This style of art, which seems to have sprung up quite recently, promises great things, if, indeed, it does not eventually surpass every kind of oil painting, except original creations by first-rate artists. It is certainly a much more speedy process than the tedious one of copying by hand, and gives a much more polished, smooth, and pleasing production. Genius alone can create by the toilsome process and labor of years; but every art or invention which will abridge the task of multiplication, thereby ridding us of the multitude of men without genius, who can copy only, and, at the same time, do their work far better, should certainly receive our most hearty support. Chromo-lithography promises to do this. [P. 413; exhibited under heading: "Engravings. Colored Engravings, (Chromo-Lithographs), donated by J.H. Burford of Boston." Exhibited also on p. 415 under the heading: "Lithographs, (Colored and Plain). Donated by J.H. Bufford, of Boston."]
