The final 2 pages are Landseer's announcement of the works on which he was currently engaged. The Royal Institution had invited Landseer to give a series of lectures on engraving in 1806, but dismissed him after his critical remarks on John Boydell; in response, Landseer published the lectures in the following year, with a lengthy introduction.
