ILLUSTRATED PUBLICATIONS

ON THE

LIFE OF OUR LORD

THE LIFE OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR

JESUS CHRIST. Illustrated from the Italian Painters of the Fourteenth, Fifteenth, and Sixteenth Centuries; with a Preface and Notes by FRANCIS T. PALGRAVE, Professor of Poetry in the University of Oxford.

Richly bound in cloth boards, bevelled, gilt edges, price 158.

Extracts from Opinions of the Press on the above :The Church Quarterly Revieto says :--This book is a perfect gem. * * * It is. indeed a relief to iurn to such matchless designs as these. It would be impossible to speak too highly of the knowledge of the history of art, the elevation of thought, and the elegance of style which Mr. Palgrave displays.'

The Academy says :- This is a very beautiful book, and the chromo-lithographs with which it is adorned, or rather, which are illustrated by the text, reflect great credit on the care and skill of all concerned in their production.'

The Atheneum says:- By way of preface, a highly intelligent and critical essay on the growth, aims, and developments of religious art in Italy, by Mr. F. T. Palgrave. Each well-weighed and thoughtful sentence is worth reading. The general purport of the book is well represented by the title. Mr. Palgrave vouches for the beauty of the drawings made by Mr. Goodall, from which the chromo-lithographs were taken... A very ambitious effort has been extremely successful.'

The Art Journal says :- A work which should be the most popular, as it must be the handsomest, of Christmas books bearing a religious character. *** Twenty-four wonderful little chromo-lithographs from drawings made on the spot. *** The volume is in every way a beautiful one.'

The Spectator says :--The drawings are executed with much skill; and the chromo. lithographic process is here employed with delicacy and success. Mr. Palgrave's notes are pertinent and instructive. "His Introduction is able and eloquent.'

The Portfolio says :- The eloquent and informing preface, and the critical notes on the pictures, by Mr. F. T. Palgrave, are addressed to an adult and cultured

audience. The literary part of the volume deserves more careful consideration than is usually accorded to letterpress penned to accompany even high-class illustrations."

The Illustrations to the above work are likewise adopted in the following

short volumes, which are specially adapted for Children : The Story of the Childhood of Christ. By R. E. H.

Price 28. 6.

The Story of the Ministry of Christ. By R. E. H.

Price 28. 6d. The Story of the Passion of Christ. By R. E. H.
