NEWLY INVENTED

CRETA LEVIS, OR PERMANENT DRAWING CHALKS,

IN CEDAR, IJf EVEBY VARIETY OF COLOUR,
23, CHURCH-STREET, SPIT ALFI ELDS, LONDON.

E. 'wolff and Son beg to state that they have, by the introduction of great improvements in their Creta L.svis, enabled it to be used the same as the ordinary pencils; and effects can now be produced equal to Water Colour Drawings, without the use of water or any other fluid, the various colours blending together with perfect harmony, beauty, and richness. It can be cut to a fine point, and is thus capable of giving a very delicate outline.

For Sketching from nature, the great advantages resulting from the adoption of the Creta L.evis must be obvious, as, without the use of water, palette, brushes, &c, all tho various tints can bo obtained with a truthfulness that cannot be surpassed, and by their compact form may be carried any distance without the slightest inconvenience ; thus superseding every other method in general use.

The drawings may be carried in a portfolio with safety, as, unlike other Crayons, they will neither rub off nor sutler injury by coming in contact with the usuual contents of a portfolio.

The Creta L.evis, unlike the indelible or wax Crayons, willnot be affected by heat or change of climate.

Wolff & Son's Improved Crayon Paper is the best for the Creta L_evis.

To be hod of all Artists' Colourmen and respectable Stationers, in leather boxes, containing sets of 12,18, 24, 36, 48 assorted colours. A pattern card containing tho whole of the shades and colours, with their names and numbers attached to each shade, price 1». each. Caution.—As there arc several spurious imitations, it is necessary to observe that every pencil is stamped "Creta Lj Vis, E. Wolff Ani> Hon, Ik>ndon," with the name of the colour. Creta Loevis Drawings lent to copy. {See Specimens at the Great Exhibition, HijJe Park, Clou 30.)

They have attained to so great a perfection in the manufacture of this Lead, as to be able at all times to make the same strength and colour when once found to be suitable foraiiy particular purpose, and have produced a pencil fully equal to those used in former years, when they were made of the finest Cumberland lead, which at the present time cannot be obtained from the mines sufficiently pure for the best pencils. The following are the degrees:—H, Hll, HUH, HHIliJ, F, FF, I1B, EI1B, B, BB, BBB, BBBB, W.* * This pencil is particularly recommended for writing and cuonting-house use.
