SCRIPTURE PRINTS

In response to many and oft-repeated demands, the National Society has undertaken a series of Wall Prints for Schools, which, it is hoped, will fill a place unoccupied by the prints from Scripture hitherto provided for children. These prints, which are executed in the best style of chromolithography, are from drawings, based upon the Old Masters, by Mr. J. E. Goodall. It is hoped that works of this high-class character will also be found suitable for home use and for Mission Chapels, as well as for Schools. The following are now ready :

1. The Adoration of the Shepherds.
2. The Flight into Egypt.
3. The Blessing of the Children.
4. Our Lord Walking on the Sea.
5. The Raising of Lazarus.
6. The Entry into Jerusalem.
7. The Crucifixion.
8. The Entombment.

9. The Holy Women at the Sepulchre. Price of each Print, 38.; to Subscribers, 28. 3d. Size of Print, 27 inches by 21 inches; with margin, 35 inches by 29 inches.

The Prints may also be obtained in the following forms, the price in each case being net :

Extracts from Opinions of the Press on the above :The Guardian says :-'A new and important series of wall prints. *** They are decidedly the boldest and, we think, the most successful attempt which has been made to meet a very real and general wanti'

The Monthly Packet says :- Beautiful coloured sacred prints * endeavouring to the utmost to accomplish that difficult matter, the combination of correctness of detail, reverence, instructiveness, and beauty. * * * * So reverent and noble that they ought to teach a great deal insensibly. It is a great thing to have solemn beauty associated with sacred things.'

The Church Times says : -'A distinct improvement on the wretchedly drawn and ill. coloured pictures hitherto supplied for school and mission-room use, and will even bear comparison with some of the Arundel Society's pictures. * *.. These very successful prints are worthy of a place in our churches. We congratulate the Society or its step forward, and hope Churchmen will support what must be a costly work.'

Church Beus says :- A great advance on those which are often seen on the walls of parochial schools. **** Pictures which we cordially commend for use in schools or mission chapels.'
