Sharpe's Prose Writers.

This Day is published, beautifully printed by Messas. WHITTINGHAM, and by MR. DAVISON, in

Royal 32mo, embellished with PORTRAITS and allegorical ENGRAVINGS (to be continued every Fortnight until completed, in 50 Parts, making 25 Pocket Volumes), Part I. Price 2s. 6d. of

SHARPE'S SELECT EDITION OF THE BRITISH PROSE WRITERS. In offering the present Work to the notice of the Public, it must be sufficiently obvious that its limits cannot comprise the entire productions of the Writers whose names will enrich the collection. The title is chosen from its containing, not a set of abridgments, but that portion of the works of each of our Classic. Authors, with which they have most identified themselves, their feelings and their opinions : and the Design is to give the general reader a series of Cabinet Volames, that may supply, as nearly as our language can, the place in our own libraries which the collection so long esteemed in France, entitled ANA, has occupied in that country. The Ana of our own literature are indeed few in pomber, consisting of only two legitimate collections, SELDENIANA and WALPOLIANA, of which the latter will form our second volume, immediately following his delightful Narrative the REMINISCENCES :' the former will be given in the course of the work, with the Essays, Reflections, Letters, &c. of those British Writers (for instance, Bacon, Boyle, Barns); which appear to be the greatest in merit, and the nearest to apply to the purpose of the publication.

In periodical publications of this description, it has long been an established rule, that each Part or Number should include some engraved Embellishment, a practice alike honourable to the public taste and encouraging to the rising talent of the country :- the didactic nature of the present work not affording materials for historical design, seemed at first to preclude the attempt; PORTRAITS, however, have been suggested, and a series are in forwardness, which will be executed in a new, and, it is presumed, an agreeable manner; one of these will be given alternately with an allegorical Etching, illustrative of the volume, or allusive to the general character of the Author; and, it is hoped, will leave nothing to be wished for in the way of decoration, when, with the favour of the pablic, this select Edition of the British Prose WRITERS shall have attained its completion.
