The Rew Review,



The consideration of the number of Reviews, Weekly, Monthly, and Quarterly, offered to the public, may produce a wo ler the sight of a Prospectus for an additional periodical work: but the slightest examination of the nature of the new publication will make wonder cease.

The present Reviews are not so much distinguished for an account of a new work, as for a critical examination of the subject on which it is written. What is called a Review of a political or religions publication, really consists of a decla. ration of the sentiments of the Reviewer; and the publication is generally extolled or depreciated, not according to its abstract merit as a composition, but accord. ing to the party or sect, which the Critic is disposed to follow.

Such has been during more than half a Century the conduct of the most respectable Monthly Reviewers. The Quarterly Reviews, lately established, have risen still higher in the scale of original disquisition. They have often taken the title of a book as a Motto to a Dissertation on a subject, which occupied the public mind, and scarcely hinted at the publication, which appeared at first sight as the object of their Criticism.

It is not intended to depreciate the merit of these Reviewers. Much learning, genius, and information have been thrown on the subjects, which they have undertaken to elucidate; their observations on Political Economy have, on some occasions, suggested useful hints to Government, and their Country has been informed, if not rected, by the result of their labors. From the collision of their opposite sentiments, and from the facts which they have brought to light in sup. port of their opinions, the public mind has been illuminated, taste has been refined, knowledge has been increased, and perhaps it is not too much to say that the general manners have been improved.

But we strongly feel the force of an objection, which has been frequently made, that it is necessary, in order to form an impartial opinion of a book, to read many Reviews of opposite principles, and that in consequence of the length, to which critical dissertations are carried, many books are not reviewed until their novelty or their importance has ceased; and some are never noticed. To remove these objections, a new Periodical Work is proposed to the public, under the title of 66 THE NEW REVIEW, OR MONTHLY ANALYSIS, OF GENERAL LITERATURE,” to be published on the 1st of January, 1813, and continued on the 1st of every Month, Price 28. 6d.


The plan, which has been suggested, is : 1. To analyse every Publication, by giving a view of the Contents ; the Preface,

when it explains the subject; and Extracts of prominent and striking parts of the book ; thus enabling the reader to exercise a judgment unprejudieed by the

sentiments of the Reviewer. 2. To print a Supplementary Number at the end of the year, containing an Index of Subjects with reference to the Authors, who have treated on them; thus

1 perpetuating a full and correct list of all Writers, and of the Subjects of their

Publications. 3. To insert Literary Intelligence, and Notices of Works in hand; to mention

Improvements made in new Editions of Works; and to admit Defences of Authors against Criticisms, without any expensc to the public, but at a moder

ate charge to the writers. 4. To add the Table of Contents of the preceding number of every Review, thus

enabling the public to ascertain at one view what has been noticed. This will be found particularly convenient for all those, who have not direct recourse to extensive libraries, where indeed every periodical Publication is not to be found ; by the want of which many persons are ignorant of the review of their works.—Thus, instead of being a rival, this will be au Index and a Supplement to the established Reviews.

As it is intended to state what other Works each Author has Published, or Edited, it is requested that a list of them may be sent with the Book to be noticed.

To prevent omissions, and an expense proportioned to the universality of the Notices, it is hoped that a copy of every Book will be lent to the Editor, to the care of Mr. A. J. Valpy, Tooke's Court, Chancery Lane, London, at whose Press The NEW REVIEW will be printed. -To be had of all Booksellers.

Bibliotheca Spenceriana. A descriptive catalogue of the early printed books, and of many important first editions in the library of George John Earl Spencer, K. G. &c. &c. &c. accompanied with copious notes, plates of fac-similes, and

numerous appropriate embellishments.

BY THE REV. T. F. DIBDIN. The present Work is intended to be a Catalogue Raisonné of that portion of the above celebrated Library, which comprehends Books printed in the Fifteenth Century, and First Editions of many distinguished Authors. It will commence with an account of Books printed, from Wooden Blocks, about the middle of the Fifteenth Century: from which many extraordinary Specimens of Cuts will be given, as tending to illustrate the History of Engraving during the same period. This division will be followed by Theology; comprehending a list of some of the scarcest Latin, German, Italian, and Dutch Bibles printed in the Fifteenth Century; with notices of the first Editions of the Polyglott, French, English, Polisli, and Sclavonian Bibles. These will be followed by an account of some celebrated Psalters, Missals, and Breviaries, executed within the same period. The Interpreters of Scripture, and many of The Fathers, will close the department of Theology.
