"No attempt has been hitherto made to collect the scattered Likenesses of a succession of Men whose words were sparks of immortality, and to reproduce them in a form worthy of them and of the age. It is the object of the present publication to supply this deficiency in the history of British Genius, and to offer to the Public a National Work of equal Interest and Excellence."-PROs


With these views the Work was undertaken by its spirited Proprietor, and completed at a cost of little less than Ten Thousand Pounds. It comprises a Series of Portraits of the Eminent British Poets, from Chaucer to Cowper, amounting to One Hundred and Thirty Eight, from the most authentic Originals in the Kingdom. The Collections at Stow, Nuneham, Knowle, Strawberry Hill, Althorpe, Blenheim, and the Oxford and Cambridge Universities, &c. were liberally thrown open for the purpose, and many of the Portraits were for the first time engraved in the present Collection. Messrs. Thurston, Clint, and Uwins were employed to make the Drawings, from which the Plates were beautifully engraved, in the Line Manner, by the most eminent Engravers, viz. Armstrong, Bromley, Duncan, Edwards, Engleheart, Finden, Fittler, Newton, Pye, Raddon, Rhodes, Rivers, Robinson, Rolls, Romney, Smith, Charles and Ambrose Warren, Wedgwood, and Worthington. The Scries was completed in Twenty-three Parts, each Part containing Six Plates; and the united talents of the above Artists have produced a Work that can compete, with respect to execution and authenticity, with any Series of Portraits ever produced; and certainly, in point of interest, superior to all. The high price, necessarily occasioned by the superior excellence with which these Portraits were engraved, has hitherto precluded them from the general circulation which it is trusted they will now experience; as the sudden death of Mr. W. WALKER, the late enterprising projector of the Work, has occasioned its transfer to the Publisher of this Catalogue, who is enabled to offer them to the Public at the following greatly reduced prices:—
