Notwithstanding the comparatively recent date of this publication, we question if anjr
of our public libraries contain a complete set of this GRAND SERIES or

Strange to say, the National Library at Washington lacks some of the volumes. So
the Astor Library, the Public Library at Boston, etc., are in the same con-
dition. This set is complete, with the exception of one vol. of the Crus-
tacea, and Pickering on the Geographical Distribution of Animals which
last is not unfrequently to be found.

An opportunity to procure so fine and so complete a set has never occurred since the
publication of the work, and is not ilkely to occur again ; and we venture
to suggest to those who now only possess part of a set, that they sh
secure this and sell their duplicates.

charming Pastoral ever published. To the late tasteful publisher, Mr.
Pickering, its production was literally a labor of love. Neither time nor

quiet and unaffected philanthropy, and interspersed with some fine relic*
of old poetry, songs, and ballads." BOWLES.
