NOTICE.

This volume has been delayed for some weeks, from the expectation that the Engraver would be able to complete, from a beautiful Miniature by Hilliard, a Portrait of Lord Bacon when he was between seventeen and eighteen years of age : but as a month must yet elapse before the Engraver can venture to submit bis Work to public inspection, I have thought it right to publish this volume, with the assurance that this Portrait will appear in the next volume. In the course of the Work there will also be Portraits of Lord Bacon when he was twelve years of age-when he was Lord Chancellor—when he was sixty-five years of ageand an Engraving from his Monument in St Michael's Church.
