Proposals have been issued by Messrs. Harraden and Son, of Cambridge, for publishing by Subscription, under the title of Cantabrigia Depicta, a series of Views in the University of Cambridge, accompanied with Letter-press Descriptions. The Views will be entirely different from those already before the public. In the execution of the plates, the stroke engraving will be adopted throughout. It is intended to complete the work in six numbers, forming a handsome quarto volume; each number to contain four views, besides occasional vignettes and plans. The first number is expected

to appear on the first of February 1809; the remaining numbers to be ready in the course of the year.-Any number may be purchased separately; but the price will be considerably raised after the completion of the work.

A new edition of Lardner's Works, which have been long out of print, is in considerable forwardness. For the accommodation of purchasers, the publisher has resolved to issue the works in monthly parts. The first part will make its appearance on Wednesday, the first of March, and the others in succession, on the first day of every month or earlier, at the option of Subscribers. It is calculated, that the whole works will be comprised in about 32 parts, and that this will be the cheapest edition of the works of Lardner ever published. The publisher pledges himself to execute this desirable undertaking in a neat and respectable manner.

For MARCH, 1809.

Art. 1. Chronicle of the Cid: from the Spanish. By Robert Southey. 4to. pp. 510. Price 17. 5s. Longman and Co. 1808.

DURING the seven centuries that have elapsed since the

death of the Cid, there has, probably, never been a time, till within the last seven months, when a large volume of half legendary history of his adventures would have had any great chance of obtaining much attention in England. Just now is the time, or rather four or five months since was the time, for calling some of the chiefs of the ancient Spanish chivalry from their long slumber, in order to assist us to extend backward into former ages our interest in the heroic character of that nation; a nation in which we had begun to hope that almost every nobleman, and every peasant, was going to perform such exploits as those of the Cid, in a more righteous cause than almost any in which that hero had the fortune to display his valour. We are never content to confine our admiration to the present spirit and actions of an individual, or of a people, that has become a favourite with us, if we can find or fancy any thing deserving to be admired, in the retrospect of its earlier times. Besides, when a people is entering on a grand and most perilous enterprise, in which it is evident that any thing less than the most heroic spirit must fail, the martial names and atchievements of its ancestors have a certain influence, a greater, indeed, than is warranted by the history of national character, on our hopes of its success. When summoned to vindicate the national cause, the men surely will not hide themselves from danger among the very monuments of their heroic progenitors; they can not be content to read and recite the stories of invincible champions, of their own names, and, by their nativity, reflecting lustre on their own villages and towns, and yet see these towns and villages commanded and plundered by bands of foreign invaders; they can not endure to see their country and themselves in a state to make them abhor the recollection that such renowned heroes were their forefathers-is it possible that the Spaniards of the present day, recalling to mind the gallant hostility which once expelled the Moors, can quietly sink down under the domination of the moVol. V.
