OFFICE for ADVERTISEMENTS, 20, Wellington Street, Strand, London, W.C.

Published by JOHN FRANCIS, 20, Wellington Street, Strand, London, W.C.





Illustrated with Engravings on Wood from Designs of FRA ANGELICO, PIETRO PERUGINO, FRANCESCO FRANCIA, LORENZO DI CREDI, FRA BARTOLOMMEO, TITIAN, RAPHAEL, GAUDENZIO FERRARI, DANIELLE DA VOLTERRA, and others. Quarto. PART I., price ONE SHILLING, on Saturday Next, JULY 1. To be continued. Monthly, and completed in Eighteen Parts, price 18. each.

The First Editions of their "Illustrated New Testament " having for many years been out of print, Messrs. LONGMANS & Co. have determined upon issuing the work in a more popular form. This New Edition will be an exact reproduction of the Original, and will be published and completed in EIGHTEEN MONTHLY PARTS, at One Shilling each, commencing on the First of July.

Previously to the publication of this work, the arts of Printing and Wood Engraving had not been applied to the production of the New Testament in a form representing the perfection of which these arts are capable; and the endeavour to accomplish this object occupied much time and involved a large expenditure.

The large demand which existed for the Large-Paper Edition (price Ten Guineas), published in 1863, and the Second Edition in crown 4to. (price Three Guineas), published in 1864, proved that the work was highly appreciated; and the publishers are led to believe that its re-issue in the present form will be generally welcomed.

The Ornamentation of this work is taken from the Italian School of Art, and the chief Picture subjects are, with two exceptions, from Italian Masters. The numerous Engravings on Wood are from designs of

Each page is decorated with Borders, Ornaments, or Initial Letters, copied from the finest Italian Manuscripts of the Fifteenth and Sixteenth Centuries, and numerous Medallions are introduced in the margins.

*** Specimens of Part I. may now be seen at all Booksellers'.
