41. 49.; folio, with Proofs and Etchings, 61. 68.




Illustrated by a Series of Prints, representing the antient Gateways, Castles, Mansions, Street Scenery, &c.; accompanied by Historical and Descriptive Accounts of eacl Subject, and of the Popular Characteristics of every City.


This Number contains TWELVE ENGRAVINGS, viz. (CITY OF YORK) Walmgate BarPorch of St. Margaret's Church-St. Mary's Abbey Church, Ruins of the West EndDitto, Interior View-Micklegate Bar-Monk Bar-Bootham Bar-Clifford Tower, or

ITY OF LINCOLN: Sally-Port to the Castle -- Keep of the Castle -CITY OF GLOUCESTER : St. Nicholas Church-Old Bridge and Gatehouse.

The First Number of “ PICTURESQUE ANTIQUITIES OF THE ENGLISH CITIES" is submitted to the Public with mingled emotions of anxiety, cheered by the hope of pleasing a large portion of Antiquarians and Artists. The Author is confident that such a publica. tion is calculated to gratify a numerous class of persons; and to effect this he intends to render it cheap in price, and, to the best of his judgment and means, at once pleasiug, original, and interesting. Although this will not be an easy task to accomplish, he is convinced that assiduity, combined with long experience, will surmount many difficulties, and produce results which may seem at first view unattainable.

As supplementary to, and elucidatory of the Series of Picturesque Engravings, from Drawings by Robson, this publication is anuounced. Materials for it have long been preparing, and the Author has only to specify some of these to shew the class of subjects and nature of the work which he has projected.

The CITY OF YORK, for instance, presents many singular features and objects in its architectural remains. Not only the street scenery, but the fortified gates or bars, the dungeon keep, or castle, the embattled walls, with bastion towers, are peculiar, indigenous, and picturesque, and cannot therefore fail of being eminently interesting to the artist, the antiquary, and the historian. All these will be faithfully aud forcibly delineated, whilst the historical and local anecdotes, as well as the architectural peculiarities of each, will afford abundant matter for antiquarian and critical disquisition

The City Or BRISTOL abounds with Picturesque Antiquities, both domestic and ecclesiastical.

The City of Wells has a noble cathedral, a moated and fortified antient palace, a singular gateway, a fine deanery, &c.

Every other City offers its distinctive architectural and natural features, and each in. volves historical and local characteristics, which are not merely interesting to the provincial antiquary, but to most readers of laudable curiosity. The City, both in the olden and in modern times, is unquestionably a place of varied and commanding importance. Either environed with fortifed walls and bastion towers, as York and Chester ; seated on a navigable river, as London; or tranquil stream, as Salisbury, crouching in the peaceful and fertile vale, as Wells ; crowning the craggy, romantic rock, as Durham ; or partly in a dell, and on the steep shelving hill, as Bath, with the noble and venerable cathedral overtopping and dignifying the crowded dwellings of its citizens, it commands attention in the distance, and still more on closer inspection. Its relations and associations are manifold; all tending to give it historical and varied consequence in the annals of our country. Whatever, therefore, tends to inform and improve the mind on such subjects, is laudable exercise for the best talents of the author and the artist; and cannot fail to engage the attention of the well-informed gentleman.

It is proposed to publish this work in Six Portions, or Numbers, each of which will in. clude at least Ten Engravings and Four Woodcuts. Two of the former to be finished in imitation of those in the preceding work, whilst the other eight will be executed in such styles of etching and finishing as may seem best adapted to exemplify the effects and details of the respective subjects. The Author refers to his volumes on Bath Abbey Church, p. 69, and Wells Cathedral, p. 91, to shew the style and manner he proposes to adopt in describing the cities ; added to which, will be brief but apposite accounts of the Pictu. resque Antiquities of eacb.

The Proprietors of the LITERARY SOUVENIR beg leave to announce their intention of publishing the Volume of their work for 1829 in an improved form, without any addition to the price. An anxiety to render the Souvenir worthy of the high character it has hitherto maintained, has led them to meet the very powerful competition which has lately arisen among the Proprietors of annual publications, by auginenting, in an important degree, and at a very considerable increase of expense, the interest of their book. The Plates (which are already completed) are of a larger size than heretofore; and are all, as will be seen by the subjoined list, from the burins of the most eminent Engravers. The subjects (twelve in number) comprise many Paintings of well-known celebrity, by the most distinguished Artists. In this selection, as well as in the Engravings, no expense has been spared to enable the Souvenir to compete advantageously, not jaerely with those works which are published at a similar price, but with others of nearly double the cost-and with such works a comparison is most earnestly invited.

ath assult of unque present


< But I do not merely cite, against alarm or scruples, that bold and wise and safe measure of Lord Grenville : older authorities, and in the Courts of Westminster, are with me. If the House require further authorities upon this point, I can refer them to one of the ablest and most instructive books published of late years, that of Mr. Parkes. a respectable Solicitor in Warwickshire, who, in giving the History of the Court of Chancery, has collected most of the authorities upon the subject of Legal Reform.”_ Mr. Brougham's Speech on the present state of the Law, Feb. 7, 1828.

“ We hail with great satisfaction the attempts which are made by men of talent and information to expose the real nature of a system to which no expressions but those of unqualified reprobation can be justly applied. Among these stands foremost the subject of our present article- The History of the Court of Chancery,' by Mr. Parkes. That part of the work in which the author details the attempts made during the time of the Commonwealth to accomplish the task of Reform, is one of the most interesting and valuable parts of the work. The ungrateful nature of the subject, and the scantiness of the visible result from so much labour, might have deterred a less energetic searcher after the truth; but Mr. Parkes has succeeded admirably in his attempt, and has the credit of being the first person who has thrown a satisfactory light upon a very interesting part of our domestic history. The work is an extremely useful one : it conveys, in an agreeable form, exactly the sort of information which ought to be universally spread, and takes at once a just and a popular view of a subject which interests every one."

The Jurist, No. III. “ Mr. Parkes has submitted the Court of Chancery, as the anatomical demonstrator exposes the human body, to a complete and analytical dissection. The remedial portion of the work is of course, though not historically, substantially, the most important. We cannot extract any portion of this part of the work, but must conclude with recommending it to the consideration of all those interested in the grave and paramount question on which so much light is thrown by Mr. Parkes's elaborate and valuable work."

The London Magazine, New Series, No. 38, Feb. 1828. Literary discussion on the subject of the Court of Chancery, long coufined, with few exceptions, to the daily and periodical press, has at length assumed a more tangible character in various publications of high pretension, and, generally, of unquestioned talent. Among them may be particularised the able and candid Enquiry into the Present State of the Civil Law of England,' by Mr. Miller, and Mr. Parkes's History of the Court of Chancery."" -The Law Magasine, or Quarterly Review of Jurisprudence, No. 1, June 1828.

« Seldom has antiquarian research produced a work of more practical utility than the • History of the Court of Chancery.' The mass of information it contains will do mnch to remove that popular ignorance in which alone sinister interest can hope to perpetuate its existence. The numerous excellent suggestions for the reformation of the Court. partly original, and partly the selections of this industrious labourer from the writings of the many great men whose attention has been attracted to the subject, are without the limits of a single article." -The Monthly Magazine, New Series, June 1828.

« Mr. Parkes deserves great credit for his industry and research. If in a second edi. tion some important omissions in the early history of the Court be supplied, and some of the numerous and long extracts thrown into an appendix, and others altogether sup. pressed, and recourse be had in every instance to the author cited, the class of readers for whom tbe book is evidently intended, will have little to desire on the subject it treats.” -Cooper's Brief Account of the Proceedings in Parliament relative to the Court of Chancery. 8vo. 1828.

" Among the many publications which have lately appeared on the subject of reform in the administration of public justice, this is one of the most able and useful. The author has with great industry and research traced out the more remote and difficult parts of the history of the equitable jurisdiction ; and he displays, besides, so much practical knowledge of the evils which have grown up in the system, that his opinions as to the nature of the remedies which onght now to be applied are entitled to considerable attention. The great merit of Mr. Parkes's book is, that he has made a subject in which the whole community is interested familiar to every person of common capacity. He has exposed with a bold and skilful hand the evils which exist; he has made a very valuable contribution to the legal and constitutional history of the country in a branch which has hitherto been very much neglected. As a book of reference, too, it is of great utility."The Times, May 17, 1828.

" If, to recover the truth, it be most expedient to trace the progress of error, and to start with a new reckoning, this History is most important. It investigates the origin, it tracks the inerease, it demonstrates the magnitude of evil, under which the country labours for its existing equitable jurisdiction. To have dove this, and to have done this well, was no triding task, and if our author had done Lo more, he would have been en. titled to the highest praise. We have to commend the honesty which exposes abuses without respect to party or persons; the industry which, in the exercise of a profession allowing little leisure, has collected a vast store of recondite learning ; the talent which has combined such a mass in a form at once interesting and intelligible to the general reader.”_-The Athenaum, No. 23, April 8, 1828.

" Mr. Parkes is popular in his method of treatment. His pages forcibly suggest to the reader the question - Why did I not hear of this in the History of England ?" - Atlas, March 30, 1*28.
