summer, and these into the reds and russets of
autumn. Figures carry out the idea of the
seasons, a shepherd lad piping to his sheep, a

reproductions of Napoleon Bonaparte by Denon,
George Canning, by Gainsborough, Percy Bysshe

which the Italian peninsula has produced. The
illustrations are excellent, and include a great
number of reproductions of works of art which
