The proprietors of the Illustrated London news have great

pleasure in announcing the forward preparation of a most superb

engraving as a companion to their celebrated Large Print entitled

"London in 1842"

In selecting this engraving, they are convinced that the subject

chosen from its paramount interest and attraction, will meet with

universal approbation. It will represent a Magnificent

PANORAMA

of

THE RIVER THAMES

Showing at one view "The Royal-Towered Thame:"; its "forests of

masts;" its crowded Docks and Port; its fleet of Steamers; its

NOBLE BRIDGES, UNEQUALLED IN THE WORLD;

its busy Wharfs and Quays, and the various objects of interest and beauty upon its immediate banks, including

GREENWICH, AND ITS SUPERB PALACE HOSPITAL;

and exhibitingthe winding of the "Silver Thames" through the

mighty mass of buildings that form the Metropolis of the Commer-

cial World.

Showing as distinctly as in a Map, yet with beautiful picturesque

effect the several

STREETS OF THE METROPOLIS ;

with the many hundred Churches, Palaces, Columns, and Arches ;

Government Offices, and Public Institutions, Club Houses, Noble

Mansions, and Palatial Homes ; embellished Street Architecture

Terraces and Villas ; Theatres ; Railways ; Parks and Public

Walks ; Factories and Warehouses ; and, in short, a perfect

Picture of the Vast Extent, Architectural Character, and

Most Recent Improvements, of the

BANKS OF THIS NOBLE RIVER

To be engraved in the

FIRST STYLE OF THE ART,

From a most Elaborate Drawing made expressly for the

ILLUSTRATED LONDON NEWS ;

And which has ocuupied the Artists for several months, so that the strictest reliance maybe placed on its accuracy.

The entire length of the PRINT will be

UPWARDS OF EIGHT FEET!

but it is impossible to enumerate one tenth of the objects.

The interest of the subject cannot be surpassed, and the highest

talent is employed in its execution.

-- Further announcements of this Magnificent Print will be duly given.
