volume of COLOURED PLATES, boards. £5.58

A description of remains discovered in the sites of ancient cities and temples in Peru, those objects which

arrested the attention and excited the wonder of the philosophic Humboldt, when investigating the
physical features of that remarkable country. The illustrative plates, executed at Vienna, from the
drawings of the artist, are among the marvels of lithography. They comprise representations of
mummified bodies, prepared in the manner peculiar to the Peruvians, vases of grotesque form and
characteristic idols in terra cotta and the precious metals, textile fabrics, weapons of a very remote
period, and view of temples and buildings, which, for symmetry and beauty, may vie with those of
Greece and Asia Minor in the dawn of civilisation, all executed with a spirit and truthfulness unsur-

passed by any work of the kind that has come under our notice.—Literary Gazette, Jan. 8, 1853.
