Chapter 14. On the Choice of Landscapes, as appropriated to
different Parts of the Day.

It is from the contrast of light and shadow that all natural ob-
jects derive their varying tints and beauty. The morning sun
is in these respects, particularly favourable to the viewing of
large masses of forest trees, projecting rocks, mountains, and
deep vallies. These objects acquire an additional relief by the
play of the light upon them, and by the long shadows projected
by them.

The brightness of the sun at noon, on the contrary, is suitable
to detached objects, and of small extent, as to rapid waters, or
to ornamental buildings, that the eye may not be fatigued and
dazzled by the glare of too wide an expanse of reflected light.

The calm freshness of the evening, such as Claude Lorrain
has finely expressed, is adapted to an extensive country, to
groves through which the light penetrates, to spacious meadows,
and still waters which reflect the neighbouring objects; to dif-
tant views softened by the intervening air: and these are
heightened by the infinite variety of soft tints, which the sky
and the diftant parts of the landscape at this time more parti-
cularly exhibit.

In the 15th chapter, the Author, with great philosophical skill,
shews the power of landscapes over our senses, and, through
their intervention, over the soul; and he particularly exempli.
fies his theory by a pleasing and animated description of a scene
of the romantic cast, applicable to the neighbourhood of the
Alps; where this analogy between physical and moral impres-
fions is felt in its greatest force.

In the 16th and last chapter, the Author, who unites the qua-
lities of an useful and good citizen with those of a man of taste,
describes the means of combining pleasure with utility, in the
general disposition of grounds.

To this end he proposes several ideas, the result of his obser-
vation, during many years, in France as well as in other parts
of Europe ; relative to the improvement of agriculture, to the
increafing the breed of cattle, and, above all, to the health and
comfort of the inhabitants of the country. The principal points
here considered, are the advantage of placing the dwelling of the
cultivator in the middle of his grounds; the division and ex-
change of lands; the price of corn, and of labour ; the size of
farms; and the necessity of inclosing.

The whole of this little treatise is written with so much
knowledge of the subject, so much taste and sensibility, and
breathes such a spirit of humanity ; that it will undoubredly
be received by the Public as a most, agrecable and instructive
work,
