MEMORIAL

OF THE

MARRIAGE OF H.R.H. THE PRINCE OF WALES

AND

H.R.H. THE PRINCESS ALEXANDRA OF DENMARK.

BY W. H. RUSSELL, LL.D.,

LATE SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT OF "THE TIMES."

Illustrated by a Splendid Series of Thirty-nine Chromo-Lithographs from

Water-colour Drawings by ROBERT DUDLEY, Three Views in ChromoLithograph of the Voyage to England, by W. O. BRIERLY, and Twentyfour Wood Engravings.

HE account of this most interesting national event, which Dr. RUSSELL has

written, is Illustrated by the pencil of an accomplished artist, and is preceded by a brief Description of the Progress of the Princess of Wales, and of the chief

incidents connected with her journey, and such information in relation to the subject-matter as may justify the book being called the History of the Marriage. The text thus illustrated describes the principal Scenes antecedent to the Nuptials, from the departure of H.R.H. from Denmark to her reception by the British Fleet off the Nore; her passage through London, and her welcome by the people ; her arrival at the Castle, and the arrangements and details of the Marriage Ceremony. In addition, the magnificent Bridal Presents are represented in their true colours. The Plates are in full colours and gold, and in wood engraving. Thus, as a work of the greatest national interest, as one possessing every element of elegance and refinement, it is worthy of a large demand, whilst for a long time to come it is felt that it must be, beyond every other, the most coveted Gift-book, and the most elegant Drawing-room Souvenir.

In addition to the Forty-two Splendid Plates, beautifully produced in colour-which open to our view with vivid truthfulness a panorama at once grand and historical, full of momentous and touching interest, and unsurpassed in our time—we have four pages comprising the “Marriage Attestation Deed,” giving exact fac-similes of the Signatures of Fiftytwo Royal and Distinguished Personages, witnesses of the marriage, and others. These four pages alone greatly enhance the value of the book, and form a very important record of the event, being clearly and gracefully done after the original. The Twenty-two Coloured Plates forming that portion devoted to the Jewelry, &c., are particularly charming, and bring before ! us, in brilliant and sparkling array, some fine specimens of the art, tempting and dazzling in the extreme. S. & T. GILBERT are now in a position to offer this Elegant

Historical Work at the following Reduced Prices for immediate Cash :Small Folio Copies, handsomely bound in Crimson Cloth, extra gilt, gilt

edges, published at £5. 5s. Offered at £2. 2s. Superbly Finished Large Paper Copies, the Plates Mounted like drawings,

handsomely bound, Half Morocco, gilt edges, published at £10. 10s.

Offered at £5. 5s. After the expiration of this year the Reduced Price of the £5. 55. copies will be Raised to

£2. 125. 6d.

EXAMPLES OF CHINESE ORNAMENT,

SELECTED FROM

Objects of Porcelain, Enamel, and Woven Fabrics, In the South Kensington Museum, and other Collections,

BY OWEN JONES. ! Comprising One Hundred Elaborate Plates, Brilliantly Illuminated in Gold and Colours,

with Descriptive Letter-press and a Notice on Chinese Ornament, forming altogether an entirely New and Superb Text-Book of Decorative Design, from Types hitherto little

known, and a valuable Aid towards the Success and Development of Ornamental Art. Small Folio, Handsomely Bound, Crimson Cloth, gilt edges, price £4. 4s.

AUTHOR'S PREFACE.
HE late war in China, and the Ti-ping Rebellion, by the destruction and sacking

of many public buildings, has caused the introduction to Europe of a great
number of truly magnificent works of Ornamental Art, of a character which had

been rarely seen before that period, and which are remarkable, not only for the perfection and skill shown in the technical processes, but also for the beauty and harmony of the colouring, and general perfection of the ornamentation.

In the following Plates I have gathered together as great a variety of these new Styles of Ornament as have come within my reach, and I trust that no important phase of this Art has escaped me.

I have had the advantage of access to the National Collection at South Kensington and the unrivalled Collection of ALFRED MORRISON, Esq., of Fonthill, who has secured the finest specimens from time to time, as they have appeared in this country. From the Collection of Louis HUTH, Esq., exhibited in South Kensington, and from many objects in the possession of M. DIGBY WYATT, Esq., Colonel De LA RUE, THOMAS CHAPPELL, Esq., F. O. WARD, Esq., Messrs. Nixon and RHODES, and others, the bulk of the compositions have been obtained. My thanks are especially due to Messrs. DURLACHER and Mr. WAREHAM for the liberal loan of many objects, which I have been thus enabled to copy in the quiet of the studio.

I venture to hope that the publication of these types of a Style of Ornament hitherto little known will be found, by all those in the practice of Ornamental Art, a valuable and instructive aid in building up what we all seek--the progressive development of the forms of the past, founded on the eternal principles which all good forms of Art display.

Published at £3. 10s. Offered at £2. 2s. ONE THOUSAND AND ONE INITIAL LETTERS, designed and
