“ We are the more particular in recounting the nature of the illustrations, because we are desirous of recommending Mr. Paxton's work; and knowing the reluctance of most purchasers of a work to take a new edition, which seems thereby to render their former pufchase useless,—but our author has very properly accommodated these unwil. ling buyers, by publishing a series of his prints, with letter-press descriptions, in a separate form. It is therefore to be hoped that no reader of the original book will be without it."--Edinburgh Review, October, 1827.
