It is not very creditable to the liberal curiosity of the English public, that there should have been no complete edition of the Works of Dr. Franklin till the year 1806. The public is very much indebted to the editor of the present collection. It is presented in a cheap and unostentatious form, and seems to have been compiled with sufficient diligence, and arranged with considerable judgment. Dr. Franklin was the most rational perhaps of all philosophers.” Ed. Rev.

" This we think is a very elegant and interesting publication. In the execution of his task Mr. Bell has not only given new proofs of his intimate acquaintance with his professional science, but has indicated a taste and a feeling for the excellence both of Sculpture and Painting; and entered at the saine time into all the difficulties and porplexities of the student, with a zeal and a sympathy wbich cannot fail to be very gratifying. The conception and execution of the sketches do great credit to the talents and taste of the author. They are for the most part extremely striking and expressive.” Ed. Rev. The production before iis we consider as valuable and highly respectable; its errors are errors of genius, Mr. Bell is particularly fitted for the task which he has ndertaken ; his fame. as an anatomist of the first rank, needs no celebration from us; his observation has been extensive, accurate, and scientific; and having combined the regni. sites of a classical taste, a philosophical view, and delicate perception of feel. ing, with a facility in the use of the pencil by no means common in an amateur, he has pursued his investigations with singular advantages, and at the same time rendered his work highly interesting, not merely to professional men but to general readers." Ecl. Rev. “ This work inust become an object of study to every one who is interested in the perfection of the art respecting which it treats. It cannot fail to give satifaction both to the professional man and the amateur, and we believe that few of either class will not feel themselves in. structed as well as gratified by its perusal." Mon. Rev.
