STRANGE, continued :

£ s. d. the first separate issue, some mounted ; half red morocco, gilt edges

[1750-90] 18 00 The most famous works of the great masters are here represented, as Sir Robert Strange's taste caused him to select the finest examples, principally from the

works of the Italian school, as may be seen by the following summary :

Guido, 13 pictures ; Raphael, 4; Guercino, 4; Titian, 4; Correg. gio, 2; Salvator Rosa, 2; Carlo Maratti, 2; Pietro di Cortona, 2. The Flemish Painters are also represented in the magnificent portraits of Vandyke, 5 pictures, and examples of Wouvermans and Vanloo.

This is without question one of the most magnificent series of engravings ever produced in England. For their beauty in the department of line engraving they are unrivalled.

TURNER, continued :

£ 8. d. 54, 67, are of the fourth. Thus there are 27 plates in first impressions, 18 in second, 20 in third, and 6 in fourth impressions.

THERE IS A FURTHER ADDITION OF GREAT IMPORTANCE, NAMELY A DUPLICATE OF PLATE 70 IN A PROOF STATE ANTERIOR TO THE FIRST PUBLISHED ISSUE, of which the most striking peculiarity is the different treatment of the cbaudelier, which has seven small distinct lights instead of a broad single flare as in the regular plates; and the complete absence of the inscription “Fear God and Honour the King." This plate bears an inscription in pencil by Turner himself“ Drawn, Etched, and Engraved by J. M. W. Turner, Å.A.” Of this plate there is probably only one

other copy in existence. 4276

“The collection of Egyptian Antiquities formed by the Rev. William MacGregor, holds a high position in the estimation of students of the art of the past It has acquired its reputation both for its general excellence and for including among its treasures certain well-known objects of exceptional importance. Various classes of Egyptian art are represented in the museum of Bolehall Manor House, the predominating interest, however, resting with its display of the ceranic art. The examples in this department permit the opportunity of taking a comprehensive survey of the progress of the art of the Egyptian potter from an early period up to that of its latest developinent,

such as is scarcely to be found elsewhere.". - Preface.

Those which have been found since then have been brought to Europe separately, excepting in one instance; it has happened,

therefore, that their illustration has been in no regular sequence."-Author.
