London: Printed by and for J; BELL, Proprietor of the WEEKLY MESSENGER, Southampton-Street, Strand, July 1, 1807.
This day is published, (with the present Number of this Magazine) NUMBER NINETEEN, being the
PRICE TWO SHILLINGS AND SIXPENCE.
Which concludes the Second Volume of this Work, with the expiration of the Half-Year.
THIS Number proceeds upon the Plan of that which was published on the first of January Jast, and which gave such universal satisfaction; but the CRITICAL PART is much improved in arrangemen', copiousness, and extent; a greater variety of Books are introduced, indeed, none of any public notoriety, or pretensions to literary fame are omitted. The classification, moreover, is more perfect and comprehensive, and the Proprietors trust that, in every sense, it forms a material improvement on the last.
The Proprietors having resolved to exert themselves to their utmost power, in order to make their SUPPLEMENTAL NUMBER the greatest desideratum of their Work, have at length the satisfaction to announce that they have succeeded to the extent of their wishes, and now present, with their SUPPLEMENT, an Embellishment of a rarity, value, and interest, which has never been attempted in any similar Work.
The Embellishment prefixed to the SUPPLEMENTAL NUMBER IS
AN HISTORICAL PICTURE,
COMPOSED OF PORTRAITS.
The subject is the "Memorable introduction of the EMPEROR ALEXANDER of RUSSIA to the QUEEN OF PRUSSIA at MEMEL." It consists of SIX WHOLE LENGTH PORTRAITS; and has been Engraven from the celebrated Picture now at BERLIN. The Portraits are the most finished and accurate Likenesses of these distinguished Personages; and few of them (indeed none as whole lengths) have as yet been made public in this country. They are as follow:
1. THE QUEEN OF PRUSSIA,-A Whole Length.
2. A DISTINGUISHED LADY OF THE PRUSSIAN COURT,-Ditto.
3. THE EMPEROR OF RUSSIA,-Ditto.
4. THE KING OF PRUSSIA,-Ditto.
5. PRINCE WILLIAM OF PRUSSIA, who was killed in the battle of JENA,-Ditto 6. PRINCE HENRY, his Brother, -Ditto.
This Print has been Engraven in a most beautiful manner, by BURKE, and would sell singly in the Print Shops for Fifteen Shillings or a Guinea.
The Subscribers are requested to give orders for the SUPPLEMENT to those who supply them with the regular Work. The earlier the Order the better Impression will be obtained.
