learning, much impartiality, and considerable powers both of thinking and writing.”—Liverpool Mercury. “In this age of literary productions, and productions of merit too, there are very few that have such strong claims to patronage as the Lives of Eminent and Illustrious Englishmen.'' Brighton Patriot. “We can, and do most conscientiously recommend, this National Work to the notice of our readers. The style is as lucid as its arrangements are perspicuous. The marrow of History has been carefully extracted, and is offered up without the dry bones,-it is concise without being obscure, learned without being pedantic. The plates are exceedingly beautiful, they may vie with any specimens of modern Portrait Engraving."-Lincoln Gazette.
