The British Artists will doubtless be preferred in this Work; but we shall fiequently give OUTLINEs of the most celebrated Paintings of the ANCIENT MASTERS,-especially when they are confined to British COLLECTIONS; and more particularly when they are of a super-eminent reputation, and can be given in COMPLETE SETS; of which a Specimen is now laid before the Public, in the
SEVEN CARTOONS OF RAPHAEL IN THE PRESENT NUMBER.
This will be sufficient to give a taste and knowledge of the Plan of OUTLINE ENGRAVINGS.
The next Number will contain a correct and vigorous Outline of the celebrated Picture of the Death of General Wolfe, by B. West, Esq. President of the Royal Academy; copied from the original Picture in his own possession, and under his special superintendance.
Every succeeding Number of the Magazine will contain an OUTLINE, executed in a similar manner, of some distinguished Historical Picture of a modern Artist; and the succeeding Supplements will contain WHOLE Sets of Engravings, either of ancient or deceased British Masters.
A Set of HOGARTH's Marriage A-la-Mode is now in land for the next Supplement; and it is intended to comprehend all the Works of that celebrated Artist in this Magazine; in order that every thing introduced may be complete, and not left in an unbroken series.
It is trusted that this will be esteemed an additional Embellishment of no ordinary value.- It is necdless to say that a Periodical Work, of a similar sort with this, has never attempted any decoration of the like kind.
It is intended, moreover, to introduce another material improvement in this Work, viz.
COSTUMES OF EVERY NATION IN THE WORLD. They will be given in addition to the usual Fashions; and it is trusted their value will be sufficiently understood, when it is known what immense sums are daily demanded for publications of a similar kind, of which the Plates we not so well executed as those which will be given (as the Additional and Extraordinary Embellishments) in this Magazine.

A very extraordinary and most valuable Historical Print, consisting of six whole-length
THE SUPPLEMENTAL NUMBER,
Being the Nineteenth, of LA BELLE ASSEMBLEE;
Published on the First of July, price 2s. 60.
THE Subject of the present Print is that of the first introduction of the Emperor ALEXANDER of Russia to the Queen of PRUSSIA, by the King, her husband, who is seen in the act of presenting his illustrious guest to the Queen-Her Majesty, accompanied by the Countess Vonness, receives him with an air of dignified complacency and august grandeur. At the termination of the Picture are seen the two Brothers of the King of Prussia, Prince William, and Prince HENRY. They are dressed in the military habit of the country; but the Queen is attired in a plain and simple manner, much after the Parisian fashion of dress which prevails generally in the Prussian Court.--The Figures are all whole lengths and correct Portraits of the august Personages represented, and so admirable are the Likenesses in the original Print from which this is most accurately copied, that the Emperor of Russia and all the Prussian Court were liberal Subscribers at two Guineas for each Print.
This Interview took place on the 10th of June, 1802, at, Memel, a city at some distance from Berlin, and situated on the Polish frontiers.
