few such as altars, credences, piscinas, and sedilias, which belong to architectural structure and decoration), is a portion of the work which all must admit to have been foreign to a Glossary of Architectural Terms, and must therefore agree to have been wisely and properly left out.  The work in its present form is, we believe, unequalled in the architectural literature of Europe, for the amount of accurate information which it furnishes, and the beauty of its illustrations; and as such, therefore, does the highest credit both to its editor and to its publisher; if, indeed, the editor and publisher be not identical.

Mr. L.A.  Lewis, of 125.  Fleet Street, has commenced a series of weekly Book Sales, to take place every Friday during the months of October and November, and has arranged that parties sending large or small parcels of books for sale during the one week, may have them sold on the Friday in the week following.

We have received the following Catalogues:—­Bernard Quaritch’s (16.  Castle Street, Leicester Square) Catalogue No. 19. for 1850 of Oriental Literature, Manuscripts, Theology, Classics, &c.; John Miller’s (43.  Chandos Street) Catalogue No. 12. for 1850 of History, Antiquities, Heraldry, &c., and Conchology, Geology, and other popular Sciences.

VOLUME THE FIRST OF NOTES AND QUERIES, with Title-page and very copious Index, is now ready, price 9s. 6d., bound in cloth, and may be had, by order, of all Booksellers and Newsmen.

The Monthly Part for September, being the Fourth of Vol.  II., is also now ready, price 1s.

NOTES AND QUERIES may be procured by the Trade at noon on Friday:  so that our country Subscribers ought to experience no difficulty in receiving it regularly.  Many of the country Booksellers are probably not yet aware of this arrangement, which enables them to receive Copies in their Saturday parcels.

As the Suggestion we threw out in our last week’s Paper of publishing an extra Number for the purpose of clearing off our accumulation of REPLIES, seems to have given general satisfaction, we shall, on Saturday next, issue a Double Number, to be devoted chiefly, if not entirely, to REPLIES.
