Notwithstanding the increase in the uri.'c v
of subscription last fall, when the Aldlne a
Numed Its present noble proportions aud rep
resentative diameter, the edition was more
than double the past year; proving that the
American public appreciate a sincere ef
fort in the eiuiMn ol Art. The publishers,
anxlou tojiiitiry the ready confidence thus
demonstrated, havo exerted themselves to
tho titmot to develop and improve the
work; and the plana tor this coining year,
an untnlded bv the monthly Ismioh, will as
tonlh and delight even the mot sanirulne
friends ut the Aldlne.
Tho Aldlne will reproduce examples of
the bcit foreign maxter?, selected with a
view to the highest artistic sucee". and
irreatet general interest ; avoiding such as
have becumc familiar, tlirouyli photograph,
Ul ill Ull, Iklllil.
The quarterly tinted plates for 173, will
reproduce four of .lohn S, DavU' Inimitable
child-sketches, appropriate to the four sea
sons. These plates, apncarlm: iu tbe Imucs
tor ,iamiary, April, ,ini), anu uctotier,
would lie alone worth the price of a jear"
PREMIUM IIROMOS FOIt 1373.
Every atibcriber to the Aldlne, who pay.
Iu adtauee for the year 1873, will receive,
without additional charge, a pair of beauti
ful nil chromox, alter J. J. Hill, tho eminent
English painter. The pictures, entitled
"Tho Village. Belle," and "CrosMni; the
Moor." are 14x20 Inches aro printed from
2.'i dllfcrent plates, requiriii); 2i luipressious
and tints to perfect each picture. The same
chromos are sold lor f.'W per pair, Iu the art
stores. As It Is the determination of Its con
ductors t keep tho Aldino out of the reach
ot competition in etry department, the
chromos will bo found ahead ol any that
can be otfered by other periodicals. Ever)'
subscriber will receive a certificate, ot er the
signature of the publishers, truaranfreluj;
that tho chromos delivered snail bo equal to
the samples furnished the agent,
or the money will be refunded.
The distribution of pictures of this grades
freo to the subscribers to a five dollar peri
odical, will mark an epoch in tbe history of
Art; and, considering the unprecedented
cheapness of the price for I'lm Aldlne Itself,
the marvel falls little short of a .nlriade,
even to those best acquainted with the
achievements of luventtiu genius and Im
prove.! mechanical appliances. (Kor Illus
trations of these chromos, see November ls
stto of tbe Aldlne.)
THE LITERARY DEPARTMENT
will continue under the care of Mr. Richard
Henry Stoddard, assisted by the best writer
and poets of the day, who will strive to havo
