Sometimes the articles, though well written, are unsuitable; at others they will give offence, without promising an equivalent advantage ; at other times, they are too local to command general attention ; and not unfrequently, would involve us in controversies, which few besides the parties engaged would regard with any interest. On occasions like these, we have learnt by long experience, that the door, being once opened, whenever an attempt is made to shut it, some one or other is sure to take offence.

In compliance with various requests, we have occasionally, during the present year, substituted other plates in the room of portraits. This has given variety to our embellishments, and furnished diversity in the productions of art. We are also glad to learn that it has supplied a new source of gratification to the various readers of the IMPERIAL MAGAZINE.

On the style and manner of these engravings it is needless to expatiate. Those which are before the world want no recommendation.

They have long since been honoured with public approbation ; and the admiration they have acquired becomes a guarantee for others with which they may hereafter be associated. It will therefore be almost unnecessary to add, that all future engravings will be finished in a style of excellence, worthy of the IMPERIAL MAGAZINE.

Of the numerous works which pass under review, a faithful character has been given. This has sometimes appeared in a condensed form, when the want of magnitude and importance in the work reviewed, and the want of room in our pages, have either prevented an extended analysis, or rendered it unnecessary. To this department particular attention has been paid, and from this strict impartiality no deviation will be suffered to take place.

To extend this Preface with inflated promises of future excellence, would be worse than contemptible. Duty, interest, and gratitude, point out the manner in which it should be conducted. If these fail, no protestations can be worthy of any confidence.

For past favours, the proprietors of the IMPERIAL MAGAZINE beg to return their sincerest thanks to their numerous and highly respected subscribers; assuring them, that nothing shall be wanting on their part, to secure a continuation of that patronage with which they have been so long and so amply honoured.
