MARTIN'S Illustrations of the Bible, Part IV., contain two new

de- signs (for he has adapted some of his illustrations of MILTON to this object), but they have no new features ; except that there is a hardness and a want of distance in them, as compared with some of the plates to the Milton. The representation of immense space by means of subtle gradations of light and shade, is a prominent quality, which we cannot afford to miss in MARTIN'S pictures ; and as the artist is his own engraver, it rests with him to attend to this.
