Portrait of Shelley. Sir Percy Shelley has sent us a

lithograph from the picture of his father, painted at Rome in 1822 by Miss Curran, the only authentic portrait of the poet in existence. The lithograph, which is published by Messrs. Hanhart, of 88 Charlotte Street, Rathbone Place, seems to us an admirable one, and will be valued by all admirers of the poet. As to the picture, its only fault is that it is a little too much idealized. There must have been more of the human about Shelley than this picture gives, but as we shall never get another likeness, one may still be grateful to Miss Curran.
