PREFACE. 
THE 
professional 
life 
of 
Mr. West 
constitutes 
Work, 
important part of an historical 
ill] 
in which 
the 
matter 
of 
this volume 
could 
only have been 
introduced as an episode, 
and: 
perhaps 
not with 
much 
propriety even 
in 
that 
form. 
It 
WZIS 
my 
intention, 
at 
one 
time, 
to 
have 
Prepared 
the 
whole of his memoirs, separately, for publication; 
but 
review of 
a careful 
the manuscript convinced 
that 
the 
transactions 
in which 
he 
has 
been 
engaged, 
subsequently to 
his 
arrival 
England, 
in 
are 
SO 
much 
of 
3 
pubHc 
nature, 
and 
belong 
SO 
immediately to the history of the Arts, 
that such 
separation could not 
be 
effected without 
ESSEN- 
tially impairing the interest and unity of the main 
design; 
and that the particular nature of this por- 
tion of his memoirs admitted 
detached and arranged il1t0 11 
within itself. 
of being  
whole
