THE TOWER MENAGERIE;
CONTAINING Portraits of all the Principal Beasts, Birds, and Reptiles, that are contained in that Establishment; drawn from the Life by WILLIAM HARVEY, and engraved on Wood by BRANSTON and WRIGHT; the Literary Department by E. T. Bennett, Esq. F. L. S. Beside the Portraits of the Animals, upwards of FIFTY VIGNETTEs, by the same Artists, are introduced, illustrative of the Habits of the Animals in their Natural State.

CRITICAL REMARKS. “ This is, beyond comparison, one of the most exquisite specimens of typography we have ever seen; and we have therefore felt ourselves bound (although somewhat unusual so to do) to introduce the name of the printer with those of the artists to whom we are indebted for the work. We might also, with as much justice, refer to that of the binder—the whole edition being bound in the same style--as having united elegance and durability in the bappiest manner. Thus the book attracts at first sight. It will be utterly impossible for any person of taste to pass it without notice, to examine it without pleasure, or, we may add, to peruse it without instruction and delight. Externally and internally, it is a most engaging volume; and we bope it will meet with such success as to induce Messrs. Branston and Wright, two of our most eminent engravers on wood, to follow it up by others of the same class. They would, unquestionably, find it answer their purpose to publish a natural history on the most extensive scale. Each division of the subject might appear annually; and a work of bigb interest and national importance might thus in time be formed. The Zoological Society would also yield abundant materiel; and if issued to the public in parts, the additions which may be from time to time made to tbe collection might be introduced. But our present business is with the Tower Menagerie, dedicated, by permission, to the King, and containing about seventy portraits of animals, with as many tail pieces. The wood cuts are of the most exquisite character; indeed, we had scarcely conceived it possible to produce such effects from such materials. In our opinion, they possess greater merit than those which, some twenty years ago, raised the name of Bewick to so bigh a rank among the artists of his country. This is no trilling praise, but we give it under the firm impression that it is fully deserved. The literary department has been superintended by E. T. Bennett, Esq. F.L.S.; and it is but justice to say, that be bas performed his task in a very able manner-giving as much information as bis limited space permitted, in the most interesting and amusing form. Mr. Harvey is well known as a most tasteful and skilful designer on wood; indeed, in this department of art he stands witbout a rival, and is not likely soon to be excelled. It is out of our power to copy one of the portraits; and we will not, therefore, extract the printed description. We trust that many of our readers will examine the volume for themselves; and we shall be greatly surprised if any should complain of having been misled by the strong recommendation we have thus given it."-Spirit and Manners of the Age.
“ This beautiful work is another evidence, and a powerful one, of the increasing taste for scientific pursuits. Natural History is now becoming daily a more general subject of education and rational amusement; and most of the schools of medicine and surgery, where formerly the anatomy and physiology of the human body was the only zoological theme, have now their established lectures and professors of Comparative Anatomy, and their museums are rapidly filling with specimens in elucidation of this branch of the widely-spreading tree of knowledge.
“The labours of such men as Hunter, Sir J. Banks, Buffon, Pennant, &c. have been energetically followed up by a bost of successors, amongst whom to particularize individuals would be invidious: so universally extended seems the spirit of industry and research. The Lippæan Society, whose Transactions bear witness to the truth of these assertions, is becoming the prolific parent of associations emulous of the fame and exertions of the source from whence they have emanated; and the Zoological now stands proudly forth, and deservedly asserts its claim to universal admiration.
“ Its Journal, which is published quarterly, is one of the best conducted works of science that issues from the press; and the Society's Collections, both of living and preserved specimens, increase rapidly.
“For the more general reader has been establisbed a bimestrial • Magazine of Natural History,' in which are collected many useful facts and observations.
“ Under such relative position, then, does the Work we have now to notice come forward; and if clearness of detail or beauty of embellishments can ensure it a favourable reception, its success must at once gratify its conductor's most ardent hopes. Nor is the accuracy less than the beauty of the engravings with which this catalogue is illustrated. It contains portraits of nearly sixty individuals, inhabitants of the Tower, and truly prisoners of state.' Of these, the feline species are the most remarkable, both in number and elegance of appearance; and although, in their durance vile,' they have not ordinarily that animated expression which they may be supposed to possess when roaming at large in their native wilds, the artists have, in the instances before us, succeeded in imparting this necessary degree of spirit to their subjects, without injury to the individual portrait-so much so, that in many of them we could, were it necessary, assure the noble sitters that we have immediately recognised their impressive countenances. The birds are beautiful examples of what may be accomplished in wood engravings, and are fit successors to the productions of the late veteran Bewick; wbilst the simiæ, or monkeys, may very fairly be supposed to have stolen away from the guardiansbip of their patron and elucidator, T. Landseer.
“Much general information may be gathered from the description given with each engraving, and which, in the present case, will secure more readers than if invested with more abstruse and classical appearances. Knowledge is often best imparted, as it were, by stealth ; and a single anecdote or note bas frequently conveyed more real and available information than has been retained by the auditors of a protracted lecture, or the readers of a very learned but unenlivened essay. We strongly hope
