THE current handbook has arisen from unintended situations. on the sale of the overdue Mr. BernaPs notable assortment, the varied and dear woodcuts which adorned the public sale Catalogue, turned mine for a trifling trifle. Upon this it happened to me, that an illustrated quantity, comprising the total Catalogue, with the costs, and the shoppers' or fairly current possessors' names, and such incidental comments and additions as may possibly recommend themselves, will be an appropriate carrier to amateurs and creditors ;—and these whom I consulted inspiration a similar. I for this reason took quick measures for reaching this item, yet different and extra urgent avocations so always engrossed such a lot of my disposable time, that its finishing touch has been unfortunately retarded.
In the period in-between I were invited by means of the Rev. Harry Dupuis of Richmond, in universal with some of the neighbouring gentry, to participate in a projected Exhibition of artworks and technology, attached with a sequence of schooling lectures, —a flow within the direction of social growth so consonant to my very own perspectives and emotions, that I joined in it so much cordially. The Exhibition, which was once held in a truly huge and lofty school-room, provided a wealthy collection of items of vertu
and ordinary heritage, and mirrored nice credits upon the style, undefined, and perseverance of the different gents who accumulated and gratuitously carried out it.
My contributions have been mostly Porcelain, Enamels, and Glass, of which i've got lengthy had a small yet particularly reasonable assortment. Others contributed photographs, Carvings, Sculpture, Indian Antiquities, Goldsmiths' paintings, Minerals, Geological Specimens, bugs, crammed Birds—indeed no matter what was once prone to amuse or instruct.
The Lectures have been dependent upon the gadgets exhibited.—Professor Owen illustrated Paleontology and Zoology; Mr. Ra-venshaw, Mineralogy; Mr. Wm. Chapman, old pictures; others gave experiments in Chemistry, electrical energy, Hydraulics, and images; and that i made my debut on Pottery and Porcelain. A request to copy my Lecture led me to arrange it with elevated recognition, and that i now current it to the general public in its amended shape, as a handy advent to the current volume.
The few extra notes interspersed in the course of the Catalogue, a few inside of brackets denoting the painters on porcelain, are both on my own, Mr. Thomas Woods, the clever assistant of Messrs. Christie and Manson, or Mr. Burn, who has learn the sheets with me in the course of the press.
THE APPENDIX or MONOGBAMS, which I deem the good function of the quantity, will, i'm hoping, be chanced on as priceless and entire as something of the sort but produced. within the category Majolica the checklist could have been a lot enlarged ; yet with out extra confident details than we but have respecting many unlocatcd marks, the collector could have derived very little virtue. many of the best and most precious specimens don't have any marks in any respect, whereas a few that will rank good accord-
ing to the mark, are of little price. A Xanto plate, marked and dated, may perhaps range in price from 5 to 100 guineas, whereas an unmarked plate, approximately which there's now not the least confident info, might be worthy much more than the bigger sum.
In developing this Appendix i've been in most cases indebted to the dear works of Messrs. Brongniart and Riocreux, specially their well suited quantity, the " Musee Ceramique," from which i've got copied the entire monograms, with scarcely any edition. i'm additionally indebted to that excellent and well-executed paintings " Les Arts au Moyen Age ; par Du Som-merard" which each and every lover of the effective arts, which can come up with the money for it, may still procure. The brochure of Passeri, on Majolica, as edited by way of Mons. Delange, has afforded me many extra marks, and a few invaluable info. Labarte's " Arts of the center Ages;" Mr. Robinson's Descriptive Catalogue of the Soulages assortment; the Catalogues of the Museum of sensible Geology, through Sir Henry de l. a. Beche
