Published by Subscription-A Volume issued monthly, containing a Novel complete-Price, $1 60.

The Publishers will commence February 1,1859, the publication of an entirely new edition of the Novels of J. FENIMORE COOPER, issued with great elegance, and illustrated on steel and wood from drawings by F. 0. C. DARLEY. The size will be Crown Octavo; the type clear and elegant; it will be printed on a beautiful cream-tinted and calendered paper, of superior stock and finish, manufactured expressly for this edition ; bound in embossed cloth, with beveled edges, and stamped in gilt upon the side and back, from new and appropriate designs.

Each volume will contain two steel plates, and twelve designs on wood, all from the pencil of Darley, making a total in the series of nearly FIVE HUNDRED DRAWINGS, at a cost exceeding Twenty Thousand Dollars. The steel plates are the most costly works of art of their kind yet produced in this country. The spirited and admirable drawings by Mr. Darley, whose genius was never so much at home as upon the picturesque pages of Cooper, have been engraved with bank note delicacy and finish, in Line and Etching, at a cost far exceeding the usual expenditure upon publications of the kind.

The entire series will be completed in thirty-two volumes, uniform, containing the author's latest revisions and corrections, embracing :

THE PIONEERS.
RED ROVER.
LAST OF THE MOHICANS.
THE SPY.
WEPT OF WISH-TON-WISH.
THE RED SKINS.

THE PILOT.
THE PRAIRIE.
WYANDOTTE.
THE DEERSLAYER.
THE PATHFINDER.
THE CRATER.

THE WATER WITCH.

THE HEIDENMAUER,
THE HEADSVAN.
THE MONIKINS.

MILES WALLING FORD.
THE CHAINBEARER.

OAK OPENINGS.

It is intended that this edition of Cooper's Novels shall excel in elegance, artistic beauty, and mechanical perfection, any publication heretofore issued in this country. The publishers bave labored assiduously to render it, in every department, worthy of the reputation of the author, and acceptable to the American public.
