The first volume is embellished with a set of engravings in outline by Starling, from the famous illustrations published by Boydell. The typography is neat and clear; and the text we assume to be correct, from the name of the editor.'—Spectator.
The volume contains a great number of illustrations, after many of our celebrated artists, executed with fidelity and truth. The whole work gives promise of a most delightful companion to every library where taste and beauty, combined with correctness of typography, form a leading object with the reader.'--Satirist.
Looking on the work as a whole, on the portrait and the thirteen outlines, which really come for nothing, and yet stand for much, we cannot deny that this work is worthy of its source; and we have not a doubt that the public will appreciate the labor, and reward the laborers in this vineyard.'Atlas.
* Mr. Valpy has conferred a great benefit on the public hy this cheap and graceful edition of the works of the world's first wit.' Of the style in which it is got up we cannot speak too warmly. Its mechanical department, such as paper, print, &c., is perfect, and the addition of Boydell's well-known embellishments renders it the most finished work of the sort we have.'-Sun.
* The excellence of the illustrations, and the style of the letter-press, are superior to any edition we have yet seen
