N.

[ocr errors][ocr errors]

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.
