JAPAN

An Illusfrafed Journal of Arts and Industries.

VOL. I.
Conducted by S. BING.

Besides Illustrated Text, the Volume contains SIXTY ROYAL QUARTO COLOURED PLATES, Being Reproductions of Work by the best Japanese

Artists. Cloth, price 158.

The Text is written by several of the best English Authorities on Japanese Art, including

Dr. WILLIAM ANDERSON, Mr. HUISH, Editor of the ART JOURNAL, &c. Parts I. to VI., issued in most attractive Coloured Wrappers,

price 2s. 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 letterprese, which is 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 tbings, but an instructive guide to the noble art product with which it deals.'

MANCHESTER EXAMIXER. "The plates are good and useful, the blocks in the text are commendable, and the price is reasonable.'-QUEEN.

Prospectus of Parts post-free on application to the Publishers.

IN THE BEST STYLE OF MODERN CITROMO-LITHO. ART, FRON DRAWINGS COLOURED TO NATURE.

BY MRS, CHAS. HETLEY.

Dedicated by permission to Her Majesty the Queen.

THE
THE Publishers are glad to announce the completion of this beautiful work, which is now being

published in one very handsome volume, cloth, bevelled boards, gilt edges, with an artistic design in colours. The volume contains 36 large plates, with descriptive text &c., illustrating the indigenous flowers of New Zealand, which are of great variety and beauty and so little known. This volume can be well recommended as a most attractive presentation book. Price

£3, 13s. 6d. "At present we limit ourselves to bearing witness to the great beauty of the flowers reproduced in the first part. The execution leaves little to be desirel; and the plates bring home to us, as never before, the gorgeousness of the New Zealand flora. ... Mrs. Hetley's work is, by special permission, dedicated to Her Majesty, whose subjects will, we are sure, endorse the approval of so appreciative a lover of both Nature and Art.' -ILLUSTRATED LONDOX News.

*All flower-lovers will find much to interest them in studies of blossom and leaf, frond and foliage, from beyond the seas.'--DAILY TELEGRAPH.

"A remarkably handsome work. ... The plates are perfect facsimiles of accurate and beautiful water-colour drawings. The delineations are absolutely lifelike and perfect, and do not seem capable of improvement. To lovers of rare and choice flower- and to botanists the selection will be a source of enduring gratification.'--THE QUEEN.

Whether as regards works of art, or as specimens of the flora of New Zealand, it would be dificult to commend these graceful and artistic studies too highly. --THE MORNING Post.

ENLARGEMENT OF “HOME WORDS.'

Edited by the Rev. CHARLES BULLOCK, B.D., formerly Rector of St. Nicholas, Worcester.

NEW TALE BY AGNES GIBERNE
LEAST SAID SOONEST MENDED.'

TESTIMONIES TO HOME WORDS.' The LORD BISHOP OF RIPON says :—It is superfluous for me to say anything in praise of Home Words. Large as its circulation is, I wish that it was doubled.'

The LORD BISHOP OF ROCHESTER.-- The wider its circulation, the greater will be the gain to the public.' The RIGHT REV. BISHOP RYAN.- In my parish it is greatly valued.'

The ARCHBISHOP OF YORK says:-*Your way is the right one. We shall not drive out bad literature by condemning it, but by giving something better, which the readers may learn to enjoy more.'

From the late LORD BISHOP OF DURHAM.--My opinion of the real value of Home Words is best proved by my employing a person to take round and sell the numbers every month in this town.'

The LORD BISHOP OF HEREFORD.-Wherever I have an opportunity, you may depend upon my saying a good word for Home Words and Hand and Heart.' From the late REV, W. PENNEFATHER.- Home Words that will do the heart good and make the hearth bright.'

The Illustrations are by the First Artists of the day.

ANNUALS FOR 1888. Edited by the Rev. CHARLES BULLOCK, B.D., Author of The Queen's Resolve,'• The Royal Year,' &c. No Books can possibly be so cheap as Magazine Annuals, and they are especially adapted for HOME GIFTS and PARISH LIBRARIES.

New Volume, 7s. Bd. PICTORIAL MAGAZINE. Five-and-twenty years ago the Fireside Magazine made its first appearance on the literary stage, its rôle being to supply "articles on common home subjects written with a decidedly Christian tone," and nobly has it sustnined the part. The high-class illustrations add greatly to its attractions; the three serials, by such well-known writers as Emma Marshall, Agnes Giberne, and the Rev. T. Millington, will appeal to the lovers of pure fiction; while it will be strange indeed if, amid the varied store of solid matter, articles cannot be found to interest readers of every age and taste. Biography, travels, poetry, anecdotes, sermons, essays on matters religious and secular, and theoretical, all find their place in the pages of the Fireside Pictorial Magazine.'--ROCK.

Harper's Young People is more popular in price and less luxuriant in get-up, but it contains more matter, and is so admirably edited and written that it can hold its own against all rivals...... The clever and laughable humorous woodcuts are a special feature, and so is the “ Post Office," which enables young readers in all parts of the world to exchange confidences with each other.'-MANCHESTER EXAMINER.
