LIFE OF MAN Symbolised by the Months of the Pear,

IN

THEIR SEASONS AND PHASES,

WITH PASSAGES SELECTED FROM ANCIENT AND MODERN AUTHORS.

BY RICHARD PIGOT.

TAIL-PIECES, ENGRAVED ON WOOD FROM ORIGINAL DESIGNS

BY JOHN LEIGHTON, F.S.A.

THIS
THIS Volume will consist of Twelve Sections, into which the Life

Man is divided, to accord with the twelve Months of the Year, and the progress of nature, from the germination of the seed to the decay of the tree.

The progressive developments of the physical and moral attributes of Man are shown in each Month concurrently with the growth of the Year; and the varying phases of his Passions, Pursuits, and Aspirations are exhibited in excerpt passages from Ancient and Modern Writers. These are cited in the typographical characters of their respective periods, appropriately and suggestively illustrated by many hundreds of marginal devices, initial vignettes, and tail-pieces.

Each page of the book will be enclosed in a framework, which serves as a setting for proverbs and other aphorismatic sentences, in harmony with the text. Each Section will be preceded by two full-page Engravings, of which, including the General Frontispiece, there will be Twenty-five, printed within red rules. Twelve of them, illustrating the Life of Man from the Cradle to the Grave, also embody the Progress of the Seasons, and the varying Aspects of Nature, as seen under an English sky. The other Twelve comprise a Series of Medallion Portraits, from the Infant to the Patriarch, combined with Floral Emblems and other Symbolical Attributes, in keeping with the central subject.

FROM THE 'SATURDAY REVIEW.' • A volume which is second in point of art to no contemporary publication. .... It is a book which will always be a treasure to bibliographers, and which wil be reckoned in future generations as one of the choicest typographical monuments of this age'

FROM THE TIMES.' • This edition of the New Testament is the finest thing that has ever been done in wood engraving; and no volume of equal artistic merit has for many years published in this country. It is a great work, which will hereafter be often cited as one of the master-pieces of the printing-press. .... It is difficult at first sight to believe that the entratings which embellish this magnificent work are on wood, the touches are so delicate and the effects so identical with those which it has hitherto been thought possible to produce only a steel. .... To appreciate the thorough honesty of the work in every page it should be seen through a magnifying giass.'

FROM THE GUARDIAN.' • As a specimen of English workmanship in the arts of wood-engraring and printing-arts which have ever called for and rewarded the application of inventou. taste, and skill, as much as those which especially claim to be the fine arts—it will take razi as one of the most remarkable examples of the perfection to which they have been brought.. Printing and engiavings alike show the same combination of strength, evenness, and complete ness of finish. All the parts correspond. There is no contrast between high and origas

! design in one department of the work and coarse and uneven execution in another. Every where there is the same care, the same conscientiousness, the mastery over work and the result is a book which hardly has its like goodness, variety, and perfection of adornment, among the productions of the English press.'
