Excerpt from The Vicar of Wakefield: A Tale Was engaged upon the book. In Wed an octavo edition, the lates of which were beautifully engraved By Eastre's pupil and Blake's partner, James me the Vicar taking leave of George, the Rescue of Sophia from Drowning, the Honeysuckle Arbour, the Vicar and Olivia, the Prison Sermon, and the F amily Party at the end. The best of them, perhaps, is that in which Olivia's father, with an inexpressible tender ness of gesture, lifts the half-sinking, half-kneeling form of his repentant daughter. But though none can be said to be wanting in that grace which is the unfailing characteristic of the artist, upon the whole they are not c/zefs Certainly they are not as good as the best of the Clarissa series in Harri son; they are not even better than the illustrations to Sterne, the originals of which are at South Ken.
