"From Messrs. Field & Tuer we have received some interesting specimens, in red and brown, from the original copper-plates engraved by Bartolozzi. Some of the 'Cupids' are perfect gems. The variety is extensive, and well worth the attention of collectors. The beautiful examples, mostly of a fanciful character, are direct impressions from plates—all in fine condition—that have been gradually accumulated by a well-known collector during the past twenty years. Although engraved nearly a century ago some of the copper-plates have never before been published, and are therefore in proof condition. These engravings are not to be confounded with the faded reprints from worn-out plates which for years past have disgusted the collector."— Whitehall Review.
"With Bad Paper, one's best is impossible."
The Author's Paper Pad (Issued by the Proprietors of The Leadenhall Press). Contains, in block form, fifty sheets of paper, fibrous and difficult to tear as a piece of linen, over which—being of unusual but not painful smoothness—the pen slips with perfect freedom. Easily detachable, the size of the sheets is about 7 1/2 x 8 3/4 in., and the price is only that usually charged for common scribbling paper. THE AUTHOR'S PAPER PAD may be comfortably used, whether at the desk, held in the hand, or resting on the knee. As being most convenient for both author and compositor, the paper is ruled the narrow way, and of course on one side only.—Sixpence each, 5/- per dozen, ruled or plain.
