A JOURNAL OF
ART, LITERATURE, DECORATION, AND THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS, ILLUSTRATED IN COLOUR,
Edited by Mr. Wм. DAY, (senior partner in the late firm of DAY & SON, Lithographers to the Queen and H.R.H. the Prince of Wales.)
PROFUSE ILLUSTRATION IN CHROMOLITHOGRAPHY each week, as follows:1, Facsimiles of fine Modern and Ancient Pictures, alternating.
2. Facsimiles in Colours and Gold of choice objects of Ornamental Art.
3. Facsimiles of Studies in Landscape, Figure, Flower, and Ornamental Painting and Illuminating by eminent Teachers.
Descriptive Lessons by the Professors whose studies in colour are mentioned in the last paragraph; appropriate Explanatory Matter to the other Illustrations; popular Essays and able Reviews.
The following extract from the full Prospectus relates to one department of the Magazine, which alone should enlist the liveliest goodwill and co-operation of all who have families, while the whole scope of the project renders it eminently deserving the support of all persons of education and taste.
"The Accomplishments present a wide field for Chromolithographic Illustration. It is intended during the year to give fifty-two descriptive lessons, with fifty-two coloured models or illustrations, on landscape, figure, flower, and ornamental painting, and illumination. An illustrated lesson on one or other of these subjects will be given every week; each branch, coming round again in its turn about once a month, will be presided over by an eminent professor, and these fifty-two lessons will contain more information than any one could attain in a similar number of lessons for fifty-two guineas,-in addition to which, absolute facsimiles of the professor's studies will remain; and thus a lesson, which given in the ordinary way from master to pupil would there exhaust itself and end, continues in the Journal a life-giving property, to be used ad infinitum by member after member of a family."
TERMS OF SUBSCRIPTION.
The size will be an elegant Quarto; each number will contain SIXTEEN PAGES, in double columns, and THREE FULL-PAGE CHROMOLITHOGRAPHS. Price SIXPENCE to Subscribers.
The YEARLY SUBSCRIPTION will be TWENTY-SIX SHILLINGS; for this will be received Fifty-two Numbers, i.e.-One every Saturday, of the Journal, containing in all 832 pages of text, double columns, and 156 full-page Chromolithographs, of a thoroughly artistic character; i.e.-Fifty-two copies in Colour of Modern and Ancient Pictures, Fifty-two in Colour and Gold of choice Objects of Ornamental Art, and Fifty-two Facsimiles of Studies by eminent Teachers in every walk of Art; which will constitute two magnificent volumes, such as heretofore would be published at Ten Guineas.
To prepaid Subscribers for the whole year, and to no others, will be presented, within four months of the publication of Number I., the most highly-finished Chromolithograph conceivable (such as would sell at Two Guineas each), to the full size and in absolute facsimile, of the Garvah Raphael (size 15 in. by 13 in.), for which the British Nation paid, in 1865, Nine Thousand Guineas.
The Illustrations for such a Journal involve an enormous outlay, and require very considerable time for production. It is absolutely impossible to provide from week to week for a fluctuating or uncertain circulation, and it is therefore necessary, before publishing the first number, to have a Fixed List of Subscribers, and to whom alone the supply of the Journal can be guaranteed.
SUBSCRIBERS WILL ALSO BE RECEIVED FOR THE FIRST FOUR NUMBERS ONLY, for which Two Shillings must be remitted, such Subscribers to have the option of continuing the Magazine for the year after receiving Number I. (which will give sufficient time to prepare the Fifth and succeeding numbers; but to those who may thus conditionally subscribe, the great privilege of "The Garvagh Raphael" will not be accorded.
Applications for full Prospectuses (which alone can give an idea of the great value of this Journal), and all communications for the Editor, as well as all orders for Advertisements, to be addressed to Mr. WILLIAM J. DAY, at the Office of THE CHROMOLITHOGRAPH, 20, Cockspur Street, London, S.W.
