being the gleanings of many years by a diligent collector from the London
print emporiums, reinforced by numerous additions of rare plates from the
continent. No prominent subject has been neglected, while of many
there are various illustrations. The variety of design of which such a work
admits is very great, permitting not only portraits of the artists, but exhi-

bitions of their works, and specimens of engravers and peculiar style* of
art. All of these various sources of interest have been provided for in
these richly decorated volumes. They have been prepared in London with
great care, are all, when necessary, tastefully and carefully inlaid, and ex-
hibit, as a whole, a comprehensive view of the fine arts, embracing different
countries and eras, from the revival of painting to the present day. The
cost of the preparation of such a work can be properly estimated only
by those who have made similar attempts at illustration. In this country
it would be impossible to procure the engravings, but, wherever procured,
the expense in the destruction of costly works, to say nothing of the long-
continued search for the material, must be very great. The work, as now
perfected, invites careful examination, and will well repay the attention of
students of art."

The work is based on Bryan's " Dictionary," concerning whom a writer in the Literary
Gazette justly remarks : " No private individual has been more conspicuous
in the annals of British art than the late Michael Bryan, Esq. j and very
few, if any, of his contemporaries have had so much influence in all mat-
ters of refined connoisseurship as he exercised for a number of years. His
skill and judgment in pictures were looked up to as decisive of the merit
or demerit of paintings, whether derived from ancient masters or from the
easels of modern genius, and many hundred thousand pounds have been
expended upon his dicta in affairs of this kind. His valuable publication,
the ' Biographical and Critical Dictionary of Engravers,' is a great improve-
ment as well as enlargement of Pilkington's design, and is an evidence of
the diligence and talents of the author, which will hand down his name
with distinction to the latest posterity."
