Four Volumes of the JOURNAL OF DESIGN AND MANUFACTURES are completed, price 7s. 6d. each, bound. During their progress, the effect and soundness of the principles advocated in them have been signally shown in the extension of Copyright of Design, in the amendment of the Schools of Design, in the general improvement of Decorative Manufactures; but, above all, in the success of the Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of all Nations, which the JOURNAL OF DESIGN AND MANUFACTURES consistently supported as a theory, long before it became a great fact.

THE JOURNAL OF DESIGN AND MANUFACTURES is the only publication in Europe which inserts in its pages SPECIMENS OF ACTUAL FABRICS.

DURING THE EXHIBITION the Journal of Design and Manufactures will insert SPECIMENS of the finest woven fabrics, &c., exhibited.
