PRICE SIXPENCE MONTHLY.

PROSPECTUS.

The first number of the ENGLISH ILLUSTRATED MAGAZINE will be published in October next.

The price at which it is issued justifies the belief that it will appeal to a large and varied circle of readers, and an

endeavour will be made in the choice and arrangement of its contents to satisfy the tastes of all who are interested in Literature and Art.

a wider

By the help of numerous engravings, which will be applied to the illustration of every theme wherein the services of Art can be fitly employed, it is intended to give to the pages of the English ILLUSTRATED MAGAZINE a scope and a more vivid and varied interest than can be attained by the unaided resources of printed text, while at the same time the presence and support of writers of reputation in every branch of Literature and Science will effectually distinguish the new publication from those illustrated periodicals which are exclusively devoted to the study and criticism of art.

The English ILLUSTRATED MAGAZINE is designed for the entertainment of the home, and for the instruction and amusement of young and old, and it will be conducted in the belief that every section of its readers, in whatever direction their tastes and interests may tend, are prepared to demand and to appreciate the best that can be offered to them.

Fiction, in the shape of short stories or longer serials, will always find a place in the pages of the ENGLISH ILLUSTRATED MAGAZINE, and Poetry will be admitted as often as it is found possible to secure contributions from acknowledged masters of the craft. The Magazine will also contain studies in IIistory and Biography, and records of Travel, together with descriptive papers on such places in our own Empire, and in Foreign Countries, as by right of natural beauty, or the associations of art, have served to make travel memorable. It will treat from time to time of the serious occupations of our modern life, and of its pleasures and amusements, of our National Industries and our National Sports, touching, as the occasion offers, upon all topics Literary, Artistic, Scientific and Social, which are of interest to English-speaking peoples throughout the world.

The Conductors of the Magazine, in presenting their Programme to the public, do not seek to anticipate judgment upon their work by professions the worth of which can only be tested by experience. They are duly conscious of the arduous nature of their enterprise, and of the exacting standard of taste which has been established by the efforts of worthy predecessors in the same field. They will proceed in their undertaking in the full conviction that a solid and enduring success with the many can only be achieved by qualities of excellence that will also satisfy the few, and they will act in the belief that such excellence is a first condition of popularity and success.

The prominent place assigned to Illustration will demand the exercise of special care in the preparation of the Engravings for the Magazine, and in this department no pains will be spared to secure satisfactory results. A powerful impulse has been lately given to the practice of wood-engraving, both in England and in the United States, and the greater refinement bestowed upon his work by the artist requires for its interpretation a corresponding degree of delicacy and skill on the part of the printer. It has therefore been thought advisable to erect special machines for the printing of the Magazine, and in their construction advantage has been taken of all the latest improvements which have been introduced with a view to certainty and delicacy of typographical workmanship
