It is only of late years that archeologists have understood that Art is exhibited, not only in architecture, statuary, and monumental painting, but that ecclesiastical utensils, arms, jewels, furniture, and even objects of common use, all equally bear testimony to the artistic talent of ancient times, and afford as irrefragable evidence of the character of the epoch in which they were made.

It is of Art-as applied to the objects of domestic life— that this volume treats. It was originally written as an introduction to a descriptive catalogue of the DebrugeDumenil Collection, of which M. Jules Labarte, its accomplished author, was coinheritor. It gives a complete history of the origin and development of the decorative arts during the Mediæval and Renaissance periods; and, as we have no work in English on the same subject, and the French catalogue has been long out of print, it has been thought that a translation, divested of the references to that well-known Collection, would be of interest and use.

The work of M. Labarte deserves on every account to be

known and circulated. Its value is already fully acknowledged by French antiquaries and artists. As M. Didron observes, "C'est une véritable histoire de l'art par les objets mobiliers, dont M. de Labarte vient d'enrichir la science archéologique. Il y a peu de livres où plus de faits certains et intéressants abondent que dans celui-ci ;" and M. de Laborde most truly says, "L'ouvrage de M. Labarte est dans toutes les mains; il serait inutile d'en faire l'éloge; il est dans toutes les bouches."

The translator has to express her grateful acknowledgments to M. Labarte for the use of the wood-cuts belonging to his work, and also to Lord Londesborough, the Executors of the late Mr. Bernal, to Mr. Franks, and Mr. Apsley Pellatt, for a liberality, to which she is indebted for many of her most interesting illustrations.
