BIBLIOGRAPHY. 190 LECTURES on Dramatic Art and Literature.

By AugustUS WILLIAM SCHLEGEL, translated from the
German by John BLACK, Esq., Editor of the Morning
Chronicle,' 2 vols. foolscap 8vo. Second Edition, cloth,

“ The present work contains a critical and historical account of the ancient and modern drama--the Greek, Latin, Italian, German, Spanish, and English. The view which the author has taken of the standard productions, whether tragic or comic, is ingenious and just, and his reasonings on the principles of taste are as satisfactory as they are profound. The acute and sensible remarks-the high tone of moralityare very admirable and exemplary; and we refer those who desire 10 elevate their understandings to a guide so learned and philosophical as the author of these volumes." - Edinb. Rev.

“In a few pages we reap the fruit of the labour of a whole life. Every opinion formed by the author, every epithet given to the writers of whom he speaks, is beautiful and just, concise and animated.”

Mad. de Stael's Germany. “A work of extraordinary merit.”—Quarterly Review, Vol. XII. pp. 112-46.

210 LOVE LETTERS of Mrs. Piozzi, written when she was

Eighty, to the handsome Actor, William Augustus Conway, aged Twenty-seven, 8vo. sewed, 28

written at three, four, and five o'clock (in the morning) by an Octogenary pen, a heart (as Mrs. Lee says) twenty-six years old, and as H. L P. feels it to be, all your own." - Letter V.3d Feb. 1820.

This is one of the most extraordinary collections of love epistles we have ever chanced to meet with, and the well known literary reputation of the lady-the Mrs. Thrale, of Dr. Johnson and Miss Burney celebrity--consid-rably enhances their interest. The letters themselves it is not easy to characterize ; nor shall we venture to decide whether they more bespeak the drivelling of dotage or the folly of love; in either case they present human nature to us under a new aspect, and furnish one of those riddles which nothing yet

dreamt of in our philosophy can satisfactorily solve."--Polytechnic Rev. 211 COLLECTION of Letters on Scientific Subjects, illustrative
