ED1TED BY VIrs. Sarah J. Hale, Morton M'Michael, VIrs. L, H, Sigourney,L. A. Godey. CONTRIBUTORS TO EACH NUMBER. Miss. C.M. Sedgwick, N. P. Willis, Miss E. Leslie, Mrs.C. Lee Henez,1 Mrs. E. C. Embury, T. S.Arthur, Theodore S. Fay, Mrs. E. F. Ellet. In annuiincing to his numerou9 patrons and the public at Jarge, his arrangements 'or the year 1842, the proprietor of Godey 's! jady's Bookj lakes occasion to acknovl- edgethe unparallelec' and triumphantsuccess, uf his Magazine, which has now reached the extraordinary number offorty thousand nonlhly.he'wga. larger edition than has ev-l erheen printed of any other work of any description in America. This euccss he is aware has been ottaiued by the vast superi-, ority which the Lady's Book has always. maintained over thecontemporary magazines! which have attempted to rival ils me rits, a superiority which he is still determined to jreserve by keeping ir, in all its departments iterary, inleilectual and moral, as well as pictorial, emblematic, artistic, and mechanical. That this ia no ïdle boast, hc appeals to the experience of the past twelve years, in all wliich time, he has made no promise to the public which he has not strictly per-' formed, nor underiaken anylliing whicli his means did not enable hini to acconiplish to the utmost. Entering, as he is about to do, on the 24th Volume of the Lady's Book, with increased energy and accumulated resources :with an ampie knowlcdge of the bu1 sinoss in which he is engaged, acquired by long years of unremitted application: with a : subscription list unparalleled in thu annals of literature; with numerous facilities not possessed by any other publisher; with welldigested and wide-extended arguments; and above all, with a ateadfast purpose of main-, taining the lofty elevation his work has reached, the proprietor has not hesitated to ' incur expenses, which under other circum 6tancea might prove etartling, bnt by means of which he will be enabled to raake the Lady's Book, the richest, the rarest, the most attractive, and tho most valuable periodical, inlrinsical and extrinsically, ever offeied to the American public. Litekary DErARTMEMT. - It has ever been the aim of the proprietor to impart to the Lady's Book a high literary and moral tone, and for this purpose he ha.=, without regard tocost, procured the aid ot' the most eminent writere and, for several years past, bas commilled its editorial supervisión to Mrs. J. Hale, Mrs. Lydia H. Sigourney,and Miss E. Leslie, ladies of wbom not only their own eex, but the whole country, have reason to be proud. In this respect, the Lady's Book enjoys a decided advantage over all other publications, as it is the only work devoted to ladies, ladies derive an advantnge which must be obvious to every parent, husband, brother, and well as to every lady who properly appreciates the dignity and importance of her sex. He will be enabled to furnish articles f"r om Jrs F C Embury, Mrs H B Stowe, Mrs F S Osgood, Mrs. S. Smitb, Airs M H Parsons, Mrs. J. Thayer, Mrs A M F AnnaD, Mrs. L. Hentz, .Mrs E F Ellet, Mrs. E. C. Sedman Mía. Dupuy. Mrs. M. Duncan, ! Ars V E Howard, Mrs M St Loud, Jlfiss E, Allen Mrs CHW Esling Mrs R E Parley, Miss M, B. Snowj Miss E. Leslie, Kate Franklin. Maria Edjrworth, Mrs. S. C. Hall, JMary R. Milford, Mrs Hofland, Mrs C BWilson, Mary Howitt, and other English lady-writers of distinction, some of whom have already published in the Lady's Book the only original contributions they have ever made to American iiterature. Nor has he omitted to pro-cure the assistance of eminent writers of soth sex. Aware of the universal and weir deserved popularity of N. P Willis, Eaq. ;: and conñdent that the productions of his! graceful and elegant pen will be highly ac- ceptable to the readers of the Lady's Book,' the proprietor has entered into an arrangement, by which he will be ablc to give in each number of his work an exclusive arlicle Torn the gentleman; and he has also retain-' all of the contributors whose writings have ïcretofore given such ampie satisfaction including Epes Sargeut, W. G. Siinms, Esq. Geo. P. Morris, Professor Ingraham, Jos. R. Chandler, Professor Dimitry, Robert Morris, Professor Frost, Finy Earle, M. D. Professor Waker, N. C. Brooks, A. M. Park Benjamin, Esq. E. Halden, fL. S. MacUenzie, A. M'Makin, T. S. Author, Esq. L. F. Tasistro, H. W. Herbert, Rufus Dawes, Jos. C. JSeal, E. G. Squier, Hon.R. T. Conrad, J. M'Lellan, Jr. Dr. J. K. Mitchell, Jas. Aldnch. With such aid, it is not too much to say, that tiie Literary Department of the Lady's Book will surpass any thing that has ever been orean be attempted. Ornamental Department. - It ia a source of no little pride to the Proprietor of the Lady's Book, that be first introduced into this country the plan uf furnishing, along with a monthly periodical of elegant literature, embellishments of an attractive and costly characler. The firet 6teel engravings accompanying such a work were given by him; thefírst mezaotint engraving was given by him ; the firet paiterns oí laoo-work andembroidery were given by him; the firsl colored plates of iashion were given by him ; the first muaic was given by him. These are thinga to which he would not refer, if some ofthose who have essayed to follow in his footsteps, not content vvtili inntating all bis designs, even to the form of his book, the 8ize of liis type, and the color of his cover, had not foolishly put forward claims to orig inalUy, and ettempted lo found aright to un exclusive raerit on doing that which they have borrowed from his example. But what he has done heretofore in the way uf cmbellishmcnls to his Dook, though itfarexceeded any effbrt of those who strove to copy bis movements, cannot compare with what henow means to do, His arrangements for this department of his work have been projected on the most liberal scale of expeuditure, involving an extent of outlay euch as has never before been dreamed of in any periodical, Ëuropean or American. As an evidence of hi! intentions, he now states that each number of the Lady's Book for the ensung year, will conlain at least three splendid engravings; embracing in the series every possible vanety of subjects. Historial,Landscape, Picturesque, Portraiture, Imaginativo and Emblematical, and execmed in every possible variety of the art; mezzotinr, lino and mczzotiut, stipple, mcdnlion, and that most chaste and expressive manner, the line and dot combi ned, which has given such world widecelebrity to the workaof modern arüsts. Splendidl colorcd plates of the fashions, wiil also bc given every month, containing at least four female figures, and embodying in every instance the latest costumes, receiv ed direclly from a correspondent at Paris. In order to give the greatest attracliveness to the subjects of his "mbellishments, the Proprietor has given orders to various American Painters, of cstablisïied reputation,who are now engaged m preparing expressly for the Lady's Book,numeroue original pictures, on National and Historical events, some of which are nearly completed, and eoon. will be in the hands of the eugraver. Arno og the painters tbua engaged he may enumérate J G Chapman, Painleroflhe National Picture of the Baptism of Pocahontas. P F Rothermel, J P Frankenstein, S S ösgood,of Bost.I Williams, &c He has also established a correspondence in London, through which he will receive early proof impressions of the fioest priote txecuted m that metropolis, and will thus be constantly supphed with an immense variety from which to make suitable selections as wel! as a series of pictorial illustratiuns of Shakespeare; two of which, AonaPnge and Master SJender by Leslie, and Katharine and Petruchio, by Cattermole, and are now nearly ready. AtnoDg the subjects at present io preparation for the Lady's Book, may be rnentioned Morning Devotion and Evening Devotion, - two superb pictures of domestic piety; the EfFects of Industry and the Effects of Idleness, - admirable illustrations of great moral tiuths; The Old Soldier and his Family, a beautiful transcript of patriutic feelingsi several of David Wilkie's most valued cornpositions. Departingfor the Fair and Returning from market, - charming specimens of rurul life;The Village Amanuensis,, Fortune Telling; The Secret Discovered, The Maiden's '.Jhamber, The Elopement of Bianca Capella, bc; and Edwin Landseer'ö last and greatest production. Youthful Innocence, of which the only copy in the country is that which belongs to the proprietor. Deternained to gratify every possible variety of taste, the proprietor has also made arrangements for a series of the most superb Mezzotints ever executed in this country, several of which are already engraved, and will be given to his subscribensr as eoon as a sufficient number of impre6sion can be taken to supply his immense Beeides the services of H . S. Sadd, of New York, who has now in hand a number c-f plates, the proprietor has secured the Eerviecs óf Mr. Humpuuet's of London: who is universally conceded to stand in the foremost rank of English Engravers, and whose splendid efforts in mezzotint have comm&nded the admiration of the most distinguished amateurs and critics. This eminent artist is now engaged in preparing expressly for the : Lady's Book, a number of mezzolint pictures, which the proprietor pledges himself wi.l be of an unsurpassed excellence; and of : the moet interesting and attractive 6nbjects. . To guard against all possibility of difficulty hereafter, he has likewise ordered from England, a complete mezzotint eetablishment, and itnmediately on its arrival, Mr. William E. Tucker, of this city, will corameneo operations, in that department ot art. In order to procure these various embellishments in season, the proprietor has made permanent arrangements with the foüowing eminent engravere, all of vvhom are now engaged in executing steel piates for the Lady's Book.
