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."

EXTRACTS FROM NOTICES BY THE PRESS.
"There never was an author who required less note or comment than Shakespeare, and who could so completely satisfy the wisest of men, while not rising beyond the comprehension of the most dull."—Times, Sept. 99th, 1863.
2 Standard and Popular Books Published by
"Messrs. Bickers and Son bave done a service to those good souls who lore to read Shakespeare, but shrink from the quarrels and personalities of his commentators, by printing Mr. and Mrs. Cowden Clarke's edition of the poet. We have already spoken in high terms of this work. It is an edition without notes, commentaries, or explanations. The text is selected with due care, is handsomely printed on good paper, and the four volumes are strongly bound. The general reader cannot want a better copy of Shakespeare."~-Athena'um.
The great pains which Mr. and Mrs. Cowden Clarke have bestowed upon the study of Shakespeare's dramatic works make them in every way qualified for the task which they have undertaken, and the present edition deserves to be regarded in every respect as a standard one. It is indeed a true ' Tercentenary * edition of the * poet of all time.' "—Observer".
"This edition is well calculated for pleasant popular reading, and to inspire delightful conceptions of the poet's genius in that numerous class who can enjoy ' rapture complete ' without stopping every minute * to ask bow they feel it, or why it is so sweet.' "—Morning Post:
"This edition is entirely without notes—no little recommendation in these days of over-editing. There is, however, a copious Glossary, which is really as much as any intelligent and appreciative reader will require. The time may come when every reader of Shakespeare will be, to a certain extent, his own editor; and the difficulties arising out of the early and original copies almost demand this . . The immense difficulty of making up one's mind upon disputed passages can only be estimated by those who undertake the task of decision."—Bookseller.
"This edition is distinguished by an admirable chronological table of tbe poet's life, by an index, verbal ana sentential glossary (the fullest we have ever seen), by the reprint of Shakespeare's will, and of the dedication and addresses prefixed to the folio of 1623. The text is carefully revised, and the publishers have enshrined it in clear and beautiful letterpress. We heartily recommend this rare Tercentenary ottering."—Dundee Advertiser•
The Girlhood of Shakespeare's Heroines, in a Series of Fifteen Tales, by Mary Cowden Clarke. 3 vols, square crown 8vo, cloth elegant, gilt leaves, 10s. td. (published at iSs.)
The design has been to trace the probable antecedents in the history of some of Shakespeare's women; to imagine the possible circumstances and influence of scene, event, and associate, surrounding the infant life of his heroines, which might have conduced to originate and foster those gennu of character recognised in their maturity, as by him developed; to conjecture what might nave been the first imperfect dawnings of thai which he has shown us in the meridian blaze of perfection; and it was believed that such a design would combine much matter of interesting; speculation, afford scope for pleasant fancy, and be productive of entertainment in the various narratives."—Extract from Preface.
