A MONTHLY ILLUSTRATED JOURNAL OF ARTS AND INDUSTRIES.

In addition to Illustrated Text the Part contains

TEN ROYAL QUARTO COLOURED PLATES, Being Reproductions of Work by the best Japanese

Artists. Price 2s.

The Collaboration of several of the best English Authorities on Japanese Art, including

Plates in each, can still be obtained.

The new magazine is a sumptuous folio, and the greater part of the contents consists of losse plates, very beautiful and carefully executed specimens of colour printing, representing various examples of the decorative art of a nation of inborn decorators. The letterpress, which is to be contributed by Mr. S. Bing, Mr. Marcus Huish, and other competent authorities, is at once descriptive and expository, and the new venture, for which we hope all success, will be not merely a storehouse of beautiful things, but an instructive guide to the noble art product with which it deals.'
