Book Collectors. The passion of book collecting arises as often from folly and vanity, as from a real desire to possess a work of unique value. Ope purchases a book because it is the first edition ; another because it is the last: another learned collector purchases a work, not because he cares for the author, but because some learned mau's name or autograph, according to the modern fashionable literary nomenelature, is written on the title-page. This rage for collecting has not been contined to Europe alone, but Asia and Africa have been ransacked for manu. scripts, whose sole value was, that nobody could understand them. It was, however, perhaps more prevalent in the seventeenth century than in the present : at that time some ingenious gleaners iu ihe literary harvest-home brought to Paris a number of very valuable Arabian manuscripts, well preserved and labelled, with uames of high import and sounding fame. The collectors rushed to the scene of action, eager to purchase and out bid each other, and the sellers well knew how to take advantage of this empressment literaire ; high prices were asked and given, and happy was he who could add to his library a book which he could not understand. The Sorbonne, the academy royal, and all the scavans, were in raptures with their acquisitions : when at length their excessive joy permitted them to trust these morceaus precieux to the inspection of those who really understood the Arabic language, it appeared that the manuscripts certainly contained accounts of great value, for they were the ledgers of Persian and Arabian merchants in Bussora and Bagdad.

Lawrence and Fuseli.-The very sovereigos at Aixla-Chapelle, it seems, paid court to the former of these great painters. Alexander inserted the pegs of his easel, and even Francis put on a smile of bene. volence, when the aristocratic-looking representative of English art was !presented to him.

The Pope was affectionate to him, and his famous minister, Gonsalvi, entreated his friendship. On the other hand, Lawrence knew himself and his position: one arrogant thought or look never escaped him; and if Alexander performed a menial office for him, he placed it not to his own greatness, but to the Emperor's condescension. But if Lawrence was sensitively alive to the distinctions of rank, Fuseli stood upon the equality of man-the nobility of genius. The life of Lawrence, just published, is illustrated with three portraits of this eminent painter, taken at various periods of his life ; and the life and writings of Fuseli have a portrait of this original artist prefixed, exquisitely engraved by Dean. These two biographies may be ranked among the most popular and entertaining of their class recently published.
