Messrs. Bickers & Son have the pleasure to announce that they are now in a position to offer this superb Work of Art at the above extraordinary low prices. In order to give some idea of the genuine value and rarity of this collection of Gems of Art, and of the enormous original cost of its production, it will be well to state here, that the impressions in tho volumes now offered to the connoisseur were taken from the previously unworked original plates, in their choicest and sharpest condition; and that, if the plates were now for the first time engraved expressly for these volumes, not a copy of the work could possibly be offered for less than One Hundred Guineas. Nor can it be said that their genuineness and superiority are at all impaired by the fact that many, if not all, of these gems have appeared in the "Art Journal," since the impressions In that artistic periodical were taken, not from the plates themselves, but from Electrotype copies.
This is a rare opportunity of securing a copy of this truly national work at a REMARKABLE LOW PRICE.

A. Series of Twenty-Four Engravings of Views in
Lancashire and Yorkshire, from Original Paintings by J. M. W. Turner, R.A., and others. With descriptive Letterpress,
Mr. Buskw thus notices some of the above-mentioned series of Turner's Draainas:—
*•I do not know In what district of England Turner first or longest studied, hut the scenery whose influence I can trace most definitely, throughout his works, varied as they are, is that of Lancashire and Yorkshire. Of all his drawings, I think those of the Yorkshire Beries have the most heart in them, the most affectionate, simple, unwearied, serious finishing of truth. There is in them little seeking after effect, but a strong love of place ; little exhibition of the artist's own powers or peculiarities, but intense appreciation of the smallest local minutiee * * * * It is, I believe, to those broad wooded steeps and swells of the Yorkshire downs that we in part owe the singular massiveness that prevails in Turner's mountain drawing, and gives it one of its chief elements of grandeur."
