CASSELL'S ART UNION, FOR THE DISSEMINATION OF FINE ART VOLUMES. Owing to the rapid progress which has been made in the education of the popular taste in matters of Art, there is found to be a constantly increasing demand amongst all classes for Illustrated Works of the highest order. To meet this, and to afford an opportunity to many who desire to become possessed of costly Works, and are at present prevented from doing so by the necessarily high prices at which they must be produced, it has been re- solved to adopt the following method, which will enable a large number of those who otherwise would be unable to gratify their art taste to obtain, at a very moderate outlay, some of the finest and most elaborately Illustrated Works which have ever been issued in this country. The chief feature of CASSELL'S ART UrON is, that there will be No Blanks, and that every subscriber will rccctve a Prize of the full value of his GlI inca Subscription, that being the lowest Prize to which he can become entitled, whilst he will have the chance of gaining, instead of such Guinea Prize, one of the higher Prizes, which will be dis- tributed in the proportion of Ten Prizes of the total ralue of Thirty-five Guineas amongst every One Hundred Sub- scribers. These extra Prizes, of the total value of Thirty- five Guineas, will be selected from the following Magnifi- cent Volumes, illustrated by Gustavo Dore :— cent Volumes, illustrated by Gustavo Dore :— THE HOLY BIBLE.—EnfllUh Edition.
