LA BELLE ASSEMBLEE, ; Requests the attention of all the Subscribers to the folloiving Address.

Many readers have expressed their wish to have the Plates of Fashions coloured, even at an encreased expence, in preference to the manner in which they have hitherto been delivered; on the contrary, others have expressed their entire approbation of receiving them uncoloured, as it affords their young friends an opportunity of practising and improving their taste in the Fine Arts, --the colours are properly described in the descriptions of the Plates; the Proprietor has therefore, in this Number, given the Prints of Fashions coloured, without charging any additional expence to the purchasers, which will afford an opportunity of deciding whether they will choose to have the Prints of Fashion coloured in future at ::s. 6d. per Number, or whether they will continue to receive them plain as usual, at 2s.6d. per Number.

Those persons who mean to have the Prints coloured in future, are requested to give their directions accordingly, to their respective Booksellers, in order that a proper number to prevent disappointment, may be prepared to deliver in good condition, on the first day of the Month, with the regular publication of the Work.

The next Number, to be published on the first of February, will be enriched in a very extraordinary style, with a Transparent and lucid Print in Colours, as a Specimen of the Fashionable, and very interesting, mode of colouring Prints to represent the effects of Stained Glass. With this Print will be given an explanation of the manner, with directions to persons for prepar. ing Prints, and for colouring them to their own fancies, in this lucid and transparent style.

The other embellishments to be given in the next Number, will be novel and equally interest. ing, as it is the Proprietor's resolution not to spare even the most prodigal expences which may be necessary to render this work the most estimable and valuable of any Periodical Work whatever that has been, or may be issued from the British Press.

Many complaints, and much confusion, having arisen amongst the Booksellers in the Country, on account of other Monthly publications having adopted similar external appearances, and exactly imitating the colour and fashion of the Cover of this Work; Mr. Bell apprises the Subscribers to this Magazine, that he will put himself to an extraordinary expence to improve the style and appearance of the Covers of LA BELLE ASSEMBLEE in future, which will be Printed on a Superline olive-coloured Paper, of the quality and appearance of the sample now annexed.

The next Number of this work, to be published on the first of February, as above, will contain a treasure of inestiinable value, Mr. Bell has been honoured with permission to engrave a PORTRAIT OF HER ROYAL Highness


From an original Miniature Picture, finished within the last month, by R. Cosway, Esq. R. A. And there is reason to believe, as it certainly will be the most interesting, that it will also be one of the most beautiful Prints that ever was engraven.

The rest of the Embellishments to be given in the same Number, will possess, as nearly as possible in every respect, a corresponding interest with the Portrait.

A few Proof Impressions will be taken off for presentation to the Royal Family; the usual number afterwards will be issued on the first of February in the most perfect state, to supply those who may have previously become purchasers of the former Numbers ; the subsequent delivery will be in the usual routine of applica

It is not necessary, in this instance, to recommend early application.
