THE TURNER GALLERY. Comprising seven magnificent line steel engravings of some of the wonderful paintings of J.M.W. Turner--all preceded by a choice portrait on steel, by W. Holl, of Turner, taken from the picture in the National Gallery, London. Turner's works are among the wonders of modern art--miracles of conception and execution--and the effort to reproduce them, on steel, for the gratification and the admirers of the truly beautiful, will meet with a hearty response. The portfolio comprises those thus far produced, viz:--1st. Portrait of Turner. 2d. Calais Pier. 3d. Bacchus and Ariadne. Figures and Landscape. 4th. Dido building Carthage. 5th. Peace. Burial of Wilkes at Sea in the Night. 6th. The Shipwreck. Storm Scene. 7th. Phyrne Going to the Baths as Venus.
