DIRECTIONS FOR BINDING.
[The Court Magazine is now divided into four parts, each part following on successively when the half-year is completed :-viz., Original Tales and Poetry. 2. Reviews, Miscellaneous Notices, Births, Marriages and Deaths, Obituaries, &c. 3. The Memoirs with descriptions of Portraits for separate binding, or in the Volume itself. 4. The Paris Fashions, Le Follet and French Letter-press. ]
N. B.-In order to obviate apparent difficulties arising from the non-publication of the Memoirs and descriptions of the Portraits simultaneously with the Portraits ; a paper will be printed, to be placed in the volume with the respective Portrait shewing in what subsequen number the memoir and description of the Portrait have appeared.
When the memoir of Anne of Denmark (see June, 1842) was commenced, there was no intention of giving the Portrait of King James ; the posture of affairs lately in Scotland, having awakened a new interest, the Portrait and Memoir of King James have since been published, and the binder will please cancel those two pages of the memoir of Queen Anne of Denmark.
The binder will consult his employer as to some of the Directions, whilst others he will be
pleased strictly to follow, and thereby save himself much trouble. This volume (for the half-year from December 1, 1842, to June, 1843), is to commence with the Emblematical Title-Page, which is in the number for June, 1843.
A new plan having deen adopted in printing the Memoirs and descriptions of the Portraits, upon the request of several Subscribers, which plan was commenced June 1, 1842, such of our Subscribers who may think proper to follow the same, will direct their binders to detach the Memoirs, so as to form a volume, to be entitled,
MEMOIRS (WITH AUTHENTIC PORTRAITS)
KINGS AND QUEENS OF ENGLAND
CELEBRATED PERSONAGES (CHIEFLY WOMEN).. Others, however, who prefer having the whole of the matter as usual in the respective volume have only to direct the Memoirs to be placed together.
