These Handbooks are reprints of the dissertations prefixed to the large catalogues of the chief divisions of works of art in the Museum at South Kensington ; arranged and so far abridged as to bring each into a portable shape. The Lords of the Committee of Council 011 Education having determined on the publication of them, the editor trusts that they will meet the purpose intended; namely, to be useful, not alone for the collections at South KenĀ­sington but for other collections, by enabling the public at a trifling cost to understand something of the history and character of the subjects treated of.                                                 
The authorities referred to in each book are given in the large catalogues ; where will also be found detailed descriptions of tin very numerous examples in the South Kensington Museum.
