llustrated by W. LUKER, jun., from Original Drawings carefully finished on the spot and engraved in Paris,

£2 5s.

Since the publication of Faulkner's work in 1820, no history of Kensington pretending to accuracy or completeness has been produced. This sumptuous work contains full and descriptive accounts of the parish of Kensington and the adjoining Palace and Gardens, with the changes and improvements of the past half century or more ; notices of Kensing. ton celebrities and of the great national institutions which have sprung up at Kensington Gore and Brompton Park; and a fund of discursive matter of local and historical interest. In regard to the very numerous and absolutely faithful illustrations, two years have been spent by the artist in making for this work original drawings of old and modern Kensington. They include artistic exteriors and interiors; glimpses of Kensington Gardens ; the Palace in which the Queen was born; the park ; the people, streets, houses, churches, and ruins ; and pretty, quaint, and taking “bits ” of Kensington scenery. All the drawings have been engraved in Paris in the finest possible manner, and the paper on which they are printed has been specially manufactured of a quality to ensure the delicacy of the originals being fully retained.

For the curious, a few PROOF copies of 'KENSINGTON: Picturesque and Historical,' at Five Guineas, bound in full morocco, have painted in water colours on the front, under the gilt edges of the leaves, a couple of Kensington views, which, until the leaves are bent back at an angle, are invisible.

London : FIELD & TUER, The Leadenhall Press, E.C.

* "Mr. Loftie's new book, 'Kensington: Picturesque and Historical,' is to have a novel binding. Beyond the title in gold, the round bevel-edged cloth-covered boards are to be devoid of ornament except on the inner edge, which will have a 'roll' in gold of the same character that a good binder puts on morocco and russia."-Athenæum.
