numbers. The failure has, in part, arisen from the difficulty of procuring punctually engravings of a superior kind. To procure hasty scratches, from obscure spoilers of copper, is an easy task; but the artist of acknowledged merit neither will be, nor ought to be, called upon to injure his reputation by putting forth an imperfect work. Still, had the Publisher been able to carry his extensive arrangements into effect, little or no delay would have taken place. Unfortunately, however, for a considerable time past, he has been made incapable of exertion, by suffering at once under a racking disease, and the heaviest domestic affliction. Those who themselves know what it is, to waste days and sleepless nights in agony; those too, who know what it is, to watch trembling over the couch, to witness the gradually sinking strength, and at last to mourn over the grave, of those they tenderly loved; will, he is sure, not feel disposed to censure him for his compelled tardiness in fulfilling his engagements with the public. The plates which are yet wanting will be given early in the next volume; and the Publisher trusts that, in future, nothing will occur to give to the urF chasers of the Magazine a reasonable cause of complaint.
