Heath's Book of Beauty, 1833 : With Nineteen Beautifully Finished Engravings, from Drawings by the First Artists (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Heath's Book of Beauty, 1833: With Nineteen Beautifully Finished Engravings, From Drawings by the First Artists I have succeeded, it is impossible for me to decide. There are few partial friends now a-days, whose previous praise or advice gives you a foretaste of the critical futurity that awaits you: your manuscript goes from the desk to the press, and from the press to the public, to stand or fall by a judgment which casts no shadows before. I only venture to hope for a 'continuance of the kindness which has hitherto been my encouragement and re ward. I have often trespassed upon' it, but for that I do not apologise the public can scarcely be displeased that my industry and imagination are exerted to the utmost in its service.
