ILLUSTRATIONS.

THE illustrations in these volumes have been introduced with the object of representing, as far as possible, the world as seen by Shelley in the earlier part of the 19th century.

With this object in view the compiler has grouped together pictures of the more important places and buildings which, in the usual course, the poet would have seen when visiting the various cities referred to by his biographer.

In addition to the Landscapes, engraved from the original drawings of Turner, Stanfield, Westall, Copley Fielding, and others, portraits of a few of the more important persons mentioned in the present memoir have also been inserted; while, further to enhance the interest-value of many of the illustrations, an appendix has been added to each volume, containing Shelley's own descriptions of his sojournings in Switzerland and Italy.
