Besides serving to illustrate, architecturally and scientifically, the styles and varieties of the Ancient Buildings of Normandy, the work tends to exemplify the variations between the Early Architecture of that country and of England; and thus furnishes data for the Critical Antiquary, and Practical Examples for the Architect. “Mr. Pugin's works furnish the most valuable practical instructions—they are standards of taste to which we can constantly refer, and we sincerely hope he will prosecute his labours with unabated zeal.”— Literary Gazette.

“The present work is devoted exclusively to 60tbit Jurniture ; and its chief object is to demonstrate that this style is not less adapted to the interior than to the exterior decoration of houses, and that, when properly understood, it is capable of affording greater variety than the Greek and Roman. Some of the Royal Palaces, as well as several of the Mansions of our nobility and gentry, lately erected, and now building, furnish triumphant proofs of these positions, in the magnificence and richness which they display; and they must serve to convince every enlightened mind that we have models enough in our reach, without borrowing from other countries.”

PUGIN's Moror:RN FURNITURE. Consisting of Fortyfour coloured Engravings from designs by A. Pugin, J. Stafford (of Bath), and others, with descriptive letter-press, in 4to. cloth lettered, with Forty-four Plates, coloured. Reduced to 16s. (published at ll. 16s.) “The present Work is rich in Window Draperies, for which it is chiefly indebted to the acknowledged abilities of Mr. Stafford, of Bath, whose exertions to ennoble the science of domestic embellishment deserve the highest commendation: especially as that difficult and important branch of the upholstery art, drapery in general,

requires the talents of the draughtsman, combined with professional erperience and taste.”

102 plates drawn and etched by A. W. Pugin, 4to. half-bound morocco elegant, nith gilt edges, (published at 4t. 14s. 6d.) reduced - to 21. 12s. 6d. - 1826 - Euch work is sold separately at the reduced price of 12s in eloth. We rejoice in Mr. Pug IN's return to his career of usefulness, in rescuing from oblivion some of the interesting details of those Wooden Fabrics which are fast disappearing, not more from natural decay than from the spirit of alteration, which has affected those continental towns. They still retain, however, far more numerous traces of these productions of the Gothic periods of the art, than most of our own cities. We are not inclined to think that such a style of construction will ever again be generally adopted in this country; but such examples as this volume contains must be invaluable to the architect, engaged in the erection of country dwellings, composed in the character of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. The specimens are selected with judgment, and executed with facility of handling.

The chief beauties of our North American territories lie on or near the magnificent rivers whose margins teem with cataracts, from the subsidiary streams flowing into them; indeed the numerous falls give a character to the country, and when we regard their vast height, reaching, as at Montmorency, to 240 feet, in one vast, unbroken sheet, a large river, giving its name and waters to the cataract, or as at Niagara, forming a semicircle of a mile in circumference, we may be excused for considering them as primary features in the country. Should it excite surprise that it has been preferred to give a sketch of Niagara from above, we can only offer as an excuse, the full sense of our inability to give to one who has never seen the falls, any idea of the grandeur from below.
