FENIMORE COOPER, issued with great elegance, and illustrated on steel and wood from drawings by F. 0. C. DARLEY.

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 :
