“The Gentleman’s Magazine has been revived with a degree of spirit and talent which promises the best assurance of its former popularity.”—­Taunton Courier.

“A better or more valuable work for country book societies, lending libraries, and reading rooms, it is impossible to find within the whole compass of English literature.  Its literary articles are peculiarly sound in principle, and its criticisms liberal but just; whilst its Obituary confers upon it a national importance.  We are sure then we cannot do a better service to our friends, and more especially to those connected with institutions like those we have adverted to, than in recommending this work to their support.”—­Nottingham Review.

BUILDING FOR THE EXHIBITION OF INDUSTRY OF ALL NATIONS, 1851.

THE ATHENAEUM

Of Saturday, August 31st, contains a perspective view of Mr. Paxton’s design for the building as finally approved by Her Majesty’s Commissioners, and now in course of erection in Hyde Park.  The Athenaeum of Saturday, the 7th of September, will contain a view of the south front, a view of the east front, a portion on an enlarged scale, and a ground plan.

Several journals having published views of a building which it was supposed would be the building erected, the publisher of The Athenaeum considers it proper to state that the views announced above have never been seen by the public, and are totally dissimilar to those engraved in the professional journals.
