2 86 “ This is a very delightful work for all who take an interest in perusing the great volume of Nature, and admire the beauty of her works. The engravings are executed with great spirit and neatness, from the paintings of foreign masters, and also from those of the English school which takes so high a rank in this walk of art. Many are the most perfect delineations possible of the animals they are intended to represent.”—New Monthly Magazine, March 1.
“ We know of no work of this kind that has been hitherto published, and are much surprised that it should have been left so long undone. Its execution, however, could not well have fallen into better hands; and we look upon this little work as a very valuable addition to the library of the naturalist and the lover of art.”—Times, Sept. 11.
“ This is one of the most interesting publications that has recently appeared, connected with the Fine Arts, not only from its intrinsic merit, but from its novelty. It is as useful to the student as generally pleasing to the amateur.”—Globe and Traveller.
“ The grand characteristic of these prints is, their justness and accuracy of form, character, and expression. Nature is stamped upon all---Nature in her delightful variety and most interesting aspects.”---Morning Chronicle,
