EXPOSITIO 

Imp. 4to. MS. ON VELLUM, written in double columns , 
the words of the Gospel in Rustic capitals , and the words of 
the commentary in Caroline minuscules (some headings in 
uncial capitals'), 31 lines to the column; the first three leaves 
supplied in a bold German hand of the fifteenth century; 
in the original wooden boards , re-covered in the fifteenth 
century with red velvet; 

the upper cover overlaid with a frame of enamelled metal 
in eight plaques of blue, green , gold and white; with corner - 
pieces of filigreed metal in which are set oval crystals; and 
four minor settings of coloured stones in filigree; in the 
centre a sunk decoration of five figures {the Paschal lamb , 
flanked by the symbols of the Evangelists') painted in gold 
and colours on a blue ground on medallions encircled in 
gold About a.d. 950 360 0 0 

From Lord Ashbumham’s collection. 

The enamelled border is probably a little later than the original 
MS. and was done perhaps in the eleventh century; but the book and 
binding are in precisely the same condition as they were in, four 
hundred and forty years ago, when the moDastic scribe supplied the 
first three leaves, and added a preliminary table of a harmony of the 
Gospels. His writing looks like that of the region of Cologne, and 
the ancient work is undoubtedly Rhenish. We have therefore in this 
volume a precious art-monument of some old church or monastery on 
the Rhine, between Cologne and Mentz, which has been carefully 
treasured for nearly a thousand years. 

In the writing, the a is usually of the Carslene style, but following

a l it appears open like «. The combination of et is frequent. The 
diphthong <e is constantly used. The d and 2 and b hare nearly 
always long clubbed heads. There is no division between the words 
except at the ends of sentences. The stops used are the period, the 
colon, the semicolon, and the semi-colon reversed. The combination 
ct is sometimes in the usual well-known form in which the head of 
the e ends the first curve; but it often appears like st with a long s. 

The first words of the Gospel text in the original scribe’s hand, 
are “ virum Mariae de qua natus est ihs qui vocatur xps” (Matthew I). 
A leaf iu the fifth chapter is missing which contained the three lines 
deficient between “ praebe illi et alteram ” and “ qui petit a te.” In 
the sixth chapter there is a gap between “ nolite ergo asaimilari eis ” 
and “ nonne anima plus est qaam aesca.” In the ninth chapter there 
is a loss of three lines or so between “pone mannm super earn et 
vivet ” and “ dicebat enim intra se.” These things were not noticed by 
the fifteenth-century repairer; but the book is apparently otherwise 
perfect down to the miracle of the Loaves and Fishes in Cap. XV.

Lectionarium About 1070-80 210 0 0 

This grand volume, part of a splendid “ Bibliotheca,” is in two 
hands. The first is a fine upright script; the second is sloping 
forwards and less elegant but striking by its wonderful regularity and 
uniformity. The second is suggestive of a Suabian origin, but the 
former seems to be of more northerly Rhenish character.

Seventy-five beautiful miniatures, all extended into 
decorative border-stems of various sizes; the very large one 
at the beginning of Genesis being in the shape of a fantastic 
I, about fifteen inches in length and an inch and a half in 
breadth, which encloses eight pictures of the Divinity and of 
Mary in the central row of lozanges, and fourteen medallions 
of saints in the interstices. On the horizontal extension of 
this letter below are two kneeling monks, and on pinnacled 
ornaments behind them a parrot and a cock.

and of Lord Ashburnham 1320 330 0 0 

This superbly written and illuminated Bible, which is in wonder¬ 
fully fresh preservation, was, as the colophon informs ns, finished by 
Bartholommeo of Bergamo (magr. bartholomeus de pgo) in the year 
1320, in the month of May. Some notes at the beginning show that 
it was presented (about 1367) to the Monks of Mount Olivet in Perugia 
by Cardinal Niccolo Capocci (Nicola de Capotiis). He died in 1368 
after having built a church and monastery for that order in Perugia. 

These notes which originally formed part of the vellum flyleaf are now 
pasted inside the modem binding. One of them indicates the place of 
the Bible as on the second bench of the library on the east side . 

Some of the border-extensions are decorated with grotesque 
figures.—The Psalter was deliberately omitted by the scribe.

5 LIYRE D’HEURES DE JACQUES DE VILLIERS DE 
L1LLE-ADAM. 

Small 4to. ILLUMINATED MS. ON VELLUM, 

120 leaves written in batarde Gothic , 18 lines to the page ; 
with 24 small Miniatures in the Calendar and 39 large 
Miniatures in the text , floral borders to every paqe , those 
which accompany the larger Miniatures enclosing figures of 
beasts and grotesques , with the escutcheons , sometimes conjunct 
and sometimes separate , of Villiers de Lille-Adam and of 
Neele {his wife was Jeanne de Neele) ; in the original red 
velvet binding with gilt clasps 1461-1471 275 0 0 

A fine example of a French Livre d’Heures (k l’usage de Paris, 
apparently) written, decorated, and illuminated for a great French 
lord in the time of Louis XI. The book is illustrated with unusual 
splendour and richness and contains several pictures of unusual 
occurrence. The illumination is abundant in quantity and includes 
a vast number of decorative initials. As Jeanne de Neele died in 1462 
it may be considered likely that the work was done before that, but 
it has the appearance of being a few years later although it must 
evidently have preceded the year (1471) in which Jacques de Villiers 
himself died. A striking picture of St. Adrian amongst the com¬ 
memoration-services at the end may justify us in conjecturing that 
the book was prepared as a present for Adrien de Villiers-de-Lille- 
Adam, son of Jacques and Jeanne. 

The pictures are: one on each of the 24 pp. of the Calendar, 
representing the customs of the month and its zodiacal symbol. Then 
of the 38 large ones in the text, we have: 1, St. John writing in 
Patmos ; 2,3, 4, pictures of Luke, Matthew, and Mark; 5, The Annun¬ 
ciation ; 6, The Nativity ; 7, The Warning to the Shepherds; 8, The 
Adoration of the Magi; 9, The Presentation in the Temple; 10, The 
Flight to Egypt; 11, Coronation of the Virgin; 12, The Crucifixion ; 

13, Descent of the Holy Ghost; 14, King David worshipping; 15, Christ 
sustained by angels; 16, Angels making music for the Virgin and 
Child; 17, Michael beating down the Dragon ; 18, John the Baptist; 

19, Peter and Paul; 20, St. James; 21, Martyrdom of St. Sebastian ; 

22, St. Adrian as a warrior in full armour bearing on his left arm the

and Damian; 25, St. Laurence; 26, St. George and the Dragon;

6 LIVRE D’HEURES (D’ARRAS?) Small 4to. SUPERBLY 
ILLUMIMATED MS. ON VELLUM, 166 leaves in 
Gothic letter, 16 lines to the page, every page enclosed by 
a border on one side of floral and branchy character with 
gold ivy leaves and fruits and flowers; 19 large and 
'EXQUISITELY PAINTED MINIATURES, within full 
borders of leaves, fruits, and fiowers and a magnificent inner 
border of gold on which, within arabesque compartments, 
decorative fioral patterns of various colours are painted ivith 
masterly effect; in marvellously fine and fresh condition with 
full margins; in old red morocco gilt , bound about 1760 in 
Padeloup style, probably by a Spanish binder and lettered 
“ Manuscript ” About 1470 480 0 0 

One of the most brilliant and beautiful surviving examples of 
Franco-Flemish art; the condition of the book being almost incredibly 
fresh and lovely. The paintings look like the work of a great artist of 
the Burgundo-Flemish school, but the precise locality of origin is better 
defined by the French dialect used in the headings (such as “ Ches 
psalmes chi doit on dire le merquedi ” and “ les ymnes . . re se 
cangent point excepte les lichons les quelles sensieut chy apres ”) 
which is of decidedly Picard flavour, and the special veneration shown 
for St. Josse whose office and picture are the last in the book. This 
seems to belong to the region between Abbeville and Valenciennes. 

The Calendar is in the same rude French as the rubrics but is 
very scanty. It contains S. Antonis (17 Jan.); St. Adrian (March 4) ; 

S. Walri (April 1); Sainte Pieronne (31 May); Bieutremieu 
(24 August) ; S. Bave, S. Remi (October 1); S. Denijs (Oct. 9) ; 

5. Donaes (Oct. 14) ; S. Eustaes (Nov. 5). These names are chiefly 
given as examples of orthography, but they all point to Flanders. 

The pictures are: 1. A lady in her oratory kneeling before the deity 
who supports a St. Andrew’s cross, on a chequered and diapered 
background. She wears a green robe with crimson sleeves, and is in 
a green cloak lined with ermine, and having an ermine collar. Her 
headdress is the high construction favored at the time, and like her 
face is delicately painted in grisaille. 2. The Annunciation with 
a chequered background, the chequers formed by a red and blue pattern 
over the gold. 3. The Virgin and St. Elizabeth, with a landscape 
background. 4. The Warning to the Shepherds, a landscape back¬ 
ground. 5. The Adoration of the Magi, a rich diapered background. 

6. Presentation in the Temple, chequered backgrounds. 7. Massacre 
of one of the Innocents before Herod’s throne, background diapered 
above and chequered below. 8. Flight into Egypt, a landscape back¬ 
ground. 9. The Crucifixion, a diapered background. 10. Descent of 
the Holy Ghost, chequered background. 11. The Service for the 
Dead, a diapered background. 12. Three Souls borne to Heaven by 
angels, a diapered background. 13. St. Christopher, landscape back¬ 
ground. 14. St. Katherine, diapered background. 15. St. Margaret, 
chequered backgrounds. 16. The Cross bearing a dead figure clothed 
in black, diapered background. 17. St. Antony, background landscape

190 leaves, Gothic letter, 20 lines to the page; 5 LARGE 
AND 60 SMALL MINIATURES, with landscape on

style in ivhich large cut flowers and fruits and insects are 
painted in relief mostly upon a yellow background; bound 
in old French red morocco extra, gilt edges About 1490 500 0 0 

This is a clean, bright and well preserved example of the late 
Flemish school of Art, with admirable borders. The following is 
a list of the illustrations: l. A Crucifixion with nine figures, and 
a border of pale red or pink in which there are flowers, birds, and 
branches. The opposite page has a white initial on a jellow ground 
with flowers, birds, butterflies and branches, on a light maroon ground. 

2 is a picture of the Descent of the Holy Ghost, with a border of roses, 
other flowers, and butterflies, on a yellow ground. On the opposite is 
a letter in gold on a reddish ground with a border of flowers and butter¬ 
flies, and a grotesque figure below. 3. The Annunciation, with a 
border containing peacocks and other birds on a pale reddish ground. 

On the page opposite are figures of peacocks painted on a border of 
the same tint. 4. King David kneeling in his castle yard, with a 
border of flowers and birds in relief on a yellow background. A border 
of similar kind, but including insects, on the opposite page. 5. The 
three Quick and the three Dead in a landscape, within a border of cut 
flowers and butterflies in relief on a yellow ground. On the page 
opposite a corresponding border. Of the smaller pictures there is 
a Visitation, with a border on a yellow ground; a Nativity with 
a similar border ; a Presentation with a border of flowers and birds on 
a light reddish ground; Circumcision with a border of peacocks on 
a pale reddish ground; the Adoration of the Magi, with a border of 
birds, fruits, and flowers on a yellow ground; the Massacre of 
Innocents, with a border of insects, flowers, and fruits on a yellow 
ground; St. Gregory’s Mass without a border; the baby Christ, -with¬ 
out a border; Angels supporting the Chalice, with a border of flowers, 
and insects on a yellow ground ; the Virgin and Child, with a similar 
border; the dead Christ vrith Mary and John, a border of flowers and 
a bird on a pale pink ground ; St. Michael striking down the demon, 
a border of red and white roses with insects on a yellow ground ; John 
Baptist with landscape, a decorative border with birds on a yellow 
ground ; Peter and Paul, a similar border on a pale pink ground; 

John the Apostle, a border of roses and insects on a yellow ground ; 

St. Andrew, a border of flowers on a dark ground; St. James, a 
border of flowers and insects on a yellow ground; St. Christopher, no 
border; St. Anthony, a border of leaves and flowers with insects on a 
pink ground ; St. Roch, a border of daisies and wild flowers on alternate

and insects on a yellow ground; St. Catherine, a border of white and 
bine flowera on a dark ground ; St. Barbara, no border ; St. Margaret, 
no border; St. Apollonia, a border of birds and flowers and white 
decoration on a yellow ground ; St. Gertrude, a border of flowers and 
fruit with a butterfly, a peacock and another bird, on a yellow ground; 
St. Lucy, a border of white flowers, green leaves, and a butterfly on 
a dark ground ; St. Ontcommere, a border of flowers and insects on 
a yellow ground; St. Dympna, a border of flowers and insects on a 
yellow ground ; St. Brigitta, a border of white roses and fern leaves 
with insects on a dark ground. 

Thus it will be seen that we have here a beautiful example of the 
Flemish school with an unusually large quantity of ornamental 
illustration. It was executed probably somewhere in Brabant in the 
last decade of the fifteenth century< An inscription on the fly-leaf 
“ A moy Eleonor Da$a,” was written about the year 1600.

8 LIYRE D’HEURES (DE PARIS?) 8vo. A SUMPTUOUSLY 
ILLUMINATED MS. ON VELLUM, which, from the 
richness of its gilding , might he called a Golden Prayer- 
book ; 86 leaves , written in batarde letters , 33 lines to the 
page; 44 MINIATURES painted and gilt with 
marvellous skill and splendour, every page encircled 
with a floral border on a gold ground , and having mottoes 
and citations written on the borders , usually in the lower 
margin; bound in olive morocco extra , lined with green , by 
Thouvenin About 1490 184 0 0 


One of the most magnificently illustrated books of its kind; 
a blaze of gold and colour from beginning to end. There is not 
a single spot of the surface left blank. The borders are luxurious, 
with delicately painted flowers on a ground which is gilt and coloured 
in bands. The portion of the border which occupies the lower part of 
the page is generally arabesque work on coloured grounds. There are 
18 large pictures in the Calendar; one at the head of each month, 
and one at the foot of each pair of months. On the first page of the text 
there are three pictures (the Annunciation, Purgatory, and Hell). 
In front of Lauds of the Virgin, there is a picture of the Nativity. 
At the Matins of the Cross, a full-page design of the Worship of the 
Virgin, this is followed by the Adoration of the Shepherds; by an 
armorial emblazonment of the Heart of Christ; the Presentation of 
Christ in the Temple; a mother with her murdered innocent kneeling 
before Herod; Christ preaching among the Doctors ; Christ amongst 
the women; a Rosary of beads amid flowers ; David in gold armour 
bearing the slain giant’s head, a full-page picture; Meeting of the 
Quick and the Dead, also full-page; the Almighty in majesty with 
various worshipping figures, also full-page; the Virgin received in 
Heaven ; Mary the Comforter; Gauds of the Virgin; an Angel in 
gold armour with little souls in his arms ; St. Cecilia; Peter and 
Paul; St. John Baptist; St. Antony; Mary Magdalen; Margaret, 
Catherine, and Barbara. 

A striking example of that school of excessive splendour which 
became favoured in France towards the end of the fifteenth century.

The first of the orange-gold letters is a D on leaf 19; the next another 
D on leaf 31; the third a Q on leaf 41 ; the fourth another D on leaf 
42 ; the fifth an S on leaf 53; the sixth an E on leaf 67; the seventh 
a Con leaf 80 ; the eighth a D on leaf 82 ; the ninth a D on leaf 94; 
the tenth another D on leaf 140. Some additions were made towards 
the end of the volume for the purpose of converting the book into a 
Primer, at the beginning of the fourteenth century, by modifying the 
Litany and otherwise. Where this was done is shewn by a rubric on 
leaf 138 “So wer da wilt ein6 selt9 spreche vor di sunde. vnd di 
lcbendige der spreche al se her na geschreben steit.” We may assign 
the origin of the MS. to some dace not far west of Cologne.

Folio, fine MS. on vellum, written in quadruple columns, 
the inner two on each page containing the text, and the outer 
two the Apparatus or Gloss ; with numerous ornamental and 
grotesque initials, and five miniatures, one to each hook; 
bound Modena, 1241 63 0 0 

An early and valuable MS. written in the very year of Pope 
Gregory’s death. It is also interesting and important as giving the 
name of an unrecorded scribe and the exact date of his work. 

The illustrations are: 1. The Pope enthroned receiving the book 
from a kneeling monk, some standing figures and architectural orna¬ 
ment in the blue background. On the same ground to the right of the 
figures the text begins in gold with GRE j Ggl | US U | IIII | To 
the right is a long initial F with a large grotesque bird in its exten¬ 
sion.—2. On a ground of hard burnished gold, a prince with shaven 
crown receives five standing figures, who come to complain that the 
people do not pay the tithes. The colours are red, brown, green, and 
light blue.-r-3. A scene within a basilica ; a priest elevating the host 
at the altar, eight figures bowing behind him, four of them tonsured 
and four laics.—4. A Bishop celebrating a marriage ; the groom (with 
two men behind him) putting the ring on the finger of the bride, 
behind whom are two maids.— 5. A prisoner, with his hands tied, 
with an accuser on his right and a woman on his left, is brought before 
a seated bishop.—A good many grotesque figures of animals are 
found in the pen and ink-decoration, chiefly blue and red, that borders 
each column of the text on every page.

The first Miniature represents a seated Pope receiving a book from 
a kneeling monk behind whom two Cardinals are standing, on a 
chequered background. The second has four figures of three monks and 
a nun discussing, on a diapered background. The third has three 
figures, a priest preparing the chalice, and another priest expelling a 
woman from the chamber, on diapered grounds. The fourth is a 
Marriage, with five figures on a diapered ground. The fifth represents 
a Bishop hearing the complaint of one black monk against another. 

There is a good deal of fine grotesque work in and about the 
illuminated initials; from which an interesting grotesque alphabet 
might be formed.

13 GREGORII IX DECRETALES cum Glossa. Folio, 

fine MS. on vellum in quadruple columns; 326 leaves , 
with a great number of illuminated and painted initials , but 
wanting the first five leaves and having , therefore , only four 
exquisite Miniatures painted in delicate French style on 
diapered grounds; bds. covered with modern stamped pig- 
skin About 1300 78 0 0 

The Initials and the Miniatures are of purely French execution. 

The writing of the book itself was done in Italy about 1300. The four 
miniatures are : 2, Discussion of Monks and Nuns; 3, nine figures of 
Clerics; 4, a picture of a Marriage with nine figures; 5, a Bishop 
receiving a complaint, with nine figures. All are on diapered 
grounds. The large illuminated initials are strikingly fine work 
throughout the book.

two columns of text written within two columns of gloss; 
with a great quantity of handsome painted initials, three 
VERY LARGE MINIATURES AND TEN SMALL ONES, painted 
by a contemporary of Giotto; in wooden boards partly 
covered with leather About 1300-1310 85 0 0 


The pictures are remarkable examples of early Italian art. They 
represent the first period of emancipation from the sombre colouring 
of the thirteenth century. Some parts of the burnished gold ground 
have flaked away; but the designs and figures are untouched. The 
first Miniature represents the Pope enthroned listening to the argu¬ 
ments of two ecclesiastics who kneel while they urge their cases, four 
assessors sitting on each side of the Pope. 2, 3. Two initials in the 
text below contain half-length figures. The fourth represents Christ 
enthroned, two angels behind Him, three seated figures on each side 
of Him (including Apostles), and below Him two men kneeling in 
prayer. The fifth is the figure of a hooded doctor enclosed in an initial. 
The sixth is a bishop in council receiving a roll from a kneeling monk ; 
the seventh, below this, is a reading figure within an initial. The 
eighth contains thirteen figures all kneeling except the celebrant who 
lifts the holy bread above the altar. The ninth is a bust in an initial 


below. The tenth represents a wedding, the groom just placing the 
ring on his bride’s finger, with five other figures. The eleventh is a 
bust in an initial below. The twelfth contains six figures and shows

A bright and handsome volume from the banks of the Arno, which 
is probably a few years earlier than 1418, and cannot be later. The 
large border on the first page of text contains the arms of Popoleschi 
of Florence, with an in-escutcheon which represents probably the 
marriage of a daughter and the alliance of a new family. The first 
miniature represents a doctor with red hood and gown, lined with 
white, and having green sleeves, writing with scholars beneath him.—

This valuable Index to the yet unpublished Yocabularium of 
Uguccio, is in itself an important mediaeval Latin Dictionary. It gives 
the explanation of nearly 30,000 words.—The compiler was Jacob son 
of Isaac, a Paduan physician, in 1324; and the copy was made in 
1426 by Zuan, or Giovan di Silvestro di Luxa, commander of the 
citadel of Cattaro. The Doge Foscaro, to whom it is dedicated, was 
afterwards deposed.

This is a continuation of the author’s former work on Le Ceramiche e Maioliche 
Faentine, which carried the history to the beginning of the sixteenth century. In the 
Rinascimento he begins with the later part of the fifteenth century, and carries his 
history down to the seventeenth. 

“ The illustrations, which occupy the second volume, are admirable, mostly drawn 
directly from the objects themselves and successfully executed in chromo-lithography. 

“ The book is eminently Faentine, written by a learned professor of that city, by 
whose able hand the drawings were also made, printed, illustrated, and published by 
a Faentine firm, it does honour in itself to the old Aemilian city. The first volume 
containing the printed Texts is divided into, firstly, the author’s Rayione di questo 
secondo volume, thus implying that this work should be considered as a second volume 
to that published in 1889. 

“ To this follows a descriptive account of such pieces of wares, attributed by the 
author to the potteries of Faenza, as he had been able to examine in the museums and 
private collections of Northern Italy and Tuscany. These were especially visited 
by him under direction of the Minister of Public Instruction, with a view to a careful 
study and elucidation of the subject.”— C. D. E. Fortnum, The Nineteenth Century , 
February, 1899. 

Armour: 

30 ALBUM of JACOBE, Master Workman at the Armoury , Greenwich, 
1590, 35 coloured plates , in facsimile , by W. Griggs , on handmade paper 
in demy folio, with Monograph by Viscount Dillon, f.s.a. 

For Subscribers 

It is proposed to publish in facsimile the above-mentioned work as a valuable 
record of the Armourer’s art as practised in England in the second half of the sixteenth 
century. 

The Album contains drawings in ink and colours of suits of armour made by 
this master for several of the most famous courtiers and soldiers of the reign of 
Elizabeth. 

Amongst these are suits for the Dukes of Finland and Norfolk ; the Earls of 
Leicester, Sussex, Worcester, etc.; Lord Scrope; Sir John Smith, Sir Henry Lee, 
Sir C. Hatton, etc. 

Special interest attaches to this MS. as it formerly belonged to the Harleian 
Library, and of the suits of armour therein figured some of the finest are still in 
existence. Of these the following may be mentioned :—Earl of Pembroke, k.g. now at 
Wilton ; George, Earl of Cumberland, at Hothfield ; Sir Christopher Hatton, sold last 
year from the Spitzer collection for £2080; Sir Henry Lee, k.q. Master of the 
Armoury to Queen Elizabeth and James I, now in the ball of the Armourers’ and 
Braziers’ Company ; the Earl of Worcester, in the Tower of London. 

Although armour in England was, at the time referred to, fast disappearing 
from use, the suits shown in the work were all of a high class of workmanship and 
remarkable for their excellence, no less than interesting as the personal and intimate 
panoply of some of the brightest stars of the golden age of Elizabeth. 

It is hoped that the publication of this unique MS. may lead to the identifi¬ 
cation of other suits and portions of armour still scattered through the country, ar d 
as yet not correctly connected with famous names in English history. 

The reproductions will be accompanied by a short note on the MS. and brief 
notices of the individuals for whom the suits were made.

Armour, continued :— 

32 MEi RICK (S. R.) Critical Inquiry into ANTIENT ARMOUR, as it 

existed in Europe, but particularly in England, from the Norman Con¬ 
quest to the Reign of Charles II, Second [and Best] Edition, corrected 
and enlarged [by the Author himself, with the assistance of Literary 
and Antiquarian Friends (Albert Way, etc.)], 3 vols. atlas 4to., illus¬ 
trated by more than 100 plates, splendidly illuminated, mostly in gold 
and silver, also a new plate of the Tournament of Locks and Keys (pub. 
at £21.), half red morocco extra , appropriately tooled 1842 

The first edition of this work, published in 1824, was printed without the super¬ 
vision of Sir Samuel Meyrick, who always repudiated it as full of faults, especially in 
the colouring. Every leaf and plate of the present edition was submitted to his cor¬ 
rection, and it was published with his entire approval. 

“This most superb Archaeological work is animated with numerous novelties, 
curious and historical disquisitions, and brilliant and recondite learning—Learning 
going to Court in the full rich costume of the Order of the Garter—Plates as fine as 
the monuments of Westminster Abbey. Really and truly the work is admirably 
executed, and deserves every eulogy."— Edinb. Review. 

“ While the splendour of the decorations of this work is well calculated to excite 
curiosity, the novel character of its contents, the very curions extracts from the rare 
MSS. in which it abounds, and the pleasing manner in which the author's antiquarian 
researches are prosecuted, will tempt many who take up the book in idleness to peruse 
it with care. No previous work can be compared in point of extent, arrangement, 
science, or utility, with the one now in question. 1st. It for the first time supplies to 
our Schools of Art correct and ascertained data for costume, in its noblest and most 
important branch—historical painting. 2nd. It affords a simple, clear, and most 
conclusive elucidation of a great number of passages in our great dramatic poets— 
aye, and in the works of those of Greece and Rome—against which commentators 
and scholiasts have been trying their wits for centuries. 3rd. It throws a flood of 
light upon the manners, usages, and sports of our ancestors, from the time of the 
Anglo-Saxons down to the reign of Charles the Second. And, lastly, it at once 
removes a vast number of idle traditions and ingenious fables, which one compiler of 
history, copying from another, has succeeded in transmitting through the lapse of four 
or five hundred years."— Edinb. Review.

Samuel Bush Meyrick , half morocco y £4. 4 s ; or uniform with the larger 
work in three volumes 1854 

“We should imagine that the possessors of Dr. Meyrick’s former great work would 
eagerly add Mr. Skelton's as a suitable illustration. Indeed, they are essential com¬ 
panions. In the first they have the history of Arms and Armour; in the second work 
engravings of all the details.”— Gentleman's Magazine.

165 BLAKE (William) Book of The!, 4to. consisting of 7 engraved pages , 

designed and coloured BY Blake, uncut, in paper cover , preserved in 
a morocco case, by Riviere 1789 

‘* A strange mystical allegory, fall of tender beauty and enigmatical meaning. 
The designs are of the utmost sweetness ; Bimple, expressive, grand ; the colour slight, 
but pore and tender.”— Qilchrist , Vol. I, page 76. 

Tuk copy possesses exceptional interest prom the pact that it was 
Stothard’s ; donbtless presented to him by Blake, as the two Artists were on terms 
of warm friendship in 1789. In fact Gilchrist states (vol. I, p. 77) I may mention,, 
in corroboration of a previous assertion of Stothard’s obligations as a designer to Blake, 
that the copy of Thel formerly Stothard’s bears evidence of familiar use on his part, 
in broken edges and the marks of a painter’s oily fingers.” The broken edges and the 
oily finger marks still remain in evidence, and the following old pencil note is on the 
cover, “ Stothard’s copy. Bought of Hamilton, 1856.” The Gaisford copy, with cut 
edges, realized £29.

Mr. William Muir’s Facsimiles of the Works of Wm. Blake: 

Only 60 copies of each Book have been produced. 

Mr. Muir does not print with type. He works by methods as like those of Blake 
himself ns the need of faithfnlly following- Blake’s own results will permit. Almost 
all the labour is hand work, and the result has all that charm which belongs to hand 
work alone. 

172 THE SONGS OF INNOCENCE, 1789, small 8vo. with margin to quarto 

size, all chastely coloured from the very early copy given by Blake to 
Flaxman 0 

173 THE SONGS OF EXPERIENCE, 1794, uniform with the above, all 

richly coloured from a choice copy in the British Museum, sewed 5 

The Songs of Innocence and of Experience form perhaps the most beautiful book 
that has ever been produced in England. 

174 Tub Book of Thel, sd. 1 

“This is even finer and more delicate in colouring and touch than ‘The Visions of 
the Daughters of Albion.’ Of course every copy thus produced may—indeed must— 
differ from the others. Nothing coaid be better than that before us.”— Athenaeum, 
August 23rd, 1884. 

175 THE VISIONS OF THE DAUGHTERS OF ALBION, sd. 2 

“We con hardly expect to see finer transcripts of the plates in any published 
form. Only a draughtsman of very choice skill could famish a better copy of the 
whole work than that before us. The reproduction of the outlines is simply perfect; 
the colours are repeated with vigour and delicacy, and lack only some of the parity of 
Blake’s own handiwork. The process of colouring snch copies by hand is the only one 
which promises fortunate results.”— Athenaeum, August 16th, 1884. 

176 THE MARRIAGE OF HEAVEN AND HELL, 4to. coloured, from 

the Beckford copy 1885 0 

177 MILTON, sd. £8; or morocco extra 10 

(This book contains some of Blake’s finest plates. Its reproduction has required 
two years’ very tedious work.) 

“Has been made from the very choice example in the British Mnsenm, and, 
having compared the copy sent to ns with its original, we are glad to bear witness to 
its remarkable excellence and rare fidelity. Among the choicest and most faithful 
pages are the famous and noble concluding design, ‘To go forth to the great harvest 
of the Nations,’ and the group of sleepers on plate 38, over whom the eagle hovers. 

Both happily reproduce that peculiar colouration which is an element of Blake’B poetic 
design. The beautiful little figures in the margins of the pages retain all or nearly all 
the spirit of Blake.”— Athenaeum, June 26tb, 1886.

“The exact extent of hand*work in Blake^s poems and poetic books is still a 


problem. The marvellous designs in the fine copy of 4 The Song of Los ’ in the 
British Museum greatly exercised the criticism of D. G. Rossetti; they could not, he 
admitted, be absolutely the work of Blake’s band ; yet he was unable to detect the 
auxiliary process employed by the artist. When Mr. Muir undertakes 4 The Song of 
Los/ we trust that he and his able fellow-labourers will consult the British Museum 
example.”— Saturday Review, Augus*29th, 1885.

44 Messrs. Ellis and Yeats, in a most comprehensive work in three volumes, including 
additional biographical particulars and copious illustrations, which comprise the pre¬ 
viously unpublished ‘Vala/ have striven to present Blake's mysticism as a coherent 
system of thought. ”— Dr. Richard Qamett. 

“It cannot be said that Messrs. Ellis and Yeats have entirely overcome the 
difficulties of reproduction ; yet, perhaps, for those unable to obtain access to the copies 
tinted by the artist, or even to the uncoloured plates in the original edition, nothing so 
well displays the wilder and more weird aspects of bis genius as the reprints in their 
third volume, especially those from Jerusalem**—Dr. Richard Qamett. 

44 4 On the day of his death,’ quotes Gilchrist, the biographer of William Blake, 4 he 
composed and uttered songs to his Maker, so sweetly to the ear of his Catherine that, 
when she stood to hear him, he, looking upon her most affectionately, said : 44 My 
beloved 1 they are not mine. No I they are not mine l ** * It is interesting to find in 
the splendid 4 Works of William Blake,' by E. J. Ellis and W. B. Yeats (just published 
by Mr. Bernard Quaritch), that Blake often extemporized music to his songs in the 
freedom of social life : 4 We would give much now for a single note of these melodies. 

It is said that musicians were present who actually took down the airs, but valuable as 
the merest scraps of such records would be to-day, they roust be considered as hopelessly 
lost. One result remains at least. The reader of Blake's mystic poems is able to believe 
that, when he finds music spoken of, it is not alluded to for mere literary effect. Blake 
was really what too many poets are called by mere courtesy and conventionality—a 
bard. He himself claimed the title. The talent never left him. It was his last source 
of happiness on his death-bed.' Time must tell whether the records of Blake's extem¬ 
porized music are 4 hopelessly lost.' There is no need to despair. What would one 
give for a few phrases of song from the wonderful man who wrote, in a barren age of 
English poetry, 4 The Songs of Innocence and Experience’ ? ''—Joseph Bennett, in 
an article 44 Music of the Day." Daily Telegraph, February 4th, 1893.

A rare and very early example of the first Cologne press, to which Holtrop assigns 
the date of 1467. —The first, twenty-third, and twenty-fourth leaves are blank. The 
mark which indicates that a word is broken at the end of a line is a little oblique stroke 
outside the limit of the regular press-work. This custom was not used by Zell after 
1467. On the other hand, in the character for ho, the curve of the h comes below the 
line, and this form was not used before 1466. Consequently the date may be Bet 
precisely in 1467.

A great deal of interest has been excited by the result of these diggings, and large 
discussions have taken place upon the subject. Here for the first time the public is put 
in possession of the investigator’s full account, with all his theories and condasioos, and 
the illustrated pieces of evidence on which they are founded. 

Embroidery. Shortly will be ready a new book on Embroidery. It will 
be the combined work of Mr. Lewis F. Day, who is just completing 
a course of lectures on the subject at the Royal Institution, and of 
Miss Mary Buckle, an accomplished embroideress, and teacher of the 
Art. Its scope is practical, and it is addressed to all interested iu 
embroidery and embroidery design. It will be fully illustrated by 
reproductions of needlework on a scale large enough to show the 
stitch, and the artistic and technical sides of the art will be treated 
with equal thoroughness.

giving reproductions of the 99 superb Drawings of full-length Costume 
figures, with an illustrated descriptive text by Sidney Colvin, Keeper of 
the Prints in the British Museum. Cloth , £10. 10$; or, elegantly 
bound in pigskin September , 1898 

4 ‘ The Keeper of the Prints at the British Museum, Mr. Sidney Colvin, has collected 
a variety of evidence to prove that the artist in question was the famous Florentine 
goldsmith, Maso Finiguera, and his reasons for this ascription are set out in the critical 
and descriptive text which he has provided for the album of full-sized facsimile 
reproductions of Finiguera’s work, which Mr. Bernard Quaritch will shortly publish. 
The collotype plates have been produced under the superintendence of Dr. Lippmann, 
at (he Imperial Press of Berlin, while, in addition to the above reproductions, there will 
be about as many subsidiary illustrations in the text, executed by Messrs. W. H. Ward 
and Co. These smaller pictures are taken partly from contemporary works of 
sculpture, painting, and architectural decoration, selected in order to illustrate the 
special artistic influences which surrounded and inspired the Master of the Chronicle 
Series, partly from certain drawings and engravings which can be proved or surmised 
to be by bis own hand. 0 —The Mon'ning Post. 

“The whole of the drawings themselves are admirably reproduced in photographic 
facsimile, the work having been done by the Imperial Press in Berlin, under the super¬ 
intendence of Dr. Lippmann. The book is to be welcomed as a serious and important 
contribution to the history of art. Primarily indeed it is merely an attempt to fix the 
authorship of certain drawings, but incidentally it calls back to life an artist who bad 
almost faded into myth, while it throws new light upon many sides of the artistic activity 
of Florence at the most interesting moment of her history.”— The Times, October 
I3tli, 1898. 

“ The thinks of all students of Florentine art are due to Mr. Colvin for having

once and for all defined, not only the real nature of these drawings and engravings, but 
also the character of Finiguerra as an artist, about whom has grown up so vast a mass 
of obsolete and erroneous literature. Not less admirable are the facsimiles of the 
Chronicle, than which nothing could be better done. Now charming, now naive, 
decorative or amusing, these drawings illustrate, in a hundred different ways, the 
popular mind and the historical notions of the ‘ Mcrcato ’ of Florence during the 
middle of the fifteenth century. To the student of manners they present an inexhaust¬ 
ible storehouse of forgotten lore. As works of art they are facile and floridly 
inventive.”— Saturday Review, December 17th, 1898.

w A remarkable ceremony was performed at the meeting of the * Worshipful Company 
of Gardeners/on Thursday last, in the Grafton Gallery, in the bestowal of the freedom 
of the guild upon a young lady. The statement might seem curious were it not that 
the young lady was Miss Alicia Am hurst, daughter of Lord Amherst, of Hackney, 
whoee new book on the History of Gardening in England has won for her celebrity 
as the chief authority on the subject. Even os to the records of the Company itself, 
Miss Amherst probably knew a great deal more than any of the officers who called the 
meeting in her honour. At least, they will admit that much of their early history (in 
the time of James I) was made clearer to them by her book, which has indeed achieved 
a success so sudden and so great (considering the nature of its subject) as to assume it 
a permanent place in English literature .”—The World.

RARE AND VALUABLE BOOKS 


29 


280 Hewitt (J.). Ancient Armour and Weapons in Europe, 3 vols., 8vo., with 

numerous cuts ; cloth 1855-60 

A valuable work dealing with the armour used by European countries, from the 
iron period of the Northern nations to the end of the 17 th century. 

281 HOLBEIN. Imitation of Original Drawings by HANS HOLBEIN, in 

the Collection of His Majesty, for the Portraits of Illustrious 
Persons of the Court of Henry VIII, with Biographical Tracts [by 
E. Lodge], published by J. Chamberlaine, atlas folio, the complete set 
of 94 portraits (on 93 plates ), engraved by Bartolozzi, untinted Proofs 
before Letters on India Paper, half red morocco , gilt tops , uncut , very 
rare 1792 

The great delicacy of the engraving, which in the ordinary copies is obscured 
by the colouring, is only shewn in the untinted proof impressions. 

It is very rarely indeed a set like this occurs iu the market. From their rarity 

1 conclude that these untinted Proofs before letters were not published for sale. 

282 HOUGHTON GALLERY. A Set of Prints engraved after the most 

capital Paintings in the Collection of H.I.M. Catherine II, Empress 
of Russia, late in the possession of the Earl of Orford, at Houghton in 
Norfolk. 2 vols., atlas folio, with 2 engraved titles and 1 dedication 
each containing a vignette, portraits of Catherine II and Sir Robert 
Walpole , and 129 superb line engravings and mezzotints of the earliest 
state, all , with but one or two exceptions, having the full margins ; old 
russia extra , joints , gilt edges; with the bookplates , and from the library , 
of John Toumeley, of Towneley, Lancashire 1788 

This is the work as first published ; two, if not more, issues were subsequently 
made. The later copies contain some plans and views of Houghton Hall, which are 
not included in this earliest issue, but being merely architectural, they are of little 
importance. 

283 Houghton Gallery. 2 vols., atlas folio, a copy (containing the 28 plans 

and view of Houghton Hall) of the original issue, the majority of th° 
plates with the full margins, the others mounted ; old russia extra 1788 

284 Houghton Gallery. 2 vols. in 1, atlas folio, half red morocco, uncut ; or 

in 2 vols., red morocco extra, gilt edges 1788 

In consequence of the freshness of the coppers, caused by the under-printing of the 
original issue, the 6uperb mezzotints which have long been esteemed as being the very 
finest of their kind, have not deteriorated to any appreciable extent in this later issue. 

The reprehensible practice indulged in by certain dealers of breaking up copies for 
the sake of the separate prints, tends to make the complete work more and more 
valuable. 

285 JAMIESON (Mrs.) Sacred and Legendary Art. 2 vols. 1848 

- Legends of the Monastic Orders, as represented in the Fine 

Arts 1850 

- Legends of tbe Madonna, as represented in the Fine Arts 1852

2 vols. 1864 

- together, 6 vols. sq. 8vo., First Editions, with beautiful impressions 

of the many choice illustrations; cloth, uncut 1848-64 

Had Mrs. Jamieson lived longer, doubtless she would have added to this beautiful 
series. Owing to her death, the History of Our Lord was completed by Lady Eastlake.

322 POLYCHROMATIC MASTERPIECES of Monumental Art in Italy, 

from the Fifth to the Sixteenth Centuries, represented by Twelve 
Perspective Views in Coloured Plates. By Henry Rohler, Hanover; 

No. 1 1899 1 

This Work, of which the first number only is published, is one of the most 
charming on Architecture and Art yet placed before the public. The volume is being 
issued in six parts, each containing two large exquisitely coloured chromolithographs, 
executed in the finest style of workmanship, representing, when complete, twelve 
masterpieces of Italy ; and, judging from the specimen number, each plate is, from 
a financial point of view, worth more than the subscription. The letterpress is in 
English, German, French and Italian, and printed on India proof paper—in fact, the 
printing, paper, colouring, and artistic finish of the whole work is as near perfection as 
possible.

an exact facsimile of the MS., 264 pp. with all the Miniatures (of which 
there are some hundreds ) reproduced in tlieir proper colours; hf. bd. 

Madrid, 1881 2 16 l 

The original MS. is in the Escuri&l. It was translated into Castilian from Arabic 
sources in the years 1276-1279, by order of Alfonso the Wise, and contains a descrip¬ 
tion of the virtues of Stones, of which 360 are treated. The writing and the 
miniatures are beautiful examples of thirteenth century art of very high order; and 
the text is a philological monument showing the Castilian language in its earliest 
polished state.—The MS. was in the sixteenth century in the possession of Diego de 
Mendoza, and after his death came into the hands of Philip II, who put it in the 
Escurial. The artistic reproduction was done by Don Antonio Selfa.

359 - the same, a magnificent copy in maroon morocco super-extra, joints, 

gilt edges, by Zaehnsdorf 1855-64 16 0 

One of the most magnificent books on the Art-Monuments of Spain, and probably 
superior to any other in the accuracy and learning of its author. The aeries of illus¬ 
trations was selected from works of art which were excellent by reason of their 
historical character or the beauty of their execution. Only 275 copies were printed, of 
which about 150 were absorbed by subscribers amongst the aristocracy of Spain. The 
book may therefore be regarded as virtually unpublished, and as likely before long, in 
consequence of its intrinsic worth and the short supply of copies, to beoome a costly 
rarity. 

“His great work, the‘ Iconografia Espanola,’ published in 1855 and 1864,contains 
seventy-four * portraits, statues,and mausoleums/ dating ‘from the eleventh to the seven¬ 
teenth centuries.’ Not only the original drawings, but the text in Spanish and French, 
was his own work. Amongst the gems of this collection may be named the bas-reliefs of 
Charles V and his Empress, attributed by Cean Bermudez to Fompeo Leoni, and now 
in the Museum at Madrid; portraits of Philip II when young, and in his old age ; the 
unhappy Don Carlos, Don Juan de Austria, Philip’s wives, and the famous ‘ one-eyed ’ 

Princess of Eboli. That of H6rnan Cortes is exquisitely finished. He executed several. 
copies of portraits after Goya, which have never been published, notably that of the 
famous Andalusian beauty ( La Duquesa de Alva.’ The mantilla, maja jacket, short black 
lace dress, silk stockings, and high-heeled shoes indicate the provincial costume of the 
* duchess of the period ’ to perfection. That of Maria Luisa, the less beautiful and 
austere wife of Charles IH, indicates Goya's character. He seems never to have 
flattered his sitters, even when nature had been gracious to them. Maria Luisa de 
Bor bon, Duchess of San Fernando, figures in an empire dress, with a head-gear of 
feathers; and albeit nature had forgotten to favour her, the wayward artist painted 
her as she lived, plain and dowdy.”— Athenmum, April 10th, 1880.

Although so little known, owing to their not being exposed for exhibition, the 
collection of Tapestries in the possession of the Spanish Crown t is one of the finest in 
Europe. Many of those represented here have evidently been carefully folded and 
stored. 

The majority of the examples are early 16th century Dutch and Italian work, the 
latter being marked by exceptional beauty and richness. There are also a few 
specimens of French and Spanish work of the middle and end of last century.

East India Company : The Register of Letters of the Governor 

and Company of Merchants of London trading into the East Indies, 
edited by Sir Geoege Biedwood (U503-1618), 8vo. above 500 pp., cloth , 


£2. 2s 

This important contribution to the 
History of English enterprise in the East 
is very nearly out of print; only 210 copies 
were printed for sale. 

44 It is customary to say of a book such 
as this that it is more interesting than any 
novel, if this volume of correspondence 
may not be to that extent enthralling to 
the majority, to the few who are interested 
in the extremely picturesque beginnings of 
our Indian Empire it will be found most 
fascinating. Nor could it have fallen into 
better hands for editing than into those of 
Sir George Bird wood. Briefly, it is * The 
Register of Letters, etc.,* of the Governor 
and Company of Merchants of London 
trading into the East Indies. It is the 
first Letter-Book and Register of the 
4 London,’ or * Old ’ East India Com¬ 
pany, and its value lies in the early date 
and value of the documents which it con¬ 
tains. It reveals the manner in which the 
Company grew into importance from its 
very earliest stages, because of the letters 
which it contains over one-fourth are of 
the first six years (1600 to 1606) of the 
existence of 4 The London East India 
Company,’ usually called 4 The Old East 
India Company.* Covering this period 
thero are, according to Sir George Bird- 
wood, only fifty-four original manuscripts 
in the India Office, and of this number 
forty-eight are here included. They carry 
the history of the Company on in unin¬ 
terrupted sequence from the formation of 
the 4 London ’ Company, in 1600, down 
to its absorption in the * English Company 
trading to the East Indies * in 1709, a 
period which Sir George Birdwood divides 
into three well-marked subperiods, which 
may be quoted as showing what few people 
understand—viz. the different associations 
which are vaguely grouped together as the 
4 East India Company. The first, from 
1600 to 1623, the date of the 4 Massacre of 
Amboyna,* during which the Company 
pushed its trade in the East Indies under 
the greatest difficulties, but without excit¬ 
ing much popular attention; the second, 
from 1623 to 1660, during which, partly in 
consequence of the national solicitude 
aroused by the massacre of the Company’s 
agents at Amboyna, a geneal competition 
was rapidly developed throughout the 
country for a participation in the commerce 
of the East Indies j and the third and last, 


1890 

| from 1600 to 1709, during which this 
i disastrous rivalry at length resulted in the 
amalgamation of the 4 London ’ or 4 Old,* 
and the ‘English’ or 4 New,’Companies, 
in the 4 United Company of Merchants of 
England trading into the East Indies,’ 
commonly known as 4 The Honourable 
| East India Company,’ whose great com¬ 
mercial empire was sequestrated to the 
British Crown in 1868. Incidentally, apart 
| from the insight which they give into the 
commercial transactions of the day, these 
| letters give a most delightful insight into 
I the relations which existed between the 
Company and its employes, one of whom 
writes home most pathetically to tell how 
business suffers through his having fallen 
I under the influence of some dark-eyed 
| Eastern beauty. In fact, throughout the 
I letters show a strong, even devout, sense of 
1 the responsibility which Company and 
servants alike felt in each others welfare, 
for at the time of its foundation the feudal 
traditions of the affiliation of servants to 
their masters had scarcely become obsolete 
in England. Sir George Birdwood would 
I like to see a Walter Besaut make this 
| period the background for a series of his¬ 
torical stories, and it needs little or no 
effort of the imagination to see how 
I picturesque a setting might be made ; for, 

1 apart from the romance which is always 
supposed to cloud about Oriental countries 
I and doings, there is something which lends 
| itself well to romantic treatment in these 
typical Englishmen of the period implanted 
I in the midst of such surroundings—rather 
susceptible, very pious, and laboriously 
conscientious, keeping open house and table 
for the entertainment of passing European 
travellers, who afterwards abused them 
for their extravagant hospitality. Every 
credit is due to the editor, and also to the 
publisher, for the admirable way in which 
the book has been produced, especially 
I when it is remembered that it could only 
have been produced from public-spirited 
motives, and at a financial loss.”— The 
Graphic, April 16th, 1893. 

“ This first letter-book 4 of the Company 
of Merchants of London trading into the 
j East Indies * presents a life-like picture of 
the manners, customs, thoughts, feelings, 
and aspirations of our countrymen in the 
| days of Elizabeth and James I.”— The 
i Athenaeum, May 27th, 1893.

This Series commences with the three illustrations to IL MONTE 
SANCTO DI DIO, published at Florence in 1477, which have been 
assigned to Baccio Baldini, executed from designs by SANDRO BOTTI¬ 
CELLI, followed by 

The twenty illustrations to the DIYINA COMEDIA of DANTE, which 
have also been assigned to the same artists, and were published by Landino 
at Florence in 1481. 

The six engravings to the TRIUMPHS of PETRARCH, attributed by

Falconry : habting’s bibliotheca accipitbabia: a

Critical Notes, Glossary and Polyglott Vocabulary, by James 
Edmund Harting, Librarian to the Linnean Society of London , 1 vol. 8vo. 
viii and 254 pp. with 16 plates of famous Falconers, the frontispiece in 
colours , Boxburghe , subscription price , £1. 11s GJ 1891 

Only 300 copies are printed. 

Falconry, like other Field Sports, has its literature. It would be strange if it were not ao ; 
for, on tnrning over the pages of the world’s history, it is apparent that for centuries it has 
played a conspicuous part amongst the diversions of people of all nations. 

But the literature of the subject has been much neglected. The older treatises in all 
languages have become scarce and costly, and of the rest the booksellers are unable to supply, or 
even to name, a tithe of them. 

This, perhaps, is partly due to the cireumstances that ne Bibliography of Falconry having 
any claim to completeness exists. 


Fitzgerald (Edward) Portrait of the Translator of the 
Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, etched by Costello, 2s 6d 1886 

Paorassoa Cowell writes as follows : 

“ Cambridge, April 3 rd , 1886. 

Mr Dear Sir,—-I am very much obliged to you for the portrait of Edward Fitzgerald 
which you have kindly sent me. The portrait vividly brings back my dear old Friend to me. 
We shall never look upon his like again. “ I remain, yours sincerely, E. B. COWELL.” 


Gilbert (William) of Colchester , Physician of London , on the 

LOADSTONE and MAGNETIC BODIES, and on the great magnet of the 
Earth. A new physiology demonstrated with many argumeuts and 
experiments. A translation by P. Flkuby Mottklay, 8vo. portrait , 
figures, and numerous facsimiles, cloth , 1 7s 6d New York and London , 1893 


The translation De Magnete has been a task of no ordinary difficulty; it has brought up 
problems innumerable, the solution of which has involved much laborious research—as the result 
was meant to be a clear and competent presentation of the author in idiomatic English, and not 
merely a substitution of English words for Latin. Nor would I have ventured to appear as the 
English interpreter of the great Gilbert, “ father of the Magnetic philosophy,” but for the hearty 
encouragement and very material aid, in translating and otherwise, extended by many literary 
and scientific friends, amongst whom must be especially mentioned Mr. Joseph Fitzgerald, Mr. 
E. McMillan, Mr. Josepy Wetzler, Dr. Joseph V. Livingstone, Hon. Park Benjamin, and Prof. 
Alfred H. Mayer. I am likewise indebted to Prof. Ckas. Sanders Pierce, to Mr. Latfmer 
Clark, F.R.8., to Dr. Isaac H. Hall, and to Dr. Charlton T. Lewis for valuable suggestions as to 
the general treatment of the work ; and, in the word of the celebrated mathematician, Edward 
Wright, I doubt not that our united efforts “ will find the heartiest approval among all 
intellectual men and children of the magnetic science.” 

“The year 1600,” observes the English historian Henry Hallam, *• was the first in which 
England produced a remarkable work in Physical Science ; but this was one sufficient to raise a 
lasting reputation for its author. Gilbert, a physician, in bis treatise on the Magnet, not only 
collected all the knowledge which others possessed on the subject, but became at once the 
father of experimental philosophy in this island ; and, by a singular felicity and acuteness of 
genius, the founder of theories, which have been revived after a lapse of ages, and are almost 
received into the creed of Science. . . . Gilbert was one of the earliest Copemicans—at least as 
to the rotation of the earth—and, with his usual sagacity, inferred, before the invention of the 
telescope, that there are a multitude of fixed stars beyond the reach of our vision.” 

While Dr. Whewell observes that “ Gilbert’s work contains all the fundamental facts of the 
science, so fully examined, indeed, that even at this day we have very little to add to them,” Dr. 
Thomas Thomson says that De Magnete “ is one of the finest examples of inductive philosophy 
that has ever been presented to the world.” Poggendorff, from whose “ Geschichte der 
Physik ” (page 286) this is extracted, calls Gilbert “ the Galileo of Magnetism.” By Dr. Priestley 
be was named “ the father of modern electricity.*’ 

In an article written not long since, Mr. Conrad W. Ceoke, of London, notes the high 
opinion of Gilbert’s work entertained—more particularly by Nathaniel Carpenter, William 
Barlowe, Francis Bacon, Galileo, aud Humboldt, and he adds : “ There is abundant testimony 
extant that this De Magnete of Gilbert’s produced a profound sensation, not only in this 
coontry bat throughout the then civilized world ; and it is a singularly curious fact that the 
brilliancy of a reputation so great and so original should have been allowed io subsequent 
generations to have been lost sight of.”— Preface.

Gruner’s Italian Frescoes. An almost unique copy, 

all the frescoes coloured by hand, atlas folio, red mor. extra, by 

Bedford , in a leather case, £90. 1854 

This magnificent work is no less valuable to the Architect than to the 
Painter, It does not profess (says the Quarterly Review in an elaborate 
article) to exhibit fresh decorative painting in that highest walk chosen by 
Michael Angelo and Raffaelle (except as a handmaid), but as a purely decora¬ 
tive Art and subservient to Architecture . Owing its very existence to the 
exigencies of the sovereign art, and deriving its appropriate locality, scale and 
effect from the edifice, it no less assists tne Architecture , in return, by its 
arabesques and other tasteful accessories.

Numismatics: 

CUNNINGHAM (Sir Alexander) Coins of the Indo-Sky thians: Sakas 
and Kushana, 5 parts in 1 vol. 8vo. map, 27 plates of Coins, alphabets , etc.; 
cloth, 80s 1893 

This is a collection of six papers printed in tbe Numismatic Chronicle, but here reduced to a 
whole in order to facilitate the attentive study which they demand. Their combination forma the 
most serious and important contribution yet made to the history of the dynasties that ruled in the 
countries between fersia and Sind during a few centuries before and after the Christian era. 
The art in the coins, and much of tbe lettering, is borrowed from the Greek kingdom of Bactria, 
was declining when the Scythian invasions began.

by John Evans, d.c.l., ll.d., d.sc., f.b.s., f.g.s., President of the Society of

KENYON. THE GOLD COINS OF ENGLAND, arranged and described

Coins of England ,” 1 vol. demy 8vo., 218 pp ., and 24 plates, engraved by 
F. J. Lees, Member of the Numismatic Society, Roxburghe, gilt top , 24# 1883 

This work contains a complete account of the English current gold coins, from the earliest 
Saxon times to the present reign, with 200 illustrations, and includes a description of gold coins 
attributed to the first half of the seventh century. It is uniform with the second edition of 
“ Hawkins’s Silver Coins,” and it is hoped that the light which an examination of the gold coins 
throws upon the proper appropriation of the silver, as for instance in the reigns of Henry V and 
VI and of Edward V, together with the information about the history of the coinage which this 
volume contains, may make it acceptable to collectors, even though their cabinets may not 
contain a great number of gold coins. 

HAWKINS’ SILVER COINS OF ENGLAND arranged and described, 
with remarks on British Money, previous to the Saxon Dynasties, 
by E. Hawkins, Keeper of Coins and Antiquities in the British 
Museum, third edition, revised and enlarged by R. Ll. Kenyon, Esq. 
thick 8vo. viii and 508 pp., 55 plates containing figures of about 650 Coins, 
by F. W. Fairholt and F. J. Lees, Roxburghe, 3G# 1887 

“ A third edition having been called for. the text has been carefully revised, and the coins 
found and published during the last ten years have been described in their proper places. Several 
additions have been made to the lists of the mints before tbe Conquest, and some additions aud 
alterations have been made throughout the work. But the most important alteration has been 
in the reign of Edward III, where it is shown that all the coins hitherto attributed to him were 
strnck subsequently to 1361, and that those struck before, during, and after the Treaty of 
Brctigny may be distinguished by the titles inscribed on them ; in accordance with the arrange¬ 
ment adopted by the editor in his book on English Gold Coins. This will clear the way for n 
more satisfactory arrangement than has hitherto been possible of the coins which hare 
been attributed to Edward I and II, but some of w'hich must now' be given to the first half of 
Edward Hi’s reign ; but such a redistribution can only be made after careful examination of n 
very large number of these coins, and for such examination the editor has lately had neither 
time nor opportunity.”— Preface io the Third Edition .

Only 25 copies were printed on Large Paper.

paper issue is uniform with Tcmminck’s Planches Coloriecs, Sclatcr and Slavin’s Exotic 
Ornithology, etc., the Large Paper with the Author’s works in folio, and Gould’s works. 

“ The very peculiar appearance of the majority of the birds contained in this volume, 
as well as the extraordinary habits and structure common to all, which make them to differ 
from other feathered creatures, together with the generally meagre accounts of many of the 
species, only to be met with by searching numerous publications, were the chief reasons 
that induced me to select this family as the subject of my fifth illustrated monograph. 

“ The drawings, the happy results of Mr. Kculeman’s talented pencil, most character¬ 
istically depict the strange forms and attitudes of these curious birds.”— Preface.

Tigers, Leopards, etc. (subscription price £27. 10«), hf morocco, uncut, £24 

1878-83 

The graceful forms and beautifully coloured dress of the living members of the Felidae 
excite the admiration of all who see them, and they afford most attractive subjects for 
pictorial representation. 

One hundred and fifty copies only were printed ; and the Drawings are erased from the 
stones, thus making it impossible to increase the edition. 

The plates of these magnificent works were drawn in the highest style of Art; those 
of the Birds of North America chiefly by the Author, those of the Pitiidae by the Author and 
W. Hart, and those of the Tetraonime, the Phasianidae and Paradiseidas by the celebrated 
Joseph Wolf and J. Smit The colouring has been effected by the best Colourists of London.

different forms of old English compositions which will prove helpful to the right understanding 
of them. There is further a learned description of the original MSS. by Mr. A. Hughes-Hughes. 
The songs and madrigals themselves are charmingly quajnt, and strike upon the ear educated to 
modern music with a strange bnt refreshing simplicity. Perhaps the most noticeable example of 
the songs is 4 In May that lusty season,’ by Thomas Farthing. The accompaniments are ably 
furnished by Dr. U. W. Pearce. The second part of the volume consists of six madrigals and

an instrumental piece by Henry VIII. The original notation of the compositions is given, as 
well as a compressed score for the use of pianists. With one exception—* The farther I go/ by 
William Newark—they are written in three-part counterpoint The progression of consecutive 
fifths and sevenths occurs many times in this music ; but, as the introduction wisely points oat, 
these seeming errors serve bat ‘ to illustrate the experimental nature of the early Polyphonic 
School.’ We cannot resist giving here a quaint remark made by Thomas Morley on the 
madrigals of his day :—* As for the musick it is, next unto that of the Motet, the most artificial, 
and to men of understanding the most delightfull.’ The book before us contains also facsimiles
