HAPPY  NEWS:  A  Center  for  Reformation  and  Renaissance  Studies  is  being  formed 
at  Victoria  on  the  Toronto  campus.  The  aim  is  tc  build  up  a  modest  but 
attractive  research  library.  The  library  will  be  "closed"  like  that  of  the 
Pontifical  Institute.  At  present  there  are  only  a  few  fenced  off  stacks  in  the 
Victoria  Library  and  a  make- shift  office,  but  we  dream  of  &  tasteful  reading- 
room  in  the  not-too-distanc  fi:ture.

We  begin  with  an  Erasmus  collection  of  about  260  volumes,  many  of 
them  sixteenth- cent uiy,  yet  scrappy.  We  will  improve  it  and  build  around  it, 
concentrating  on  certain  humanists  and  informers.  Much  will  be  in  microfilm 
but  there  will  also  be  some  rare  books.  At  the  same  time  we  are  starting  an 
ambitious  reference  collection  for  the  period  1450-17DO.  And  in  order  to  make 
the  library  "useful"  as  soon  as  possible,  there  will  be  smaller  collections 
around  certain  graduate  courses.  As  we  expand,  we  will  of  course  avoid  com- 
peting in  areas  where  the  U.  of  T.  library  is  strong;  e.g.  Italian  drama. 

This  venture  is  being  organized  and  developed  by  a  Managing  Com- 
mittee of  staff -members  of  Victoria  and  Emmanuel  College.   It  has  been  made 
possible  by  a  generous  grant  from  the  Board  of  Regents  of  Victoria  University. 
As  soon  as  we  have  something  real  to  offer,  we  would  naturally  like  to  attract 
further  funds.  We  will  depend  greatly  on  advice  from  knowledgeable  colleagues 
and  librarians,  here  and  elsewhere.  Erasmus  bibliography  is  no  simple  matter. 
We  are  appointing  some  "Senior  Advisers"  and  two  graduate  fellows,  and  will  do 
some  travelling.  But  many  of  you  can  help  us.  Contact  any  member  of  the 
committee:  F.  D.  Hoeniger  (chairman),  J.  W.  Grant  (vice-chairman), 
M.  MacLure  (chairman  of  the  Victoria  library  committee),  E.  Rathe  (Secretary- 
treasurer),  W,  T.  McCready  (committee's  librarian),  W.  0.  Fennell,  J.  E.  Estes. 
We'll  be  glad  to  shew  some  treasures  when  we  acquire  them  to  any  vrtio  may  read 
this.  Fairfax'  Tasso,  Tchemerzine  and  Kuczynski  are  our  beginning.

Trinity  has  an  interesting  group  of  sources  for  English  religious 
history  in  the  l6th  and  17th  centuries.  They  include  translations  of  works 
by  Continental  reformers,  such  as  Luther,  Marlorat,  Martyr  and  Diodati,  and 
works  by  Jewel,  Whitgift  and  William  Perkins.  There  are  anti-Catholic  polemics 
(such  as  An  Oration  and  Sermon  at  Rome  John  Nichols  and  its  RefVitation. 
1581),  and  tracts  against  the  sectaries  (such  as  a  16A4  Infants  Baptizing 
Proved  Lawfull  by  the  Scriptures). 

At  least  18  editions  of  the  Bible  or  parts  thereof  can  be  found 
at  Trinity.  These  include  several  Protestant  Bibles  —  seme  New  Testaments  in 
English,  a  French  Protestant  Bible  of  1566,  and  an  Italian  Protestant  Bible  of 
l607'  An  English  translation  of  the  Bible  prepared  by  the  Catholics  at  the 
English  College  of  Rheims  in  1582  and  several  Latin  Bibles  (four  of  them  incun- 
abula) can  also  be  seen.  A  beautiful  1540  edition  of  the  Psalter  in  Hebrew 
printed  by  Robert  Etienne  would  be  worth  examining  if  only  for  the  l6th 
century  marginalia. 

The  Library  has  a  small  group  of  humanist  editions  of  classical 
authors  —  a  1476  edition  of  Plutarch  in  Latin,  a  1513  edition  of  Aristotle's 
Nicomachean  Ethics  with  l6th-or  17th-century  commentary  in  English  handwritten 
at  the  back,  Lucretius,  Herodian,  Cato  and  Varro.  Ther^  are  a  nimber  of  editions 
of  the  Church  Fathers  —  Augustine,  Gregory  of  Maziance,  Chrysostum  among  others. 

Among  l6th-centary  writers,  Erasmus  is  represented  by  his  edition 
of  Aristotle  in  Greek  ' Basel,  1531)  and  three  volumes  of  Paraphrases  on  the  New 
Testament  (Basel,  1539-40)  as  well  as  later  editions.  These  are  many  folio 

volumes  of  Calvin's  works  printed  in  the  17th  century.     The  Library  also  has 
Grotius*  Opera  Ctnnia. 

The  holdings  in  vernacular  literary  works  by  continental  authors 
are  scanty.  I  myself  came  across  none  in  French  or  German.  There  is  an  in- 
teresting edition  in  Italian  —  the  Dialoghi  del  Sig.  Speron  Speroni.  printed 
in  Venice,  1596. 

There  are  a  few  works  useful  for  the  history  of  science.  They 
include  some  16th-century  editions  of  Euclid,  Regnault's  La  botanique  mise  à 
1^  portée  de  tout  le  monde  (1574),  Gravesande's  Latin  Introduction  to  Newton 
(Leyden,  1721)  and  Newton's  Chronology  (printed  the  year  after  his  death). 

Miss  Beatrice  Saiinders,  the  Librarian,  will  be  glad  to  make 
Trinity's  rare  books  available  to  those  who  want  tc  use  them.  A  phone  call 
ahead  of  time  would  be  appreciatied,  since  most  of  these  books  have  been  placed 
for  safekeeping  in  a  locked  room.  Not  all  of  these  works  are  catalogued  in 
Trinity's  new  catalogue.

Although  primarily  interested  in  the  mediaeval  period,  the  Institute  of 
Mediaeval  Studies  has  the  following  items  in  the  Renaissance  period  not  held 
by  the  University  Library;   seventeen  manuscripts  on  microfilm  of  Petrarch's 
See re turn,  a  complete  set  (1947-  )  of  the  Rivista  di  Storia  della  Chiesa  in  Italia 
with  its  indespensable  bibliography  on  Italian  Church  history  including  Protestant 
materials,  the  Opera  Omnia  (1557)  of  Giovanni  Pico  della  Mirandola,  the  Opera  Omnia 
(Basel,  1567)  of  Pietro  Pomponazzi,  several  sixteenth-century  works  of  Pomponazzi's 
major  antagonist,  Agostino  Nifo  (Niphus),  several  sixteenth-century  editions  of  the 
works  of  Tommaso  de  Vio  (Gaetano),  and  the  complete  works  of  Robert  Bellarmine» 
The  Mediaeval  Institute  library  also  has  a  handsome  facsimile  edition  of  the  Opera 
Omnia  (1702-1710)  of  Erasmus,  which  the  University  of  Toronto  library  has  in  the 
originalo  Finally,  the  only  copy  on  campus  that  I  could  find  of  F„C„  Church's 
fundamental  Italian  Reformers  (1534-1564)  is  in  St,,  Michael's  College  library „ 


■iversity  of  Toronto,  has  approximately  12,000  books.   This  is  one  of  the  largest 
[plrchases  made  by  the  University  Library  in  recent  years.   It  is  a  rich  addition 

io  the  Library's  holdings  in  French  literary,  religious,  political  and  social 
istory  from  the  end  of  the  Middle  Ages  to  the  20th  century.   Included  are  many 
ssential  reference  works  on  French  literature  and  especially  on  French  Protestantism 
I  (such  as  Haag's  La  France  Protestante,  back  issues  of  the  Bulletin  de  la  société 
de  l'histoire  du  protestantisme  français,  Aymon's  Actes  of  the  Synods  and  Hagues, 
I  Synodes  du  Desert,  etc.)  ^ 

Approximately  380  works  in  the  Will  Collection  were  printed  before  1700, 
A  substantial  proportion  of  these  are  edicts,  memoirs,  occasional  pieces  and  religious 
tracts  pertaining  to  the  fortunes  of  French  Protestantism  from  the  outbreak  of  the 
Religious  Wars  through  the  17th  century. 


Paul  Gr end 1er 


The  collection  of  the  late  J.  Stanley  Will,  former  Professor  of  French  at  the 

The  legislative  material  begins  with  a  1559  Mandement  on  suspect  preaching  in 
Paris,  goes  through  numerous  Pacification  and  persecution  edicts  to  a  1657  Arret 
forbidding  Huguenots  to  bury  Catholics  in  their  cemeteries  to  a  1682  Declaration 
forbidding  Protestants  to  leave  France  and  a  I69O  Declaration  on  the  disposal  of 
their  abandoned  goods. 

Among  the  memoirs  and  collections  of  letters  are  the  Memoirs  of  d'Aubigne^ 
Perroniana  et  Thuana,  the  Epistles  of  Isaac  Casaubon,  the  Memoirs  of  Pomponne  de 
Bellievre  and  of  Louis  II  de  Condé, 

The  occasional  pieces  report  and  fight  over  the  issues  of  the  Religious  Wars 
and  Protestant  uprisings  of  the  1620" s„  Louis  Le  Roy's  Exhortation  a\jx  francois 
(1570)  asks  the  French  people  to  live  in  peacej,while  Artus  Desire's  La  Singerie 
des  Huguenots  (1574)  defends  Saint  Bartholomew's  Day»   The  principles  of  the  League 
are  argued  in  the  famous  Dialogue  d- entre  le  Maheustre  et  le  Manaut,  in  the  Apologie 
catholique  contre, , oies  Liguez  (1505)»  in  the  Discours  sur  les  calomnies  imposées 
aux  Princes „ , c Catholiques, Florimond  de  Rémond's  L- Histoire  de  la  Naissance  g  Progrez 
et  Decadence  de  1' Hérésie  and  Simon  Goulart ■ s  Recueil  contenant  les  choses  plus 
mémorables  advenues  sous  la  Ligue  are  only  two  cf  many  historical  works  viewing 
events  from  the  Catholic  or  Protestant  standpoint. 

Of  works  of  religious  sensibility  and  theology,  there  are  relatively  few  in 
the  collection  for  the  l6th  century- -nothing  by  Calvin  and  only  a  few  pieces  by 
Beza  (such  as  an  English  translation  of  his  Sermons  on  the  Song  of  Songs),  On  the 
other  hand  J  the  Collection  includes  Philippe  de  Mornay  s  De  la  vérité  de  la  religion 
chrestienne  (1585)  and  many  17th  century  works  intended  to  convert  the  Huguenots 
or  to  defend  their  faith  against  such  efforts.  The  Jesuit  Cotton's  proposals  and 
Pierre  Du  Moulin' s  answers  are  there.  Anonymous  writirigs  such  as  Instructions 
chrestiennes, , ,ou  toute  la  doctrine  de  l'Eucharistie  est, ,, expliquée  or  L ' examen 
de  soi-mesme  pour  bien  préparer  ^  la  communion  suggest  the  numerous  little  pieces 
on  the  "life  of  the  soul"  in  17th  century  France, 

Though  the  religious-political  materials  on  French  Protestantism  are  the 
largest  coherent  grouping  in  the  Will  Collection  up  to  1700,  other  materials  in  it 
go  way  beyond  this  theme.  There  are  for  the  period  before  I56O  a  small  and  valuable 
group  of  humanist  writings.  For  instance,  two  works  by  Josse  Cllchtove^(De 
Veneratione  Sanctorum  and  De  Vera  Nobilitate)  and  several  works  by  Bude  (including 
his  De  Asse  in  Latin  and  French  summary  and  his  De  Gontemptu  Rerum  Fortuitarum) 
mark  the  first  appearance  of  original  editions  by  these  men  in  the  University  Library, 

The  Collection  also  includes  a  number  of  literary  and  philosophical  works, 
Desperiers,  Desportes,  Du  Bartas,  Gamier,  and  Jodelle  are  here  as  is  a  rare  copjr 
of  Bero^lde  de  Verville's  Apprehensions  spirituelles^  poèmes  (1584)0   Pierre  de 
La  Ramee's  Grammatica  and  Ciceronianus  are  there  as  well  as  Pierre  Charron' s 
De  la  sagesse  in  the  I607  edition,   Seteeral  of  Bodin's  works  can  be  found. 

The  wealth  and  diversity  of  this  collection  Cdn  only  be  hinted  at  here. 
There  are  quite  a  few  books  that  do  not  fit  into  any  of  the  above  categories — -such 
as  Cardan's  De  Subtilitate  or  Palissy's  Discours  admirable  de  la  nature  des  eaux, 
such  as  Guicciardini's  La  Historia  d' Italia  (I565)  or  Bernardino  Lombardi's 
L'Alchimista  (l602). 

Only  about  one-half  of  the  secondary  source  materials  in  the  Will  Collection 
have  been  catalogued  as  yet.  Of  the  works  before  1700  mentioned  here,  most  of  the 
16th  century  materials  are  now  catalogued,  while  a  portion  of  the  17th  century  ones 
are  not,

There  are  also  five  works  of  Calvin,  including  the  Institutions  of  the  Christian 
Religion,  translated  into  English  and  printed  in  London  from  1571  to  1581, 

A  very  large  number  of  works  by  Theodore  de  Beze,  Calvin's  colleague  and 
successor  at  Geneva  and  the  first  rector  of  the  Geneva  Academy^  are  available  in

The  annual  meeting  of  the  council  of  the  Renaissance  Society  of  America  was 
held  in  New  York  January  30,  1965,  with  Professor  Josephine  Waters  Bennett  in  the 
Chair.  The  morning  session  was  devoted  to  business  reports  and  discussion  of  the 
Society's  relation  to  the  American  Council  of  Learned  Societies  (ACLS)  within  the 
framework  of  the  proposed  new  congressional  act  which  will  link  the  Humanities  and 
the  Creative  Arts.  Hotly  debated  were  such  questions  as  citizenship,  loyalty 
oaths  and  so  forth  in  their  ei'fect  on  the  distribution  of  proposed  research  awards. 
Draft  proposals  stipulate  American  citizenship  and  loyalty  oaths  along  with  denial 
of  affiliation  with  any  so-called  subversive  organizations  but  the  Society  un- 
animously endorsed  recommendations  which  would  open  awards  to  residents  as  well  as 
citizens  and  require  no  loyalty  oaths  of  any  kind.

Mr.  J. A.  Molinaro  and  Miss  Diane  Dyer  of  the  Department  of  Italian  and  Hispanic 
Studies  are  preparing  a  bibliography  of  Italian  verse  collections  (from  1500  to 
1800)  in  the  Rare  Book  Room  of  the  University  of  Toronto.   Among  some  of  the  more 
interesting  items  are:  Girolamo  Benivieni,  Opera  (Venetia,  1522)  with  a  commentary 
on  one  of  his  poems  by  Giovanni  Pico  della  Mirandola;  two  editions  of  Petrarch's 
Rime  with  the  commentary  of  Alessandro  Vellutello  (Venetia,  1550  and  1563); 
other  editions  of  Petrarch  by  Girolamo  Ruscelli  (Venetia,  1554)  and  another  edited 
by  Ludovico  Castelvetro  (Basilea,  1582).  There  is  a  sixteenth-century  anthology 
of  Italian  verse  compiled  by  Girolamo  Ruscelli  entitled  Rime  di  diversi  eccellenti 
autori  bresciani  (Venetia,  1554)  and  a  first  edition  of  Luca  Contile,  Rime 
(Venetia,  1560).

In  addition  to  the  Italian  materials  described  in  the  last  Bulletin  by 
Paul  Grendler,  the  Institute  of  Mediaeval  Studies  also  has  the  first  edition  of 
Leonardo  da  Vinci's  Trattato  della  pittura.   Printed  by  Langlois  in  Paris  in 
1651,  it  is  a  handsome  folio,  edited  by  Raphael  Trichet  du  Fresne  and  dedicated 
to  ^een  Christine  of  Sweden.

Dr.  Drake  brought  together  3000  antiques  and  1500  rare  books  (about  150  of  them 
printed  before  1700)  related  to  pediatrics  and  the  rearing  of  young  children. 
Actually  the  range  of  this  extraordinary  collection  is  wide.   It  will  appeal  to 
anyone  interested  in  the  history  of  medicine  and  surgery,  of  women,  of  poor-relief 
and  foundling  hospitals;  and  to  anyone  wishing  to  investigate  the  psychological 
and  cultural  vistas  opened  by  Philippe  Aries  in  his  fascinating  Centuries  of 
Childhood.  A  Social  History  of  Family  Life. 

One  category  of  books  in  the  Drake  Collection  concerns  childbirth,  the  art 
of  the  midwife,  and  problems  of  conception.   In  Italian  is  La  Commare.  by  G.S. 
Mercurio  (d.  1616)}  and  the^e  are  French  treatises  by  Jacques  Du  Val  (Traité  des 
hermaphrodits  et  des  accouchemens.  Rouen,  I6l2),  Jacques  Guillemeau  (d.  I6l3),  and 
the  eminent  Francois  Ifeuriceau  (d.  1709).  For  the  English  midwife,  Guillemeau 's 
treatise  was  translated  into  English  as  Childbirth  or  the  happy  delivery  of  women 
(1635),  and  such  works  as  The  English  midwife  enlarged  (1682)  were  printed.  Three 
works  deserve  special  mention.  One  is  a  little  French  Life  of  Saint  Margaret,  the 
patron  saint  of  women  in  childbirth.  According  to  Rabelais,  women  kept  such  a  book 
with  them  while  in  labour.  Another  is  Damian  Carbon's  Libro  del  arte  de  las 
Comadres  o  madrinas.  beautifully  printed  in  1541  on  the  island  of  Majorca  where 
this  physician  and  admirer  of  Erasmus  lived.   It  has  on  its  flyleafs  some  itemized 
accounts  in  a  16th-century  Spanish  hand.   Finally,  one  midwife  —  Louise  Bourgeois  - 
spoke  up  for  herself.  This  midwife  to  the  royal  family  published  in  the  early 
17th  century  her  Observations  diverses  sur  la  stérilité. .accouchements  et  maladies 
des_femries, including  instructions  to  her  daughter,  she  had  trained  in  this 

Another  theme  running  through  many  of  these  works  is  the  wet-nurse,  about  whom 
a  controversy  had  raged  since  at  least  the  fifteenth  century.  Both  Scaevole  de 
Sainte  Marthe  and  Luigi  Tansillo  (d.  1568)  wrote  poems  on  this  subject,  Tansillo's 
La  balia  being  first  printed  in  the  18th  century.  The  most  interesting  book  here 
is  the  Countesse  of  Lincolnes  Nursery  (Oxford,  1622).  The  Puritan  Elizabeth 
Clinton*,  Countess  of  Lincoln,  repenting  that  she  had  not  nursed  her  own  children, 
criticized  the  use  of  a  wet-nurse  on  both  Biblical  and  natural  grounds. 

A  large  number  of  books  in  the  Drake  Collection  are  medical  studies  of  the 
diseases  of  childhood  and  regimens  for  the  health  of  children,  or  at  least  have 
sections  devoted  to  these  subjects»   Relevant  editions  of  several  classical  and 
Arabic  authors  are  included,  such  as  Galen  (Lyons,  1548-9);  Celsus  (Venice,  1493; 
Basel,  155l);Paulus  Aegineta, edited  by  Guillaume  Cop,  who  learned  his  Greek  from 
Erasmus  (Paris,  1512,  Basel,  1532);  Rhazes  (Venice,  1508);  Avicenna  (Basel,  1556); 
and  Avenzoar  (Venice,  1496).,   Similarly,  one  can  find  Latin  works  on  these  topics 
written  by,  or  collected  by,  such  Renaissance  physicians  as  the  Italians  Paulo 
Bagellardo  and  Girolamo  Mercuriali;  the  Frenchmen  Pierre  Tolet  and  Jean  Liebault; 
the  Germans  Sebastian  Oestereichen  and  loannes  Curio;  and  the  Flemish  Balduinus 
Ronsseus  (the  very  rare  first  edition  of  his  De  hominis  primo rd lis  hysteric isque  • 
affectibus  centones .Louvain.  1559).   At  the  same  time,  certain  physicians  begsn  to 
write  regimens  in  the  vernacular,  dedicating  them  often  to  a  woman.   Such  are 
Bartholomaeus  Metlinger's  Ein  Regiment  der  jungen  Kinder  (Augsburg,  1473)  and 
Heinrich  von  Louffenburg's  Ein  regiment  der  Gesundheit  Fur  die  jungen  Kinder  (1550), 
Simon  de  Vallambert,  physician  to  the  Duchess  of  Savoy,  boasted  that  his  De  la 
manière  de  nourrir  et  gouverner  les  enfans  (Poitiers,  1565)  was  the  first  such  work

in  French, although  Claude  Valgelas  had  translated  Jerome  de  Honteux'  Conservation 
de  la  santé,  which  included  pediatric  material,  from  the  Latin  six  years  earlier» 
Thomas  Phaer's  The  Regiment  of  Life... with  the  boke  of  children,  which  went  through 
many  editions  after  its  first  appearance  in  1545  (the  Drake  Collection  has  four 
16th-century  editions), attacks  those  who  grudge  "physicke  to  come  forth  in  English." 
Do  they  want  to  be  "marchauntes  of  our  lives  and  deathes,  that  we  should  buy  our 
health  only  of  them  and  at  their  prices?" 

Some  of  the  books  in  the  Drake  Collection  stress  the  educational  rather  than 
the  physical  side  of  child-rearing.   Among  these  are  Thomas  Elyot's  The  boke  named 
the  governor  in  the  1553  edition  and  John  Locke's  Some  thoughts  concerning  education 
(1693  éd.).  There  are  two  tracts  on  geniuses — Baillet's  Pes  enfants  devenus 
célèbres  par  leurs  etudes  (I688)  and  the  anonymous  Miraculous  child . . . from 
Manchester. . .how  one  Charles  Bennet...but  three  years  old  doth  speak  Latine,  Greek 
and  Hebrew  (1679). An  important  work  by  Juan  de  Dios  Huarte  y  Navarro  (d.  1592) 
is  he-re — The  examination  of  mens  wits  in  which,  by  discovering  the  varietie  of 
natux-es,  is  shewed  for  what  profession  each  one  is  apt,  translated  from  the  Italian, 
which  in  turn  Camello  Camilli  had  translated  from  the  Spanish  (the  University 
Library  has  facsimiles  of  the  Spanish  and  English  editions).  One  of  the  most 
charming  books  in  the  Collection  is  Les  .jeux  et  plaisirs  de  l'enfance  (1657), 
designed  by  Jacques  Stella  and  engraved  by  his  young  niece  Claudine  Bouzounet 

Finally,  mention  should  be  made  of  the  numerous  works  on  foundling  hospitals 
in  the  Library.  These  include  primary  or  secondary  source  material  on  hospitals 
in  London,  Paris,  Toulouse,  Lyons,  Dijon,  and  Tarascon  among  other  cities,  and  in 
Italy  and  Germany.  John  Graunt's  Natural  and  political  observations. . .made  upon 
the  bills  of  mortality  (I676  ed. )  is  included  in  a  copy  evidently  owned  by  his 
fellow  Political  Arithmetician  William  Petty.

(a)  -f^ncient  and  Mediaeval  Treatises  Printed  before  I6OO.  The  invention  of 
printing  coincided  with  a  revival  of  interest  in  agricultural  treatises,  and  in  the 
years  up  to  I6OO  most  of  the  works  of  antiquity,  as  well  as  some  mediaeval  works, 
were  published.  The  Library  has  recent  editions  of  all  the  Roman  manuals  printed 
in  this  period,  and  an  early  edition  of  Palladius,  De  re  rustica  libri  XIIII 
(Paris:  R.  Stephanus,  1543).  This  work,  which  draws  heavily  on  e"a.rlier   ~ 
authorities,  was  probably  the  Roman  treatise  on  farming  that  was  best  known  during 
the  Middle  Ages.   The  Library  of  Trinity  College  owns  another  sixteenth-century 
edition  of  Palladius,  which  is  bound  with  the  De  re  rustica  libri  of  Cato  and 
Varro  (Lyons;  S.  Gryphius,  1541),  edited  by  Petrus  Victorius. '  Of  the  works 
written  during  the  Middle  Ages,  tue  most  important  was  perhaps  the  Ruralia  commoda 
of  Pietro  de  Crescenzi  (1230?  -  1320?),  first  printed  in  1471.  The  Library's 

very  valuable  copy  of  this  book  (probably  Speyer:   Peter  Drach,  c.  1490-95)  contains 
many  woodcuts,  and  is  still  in  its  original  binding  of  boards  partly  covered  with 
pigskin.  The  Library  also  has  a  recent  edition  of  another  thi'^teerit.h-f^enturv 
work,  Walter  of  Henley's  Husbandry,  of  which  the  first  printed  edition  probably 
appeared  c.  1510. 

(b)  English  Treatises  of  the  Renaissance.  The  earliest  modern  works  on 
farming,  apart  from  several  compilations  copied  from  the  ancients,  were  in  the 
English  language:  Sir  Anthony  (?)  Fitzherbert's  Boke  of  Husbandry  and  his  Surveying e, 

«I  have  just  found  another,  still  earlier  edition  of  some  classical  writers»  Libri 
de  re  rustica  (Venice'.  Aldus,  1514)  which  contains  the  agricultural  works  of  Cato^ 
Varro,  Columella,  and  Palladius»

both  of  which  were  first  published  in  1523.  The  Library  has  an  eighteenth-century 
edition  of  these  two  works.  The  next  important  landmarks  were  Thomas  Tusser's 
A  Hundred  Good  Points  of  Husbandry  of  1557  and  his  Five  Hundred  Points  of  Good 
Husbandry  of  1573,  of  which  the  Library  has  recent  editions.  Though  written  in 
verse,  Tusser's  books  advocated  novel  practices,  many  of  which  were  to  be  important 
in  raising  the  productivity  of  farmland.  Of  Thomas  Littleton's  Tenures  in  English , 
a  work  which  throws  much  light  on  the  legal  side  of  farming,  the  Library  has  the 
first  titled  edition  (London:  Thomas  Wight,  1600).   Gervase  Markham's  work  on  the 
reclamation  and  improvement  of  land,  Farewel  to  Husbandry  of  l620,  is  perhaps  one 
of  the  few  original  works  of  this  prolific,  but  unscrupulous,  "author";  our  edition 
(London:   Sawbridge,  1684)  is  particularly  good.  We  have  the  third  edition  of 
Samuel  Hartlib,  His  Legacy  to  Husbandry  (London:   P.M.  for  R.  Wodnothe,  1655), 
Tirst  printed  in  1651. A  work  by  a  contemporary  of  Hartlib' s ,  John  Smith's 
England's  Improvement  Reviv'd:  in  a  Treatise  of  all  Manner  of  Husbandry  and  Trade 
by  Land  and  Sea,  first  published  in  l670»  is  represented  in  our  collection  by  an 
early  edition  (London:  T.  Newcomb,  1673).   John  Evelyn's  Silva.  or  a  Discourse  on 
Forest  Trees,  was  first  delivered  as  a  series  of  lectures  to  the  Royal  Society 
in  1662,  the  year  of  its  founding.  Our  edition  of  this  work,  (London;  R,  Scott, 
1706)  also  contains  his  "Gardeners'  Almanack".  The  Library  also  has  a  recent 
edition  of  Evelyn's  Garden  Letters,  a  work  which  is  of  some  value  for  the  study 
of  gardening  practice.   Finally,  the  Library  has  first  editions  of  three  early 
eighteenth-century  works  on  farming:  Timothy  Nourse,  Campania  foellx  (London: 
Bennet,  1700),  John  Mortimer,  The  t^Jh.ole  Art  of  Husbandry  (London:  Mortlock, 
1701),  and  John  Laurence,  Fruit-Garden  Kalendar  (London;  B.  Lintot,  1718). 

(c)  French  Treatises  of  the  Renaissance.  New  works  on  farming  appeared  later 
in  France  than  in  England,  the  first  being  Bernard  Palissv's  Recepte  veritable  par 
laquelle  tous  les  hommes  de  la  France  pourront  apprendre  a  multiplier  et  augmenter 
leurs  thresors  of  1563.  We  have  a  recent  edition  of  this  treatise  contained  in 
Palissy's  collected  works  edited  by  B.  Fillon.   A  year  after  Palissy's  pioneering 
work,  there  appeared  a  more  substantial  manual,  Charles  Estienne's  L'agriculture 
et  maison  rustique,  of  which  we  have  the  first  edition  (Paris:  du  Puis,  1564). 
The  Library  also  has  a  later,  much  enlarged  version  of  this  work,  Charles  Estienne's 
and  Jean  Liebault's  L'agriculture  et  maison  rustique  (Lyons;  J.  Olier,  1659)  and 
an  early  edition  of  Estienne's  De  re  hortensi  libellus  (Lyons s  S.  Gryphius,  1539), 
probably  first  published  in  1535.   Of  the  other  important  French  work  on  farming, 
Olivier  de  Serre 's  Théâtre  d'agriculture  et  ménage  des  champs  of  I6OO,  the  Library 
has  an  edition  of  1802,

Street  in  Toronto.   In  its  Library  on  the  5th  floor  is  a  small  collection  of 
rare  books  on  the  social  history  of  drinking.   Some  are  books  of  customs  and  manners; 
some  are  political  proposals  in  regard  to  drunkenness.  Most  of  them  can  not  be 
found  at  one  University  j^ibrary. 

The  Collection  was  assembled  by  the  late  Dr.  Elvin  Morton  Jellinek,  formerly 
of  Yale  University  and  a  pioneer  in  the  scientific  study  of  alcoholism.   After 
spending  some  time  in  Toronto  where  he  assisted  in  founding  such  a  programme, 
he  gave  this  collection  of  books  to  the  Foundation  in  1959. 

In  addition  to  two  works  on  antique  customs,  compiled  by  Niccolo  Perotti 
(printed  1513)  and  Thomas  Dempster  (printed  l6l2),  the  Library  has  one  of  the 
earliest  and  most  important  Renaissance  books  of  customs  —  loannes  Boemus'

Omnium  Gentium  Mores  Leges  et  Ritus  ex  multis  clarissimus  rerum  scriptoribus.   This 
1538  edition  is  one  of  the  many  which  followed  its  first  appearance  in  1520.   The 
unusual  Praxis  Medic inae  Nova  Ratio  by  the  physician  loannes  Heurnius  (d.  l60l)  is 
also  here. 

A  few  works  on  the  manners  of  a  gentleman  are  here,  written  in  Italian  or 
translated  from  the  Spanish  into  Italian.   Antonio  Guevara's  popular  work,  which 
the  University  Library  has  in  Spanish,  is  present  in  a  beautiful  1562  edition 
printed  in  Venice  —  Aviso  de  Favoriti  e  Dottrina  de  Cortegiani.   Also  included 
are  Girolarao  Garimberto's  Delia  Fortuna  (Venice,  mid-l6th  century);  Stefano  Guazzo's 
La  civil  conversatione,  in  a  1588  edition  in  which  a  French  owner  has  occasionally 
translated  words  into  French  in  the  margin;  and  the  Discorsi  Cavallereschi  of 
Francesco  Birago  (Milan,  1622). 

Finally,  the  collection  has  four  English  works  which  are,  characteristically, 
concerned  about  the  dangers  of  drinking:  The  Great  Evil  of  Health-Drinking  (1684). 
A.  Burnaby's  Two  Proposals. . .to  Commons... a  duty  on  Malt  (16q6).  An  Impartial 
Inquiry  into  the  Benefits  and  Damages... of  low  priced  Spirituous  Liquors  (1751)

The  question  which  I  have  been  asked  most  often  during  the  last  months  about  the 
IJJentre  for  Reformation  and  Renaissance  Studies,  is  whether  its  library  is  intended  only 
'or  those  scholar's  and  graduate  students  attached  to  Victoria.  Of  course  not.  As 
:  icon  as  we  have  a  reading  room  (we  hope  within  a  year  or  so),  we  want  our  books  and  micro- 
I  '11ms  to  be  used  by  anyone  qualified.  Our  books  will  be  included  as  soon  as  possible  in 
he  Union  Catalogue  of  the  University  Library.  But  remember,  ours  will  be  a  closed 
rary:  books  can  be  read  there  but  not  taken  out;  they  should  always  be  available. 


-  2  - 

Keaxiwhile  my  colleagues  of  the  managing  committee  and  myself  would  be  pleased  to  conduct 
any  interested  staff -member  or  graduate  student  through  our  stacks.  Don't  expect 
too  much,  and  you  may  well  find  something  you  are  glad  to  see  (mouldy  books  exhibited 
only  on  demand ) . 

V/e  are  Just  a  little  over  twelve  months  old  now.  V/e  have  1700  books,  all  on 
temporary  catalogue  slips,  and  a  few  films.  They  include  an  expanding  collection  of 
Erasmiana  and  of  works  by  and  on  Erasmus'  contemporaries^  a  growing  specialized  reference 
collection  (in  which  we  already  take  some  pride);  a  number  of  beginning  collections 
for  graduate  courses  on  Luther,  Elizabethan  Poetry,  îfontaigne  et  Pascal,  and  German 
Reformation  History;  and  some  other  books,  for  instajice  a  fair  number  on  Duerer  and 

If  our  collection  continues  the  way  it  has  so  far,  Latinists  and  Germanists  will  be 
at  an  advantage,  but  we  are  not  biassed  against  English  or  French  or  any  of  the 
languages  the  humanists  were  prepared  to  pick  up  on  the  side.  For  the  time  being  we  are 
concentrating  on  Northern  Europe;  for  Italy  and  Spain  we  have  so  far  done  little,  but  of 
course  we  must  do  something.  In  areas  v;here  the  University  Library  is  strong,  we  will 
have  little  or  nothing,  e.g.  Italian  drama.  The  aim  is  to  present  something  extra  in 
Toronto,  not  to  compete  with  any  institution;  to  develop  on  a  modest  scale  a  specialized 
library  of  a  kind  that  is  fairly  common  on  a  much  larger  scale  in  every  country  of 
Western  Europe  and  in  the  United  States,  though  in  our  area  evidently  unique  in  Canada. 

By  now,  we  have  acquired  a  fair  number  of  sixteenth-century  books,  among  others. 
But  this  year  our  book-budget  may  well  be  lower  than  last  year's,  for  we  will  need 
more  services  and  equipment.  Even  if  this  were  not  the  case,  we  would  bo  unvrise  not  to 
svritch  soon  to  large-scale  purchases  of  microfilm  and  xeroxes.  We'd  like  to  have  some 
authors  complete  and  not  merely  rare  books  to  show.  Then  perhaps  scholars  can  depend  on 
our  collection.  Among  other  plans  are:  to  sponsor  an  annual  Erasmus  lecture  (to  be 
given  by  Professor  W.K.  Ferguson  this  year),  to  produce  a  brochure,  to  attract  donations 
(wouldn't  it  be  nice  if  we  could  buy  most  of  the  books  we  need  and  attract  some  fellows), 
to  plan  for  a  reading  room  and  offices,  to  clean  dirty  books  and  to  mend  them  properly, 
to  have  them  catalogued  expertly.  By  the  way,  we  have  dozens  of  jobs  for  volunteer 
enthusiasts  --  from  drudgery  to  physical  exercise  to  bibliographical  research. 

^■/hat  have  we  got  already,  apaxt  from  Erasmus?  Two  editions  of  Alciati's  Bmblemata 
and  two  of  Ripa;  several  early  Melanchlhons,  Bucer's  Vom  Tag  zu  Hagenau  and  twenty 
books  on  Zwingli;  a  number  of  classics  xn  humanistic  editions  or  sixteenth-century 
vernacular;  a  growing  collection  of  catalogues  of  famous  booksales  or  libraries;  a  list 
of  all  Luther  books  in  Toronto  libraries;  a  few  things  on  the  early  printers  and  several 
works  on  Plantin;  a  lot  of  books  which  deliberately  duplicate  what  is  available  else- 
where in  Toronto,  e.g.,  McKerrow's  Nashe ;  the  beginnings,  in  other  words,  towards 
what  may  be  a  scholarly  library  in  ten  years,  if  vre  have  the  encouragement  of  those  who 
read  this.

An  interesting  group  of  uncatalogued  books  at  St.  Michael's  forms  the  nucleus  of 
1  recusant  collection.  Limitations  of  space  and  money  hamper  its  growbn  and  reduce  it^ 
p;resent  usableness,  but  it  places  on  campus  potentially  useful  material. 


Among  the  few  sixteenth-century  editions  is  More' s  Omnia  Iiatina  Opera  ( Touvain , I566 ) 
while  the  I<fedieval  Institute  has  the  great  black  letter  English  Workes   (London,   1557). 
ther  Moreana  of  a  later  period  include  Cresacre  f-tore's  Life  and  Deatl:  oi'  Sir  T.oornas 

-re  in  the  I627  and  I726  editions. 

Among  items  of  more  scholarly  character  are:  Nicolas  Harpsfeld's  Historia 
r:;licans  Ecclesiastica  (Douai,  l622),  of  which  Anthony  VJood  said,  the  author  "abating 
s  o^^m   interest,  he  well  deserves  of  all  posterity;"  the  four  folio  volumes  of 
ohael  Alford  (or  Gilbert)  > S.J. ,  Fides  Repjia  Brittanica,  sive  Annales  Ecclesia 
lege,  1663);  euid  Richard  /erstegen's  Restitution  of  decayed  intelligence  in  Antiquities 
,i-ondon,  l675)« 

Material  of  Jesuit  association  includes  the  canonized  Edmund  Campion's  Decem  rationes 
in  the  useful  Plant in-I-bretus  edition  (Antwerp,  I65I)  and  Claude  La  Columbiere's 
Sermons  prêchez  devant... la  Duchesse  d'Yorck  (Lyons,  l68h) .     Parson  is  represented  by 

several  works,  a  Xerox  copy  of  the  I603  Treatise  on  the  three  conversions  of  England, 
Secret  memoirs  of  Robert  Dudley  (London,  I706),  and  George  Stanhope's  Anglican  edition 

of  Christian  directory  (London,  175^).  The  fact  that  this  book  appeared  in  such  editions, 
land  non- conformist  ones,  reminds  us  of  another  aspect  of  Parsons  character  than  the 
nolitical  one  and  his  influence  on  Gibbon,  for  instance  easier  to  understand.  A 
ner  book  by  another  Jesuit  is  Sebastian  Redford's  An  important  inquiry  ( London, I758 ) . 

Although  this  literature  is  predominantly  polemic  or  apologetic,  there  are  a  number 
devotional  works.  The  pious  and  learned  Abraham  Woodhead  is  represented  by  An 
historical  narration  of  the  life  and  death  of  our  Lord  Jesus  Christ  (Oxford, 16857, 
iand  Two  discourses  concerning. . .the  Eucharist  (Oxford,  I687) .  There  is  one  book  by  John 
Gather,  whose  prose  style  Dryden  commended  so  highly.  Prayers  for  the  Sundays  and 
festivals  (Wolverhampton, I800),  and  an  interestingly  bound  trauislation  of  The  Office  of 
the  Holy  Week  (2nd  éd.,  London,  1729).  Alban  Butler's  I'feveable  feasts  ( London,  177^+), 
and  several  of  BishOi-  Challoner's  meditative  works,  Garden  of  the  soul  (1798)  and  Think 
well  on't  (1801)  are  others  of  this  type.  An  earlier  para-liturgical  work  is  Thomas 
Stapleton 's  Promptuarium. ♦ .super  evangelia  dominicalia  ( Cologne, I620) . 

Among  the  most  typical  recusant  books  the  Douay  Bible  (Uth  éd.,  Cousterier,  I655- 
55)  and  the  Douay  Catechism,  Plenry  Turberville 's  Abridgement  of  Christian  Doctrine 
(ed.  London,  1720),  must  rank  high.  Among  the  spate  of  polemicists  two  that  are  rather 
rr.ore  literate  are  Robert  Manning  ajid  Edward  Hawarden.  Of  the  former  there  is 
present  in  this  collection  The  shortest  way  to  end  disputes  (Brussells,  17l6),  England ' s 
conversion  and  reformation  compared  and  two  others.  From  Hawarden  there  is  present  among 
others  that  slightly  ecumenical  work  Charity  and  truth  (London,  1728)  with  the  asseveration 
n  its  long  sub-title  "The  rule  is  not  universal. . .that  none  are  saved  out  of  the 
nolick  communion."  Rather  more  unusual  in  that  age  of  little  inter- faith  dialogue 
Père  Le  Courayer's  Defence  of  the  validity  of  the  English  ordinations  and  of  the 
-  -aeession  of  the  Bishops  in  the  Church  of  England  (London,  1725)  and  the  subsequent 
defence  of  the  dissertation  on  the  validity  (London,  1728). 

As  might  be  expected  from  those  regarding  theirs  as  the  "old  faith",  there  was 
dways  a  good  deal  of  historical  writing.  Tjrpical  works  are  Richard  Broughton's  A 
-.rue  memorial  of  the ..  .religious  state  of  Great  Britain  (London,  I650)  and  Thomas  Phillip's 
iistory  of  the  life  of  Reginald  Pole  (London.  1767).  Hugh  Tootell's  Church  history 
3f  Enp:land  from  the  year  1500  (Brussells,  1737)  is  especially  valuable  because  this 
rork  (known  as  Dodd  's  Church  History),  even  in  Tierney's  edition  in  the  nineteenth 
::entury  was  so  frank  about  the  "intestine  wars"  among  his  co-religionists  that  the  last 
part  could  not  be  re- issued.  A  late  writer  in  like  mode  vms  Charles  Butler,  whose 
i^eminiscence  (London,  I82I+)  and  Life  of  Erasmus  (London,  1825 )  exhibit  slightly  Gallican 
■■raits.  Men  such  as  he  and  Father  Joseph  Berington,  author  of  Memoirs  of . .  .Panzani . . . 
^(i_7  State  of  the  English  Catholic  Church,  used  to  scandalize  the  more  ponderously 
orthodox  veterists,  such  as  Charles  Plowden,  whose  Remarks  on... memoirs  of  Gregoiro 
^anzani  (Liège,  179^)  must  conclude  this  list. 


There  is  not  a  little  post-emancipation  English  Catholica  at  St.  Michael's  that 

:jinot  be  recorded  here,  but  it  may  be  added  that  Newman  material  figures  largely  in 

with  a  speciaJi  place  for  his  ^^  Campaign  in  Ireland,  an  exceedingly  rare  copy  of  the 
■ ivately  printed  ajid  suppressed  work  published  in  Aberdeen  in  I896.

Father  Black's  description  docs  not  exhaust  the  useful  and  rare  books  that  can  be 
;und  at  Saint  Michael's  College  Library.  In  addition  there  is  a  small  collection  of 
books  on  other  subjects  of  interest  to  scholars  of  the  Renaissance  and  Reformation.  For 
instance,  Erasmus'  Hyperaspites,  his  celebrated  attack  on  Luther's  Servitude  of  the 
Will,  is  here  in  the  first  edition  (Basel,  1526j  the  University  Library  also  has  a  copy), 

is  a  1562  edition  of  Erasmus '  New  Testament  in  Greek  and  Latin  (Basel,  Nicolas 
.jiylingen).  Another  Basel  edition,  typical  of  publishing  interest  in  that  city,  is 
f-he  15^17  .Ctoera  of  Saint  John  Chrysostum.  A  learned  and  much  published  work  by  the 
manist  Natale  Conti,  %thologiae  sive  explicationis  fabularum  Libri  decim,  is  found 
re  in  a  1604  edition.  The  University  Library  has  a  French  and  a  Latin  copy  of  this 
-■rk  on  microfilm. 

On  England,  one  can  read  the  book  that  Williajn  Chilli ngworth  of  Oxford  wrote  after 
he  had  joined  and  left  the  Roman  Catholic  Church  —  The  Religion  of  Protestants 
(Oxford,  1658).  A  much  used  book  of  English  prayers  is  at  the  Library,  though  the 
flower  pressed  in  it  probably  does  not  date  from  iG^k,   when  Robert  Barker  printed  it. 
ÎVo  county  histories,  published  at  the  end  of  the  eighteenth  century,  include  material 
pertaining  to  earlier  periods  :  Reverend  John  Collinson ' s  History  and  Antiquities  of 
"the  County  of  Somerset  and  The  History <♦ .^Qid  7  Antiquities  of  Winchester  by  the 
Roman  Catholic  bishop  John  Milner. 

An  Histoire  des  voyages,  a  collection  of  about  sixty  volumes  published  in  France 
in  the  mid-eighteenth  century,  includes  travel  accounts  dating  from  the  fifteenth  century.

There  are  two  editions  of  Luther's  complete  works  housed  in  campus  libraries. 
The  main  library  has  a  set  of  the  definitive  Weimar  Ed.  of  Luther's  works,  comprising 
approximately  100  folio  volumes  (volume  55  unfortunately  missing) .  Emmanuel  College 
has  the  so-called  St.  Louis  Ed.  (23  volumes),  a  revision  of  the  18th-century  Walch  Ed. 
carried  out  between  I88O  and  I9IO.  Inferior  to  the  Weimar  Ed.  in  most  respects  (Latin 
works  are  given  in  German  translation,  works  re-discovered  in  this  century  are  lacking, 
fewer  editorial  helps  are  provided),  it  is  nevertheless  valuable  on  two  accounts;  it 
has  a  systematic  index,  which  the  VJeimar  Ed.  does  not  yet  have,  and  a  great  many 
contemporary  documents  (Recesses  of  Imperial  Diets,  Papal  Bulls,  works  by  Zwingli, 
Carlstadt,  and  others)  are  included. 

Of  the  several  editions  of  selected  works  available  on  campus,  much  the  best  is 
tiiat  edited  by  Otto  Clemen,  8  vols.  (Berlin,  1950-55 )  in  the  University  Library  and 
tin  the  library  of  the  Centre  for  Reformation  and  Renaissance  Studies.  Both  the  University 
Library  and  Emmanuel  College  have  all  the  volumes  published  to  date  in  the  new  American 
Edition  of  Luther's  works  under  the  general  editorship  of  Jaroslav  Pelikan  (excellent 
translations  and  notes). 

The  library  of  the  Centre  for  Reformation  and  Renaissance  Studies  possesses  the 
following  sixteenth -century  editions  of  individual  works  by  Luther:  a  I565  edition  of 


-  5  - 

the  Hauspostlllen,  a  1575  edition  of  the  Schmalcaldische  Artickel  (1557)}  a  1530  edition 
of  the  V/iderruf  vom  Fegef eur  (1550)>  and  I589  editions  of  Das  dise  Wort  Christi» . .noch 
fest  st'ehen  (1527)  and  Vom  Abendmahl  Christi  (1528) .  The  Centre  also  has  facsimiles  of 
first  editions  of  the  following:  the  three  great  pamphlets  of  1520  (Babylonian  Capitivity, 
Freedom  of  the  Christian,  Address  to  Christian  Mobility),  An  die  Ratdherrn. .  .das  sie 
Christliche  schiolen  auffrichten  ...(I52U),  and  Auslegung  des  Vaterunsers  (I5I8)»

One  of  the  treasures  of  the  Library  of  the  University  of  Toronto  is  the  manuscript 
Qironicle  of  Bernardo  Avanzino  of  Mantua,  which  covers  events  of  I506  and  1507*  The 
Chronicle  is  written  in  Italian  and  in  rhyme;  and  the  Library's  is  the  unique  copy,  and 
actually  the  dedication  copy,  written  by  Avanzino  himself  for  presentation  to  the 
Maxquis  of  Mantua. 

The  text  is  now  being  edited  by  C.H.  Clough,  formerly  of  the  Department  of  History, 
and  assistance  is  being  given  by  Professor  Beatrice  Corrigan  of  the  Department  of  Italian 
and  Hispanic  Studies  and  Professor  D.F.S.  Thomson  of  University  College. 

The  Avanzino  manuscript  has  an  interesting  provenance,  and  was  probably  in  the 
Library  of  the  Marquis  of  Meintua  until  the  early  seventeenth  century.  Just  about  a 
hundred  years  later  it  appears  in  the  Library  of  Jacopo  Soranzo  of  Venice  and  then 
passed  to  the  famous  Library  of  Abate  Canonici,  from  whom  it  was  purchased  by  the  Rev. 
Walter  Sneyd.  At  a  sale  of  some  of  Sneyd's  Library  the  Avanzino  manuscript  was  purchased 
by  Sir  Herbert  Thompson,  who  presented  it  to  the  Royal.  Ontario  Museum  in  I92I.  Since 
1963  it  has  been  in  the  Rare  Book  Room  of  the  University  Library.

The  associated  libraries  of  the  University  of  Toronto  provide  a  random  selection  of 
16th-century  English  translations  from  the  world  of  continental  reformers.  They  are  worth 
collecting  here  if  only  to  suggest  lines  of  future  buying  policy.  The  main  strength, 
predictably,  is  in  the  Elizabethan  period,  and  is  founded  on  interest  in  Luther  and 
Calvin.  There  is  a  conspicuous  absence  of  works  from  the  large  translation  enterprise  of 
the  earlier  years  of  the  l6th  century,  especially  that  connected  with  Erasmus.  And  there 
is  little — perhaps  surprisingly  little — of  men  such  as  Peter  Martyr,  Ochino,  and  Zwingli, 
who  all  had  an  English  follov/ing. 

The  translators  of  these  works  were  Puritans  of  the  late  l6th  and  early  17th 
centuries:  Thomas  Newton,  Clement  Cotton,  John  Field,  William  Fulke  (the  associate  of 
Cartwright),  Anthony  Gilby  (the  Frankfort  exile  end  associate  of  Knox  at  Geneva),  Arthur 
Golding,  Thomas  Norton  (the  translator  of  Calvin's  Institutes  and  passionate  persecutor 
of  Catholics),  and  Thomas  Tjnrjne,  who  also  translated  Pierre  de  la  Ramee's  history  of 
the  civil  wars  in  France. 

These  men  were  not  writing  on  their  own,  however.  Rather  they  were  sponsored  by 
patrons  whose  names  show  ponrthing  of  the  pattern  of  aristocratic  Puritan  interest  in  the 
country  at  large:  Robert  Dudley,  Earl  of  Leicester;  Sir  Thomas  Bromeley:  Thomas, 
Earl  of  Sussex;  Sir  Valliam  brooke;  Lord  Cobham;  Lucy,  Countess  of  Bedford,  and  Lady 
Anne  Harrington;  and  the  Earl  of  Huntingdon.  Here  is  an  alphabetical  listing  of  these 
works  by  author.  Editions  at  the  Central  Library  of  the  Toronto  Public  Library  are  also

James  McConica 

Professor  Beatrice  Corrigan  of  the  Department  of  Italian  and  Hispanic  Studies, 
University  of  Toronto,  is  compiling  a  list  of  all  EMBLEM  BOOKS  in  Toronto,  to  be 
published  in  a  future  issue  of  this  bulletin.   Please  send  her  inforrflation  on  emblem 
books  in  orivate  collections  in  Toronto. 



A  recent  issue  of  the  bulletin  (RR,  1,3)  included  a  description  of  rare  books  on 
pediatrics  and  children  in  the  Drake  Collection  at  the  Toronto  Academy  of  Medicine. 
Since  that  time  I  have  learned  thrt  the  Collection  includes  a  group  of  manuscripts  and 
unbound  printed  materials.  Most  of  the  latter  are  French  edicts  on  foundling  hosnitals  an 
child-welfare,  a  fevj  of  them  dating  before  1700,  but  especially  numerous  for  the  period  of 
the  French  Revolution  and  after. 

Most  of  the  manuscripts  also  date  from  after  1700  (e.g.,  the  accounts  of  a  student 
pensionnaire  at  the  Jesuit  College  in  Lyons  in  the  raid  17th  century;  all  kinds  of  reports 
on  foundlings),  but  there  are  five  manuscripts  from  before  1700.  None  of  them  is 
described  in  Ricci  and  Wilson,  Census  of  Medieval  and  Renaissance  Manuscrints  in  the  U.S. 
and  Canada  or  in  the  recent  Supplement  to  it  prepared  by  Faye  and  Bond.  Dr.  Drake 
collected  these  manuscripts  because  each  had  some  reference  to  children  or  wet-nurses, 
but  their  interest  goes  beyond  these  subjects.  All  of  them  were  purchased  frop  French 
dealers  in  the  late  1930' s. 

1.  Alexander  de  Villadei:  Doctrinale  Puerorum,  fragment. 

Vellum,  3  f f . ,  20  X  14  cm. ,  first  half  of  the  13th  century,  red  and  blue  illustrated 
initials  with  glosses  in  later  hands.

2.  Louis  de  Merles:  Book  of  personal  and  business  accounts,  1464-1480,  mostly  in  Latin 
with  a  few  promissory  notes  in  Provencal. 

Paper,  45  ff.,  30  x  11  cm,,  written  in  southern  France,  1464-1480  in  several  hands. 
Encased  in  vellum  with  a  notarized  act  on  it. 

Louis  de  Merles  seems  to  have  been  a  lawyer  with  numerous  business  dealings, 
especially  small  loans.  The  accounts  are  organized  chronologically  with  some  effort  to 
separate  the  credits  from  the  debits.  Many  entries  have  lines  through  then,  as  though 
this  were  a  memorandum  book  from  which  data  was  being  drawn  for  a  more  systematic 
account  book.  Yet  sophisticated  accounting  methods  are  unlikely  for  a  man  who  worked 
only  with  Roman  numerals.  Rather  he  usually  crossed  items  out  when  a  payment  had 
finally  been  made. 

Louis  de  Merles  is  the  father  of  François  de  Merles,  whose  memoirs  and  accounts  (148C 
1520)  are  in  the  possession  of  the  University  of  Pennsylvania  Library  (Faye  and  Bond, 
Supplement,  p.  493).  Rudolf  Hirsch,  Associate  Director  of  Libr.'jries  at  the  University 
of  Pennsylvania,  has  written  me  that  according  to  the  genealogy  in  the  Pennsylvania 
manuscript,  Louis  married  Apnete  Pelegrine  in  1459  and  François  de  Merles  was  born  in 
1464.  A  family  named  de  Merles  was  prominent  in  the  town  of  Courthezon,  near  Avignon, 
in  the  l6th  century.

a  20th  century  hand  identifies  the  addressee  as  a  "K.  Arnaxalt,  architecte  du  roi  a

The  University  of  Waterloo  acquired  last  year  a  valuable  collection  of  books  of 
the  l6th  and  17th  centuries  which  v/ill  be  of  interest  to  our  members.  There  is  some 
contemporary  material  on  the  English  Civil  War,  including  James  Heath's  Brief  Chronicle 
(1663),  En-^land's  Worthies  (1647)  by  John  Vicars,  and  the  1663  edition  of  Cabala.  „ . 
Hystéries  of  State  and  Governmento 

There  are  also  l6th  century  editions  of  Pindar,  Xenophon,  Juvenal,  and  Euclid,  and 
several  works  on  mathematics,  surveying,  and  navigation.   Italian  items  include  early 
editions  of  Boiardo,  Ariosto,  Berabo,  Bernardo  Tasso,  and  Aretino.   Petrarch  is  represented 
by  the  1581  Basel  edition  of  his  Latin  works,  and  Poliziano  by  his  Latin  works  published 
in  Lyons  in  1533.  History,  religion,  and  ethics  are  also  represented  in  works  written 
in  Latin,  German,  and  Italian, 

This  year  the  Library  acquired  the  private  collection  of  the  former  Director  of  the 
University  of  Coimbra  Library,  Dr.  Antonio  Gomes  de  Rocha  Madahill.  This  collection 
includes  a  substantial  number  of  items  written  before  1700,  of  which  about  one-nuarter 
are  in  languages  other  than  Portuguese.  There  are  also  many  rare  early  Portuguese  works, 
especially  of  an  historical  nature. 

Beatrice  Corrigan 


Along  with  the  recent  Portuguese  acquisition  at  the  Library  of  the  University  of 
Waterloo,  the  private  collection  of  Professor  Ralph  Stanton  of  V.'aterloo  makes  thct  city 
one  of  the  better  places  in  North  America  to  find  sources  on  Portugal,   Pro^'ersor  Stanton 
'liesses  that  there  are  about  10,000  volumes  on  Portuguese  literature  and  history  in  his 
collection.  About  250  of  them  were  printed  before  1700. 

The  strong  point  of  his  collection  is  the  Portuguese  epic.  ThougV  '  e  owns  the 
15V7  or  5th  edition  of  Caraoes'  epic,  he  has  not  specialized  in  the  works  of  that  poet. 
He  has  the  1589  edition  of  Francisco  de  Andrade's  0  nrimeiro  cerco  que  os  Turcos  nuzeracf 
a   P'ortalezo  de  Dio  and  several  epics  by  Jeronimo  Cortereal — The  Second  Siege  of  Diu. 
The  Shipwreck  of  Sepulveda.  and  Austriada,  a  poem  celebrcting  the  battle  of  Lepanto.  The 
collection  is  especially  rich  in  17th  century  epics,  many  of  them  shovang  indirect 
opposition  to  Spanish  rule,  which  lasted  until  I64O.   Among  the  17th  century  pieces  are 
Francisco  Child  Rolim  de  Moura's  Christian  epic.  The  Last  Ends  of  Man  (l623),  End  the 
UlyssippOf  poema  heroica  of  Antonio  de  Sousa  de  Macedo,  who  was  the  Portuguese  ambassador 
to  England  during  the  16A0's. 

There  are  also  several  early  historical  vjorks  in  Professor  Stanton's  Library,  One 
of  them  is  Asia  Extrema^  a  history  of  the  Jesuits  in  China  written  on  rice  paper  in  1644 
by  the  Jesuit  Antonio  de  Gouvea.  This  is  almost  certainly  the  unique  copy  of  this 
unpublished  manuscrint(see  Backer  and  Sommervogel,  Bibliothèque  de  la  Compagnie  de 
Jésus.  III,  1637).

The  importance  of  emblem  literature  to  Renaissance  sind  Reformation  scholars  in 
many  fields  prompted  the  following  census  of  emblematic  works  in  Toronto 
collections.         List  1,  based  on  Mario  Praz's  bouaxes  in  Seventeenth  Century 
Imagery  (2i\d   éd.,  London:  Warburg  Institute,  1964),  consists  of  early  editions  and  of 
facsimiles  and  reprints  of  the  same  works.  List  II  (compiled  by  Sybille  Pantazzi) 
consists  of  facsimiles  and  reprints  of  works  which  are  represented  only  in  those  fonns 
in  Toronto  Libraries. 

In  List  I  Praz's  form  has  been  followed  for  proper  names,  and  his  system  of 
inclusion  and  exclusion  has  also  been  followed.   Items  not  found  in  Praz  are  marked 
with  an  asterisk. 

My  special  thanks  are  due  to  Professors  Jay  Macpherson,  Marshall  McLuhan,  Alan 
Pritchard,and  Richard  Schoeck,  who  allowed  me  to  include  works  from  their  collections.

The  second  edition  (1961;)  of  Mario  Praz's  Studies  in  Seventeenth -Century  Imagery 
was  published  in  Rome  in  the  "Edizioni  di  Storia  e  Letteratura" . 
The  date  of  the  first  edition  of  Bunyan's  Book  for  Boys  and  Girls  is  not  1701 
but  1686  (see  below). 

The  School  of  the  Heart,  commonly  attributed  to  Quarles  as  an  original  work,  is 
actually  a  translation  by  Christopher  Harvey  of  the  Schola  Cordis  by  Benedictus  van 
Haeften  (see  Praz,  p.  362). 

I  should  like  to  thank  the  scholars  who  have  called  some  of  these  errors  to  my 
attention.  I  should  also  like  to  thank  Professor  Beryl  Roland  of  York  University 
for  sending  me  details  of  her  copy  of  the  Physiologus .

proximity  of  the  University  and  College  Libraries,  but  seeks  to  complement  them 
by  providing  a  small  extra  research  library  with  an  intimate  atmosphere  and  more 
specialized  bibliographical  services.  No  specific  graduate  course  program  is 
sponsored  by  the  Centre  itself;  rather,  it  tries  to  support  several  existing 
graduate  courses  by  supplying  extra  materials.  The  Centre's  collection  is  non- 
circulating  but  available  for  use  by  any  staff -member,  advanced  student  or  other 
suitable  person,  in  Toronto  or  beyond.  At  present,  the  Centre's  library  is 
located  on  the  mezzanine  floor  of  the  Victoria  College  Library,  As  the  venture  is 
new  and  the  collection  therefore  still  small  -  ca,  3000  volumes  »  the  library  will 
this  year  normally  be  open  only  on  Tuesdays  and  Fridays  from  2  to  $,  but  for 
individuals  other  times  can  be  arranged.  The  office  of  the  Centre  is  now 
located  in  Room  lU,  Birge-Camegie  Library  (comer  Avenue  Road  and  Charles  Street). 
Phones  928-3826.  The  Secretary- typist,  Mrs,  Vincent,  is  available  on  Mondays, 
Wednesdays,  and  Fridays,  But  for  basic  information,  please  get  in  touch  with  one 
of  the  following  s  Prof,  F,D,  Hoeniger  (Director),  928-3826;  Prof,  JoW,  Grant 
(Assoc,  Director),  928-3836;  Prof,  E,  Rathe  (Secretary),  928-3855=  The  two  non- 
Victoria  members  of  the  managing  committee  this  year  are  Professors  Beatrice 
Corrigan  and  Allan  Farris, 

We  are  steadily  building  up  our  Erasmus  and  sixteenth-century  bibliographical 
collections.  Other  acquisitions  include  sixteenth-century  editions  of  Boccaccio's 
Genealogia  de  gli  Dei  (in  Italian,  l55U.  also  1^69)  and  Natalie  Comes"  (i,e. 
Conti's)  Mythologiae  (1$88,  also  I6l6),  and  the  edition  of  Spenser's  Faerie  Queene 
which  for  the  first  time  included  the  Mutability  cantos  (1609),  Our  bibliographical 
fellows  have  by  now  prepared  special  catalogues  of  all  materials  available  in 
Toronto  libraries  on  Erasmus,  Luther,  Calvin,  Melanchthon,  Bucer,  and  Zwingli,  These 
are  available  in  the  Centre.  Graduate  fellows  this  year  will  be  preparing  similar 
lists  for  Rabelais,  Montaigne,  and  some  areas  of  Renaissance  Science,  As  Toronto's 
holdings  of  English  STC  books  are  regrettably  small  (we  have  a  list  of  those  in 
the  various  libraries),  and  as,  to  the  best  of  our  knowledge,  no  comprehensive 
list  exists  anywhere  of  the  many  hundreds  of  STC  items  which  since  the  end  of  the 
eighteenth  century  have  appeared  either  in  facsimile  or  ordinary  reprint,  we  are 
beginning  such  a  list,  marking  locations  of  Toronto  copies.  Our  list  will  not 
include  the  University  Microfilms  from  STC  available  in  the  University  Library, 
but  will  confine  itself  to  reprints  and  extra  available  photostats. 

The  second  Erasmus  lecture  sponsored  by  the  Centre  will  be  given  in  February

LIST  II  Sybille  Pantazzi 

The  following  note  mentions  some  articles  containing  bibliographical  material 
about  emblem  books  which  supplement  Praz  (1961;  edition)  and  which  are  available  in 
the  University  Library. 

In  I9U6  Henri  Stegemeier's  "Problems  in  Emblem  Literature"  (Journal  of  English 
&  Germanic  Philology,  XLV  (19U6),  26-3?)  provided  a  stimulating  "état  présent  de  la 
question".  In  it  he  referred  to  a  bibliography  of  emblem  books  then  in  progress 
at  Duke  University  under  the  chairmanship  of  Professor  Allan  H.  Gilbert,  which  in 
19i;6  had  reached  12^0  items.  We  are  informed  by  Professor  Gilbert,  however,  that 
this  project  was  never  completed.  A  more  recent  survey  is  Karl  Ludwig  Selig's 
"Emblem  Literature:  Directions  in  recent  scholarship"  (Yearbook  of  Comparative  & 
General  Literature,  XII,  (I963),  36-Ul).  In  the  latter, mention  is  made  of 
William  S.  Heckscher  &  Karl  August  Wirth's  illustrated  study  in  the  Reallexikon 
zur  Deutschen  Kunstgeschichte  (Stuttgart,  1959), art.,  "Emblem,  Emblembuche",  the 
most  important  to  appear  since  that  of  Praz,  who,  incidentally,  contributed  the 
illustrated  articles  on  Emblema  and  Imp res a  in  the  Enciclopedia  Italiana  in  the 
1930 's.  Heckscher  has  recently  published,  as  an  appendix  to  a  review  of  Moralia 
Ho  rati  ana  ...,  a  list  of  facsimiles  and  re-issues  of  emblem  books  l802-196l;, 
followed  by  a  list  of  editions  and  translations  in  preparation  (Art  Bulletin, 
XLVII,  (Sept.  1965),  392-39ii).  The  holdings  of  the  University,  Public, and  Art 
Gallery  Libraries  were  checked  against  Heckscher 's  list  and  the  result,  with 
certain  corrections  and  additions,  is  listed  below.  Facsimile  editions  are  so 
designated.  Some  of  the  facsimile  editions  -  e.  g.,  those  of  Goodyer  and 
Whitney  -  also  include  many  reproductions  of  pages  from  other  emblem  books. 
The  place  and  date  of  the  first  edition  is  given  in  brackets  after  the  title.

The  I'iusic  Library  in  the  Edward  Johnson  Building  at  the  Universii 
of  Toronto  considerable  number  of  musical  treatises  from  the  l$th 
to  the  early  17th  centuries  in  the  form  of  facsmilies,  translations 
aid  iirst  editions.  Since  new  items  are  added  constantly  to  this 
prowing  collection,  the  following  report  does  not  represent  an 
?"liajstive  bibliography  on  this  subject.  All  the  major  treatises 
of  this  period  are  nevertheless  included. 

Aithougla  no  individual  theorist  on  this  list  evinces  a

connected  tradition  in  the  history  of  ideas  and  musical  style. 
With  the  exception  of  an  odd  dictionary  or  critical  tract,  the 
treatises  -re  concerned  mainly  v;ith  rules  of  theory  and  ccmporiition, 
or  description  of  insti'uraents  and  performance  practice.  Hovrever,

extent,  sociological  background.  While  the  former  are  the 
avcv/ed  subjects  covered  by  the  treatises,  and  are  therefore  recognized 
and  discussed  by  musical  historians,  the  latter  belonp  tc  -:.  iieoondary,

on  y  wh^n  approached  from  other  areas  of  cultural  history.  To 
ol^tain  insights,  tne  scholar  must  examine  not  only 
the  preface,  ..hich  is  easily  accessible  and  rewardint'',  but  also  the 
more  fcrtiddable  body  of  tha  treatises  where  revealing  remarks  are

Since  detailed  annotations  are  not  practical,  I  have  included 
a  Vri-:;f  c;:niment  on  the  theorists  themselves  plus  a  geieral  description

La  Calliopea  legale  (s.d.)  Transi.,  A.  Seay,  The  Musical  Works 
of  John  Hothbv.  I963.  "Calliopea"  is  the  humanistic 
symbol  for  the  human  voice;  "legale"  refers  to  "canto 
legale"  or  "cantus  planus"  (plainchant)  as  opposed  to 
mensural  polyphony.

very  concise  treatise  dealing  with  the  rules  of  intervals  and  proper 

voice  leading. 
TINCTORIS,  Johannes.   (lU36-l5ll).  Although  well  educated  in  law 

and  mathematics,  Tinctoris  was  known  as  a  composer  and  theorist. 
His  numerous  writings  are  extremely  important  as  documents  in 
the  development  of  musical  thought  and  style  during  the  early 
Renaissance.  His  five  most  important  treatises  are  given 
below.  Until  11^87,  Tinctoris  was  attached  to  the  court  of 
Ferdinand  of  Aragon  in  Naples .  After  that  date ,  he  lived  in 
Nivelles .

torum,  IV,  153-77.  English  transi,  by  A.  Seay  in  Journal 
of  Music  Theory,  1:  22-75  (1957).  In  the  celebrated 
preface,  Tinctoris  cites  Dunstable  and  the  English  school 
as  the  source  of  a  new  style  of  polyphony  on  the  continent. 
The  work  itself  deals  with  the  complicated  system  of  time 
signatures  in  mensural  polyphony. 

Liber  de  arte  contrapuncti ,  Naples,  lU77.  Coussemaker,

list  of  musical  effects.

RAMOS  DE  PAREJA,  Bartolomé  (lhU0-lU9l) .  A  Spanish  theorist  of 

remarkably  progressive  ideas,  Ramos  lectured  at  the  university 
of  Salamanca  and  also  taught  in  Bologna  (although  he  did  not 
occupy  the  chair  in  music  at  that  university) . 

f  Musica  practica,  Bologna,  lU82.  Facs,  éd.,  J.  Wolf,  1901. 

Ï  This  controversial  treatise  presents  many  revolutionary 

I  ideas:  major  and  minor  thirds  are  treated  as  consonant 

intervals;  a  new  definition  of  pervading  imitation  is 
proposed  as  well  as  an  octave  system  instead  of  the  Guidonian 
hexachord.  Ramos  also  favours  equal-tempered  tuning. 

i       GAFFURIO,  Franchino  (lU5l-l$22) .  Gaffurio  studied  both  theology 
I  and  music  as  a  young  man.  Around  IU80,  he  met  Tinctoris  in 

Naples  and  engaged  him  in  a  series  of  public  debates.  In 
IU8U,  Gaffurio  settled  in  Milan  where  he  apparently  established 
a  music  school. 

Theorica  musica,  Milan,  1U92.  (First  publ.  Naples  IU82)  (MC) 

Theoretical  concepts  of  music  modelled  on  Greek  tradition. 

Practica  musicae,  Mian  1U96.  (MC)  Gaffurio' s  most  famous  treatise 
contains  a  valuable  discussion  of  compositional  practices 
in  the  l5th  century.  He  mentions  the  importance  of  vertical 
sonority  as  opposed  to  the  medieval  concept  of  stratified 
polyphony.  Gaffurio  is  here  interested  in  music  as  a 
living  experience,  not  as  an  exemplar  of  theoretical 

De  harmonia,  Milan,  l5l8.  (MC)  This  discussion  of  classical 

Greek  theory  sparked  a  controversy  with  Spataro.  See  below. 

SPATARO,  Giovanni  (lU58-l5Ul)-  Spataro,  a  pupil  of  Ramos  le  Pareja,  was 
influential  as  a  teacher  and  initiated  a  tradition  of  theory  and 
musical  thought  in  Bologna.

formulation  of  integrated  polyphony. 

II  toscanello  in  musica,  Venice,  1529.  (First  ed.  1523)  (MC) 
This  well-known  treatise  discusses  many  subjects  from  a 
progressive  point  of  view.  The  portion  on  accidentals  sheds 
light  on  the  practice  of  musica  ficta. 

Trattato  della  natura  . . .  di  tutti  gli  tuoni  di  canto  figurato, 
Venice,  1525.  (MC)  Aaron  proposes  new  criteria  for  judging

Modena.  Besides  his  musical  writings,  he  also  planned  to  publish 
Italian  translations  of  Aristotle  and  Averroes.  The  latter  works

London  in  1609.

\  éd.,   M.  Bukofzer,  Documenta  Musicologica,  195U'  The 

'  statements  of  this  fantastic  personality  have  dubious 

authenticity.  His  treatise  was  supposedly  written  to 
[  shed  light  on  "musica  reservata,"  a  performance  term  whose 

specific  meaning  still  remains  a  mystery.  Goclicus  also 

describes  the  teaching  method  of  Josquin.

'  court  in  Brandenburg  in  the  1530 's.  Very  little  is  known  about

De  musica  libri  septem,  Salamanca,  1577.  (MC)  Salinas  restates 
I  many  of  Zarlino's  theories  (see  below)  and  makes  an  important 

contribution  to  the  concept  of  mean-tone  temperament. 
His  treatise  also  contains  examples  of  Spanish  popular 
music  of  the  l6th  century. 

ZARLINO,  Gioseffo  (l5l7-l590).  Zarlino  studied  composition  with 
Adrian  Willaert  in  Venice  and  became  maestro  di  cappella  at 
San  Marco  from  1^6^-90. 

Le  institutione  harmoniche,  Venice,  15^8.  (MC)  A  1573  edition 
of  this  work  is  available  in  the  Rare  Book  Room  of  the 
Music  Library.  Zarlino's  treatise,  the  most  influential 
work  of  the  century,  is  a  compendium  of  knowledge:  counterpoint, 
modes  and  ethos,  expression  and  text  setting  are  all 
discussed.  His  system  of  just  intonation  based  on  Ptolemy 
raised  a  violent  controversy  with  his  former  pupil, 
Galilei.  (See  below) 

Dimostratione  harmoniche,  Venice,  1571.   (KC)  A  copy  of  the 

original  edition  is  in  the  Rare  Book  Room.  This  exposition 
of  intervals  and  the  division  of  the  monochord  takes  the 
form  of  a  series  of  dialogues  which  were  said  to  have 
happened  at  the  home  of  Adrian  Willaert,  Zarlino's  teacher. 

GALILEI,  Vincenzo  (1520-91).  Galilei  was  an  important  composer 
and  writer  active  in  the  Florentine  Gamerata  and  father  of 
the  scientist  Galileo.  His  thought  was  partially  influenced 
by  the  noted  humanist  Girolamo  Mei. 

Dialogo  della  musica  antica  e  della  modema,  Florence,  l58l. 
(MC)  This  treatise  is  considered  to  be  the  manifesto  of 
the  new  style  of  monody. 

Discorso  intomo  allé  opère  di  messer  Gioseffo  Zarlino  di. 
Ghioggiiu  Florence,  1589.   (MC)  Galilei  vigorously 
Zarlino's  ideas  as  exemplifying  an  outmoded  aesthetic  of 
Renaissance  polyphony.  Zarlino  was  defended  by  Artusi, 
the  notorious  critic  of  Monterverdi,  in  his  Trattato 
apologetico  in  difesa  dele'  Opere  del  R.  Zarlino  da  Chioggia,  1590, 

ORTIZ,  Diego  (1525-?).  Ortiz,  a  Spanish  composer  and  performer, 
served  as  musician  in  the  vice-regal  court  of  the  Duke  of 
Alba  in  Naples  from  1555-1570 . 

Tratado  de  glosas  sobre  clausulas,  Rome,  1553.  Facs.  éd.,  M. 
Schneider,  1913.  This  famous  treatise  contains  rules  for 
instrumental  ornamentation  and  improvisation,  or  variations , 
on  ostinato  basses. 

FINCK,  Hermann  (1527-1558).  Finck  was  active  as  a  composer  and 
organist  in  Wittenberg.

Practica  musica,  Wittenberg,  1^56.  (MC)  This  didactic  treatise 
contains  a  discussion  of  improvisation  and  notated 
ornamentation  in  polyphonic  music.  Finck  also  makes  one 
of  the  few  documentary  references  to  Nicolas  Gombert. 

BOTTRIGARI,  Ercole  (I$31-l6l2).  Bottrigari  was  both  a  musician     v« 
and  humanist  scholar  well  versed  in  Greek  and  Latin.  In 
addition  to  his  performance  treatise,  he  published  a  work  on 
the  theories  of  Aristoxenos.  v

treatise  describes  the  rules  of  polyphonic  writing. 

L' Artusi  owero  delle  imperfettioni  della  musica  moderna, 

Venice,  1600.   (MC)  As  a  conservative  theorist,  Artusi 
attacks  the  modem  madrigal  with  its  emphasis  on  dramatic 
text  declamation  and  emotional  expressivity.  He  deplored 
the  neglect  of  polyphonic  voice-leading  and  harmonically 
prepared  dissonance.  His  criticism  of  Monteverdi  prompted 
the  latter  composer  to  write  a  defense  of  the  modem 
practice  in  the  preface  to  his  fifth  book  of  madrigals . 

CERRETO,  Scipione  (l5$l-l633).  Cerreto  was  active  in  Naples  as  a

A  most  important  private  collection  of  Renaissance  and  eighteenth 
century  books  in  Ontario  remained  in  relative  obscurity  until  two  years 
ago  when  Professor  William  J.  Cameron  of  the  Department  of  English, 
McMaster  University,  began  a  short-title  catalogue  of  the  library  willed 
in  perpetuity  by  Robert  Addison  to  St.  Mark's  Anglican  Church,  Niagara-on- 
the-Lake.  In  the  year  since  I  joined  him,  the  catalogue  has  been  completed 
and  is  now  available  at  the  Rare  Books'  Room,  Mills  Memorial  Library, 
McMaster  University.  A  more  complete  study  tracing  the  origins  of  the 
collection,  and  providing  a  guide  to  the  eighteenth  century  books  will 
be  found  in  Dr.  Cameron's  report  on  eighteenth  century  library  holdings 
in  Canada,  New  Zealand,  and  Australia  delivered  at  the  Nichol  Smith 
Seminar  in  Canberra  in  the  summer  of  I966  and  to  be  published  in  the 
proceedings . 

The  collection  was  begun  by  Thomas  Topping  in  the  late  seventeenth 
century,  and  was  expanded  by  William  Beale  and  Richard  Atkinson  -vdiile 
housed  at  Whittlesey,  near  Cambridge,  from  170U  until  1772.  The  library 
then  passed  into  the  hands  of  Robert  Addison,  the  first  Anglican  missionary 
on  the  Niagara  Frontier,  who  brought  the  collection  to  North  America  in 
1792.  Significantly,  all  four  were  Anglican  ministers  which  gave  the 
collection  a  solid  basis  in  Anglican  theology  while  allowing  for  varied 
personal  interest.  The  Addison  library,  then,  was  compiled  mainly  in  the 
eighteenth  century  and  is  a  far-ranging  if  some^at  limited  survey  of 
the  various  religious  controversies,  and  a  unique  single  collection  of 
the  books  most  likely  to  be  read  by  an  Anglican  minister  of  that  period. 
In  this  brief  article  on  the  books  printed  before  1700,  I  would  like  to 
indicate  the  general  outlines  of  the  collection,  and  note  the  particular 
strengths . 

The  Addison  collection  contains  1127  titles  (totalling  I3OO  volumes), 
with  3li9  titles  (or  3^2  volumes)  before  1700.  The  pre-1700  material  includes 
26U  volumes  in  English,  82  in  Latin,  U  in  Greek,  and  2  in  French.  The 
great  majority  were  printed  after  I66O  with  I67  works  dealing  generally 
with  theology  and  related  areas  of  philosophy  and  moral  instruction.  Works 
on  the  government,  duties,  and  affairs  of  the  Church  include  a  number 
by  Thomas  Bilson,  Gilbert  Burnet,  William  Sherlock,  Henry  Spelman,  and 
Edward  Stillingfleet.  There  are  also  a  number  of  books  dealing  with  Biblical

explication  and  commentary  by  John  Edwards,  Bishop  Fell,  Joseph  Hall, 
Richard  Kidder,  and  Henry  More.  Or  again,  there  are  several  moral  essays 
and  Anglican  doctrines  presented  by  Richard  Hooker,  William  Lowth, 
Richard  Lucas,  Pierre  Nicole,  and  Seth  Ward.  The  volumes  connected  with 
various  controversies  include  Edward  Gee,  Jeremy  Taylor,  and  Thomas  Tenison 
against  Popery;  John  Edwards,  Jonathan  Edwards,  and  William  Sherlock 
against  Socinianism;  Richard  Bentley  as;ainst  atheism;  John  Wilkins  on 
natural  religion;  and  Robert  Burscough  and  Henry  Hammond  on  Schism. 
There  are  12  books  which  could  be  generally  classed  as  eccl  siastical 
histories,  both  factual  and  doctrinal.  These  include  the  works  of  John 
Smith,  Roger  Twisden,  and  William  Wake  on  the  Church  of  England;  Gilbert 
Burnet  and  Heniy  Warton  on  the  Reformation;  John  Spot s wood  on  the  Church 
of  Scotland;  Thomas  Deane  on  Martin  Luther;  Peter  Heylyn  on  the 
Presbyterians;  Edward  Stillingfleet  on  the  Protestant  religion;  Paolo 
Ssirpi  on  the  Council  of  Trent;  and,  of  course,  Thomas  Fuller,  The  Church- 
History  of  Britain,  1655.  There  are  also  approximately  2^0  sermons  in 
the  26  volumes  dated  from  Joseph  Hall  in  1637  to  William  Stephens  in 
1700.  This  includes  collections  by  Ralph  Brownrig,  John  Edwards,  John 
Cockburn,  Thomas  Sprat,  Edward  Stillingfleet,  and  Jeremy  Taylor,  with 
individual  sermons  by  Ralph  Cudworth,  Robert  Grove,  Symon  Patrick,  and 
John  Tillotson.  The  individual  strengths  of  the  theology  collection 
include  Richard  Bentley,  John  Edwards,  and  Edward  Stillingfleet. 

The  secular  works  in  English  include  29   volumes  dealing  with  various 
aspects  of  history,  12  volumes  of  literature,  9  volumes  of  memoirs  and 
biography,  and  k   volumes  for  educational  purposes.  Those  volumes  related 
to  English  history  include  works  on  the  law,  the  monarchy,  and  civil 
liberty  by  Edward  Coke,  John  Cowe,  Sir  William  Dugdale,  Edward  Hyde, 
John  Milton,  John  Nalson,  Francis  Osborn,  and  Robert  Sheringham.  The 
volumes  related  to  Italy  include  the  writings  of  Machiavelli,  and  Jean 
Gailhard's  study  of  the  republics.  There  are  also  three  significant  works 
on  the  Turks  by  Richard  Knolles,  Francis  Osborn,  and  Paul  Rycaut,  and 
René  Aubert  de  Vertot's  history  of  the  revolution  in  Sweden.  There  are 
few  works  of  literature  in  the  collection  prior  to  1700,  and  those  consist 
mainly  of  translations  of  Montaigne  and  Virgil,  the  poems  of  John 
Oldham,  and  the  essays  of  Francis  Bacon.  Finally,  the  most  prominent 
biographers  include  Gilbert  Burnet,  William  Cave,  Gerard  Langbaine,  Jeremy 
Taylor,  and  Izaak  Walton. 

The  88  foreign  language  books  include  2?  printed  in  London,  8  in  Cambridge, 
and  6  in  Oxford.  The  remaining  $2   volumes  which  were  printed  on  the 
continent  include  19  from  Amsterdam,  7  from  Leyden,  5  from  Lyons  and 
Cologne,  and  single  volumes  from  different  cities  including  Frankfurt,  Ober-Ursel, 
and  Genoa.  The  majority  of  Latin  volumes  published  in  England  were 
printed  after  l660  and  include  editions  of  Cato  (1690),  Cicero  (l68l), 
Juvenal  and  Persius  (1686),  Lucretius  (1686),  and  Quintilian  (1692).  The

•••/>i^f(i  F,D,  HOENIGER  AND  JOEL  KAPLAN 

In  a  survey  of  early  scientific  works  the  first  problem  to  be  faced  is  one 
of  definition:  precisely  what  is  "scientific"?  While  modern  botany  and  zoology 
had  their  beginnings  in  the  sixteenth  and  early  seventeenth  centuries,  the  study 
of  plants  and  animals  was  hardly  a  systematic  discipline  in  this  period.  The  era 
in  which  Pierre  Belon  and  William  Turner  did  their  pioneering  work  also  saw  numerous 
editions  and  translations  of  Bartholomaeus  Anglicus'  thirteenth-century  encyclopedia 
of  natural  history.  Furthermore,  we  find  the  seventeenth-century  criterion  of 
objective  obsearvation  anticipated  more  in  works  of  a  distinctly  unscientific  bent 
(treatises  on  hunting,  falconry,  or  gardening)  than  in  the  humanistic  commentaries 
on  the  great  classical  naturalists.  Our  answer  to  this  problem  was  to  set  no 
strict  and  fast  rules  for  including  a  work  in  our  bibliography.  Instead,  each 
item  has  been  considered  in  the  light  of  its  possible  interest  to  a  student  of 
the  history  of  biology.  A  number  of  our  decisions  were  necessarily  personal  and, 
perhaps,  arbitrary,  but  this  procedure  has  enabled  us  to  include  many  relevant 
"borderline"  works  whose  presence  could  not  be  justified  by  a  narrower  interpretation 
of  "science". 

We  have  begun  our  survey  with  renaissance  editions  of  earlier  authors,  both 
classical  and  medieval.  The  influence  of  Aristotle,  Pliny,  or  Bartholomaeus 
was,  needless  to  say,  considerable  throughout  this  entire  period.  In  the  medieval 
section  three  incunabula  are  included.  Original  works  printed  after  1^00  are 
divided  into  four  categories.  1.  Herbals  and  surveys  of  plants  (both  medically

1.  Plerbals  and  Botanical  Surveys  up  to  I650.  One  of  the  incunabula  listed 
in  the  previous  section,  the  Herbarius  of  lltij^j  is  in  Toronto  the  sole  representative 
of  the  numerous  herbals  printed  in  the  late  fifteenth  and  early  sixteenth  centuries. 
These  early  herbals  were  primarily  medical  in  content  and  aim,  and  although 
they  were  usually  illustrated  by  a  great  many  woodcuts,  the  artistry  was  often 
primitive.  The  various  plants  were  merely  presented  schedmatically  according  to 
their  essential  features.  It  was  perhaps  because  of  Durer  and  his  followers 
that  a  remarkable  change  took  place  in  the  German  Herbals  after  1^30.  The  printer 
of  Otto  Brunfels  set  an  example  for  future  botanical  virorks  by  employing  Hans 
Weiditz,  a  pupil  of  Diirer's,  to  illustrate  Brunfel's  text.  Once  Brionfels'  herbal 
appeared,  a  number  of  European  printers  endeavored  to  produce  works  with  equally 
lavish  illustrations.  These  were  often  issued  first  in  folio  and  then  in  several 
(reduced)  octavos.  With  the  illustrations  or  icônes  in  the  herbal  of  Leonhard 
Fuchs  the  art  of  the  botanical  woodcut  reached  its  height;  Fuchs'  plates  were 
popular  enough  in  their  own  day  to  be  sold  as  a  separate  volume,  and  they  proved 
sufficiently  accurate  to  illustrate  many  nineteenth-century  botanical  textbooks . 

There  is  at  present  no  copy  of  the  Brunfels  herbal  in  Toronto,  although  a 
folio  facsimile  is  now  on  order  for  CRRS.  Fuchs'  Kreuterbach,  13'h3,  is  represented 
by  facsimiles  in  UTL  and  FDH,  Two  later  octavo  editions  of  Fuchs,  both  1^1x9, 
one  containing  the  reduced  illustrations  only,  are  in  Ai4;  UTL  has  one  copy  of  a 
Vyh9   octavo  as  well:

iraportant  biologists  of  his  time.  Recently  the  Ray  Society  has  published  facsimiles

The  most  famous  (arid  least  reliable)  of  all  sixteenth-century  herbals  is  that  of 
John  Gerard,  who  used  the  woodcuts  of  Tabermontanus,  No  copies  of  Gerard's

Thomas  Johnson  is  available;

Few  of  the  more  specialized  studies  of  animals  ar  available  in  Toronto.  William 
Turner's  early  ornithological  work  may  be  obtained  only  in  A.H.  Evans'  reprint 
and  translation  (Turner  on  Birds,  1903)  at  CRRS,  ROM,  FDH,  Also  notable  by  it.  ; 
absence  is  the  equally  early  (15UU)  ornithology  of  Longolius.  But  perhaps  the  most 
rcgretable  gap  in  the  Toronto  holdings  is  the  lack  of  any  work  by  the  most

Although  o-ur  search  turned  up  a  number  of  unexpected  items,  especially  m 
the  Academy  of  I'edicine  Library,  Toronto's  holdings  in  the  fields  of  early  botany 
and  zoologj'  remain  on  the  whole  disappointing.  The  Redpath  and  Osier  Collections 
at  McGill  contain  far  more  in  these  fields  than  the  combined  Toronto  collections. 
Moreover,  the  scarcity  of  such  books  on  the  present  market,  and  their  enormous 
expense  when  they  are  available,  will  probably  preclude  Toronto's  ever  having  a 
first-class  collection  in  this  area.  We  can,  however,  take  heart  in  tJie  knowledge 
that  more  and  more  of  these  works  are  being  issued  in  facsimile  editions.  Micro- 
film collections  too,  which  were  not  included  in  the  present  survey,  will  enable 
Toronto  to  eventually  obtain  a  more  representative  collection  of  works  from  the 
formative  period  of  modern  biology.

We  know  much  about  the  printing  of  books  in  the  period  termed  the  High 
Renaissance.  A  printing  sideline,  however,  is  generally  forgotten,  and  this 
concerned  the  printing  of  pamphlets,  information  bulletins,  manifestoes,  and  akin 
material.  All  these  were  of  ephemeral  interest,  and,  being  unbound  sheets,  easily 
damaged  and  often  soon  totally  destroyed.   One  may  wonder  if  printing  this  class 
of  material  did  not  enable  some  printers  to  subsidize  the  publication  of  more  sub- 
stantial and  erudite  volumes.  May  not  the  Renaissance  colporteur  and  his  popular 
leaflets  be  a  parallel  to  the  modern  supermarket  and  its  paperbacks?  Certainly 
a  study  of  the  ephemeral  printed  material  of  the  Renaissance  is  needed.  The  place 
of  origin  and  date  of  printing  of  individual  items  is  not  indicated  usually,  but 
often  can  be  deduced.  The  scientific  investigation  of  the  paper  used,  of  the  type 
and  of  the  blocks ,  should  produce  supplementary  information,  and  ought  to  result 
in  the  identification  of  some  of  the  printers .  We  know  that  in  the  first  decade  of 
the  sixteenth  century,  Alessandro  Lippo  of  Bologna  printed  books  as  well  as  pamphlets, 
as,  apparently,  did  Nicolo  Brenta  of  Venice,  and  it  would  be  interesting  to  know  how 
typical  these  two  were.^ 

The  extent  of  official  propaganda  that  existed  during  the  High  Renaissance 
was  considerable  in  quantity  and  range,  and  was  closely  related  to  the  growth  of 
printing.  Indeed,  it  was  probably  during  the  Italian  wars  that  the  importance 
of  printing  as  a  means  of  propaganda  was  first  recognized.  One  striking 
example:  in  the  summer  of  1509  the  Emperor  Maximilian  beseiged  Padua,  and  in  an 
attempt  to  demoralize  the  beseiged,  letters  were  printed  that  stressed  the 
certainty  of  Imperial  victory,  and  these,  attached  to  arrows,  were  shot  into  the 
beleaguered  city.-^  In  the  following  year,  and  again  in  1^11,  when  dissension 
between  the  'Old'  and  the  'New'  nobility  of  Venice  was  common  knowledge,  the 
Emperor  had  distributed  printed  letters  addressed  to  the  'Old'  nobility, 
promising  them  his  support.'^ 

Gf .  F.J.  Norton,  Italian  Printers,  l$01-l520  (Cambridge,  19^8),  makes  no  mention 
of  this  kind  of  material  in  his  otherwise  admirable  introduction.

The  state  that  first  seems  to  have  appreciated  the  value  of  printed  leaflets 
in  psychological  warfare  has  not  been  studied  in  terms  of  the  Italian  wars.^ 
Evidence  suggests,  though,  that  it  was  France  that  first  exploited  printing  to  this 
end,  for  from  lh9h   we  have  Bulletins  d ' Information .  These  were  printed,  seemingly, 
to  keep  the  French  informed  of  the  success  of  the  campaign  in  Italy,  to  boost  ^ 
morale,  and  to  ensure  that  the  payment  of  contributions  for  the  war  continued. 
We  need  to  know  who  instigated  the  publication  of  these  bulletins,  and  how  publication 
was  arranged.  By  1^09,  at  least,  there  were  official  printers  with  exclusive 
rights  of  printing.  Interestingly  enough  some  of  the  original  dispatches  that 
were  used  as  the  basis  for  the  printed  Bulletins  exist,  so  that  here  we  can 
estimate  the  extent  of  editing  and  deduce  the  motives  behind  it;  the  very  fact 
that  official  dispatches  were  used  strongly  implies  official  backing  for  the 
printing. "7  It  is  a  short  step  from  the  Bulletins  to  directing  leaflets  against  an 
enemy.  These  latter  even  contained  crude  propaganda  cartoons:  the  San  Marco  of 
Venice,  for  instance,  is  depicted  in  anti-Venetian  pamphlets  of  the  1^09  period, 
after  the  defeat  at  Geradadda,  with  its  paws  cut  away. 

Many  leaflets  were  not  official  propaganda  on  the  part  of  a  state.   Private 
individuals,  as  today,  wanted  their  work  in  print  and  were  willing  to  pay  for 
this.  Perhaps  some  of  the  published  orations  are  of  this  category.^  Other 
leaflets  were  of  popular  appeal,  and  the  author-printer  relationship  in  these 
cases  remains  a  mystery.  A  writer  like  Francesco  Maria  Sacchini  of  Modigliana 
appears  to  have  earned  sufficient  reputation  for  his  name  to  appear  as  the 
author,  though  most  pamphlets  of  popular  appeal  were  anonymous.  The  bulk  of  this 
class  was  a  rendering,  usually  in  verse,  of  contemporary  events,  and  they  are 
related  to  those  which  in  England  are  still  handed  down  as  nursery  rhymes. 
Sacchini  is  in  the  tradition  of  journalism,  and  the  popular  printed  leaflets, 
like  those  Sacchini  wrote,  can  be  seen  as  early  newspaper,  anticipating  the  well 
known  news-letters.  Presumably  the  writer  travelled  around,  chanting  his  tale 
to  an  audience  he  gathered  about  him  in  the  local  market,  and  selling  printed 
copies.  Certainly  the  printed  leaflets  reflect  the  sentiments  of  the  class  of 
society,  and  the  locality,  for  which  they  were  written.  For  example,  we  have  some 
idea  of  the  popularity  of  Cesare  Borgia  in  the  Romagna  from  the  pamphlets  of 

No  mention  of  this  propaganda  is  made  by  the  following:  F.L.  Taylor,  The  Art 
of  War  in  Italy,  lU9lt-l$2$  (Cambridge,  1921);  P.  Fieri,  II  Rinascimento  e  la 
crisi  mill tare  italiana  (Turin,  2nd  éd.,  19^2);  P.  Fieri,  Scritti  Vari

Sacchini.  We  know,  too,  how  a  Venetian  printing,  intended  for  a  Venetian  audience, 
modified  one  of  Sacchini' s  versions  so  as   to  make  Cesare  a  villain. 9 

The  High  Renaissance  was  the  era  of  the  'Pasquinate' ,  when  anonymous  and  violent 
satires  were  printed  and  displayed  publicly.  ^  "What  such  posters  said  was  frequently 
untnie  for  the  most  part,  but  they  coloured  contemporary  opinion.  The  Borgia, 
especially,  were  victims  of  hostile  anonymous  printed  propagariJa,  and  one  of  the 
Host  effective  leaflets  was  the  Letter  to  Silvio  Savelli. 

Information  deriving  from  printed  leaflets  is  not  uncommon  in  contemporary 
chronicles,  and  exists  in  official  dispatches.  Usually  these  sources  do  not 
Indicate  the  origin  of  the  information,  and  this  can  cause  serious  distortion 
id  incorrect  evaluation.  Francesco  Guicciardini's  History  of  Italy  states  that 
lafter  the  defeat  at  Geradadda  the  Venetian  Government  sent  Antonio  Guistinian  as 
[envoy  to  the  Emperor.  Guicciardini  gives  a  translation  of  Giustinian's  oration 
lin  vdiich  the  cities  awarded  to  the  Emperor  by  the  League  of  Cambray  were  surrendered 
Ito  him.  The  original  source  for  all  this  is  a  propaganda  leaflet,  which  is  quite 
[false.  Giustinian  not  only  did  not  make  the  oration,  but  he  had  not  been  granted 
la  safe-conduct  to  the  Imperial  Court  .^2  jt  ^g  likely  that  Buonaccorsi's  Diario 
drew  on  a  leaflet  of  Sacchini' s  Spavento  d' Italia,  for  details  concerning  the 
Battle  of  Geradadda  arid  casualties .1 J 

Scholars  of  the  Renaissance  should  be  aware  of  such  important  sources,  even 
though  today  the  originals  are  very  rare.  It  would  be  exceptional  for  a 
library  to  have  an  opportunity  to  purchase  a  collection  of  them,  or  even  a  single 
copy.  In  libraries  where  the  originals  already  exist  they  are  elusive,  some- 
times listed  by  subject,  sometimes  by  title,  when,  as  is  common,  the  author  is 
unknown.-'-^  An  admirable  undertaking  would  be  a  comprehensive  bibliography  for  the

Professor  Werner  Schwarz  of  the  University  of  London  is  visiting  the  Department 
of  German.  He  is  the  author  of  Principles  and  Problems  of  Biblical  Translations;

The  Department  of  Fine  Art  is  pleased  to  announce  its  subscription  to  the 
Decimal  Index  of  Art  in  the  Low  Countries  (D.I.A.L.)  issued  by  the  Rijksbureau  voor 
Kunsthistorische  Documentatie,  The  Hague. 

The  D.I.A.L.  is  related  in  scope  and  organization  to  such  basic  repertories 
as  the  Index  of  Christian  Art  at  Princeton  and  to  Guy  de  Tervarent's  Attributs 
et  symboles  dans  1 ' art  profane  lU50-l600  (Geneva:  1958-196Ii) .  Nonetheless,  the 
Christian  Index  confines  its  coverage  to  religious  compositions  and  relevant 
critical  literature  in  all  artistic  media  up  to  lUOO,  while  Tervarent  traces  only

secular  material  in  the  same  range  of  media  but  with  presumed  literary  sources 
for  the  iconography.  As  in  the  case  of  the  Christian  Index,  the  D.I.A.L.  consists 
of  individual  cards  with  photographs  (at  present  some  9,000  entries  with  several 
hundred  added  yearly),  each  with  a  subject  designation,  attribution,  date  (when 
available)  and  source  of  reproduction.  All  cards  are  provided  with  a  serial 
number  relating  to  a  master  negative  conserved  at  the  Rijksbureau  or  contributing 
institution  and  from  which  separate  glossy  photographs  may  be  ordered  directly  at 
nominal  cost. 

Decimal  classification  provides  an  infinitely  extensible  organization  of  types 
of  material  (if  correctly  identified);  which  is  required  since  the  project 
envisions  the  covering  of  both  religious  and  profane  subject  matter  (at  present 
confined  to  paintings,  engravings  and  drawings)  in  the  Low  Countries  from  ca.  li;00- 
1800.  The  bulk  of  material  is  nonetheless  in  the  Renaissance  and  Baroque 
fields.  Each  decimal  division  is  assigned  to  a  subject  area:  1  for  the  super- 
natural, God  and  religion;  2  for  Nature;  3  for  Man;  k   for  Society;  !?  for  Abstract 
Ideas;  6  for  History;  7  for  the  Bible;  8  for  myths,  legends  and  tales  not  of 
biblical  or  classical  origin;  and  9  for  myths,  legends  and  tales  from  classical 
antiquity.  An  example  of  progressive  subdivision  is  as  follows:  7  for  the  Bible; 
73  for  the  New  Testament;  73  D  for  the  Passion  and  73  D  2  for  the  Last  Supper. 
Further  distinctions  are  made  by  double  letters  as  11  H  and  11  HH  respectively  for 
male  and  female  saints;  ^3  A  31  and  53  AA  31  for  Constancy  and  Inconstancy-  Cross 
or  combined  filings  are  also  present.  Thus  while  all  Rapes  of  Ganyroedes  are  to 
be  found  under  92  B  1  (+  13  Ganymedes):  U2  D  23-1  the  number  following  the  colon 
indicates  the  subject  may  be  found  under,  or  is  pertinent  to,  engagement  and 
marriage . 

When  fully  operative  in  the  current  of  I967,  the  Toronto  subscription  will 
be  placed  on  deposit  in  the  Department  of  Fine  Art  and  will  be  used  to  train 
students  in  problems  of  connoisseurship,  representational  traditions,  iconography 
and  other  related  art-historical  problems  and  as  an  aid  to  staff  research.

Part  One;  Introduction,  with  Sections 
I  (Roman  civil  law)  and  II  (Canon  law). 

(Part  Two  will  include  Section  III  on  English  Law, 
French  and  other  customary  la\i?,  with  Section  IV, 
comparative  and  other  works;  it  will  appear  in  a 
later  issue  of  the  Bulletin.) 

General  Introduction 

It  is  generally  kno\m  (thanks  to  Rashdall)  that  in  most  medieval  and  early 
Renaissance  universities  law  was  the  leading  faculty;  that  the  la\\yer-class  was 
enormously  \realthy  and  powerful;  and  that  legal  studies  were  a  potent  'civilizing 
agency'.  No  Renaissance  and  Reformation  student  therefore  can  afford  to  ignore  the 
law,  and  in  fact  there  has  in  recent  years  been  a  strong  revival  of  legal  scholarship 
in  the  Renaissance. 

This  project  has  gro\m  out  of  discussions  in  the  Toronto  Renaissance  and  Reform- 
ation Colloquium,  and  this  list  takes  its  place  alongside  earlier  lists  of  Renaissance 
books  and  collections  published  in  these  pages.   The  original  idea  was  to  identify  and 
locate  legal  \rorks  in  the  several  Toronto  collections,  and  that  idea  has  been  expanded 
to  include  Buffalo  to  the  south  and  McGill  and  Queens  to  the  east,  with  a  scattering  of 
libraries  elsewhere. 

At  Toronto,  nearly  every  book  was  actually  seen  by  one  of  the  researchers,  but  in 
a  few  cases  it  was  necessa:^  to  \irt3rk  from  catalogues.  Outside  of  Toronto,  we  have  been 
almost  completely  dependent  upon  the  cooperation  of  librarians,  who  have  wholeheartedly 
assisted,  at  times  to  the  point  of  assigning  personnel  to  prepare  a  list,  at  times  by 
providing  us  with  the  desired  information  by  Xerox.  While  acknowledgements  will  be 
detailed  at  the  end  of  this  introduction,  we   do  wish  to  render  special  thanks  to  Miss" 
R.  McCormick,  chief  librarian  of  Osgôodê  Hall,  who  has  been  especially  gracious  and 
zealous  in  her  assistance,  and  to  Mr,  William  Dean,  who  worked  to  record  many  individual 
copies  and  who  has  given  much  time  to  the:  classifying  of  the  English  legal  materials, 
Mrs.  Vivienne  Millenson  and  Miss  Phyllis  Sherrin  have  been  valued  assistants. 

Let  us  at  once  admit  that  this  list  is  not  yet  complete,  even  for  the  libraries 
covered  (for  we  have  been  promised  supplementary  information  from  some  libraries  in  the 
process  of  re- cataloguing  or  moving);  and  we  are  aware  that  the  categories  of  this  list 
have  not  been  consistently  or  uniformly  handled  in  all  libraries.   Further,  inasmuch 
as  all  libraries  are  not  agreed  on  procedures  for  cataloguing  microfilms  of  printed 
books,  we  have  not  endeavoured  to  include  all  microfilm  references  in  all  libraries. 



We  shall  therefore  welcome  additions  to  and  corrections  of  this  present  list,  which 
can  he  included  in  Part  Tito,  or  in  subséquent  nutnhers  of  the  Bulletin»  Specifically, 
we  a,re  looking  forivard  to  including  material  from  the  rich  lihrary  of  the  Bibliothèque 
de  Droit,  Université  de  Montréal. 

Editorial  principles; 

The  follo^  list  has  heen  assembled  from  the  labours  of  many  hands,  and  a  number 
of  techniques  and  approaches  are  necessarily  reflected.  We  must  emphasize  that  this 
list  is  not  intended  for  bibliographical  specialists;  rather,  we  have  wished  to  aid 
students  and  scholars  to  locate  copies  of  printed  editions  of  and  commentaries  upon 
the  law  in  the  Renaissance,  do^vn  to  about  I7OO  (though  the  terminus  ad  quem  has  been 
flexibly  applied  in  different  areas  and  categories).  To  that  end,  we  have  provided  the 
following  information  only,  but  that  as  consistently  as  was  possible  with  the  resources 
at  hand* 

-author  and  short- title 

-place,  publisher  and  date 

-number  of  pages,  or  folios 

-other  information  —  autographs, ;  etc. 

While  we  have  not  attempted  the  precision  in  collating  and  description  of  the  modem 
bibliographer,  we  have  of  course  aimed  at  accuracy.  The  general  arrangement  into  four 
sections  —  Roman  civil,  canon,  customary,  and  comparative  -~  and  the  particular  div- 
isions within  each  section  are,  to  be  sure,  arbitrary  (and  rather  different  at  times 
from  the  classifications  of  modem  legal  historians);  but  the  rationale  has  always  been 
the  desire  to  enable  students  to  find  materials  as  easily  as  possible  without  special 
knowledge  or  training. 

Where  possible  (within  the  limits  of  space  allowable  for  the  list,  or  time  available 
for  the  research,  or  simply  our  oi*n  knowledge),  we  have  made  annotations  to  provide  some 
guidelines  to  the  importance  or  usefulness  of  individual  books.  For  example:  generally 
a  brief  indication  has  been  provided  to  signal  the  fact  that  an  author  Was  a  humanist 
(in  the  case  of  Bude,  e.g.),  or  a  comment  has  been  made  to  relate  a  work  or  an  author 
to  the  mos  italicua  or  gallious  (for  which  see  the  head-note  to  Roman  law,  section  l). 

Considerable  effort  has  been  given  to  recording  autograph  or  provenance  information, 
but  that  has  not  always  been  possible,  particularly  with  items  from  outside  Toronto.   It 
is  worth  observing  that  there  seems  to  be  no  single  collector  who  dominates  the  mater- 
ials here  listed;  certainly,  neither  the  Pontifical  Institute  of  Mediaeval  Studies  nor 
the  University  of  Toronto  has  benefited  from  anything  like  the  extraordinary  expertise, 
patience  and  resources  which  made  possible  the  legal  collection  of  George  Dunn  that 
now  forms  the  nucleus  of  the  magnificent  Treasure  Room  of  the  Harvard  Law  School  Library. 
Yet  it  is  worth  recording  that  a  William  Proudfoot,  Professor  of  Roman  Law  in  the  Univ- 
ersity of  Toronto  at  the  turn  of  the  century,  owned  a  number  of  the  volumes  here  re- 
corded. Perhaps  these  remarks,  together  with  our  notations  and  comments,  will  encourage 
some  student  to  study  provenances  further,  or  (â  consummation  devoutly  to  be  hoped  for) 
inspire  collectors  with  the  means  and  desire  to  form  legal  libraries  that  would  rein- 
force the  holdings  which  our  list  reveals. 

Finally,  let  it  be  said  that  this  list  is  primarily  a  means  to  a  further  end,  and 
we  hope  that  much  greater  use  of  these  books  will  now  be  made  by  students  of  law,  history 
and  ideas.  One  can  work  at  Toronto,  and  to  a  degree  not  previously  thought  possible, 
with  many  of  the  texts  actually  used  by  such  French  writers  as  Rabelais  and  Montaigne, 
or  such  English  ^^rriters  as  St.  German  and  Elyot,  as  well,  of  course,  as  jurists  like 
Coke  and  Bacon.

Now  something  must  te  said  here  ahout  the  importance  of  the  law  during  the 
Renaissance-Reformation  period,  yet  it  is  difficult  to  suggest  the  magnitude  of  that 
vast  sea  of  the  la\v  to  anyone  \\rho  has  not  immersed  himself  in  that  'dangerous  element', 
much  less  to  chart  it.  As  a  beginning,  one  might  well  refer  the  unitiated  student  to 
the  essays  hy  Vinogradoff,  Le  Bras  and  Meynial  in  The  Legacy  of  the  Middle  Ages 
(Oxford,  1932),  for  a  proper  stress  upon  the  total  force  of  the  several  systems  of 

In  advanced  civilizations  (.Vinogradoff  iirrites;  the  complicated 
fabric  of  social  relations  requires  an  extensive  framework  of 
laws,  formulated  and  applied  by  professional  experts... 

So  it  was  that  the  sixteenth  century  inherited  a  framework  of  laws  that  was  exceedingly 
complicated  as  one  moved  from  one  jurisdiction  to  another  (and  often  a  problem  or  a  ^,^ 
person  was  caught  within  several  overlapping  jurisdictions),  and  many  teachers  and 
practitioners  of  law  in  the  sixteenth  century  necessarily  had  competence  in  more  than 
just  Roman  civil  law  (with  its  derivatives)  or  the  canon  law  of  the  Roman  Catholic  (or 
Anglican)  Church  or  the  common  law  of  England.   So  it  is  that  much  of  the  greatest 
literature  of  the  period  --  More* s  Utopia,  works  by  Rabelais,  Montaigne,  Shakespeare, 
Machiavelli,  as  examples  --  is  \«:itten  by  la^^ers  or  is  concerned  with  the  administration 
of  law  or  with  problems  of  justice  and  equity.  So,  too,  we  find  a  growing  awareness 
today  of  the  role  of  the  law  in  Renaissance- Reformation  society:   see  my  survey  of 
'Recent  Scholarship  in  the  History  of  Law'  in  Renaissance  Quarterly,  xx  (1967)9  279-91j 
which  will  suggest  useful  tools  for  the  modem  student. 

But  perhaps  we  might  offer  that  most  primary  of  bibliographical  advice  to  the 
student  :  take  up  the  books  and  handle  them,  find  out  what  they  are  and  what  they  contain. 
They  were  i/ritten  out  of  the  life-blood  of  generations  of  lawyers.

For  simplicity  as  well  as  interest,  let  us  begin  with  the  student  of  the  Roman 
law,  who  during  the  later  Middle  Ages  commenced  by  attending  lectures  on  the  Digest 
in  three  parts: 

Digestum  Vetus  (books  i-xxiv,  2) 
Digestum  Infortiatum  (xxiv,  3-xxxviii) 
Digestum  Novum  (xxxix-l) 

"The  first  nine  books  of  the  Code  formed  a  fourth  volume,  while  the  remaining  three 
books,  dealing  with  the  public  law  of  the  Empire  and  thus  less  important,  were  grouped 
with  the  Novels  and  Institutes  in  a  fifth  volume  called  Voliimen  Parvum" ;  thus  Haskins, 
in  an  excellent  guide  to  'The  Revival  of  Jurisprudence',  in  his  Renaissance  of  the 
Xllth  Century.  The  texts  were  of  course  anchored  to  the  system  of  lectures,  and  would 
so  continue  to  be  into  the  sixteenth  century.  This  system  and  method  were  not  unlike 
the  scholasticism  of  philosophy  and  theology,  and  the  stress  was  characteristically 
upon  exegesis  --  the  parallels  in  the  development  of  legal  and  theological  and  script- 
ural studies  are  striking. 

Such  complexity  of  method  and  matter  explains  the  duration  of  legal  studies,, fort 

t  before  presenting  himself  for  admission  to  the  doctorate  [Rashdall 

\«:ites,  in  Mediaeval  Universities  (l,220)],  a  bachelor  must  have 
given  a  course  of  lectures  or  at  least  a  repetition,  must  have 
completed  eight  or  at  least  seven  years  of  study  in  civil  law 
or  six  years  for  the  degree  of  canon  law.  But  time  spent  in  the 
study  of  one  Law  was  accepted  in  reduction  of  the  time  necessary 
for  graduation  in  the  other,  and  it  was  possible  to  become  a 
doctor  of  both  civil  and  canon  law  (Doctor  utriusque  juris)  in 
ten  years.... 

Upon  and  around  these  basic  texts  of  the  civil  law,  on  which  the  'ordinary' 
lectures  were  given  —  and  these  texts  were  in  the  fifteenth  and  sixteenth  centuries 
printed  both  collectedly  and  separately,  and  often  bound  in  various  combinations  and 
with  other  works  --  there  arose  an  enormous  body  of  commentary.  Already  by  the  middle 
of  the  thirteenth  century,  "men  had  begun  to  compare  the  multitude  of  glosses  to

a  plague  of  locusts  ;irhich  covered  up  the  texts,  and  when  jurists  "began  to  gloss  the 
gloss  the  method  had  outlived  its  usefulness",  in:ites  Haskins.  With  the  famous  com- 
pilation of  glosses  hy  Accursius  (c.  I250)  —  a  single  vast  collection  of  approximately 
96,000  glosses,  some  of  them  virtual  treatises  --  the  glossa  ordinaria  of  the  Roman 
law  was  horn,  recognized  and  accepted  everyiirhere  in  the'  law  schools  and  courts  as  the 
apparatus.  After  Accursius,  one  name  rises  up  from  the  schools,  that  of  Bartolus 
(d.  1357),  who  commented  upon  the  entire  Corpus  iuris  civilis.  This  was  the  method, 
most  developed  in  Italy  and  celebrated  at  Bologna,  which  taught  and  shaped  the  full 
Roman  law  for  Europe,  and  the  work  of  the  School  of  Bologna  in  particular  has  heen 
called  hy  Rashdall  "the  most  brilliant  achievement  of  the  intellect  of  medieval 
Europe":  not  only  the  theory  of  Roman  law  and  the  practice  of  civil  law  but  also  the 
habit  of  mind  thereby  inculcated  "permeated  the  European  intellect",  as  Haskins  has 
brilliantly  observed,  and  the  effects  of  this  habit  of  mind  are  long- lasting  upon 
many  academic  concerns  and  intellectual  activities.  '  ' 

Prom  the  twelfth  century  to  the  sixteenth,  Italy  was  a  centre  for  the  study  and 
dirfusion  of  Roman  law  (althoxogh  in  France  Orléans  and  Montpellier  were  also  notable). 
'By  1500  this  kind  of  study  was  solidly  entrenched  in  the  law  schools  of  Europe,  and  it 
was  knoim  as  the  mos  italicus,  as  distinguished  from  the  later,  humanistic  mos  gallicus, 
which  was  above  all  an  approach  that  was  historical  and  insisted  upon  a  return  to  the 
basic  text  --  the  text,  rather  than  the  gloss  --  and  stressed  the  central  rôle  of 
philology  in  explicating  the  text.   (See  the  notation  for  Budé,  Cujas  and  Baudouin 
below,  and  the  studies  of  Kisch  and  others  noted  in  the  Renaissance  Quarterly  survey 
cited  above;  for  notations  in  this  section,  we  have  draim  extensively  from  the  studies 
of  Donald  R.  Kelley).  Yet  the  mos  italicus  held  on  during  the  sixteenth  century,  and 
mid-century  there  was  a  fresh  development  of  neo-Bartolism.  The  notable  exponents  of 
the  mos  gallicus  were  Alciati,  BaudoiunjBude,  and  Cujas,  cited  in  B.  below;  those  of  the 
mos  italicus  were  Accursius,  Baldus  and  Bartolus,  tiro  of  whom  are  also  cited  in  B. 

One  may  comment  that  there  is  certainly  enough  material  at  hand  in  the  Toronto 
area  for  some  study  of  the  civil  law,  particularly  of  the  basic  collections;  but  there 
are  some  conspicuous  weaknesses.  While  the  French  jurisprudents  are  generally  rep- 
resented by  at  least  one  work,  the  striking  lacuna  is  that  which  should  be  filled  by 
Dumoulin  (only  in  Ottawa  can  one  find  his  opera).  One  must  note  that  there  is  nothing 
in  this  section  of  Baldus  (both  a  canonist  and  a  civilian),  and  observe  that  the 
representation  of  German,  Spanish  and  minor  Italian  inciters  is  very  poor,  indeed.. 

Items  in  this  section  are  listed  either  under  A.  Texts  and  Collections,  or  B. 
Commentaries  and  Treatises.  Section  A.  is  organized  chronologically,  and  B.  alpha- 
betically by  author,  for  the  convenience  of  the  non- specialist.  Duplicate  editions 
are  in  most  instances  listed  immediately  the  first  edition  of  the  work.

BARTOLUS  (1309-1352)  Native  of  Sassoferrato,  professor  at  Perugia,  one

in  the  school  of  Italian  jurists,  but  a  main  object  of  hostility  for 
the  later  humanists,  who  disliked  him  for  his  "barbarism"  and  his  stress 
on  classifying  laws  rather  than  placing  them  in  historical  perspective.

DUMOULIN,  CHARLES  (I5OO-I566).   Studied  humanities  and  philosophy

returned  to  France,  living  in  Orléans,  Lyons,  and  Paris.   Though 

trained  in  the  humanities  as  well  as  law,  Dimoulin  was  a  neo-Bartolist. 

He  showed  how  the  classicizing  of  humanists  sometimes  led  them  to 

be  less  historical  than  the  Bartolists,  in  regard  to  fiefs,  for  instance. 

Ultimately  he  influenced  the  work  of  humanist  jurists  themselves.  Along

Systematized  during  the  eleventh  and  twelfth  centuries,  the  public  law  of 
the  Roman  Catholic  Church  was  still  not  officially  codified  "by  the  time  of  the 
Reformation;  for  present-day  purposes  it  is  important  to  realize  that  the  com- 
ponent parts  of  what  is  now  (since  1918)  the  official  Corpus  luris  Canonici    -i.: 
were  familiar  to  sixteenth-century  students  in:  a  mass  of,  texts,  handed  do'tm  in''  ■"  v.  :i..  . 
various  collections  of  conciliar  canons,  decretals,  and  other  compilations. 
(The  bibliographical  history  of  the  canon  law  texts  in  the  Reformation  has  still 
not  been  charted  completely). 

First  there  was  the  twelfth- century  Decretum  of  Gratian,  a  'private*  work, 
but  one  which  was  immediately  used  as  a  text  and  which  became  the  foundation  for  the 
ixniversally  accepted  law  of  the  Church,  Then  during  the  thirteenth  and  fourteenth 
centuries  there  were  several  general  councils,  part  of  whose  effort  was  to  complete 
the  structured  private  and  public  law  of  the  Church;  individual  popes  issued  decretals, 
especially  the  law-minded  Innocent  III  (1198-1216).   Several  official  collections 
were  made;  The  Decretales  of  Gregory  IX  (in  123^)  the  Liber  Sextus  of  Boniface  VIII 
(1298),  the  Clementinae  of  Clement  V  (131?),  and  the  Extravagantes  of  John  XXII 
(added  in  I5OO). These  collections  formed  the  corpus  of  canon  law,  and  various 
editions,  are  listed  in  part  A  of  this  section,   r-o  '.'■-, 

Canonists,  especially  those  teaching  in  the  universities,  worked  to  explain  the 
texts  of  the  Decretum  of  Gratian  and  of  the  Decretales,  hence  their  being  called 
Decretists  or  Decretalists,  respectively.  Traditionally  most  influential  among  the 
commentators  (and  their  influence  continued  into  the  sixteenth  century,  for  the 
most  part)  were  the  following:  Rufinus  (d.  1203),  Huguccio  (d.  1210),  Innocent  IV 
(d.  125^),  Hostiensis  (d.  127l),  and  Johannes  Andreae  (d.13'4-8).   Johannes  de  Lignano 
(d.  1383),  who  taught  first  civil  then  canon  law  at  Bologna,  was  also  a  student  of 
astronomy  and  science,  and  his  influence  upon  Chaucer  has  recently  been  studied;  he 
provides  but  one  example  of  the  range  of  interests  and  the  scope  of  subjects  treated 
by  these  scholars , whose  individual  works  are  listed  below  in  section  B. 

"'One  might  note  the  most  useful  appendix  in  Brian  Tierney's 
Foundations  of  the  Conciliar  Theory  (l955)  —  which  is,  along 
with  the  same  author's  work  on  the  poor  law,  a  demonstration 
of  the  deep  influence  of  canonist  discussion  and  teaching  —  in 
(which  appendix  there  is  a  brief  guide  to  the  chronology, 
.careers  and  literary  activities  of  a  goodly  number  of  canonists. 

Perhaps  the  fullest  and  clearest  picture  of  canon  law  at  the  end  of  the  Middle  Ages 
is  given  by  the  work  of  Panormitanus  (d.  1^-53?)?  who  produced  many  works  of  lasting 
influence.  In  a  recent  article  in  Mediaeval  Studies   (xxv;.  1963)  I  have  attempted 
_to  sketch  'Canon  Law  in  England  on  the  Eve  of  the  Reformation', 

Although  the  collections  in  Toronto  are  of  varying  size  and  quite  imeven  in 
quality,  there  are  several  works  of  major  importance  in  this  area.  Perhaps  most  worthy 
of  special  comment  is  Gibson's  Codex  (Can.  kO,    in  B,  below),  which  is  a  still  indis- 
pensible  collection  of  statutes,  canons,  etc,  of  the  Church  of  England,  along  with 
his  commentary  and  introduction.  But  we  should  stress  the  presence  in  the  Mediaeval 
Institute  of  a  significant  representation  of  medieval  canonists:   Abbo  (Can.  29), 
a  collection  of  commentaries;  BalduS,  Super  Decretalibus  (Can,  33);  and  Durandus 
(Can  38).

DU^IOULIN,  CHARLES  (See  Rom  38  for  biographical  details.)  Dumoulin 
was  a  strong  Gallican  and  a  sj^pathizer  for  many  years  with  varieties 
of  Protestantism.   After  a  final  conflict  with  the  French  Calvinists  in 
1563-6^,  he  seems  to  have  died  technically  a  Catholic.  As  Donald  Kelley 
has  stressed,  he  put  "truth  to  history"  above  other  criteria,  criticizing 
the  humanists  when  he  felt  their  work  was  distorting  history.   In  canon 
law,  he  believed  the  canonists  were  insufficiently  skilled  in  the  Roman 
law  and  wished  to  join  better  Christian  studies  with  jijirisprudence. 
Above  all,  he  attempted  to  examine  canon  law  in  light  of  the  data  of 
history.  Vols.  IV-V  of  the  Opera,  Rom  38,  are  devoted  to  canon  law.

most  influential  canonists  of  the  Middle  Ages,  a  liturgist,  judge, 
and  bishop  (of  Menda).  He  was  a  Doctor  of  Bologna  where  he  taught 
before  going  to  Rome  in  the  service  of  Cardinal  Hostiensis.   One  of 
the  auditores  causarum  sacri  palatii,  he  was  among  those  responsible  '  .' 
for  the  conciliar  legislation  of  Gregory  X  in  the  Second  Council  of 
Lyons.  The  Speculum  iudiciale,  his  most  famous  work,  was  a  comprehensive 
treatise  on  court  procedure,  the  most  influential  guide  on  that  subject 
of  the  Middle  Ages.   It  was  enlarged  in  the  l^th  century  by  the 
Additiones  of  Baldus  (q.v, )  and  of  Giovanni  d' Andrea  (q.v.)»

pared a  great  scholarly  inventory  of  documents  on  political  and 
legal  subjects.  A  strong  Gallican,  he  was  first  stimulated  to 
study  ecclesiastical  documents  by  the  royal  conflict  with  the 
papacy  in  1551.  The  final  results  of  his  work  were  published 
in  the  Recueil  as  a  "Mémoire  sur  les  libertez  de  l'église  Gallicane" 
and  were  utilized,  as  Donald  Kelley  has  shoi^m,  by  Pierre  Pithou

the  College  of  Adrian  IV.  One  of  the  moat  distinguished  canonists

LANCELOTTI,  J.-P,   (1522-1590),   A  native  and  student  of  Perugia,   In 
place  of  the  simple  commentary  on  the  text  of  the  Decretals,  he  sub- 
stituted a  systematic  analysis  in  three  parts.  With  the  encouragement  of 
Paul  IV  he  revised  the  text  of  his  teaching  on  the  model  of  the  In- 
stitutes of  Justinian.  First  published  at  Perugia  in  I563  under  the  title 
of  Institutiones  juris  canonici,  his  work  was  of  lasting  value  and  often 
reprinted  with  the  Corpus,  ultimately  inspiring  the  revision  of  the  Code 
of  Canon  Law  in  I9I8.   See  Can  Ik,

RAYMOND  OF  PEWAFORT,  ST.   (c.  1175-1275).   Canonized  by  Clement 
VIII  in  1601.  He  was  a  graduate  of  the  cathedral  school  of 
Barcelona  and  of  Bologna,  entering  the  Order  of  Preachers  in 
1221.   Confessor,  chaplain,  and  penitentiary  to  Gregory  IX,  he 
was  charged  with  collecting  the  papal  decretal  letters  into  one 
volume.   This  is  the  Decretales  Gregorii  IX.  He  was  elected  third 
Master  General  of  the  Dominicans  in  1238,  and  gave  the  constitutions 
of  the  Order  a  juridical  arrangement.  He  was  involved  in  the 
apostolate  to  the  Jews  and  Moors  in  Spain,  and  used  his  influence 
to  establish  a  school  of  Arabic  studies,  and  to  induce  St.  Thomas  Aquinas 
to  compose  his  Summa  contra  gentiles.  The  Summa  iuris  canonici  was  his 
first  canonical  treatise  and  was  never  completed:  in  the  only  extant 
Ms.  the  first  two  of  seven  projected  parts  are  found.  His  principal 
literary  work  was  the  Summa  de  casibus  poenitentiae,  \n?itten  between 
1222  and  1229  at  Barcelona.  This  was  the  first  practical  and  systematic 
treatment  of  confessional  matter. 

(JOHN  OF  FREIBURG  [RHMSIK],  d  131^,  was  a  Dominican  moralist  and 
canonist,  lector  at  Freiburg  im  Breisgau.   His  Summa  Confessorum  re- 
lated pastoral  problems  to  speculative  moral  principles,  especially 
those  of  Aquinas.  This  work,  the  classic  of  its  kind,  was  inspired 
by  the  Summa  de  poenitentiis  of  Raymond  of  Penafort).

The  International  Committee  of  Historical  Sciences  met  in  Rome  this  past  June 
to  set  up  the  final  programme  for  the  general  sessions  of  the  International  Meeting 
in  Moscow,  1970.   Several  of  the  medieval  sessions  will  be  of  interest  to  readers 
of  R&R  —  a  series  of  reports  on  feudalism  in  the  Orient,  and  throughout  Europe; 
the  poor  in  medieval  society;  the  economy  of  the  Balkans  and  the  Mediterranean  in 
the  fifteenth  and  sixteenth  centuries,  among  others.  In  the  Modern  History  Section, 
a  major  theme  is  Seventeenth-Century  Europe  (secularization,  social  and  scientific 
and  technological  "revolutions"  etc.).   In  addition  a  session  \rLll   be  devoted  to 
Nobilita  e  amministrazione;  formazione  del  ceto  biirocratico  in  Europa  nell'  età 
Rinascimento  (proposed  by  Italy), Frsince  is  organizing  a  programme  on  Le  développement 
de  1 'esprit  d'organisation  et  de  la  pensée  méthodique  dans  la  mentalité  occidentale 
à  l'époque  de  la  Renaissance. 

Beyond  these  general  sessions,  of  course,  there  are  the  meetings  of  the  various 
international  commissions,  such  as  the  Fédération  internationale  des  Sociétés  et

Stillman  Drake 

A  substantial  collection  of  books  relating  to  the  history  of  scientific 
thought,  privately  owned  but  housed  the  Rare  Books  and  Special  collections 
of  the  University  of  Toronto  Library,  is  available  to  the  faculty  and  graduate 

students  of  the  University. 


The  collection  was  formed  primarily  around  the  work  of  Galileo.  Virtually 
all  the  original  editions  and  collected  editions  of  Galileo's  works  are  included, 
together  with  most  of  their  translations  into  other  languages.  Likewise,  most 
of  the  contemporary  works  in  which  Galileo  was  attacked  or  supported  in  his 
scientific  views  are  present.  The  post-Galilean  discussions  of  his  science, 
and  the  works  of  his  most  active  pupils,  are  also  in  the  collection,  as  are 
appraisals  and  critiques  of  the  Galilean  revolution  in  science  down  to  the 
present  day. 

Of  interest  to  students  of  the  Renaissance  and  Reformation  are  the  holdings 
of  sixteenth-century  science  and  philosophy.   The  original  works  of  Nicolb 
Tartaglia,  Guido  Ubaldo  del  Monte,  and  Giovanni  Battista  Benedetti,  for  example, 
are  nearly  complete  in  the  collection,  together  with  some  works  of  Girolamo 
Cardano,  Alessandro  Piccolomini,  and  similar  Italian  writers  who  occasionally 
with  scientific  topics. 

Special  attention  has  been  given  to  the  collection  of  cominentaries  on  Aristotle 
published  in  the  sixteenth  century,  particularly  those  dealing  id-th  the  Physica, 
De  caelo.  and  the  pseudo- Aristotelian  Problems  of  Mechanics.   Commentaries  of 
Simplicius,  Philoponus,  Themistius,  Nifus  and  Burleigh  are  well  represented. 

Sixteenth-century  translations  of  scientific  works  of  antiquity  will  also 
be  found,  particularly  of  Archimedes,  Hero  of  Alexandria,  and  Pappus.  Modern 
translations  of  those  works  are  also  present. 

Biographies  and  biographical  reference  works  with  respect  to  scientific 
figures,  and  to  a  lesser  degree  philosophers,  comprise  one  section  of  the 
collection.   Other  sections  into  which  the  collection  has  been  rough!/  divided 
are  history  of  science,  philosophy  of  science,  science  before  Galileo,  science 
after  I65O,  religion  and  science,  and  technology. 

4/T-  v^'i». 


A  primitive  card  catalogue  of  the  collection  exists  but  cannot  at  this  time 
be  made  accessible  to  others  than  personnel  of  the  Rare  Book  Department.   Arrange- 
ments are  being  made  to  provide  a  proper  catalogue  of  the  collection  for  general 
use,  but  it  is  expected  that  that  will  require  at  least  a  year.  Meanwhile  it 
will  be  necessary  to  ask  at  the  Rare  Book  Room  (^5  Charles  Street  East,  downstairs) 
whether  a  particular  book  not  in  the  University  Library  is  held  in  the  collection. 
For  obvious  reasons,  books  in  the  colleètion  will  from  time  to  time  be  unavailable 
except  to  the  owner,  but  they  will  be  returned  to  the  collection  whenever  they 
are  not  in  his  active  use  in  research. 

A  considerable  number  of  manuscripts  are  included  in  the  collection,  though 
few  of  them  are  of  the  pre-Galileo  period.  Nearly  all  are  of  scientific  or 
philosophical  character,  unpublished,  and  in  either  Italian  or  Latin.   For  the 
most  part  they  are  not  manuscripts  of  great  value,  but  would  afford  graduate 
students  good  practice  in  the  handling  and  reading  of  manuscript  material. 

There  are  also  a  number  of  sixteenth-century  printed  books  which  have 
extensive  contemporary  marginal  notes.   It  is  believed  that  those  volumes  will 
amply  reward  study  by  speciauLists  in  the  science  and  philosophy  of  the  period. 
They  are  available  on  the  same  basis  as  other  works  in  the  collection,  but  it 
is  expected  that  anyone  intending  to  do  extensive  work  on  such  a  volume  will 
first  discuss  the  matter  with  the  owner. 

The  only  scientific  incimable  in  the  collection  is  the  Epytoma  of  Regio- 
mor;';anus  on  the  Almagest  of  Ptolençr,  a  rather  poor  copy  of  a  most  interesting 
and  neglected  (though  well  kno-wn)  work.  Perhaps  the  most  fascinating  of  the 
very  rare  early  works  is  Giorgio  Valla's  De  expetendis  et  fugiendis  rerum  of 
1500,  comp'  ^.e  except  as  to  the  medical  treatises. 

Despite  the  heavy  emphasis  of  the  collection  on  Italian  works  of  the 
seventeenth  century,  it  is  believed  that  much  of  interest  and  of  use  will  be 
found  in  it  by  specialists  in  the  Renaissance  and  Reformation  periods.   At  a 
first  rough  'heck,  the  collection  appears  to  duplicate  the  holdings  of  the 
University  Library  to  only  a  small  degree,  and  to  offer  possibilities  of 
valuable  research  to  many  persons  in  the  University,  The  purpose  of  the 
arrangements  to  house  it  with  the  Library  was  primarily  to  make  it  available 
to  schol:-rs  in  every  field,  who  are  not  only  invited,  but  urged,  to  make  as 
extensive  use  of  it  as  they  can.  ipxjjl 

Inquiries  to  the  writer  at  the  newly-created  Institute  for  the  History 
and  Philosophy  of  Science  and  Technology  are  invited.  The  address  is  621 
Spadina  Avenue,  and  the  extension  is  5159» 


The  Council  of  the  Federation  Internationale  des  Sociétés  et  Instituts  pour 
l'étude  de  la  Renaissance  met  in  Rome  last  June  to  make  plans  for  the  meetings 
in  Moscow  in  1970.  The  Council  selected  ERASMUS  STUDIES  as  the  theme  of  the 
meeting.  More  information  can  be  obtained  from  the  Secretary  of  the  Federation, 
Professor  Robert  Kingdon,  Department  of  History,  University  of  Wisconsin, 
Madison  53706,  U.S.A.

The  Library  of  the  University  of  Toronto  has  just  acquired  an  important  collecticai 
of  LEGAL  LITERATURE,  numbering  some  ^80  volumes.  The  collection  is  of  Italian 
provenance,  with  special  strength  in  civil  and  canon  law  as  well  as  church  history. 
The  volumes  range  from  the  l6th  to  the  19th  centuries,  with  a  major  concentration 
in  18th  century  publication  from  Italy,  and  there  «re  some  70  items  published  be- 
fore 1600,  A  fuller  description  will  have  to  await  the  arrival  and  sorting  of 
the  collection.

••When  we  speak  of  a  body  of  law,  we  use  a  metaphor  so  apt  that  it  is 
hardly  a  metaphor",  Maitland  justly  wrote  in  beginning  his  'Outlines  of 
English  Legal  History'  (in  Collected  Papers.  II,  ^1?).  For  the  metaphor 
pictures  "a  being  that  lives  and  grows,  that  preserves  its  identity  while 
every  atom  of  which  it  is  composed  is  subject  to  a  ceaseless  process  of 
change,  decay,  and  renewal,,.,"  So  should  we  think,  in  the  Renaissance 
above  all,  of  law;   indeed,  the  very  metaphor  is  singularly  appropriate  to 
Renaissance  thinking,  r*r«       '-on, 


In  Part  one  of  this  project, (R&R  Vol,  IV.  no.  1,  October  1967)»  we  spoke 
of  law  in  the  Renaissance  generally  and  presented  a  Finding  List  of  books 
cf.ealing  both  with  the  Civil  Law  and  with  Canon  Law,  each  of  which  was  a  separate 
system  of  law  and  both  of  which  derived,  in  varying  ways  and  degrees,  from  both 
the  substance  and  procedure  of  Roman  Law.  The  Roman  Law,  further,  exerted  a 
powerful  influence  upon  most  countries  of  Europe  in  the  l6th  century  —  and 
that  influence  is  spoken  of  as  'the  Reception':  i.e, .  the  reception  of  Roman 
Law,  which  was  studied  and  revived  in  and  adopted  into  various  countries,  at 
which  time  in  several  countries  (but  not  England)  it  displaced  the  old  customary 
laws.   (For  a  still-admirable  introductory  essay  on  the  background,  see  Paiil 
Vinogradoff  on  customary  law  in  The  Legacy  of  the  Middle  Ages»)  •'-/ 

While  Section  III  of  our  list  will  embrace  the  customary  law  of  the  in- 
dividual countries  of  Europe,  in  so  far  as  printed  books  in  this  category  are 
located  in  the  libraries  covered,  this  issue  will  contain  only  the  first  sub- 
section of  this  part,  the  Common  Law  of  England,  owing  to  the  bulk  here  repre»- 
sented.  The  ordering  of  the  materials  collected  is  largely  the  work  of  William 
Dean.   The  sub-sections  for  France  and  other  countries  will  appear  in  the  final 
issue  of  our  list,  together  with  Section  IV,  containing  comparative  and  other

III.  A.  ENGLISH  COMMON  LAW  (Primary  Editor:  William  Dean) 



The  English  law  is  a  combination  of  statute,  common,  and  customary  law, 
and  of  equity.  The  material  located  for  inclusion  in  this  Finding  List  has 
arbitrarily  been  divided  into  the  following  sections:  i)  Statutes,  ordinances, 
and  miscellaneous  legal  records^  ii)  Year  Books;  iii)  Reports  of  decisions; 
iv)  Reports  of  miscellaneous  trials;  v)  Abridgements  of  the  law;  vi)  Treatises 
on  the  law  in  its  several  aspects;  vii)  Manuscripts,  To  facilitate  reference 
each  section  has  been  assigned  a  coae. 

The  treatment  of  the  English  law  varies  from  that  of  the  other  sections 
of  the  Finding  List,  I  have  not  attempted  to  identify  the  various  writers,

nor  to  provide  capsule  information  on  the  moi'e  professional  literature,  such  as 
the  Reports.   In  the  section  on  Treatises  there  is  a  general  introduction  that 
seeks  to  outline  some  of  the  more  important  works  listed,  and  to  suggest  how 
legal  thought  may  contribute  to  historical  and  other  myths  beyond  the  immediacy 
of  professional  need.  Some  readers  may  find  this  an  unsatisfactory  method;  but 
to  do  justice  to  the  material  here  listed  would  involve  a  long  essay  on  legal 
scholarship  well  beyond  the  intentions  of  the  editors, 

English  law  has  never  been  codifiedj) ,  and  despite  the  voltome  of  legislation 
from  the  Tudor  period  to  the  present,  the  principles  on  which  the  law  is  founded 
stm  largely  derive  from  the  cases,  the  reported  decisions  of  the  Royal  judges. 
Unlike  the  civilian  tradition,  writers  on  the  law  have  not,  with  rare  exception, 
been  accorded  much  authoidty,  Littleton,  Qf  Tenures,  and  certain  ancient  authors, 
are  authoritative  but  the  later  writers  were  never  decisive  in  argument, 

A  further  difficulty  to  the  fvill  understanding  of  the  law  is  the  place  that 
the  procedural  devices,  whether  forms  of  action,  pleading,  or  conveyancing,  have 
within  its  structure.  A  knowledge  of  procedure  is  in  the  long  run  of  more  value 
to  the  understanding  of  medieval  and  renaissance  law  than  most  of  the  substaintive 
law.  And  fully  to  understand  the  complications,  especially  in  the  seventeenth 
century,  the  researcher  has  also  to  look  to  the  function  of  equity,  the  juris- 
dictions of  the  Lord  Chancellor  and  the  chancery  court,  in  zrelation  to  the  com- 
mon law  itself.  And  within  the  common  law  he  must  look  to  the  nature  of  the 
jurisdiction  exercised  by  the  several  courts,  for  English  common  law  is  equally 
the  history  of  the  competing  jurisdictions  arising  out  of  the  medieval  Royal 
Court  and  household,  fhe  picture  that  it  presents  is  often  confusing,  and  even 
contradictory;  but  its  importance  in  the  Renaissance  can  never  be  ignored,  and 
the  fascination  that  it  held  for  some  of  the  finest  intellects  of  the  day  — 
Sir  Thomas  More,  Sir  Francis  Bacon,  Sir  Edward  ^okej,  Lord  Ellesmere  —  attests 
to  its  challenge  to  learning»  Erasmus  with  his  Latin  bias  could  well  feel  that 
the  English  legal  profession  was  "remote  from  true  learning";  and  Sir  Thoifias 
Elyot  could  have  reservations  because  it  was  a  study  "involved  in  so  barbarous 
a  language  .a,,,  no  man  understanding  it  but  they  which  have  studied  the  laws" 
(most  law  in  the  Renaissance  was  in  Law  French) ;  yet  the  English  legal  system 
was  to  develop  into  one  of  the  major  legal  systems j  and  in  so  doing  permeated 
every  branch  of  English  society,  ^  cotr- 

In  the  several  introductions  to  the  subdivisions  of  the  List  referenoe  is 
made  to  legal  terms  that  may  not  be  familiar  to  non-lawyers. 

Stare  decisis «  an  abbreviated  form  of  the  expression  stare  decisis  et  non 
qui eta  moverep  is  the  doctrine  that  once  a  point  of  law  has  been  settled  by 
judicial  decision  consequent  upon  litigation  it  becomes  a  precedent  that  is 
binding  on  all  future  decisions  that  turn  on  that  point»   In  any  decision  the 
judge  gives  his  reasons,  not  all  of  which  are  authoritative  and  binding  on 
future  decisions»  These  are  referred  to  as  obiter  dicta;  the  authoritative 
reasons  are  called  ratiot [decidendi » 

These  principles  apply  to  the  Common  Lav  and  Equity»  By  Common  Law  is 
meant  the  law  that  emerges  in  England  after  the  twelfth  century  through  the 
decisions  of  the  Royal  courts  of  justice;  by  Equity  is  meant  the  decisions 
of  the  Court  of  Chancery  and  the  principles  (there  developed)  served  as  a 
gloss  on  the  common  law,  being  instrumental  in  developing  the  doctrines 
that  the  technicalities  of  the  law  ought  not  to  prevent  substantial  justice 
being  done  according  to  consjience.

The  chief  jurisdictions  of  the  Common  Law  met  with  in  this  List  ares 

Conmion  Pleas:   the  first  of  the  courts  to  emerge  from  the  King's  Council, 
Curia  Regis,  as  a  distinct  judicial  body.  The  judges' 
determined  actions  ■betlv^e^  subject  and  subject,  C,P.  was 
abolished  in  1873  and  the  jurisdiction  transferred  to 
King's  Bench o 

^King's  (Queen's)  Bench;  descended  from  the  actions  determined  coram  rege; 
concerned  with  matters  affecting  the  sovereign  or  great  and 
privileged  subjects.  It  was  also  a  Court  of  Error  (appeal) 
to  correct  errors  in  the  inferior  jurisdictions.  In  criminal, 
civil,  and  error  K„B„  had  supreme  and  general  jiirisdictions. 

Exchequers      a  court  of  civil  pleas  that  arose  from  the  need  to  determine 
disputes  affecting  the  fiscal  office  of  Exchequer. 

Njajl  Priuss     generally  a  term  to  denote  actions  before  the  judges  of  King's 
Bench,  often  held  on  circuit.   It  also  indicates  a  trial  before 
judge  and  jury. 

Chancery:       the  court  of  the  Lord  Chancellor,  as  distinct  from  the  Royal 
Courts.   Its  jurisdiction  in  equity  embraced  trusts,  the  se- 
parate estate  of  married  women  and  the  administration  of  the 
estâtes  of  deceased  persons.  Unlike  the  Common  Law  courts, 
which  evolved  with  the  development  of  the  forms  ijf  action, 
principles  of  equity  are  often  traceable  to  the  particular

Henry  III.  A  further  issue  in  121?  agaih  modified

the  several  provisions  have  not  specifically  been

The  Charta  has  probably  exercised  more  influence  as 
a  statement  of  legal  ngrthology  than  as  a  sober  dociiment 
1         of  the  law.   Coke's  Institutes,  Part  II,  is  in  part  a 
Commentary  on  the  Charta^  and  is  a  classic  statement  of 
constitutional  principle  erected  on  the  skeleton  of  what 
I    is  principally  an  affirmation  of  mediaeval  law  having

ii)  Year  Books  '■' 

The  Year  Books  were,  for  the  most  part,  orginally  issued  separately. 
Previously  issued  Books  were  collected  together  in  Maynard's  Edition,  1678- 
1679»  But  some  of  the  Books  were  not  printed  until  much  later:  20-22  Edward  I 
and  30-35  Edward  I  were  published  by  the  Record  Office,  in  five  volumes,  1866- 
1879;  1-1^  Edward  II  were  published  by  the  Selden  Society  in  Zh   volumes.   The 
Year  Books  are  a  selective  record  of  decisions  of  the  Royal  Judges  in  the  sev- 
eral jurisdictions  from  the  reign  of  Edward  I  (1272-1307)  until  that  of  Henry 
VIII  (1509-15^7) •  Apart  from  their  jurisprudential  value  (they  are  still  cited 
as  authority  in  law)  they  are  an  invaluable  guide  to  social  issues  in  late 
mediaeval  England.  And  in  view  of  the  niimerous  editions,  they  give  an  unequalled 
account  of  the  manner  in  which  successive  generations  of  English  printers  treated 
a  specific  textp  and  present  an  unparallelled  challenge  to  establish  the  text  on 
sound  bibliographical  principles.  They  are  the  forerunners  of  the  Reports»  and 
were  among  the  bases  of  legal  education  in  the  Inns  of  Court.  As  such  they  helped 
formulate  the  central  principle  of  Common  Law  jurisprudence.   As  a  continual 
chronicle  of  English  social  and  intellectual  life  they  are  a  more  impressive 
achievement  than  the  Anglo-Saxon  Chronicle,  even  though  they  are  written  in 
Law  French.   (For  a  recent  statement  on  Law  French,  see  R.J.  Schoeck,  "Law 
French",  New  Catholic  Encyclopaedia  [I967]  VIII,  565-6).

iii)       Law  Rigports. 

The  early  English  reports  are  of  varying  authority;  the  features  aad 
general  reputation  of  each  voliome  are  discussed  in  J.  W.  Wallace,  The 
Reporters  Arranged  and  Characterised,  4th»  edition  by  F,,  P»  Heard, 
(Boston,  1882)  which  surveys  material  to  1776.   Of  the  reports  listed, 
the  most  important  are  those  of  Dyer,  Plowden  and  Coke  for  the  earlier 
laiir;  of  these  Dyer'scases  are  an  invaluable  record  of  English  jurisprudence 
and  manners.  Coke's  ReportsÇ  according  to  Plucknett,  A  Concise  Histoiy  of 
the  Common  Law,  5th.  edition,  London,  1956  p.  280),  were  as  attempt  to  state 
systematically  according  to  historical  form,  the  principles  of  law  as  they 
^rose  in  litigation;however,  "a  case  in  Coke's  Reports  ,  ,  .  is  an  uncertain 
mingling  of  genuine  report,  commentary,  criticism,  elementary  instruction,  and 
recondite  legal  history.  The  whole  is  dominated  by  Coke's  personality,  and 
derives  its  authority  from  him."  The  greatness  of  his  authority,  and  its  place 
in  th«  formulation  of  a  myth  of  the  development  and  nature  of  English  law  is 
discussed,  controversially,  by  Christopher  Hill  in  Intellectual  Origins  of 
the  English  Revolution  (Oxford,  1965  pp.  225-265).  The  whole  movement  to- 
ward the  publication  of  reports  really  provides  the  institutional  basis  of 
Anglo-American  Jurisprudence  by  the  advancement  of  the  central  doctrine  of 
stare  decisis  and  the  accompanyjing  principle  of  ratio  decidendi,  for  which 
see  Julius  Stone,  Legal  System  and  La^^ers'  Reasonings  (London,  1964),  where 
problems  to  whilîh  this  principle  gives  rise  are  discussed. 

Apart  from  their  value  even  today  as  \rorking  instruments  of  the  law, 
the  early  cases,  often  reprinted  long  after  tjae  time  in  whjLch  they  were 
originally  recorded,  provide  the  historian  and  the  bibliographer  with  many 
unique  problems.  Most  of  the  early  reports  are  reprinted  in  Engligh  Re- 
porjiS,  Full  Reprint  (Edinburgh,  1900-1930)  in  176  volumes  with  some  editorial 
annotation;  which  is  supplemented  by  Pre- 186 5  Law  Reports  (New  York,  1960-62) 
containing  4500  card  entries  in  330  volumes.  Early  law  case  have  never  been 
edited  in  accordance  with  modem  standards  of  scholarship,  and  this  lack 
vitiates  many  of  the  uses  to  which  they  can  be  put.  The  reports  included 
in-this  present  Finding  List  are  still  authoritative  in  English  law,  and 
persuasive  in  all  Common  law  jurisdictions.   Generally,  early  decisions 
are  pers^asive  in  American  courts  to  the  extent  that  they  are  consistent 
with  the,  general  conditions  of  the  several  states.  Usually  the  terminal 
date  is  either  July  4,  1776  or  the  date  of  entry  into  the  Union, 

The  bulk  of  the  entries  in  the  Finding  List  are  concerned  with  the 
common  law.   However,  a  few  Chancery  Reports  are  included.  Although  de- 
cisions involving  an  equitable  point  are  found  in  the  Year  Books,  reports 
of  Chancery  proceedings  begin  in  1559»  The  Reports  located  for  this  List 
are  later.

CUL  V)  Abridgements  of  the  law 

The  Abridgements  grew  out  of  the  need  to  have  a  readier  access 
to  the  materials  of  the  Year  Books,  and  were  probably  connected  with 
the  instruction  of  students.  The  earliest  printed  Abridgement  is 
that  of  Stalham  (CLA  9);  but  the  most  important  was  that  of  ^itzher- 
bert  (CLA  5)»  revised  by  Richard  Totell  so  as  to  facilitate  reference 
to  the  decisions  and  to  the  ïear  Books  then  printed.  Totell*  s  editions 
of  the  Year  Books  have  cross  references  to  his  «dition  of  the  Abridge- 
ment. Totell  also  published  Brooke's  Abridgement  (CLA  2-3)  which  in- 
cluded cases  of  the  reign  of  Henry  VIII  not  in  Fitzherbert  and  which 
had  not  been  brougtttup  to  date.  These  works  established  a  tradition 
that  survives  even  today  in  encyclopaedias  and  digests.

vi)   Treatises  on  English  law 

Treatises  of  English  law  date  from  the  twelfth  century. 
The  earliest  recorded  in  this  list  is  Glanville's  De  legibus  et 
consuetudinis  regnJ.  Anglie  tempore  Regis  Henrici  Secundi  ...  ca. 
1187  CLT  58A.  According  to  Plucknett,  Concise  History,  p.  256, 
the  work  known  as  Glanvill  because  it  was  composed  in  his  time, 
"settled  the  method  of  legal  writing  for  many  years  to  come." 
Basically  it  reveals  the  law  of  the  King's  Courts,  as  opposed 
to  the  other  courts  then  exercising  jvirisdiction,  by  illustration

of  a  writ  to  which  was  added  a  commentaryo  The- writ  system, 
or  the  forms  of  action  at  law,  were,  as  Maitland  observed. 
(The  Forms  of  Action  at  Common  Law,  Cambridge  1909  &   reprinted. 
Lecture  I) ,  the  foundation  of  the  Medieval  system  of  law.   The 
substantive  law  could  only  follow  the  right  to  issue  a  writ, 
and  the  competence  of  any  of  the  Royal  Courts  to  entertain  an 
action,  followed  from  the  competence  to  issue  a  writ.  The 
centrality  of  the  forms  of  action  in  the  development  of  the 
Common  Law,  and  their  contribution  to  the  principle  of  stare 
decisis o  represented  in  the  Reports  of  a  later  age,  are  in- 
dispensable. Even  the  modem  law  of  torts  can  often  be  van- 
derstood  in  its  development  only  by  looking  to  the  writs  out 
of  which  the  several  forms  of  action  grew.  Strict  pleading 
of  the  kind  existing  prior  to  the  Judicature  Act.  1873»  and 
still  surviving  in  some  jurisdictions,  (e,go  New  South  Wales) 
derives  from  the  medieval  form  of  action. 

Also  included  in  the  List  (CLT  9-10)  are  early  editions 
of  Braction's  De  legibus  (probably  not  later  than  1256),  Bracton 
studied  the  form  of original  writs,  and  provided  copies  of  relevant 
pleadings,  supplemented  by  reference  to  cases.  The  principles  at 
work  in  his  citations  are  normative  and  do  not  constitute  an  em- 
bryonic form  of  stare  decisis  although  the  later  influence  of  the 
work  helped  to  condition  the  citatory  mode  of  legal  thought  and 
probably  led  to  the  perceptual  framework  in  which  the  Year  Books 
originated.  De  Legibus  represents  the  first  attempt  in  surviying 
treatises  to  compare  the  law  with  Roman  principles,  although  how 
deep  Bracton* s  knowledge  was  is  disputable.  Although  the  reputation 
of  the  De  legibus  varied  in  the  two  and  a  half  centuries  after  its 
composition,  the  printing  of  the  work  in  I569  (CLT  9) ("perhaps  the 
best  printed  law  book"  according  to  Plucknett,  op.  cit. ,  p.  263) 
reestablished  the  centrality  of  the  work  in  the  development  of  legal 
thought,  and  in  its  emphasis  on  the  medieval  doctrine  of  the  sub- 
jection of  the  King  to  God,  the  Law, and  the  (feudal)  court  merged 
into  the  myth  of  the  Common  Law  that  was  to  be  a  potent  factor  in 
the  approach  of  Coke,  and  the  opponents  of  Stuart  absolutism» 

The  influence  of  Bracton  is  evident  in  Fleta,  written 
1290-1292%.  and  printed  by  Selden  in  l6k7   from  the  unique  MS.  in 
the  British  Museum  (CLT  120).  Its  special  importance  rests  on 
its  treatment  of  the  nature  of  the  courts  of  law.  From  the  same 
date  is  Britton,  ascribed  on  no  convincing  grounds  to  John  le 
Breton,  Bp,  of  Hereford.  Britton  is  in  the  form  of  a  code  and 
claims  to  be  issued  cum  priullegio  Regali.-|,  The  popularity  of 
this  work  after  its  composition  can  partially  be  ascribed  to 
its  language,  French;  and  the  obscurity  of  Fleta  to  its  Latin. 
Two  copies  of  Britton  are  recorded  (CLT  13-14), 

For  an  authoritative  survey  of  this  early  legal  literature, 
see  Plucknett,  Early  English  Legal  Literature  (6ambiàdge,  1958) 
and  the  discussion  by  R.J.  Schoeck  in  Nato  Law  Forum,  IV  (1957).

AlBost  two  centuries  were  to  pass  before  the  co»c)osition  of 
the  next  great  English  legal  treatise  of  Tenures  by  Sir  Thomas 
Littleton,  d.  lWl,and,  from  a  professional  point  of  view,  probably 
the  most  influential  work  of  English  law  ever  written.  Divided  into 
three  books.  Book  I  treats  of  the  estates  in  property  available  in 
his  day;  Book  II,  treats  of  the  incidents  of  tenure,  and  Book  III 
with  co-ownership,  and  other  speci4LL  doctrines  of  realty»  For 
three  centuries  it  was  the  basic  textbook  of  the  law  of  real  pro- 
perty. The  first  edition  is  the  folio  printed  by  Lettou  &  Machlinia, 
ca.  1^1  in  French;  editions  of  the  French  text  continued  until  1779. 
English  translations  were  printed  from  the  first  quarter  of  the 
sixteenth  century,  although  the  List  does  not  record  any  copy  before 
1600  (CLT  86-88);  A  bilingual  edition  was  published  in  I67I  (CLT  89). 
Coke  held  that  Of  Tenures  was  the  most  perfect  wcrk  of  any  human 
science,  and  it  provoked  him  to  write  his  own  valuable  Commentary  in 
upon  Litteton,  being  his  Institutes.  Part  I. 

The  medieval  bases  of  the  Common  law  continued  into  the     la 
Renaissance  in  the  publication  of  works  dealing  jAth   procedure. 
Despite  the  humanist  orientation  of  the  More  circle,  and  the  intro- 
duction of  Roman  law  into  the  universities,  the  main  emphasis  of  the 
Tudor  law  was  still  on  the  refinement  of  the  science  of  pleading» 
In  large  part,  this  was  due  to  the  control  of  legal  education  by 
the  Inns  of  Court  and  the  practical  training  they  encoilï'figed,  W, 
Rastell's  Colleccion  of  entrees  (CLT  IO8-IIO)  provides  «  complete 
and  systematic  arrangement  of  fonns  necessary  to  plead  in  King's 
Bench  and  Common  Pleas.  Rastell  also  composed  a  table  for  the  New 
Natura  Brevium  (CLT  53-55)  originally  composed  by  Sir  Anthony  Fita- 
herbert,  which  continues  the  central  position  of  the  forms  of  action, 
yet  indicating  in  its  still  confused  treatment  of  the  tortious  actions, 
trespass  and  trespass  on  the  case,  how  the  substantive  law  could  arise 
out  of  skilful  manipulation  of  the  procedural  law»  Coke's  A  Book  of 
Entries  (CLT  30-31)  continues  this  procedural  tradition  which  survives 
in  substantially  the  same  form  until  the  Judicature  Act.  I873s   see 
Bull en  &  Leake,  Precedents  of  Pleading  in  Actions  in  the  Superior  Courts 
of  Common  La#«  3i*d»  ©d.  (London,  1868)» 

In  the  fifteenth  century  we  have  the  beginnings  of  jurisprudential 
thoughtthat  her^ds  the  Renaissance  in  England.  Sir  John  Fortescue,  C.J,, 
K.B, ,  composed  his  De  Laudibus  legum  Angliae  (CLT  56)  written  for  Prince 
Edward  in  the  form  of  a  dialogue»  Contrasting  the  French  and  English 
methods  of  Government,  it  is  an  early  example  of  the  comparative  method; 
the  account  of  the  Inns  of  Courts  is  invaluable  as  the  earliest  dis- 
cussion of  these  professional  organizations,  the  third  university  of 
England  in  the  Tudor  period»  Fortescue  also  wrote  Ths  Gouemance  of 
England  in  English,  a  work  that  looks  forward  to  the  speculative  5^11*^3- 
pirudence  of  Sir  Thomas  More* s  Utopia»  No  early  edition  of  this  work 
has  so  far  been  located. 

With  the  expansion  of  the  printing  industry,  and  as  yet  undeter- 
mined alterations  to  the  mode  of  legal  education  in  the  Elizabethan  age, 
the  volume  of  legal  treatises  increases,  with  attention  to  exposition 
of  the  law  as  it  relates  to  minor  branches.  The  concern  with  consti- 
tutional law  is  evident  in  Sir  Thomas  Smith's  The  Commonwealth  of 
England  (CLT  128-130)  originally  published  as  De  Republica.  Anglorum.

1583,  in  which  the  extensive  powers  of  the  crown  were  set  forth. 
The  continued  publication  of  treatises  on  this  aspect  of  the  law 
into  the  time  of  the  Protectorate  and  later  attests  to  the  vitiality 
of  constitutional  theory  and  practice,  and  to  the  development  of 
the  myth  of  constitutional  laws  eog»  The  Prerogative  of  Parliaments 
(CLT  106), 

This  myth  itself  was  fostered  by  the  rise  of  legal  antiquarianism 
and  legal  history,  of  which  the  principle  exponents,  apart  from  Coke, 
were  John  Selden  (1534-165^4-)  and  Sir  William  Dugdale  (l605-86).  (See 
R.J.Schoeck,  "Early  Anglo-Saxon  Studies  and  Legal  Scholarship,  in  the 
Renaissance",  Studies  in  the  Renaissance,  v  [1958], 102-110) ..  Selden' s 
vast  learning  in  English,  Roman  and  Jewish  law  is  reflected  in  a 
number  of  items  scattered  throughout  the  whole  Finding  List»  and  the 
thoroughness  of  his  scholarship  still  makes  his  observations  of  value 
(see  CLT  120-123).  Dugdale' s  Origines  iuridicales  (CLT  k6)   is  like- 
wise an  important  study'  of  legal  institutions  based  on  the  historical 
method.  The  cbnnection  between  this  method  and  constitutional  law  is 
clearly  to  be  seen  in  the  works  of  William  Prynne  (I60O-I669),"  an 
historian  of  extraordinary  learning"  who  wrote  both  on  constitutional 
law  (CLT  103)  and  on  common  law  jurisdiction  (CLT  104) , 

Constitutional  law  was  in  the  Renaissance  closely  related  to 
the  criminal  law,  and  the  Finding  List  locates  two  important  works 
in  this  field.  Sir  William  Stanford's  Les  Pleas  del  Coron  (ClT  135- 
136)  is  the  earliest  treatise  specifically  devoted  to  an  exposition 
of  the  principles  of  the  criminal  law,  and  is  distinguished  by  its 
learning  as  well  as  by  its  reliance  on  the  Reports  and  even  the  law 
books  of  the  thirteenth  century  as  bases  on  which  to  formulate  prin- 
ciple. Sir  Matthew  Hale's  Historia  Placitorum  coronae  (CLT  60), 
published  after  his  death,  is  noted  for  its  authoritative  survey  of 
a  still  obscure  branch  of  legal  history. 

Of  wider  importance  than  their  subject  matter  would  appear  to 
indicate  are  the  several  works  on  Conveyancingo   Just  as  a  knowledge 
of  pleading  aiffected  the  substantive  law  in  the  courts,  the  art  of 
conveyancing  (the  art  of  drawing  documents  so  as  best  to  effect  the 
intentions  of  the  parties)  had  to  be  consistent  with  the  substantive 
law,  and  yet  could  through  skilful  manipulation  create  new  areas  of 
the  law.  The  express  intentions  of  the  Statute  of  Uses.  1535,  was 
defeated  by  the  ingenuity  of  the  conveyancer,  and  led  to  the  method 
whereby  realty  could  be  vested  in  a  femme  sole,  and  even  in  the  wife» 
In  the  seventeenth  and  eighteenth  centuries  the  ifflpoirtance  of  settled 
landed  estates  was  partly  due  to  the  invention  of  the  shifting  use, 
or  use  upon  a  use,  ascribed  to  the  ingenuity  of  Sir  Orlando  Bridgman: 
see  CLT  12,  West's  Simboleography  (CLT  1^5)  is  of  interest  for  its 
Tudor  material,   John  Perkins*  A  profitable  book  (CLT  96-99)  is  of 
little  authority,  being  more  or  less  inaccurate  in  translation,  and 
the  seventeenth  century  editions  in  the  Finding  List  contain  an 
accumulation  of  errors.  Only  the  original  French  Texts  published 
between  1528  and  15^5  are  reliable,  but  no  copies  of  these  have  yot 
been  located. 

Dominating  the  development  of  the  common  law  in  this  peiriod  are 
the  figures  of  Sir  Edward  Coke,  and  Francis  Bacon,  Baron  Verulam  and

Viscount  Sto  Albans,  In  many  ways  Coke's  work  is  the  siimmation  of  the 
medieval  tradition  of  the  law,  while  Bacon  looks  forward  to  the  newer 
generation  that  found  institutional  expression  in  the  Great  Rebellion, 
Coke's  learning  and  opinions  extended  over  most  of  the  branches  of  the 
common  law.  His  Reports  (CLR  I6-I8)  have  been  referred  to  in  that 
section  of  the  Finding  List,  Of  the  treatises  his  Institutes  sought  to 
éxpoxind  and  to  interpret  the  law  as  he  understood  its   apart  from  the 
Commentary  on  Littleton,  which  was  his  contribution  to  the  advancement  of 
the  law  of  real  property,  the  Institutes  covered  exposition  of  many 
ancient  and  other  Statutes,  (Part  II)  which  was  his  contribution  to  cons- 
titutional laws   Pleas  of  the  Crown  and  Criminal  Causes  (Part  III);  and 
Jurisdiction  of  Courts  (Part  IV)  touching  the  law  of  procedure  in  general. 
His  The  Compleat  copy  holder  made  an  individual  contribution  both  to 
legal  history  and  to  social  history  by  advancing  the  proposition  that 
a  cppy  holder,  holding  by  the  custom  of  the  manor,  had  a  right  of  action 
on  the  Court  of  Common  Pleas,  Available  editions  of  Coke's  works  are 
listed  at  CLT  21-33o  In  addition  to  the  creation  of  the  myth  of  the 
common  law,  these  works  are  important  for  the  creation  of  an  attitude 
towards  the  medieval  law,  and  a  tendency  not  to  look  beyond  Coke  to 
the  authorities  themselves,  especially  the  Year  Books,  The  Institutes 
were  the  first  systematic  account  of  English  law  written  in  English, 
and  in  his  application  of  reason  to  the  mass  of  the  law  as  it  then 
stood,  repudiated  claims  that  uncritically  supported  the  Crowns  e.g,, 
John  Cowell's  The  Interpreter  (CLT  ^'^-JS)   that  sought  to  codify  the 
law  in  accordance  with  the  needs  of  the  prerogative. 

Bacon's  legal  writings  are  small  in  comparison  to  his  philo- 
sophical output;  but  the  inductive  method  that  he  brought  to  bear 
on  other  issues  was  to  exercise  influence  in  the  law  because  of 
the  high  legal  offices  he  held.  His  essay  Of  Judicature  better 
than  his  immediately  professional  works  indicates  his  outlooks 
the  judge's  office  is  .jus  dicere,  not  .jus  dare.  Unlike  Coke, 
Bacon  placed  his  primaiy  emphasis  on  justice,  and  fairness,  even 
in  the  conduct  of  the  case,  and  insisted  on  the  profession's  main- 
taining of  high  standard  of  ethics.  Much  of  his  attitude  was  due 
to  his  position  as  Lord  Chancellorj  asi  office  that  introduces  us  to 
Equity,  the  other  great  branch  of  English  law^  that  developed  mainly 
from  the  Renaissance,  and  received  its  perfection  in  the  eighteenth 

Even  in  the  middle  ages,  the  common  lawyers  would  invoke 
"conscience"  as  a  basis  on  which  to  rectify  palpable  wrongs  of 
the  procedural  system;  but  there  was  no  right  attaching  to  this 
and  no  theory  of  equitable  relief  then  existed.  With  the  publi- 
cation of  Christopher  St,  German's  Dialogues  between  a  Doctor  of 
Divinity  and  a  Student  of  the  Common  Law.,  ca,  1528  in  Latin,  and 
1530  in  English  (in  part)  and  1532  the  whole  text  in  English,  and 
later  reprinted  (CLT  117-118)  we  have  a  systematic  claim  for  equity. 
In  this  work  it  was  argued  that  there  existed  a  philosophical  justi- 
fication for  equity  located  in  the  canon  law;  that  equity  was  necessary 
to  avoid  injustice;  and  that  equity  derived  its  principles  from  "con-

Plucknett,  Concise  History,  p.  699<«  observes  that  the 
principles  enunciated  in  Doctor  and  Student  were  adopted  by 
Lord  Ellesraere  as  the  foundation  of  the  Chancery  Jurisdiction. 
Certaine  Observations  Concerning;  the  Office  of  the  Lord  Chan- 
cellor, under  his  name,  (CLT  48)  reflect  the  doctrines  that 
he  sought  to  advance. 

The  danger  of  any  absolute  separation  of  law  and  equity 
in  this  period  is  seen  in  the  writings  of  William  Lainbard  (CLT 
76-81)0  An  historian  of  some  note,  he  was  for  a  time  Mastery  in 
Chancery,  and  the  author  of  a  nuiriber  of  works  of  the  common  law. 
His  Eirenarchas  or  of  the  offices  of  the  Justices  of  Peace  was 
long  the  standard  authority  on  this  branch  of  the  law,  which 
more  than  most  of  the  learned  treatises  above  referred  to  affected 
the  daily  life  of  the  countiy. 

Other  works  in  the  Finding  List,  often  important  in  'terras 
of  their  contribution  to  specific  branches  of  the  law,  have  been 
omitted  from  discussiono   It  ought  be  clear  however  that  the  study 
of  the  law,  and  of  equity,  is  indispensable  to  any  understanding 
of  English  society  in  the  Renaissance.  For  a  study  of  current 
work,  and  some  guides,  the  student  may  turn  to  R.J.  Schoeck,

by  PoD.Hoeniger,  Director 

The  Centre  recently  received  a  gift  of  $2,500  from  the  New  York  Associates  of 
the  University  of  Toronto,  for  development  of  its  lihraiy.  This  gift  will  he  mainly 
spent  on  our  project  of  developing  a  humanist  scholar's  and  Renaissance  gentleman's 
library  in  replica.  an  eiivel. 

The  Public  Lectures  by  Professor  Roland  Sainton  of  Yale  University  on  January 
14-15  on  "Erasmus  and  the  Liberal  Catholic  Reform"  and  "Erasmus  and  the  Protestant 
Reform"  were  attended  by  an  enthusiastic  audience,  which  increased  from  I50  to  300 
for  the  second  lecture.  Since  then,  Professor  Sainton  has  sent  us  two  fat  parcels..  .,  ,^  „., 
of  xeroxes  of  booklets  and  offprints  dealing  with  Erasmus  and  similar  subjects,  as 
well  as  a  xerox  of  the  unique  copy  of  the  poems  of  Guil»  Hermannus  of  Gouda  at  the 
Pierpont  Morgan  Library,  which  includes  Erasmus'  second  earliest  publication  (the 
first  was  his  commendation  of  Gaguin's  history,  of  which  the  centre  has  a  copy 
dated  1528).  Professor  Sainton  also  suggested  that  we  écrite  the  Schwenkf elder  Library 
in  Pennsylvania  from  which  we  have  since  received  as  a  gift  the  19  volumes  of  the 
works  of  the  leading  anabaptist  reformer  Johannes  Schwenckfeld. 

Ti/o  of  the  Centre's  Fellows  this  year,  Germaine  Warkentin  and  Jane  Couchman, 
are  engaged  in  research  on  the  books  which  Montaigne,  Sir  Philip  Sidney  and  Spenser 
read.  This  is  one  part  of  the  preparatory  work  for  our  humanist  gentleman's  library, 
Mrso  Warkentin  is  also  preparing  a  list  of  Renaissance  school-books,  while  Mrs, 
Couchman  is  preparing  a  specialized  catalogue  of  total  holdings  in  Toronto  libraries 
by  and  on  Montaigne,  Duplessis-Momay  and  Charron.  We  already  have  such  catalogues 
on  Rabelais,  Luther,  Calvin,  Melanchthon  and  Sutzer  which  can  be  consulted  in  the 
Centre.  Sally  Kaplan,  another  Fellow,  is  continuing  the  work  of  preparing  a  catalogue 
of  all  STC  books  (i.e.  English  books  printed  before  I6kl)   which  exist  in  facsimile 
or  reprint.  Many  of  these  reprints  are  not  well  known  by  scholars,  being  hidden  away 
in  the  volumes  of  the  Percy  Society  or  God  knows  where.  When  the  list  becomes 
reasonably  complete  it  should  be  of  great  value  to  scholars  in  our  university  which 
happens  to  be  singularly  poor  in  original  STC  holdings  (though  of  course  UTL  does 
have  the  Ann  Arbor  microfilms). 

With  a  view  primarily  to  organizing  the  strategy  of  our  acquisitions  policy  for 
the  next  few  years,  the  Centre's  Director  recently  prepared  a  statement  estimating  what 
has  80  far  been  accomplished  in  developing  the  Centre's  research  library.  We  have 
acquired  about  6OOO  volumes  since  1964  concerning  approximately  the  period  14-50  to  1680, 
of  which  about  1000  are  sixteenth  or  seventeenth-century  books.  To  become  truly  use- 
ful, the  library  will  have  to  reach  an  initial  size  of  20-25,000  volumes.  The  core 
of  our  library  is  of  course  the  Erasmus  collection,  one  of  the  best  on  the  continent. 
We  have  by  now  acquired  a  considerable  collection  of  humanistic  editions  of  classics, 
of  which  a  separate  list  has  been  prepared.  The  bibliographical  collection  has  had 
a  good  start.  In  most  other  areas,  the  lacunae  are  still  too  obvious,  though  many 
basic  texts  have  been  acquired  and  many  books  are  unavailable  elsewhere  in  Toronto, 
We  are  especially  proud  of  a  small  collection  of  Renaissance  mythographers,  including 
Natalis  Comes,  Piccinelli,  Ripa,  Alciati,  Cartari,  Hyginus  and  the  like.  Apart  from 
developing  our  hiimanistic  project,  in  the  next  few  years  there  will  probably  be  special 
emphasis  on  English  and  French  literature  and  related  history  and  thought,  so  as  to 
satisfy  the  large  numbers  of  staff  and  graduate  students  in  these  fields.  For  the 
reformation,  we  have  decided  to  concentrate  on  the  German-Swiss  reformers  and  all 
German  reformers  except  Luther.  Much  of  the  latter  material  will  be  acquired  in 
microfilm  or  some  other  form  of  photographic  reproduction,  though  we  always  believe 
that  a  few  original  books  have  special  appeal  suad  educational  value.

We  are  greatly  concerned  by  the  lack  of  private  book-collectors  in  Canada,  and 
hope  soon  to  offer  prizes  to  encourage  the  art  among  undergraduates  and  graduates. 

We  wish  to  repeat  oior  appeal  to  local  scholars  in  the  Renaissance  or  Reformation 
to  send  us  copies  of  their  offprints.  Surely  a  collection  of  such  materials  by  scholars 
to  whom  this  Bulletin  is  sent  would  itself  be  of  real  interest.  We  have  made  some 
advance  with  a  collection  of  this  kind  on  Erasmus»   We  hope  shortly  to  acquire  a 
collection  of  Spenser  offprints.  As  you  read  this,  please  drop  some  into  an  envelope, 
and  send  them  to  F.D.Hoeniger  at  Victoria  College. 


The  Editors  of  the  Bulletin  are  informed  by  E.M.Beame  of  the  Department  of  History, 
McMaster  University  that  the  following  papers  have  been  arranged,  at  the  time  of  going 
to  press  (April )f 

"Vergilian  Recollections  in  Italian  Renaissance  Art",  by  A. G. McKay  (McMaster  University) 

"Calvin  and  the  Legal  Profession",  by  W„ Stanford  Reid  (University  of  Guelph) 

"The  Early  High  Renaissance  Musicians  as  Stylists",  by  Rika  Maniâtes  (University  of 

"Spenser  and  the  Renaissance  Orpheus",  by  T.H.Cain  (McMaster  University) 

copy 'of  n 
"Ben  Johnson  and  Machiavelli:  Some  Shifts  in  English  Political  Orientation",  by 
Philip  London  (University  of  Windsor) 

■"The  Italian  Humanists  on  the  Sacraments",  by  Charles  Trinkaus  (Sarah  Lal^^^ence  College) 

There  will  also  be  an  exhibit  of  the  Italian  materials  available  at  the  McMaster 
Library,  arranged  by  Thomas  Cain,  whose  account  of  this  collection  follows  in  the 
present  issue  of  the  Bulletin.  In  addition,  those  attending  will  be  entertained  by 
a  presentation  of  Machiavelli' s  Mandragola» 


The  flood  of  November  ^■,   1966  and  its  disastrous  effect  on  Florentine  libraries, 
especially  the  National  Central  Library,  is  well-kno\m.  The  library  reopened  on  a 
partial  basis  in  the  spring  of  196?,,  offering  to  readers  its  excellent  reference 
collection,  the  manuscripts,  and  the  sixteenth-century  editions  on  the  shelves  of 
the  Sala  del  Rinascimento.  These  were  on  the  second  floor  and  consequently  were 
untouched  by  the  waters.   Still  unavailable  to  readers  was  the  stack  collection  of 
three  to  four  million  items  and  the  catalogues  housed  on  the  main  floor»   On  January 
8,  1968,  the  library  officially  reopened  to  the  public  mth  the  bulk  of  the  collection 
available,  and  services  restored  on  a  limited  but  satisfactory  basis.  I  was  in 
Florence  on  that  date  and  for  a  fenf   days  aften^rard,  and  would  like  to  report  on  the 
state  of  the  library.

First,  the  catalogues  have  heen  almost  completely  restoredo  The  large  hand- 
iiTTitten  folio  volumes  of  the  Palatina  and  Magliahechiana  collections  have  "been 
replaced  "by  type-i>rritten  cards  for  the  former  and  Xeroxed  handwritten  slips  for  the 
latter»  The  "author  catalogue  since  1886"  is  also  restored  with  the  exception  of 
part  of  "G"  which  was  expected  to  be  ready  in  a  few  days.  In  addition,  there  is 
an  unexpected  "bonus  for  the  reader.  Several  of  the  older  small  collections  which 
had  their  oivn  separate  catalogues  (for  example,  the  Nencini  collection)  have  "been 
incorporated  into  the  Palatina  catalogue»  This  means  that  the  scholar  searching 
for  a  volume  published  before  the  twentieth  century  need  check  only  three  author 
catalogues  rather  than  the  four  or  more  of  the  past»  The  periodical  catalogue  and 
the  new  acquisitions  catalogue  are  also  restored,  but  the  subject  catalogue  is  not 
ready»  This  is  regrettable  but  users  will  recall  that  it  was  recently  begun,  small, 
and  of  limited  use.   The  entire  catalogue  has  been  placed  in  new,  easy-to-use  metal 
trays,  and  these  have  been  located  in  the  large,  well-lighted  central  lobby.  My 
impression  is  that  the  catalogue  is  easier  to  use  than  in  the  past. 

How  much  of  the  stack  collection  is  available  to  readers?  According  to  news- 
paper accounts  and  the  librarians,  about  two-thirds  of  the  stack  collection  is  avail- 
able. }fy   experience  in  the  few  days  in  which  I  used  the  library  confirms  this 
estimate.  I  obtained  about  three- fourths  of  my  requests  of  sixteenth- century  editions 
and  twentieth-centuiy  secondary  works.   In  the  catalogue  room  are  posted  lists  of  the 
range  of  shelf  marks  of  the  sections  which  were  flooded.  But  if  in  doubt,  one  should 
request  the  book  and  hope  for  the  best.  Often  it  simply  depends  on  how  high  the 
waters  came  in  a  certain  area  of  the  stacks.   In  addition,  as  anyone  who  has  used 
the  older  materials  in  the  library  remembers,  there  are  many  duplicate  copies  of 
sixteenth- century  books  in  the  various  collections»  The  chances  are  fairly  good  that 
one  can  find  a  copy  of  a  desired  title. 

At  present  the  hours  of  the  library  are  9  a.m.  to  1  p.m.  and  2  p.m.  to  6  p.m., 
and  on  Saturday,  9  a.m.  to  1  p.m.  The  Sale  di  Consultazione,  Sala  del  Rinascimento, 
and  Sala  dei  Manoscritti  are  open  for  this  entire  period»   One  may  request  books 
from  the  stacks  at  any  time  but  they  are  delivered  only  during  the  morning  hours. 
There  is  also  limited  external  borrowing» 

The  work  of  restoration  of  the  books  and  of  the  bviilding  continues.  The  director 
and  his  staff,  aided  by  funds  and  students  from  all  over  the  world  (including  the 
University  of  Toronto)  have  done  a  magnificent  job  in  getting  the  library  back  into 
operation  so  soon.  But  much  remains  to  be  done  and  the  library  can  certainly  use 
financial  help.  Perhaps  it  is  easiest  to  send  contributions  directly  to  the  Direttore, 
Dott.  Emanuele  Casamassima,  Biblioteca  Nazionale  Centrale,  Pirenze» 

While  in  Florence  I  also  visited  another  flooded  library,  that  of  the  Facolta 
di  Lettere  e  Filosofia  of  the  Universita  dei  Studi  in  the  Piazza  Brunelleschi.  On 
my  first,  brief  visit  I  fo\and  that  the  entire  catalogue  is  available  to  the  public 
although  restoration  work  on  it  continues»  A  few  days  later  I  returned  and  found 
that  the  Facolta  was  "occupied"  by  students  who  were  protesting  that  the  University 
Reform  bill  proposed  by  the  government  was  insufficient.  Although  there  were  no 
students  or  professors  about  (plenty  of  signs,  however),  the  Fadolta  was  officially 
occupied  and  the  library  remained  closed  for  the  rest  of  my  stay  in  Florence. 

The  important  thing  is  that  the  National  Central  Library  is  again  fimctioning. 
This  is  good  news  for  Renaissance  scholars.

'  "  'by  Thomas  H.  Cain 


In  1965  McMaster  University  acquired  atout  180  "books,  mainly  of  the  Italian 
Renaissance,  collected  by  Aldo  Caselli(d.  I966),  an  Italian  husinessman  and  scholar 
who  lived  in  the  United  States  during  World  War  II  and  taiight  for  a  time  at  Haverford 
College.  Mr.Caselli's  concern  in  assembling  these  books  seems  to  have  been  mainly 
bibliophilie, with  particular  emphasis  on  the  history  of  printing;  thus  his  collection 
contains  many  items  of  interest  to  the  bibliographer  and  typophile.  But  the  collection 
also  has  some  other  areas  of  strength.   In  the  notes  that  follow,  I  have  attempted 
to  indicate  these  and  mention  books  relevant  to  each. 

INCUNABULA  (listed  by  date)  -^*   ^;^".--ui  vzin  ni.

type  specimens)

Among  the  later  iDOOks  of  the  collection  students  of  the  history  of  printing  -will 
find  the  sixteenth-century  printers  Aldus,  Giolito,  Marcolini,  and  the  Giunti  well 
represented,   (There  are  also  a  few  modern  hooks  of  typographical  interest,  including 
the  Bodoni  Yirgil  and  books  printed  by  Maillol») 



Nearly  all  the  books  below  were  written  or  printed  in  the  l6th  century.  They

guished  man  of  letters  who  \in?ote  on  the  philosophy  and 
methods  of  history,  on  economics  and  on  witchcraft  as  well 
as  producing  the  most  important  work  on  constitutional  law 
\\rritten  in  l6th  c.  France,  He  studied  law  at  Toulouse  and 
taught  there  for  a  while.  After  practicing  law  in  Paris, 
he  entered  the  service  of  the  Duke  d'Alençon.  Finally  he 
was  made  avocat  du  roi  at  Laon. 

His  Republic  of  1576,  significant  for  its  development 
of  the  theory  of  sovereignty,  drew  not  only  from  treatises 
on  political  theory  but  also  on  the  practice  of  French  law 
and  administration.

the  reign  of  Louis  XIV.  He  worked  as  an  avocat  du  roi  in  the

publish  his  legal  works,  considered  "epochmaking"  by  W.F. Church. 
His  goal  was  to  reorder  all  of  French  law  according  to 
principles  of  rationality  and  Christian  morality.

111;  French  Customary  Law, 

The  redaction  of  French  customary  law  was  first  ordered  by  the  king 
in  Ik^k   and  publications  had  appeared  for  most  parts  of  France  by  the 
end  of  the  l6th  century.  The  customs  of  each  area  were  "discovered"  at 
a  meeting  of  the  three  estates  of  the  province  and  then  written  down  and 
published  with  commentaries.   While  "old-fashioned"  jurists  like  Barthélémy 
de  Chasseneuz  and  Guy  Coquille  believe  that  such  editions  should  simply 
record  the  actual  customary  law  of  the  people,  jurists  like  Charles 
Dumoulin  worked  toward  its  unification  and  rationalization.  Supporters 
of  monarchial  power  believed  the  king  stood  above. the  customary  law  and 
could  change  it  as  required.  The  works  below  are  only  a  small  fraction 
of  the  many  editions   of  customary  law  produced  in  France  in  the  l6th 
and  17th  centuries.

DUMOULIN,  CHARLES,  During  his  life  time,  Dumoulin  -i^nrote  an  important 
commentary  on  the  customs  of  Paris  and  other  commentaries  on  the 
customary  law  of  many  parts  of  France.  The  latter  was  first  published 
under  the  title  of  Grand  Coustumier  general,  contenant  toutes  les 
coustumes  generalles  et  particulières  du  royaume  de  France  et  des 
Gaulles.  His  commentaries  on  these  customs,  on  those  of  Paris  and 
those  of  the  Bourbonnais  are  reprinted  without  the  laws  in  vol.  Ill 
of  his  Opera  (see  Rom  ^2).  Also  reprinted  there,  is  a  speech  urging 
the  unification  of  the  customs  of  France.

important  work  on  customary  law  listed  below,  Loisel  took  a  position 
very  different  from  Coquille,  He  thought  the  customs  could  be

iv)   Royal  Edicts  and  Decrees  of  the  Parlement  of  Paris. 

''    The  publication  of  royal  ordinances  and  decrees  of  the  Parlement  of 
Paris,  whose  decisions  served  to  interpret  the  royal  will,  seems  to  have 
developed  a  little  more  slowly  in  Prance  than  in  England.   While  the 
Tudors  had  specific  printers  who  did  their  proclamations  and  publicity 
from  the  late  fifteenth  century,  in  Prance  such  work  was  done  sometimes  by 
the  King's  Printer,  and  sometimes  by  a  private  printer  who  had  used  his 
influence  to  obtain  the  privilege.   Only  in  the  years  1559-61  was  such 
printing  explicitly  defined  as  one  of  the  functions  of  the  Royal  Printer, 

At  first  printed  ordinances  and  decrees  were  used  mostly  by  lai^ryers 
and  administrators;  but  by  I56O  there  was  enough  concern  about  the  state 
of  the  law  that  the  cahier  of  the  Nobles  at  the  Est at es- General  of  Orleans 
demanded  that  all  laws  henceforth  be  printed.   In  the  last  half  of  the 
sixteenth  century,  jurists  like  Rebuffi,  Fontanon  and  Brisson  prepared 
unofficial  collections  of  ordinances  and  decrees  for  the  convenience 
of  the  legal  profession. 

A  certain  amount  of  government  printing  was  also  done  locally  (see 
Fr  31).  This  was  not  merely  because  Royal  Printers  were  appointed  in 
centers  like  Lyon  as  well  as  in  Paris,  but  also  because  proclamations 
were  made  by  officers  of  Sénéchaussée  and  Bailliages  and  by  to-i«i  councils. 
By  the  mid- sixteenth  century,  city  ordinances  were  not  only  cried  by  the 
to\«i  crier  but  often  printed  and  posted. 

The  University  of  Toronto  Library  has  over  75  items  that  fall  into  the 
category  of  royal  edicts  and  decrees  of  Parlements,  many  of  them  acquired 
with  the  Will  Collection  on  the  Huguenots.   This  listing  is  confined  to 
individual  edicts  and  decrees  printed  up  to  I6IO,  collections  made  in  the 
16th  and  17th  centuries,  and  several  items  submitted  by  the  Law  School  of 
McGill  University.  The  bulk  of  the  Toronto  holdings  fall  in  the  17th 
century.   The  items  are  listed  chronologically  by  the  date  of  the  edition.

v)   Pleas 

After  1535»  all  pleading  in  French  courts  was  carried  on  in 
French.  Ultimately  this  was  to  give  great  scope  to  vernacular  eloquence 
in  France  (unlike  the  situation  in  England,  where  pleading  continued 
in  Law  French).  As  Catherine  Holmes  has  shoim,  the  pleas  of  out- 
standing la^^ryers  in  the  17th  century  were  of  interest  to  the  public 
and  there  was  competition  between  layers  and  preachers  to  see  who 
could  put  on  the  best  performance.

A  brief  history  and  analysis  of  the  laws  of  Sweden,  civil, 
ecclesiastical  and  criminal.   StiemhQOk  collected  the 
materials  from  old  documents,  instruments,  histories  and 
collections  of  provincial  law.   [This  work  first  appeared 
in  1672.] 


In  this  section  are  included  works  on  international  law,  works  comparing 
the  laws  of  different  countries  and  periods,  works  on  civil  and  canon 
law,  Roman  and  customary  law  or  combinations  thereof.  The  authors  are 
arranged  alphabetically  by  their  country  of  birth:   Dutch,  English, 
French,  German,  Italian,  Spanish. 


CORYIN,  JOHANN  ARNOLD  (do  I650).  Bom  in  Leyden,  Corvin  became  a 
Reformed -.preacher.  He  was  a  supporter  of  the  views  of  Arminius 
against  predestination  and  absolute  depravity,  ajid  published  a 
defense  of  his  views  in  I613.  Relieved  of  his  post  by  the  Synod  of 
Dort  in  I6I9,  he  went  abroad  with  other  Remonstrants,   He  then 
studied  law  at  Orléans  and  ultimately  returned  to  Holland  to 
practice  law  at  the  Hague  and  in  Amsterdam,  where  his  legal  advice 
was  often  sought  by  the  magistrates.  He  ;^ote  treatises  on  civil

of  Holland  -  Zeeland  &  the  city  of  Rotterdam,  Arrested  and  imprisoned 
as  Remonstrant  leader  in  I6I8,  he  escaped  from  prison  to  spend  the  rest 
of  his  life  in  exile,  serving  among  other  things  as  Swedish  ambassador 
to  Prance. 

His  interest  in  international  law  had  first  developed  in  connection 
with  a  booty  case  that  he  had  argued  as  a  young  man  for  the  Dutch 
East  India  Company.   His  great  treatise  on  the  subject,  De  Jure  belli 
ac  pacis,  written  while  he  was  in  France,  sought  to  justify  the  Ism 
of  nature  and  of  nations  not  on  the  basis  of  The  Bible  or  Christianity, 
but  on  the  basis  of  man's  nature  as  a  social  and  rational  beiiig.   On  the 
unchangeable  universal  principles  of  natural  law,  international  law 
must  be  built  and  guaranteed  by  the  sanctity  of  covenants  between  rulers.

In  his  notice  to  the  reader,  Leonard  explains  how  he 
happened  to  prepare  this  collection.  Having  printed  some  peace 
treaties  separately  at  royal  command,  he  thought  it  would  be 
useful  to  put  together  all  peace  treaties  made  since  1598. 
Then  he  realized  that  the  Treaty  of  Vervins  of  1598  could  not 
be  understood  without  reference  to  the  Treaty  of  Cat eau- Cambré si s 
of  1559.  Ultimately  he  realized  that  to  show  the  relations  of 
France  with  the  House  of  Austria  and  other  neighbors,  he  would 
have  to  go  back  to  1^35»  He  was  aided  by  royal  officers  and 
administrators  in  finding  the  older  treaties.

travelled  and  studied  in  Italy.  He  became  a  practising  la\fyeT 
and  legal  adviser  to  the  city  of  Frankfurt»  He  \in?ote  on  Roman 
law  and  served  as  editor  of  the  following  collection,  which  itself 
may  have  been  inspired  by  his  Italian  visit,

Imperial  privilege  for  8  years.  Dedication  of  Fichard 
to  Prince  George,  Administrator  General  of  the  Teutonic 
Order,  dated  Frankfort,  April,  I568.  Feyerabend  had  asked 
him  to  edit  this  book  of  opinions  on  civil  and  canon  law. 
Fichard  adds  his  o;m  sentences  to  the  section  by  Villalobos. 
Fichard' s  son  Raimond  Pius  also  helped  edit  the  work.   For 
details  on  the  individual  treatises,  see  under  the  names 
of  the  authors  in  the  Italian  and  Spanish  sections. 
[Presented  by  the  University  of  Strassburg  to  the  University 
of  Toronto  in  1891  after  the  fire  of  1890.  Some  marginalia]. 

PUFENDORF,  SAMUEL  (l632-l69^).   Bom  in  Chemnitz,  Saxony,  son  of 
a  Lutheran  pastor,  Pufendorf  studied  theology  at  Leipzig  and 
then  jurisprudence,  mathematics,  and  natural  law  at  Jena.   His 
first  work  on  international  law,  the  Elementa  Jurisprudent iae 
Universalis,  was  published  in  Leiden  in  1661  and  dedicated  to 
Karl  Ludwig,  Elector  of  the  Palatinate.  He  was  rewarded  with 
a  newly  created  chair  at  Heidelberg  in  the  Law  of  Nature  and 
Nations.   In  I67O,  he  became  professor  at  the  University  of  Lund  in 
Sweden  and  it  was  there  he  i^rrote  his  celebrated  De  Jure  naturae 
(1672)  and  the  De  officio  hominis  (I673).   In  1677  he  became  royal 
historiographer  at  Stockholm  and  turned  his  interests  primarily  to 
history  and  theology.   In  I686  he  moved  to  Berlin  as  historiographer 
of  the  Great  Elector  of  Brandenburg.  A  few  years  before  his  death 
he  received  his  title  of  Baron, 

Like  Hobbes,  he  maintained  the  priority  of  natural  law  over 
positive  law,  but  viewed  the  state  of  nature  as  a  more  peaceful 
affair  than  did  Hobbes.

in  1535»  he  had  purchased  a  seigneury  at  Farges,  not  far  from  Geneva. 
His  correspondence  with  Calvin  began  in  the  late  15^0 's.  After 
Servatus'  death  he  went  back  to  Padua  to  teach,  but  was  forced  to 
flee  to  Farges  because  of  his  religious  views.   In  his  last  years 
he  taught  at  Grenoble  (1559-60 )  and  Tubingen  and  maintained  contact 
I  with  the  ant i- Trinitarian s  Valentino  Gentile  and  Giorgio  Biandrata.

This  group  of  musicians  was  brought  together  in  October  1963  by  Christine 
Mather»  It  gave  several  radio  programs  during  the  1963-6^1-  season,  and  its  first 
public  concert  in  April  196A-,  and  shortly  thereafter  the  group  was  renamed  the 
"Manitoba  University  Consort»"  The  consort's  members  for  the  past  four  years  have 
been  the  same  two  singers  and  five  players:   Christine  Mather  and  Peggie  Sampson, 
both  of  the  University,  Paul  Palmer,  Joyce  Redekop-Penner,  Phyllis  Thomson,  Victor 
Martens,  and  Harold  Vogt»  Besides  concerts  at  the  University  of  Manitoba  and  for 
CBC  Winnipeg,  the  group  has  toured  in  Western  Canada,  Britainp  the  UoS»A»ç,  and 
Europe»  The  consort  has  at  its  disposal  a  very  large  collection  of  early  instru- 
ments: viols,  vielle?  rebec?  lute,  psaltery,  recorders,  krummhoms,  rauschpfeiffen, 
dulzian,  sha\inns,  cornetti,  racket,  portative,  bells,  percussion,  harpsichord  and 
spinet»  The  repertoire  of  the  Consort  covers  the  period  of  roughly  1200-1750? 
programs  usually  take  in  either  the  entire  period,  or  are  confined  to  pre- 1600» 
At  the  University  of  Manitoba,  programs  tend  to  be  either  more  specialised, 
possibly  concentrating  on  the  works  of  a  particular  composer,  or  more  experimental, 
such  as  a  recent  light-hearted  attempt  to  enact  Adam  de  la  Halle's  "Robin  and 
Marion»"  Music  is  taken  from  scholarly  editions  as  far  as  possible,  library  res^ 
ources  being  somewhat  restricted,  but  it  is  hoped  to  build  up  a  sufficient  micro- 
film collection  to  enable  the  consort's  repertoire  to  be  based  on  transcriptions 
taken  direct  from  primary  sources,  without  having  to  rely  so  heavily  on  existing 
transcriptions»  This  year  the  Consort  is  at  rest  while  members  pursue  adAranced 
studies  in  a  variety  of  places»  In  the  fall  of  1969  the  Consort  hopes  to  assemble 
again  at  the  University  of  Manitoba  to  begin  work  on  an  entirely  new  set  of  pro- 
grams and  to  continue  touring  as  before»

The  University  of  Toronto  has  recently  acquired  the  large  collection  of  hooks 
and  manuscripts  of  James  Forhes  (1629-1712),  first  nonconformist  minister  of  Gloucester, 
England»   Though  some  of  Forhes'  hooks  may  have  disappeared  over  the  years,  the  body 
of  the  lihrary  is  intact»  The  possihilities  for  research  in  this  collection  are 
myriad,  and  Renaissance  and  Reformation  hopes  to  explore  some  of  them  in  the  course 
of  this  year.  This  issue  is  devoted  especially  to  l6th  century  materials  in  the 
collectiono  Michael  Finlayson  of  the  Department  of  History  has  introduced  Reverend 
Forbes  and  has  commented  on  the  religious  significance  of  the  l6th  century  English 
items»  Natalie  Z»  Davis  has  looked  at  the  continental  editions  and  authors  as  they 
might  bear  on  European  trade  connections  with  England  and  as  they  illustrate  Forbes' 
memory  of  the  continental  Renaissance  and  Reformation»  David  Sinclair  of  the 
Victoria  College  Library  has  selected  interesting  l6th  century  items  in  the  coll- 
ection for  full  bibliographical  description»  Future  issues  will  concentrate  on 
17th  century  materials  and  themes  in  Forbes'  library» 

Mailed  with  this  issue  is  a  valuable  illustrated  pamphlet  on  the  Forbes 
Collection,  \ccitten  by  Professor  P»L,Hey\TOrth  of  the  Graduate  Department  of  English 
and  published  by  the  University  of  Toronto  Library»  Prof»  Heyworth  has  long  been 
interested  in  the  collection  and  we  are  grateful  to  him  for  permitting  us  to  circulate 
his  essay.  This  pamphlet,  incidentally,  initiates  a  series  of  Library  publications 
on  its  holdings» 


Michael  Finlayson 

Samuel  Palmer,  in  his  edition  of  Calamy's  Nonconformists'  Memorials,  praised 
the  great  generosity  of  one  of  the  longest  surviving  clerical  veterans  of  the  Inter- 
regnum and  \rco\.Q,    as  his  final  accolade,  that 

at  his  death  he  left  many  gifts  to  charitable  uses,  especially  his 
study  of  books,  which  was  considerable» 

Now,  256  years  after  his  death,  this  "considerable"  library  of  James  Forbes  has  come 
to  rest  in  the  Rare  Book  Room  of  the  University  of  Toronto» 

The  acquisition  of  this  collection  is  significant  for  two  main  reasons»  First 
it  brings  to  Toronto  some  1800  or  so  sixteenth  and  seventeenth  century  English  and 
'îuropean  books»  most  of  which  were  not  previously  here,  or  at  least  not  other  than 
)n  the  Ann  Arbor  STC  and  Wing  microfilms»  More  importantly,  perhapSp  the  collection 
.s,  or  may  be,  a  concrete  expression  of  the  intellectual  and  theological  heritage  of 
1  seventeenth  century  Independent»  For  James  Forbes  is  inadequately  described 
lerely  as  a  "puritan"  or  as  a  "nonconformist":  more  accurately  he  was  one  of  that 
?elatively  small  band  of  clergymen  who  identified  with  the  cause  of  "Independence" 
luring  the  Interregnum»  He  was  one  of  the  less  than  200  ministers  ejected  during  the 
:?reat  purge  of  1660-62  (from  a  preachership  at  Gloucester  cathedral)  who  may  un- 
equivocally be  labelled  an  Independent»  Bom  in  1629»  Forbes  was,  of  course  too 
'oung  to  have  participated  in  the  proceedings  of  the  Westminster  Assembly  but  he  did

demonstrate^  to  an  iinusual  degrees,  his  identification  with  the  clerical  Independ- 
ents such  as  Thomas  Goodwin^  Philip  Nje,,  and  John  Owen  hy  participating  in  the 
Savoy  Conference  of  1658 o  Reminiscing  some  ^0  years  later,  he  clearly  romanticised 
the  Conference,  designed  hy  the  Independent  ministers, and  probably  in  opposition 
to  the  \«.shes  of  the  Lord  Protector^to  make  explicit  Independent  orthodoxy» 

It  was  a  kind  of  heaven  on  earth  I  think  to  all  who  were  present o 
Such  rare  elaborate  speeches  my  ears  never  heard  before,  nor  since a 
We  had  some  days  of  prayer  and  fasting  kept  from  morning  til 
night o 
(quoted  in  A» Go Mat thews,  Intro»  to  The  Savoy  Declaration  of  Faith  and  Order, 
London,  1959) 

Though  described  by  Palmer  as  a  "strict  Calvinist"  albeit  "of  a  catholic 
temper"  it  is  important  to  recognise  that  Forbes  was  reluctant  to  accept  a  ben- 
efice in  165^  but  preferred  to  preach  at  large  and  to  minister  to  his  gathered 
congregation o  As  he  1^^?ote  when  he  accepted  the  preachership  at  Gloucester, 

I  could  not  accept  the  call  to  be  a  Parochial  Minister,  for  if 
I  received  the  Parish  Maintenance  from  all,  All  would  expect  me 
to  baptise  their  Children,  and  administerr  the  Lord's  Supper  to 
all,  according  to  long  Custom» 

The  preachership  he  preferred  as  f 

more  suiting  my  Principles;  fox  I  was  to  hav^e  no  Parochial  Charge, 
and  my  Maintenance  was  to  come  from  the  State» 
(quoted  in  G»F.lTuttall,  Visible  Saints.  Oxford.  19579  PP-  139-lA-O) 

The  principles  that  Forbes  was  here  referring  to  were  no  mere  momentary  whim, 
but  the  expression  of  a  fimdamental  ecclesiology,  fir^t  outlined  by  Ames,  Parker 
and  Jacob  in  the  Netherlands,  that  became  the  orthodoxy  in  Massachusetts  and, 
later,  amongst  the  Dissenting  Brethren»  What  is  involved  is  a  conception  of  the 
church  that  differs  radically  from  that  adhered  to  by  Anglicans  and  Presbyterians 
alike  and  that  alienates  the  Independents  from  their  erstwhile  brethren,  the 
Presbyterians,  just  as  fundamentally  as  had  the  "puritans"  previously  been  alien- 
ated from  the  "Anglicans"» 

Not  that  Forbes  can  even  be  fitted  into  a  pigeon-hole  as  narrowly  described 
as  this,  for  he  was  not,  like  so  many  Independents,  an  Englishman,  educated  at 
Emmanuel,  but  a  Scot8man«  who  graduated  MoA»  from  the  University  of  Aberdeen  and 
came  to  England  in  the  early  l650's»  Absence  of  more  detailed  information 
causes  us  simply  to  wonder  about  the  circumstances  that  led  to  a  Scottish  and 
presumably  presbyterian-oriented  minister  committing  himself  so  fully  to  the 
Independent  cause»  For  despite  several  period  of  imprisonment  Forbes  remained  at 
Gloucester  for  52  years  after  his  ejection,  ministering  to  his  congregation 
during  which  time  he  managed  to  tin:ite  three  books,  all  of  them  published  after 
1688»  His  works  comprise  a  collection  of  Sermons  on  the  Psalms,  a  book  of 
Pastoral  Instruction,  and  finally  Nehushtan,  a  tract  directed  against  the 
Quaker,  John  Elliott» 

This  then  is  the  man  whose  library  has  found  its  way  to  the  University  of 
Toronto  Library»  Hopefully,  we  may  see  in  the  collection  some  of  the  intellectual 
forces  that  helped  shape  a  seventeenth  century  Independent  mind  although,  as  we 
have  seen,  Forbes  is  scarcely  a  veiy  typical  figure»  This  is  altmys,  of  course, 
a  rather  risky  undertaking,  the  more  so  in  this  case  as  we  have  no  way  of  telling 
which  of  the  books  he  possessed  during  what  must  have  been  the  crucial  years  of 
his  life,  that  is  between  16^5  and  16 5^+»  Nor  do  we  know  the  extent  to  which  the 

collection  is  complete;  as  we  shall  see,  there  is  a  number  of  surprising  ommissions 
which  suggest  that  at  some  stage  during  the  past  256  years  the  original  library 
has  been  dispersed.  In  the  end  then,  we  may  have  to  lower  our  sights  and  see  the 
collection  as  ah  expression  of  one  seventeenth  century  Independent's  intellectual 
and  theological  tastes^  rather  than  of  his  formation» 

Certainly  when  we  come  to  analyse  those  books  in  his  library  published  prior 
to  1610  and  -mritten  by  Englishmen  it  becomes  difficult  to  detect  much  consistency» 
This  part  of  the  total  collection,  numbering  perhaps  20  or  so  works,  is  impress- 
ively eclectic  and  could  be  almost  a  random  sample  from  the  STCo   It  is,  for 
instance,  satisfying  to  see  in  the  collection  an  early  work  of  that  pre-historic 
Independent  par  excellence,  Robert  Parker,  Minister  at  Wilton,  A  Srholasticall 
Discourse  Against  Symbolizing  with  Antichrist  in  Ceremonies;  especially  in  the 
Signe  of  the  Crosse,  I6O7  (AcCo  2A-758)o'  It  would  conform  to  our  understanding  of 
seventeenth  century  English  religious  history  to  be  able  to  establish  a  direct 
connection  between  a  Civil  War  Independent  and  one  of  the  progenitors  of  the 
Independent  ecclesiologyo  Yet  in  the  same  collection  we  find  such  a  pillar  of 
episcopal  and  monarchicial  orthodoxy  as  Basilikon  Doron,  or  His  Ma.iesty's  Instruc- 
tions to  His  Dearest  Son,  Henry  the  Prince,  3  Books,  London,  1603  (-^cco  259^^)» 

How  are  we  to  interpret  the  fact  that  a  man  educated  for  the  ministry  in 
Scotland  possessed  only  one  work  by  John  Knox  -  (AcCo  19580)  John  Knox,  An  AnstJer 
to  a  Great  Number  of  blasphemous  cavillations  -tirritten  by  an  Anabaptist,  and  ad- 
versary to  God's  eternal  Predestination  and  Confuted-,  I56O?   Admittedly,  there 
are  three  of  Cartin?ight  '  s  works,  (AcCo  22287),  ToCartOTightj.  A  Reply  to  an  Answer 
made  of  Dr»  Whitgift  against  the  Admonition  to  the  Parliament,  1575  (for  the 
others  bound  with  this,  see  Sinclair,  below,  items  8-10)»  But  to  counterbalance 
these  we  have  (Acc»  245^7)9  Richard  Bancroft,  Dangerous  Positions  and  Proceedings, 
published  and  practised  within  this  Island  of  Britain,  under  pretence  of  Reform- 
ation, and  for  the  Presbyterial  Discipline,  London,  1593o  Johannis  Rainolds,  Sex 
theses  de  sacra  Scriptura  et  ecclesia,  London,  1602^  a  work  dedicated  to  that  great 
sixteenth  centuiy  Calvinist  and,  simultaneously,  puritan-baiter,  Archbishop  Whitgift» 
Along  with  these  were  two  other  general  defences  of  the  Elizabethan  church  settlement, 
(AcCo  20588),  Thomas  Bilson,  Warden  of  Winchester,  The  True  Difference  between 
Christian  Sub.jection  and  Unchristian  Rebellion,  Oxford,  1585  (see  Sinclair  below, 

item  11),  (AcCo  20730), ,  The  Survey  of  Christ-s  Sufferings  for  Man's  Redemption 

and  of  His  Descent  to  Hades  of  Hell  for  our  Deliverance,  London,  1604» 

If  the  rationality  of  what  remains  in  the  collection  is  obscure  how  much  more 
puzzling  is  what  is  omitted,  Ho\>?  are  we  to  explain  the  fact  that  there  is  so  little 
of  the  work  of  John  Calvin,  only  one  work  in  English  and  that  an  abridgement, 
without  supposing  that  we  have  only  part  of  the  original  library?   (Acc»  2^5^8)  (An 
Abridgement  of  the  Institution  of  Christian  Religion  ^>rritten  by  Mro  John  Calvin , 
by  William  Laime,  Edinburgh,  1585)  » 

There  does,  however,  emerge  at  least  the  possibility  of  there  being  some 
significant  pattern  inherent  within  the  collection,  as  distinct  from  its  being 
imposed  upon  it  by  the  over- zealous  historian,  when  we  note  several  volumes  of 
sermons  that  may  fairly  be  regarded  as  puritan  in  toneo  There  is,  for  example, 
(AcCo1956^),  The  Plaine  Man's  Spiritual  Plough,  Containing  the  Godly  and  Spiritual 
Husbandrie,  by  I» Co,  Preacher  of  the  Word,  London,  l607j>  a  work,  incidentally,  that 
is  not  immediately  apparent  in  the  STC»  Then  there  is  (Acc  21250),  A  Collection 
of  Sermons  by  Edward  Dering,  published  between  I569  and  1597,  and  bound  in  a  single 
volume»   A  third  work  in  this  category  is  (Acc»  1937^)»  Certain  Godly  and  Learned 
Sermons  preached  by  that  worthy  servant  of  Christ,  Mr»  Edward  Philips,  in  S» Saviour 
in  Southwarko

From  the  volumes  that  remain  in  the  Fortes  Collection  that  were  \irritten 
"by  Englishmen  prior  to  1610,  then,  we  can  discern  little  pattern,  with  the  one 
proviso  that  there  appears  to  he  a  slightly  disproportionate  amoiint  of  piiritan 
sermon  literature»  It  remains  to  he  seen  whether  any  more  rational  and  satis- 
fying connection  can  he  established  between  the  man  and  that  part  of  his 
library  published  closer  to  his  actual  lifetime. 



Natalie  Zemon  Davis 

After  153^,  says  HoSoBennett  of  the  English  book  trade,  "foreign  competition 
[was]  wellnigh  impossible»  The  English  printer  had  things  all  his  oivn  \ra.y»" 
How  can  this  be  true  when  the  great  publisher  Christophe  Plantin  was  sending 
European  editions  to  fifteen  booksellers  in  London  and  to  several  more  in  Scot- 
land in  the  1560's  and  1570 's?  How  can  this  be  true  when  scholarly  English  lib- 
raries of  the  late  l6th  and  early  17th  centuries  include  so  many  continental 
editions?  About  70^  of  the  750  books  in  the  theological  collection  of  Anthony 
Higgin  (d.  I62h),    graduate  of  St»  John's  College,  Cambridge  and  Dean  of  Ripon, 
had  been  printed  accross  the  Channel  -  to  give  only  one  example.* 

This  movement  of  books  from  Europe  to  England  in  the  l6th  and  17th  centuries 
has  never  been  fully  studied  and  is  difficult  to  analyse,  depending  as  it  does  on 
so  many  independent  variables  of  market,  legal  prohibition,  printing  and  trans- 
port costs,  religion,  travel  and  literary  taste.  A  look  at  the  European  editions 
^  printed  before  1610  in  the  Forbes  Collection  suggests  both  the  possibilities  and 
problems  of  a  broad  study;  it  also  helps  us  to  see  what  a  non-Conformist  minister

Of  the  1500  books  in  Forbes'  library,  only  about  125  were  printed  before  I6II, 
86  of  them  on  the  continent»  Once  we  move  into  the  17th  century,  the  ratio 
changes;  the  great  bulk  of  Forbes'  books  were  printed  in  England»  Here  are  some

Now  it  could  be  that  the  Reverend  Forbes  o\med  many  additional  works  by  l6th

[or  in  editions  printed  in  Englando   I  have  located,  however,  only  37  such  books

Thus,  the  character  of  Forbes'  collection  of  l6th  century  continental  editions 
and  authors  begins  to  emerge:  Latin  religious  works,  most  of  them  originating 
in  the  last  half  of  the  16 th  century  and  published  in  the  Protestant  centres  of 
Switzerland  and  Germany,   This  selection  is  interesting,  because  it  differs  in 
important  ways  from  that  which  would  have  been  made  by  Protestant  divines  living 
in  the  later  I6th  or  early  17th  centuries.   In  their  libraries  the  greatest  names 
of  continental  religious  reform  were  represented  by  many  volumes,  but  they  have 
only  i2?regular  representation  among  Forbes'  books.   There  is  one  and  only  one 
work  by  Luther  -  a  commentary  on  Paul's  Epistle  to  the  Galatians  (Hagenauj  1535); 
one  Biblical  commentary  by  Brenz;  one  from  Oecolampadius;  and  nothing  from  Melancthon, 
Bullinger  or  Zwinglio  Bucer's  De  regno  Christi  is  there  (Basel,  1557)  as  are 
Beza's  Tractationes  Theologicae  (2nd  ed», Geneva,  1576)0  But  Calvin  is  the  only 
major  reformer  for  whom  Forbes  had  more  than  one  edition  -  a  catechism  and  three 
other  works»   Even  then,  he  onvned  more  volumes  by  the  Zurich  pastors  Ludwig  Lavater 
and  Rudolf  Walther  (Gwaltherus,  dol586)  than  by  Calvin, 

Secondly,  libraries  biiilt  up  by  Protestant  clerics  of  the  late  l6th  and  early 
17th  centuries  were  richly  supplied  with  the  texts  that  humanist  scholarship  had 
made  available  to  religious  reform:  nimierous  texts  and  fresh  translations  of 
Scripture  and  critical  editions  of  the  early  fathers,  ForbeSo  in  contrast,  had 
only  Konrad  Pellican's  edition  of  the  whole  Bible  (Zurich,  1532);  that  of  François 
du  Jon  and  Immanuel  Tremellius  (Hanover^  1603;  interleaved  for  commentary,  though 
none  has  been  \n?itten);  and  "pre- humanist"  editions  in  Gothic,  with  commentary 
by  the  medieval  Nicolas  de  Lyra  (Basel,  1507;  Strasbourg,  1^1-92) ,  No  Erasmus,  no 
Lefevre  d'Etaples,  none  of  the  great  Estienne  editions.  Similarly,  his  con- 
tinental editions  of  the  fathers  were  limited  to  Jerome's  Epistles,  in  an  edition 
by  the  Jesuit  Canisius  (Paris,  1602)  rather  than  that  of  Erasmus;  Salvian's 
De  Gubematione.  Dei  (Geneva^  I6OO);  and  two  Biblical  commentaries  by  Theophylactus, 

The  truth  is,  of  course,  that  the  theological  problems  that  exercised  Forbes 
were  those  of  his  01m  time  (see  Michael  Finlayson's  article  elsewhere  in  this 
bulletin  and  in  later  issues).  Nor  did  Forbes  need  to  concern  himself  about 
establishing  a  correct  biblical  text.   The  16th  centuiy  continental  works  in  the 
collection  point  to  one  activity  -  the  study  of  the  Bible  and  Biblical  commentaries, 
presumably  for  the  piirpose  of  his  o^m  sermons. 



-  11  - 

The  small  number  of  secular  works  by  l6th  century  continental  authors  in 
Forbes'  library  reveal  little  of  the  literary  or  scientific  movements  of  the 
period»  There  is  only  one  history  book  that  could  have  told  Forbes  what  happened 
in  Europe  in  those  years:  a  part  of  Jacques  Auguste  De  Thou' s  Latin  History  of  his 
(hm  Time  (Paris,  I6O8;  this  volume  included  the  stoiy  of  the  Saint  Bartholomew's 
Day  Massacre)»  Erasmus  is  the  only  major  humanist  to  be  included:  the  Ada^ia 
(Antwerp,  1533)  and  the  Colloquia  (Leydeni  Elzevir,  1643)»  There  are  a  few  Ramist 
\/orks,  such  as  Johann  Heinrich  Asltedt's  Sy sterna  Mnemonicum  Duplex  (Frankfort, 
1610),  a  work  that  seems  to  have  taught  little  to  the  reader,  who  had  to  i>rrite  a 
list  of  things  -  to-remember  on  the  fly-leaf  -  "pay  the  Taylor»  <,  „  Hire  the  Coach, 
Visit  my  Cousin» „o" 

Unable  to  read  any  of  the  continental  veinaculars ,  Forbes  was  cut  off  from 
Ehiropean  poetry,  stories,  and  theatre»   Du  Bartas  is  his  only  poet,  in  an  English 
translation  of  the  Divine  weekes  and  workes  (London,  I6O8)»  His  most  interesting 
scientific  work  is  Theatrum  Humanae  Yitae  (Basel,  1586)  by  Theodore  Zwinger, 
the  reforming  dean  of  the  Medical  Faculty  at  Basel»  Agrippa  Of  Nettesheim's 
Vanity  of  the  Sciences  also  appears  among  Forbes'  books  in  an  English  translation 
(London,  1676);   according  to  Charles  Nauert,  this  extraordinary  physician  and 
occultist  was  frequently  mentioned  in  17th  century  England»  On  the  other  hand, 
it  is  a  surprise  to  find  in  a  nonconformist's  library  the  Courtier  of  Castiglione, 
here  in  a  Latin  translation  made  by  Bartholomew  Clerke  of  Cambridge  in  1571 
(Forbes'  edition  is  London,  1612)»  Perhaps  it  was  used  by  his  pupils» 

The  most  coherent  group  of  books  among  Forbes'  secular  editions  printed  on 
the  continent  are  the  classical  texts»  Presumably  he  used  these  too  for  his  teach- 
ing» Some  of  them  are  much  marked,  such  as  Cicero's  Oration es  (Lyonss  Jean  Frellon, 
I56O;  edition  not  in  Baudrier)  and  a  Greek  Isocrates  (Basel:  Thomas  Guerin,  I565)» 

Where  Forbes  purchased  these  books  or  how  much  he  paid  for  them  he  doesn't 
say»  Only  in  his  earliest  edition  -  the  Latin  New  Testament,  with  commentary 
by  Nicolas  dé  Lyra  (Strasbourgj.  lit-92)  -  does  he  \/rite  that  it  was  a  "gift  of 
T„Bro\m»"  It  is  very  probable,  however,  that  most  if  not  all,  of  the  sixteenth 
century  editions  had  reached  England  long  before  Forbes  acquired  them»  Twenty 
seven  of  the  editions  published  before  1611  had  autographs  tirritten  in  them  before 
Forbes  -to-ote  his  o\m  name  and  device»  Only  two  of  these  owners  are  definitely 
Europeans:  a  Dom  Vettor  of  the  Society  of  Jesus,  who  wrote  his  name  in  Bellarmine's 
De  controversis  Christianae  fidel  (Paris,  1602)  and  Rodolphe  Walther,  who  o\med 
two  of  his  o;«i  books  of  homilies  and  probably  a  copy  of  Livy»  All  or  almost  all 
the  other  o^vners  are  English  or  Scottish  (their  names  are  listed  at  the  end  of  this 
note^  in  case  any  of  them  are  of  interest  to  readers)»  Others  of  the  books  have 
no  autographs  besides  Forbes'  o;m,  but  do  have  English  marginalia  and  English 
phrases  \in?itten  on  the  fly-leafs.   In  only  two  cases  have  16th  century  o^mers  noted 
when  they  acquired  the  books?  William  Le\7is»  who  bought  the  Adagia  of  Erasmus 
in  1533,  the  same  year  it  was  published  in  Antwerp;  and  "Whittiker",  who  obtained 
De  Gloria  by  the  Portuguese  bishop  Jeronimo  Osorio  in  1589?  some  thirteen  years 
after  it  was  published  in  Cologne»  It  seems  likelys  however,  from  the  character 
of  the  hand;n?iting  that  a  number  of  the  other  editions  came  into  English  possession 
during  the  16th  century» 

Why  any  particular  reader  obtained  any  particular  book  in  the  Forbes  Collection 
is,  of  course,  not  at  all  evident,  except  for  the  school  texts»  Some  of  the  con- 
tinental editions  had,  however,  original  connections  with  England  which  made  more 
likely  their  arrival  on  her  shores.  Beza's  Tractationes  Theologicae  were  dedicated 
from  Geneva,  1570 , to  Walter  Mildmay,  Queen  Elizabeth's  Chancellor  of  the  Exchequer; 
Rudolf  Walther  dedicated  his  Homiliae  on  John's  Epistle  to  Edward  VI  not  long  before 
the  young  king's  death  and  his  Homilies  on  Paul's  Epistle  to  the  Corinthians  to 



-  12  - 

Edmund  Gryndal,  Archbishop  of  York  and  the  Bishops  of  London,  Winchester,  Ely, 
ïïor\irich  and  Burhanio   The  Protestant  Erasmus  Sarcerius  dedicated  the  second 
edition  of  his  Latin  Method  of  Teaching  Holy  Scripture  (Marburg,  15^^)  to  Henry 
VIII,  because,  he  explained,  he  had  learned  that  the  first  edition  had  been 
translated  into  English  at  Henry's  request»* 

Five  of  the  authors  whose  works  were  published  in  continental  cities  were 
themselves  English:  John  Knox'  Answer  to  a  great  Number  of  blasphemous  cavillations 
written  by  an  Anabaptist  was  printed  in  I56O  in  Geneva  during  his  exile  in  Calvin's 
city;  Thomas  Harding's  Confutation  of  Jewel's  Apology  of  the  Church  of  England  \ra,s 
published  in  Antwerp  in  1565>  for  the  Catholic  Harding  had  been  living  in  Louvain 
since  Elizabeth's  accession  (see  Sinclair,  below,  item  7)>  Thomas  Brightman's 
Apocalypsis  apocalypseos,  dedicated  to  the  holy  reformed  churches  of  Britain, 
Germany  and  Prance,  may  have  been  published  on  the  continent  (Frankfort,  1609 ) 
because  it  could  not  find  an  English  printer:   claiming  to  be  under  direct  divine 
inspiration,  Brightman  described  the  Church  of  England  as  the  Laodiciean  Church 
and  the  churches  of  Scotland  and  Geneva  as  those  loved  by  the  Angel  of  God. 

Finally,  two  of  the  English  authors  had  continental  publishers  primarily  for 
business  reasons  -  John  Rainolds,  the  President  of  Corpus  Christi  College,  Oxford, 
and  Robert  Rollock,  minister  of  Edinburgh,  Rollock's  Latin  commentary  on  the 
Gospel  of  John  had  first  editions  in  Edinburgh  and  Geneva  the  same  year  (l599) 
and  subsequent  Geneva  editions,  including  the  I6O8  edition  in  the  Forbes  CollectioCo 
Rainolds'  De  Romanae  Ecclesiae  Idolatria  appeared  in  1596  in  Oxford  and  then  in 
1598  in  Geneva.  The  publisher  of  the  Geneva  editions  in  the  Forbes  Collection 
was  Jacques  Stoer,  a  German  who  printed  in  Geneva  for  almost  fifty  years»   There 
may  be  more  trade  connections  between  Genevan  publishing  houses  and  Britain  than 
has  been  previously  realized» 

The  primary  importance  of  the  Forbes  Collection  does  not  lie  in  its  l6th 
century  continental  editions  and  authors,  yet  the  data  reviewed  here  suggests  it 
may  yield  some  fresh  insights  into  intellectual  and  economic  connections  between 
England  and  the  continent» 


All  legible  signatures  in  editions  published  before  I6II  have  been  included 
other  than  Forbes', plus  signatures  from  two  interesting  editions  in  1612»  Prices 
have  been  included  even  when  undated,  in  case  they  may  be  of  use  to  some  readers.

David  Sinclair 

Forbes'  library  is  a  fascinating  collection,  for,  in  a  way,  we  can  still  visit 
his  study  as  he  left  it,  though  in  the  intervening  centuries  its  contents  have  been 
visited  by  fire  and  flood»  My  interest  here  has  been  to  cull  the  sixteenth-century 
material  and  to  present  some  of  the  interesting  items;  the  choice  was  personal,  \ 
an  eye  for  those  items  which  might  complement  existing  collections  on  campus.   The 
selection  following  does  not  represent  any  one  trend  in  the  collectiono   Though  a 
student  of  seventeenth- century  bibliography  could  well  make  a  study  of  collecting 
habits  from  the  Forbes  stock,  the  sixteenth-century  material  is  simply  not  extensive 
enough  for  meaningful  trends  to  be  established»   The  core  of  the  material  is  Biblical 
commentarieso  A  seventeenth-century  trend  in  Forbes'  library,  the  emphasis  on 
church  and  state,  is  reflected  in  the  Elizabethan  controversial  literatiire,  some  of 
which  appears  below. 


Forbes  inscribed  his  volumes  with  Fugit  hora,  tempora,  laborao» „,  but  not, 
alas  for  the  curious  librarian,  ;  the  prices  paid,  or  the  provenance  and  date 
of  acquisition»  A  previous  o\mer  of  one  of  the  titles  I  treat  has  done  so  (unless 
I  read  his  shelf-mark  for  eighteenpence).  But  we  can  assume  that  Forbes  was  not  a 
bibliographer  or  book-hunter:  there  is  no  reason  to  imagine  that  his  sixteenth- 
century  books  were  actively  sought  with  the  purpose  of  forming  an  integrated  sub- 
ject collection,  or  for  their  fine  printing  or  bindings»  Forbes  was  after  all  a 
preacher^  and  the  printed  word,  especially  Biblical  commentaries,  would  be  the  tools 
of  his  trade»   Both  the  time  and  his  tasks  were  fleeting,  as  he  so  carefully  noted, 
and  he  had  no  call  to  spend  loving  care  upon  the  niceties  of  bibliography  as  the 
custodians  and  users  of  his  library  now  must  do» 

To  this  end,  a  selection  from  among  Forbes'  books.  The  annotated  bibliography 
follo^iàng  has  been  done  with  the  hope  that  it  may  be  of  reference  value»  Thus  the 
transcription  of  titles  and  imprints  is  rather  more  full  than  is  seen  In  usual 
checklists.  Language  and  orthography  has  been  preserved,  but  typography  has  in 
most  instances  been  silently  corrected»  No  collation  was  felt  necessary»  Authors' 
names,  where  this  has  been  possible,  have  been  made  to  accord  with  the  standard 
entries  in  the  Library  of  Congress  catalogues»

Nicolas  de  Lyra  was  a  French  theologian  whose  dates  are  estimated  in  one 
source  to  te  cBo  1270-134-0.  Many  editions  of  his  commentaries  on  the  Bible  were 
done  in  the  incunabula  period;  other  editions  have  the  work  of  Paulus  Burgensis 
and  Mattias  Doringk  as  well. 

Johann  Gruninger  the  printer  was  sometime  at  Basle,  and  at  Strasbourg 
from  lA^2o  He  was   a  correspondent  of  Amerbach,  \  whom  he  had  worked.  He 
produced  editions  of  the  classics,  sermons  in  Latin  and  German,  medical  texts, 
dictionaries,  even  novels:   over  250  titles,  by  one  coiint.   He  printed  for 
others  as  well,  including  Koberger»   Kristeller  finds  him  the  principal  rep- 
resentative of  the  Alsatian  school  of  illustration,  and  book  illustration  seems 
to  have  been  his  chief  concern  in  printing  from  the  time  of  his  establishment 
in  Strasbourg  until  his  death  ça»  1531..

This  was  the  fourth  condensed  Adagia;  the  version  contains  about  3^^67 
adages  with  commentary.   It  was  undertaken  as  a  student  edition.  The  adapter j, 
Theodoricus  Cortehoevius,  takes  his  name  from  Kortenhoef,  Holland,  his  birth- 
place. Around  1530  it  is  likely  that  he  was  living  at  Antwerp;  his  letter  to 
Erasmus  at  the  beginning  of  this  volume  is  dated  there.  Only  two  of  his  works 
are  kno\«i:   this  Adagia,  and  Bellum  Sophiae  ac  Philantiae^  Veritatis  ac  Falsi- 
tatis  (Antwerp,  G.Dumaeus,  1530)7 

The  printer,  Martinus  de  Keyser  ( Caesaris)  printed  some  sixty  titles  in 
Antwerp  between  1525  and  1536-7°  His  widow  printed  twenty  titles  between  1536 
and  1539»   Of  Erasmus'  texts,  de  Keyser  printed  the  following: 

Enchiridion  du  chevalier  chrestien  (1529) 

Enchiridion  militis  christiani  (1531) 

Declarationes  ad  censuras  Lutetiae  yulgatas  (1532) 

De  civilitate  morum  puerilium  (1532) 

De  praeparatione  ad  mortem  (1534) 
His  widow  printed  Erasmus'  Catalogi  duo  operum  ab  ipso  conscripti  et  digesti  in 
1537o  The  publisher  Govaert  van  der  Hagen  (Dumaeus)  as  a  printer  had  produced 
a  Dutch  Eusebius  in  1534. 

The  binding  is  blind-stamped  calf,  worn,  the  central  feature  of  which  is 
the  laureated  head  of  a  bearded  man.   The  decoration  is  similar  to  that  on  the 
\\rork  of  another  by  the  name  of  Erasmus  in  Forbes'  collection,  Erasmus  Sarcerius

(see  Ace  21959)»  Both  bindings  have  heen  rebacked,  but  the  covers  appear  to 
be  contemporary  with  the  publications»   Profile  heads  as  panel  motifs  appeared 
in  England  ça,  1528-30<.   They  follow  by  one  hundred  years  a  turning  in  Floren- 
tine portraiture  to  the  finest  examples  on  classical  Roman  coins  and  medals» 
The  similarity  of  the  Desiderius  Erasmus  binding  to  that  of  the  Erasmus 
Sarcerius  makes  one  wonder  if  the  same  binder  worked  at  them  both»  This 
speculation  aside,  we  can  tell  earlier  o\merSo  The  Adagia  was  signed  twice

professor  of  Greek  and  Hebrew,  and  eventually  librarian»  He  was  closely  assoc- 
iated with  Zwingli,  and  had  had  dealings  with  Luther,  as  well  as  being  a  friend 
of  Erasmus.  Pellikan  worked  for  Froben,  contributing  indexes  to  the  works  of 
Erasmus,  Oecolampadius  and  Beatus  Rhenanus»   He  also  worked  for  Adam  Petri 
whom  he  moved  to  print  many  of  Luther's  works»  His  commentaries  came  out  of 
Froben' s  shop  in  separate  lots,  over  the  period  between  1532  and  1582»  The 
edition  to  which  the  present  copy  apparently  belongs  is  the  1532-^1-6  edition 
in  eight  volumes» 

Christoph  Froschauer  (ca»  1^+90-156^)  worked  in  Zurich  for  Hans  Rtiegger 
and  married  his  widow»  He  was  the  printer  of  Zwingli  and  Bullinger,  and  became 
the  "offiziSzer  Drucker  des  Rates"»  Latin,  German  and  English  texts  of  the

Butzer  (or  Bucer)  was  bom  in  Schlettstadt  (Selestat)  Alsace»  A  principal 
reformer  at  Strasbourg,  he  attempted  to  mediate  the  quarrel  between  Zwingli 
and  Luther»  He  played  a  significant  role  in  the  various  conferences  prior  to 
the  Schmalkaldic  War  between  Catholics  and  Protestants»   In  15^8  he  fled  to 
England,  where  he  was  made  Regius  Professor  Divinity  at  Cambridge»   There  he 
died  three  years  later» 

The  De  regno  Christi  is  Butzer' s  manual  for  the  establishment  of  a  lasting 
Reformation  in  England»  Drafted  sixteen  months  after  he  arrived  in  Englandj,  it 
is  in  two  parts»   The  first  consists  of  an  analysis  of  the  idea  of  the  kingdom 
of  Christ  and  of  the  chief  functions  of  the  Church»  The  second,  more  practical, 
part  has  Butzer' s  suggestions  \   regard  to  the  establishment  of  this  kingdom 
in  England,  and  of  the  legislation  which  must  go  along  with  it»  After  cir- 
culating in  manscript  since  Butzer' s  death,  and  being  the  subject  of  considerable 
negotiation  with  printers,  the  work  was  sent  by  Butzer' s  secretary  Conrad

Rimning  titles  A  supplication  unto  the  High  Court  of  Parliament, 
Page  83  signed:   lohn  Penri 
STC  19613 o 

Penry  was  a  Welsh  Puritan  and  thoroughgoing  Calvinist,   He,  John  Udall 
(15607-1592),  Job  Throckmorton  (l5^5-l60l)  and  the  printer  Robert  Waldegrave 
carried  out  the  attack  upon  the  bishops  linder  the  pseudonym  Martin  Marprelateo 
Penry  is  credited  with  being  the  chief  author  of  the  tracts  (although  the  case  is 
by  no  means  clear-cut)  which  had  to  be  secretly  printed  and  published,  being 
in  defiance  of  the  law»  Penry  and  Waldegrave  had  fled  to  Scotland  by  1590 
for  safety.   Though  the  printer  survived  to  die  of  natural  causes,  Penry  was 
arrested  on  his  return  to  London  (l592),  tried,  dra-jm  on  a  hurdle  and  hanged  on 
the  charge  of  inciting  rebelliono  His  Reformation  no  enemie,  published  in 
Scotland,  1590,  was  used  as  part  of  the  evidence  against  him» 

A  viewe  which  is  sometimes  referred  to  as  Penry' s  Supplication,,  was  printed 
in  Penry' s  o\m.   type  and  published  in  March,  1589»   The  font  matched  two  unsign- 
ed Marprelate  tracts,  "Martin  Jimior"  i.e,.  Theses  Martinianae  and  "Martin 
Senior,  i.e»,  The  .just  censure  and  reproofe  of  Martin  Junior»  «  »  by  000  Martin 
Senior,  both  printed  in  that  year.   So  secret  was  the  production  of  A  viewe 
that  the  printing  was  done  in  Coventry,  the  binding  in  Northampton,  and  thence 
the  tracts  were  carried  to  London»  The  clandestine  press  had  been  removed 
from  Fawsley  in  January,  1589  with  a  stopover  for  safety's  sake  at  Norton» 
It  left  Coventry  before  May  of  that  year  for  Wolston  Priory,  and  then  was  taken 
to  Manchester.  Penry' s  assistant,  the  binder  Henry  Sharpe,  warned  him  that 
the  similarity  of  the  type  of  his  own  signed  works  and  the  Marprelate  tracts 
"would  descry  him  to  be  Martin".   In  his  deposition  before  the  authorities 
investigating  the  secret  press,  Sharpe  stated  "The  Press  wherein  they  were  all 
printed  was  Penrys,  he  was  the  Dealer  with  men  to  print  them,  he  had  Books 
with  the  first,  he  could  talk  of  them  before  they  were  printed,  and  of  the 
tymes  of  their  coming  forth  ooo."* 

Waldegrave,  the  printer  (l55^?-l60'+)i,  had  had  his  press  destroyed  for 
issuing  John  Udall' s  anti-Episcopal  treatise  A  demonstration  of  the  truteth  of 
that  discipline...,  1588.   He  moved  with  the  press  as  the  authorities  approached! 
East  Molesy,  Fawsley,  Coventry,  finally  Edinburgh.   There  between  1590-93  he 
printed  controversial  tracts,  including  Penry' s;  he  became  King's  Printer  in 
Scotland  in  1591.  Waldegrave  returned  to  London  a  year  before  his  death.

STC  19991 o 

Three  parts,  with  separate  title  pages.   Illustrated» 

The  first  edition»   Sir  Hugh  Plat  (Platt,  or  Platte)  was  a  student  of 
literature,  then  science,  especially  agriculture  —  in  which  he  made  investiga- 
tions "of  genuine  value"  (DNB)»   Editions  of  his  many  interesting  works  kept 
on  being  printed  well  into  the  last  quarter  of  the  seventeenth  century»   He  was 
a  tireless  experimenter  and  correspondent  on  the  topics  (from  manuring  to 
dyeing  of  the  hair)  which  attracted  him.  The  other  parts  of  The  .Jewell  house 
having  separate  title  pages  illustrate  his  range:   "Diverse  new  sorts  of  soyle 
not  yet  brought  into  any  publique  use,  for  manuring  both  of  pasture  and  arable 
ground, "  and  "Divers  chimicall  conclusions  concerning  the  art  of  distillationo 
With  many  rare  practises  and  uses  therof,  according  to  the  authors  o\m  exper- 
ience»" That  his  experience  need  not  be  questioned  seems  to  be  suggested  by 
the  note  in  the  Concise  DKB:  "»»«  son  of  a  London  brewer;  amply  provided  for 
by  his  father. o»o"  It  means  to  suggest  that  Plat  could  easily  pursue,  being 
well-off,  his  chemical  and  agricultural  experiments»  Some  of  his  other  titles 
include:   "The  accomplisht  ladys  delight  in  preserving,  physick  and  cookery" 
(Published  anonymously,  n„d»),  "Delights  for  ladieSj  to  adome  their  persons, 
tables,  closets  and  distillatories"  (l602,  ten  editions  before  I6k0),   and 
"Sundrie  new  and  artificiall  remedies  against  famine"  (1596)»

The  Rare  Book  Room  of  the  University  of  Toronto  Library  has  recently 
received  on  microfilm  an  important  collection  of  Archives  from  the  Roman 
Congregation  of  the  Propaganda  Fide»   They  derive  from  a  microfilming  project 
by  Professor  Emmett  Larkin  of  the  University  of  Chicago,  through  funds  provided 
by  the  American  Committee  for  Irish  Studies,   Copies  of  the  project  are  de- 
posited in  the  Irish  National  Library  and  St»  Louis  University» 

The  materials  chosen  are  dra\m  principally  from  the  affairs  of  the  Con- 
gregation dealing  with  England,  Ireland  and  Scotland»   The  Congregatio  de 
Propanganda  Fide  was  formally  constituted  by  Pope  Gregory  XV  in  1622  and 
charged  with  responsibility  for  propagation  of  the  Roman  Catholic  faith  in 
countries  inthout  an  established  ecclesiastical  hierarchy»   The  Congregation 
was  administered  by  a  group  of  cardinals  under  the  direction  of  a  Prefect, 
meeting  monthly  at  the  Congregazione  Générale  to  consider  important  matters 
arising  from  the  reports  of  officers  of  the  areas  under  Congregational  juris- 
diction. England,  Ireland  and  Scotland  were  under  this  jurisdiction  until  1908, 

-  25  - 

Routine  business  was  dealt  with  at  a  weekly  meeting  while  matters  which 
required  special  study  were  turned  over  to  special  committees  meeting  imder  the 
Congregazioni  Particolari.  Records  of  all  materials  submitted  to  and  sent  from 
the  Congregation  were  placed  in  an  archive,  along  \  minutes  of  meetings, 
reports  and  decisions  taken.   This  accumulation  thus  contains  a  wealth  of 
primary  source  material  for  the  historian  of  covintries  under  the  jurisdiction 
of  the  Congregation»   The  archive  was  divided  into  several  series  for  admin- 
istrative purposes  and  has  been  accessible  to  scholars  for  some  time,  subject 
to  the  general  restriction  of  the  "hundred  year  rule"  common  to  all  Vatican 

Foremost  among  the  series  in  the  present  collection  are  the  Actae  con- 
sisting of  volumes  1  to  226  for  the  years  1622  to  1862  (S^J-  i-eels)»  These  are 
the  minutes  of  the  meetings  of  the  Congregazioni  Generali,  and  the  decisions 
there  taken  upon  matter  of  general  importance»  These  documents,  in  manuscript 
up  to  181?  (volume  180 )  and  in  printed  form  thereafter,  cover  the  whole 
spectrum  of  activities  of  the  Congregation.  The  language  employed  until  1657 
(volume  25)  is  Latin,  and  thereafter  the  records  were  kept  in  Italian o   Of 
particular  interest  to  Canadian  historians  are  some  reports  in  this  series  from 
Quebec,  dated  in  the  1750' s  and  1760'So   Some  of  the  volumes  are  prefixed  with 
short  geographical  indices  which  give  an  indication  of  the  amount  of  material 
relating  directly  to  a  subject  which  is  found  in  the  volume» 

Complementing  the  Actae  is  the  series  called  Scritture  originali  riferite 
nelle  Congregazioni  Generali»  This  collection  contains  the  papers  to  which 
references  were  made  at  the  general  meetings  and  consists  of  reports  of  bishops 
and  other  prelates^  of  prefects  of  missions,  and  of  individual  missionaries; 
correspondence  of  Nuncios  and  Internuncios  and  church  officials,  petitions  of 
various  kinds  and  a  large  collection  of  letters  of  a  miscellaneous  nature»The  mic- 
rofilm collection  at  the  University  of  Toronto  contains  from  this  series  volumes 
101,  108,  131,  136,  138-139,  li^l-142,  205,  297,  308,  3^7,  35^,  361-363,  365, 
373,  377-379  and  381  covering  the  years  1622-1677  (10  reels)»  An  example  of 
the  kind  of  material  to  be  found  in  this  series  is  provided  by  Benignus  Millet  » 
He  sets  out  in  detail  the  contents  of  a  volume  largely  concerned  with  Ireland» 
Many  other  volumes  are  undoubtedly  equally  rewarding»   For  instance,  volume 
363  contains  papers  relating  to  a  specific  event,  the  appointment  of  P„  Archer 
as  Professor  of  Mathematics  in  Propaganda  College  in  I652» 

The  Congregazioni  Particolari  met  once  a  week  to  consider  special  problems 
referred  to  it  by  the  Congregazioni  Generali»  The  members  of  this  committee 
could  take  advantage  of  expert  opinion  pertaining  to  particular  areaSj  such 
as  Ireland»  The  Congregazioni  Particolari  is  represented  by  a  special  series

In  the  interests  of  efficiency  the  Congregation  set  up  a  numher  of  suh- 
committees  to  deal  \  specific  territorial  areas.  These  sub-committees 
were  called  Congressi  and  each  has  a  special  series  in  the  archives.  The 
series  test  represented  in  the  present  collection  is  the  Scritture  riferite 
nei  Congressi;  Irlanda,  of  xirhich  volumes  1-3^  covering  the  years  1625  to  1864 
(56  reels)  are  present»  These  consist  of  letters,  reports  and  miscellaneous 
documents  which  were  referred  to  the  sub-committee  on  Ireland  for  inspection 
and  recommendations  and  which  most  clearly  represent  the  scope  of  the  Con- 
gregation's ordinary  business  in  a  specific  area»  Material  concerning  Ireland, 
however,  will  also  be  found  among  the  papers  of  the  other  Congressi,  as  many 
Irish  missionary  priests  worked  in  England,  Scotland  and  continental  Europe» 

Of  the  Scritture  riferite  nei  Congressi;  Anglia,  the  present  collection 
contains  volumes  1  to  16  for  the  years  1627-1863  (37  reels)»  This  series 
corresponds  to  the  previous  one  except  that  its  territorial  sphere  is  England» 
There  is  also  a  small  series  called  Scritture  riferite  nei  Congressi;  Anglia 
miscellanee  which  lacks  volume  numbers  but  covers  the  years  1637-  to  approx- 
imately I85O  (2  reels)»  It  consists  of  miscellaneous  letters  and  documents, 
including  some  printed  reports» 

Scotland  is  represented  in  this  collection  by  the  Scritture  riferite  nei 
Congressi;  Scozia;,  volume  1,  covering  the  years  1623-1700  (3  reels)» 

Another  major  series  represented  is  called  the  Fondo  di  Vienna;  the 
collection  contains  volumes  12-16,  28,  32,  37  and  72  selected  from  the  years 
I636-I797  (9  reels)»  The  title  gives  no  indication  of  the  contents  as  these 
volumes  originally  formed  part  of  one  or  more  of  the  large  collections  in  the 
Archives»  During  the  Napoleonic  Wars  they,  along  ivlth  the  rest  of  the  Arch- 
ives, were  taken  to  Prance,  but  when  the  other  materials  were  returned  to  Rome, 
after  the  fall  of  Napoleon,  these  volumes  were  sent  by  mistake  to  Vienna,  not 
to  be  returned  to  Rome  until  after  World  War  I.,  Thus  this  collection  encom- 
passes material  from  both  the  Congressi  and  CongregazionI  Generali  series 5 
the  present  selection  being  material  concerning  Ireland,  England  and  Scotland» 

There  is  also  one  reel  of  microfilm  called  Miscellanee  varie  which  contains 
two  titles:   "Relazione  del  viaggio  di  Dionisio  Massari,  per  servizio  della 
religione  cattolica  nell'anno  1645,  1646  et  1647  in  Ibemia  con  Mons»  Rinuccini** 
and  "Varie,  Irlanda  ca»  1848o" 

This  whole  collection  has  been  catalogued  and  is  available  for  use  in  the 
Rare  Books  and  Special  Collections  Divison,  and  although  there  are  various 
kinds  of  indexes  for  most  of  the  materials,  this  library  does  not  have  them  at 
the  present  time» 

The  Archives  of  the  Congregatio  de  Propaganda  Fide  are  part  of  a  working 
collection  of  materials  still  being  maintained  by  the  Congregation  although 
its  territorial  jurisdiction  is  now  much  smaller  than  it  was  in  the  17th5  18th 
and  19th  centuries»  The  selection  of  materials  in  the  present  collection  will 
provide  historical  sources  for  the  general  as  well  as  the  church  historian 
formerly  available  only  in  the  Archive  building  in  Rome»

^^  The  Forbes  Collection^  1610  -  1660 

Michael  Finlayson 

In  the  previous  article,  in  which  we  considered  the  quite  small  number  of 
items  in  the  Forbes  Collection  published  in  English  prior  to  1610  we  were  able  to 

suggest  only  faint  signs  of  a  pattern  that  suggested  that  the  man  whose  tastes 
formed  the  Library  was  an  Independent  minister»   In  this  article  we  shall  extend 
the  analysis  to  include  the  very  much  larger  number  of  titles  that  were  published 
both  on  the  Continent  and  in  England  between  1610  and  1660, 

It  may  be  as  well  to  make  an  apology  at  this  early  stage  for  the  arbitrary 
nature  of  the  period  chosen.  It  proved  to  be  convenient,  in  the  light  of  both 
the  tripartite  nature  of  this  journal  and  the  extent  of  my   commitments  to  divide 
the  balance  of  the  Collection  into  two  parts»  It  happened  that  the  most  convenient 
point  at  which  the  division  could  be  mader,  for  historical  reasons  as  well  as  because 
It  halved  the  Collection,  was  1660»  This,  however,  has  had  the  unfortunate  effect 
of  dividing  some  of  the  most  important  series  of  titles  within  the  collection,  in 
particular  the  61  Baxters  and  the  2^'   CXirenso   In  the  course  of  this  article  we  shall 
refer  in  detail  only  to  those  works  that  were  actually  published  during  the  pre- 
scribed period  but,  where  relevant,  will  draw  attention  to  those  works  published 

In  all  there  are,  in  the  Forbes  Collection,  680  titles  published  either  on 
the  Continent  or  in  England,  between  I6l0  and  I660o  The  following  tables  provide 
us  with  a  very  general  idea  of  the  overall  character  of  this  portion  of  the  Collectiono

As  I  feel  scarcely  equipped  to  comment  on  the  Continental  works  included 
in  the  Collection,  the  remainder  of  these  remarks  will  refer  to  those  which  comprise 
the  major  portion  \*ithin  this  category,  those  published  in  England,  mostly  in  Eng- 
1 ish,  and  mostly  written  ty  Englishmen»  Of  the  Continental  works  suffice  to  say 
hat  the  European  writers  most  amply  represented  are  Johann  Heinrich  Alsted,  of 
whose  works  there  are  not  less  than  thirteen  volumes,  and  Johanes  Hoomheeck,  ten 
of  whose  Yoliimes  were  in  the  possession  of  Forbes,  five  having  been  published  before 
1660"  and  five  after  the  Restoration» 

Of  the  53?  titles  published  in  England  and  Scotland  between  lélO  and  1660 
there  are  63  that  may  be  described  as  primarily  secular  in  tone;,  the  balance;,  k7^^ 
being,  in  general  terms,  religious»  The  following  tables  attempt  to  provide  an 
indication  of  the  general  character  of  the  seculaJP  works,  together  with  a  reference 
to  their  date  of  publicationo

Into  the  largest  category,  comprising  a  substantial  part  of  the  reference 
library-  of  a  schoolmaster,  falls  Thomas  Blundeville* s  The  Arte  of  Logic,  Johannes 
BuchleT'S  Sacrarum  profanarumq  phrasium  poeticarum  thesaurus.  Franco  Burgersdyck's 
Institutionum  logicarum  llbri  dug.a  and  Charles  Butler's  Rhetoric  libri  duo.  It  is 
worth  noting  that  Forbes  possessed  two  copies  of  each  of  these  last  three  titles» 
There  is  also  a  work  by  the  "leading  classical  scholar  of  his  generation"  (See 
D.NoBo),  Thomas  Farnaby"s  Phrases  oratoriae  elegantiores,  Eilhard  Lubin's  Clavis 
Graecae  linguae  and  Henry  Cockerams  The  English  Dictionary. 

In  the  second  category  fall  the  Representation,  Remonstrance  and  Petition 
delivered  by  Sir  Thomas  Fairfax  respectively  in  1647»  '^8  and  '49,  ttJo  Petitions 
0  Parliament  from  the  Lord  Mayor  of  London,  of  1646  and  1648;  and  three  Parlia- 
:-en*;ary  Ordinances  of  1646  -80  Among  the  published  speeches  to  Parliament  in  the 
Collection  are  one  by  John  Pym  in  1641,  one  by  William  Hakewil,  The  Libertie  of 
the  Sub.ject  against  the  Pretended  Power  of  Impositions, published  in  1641,  thou^ 
delivered  to  the  I6IO  Parliament»  and  OllTer  Crom:well's  Speech  to  his  first  Pro- 
tectorate Parliament  in  January ^  1655» 


Amongst  the  general  metaphysical  and  philosophical  works  are  the  Scottish 

-  6  - 

divine  Rolaert  Baron's  Metaphysica  generalis,  Meric  Casaubon's  a  Treatise  nnnns-ming- 
Enthusiasm,  and  Christopher  Scheibler's  Metaphysica  duohus  libriSo 

The  histories  bought  by  James  Forbes  include  Nathaniel  Bacon's  Constitutional 
history,  An  Historicall  discourse  of  the  uniformity  of  the  government  of  England, 
the  first  part  published  in  16A-7  and  its  Continuation  following  four  years  later. 
Then  there  is  the  Royalist  HamonL' Estrange' s  The  Reign  of  King  Charles  and  William 
London's  The  Civil  wars  of  France  during  the  Bloody  Reign  of  Charles  the  ninth» 

The  natural  history  that  is  most  familiar  to  us,  though  it  is  far  from  being 
its  author's  most  important  work,  is  Francis  Bacon's  Sylva  Sylvarum,  and  anthology 
of  scientific  experiments.  The  other  works  in  this  category  are  somewhat  more 
removeTi  from  the  mainstream  of  seventeenth  century  scientific  thought»  There  is 
AlexarràTeT  RosB  '  s  Arcana  microcosmi,  a  treatise  designed  to  undermine  some  of  the 
novelties  being  popularized  by  Bacon  and  Harvey.  This  is  the  first  of  a  number  of 
works  in  the  Collection  ^irritten  by  Scotsmen,  many  of  them  teaching  at  Forbes'  alma 
mateT,  the  University  of  Aberdeen,  Finally  there  is  Pedro  Mexia's  The  Rarities  of 
the  t/oTldo  On  the  basis  of  the  collection  Forbes  appears  to  provide  us  with  at 
least  one  example  of  a  puritan  \irho  treats  the  seventeenth  century  scientific  rev- 
olution \T±th   something  less  than  complete  respect» 

The  proportion  of  the  Collection  dedicated  to  political  theory  is  equally 

spars'e»  There  is  the  Paraenesis  ad  aedificatores  imperii  in  imperio  by  Louis  du 
Moulin,  Reader  in  History  at  Oxford,  together  with  its  Corollarium,  published  the 
follDT;v±rrg- year,  in  1657;  another  reactionary  work  by  Forbes'  compatriot,  Alexander 
Ross, 'Lgviathan  dra-tm  out  with  a  Hook,  and  Samuel  Rutherford's  famous  treatise. 
Lex  Rex;  the  Law  and  the  Prince» 

Looking  at  the  secular  titles  in  the  collection  as  a  whole,  47  of  which 
were  published  during  the  period  of  the  revolution,  they  are  clearly  academic  and 
bookish,  there  being  very  few  titles  referring  to  contemporary  political  events» 
Almost  the  only  titles  in  this  category  are  by  the  Royalist  divine,  Michael  Hudson, 
The  Royal  and  Royallist's  Plea,  the  anonymous  King's  Cabinet  Opened,  and  Francis 
Osborne's  A  Persuasive  to  mutuall  compliance  under  the  j^Te-RP-m  ^n^r^i^m^-^ .      This  is 
cleaïly  the  library  of  a  scholar,  a  minister,  and  a  schoolmaster,  a  man  who  took 
little  interest  in  contemporary  political  events  -  always  assuming,  as  we  must,  that 
we  have  here  the  library  as  it  ;iras  in  1660»  The  absence  of  any  of  the  works  of 
political  theory  that  abounded  during  this  period,  perhaps  the  most  fertile  in  the 
history  of  English  political  thought,  is  surprising  and  revealing»  The  parliamentary 
theorists  of  the  early  1640 's,  the  radicals^  like  Lilbume,  Walwyn  and  Overton, 
later  in  that  decade,  and  the  republicans  under  the  Commonwealth,  are  all  unrep- 
resented» It  remains  to  be  seen  whether  Forbes  was  equally  unmoved  by  the  Exclusion 
crisis  of  the  next  generation» 

Obviously  the  significance  of  the  collection  aS  an  index  to  the  formation 
and  character  of  the  mind  and  interests  of  an  Independent  puritan  and  later  noncon- 
formist lies  in  what  comprises  its  major  portion,  the  religious  titles  published 
in  Britain,  upon  which  we  shall  now  focus  oui  attention»  The  following  two  tables 
provide  a  rough  guide  to  this  segment  of  the  collection  as  a  whole»  The  first 
attempts  some  sort  of  content  analysis  of  the  474  works,  while  the  second  lists  all 
those  authors  whose  books  fall  in  this  category  and  who  are  represented  by  at  least 
three  volumes.

Strikingly  apparent  within  the  collection  is  the  considerahle  hody  of  sermons 
and  doctrinal  works  delivered  or  written  during  the  two  generations  hefore  the  Civil 
War  though  often  published  or  republished  later»  Such,  for  example,  are  the  sermons 
of  Henry  Smith,  delivered  in  St»  Clement  Danes  to  his  late  Elizabethan  congregation, 
and  published  by  Thomas  Fuller  in  l6$7o  Haller  has  referred  to  these  sermons  as 
"something  like  a  household  book  for  Sunday  reading"»  [W,  Haller,  The  Rise  of 
Puritanism  (New  York,  1957)»  p.  30»] 

There  are  no  less  than  fourteen  titles  of  the  sermons  and  works  of  John  Preston, 
puritan  courtier  and  Master  of  Emmanuel  College,  Cambridge,  until  his  death  in  1628, 
as  well  as  the  three  volume  collection  of  the  Works  of  William  Perkins  and  seven  vol- 
umes, mostly  sermons,  of  another  great  preacher,  Thomas  Taylor,  and  three  volumes  of 
each  of  John  Ball,  Paul  Baynes  and  Henry  Ainsworth» 

While  there  are  a  number  of  omissions  it  would  be  true  to  say  that  this  section 
of  the  Forbes  Collection  provides  strong  support  for  William  Haller' s  thesis  concerning 
the  importance  of  the  Puritan  brotherhood  that  thrived  in  the  underground  church  in 
England  1590-1640,  ana  whose  influence  was  largely  -vcrought  by  their  sermons.  Most  of 
the  prominent  puritan  preachers  who  flourished  in  England  during  the  two  generations 
prior  to  the  War  were  to  be  found  on  the  shelves  of  James  Forbes,  attesting  to  the 
influence  of  their  loritten  as  well  as  their  spoken  wordo 

The  significance  of  the  presence  in  the  collection  of  this  considerable  body  of 
puritan  brotherhood  literature  together  with  the  obviously  religiously  radical  charac- 
ter of  the  Civil  War  tracts  is  underlined  by  the  relative  absence  of  works  in  defence 
of  the  established  church»  It  is  interesting  to  note  that  of  the  approximately  45 
titles  in  this  category  half  were  actually  ^/ritten  by  bishops  of  the  church»  These 
range  from  Thomas  Cranmer's  Reformatio  legum  ecclesiasticarum,  a  volume  of  sermons' 
delivered  by  Lancelot  AndreweSç,  The  Pattern  of  catechistal  doctrine  at  large^  three 
volumes  by  the  Bishop  of  Salisbury,  John  Davenant,  two  by  George  Do^mame^  Bishop  of 
Derby  and  one  each  by  Patrick  Forbes,  Bishop  of  Aberdeen  and  by  William  Forbes, 
Bisla^p  of  EdinbuDgh,  and  four  works  of  the  Archbishop  of  Armaghj  James  Ussher»  Perhaps 
it  is  significant  that  the  Bishop  most  represented  in  the  collection  was  USsher,  whose 
scheme  for  a  reduced  episcopacy  could  conceivably  have  led  to  a  settlement  of  the 
ecclesiastical  issue  in  1641  since  it  comprised  the  basis  of  the  presbyterian's  posi- 
tion at  the  Savoy  Conference  which  followed  the  Restoration»  One  must,  of  course, 
aliirays  be  irary  of  superficial  generalisations  since  the  collection  also  houses  the 
Works  of  the  leading  Laudian  defender,  Joseph  Hall,  Bishop  of  Non^ich,  and  also  Peter 
Heylyn's  The  Undeceiving  of  the  People  in  the  point  of  the  Tithes»

While  Haller-s  thesis  concerning  the  existence  and  influence  of  the  Puritan 
■brotherhood  ap^rears  unquestionahle  and  is  supported  "by  the  Forhes  Collection  he  is  on 
less  solid  ground  when  he  \\n:ite8  that  - 

"the  disagreements  that  rendered  Puritans  into  preshyterians,  independents, 
separatists  and  baptists  were  in  the  long  run  not  so  significant  as  the 
qualities  of  character  of  mind  and  of  imagination;,  which  kept  them  all 
alike  Puritan"»   [Haller,  Opo  citoc,  p»  17 o] 

I  believe  that  it  can  be  argued  that  the  differences  between  the  "Puritans 
of  the  right"  and  the  "Puritans  of  the  left"  were  no  less  "fundamental"  than  those 
which,  prior  to  1641,  distinguished  the  Puritans  from  the  Anglicans o  That  "puritans" 
of  whatever  hue  mostly  became  "Dissenters"  after  1660  stems  less  from  that  alleged 
intrinsic  "homogeneity"  of  the  movement  which  made  disputes  over  ecclesiological 
questions  mere  trifles  than  from  the  peculiar  circumstances  surrounding  the  eccles- 
iastical settlement  of  I66O-I0  [This  whole  question  has  been  argued  in  greater 
detail  in  my  unpublished  PhoDo  dissertation  at  the  University  of  Toronto  Library, 
"Independency  in  New  and  Old  England,  1630-1660:  An  Historiographical  and  Historical 

To  this  question  the  Forbes  Collection  is  marginally  relevant»  After  all, 
Forbes  \m8   an  Independent  minister  for  50  years  after  1654,  albeit  an  atypical  one» 
Almost  300  voliimes  in  this  Collectionr  were  written  and  published  during  the  period 
1640-1660  [out  of  a  total  number  of  approximately  22,000  titles  published  and  collected 
during  this  period  by  the  newsagent  George  Thomason]»  These  were  the  formative  years 
of  Forbes'  life^  between  the  ages  of  11  and  31>  when  he  took  the  remarkable  step  of 
emigrating  from  Royalist,  Presbyterian  Scotland  to  become  an  Independent  minister  to 
a  gathered  congregation  at  Gloucester  under  the  Protectorate» 

The  majority  of  these  nearly  300  volumes  were  actually  t/ritten  by  ministers 
who  came  to  be  ejected  from  the  Church  of  England  in  the  purges  of  1660-2,  though 
to  label  them  all  "puritan"  or,  after  the  Restoration,  "nonconformist"  is  to  oversim- 
plify a  gtoup  which  is  rather  more  heterogeous»  The  most  Conspicuous  name  that  falls 
within  this,  the  largest  single  category,  is  that  which  comes  most  nearly  to  dominate 
the  whole  colleôtionj  namely  Richard  Baxter,  who  was  responsible  for  no  less  than 
nineteen  titles  that  fall  within  this  period,  and  61  overall»  There  seems  little 
doubt  that  during  this  early  period  and  for  the  remainder  of  hie  life  Forbes  vae   pro- 
foundly impressed  by  the  minister  from  Kidderminster»  Yet  ve   also  know  from  his 
involvement  in  the  Savoy  Conference  of  1658  that  Forbes  identified  himself  with  the 
cause  of  Independency»  Hence  we  must  infer  that  he  attributed  a  great  deal  of  im- 
portance to  what  is  central  to  Independency,  namely  the  attempt  to  combine  a  belief 
in  a  sectarian  and  voluntarist  type  of  church  with  acceptance  of  a  national  church, 
united  on  fundamentals»  On  this  question  of  church  government,  thought  by  Haller  to 
be  peripheral  to  the  puritan  mainstream,  yet  regarded  by  contemporaries  as  lather  more 
important,  Forbes  clearly  dissociated  himself  from  the  views  of  Baxter» 

Forbes'  adherence  to  the  Independent  polity  expresses  itself  in  the  Collection 
though,  again,  we  must  be  careful  of  draining  too  firm  conclusions  on  the  basis  of  what 
is  rather  intangible  circumstantial  evidence»  Bearing  in  mind  their  numerican  in- 
significance -  ten  out  of  121  members  of  the  Westminster  Assembly  of  Divines  dissented 
from  its  generally  presbyterian  recommendations  -  the  works  of  Independent  ministers 
are  perhaps  disproportionally  present  in  the  Collection»  Jeremiah  Burroughes,  one 
of  the  Dissenting  Brethren  at  the  Westminster  Assembly  has  18  titles  in  the  catalogue, 
while  the  name  of  John  Owenp  Cromwell's  principal  theological  adviser, occurs  2k 
times,  though  only  6  of  these  books  had  been  published  by  I66O»  In  fact,  all  five  of 
the  Dissenting  Brethren  who  were  responsible  for  the  Apologetical  Narration  in  164A-, 
Thomas  Goodwin,  Philip  Nye,  William  Bridge,  Jeremiah  Burroughes,  and  Sydrach  Simpson 

-  10- 

were  represented  in  the  Collection^  though  it  is  noteworthy  that  the  seminal  tract 
is  missing»  These  five  together  who  with  John  Ch^en,  comprise  the  leadership  of 

Independencjr  tefore  the  Restoration,  were  responsible  for  58  volumes  in  the  Collection, 

some  of  themj,  of  course,  falling  beyond  1660»   In  addition  to  the  works  of  the  English 
Independents  in  the  Collection,  there  are  also  some  by  New  EnglanderSj  whose  involvement 
in  the  ecclesiastical  controversies  in  England  in  the  lé'+O's  has  often  been  underestimated 
by  historians,,  John  Cotton^  the  principal  theorist  of  the  New  England  Way,  is  represent- 
ed by  two  volumes,  though  not  by  his  work  in  church  government  but  by  an  Exegesis  of 
Sto  John's  First  Epistle,  and  A  Modest  and  Clear  Answer  to  Mr»  Ball's  Discourse  of 
Set  Forms  of  Prayer»  Also  included  in  the  collection  is  Richard  Mather's  influential 
Church- government  and  church-covenant  discussed,  Massachusetts  did  provide,  after  all, 
the  model  for  the  Independent  Way:  thus  it  is  not  surprising  that  their  two  principal 
theorists  of  ecclesiastical  polity  should  be  knoxm  to  and  read  by  Forbes» 

At  the  same  time,  of  course,  and  here  we  catch  the  limitations  of  this  approach 
to  an  historical  problem,  we  must  recognize  that  most  works  in  this  category  were 
actually  i\rritten  by  divines  who  between  16^0  and  1660  came  to  identify  with  the  cause 
of"Presbyterianism"o  Not  that  this  is  surprising  since  of  the  approximately  2000 
divines  ejected  at  the  Restoration,  the  proportion  of  "Presbyterians"  to  "Independents" 
was  about  7 si» 

The  whole  question  of  tracing  intellectual  influences  is  never  clear-cut; 
for  every  volume,  elaborating  upon  the  Independent  polity  or  dealing  \/ith  more  general 
theological  or  inspirational  themes  by  Independents,  one  could  name  five  by  divines 
adopting  a  position  to  the  left  or  right»  To  the  left  there  are,  for  instance,  four 
volumes  by  the  radical  secretary,  John  Saltmarsh,  several  more  ^y   Walter  C^addock, 
and  a  defence  of  Fifth  Monarchy  by  John  ArcherpThe  personall  raigne  of  Christ  upon 
earth»  On  the  right  there  is  the  large  collection  of  Ik   titles,  mostly  sermons,  to 
the  House  of  Commons,  by  Richard  Vine,  nine  volumes  by  Thomas  Gataker,and  eight 
volumes,  mostly  doctrinal,  by  a  third  and  equally  moderate,  i»eo  presbyterian,  member 
of  the  Westminster  Assembly;,  Anthony  Burgess» 

The  Forbes  Collection  does  not  provide  us  with  so  refined  a  tool  that  we  may 
plumb  the  depths  of  his  mind  during  these  crucially  formative  years  of  his  life»  Yet 
it  does  provide  an  index  to  his  major  pre-occupations»  In  addition  to  the  works  of 
feSkfegesis,  the  sermons  and  the  doctrinal  and  inspirational  ^vritings  one  expects  to 
find  in  a  clergyman's  library^  we  find  a  relatively  large  number  of  books  relating 
tb  ftcclesiological  subjects,  anyv/here  from  +he  conventional  presbyterian  solution 
tot^Ounded  by  John  Bumsley  to  the  radical  questions  of  Edward  Burroughs,  He  certainly 
'.thsii^es  the  ecclesiological  concerns  of  his  generation  and  the  shape  of  his  library 
Mt  only  makes  his  involvement  in  the  Savoy  Conference  unsurprising;,  but  also^  suggests 
that  the  question  of  church- government  was  more  vital  than  Wm»  Haller  was  prepared  to 
ÔônOede»  It  remains  to  be  seen  whether  this  is  peculiar  to  the  Civil  War  period  or 
Continues  beyond  the  Restorationo

A  Note  on  the  Pharmaceutical,  Medical  and  Aispricultural  Books  in  the 

Forbes  Collection 

Andrew  Watson 

The  Forbes  collection  contains  three  seventeenth-century  pharmacopoeias,  all 
published  in  London  and  related  in  varying  ways  to  the  Pharmacopoeia  Londinensis 
of  1618,  the  earliest  English  pharmacopoeia,  sponsored  by  the  London  College  of 
Physicians,  which  became  the  first  pharmacopoeia  officially  adopted  by  a  nationo 
One  of  these,  Pharmacopoeia  Collegii  Regalis  Londini,  (London:  ToNewcomb,  1682) 
is  a  later  edition  of  a  revision  of  the  above  work  carried  out  in  1678 o  Here  the 
reader  learns  how  to  make  pharmaceutical  preparations  and  how  these  should  be 
taken,  but  not  when  to  take  them  or  what  to  expect»   In  the  margins,  against  the  list 
of  simples,  are  written  the  English  translations  of  the  Latin  names  of  simples;  the 
writing  appears  to  be  in  Forbes'  hand»  These  annotations  perhaps  suggest  that  the 
o;mer  actually  used  the  book;,  possibly  in  jninistering  to  himself  or  more  probably 
to  his  parishioners,  and  that  he  was  unfamiliar  with  Latin  plant  nameSo  Both  these 
suspicions  receive  some  confirmation  from  the  other  two  pharmaceutical  works  in 
the  collection:  Pharmacopoeia  Londinensis  (London:  ThoSo  Dawkes  et  al»,  1685) 
and  Pharmacopoeia  Bateana  (London;  SoSmith  &  B»  Walford,  169^),  both  by  William 
Salmon,  "Professor  of  Physick"»  These  works  are  both  in  English  and  explain  the 
useSp  as  well  as  the  preparation,  of  mixtures;  although  not  annotated,  both  books 
show  some  signs  of  use» 

The  two  medical  books  in  the  collections,  Scholae  medicae  ad  candidatorum 
examen  pro  Laurea  impetranda  subeuhdum  (Leyden:  Jo  Maires  1628)  by  Abraham  Fram- 
besarius  and  Thesaurus  medicinae  practicae  (London:  RoBoulter,  1673)  are  both, 
as  the  title  of  the  first  suggests,  elementary  books;  even  so,  they  do  not  appear 
to  have  been  much  used  and  are  not  annotated»  Was  the  giving  of  pharmaceutical 
advice  id.thin  the  compass  of  a  parish  priest,  while  medical  advice  ira,s  not? 

Gentlemen,  even  those  who  took  little  interest  in  farming,  often  had  in  their 
libraries  a  few  works  on  agriculture»  The  two  agricultural  works  in  Forbes' 
library,  however,  are  unusual  in  being  very  early  and  rather  specialized»  Hugh 
Plat t e ' s  Th<  Jewell  House  of  Art  and  Nature» »» together  with  sundry  new  experiments 
in  the  Art  of  Husbandryg  Distillationy  and  Moulding  (London:  Peter  Short,  159^) 
contains  practical  advice  on  a  wide  variety  of  household,  workshop,  and  farmyard 
problems,  such  as  how  "to  make  an  artificial  Malmesie'"s>  how  "to  make  smooth  or 
glistering  floores  or  wals"  and  how  "to  hold  a  hot  iron  barre  in  a  naked  hand"» 
(•TDip  your  hand  in  molten  glew  and  strew  the  powder  of  home  burnt  to  ashes  upon 
the  glewo»»")»  For  farmers  the  book  contained  little  that  was  novel  (unlike  another 
work  of  Platte's  which  urged  the  planting  of  grain  seeds  in  rows  and  at  spaced 
Intervals,  a  radical  departure  from  the  usual  practice  of  broadcasting  and  one  which 
vas  to  be  adopted  only  later);  the  books  however,  made  ma.ny  ingenious  suggestions 
and  there  are  splendid  illustrations  of  the  gadgets  and  machines  Platte  advocated» 
The  other  agricultural  work»  Reynolde  Scot's  A  Perfite  Platforme  of  a  Hoppe  Garden 
(London:  Henry  Denham,  1578)  is  the  second  edition  of  a  work  first  published  two 
years  earlier  which  is  the  earliest  book  in  the  English  language  devoted  solely  to 
the  gro^  of  hops»  English  ale  had  first  been  adulterated  with  hops  in  the 
fifteenth  century,  the  practice  having  come  from  Flanders;  but  the  public  and 
officials  were  both  at  first  extremely  suspicious  of  the  new  brew  which  Andrew 
Boorde,  for  instajicep  considered  the  "natural  drink  for  a  Dutche  man"»   Gradually, 



-nr*  9rf 

-  13  - 

however,  tieer  tecame  the  more  popular  than  ale:  by  1598  a  foreign  visitor  could  write 
that  "the  general  drink  is  beer«„„  excellently  well  tasted,  hut  strong  and  what  soon 
fuddleSo"  The  appearance  of  a  number  of  books  on  hop  growing  reflects  the  growing 
demand  for  hops  in  the  making  of  beer»  One  might  suspect  that  the  book  came  into 
Forbes'  collection  almost  accidentally,  but  his  copy  is  abundantly  annotated  in  his 
o\im  hand  and  the  annotations  show  a  wide  experience  of  hop  growing»  Can  Forbes 
have  had  a  hop  faimi? 

(Edo  note:  In  a  later  issue  of  the  Bulletin  Professor  Watson  will  publish  a  supple- 
ment to  his  earlier  article  on  agricultural  manuals  in  the  University's 
Libraryo   In  collaboration  with  Professor  Roberta  Styran,  he  is  also 
preparing  an  article  on  our  collection  of  pharmacopoeias)» 




What  follows  is,  despite  its  appearance,  neither  free  association  in  the 
presence  of  columns  of  figures,  nor  a  parody  of  statistics  (one  of  the  adjuncts  of 
modem  library  science  which  is  truly  scientific) o  It  is  a  tentative  way  to  begin 
to  come  to  grips  with  the  building  of  a  personal  library  if  one  is  allowed  the 
initial  assumption  that  a  man  builds  his  library  --  that  it  grows  with  him,  not 
untended,  but  with  his  care» 

It  must  be  said  straightway  that  my  discussion  needs  great  amplification  by 
example  in  order  to  make  any  distinct  claims  about  the  collecting  habits  of  Forbes 
as  revealed  in  his  existing  library  stocks   If  a  full-scale  study  of  his  collection 
were  made,  that  study  would  have  to  be  prefaced  by  the  generalizations  sind  qualifi- 
cations I  put  forth  belowo   I  must  stress  how  well  aware  I  am  of  the  dangers  of  over- 
simplifying the  problems  at  hand  and  of  the  vague  nature  of  much  of  the  "data"»  This 
in  my  defense  in  case  bare  numbers  —  which  seem  often  to  convince  us  when  words 
fail  —  lend  too  definite  a  tone  to  this  essay» 

Personal  libraries  are  I  think  built  up  by  association»  Names  or  genres  or 
subjects  become  established  early,  and  the  collection  builds  outward  from  them»  We 
do  not  expect  Forbes'  library  to  be  like  Wing  in  miniature:  we  expect  his  prejudices. 
even  his  curious  lacunae»  We  will  never  know  how  Forbes  built  up  his  collection^  about 
this  we  can  make  only  careful  generalizations»  If  he  has  a  high  number  of  first  ed- 
itions of  contemporaries  such  as  Baxter,  we  should  be  safe  in  assuming  that  he  got 
hold  of  those  texts,  in  the  main,  relatively  soon  by  seventeenth-century  book  trade 
standards  after  their  appearance»  It  will  be  seen  from  the  email  sampling  which 
follows  that  Forbes  acquired  on  the  average  one-third  of  the  output  of  individual 
titles  by  those  of  his  contemporaries  in  whom  he  seems  to  have  been  interested»  This 
is  not  surprising  when  one  considers  that  Forbes  had  a  great  interest  in  controversial 
literature,  and  it  is  surely  indicative  that  Forbes'  habits  of  acquisition  were  not 
random»  Similarly,  if  we  assume  as  I  have  done  that  most  titles  were  probably  acquired 
(this  need  not  always  be  taken  as  meaning  "purchased")  relatively  soon  after  publication. 


_  14  - 

we  can  postulate  a  steady  interest  in  the  publishing  career  of  certain  individuals» 

M7  thesis  is  really  a  proposal:  that  a  personal  library  can  he  studied,  not 
merely  eiraineratedo  That  we  could,  through  some  effort  and  if  the  survey  weïe  broad 
enonghj  use  Humeri cal  data  to  certain  advantage»  Does  the  proportion  of  one  sort  of 
books'  heW  in  a  library  relative  to  the  number  published  in  a  similar  time-period  vary 
significantly  from  individual  to  individual?  Or  is  it  constant,  based  on  a  large  sample 
of  pefstmal  libraries?  Would  a  comparable  library  in  another  century  show  a  radically 
different' figure?  What  of  the  proportion  of  classical  texts:   is  a  relatively  low  per- 
centage among  Forbes'  books  consistent  with  what  we  know  of  seventeenth-century  educ- 
ation in"  Scotland?  What  of  the  conspicuous  gaps?  Do  we  too  readily  assume  that  an 
educated  man  intellectually  active  in  the  latter  half  of  the  seventeenth  century 
would  hare  the  works  of  Milton  in  his  possession?  Forbes  has  but  one  item»  If  enough 
data  cou:ld  be  assembledj  bare  figures  would  begin  to  help  us  understand  the  intellec- 
tual life  of  the  times o  We  have  bibliographical  records  against  which  we  may  reflect 
the  data:  the  Term  catalogues  (from  I668),  Wing,  Maunsell's  catalogue  of  "divinity" 
(l59'5)ç.  contemporary  booksellers'  printed  lists,  institutional  donation  registers, 
and  other  private  libraries»  Jayne  notices  21?  private  libraries  between  I6OO  and 
1640  in  his  Library  catalogues  of  the  English  renaissance  (Berkeley,  University  of 
California  Press,  1956)»  ~ 

From  Michael  Finlayson's  article  I  have  taken  six  names  dealt  with»  Of  course 
others  could  as  well  have  been  chosen,  and  of  course  Baxter's  name  is  an  obvious  choice» 
I  span  the  period  covered  in  the  Finlayson  article,  and  beyond  that  to  include  the  pub- 
lishing careers  of  all  six  figures»  Using  Wing,  and  STC  where  applicable,  I  have 
plotted  every  distinct  title  (second  and  later  editions  are  not  counted)  within  five- 
year  time-unitSo  I  then  surveyed  Forbes'  stock  including  the  "bound-withs"  in  the 
same  iray» 

The  tabulation, for  what  it  is  worth,  follows»  The  grouping  of  Forbes'  items 
in  the  five-year  periods  by  imprint  date  is  again  subject  to  the  qualification  that 
it  is  probable  that  most  of  the  titles  were  acquired  soon  after  their  appearance, 
though  Forbes'  possession  of  two  Baxter  items  with  imprint  dates  between  1700  and 
1704  where  no  new  titles  of  Baxter  appeared  reminds  us  that  we  are  on  thin  ice  here» 
The  publishing  statistics  by  themselves  begin  to  show  patterns,  and  might  be  ex- 
pressed graphically  to  some  advantage»  The  last  column  shows  the  Forbes  holdings  as 
a  percentage  of  the  published  figure  --  averaging  about  one-third»

Now  I  want  to  glance  "briefly  at  another  point  of  view»  A  provincial  Anglican 
priest's  library  which  seems  to  be  roughly  contemporary  with  Forbes'  is  catalogued  in 
the  Miscellanies  of  the  Philobiblon  Society o*  The  introduction  does  not  tell  us,  un- 
fortunately, who  might  have  formed  the  collections,  but  it  does  state  that  it  "appears  to 
have  been  collected  within  a  limited  period,  and  to  have  received  no  subsequent  additions" 
(po  16) o  It  concludes  with  a  comment  which  as  well  describes  the  Forbes  Collection: 

The  bibliographer  will  look  in  vain  for  any  work  of  surpassing  interest; 
but  the  curious  reader  may  find  in  these  pages  a  faithful  account  of  what 
iras  then  considered  a  useful  library  of  reference  for  the  theological 
student „ 

We  may  leave  my  statistics  for  a  few  comparative  notes  of  interest  for  these  two 
seventeenth-century  collections»  Perhaps  these  notes  make  more  persuasive  the  thought 
that  the  man  makes  the  books  as  much  as  the  books  make  the  man,  and  that  the  personal 
element  in  a  library  can  be  isolated  and  studied»   The  Tong  library,  for  example, 
has  no  Baxters  at  alio  Burroughes,  Gataker,  Owen,  Seàg\irick  and  Vines  are  similarly 
unrepresented»  I  am  not  surprised  to  find  that  both  libraries  have  Salmasius'  De  guber- 
natione  Dei;  more  interestingly,  both  possess  Pflacher's  Analysis  typica  testamenti» 
They  share  an  Alsted  Encyclopaedia,  1630  (the  only  Alsted  in  the  Tong  library,  as  op- 
posed to  a  dozen  items  among  Forbes'  books);  both  possess  Burnet's  History  of  the  Ref- 
ormation of  the  Church  of  England,  which  might  be  expected,  Comenius'  Janua,  Thomas 
Manton's  Practical  commentaryoooon  the  Epistle  of  James^,  1657  (the  only  Manton  in  the 
Tong  library,  but  one  of  twelve  in  Forbes'),  and  at  least  sixteen  other  items  in 
common»  Where  Forbes  has  none,  the  Tong  library  has  thirteen  items  by  Jeremiah  Drexelio 
( 1581-1638),  an  Augsburg  Jesuit  whose  many  works  encompassed  topics  from  theology  to 
astronomy  and  Hermetic  literature  and  were  translated  into  English  and  even  into  Welsh 
in  the  seventeenth  century»  All  thirteen  are  foreign  printings,  being  the  products  of 
Cologne  or  Antwerp»  Beside  Forbes'  two  Erasmus  items,  Tong' s  library  has  a  higher  per- 
centage: seven  texts,  including  a  15^0  l^ew   Testament»  Forbes'  interesting  Quaker 
holdings,  which  include  a  broadside,  are  not  paralleled  in  the  Tong  collection»  The 
Tong  library,  by  my  quick  count,  has  3^2  items»  Among  them  are  some  twenty- eight 
classical  texts,  a  slightly  higher  proportion,  I  imagine,  than  Forbes'  library  can 


We  have  begun  to  see  how  much  one  personal  libraiy  can  tell  us  about  another»   If 
enough  material  could  be  gathered  from  such  sources  as  Notes  and  queries  (that  grave- 
yard of  raging  issues  where,  the  writer  of  the  article  on  the  Tong  library  assures  us, 
much  data  on  personal  libraries  has  been  interred)  and  from  the  sources  Jayne  specifies, 
work  of  value  could  be  done  on  this  very  interesting  aspect  of  the  seventeenth- century 

Botfield,  Beriah»   "The  catalogue  of  the  minister's  library  in  the  Collegiate  Church 
of  Tong,  in  Shropshire,  with  some  notes  of  that  structure",  Miscellanies  of  the

The  Editors  of  the  Bulletin  have  been  informed  of  a  library  project  in  Calif- 
ornia vhich  may  be  of  interest  to  our  readers,  especially  to  subscribing  libraries. 
Six  Catholic  colleges  in  the  San  Franclsco-Los  Angeles  area  have  joined  together  to 
create' the  Cart holic  Microfilm  Center,  an  independent  corporation  presently  located 
at  th"ë  Alma  College  Library,  PoOo  Box  1258,  Los  Gatos,  California  95030„ 

The  purpose  of  the  CMC  is  to  collect  on  microfilm  a  wide  selection  of  16th 
century  texts  on  religious  history  and  related  subjects»  The  material  so  far 
collected  is  offerjted  to  any  libraiy  for  $20,00  a  roll  or  20  cents  a  foot.  During 
the  summer  of  1968  the  Center  filmed  about  893  titles  of  Reformation  material  from 
the  Evangelical  Seminary  in  Herbome,  Among  the  authors  represented  by  five  or 
more  \irorks  are  uickolaus  von  Amsdorf,  Jakob  Andrea,  Theodore  Beza,  Johann  Brenz, 
Heinrich.  Bullinger  (23),  Niels  Hemmingsen,  Peter  Martyr,  Caspar  Schwenckfeld  and 
Valentin  Weigel»  A  complete  listing  of  authors  and  titles  is  available  from  the 
Director,  John  J,  Alhadef,  SoJ» 

The  CMC  operates  with  the  advice  of  Carl  E.  Nelson  and  Charles  McCoy  of  the 
Pacific  School  of  Religion,  and  of  Louis  Spitz  of  Stanford  University,  along  with 
the  librarians  and  faculty  of  the  Graduate  Theological  Union  in  Berkeley.  Up  to 
this  point  they  have  been  filming  theological  material  primarily,  but  they  are 
prepared  to  film  any  material  to  aid  scholarly  research  in  the  field,  and  ^  to 
promote  the  sharing  of  libraty  resources.  The  library  and  college  plan  to  remove 
to  Berkeley  in  1970,  but  for  the  present  the  address  is  as  above.

Index  to  the  Checklist  of  Pamphlets 




Renaissance  and  Reformation  has  gro\m   over  the  past  five  years  from  a  few  pages 
in  length  to  a  substantial  size  and  from  a  readership  of  a  few  dozen  to  three  hundred. 
With  this  growth,  new  arrangements  have  been  made  for  its  publication.  Henceforth 
it  will  be  printed  by  the  University  of  Toronto  Press  and  have  a  more  convenient 
size.   It  will  continue  to  come  out  three  times  a  year.   The  cost  will  be  roughly 
the  same;  precise  details  will  be  included  in  the  subscription  notices  mailed  out  in 
September.   The  bulletin  will  continue  to  focus  on  resources  for  research  in  the 
period  of  the  Renaissance  and  Reformation.   Periodically,  special  printings  will  be 
made  of  major  articles  that  have  appeared  in  R&R,  bringing  them  up  to  date  --  articles 
such  as  the  finding  lists  of  emblem  books  and  of  Renaissance  legal  literature. 

The  new  editor  of  R&R  will  be  Professor  John  A.  McClelland  of  the  Department  of 
^ench  of  Victoria  University  in  the  University  of  Toronto.  The  associate  editor 
111  be  Professor  James  Estes  of  the  Department  of  History  of  the  University  of  Toronto. 

(continued  on  page  17 ) 





A  small  group  of  titles  in  the  Toronto  Putlic  Libraxy's  splendid  Osborne  Coll- 
ection of  early  childrens'  books  is  from  the  period  before  1700.  The  smallness  of 
the  number  reflects  the  fact  that  the  commonest  early  childrens'  books  vere  works  of 
instruction,  and  they  simply  wore  out  after  decades  of  use.  But  it  results  also 
from  the  collecting  habits  of  Edgar  Osborne,  whose  interest  in  imaginative  literature 
for  children  led  him  to  collect  only  a  few  representative  examples^  of  the  early  school- 
book.  The  library  has,  however,  added  a  number  of  sixteenth  century  titles  since  the 
collection  was  housed  there,  and  more  are  purchased  from  time  to  time. 

The  present  Renaissance  holdings  of  the  collection  (53  titles  before  1700  out  of 
8000  accessions  including  serials)  represent  many  kinds  of  early  young  peoples'  bookSo 
They  range  from  a  black-letter  grammar  (Strasbourg,  1505 ),  through  the  popular  tale 
Valentine  and  Orson  (in  what  is  believed  to  be  a  rare  edition  of  1688),  to  one  of  the 
earliest  of  "modem"  children's  books,  the  Histoire  ou  Contes  du  temps  passé  of  Charles 
Perrault  (Paris,  1697).  There  are  two  editions  of  the  influential  Horapollo  (rec- 
orded in  RM's  "Census  of  Emblem  Books  in  Toronto,"  II  (3)  1-7  and  III  (l)  2-13),  three 
mathematical  works,  a  number  of  titles  typical  of  the  formal  grammar  school  curriculum, 
a  recusant  catechism,  a  superb  broadsheet  ABC  which  we  reproduce  on  page  6  ,  and 
many  books  to  instruct  youth  in  devout  and  proper  behaviour.   These  last  fall  into 
the  category  of  courtesy  literature,  and  will  perhaps  be  treated  in  another  issue  of 
R&R.  The  books  to  which  I  have  limited  myself  in  the  list  that  follows  are  those 
that  a  yoiong  person  might  have  met  during  his  formal  education,  whether  that  of  app- 
rentice or  gentleman. 

Though  there  are  one  or  two  rareties,  several  items  not  in  STC  or  Wing,  and  some 
very  beautiful  books  that  witness  to  the  stature  of  the  Osborne  collection,  the  only 
titles  that  can  be  approached  as  a  group  are  nine  interesting  items  of  Aesopiana^ 
Several  of  the  six  continental  editions  of  Aesop  employ  the  same  pool  of  woodcuts; 
sometimes,  however,  cuts  have  been  redra\m,  as  we  can  see  in  the  several  versions  of 
"senex  et  mors"  on  page  ^.    Except  for  the  smallest  books,  the  Aesops  follow  the 
miscellaneous  format  of  such  volumes;  most  contain  some  selection  of  Aesopian  fables, 
\rith   Latin  renderings  by  Avienus  and  perhaps  Valla  and  other  authors,  the  Vita  of  Planudes, 
and  most  frequently  the  mock-epic  Batrachomyomachia  (Battle  of  the  Frogs  and  Mice) 
once  ascribed  to  Homer. 

A  seventeenth-century  cause  célèbre  is  reflected  in  the  elegant  Aesop  printed 
at  Oxford  in  1698,  which  contains  158  fables  in  Greek,  ten  in  Hebrew,  and  eight  in 
Arabic  (in  each  case  with  parallel  Latin)  and  another  sixty  in  Latin  alone»   The 
text  of  Aesop  was  an  issue  in  the  battle  during  this  period  over  the  superiority  of 
"ancients"  to  "modems."  The  preface  of  the  Oxford  Aesop  (illustrated  on  page  '+   ) 
takes  the  side  of  the  "ancients"  in  loftily  patronizing  the  scholarship  of  the 
"modems'"  Richard  Bentley  (who  had  revealed  that  the  Fables,  though  ancient,  were 
spurious),  but  on  a  later  page  the  editor,  Anthony  Alsop  nervously  displays  the  man- 
uscript and  printed  sources  from  which  his  fables  were  chosen.  The  volume  is  dedicated, 
in  the  high  vein  of  the  Dunciad,  to  James  Scudamore,  Viscount  Scudamore  of  Slego,  with 
verses  by  Alsop  beginning. 

Augusta  pub  es:  ô  per  antiquiae  Domus 

Spes  summa:   surgens  Scudamoreorum  decusj 

For  his  services  to  poetry  and  scholarship,  Alsop  was  rewarded  with  a  mauling  m  the 
very  passage  of  Duncaid  lY  in  which  Pope  savages  Bentley, 

Some  titles  that  had  to  he  omitted  from  my  list  of  schoolhooks  may  nevertheless 
interest  readers  of  R&R.   One  in  particular  is  The  Images  of  the  Old  Testament, 
lately  expressed,  set  forthe  in  Ynglisshe  and  Franche,  with  a  playne  and  brief 
exposition,  (Lyon,  Jean  Frellon,  1$49)»   This  is  a  beautifully  printed  edition  of 
Historiarum  veteris  Instrumenti  icônes,  first  published  in  Lyon  in  1538  by  Mo  &  Go 
Trechsel.   The  fine  engravings  are  after  drawings  wholly  or  in  part  by  Hans  Holbein 
the  Younger.   The  French  verses  are  probably  by  Gilles  Corrozet,  but  I  have  not  been 
able  to  trace  the  author  of  the  English  versions.   John  Dunton's  The  Young  Student's 
Library, "by  the  Athenian  Society, "(London,  1692,  Wing  D  2635)  cannot  have  been  in- 
tended for  schools.   It  is  really  a  species  of  seventeenth-century  Reader's  Digest, 
amiably  mingling  excerpts  from  \in?itings  on  philosophy,  theology,  voyages,  natural 
science,  etc.  Three  books  that  fall  beyond  my  terminal  date  of  1700  are:  a  pair  of 
"Lily"  grammars  bound  with  Lily's  Rules  Construed,  of  the  17th  bentury  schoolmaster 
William  Haines  (London,  William  Norton,  1704-5);  an  edition  of  Cato  prepared  by  another 
17th  century  educator,  Charles  Hoole  (London,  R,  Harbin  for  the  Company  of  Stationers, 
1728)  :and  the';twelfth  English  edition  of  Comenius'  Orbis  Sensualium  Pictus  (London, 
So  Leacroft,  1777). 

Some  of  the  books  listed  here  have  not  yet  been  catalogued  in  the  Osborne  Coll- 
ection. Many  more  have  been  purchased  since  the  first  published  catalogue  listed  a 
mere  3000  volumes  in  1958.   Miss  Judith  St,  John,  Librarian  in  charge  of  the  collection, 
who  gave  me  valued  assistance  in  preparing  the  list  of  schoolbooks,  says  that  a  new 
printed  catalogue  is  now  being  contemplated, 

(N.B,   The  listing  attempts  to  reproduce  the  wording  of  titles  faithfully,  but 
capitalization  and  punctuation  have  frequently  been  regularized,)

THE  FORBES  COLLECTION  1660-1712  (conclusion*) 


Michael  Finlayson 

We  come  now  to  a  consideration  of  the  final  section  of  the  Forbes  Collection, 
acquired  by  him  some  time  between  the  Restoration  in  1660  and  his  death  in  1712» 
(This  is  to  ignore  those  9  titles  which,  since  they  were  not  published  until  after 
1712,  may  for  obvious  reasons  not  be  regarded  as  significant  as  an  index  to  the 
mind  of  this  particular  late  seventeenth  century  nonconformist  clergyman.)  In  all, 
this  part  of  the  Collection  numbers  763  titles.  The  following  tables  provide  a 
guide  in  terms  of  place  and  date  of  publication  of  the  works,  and  in  terms  of  their 

Date  of  Publication

New  England 

























Total  published  on  Continent     45

in  English  2

The  most  obvious  feature  of  the  table  is  the  continued  decline  in  the  import- 
ânôëOf  'Continental  works,  noted  initially  in  my  previous  article  (See  Vol.  V,  noo  2, 
p.  k)   although  it  might  be  remasrked  that  the  trend  was  reversed  during  the  first  of 
the  5  decades  xmder  consideration  here.  Almost  all  of  the  k^   titles  are  the  works 
of  Continental  Protestant  theologians  and  exegates  and  form  the  basic  reference 
library  for  a  learned  prêcher.  There  are  7  volumes  by  the  Dutchman  Gilbertus  Voet, 
and  5  each  by  Johannes  Hanbeeck,  Melchior  Leydecker  and  Herman  WitBius» 

See  the  earlier  articles  In  E4cR.Y,  1-2  by  Michael  Finlayson,  David  Sinclair  and 
Natalie  Z.  Davis  on  the  Forbes  Collection,  recently  acquired  by  the  Rare  Book 
Room  of  the  University  of  Toronto. 



-  12  - 

The  balance  of  this  part  of  the  Collection  was  published  in  England  and 
Scotland  with  the  exception  of  2  works  published  in  Ireland  and  1  in  Bostono   While, 
as  ve   have  seen,  Forbes'  library  contained  a  number  of  works  that  were  actually 
iirritten  by  New  Englanders,  Increase  Mather's  Meditations  on  Death  is  the  first  ex- 
ample of  a  work  published  there  that  was  acquired  by  the  Gloucester  Independent o 
According  to  Evans,  this  edition  of  Mather's  work  is  actually  the  1321st  title 
kno\«i  to  have  been  printed  in  the  American  colonies. 

Looking  at  these  volumes  published  outside  the  Continent  between  1661  and 
1712  we  can  make  a  broad  distinction  between  those  112  that  are  fundamentally 
secular  in  tone  and  contait. and  those  6O6  that  might  be  described  as  religious. 

The  following  table  attempts  roughly  to  provide  a  general  analysis  of  the 
content  of  the  112  secular  works. 

Contemporary  political  polemic 


Rhetoric,  Grammar 








Natural  History 




Pari,  papers 


Contemp.  eco.  soc.  institutions 







Date  of  Publication 

1661-70                 Ik 

1671-80                 27 

1681-90                 27 

I69I-I7OO                32 

1701-1712                12 


Once  again  the  non- religious  works  in  the  Collection  are  those  of  the  school- 
master rather  than  of  the  student  of  contemporary  affairs,  although  the  proportions 
are  slightly  different  from  those  listed  in  the  previous  article»  Forbes  appears 
to  have  been  at  least  a  little  more  interested  in  the  politics  of  the  Exclusion 
crisik  in  the  1680' s  than  he  had  been  in  the  earlier  period.  His  library  contains, 
for  instance,  Robert  Filmer' s  The  free-holders  grand  inquest  touching  our  sovereign 
lord  the  king  and  his  parliament,  published  in  1680 , as  well  as  Shaftsbury's  Letter 
from  a  Person  of  Quality  to  his  Friend  in  the  Countiy,  published  five  years  before,. 
There  is  also  a  copy  of  Robert  Ferguson's  account  of  the  stormy  parliaments  of 
1680-1,  A  Just  and  Modest  Vindication  of  the  Proceedings  of  the  Two  Last  Parliaments; 
There  are  also  three  volumes  of  The  Historical  and  Political  Monthly  Mercury ;  cover- 
ing April,  1697,  August,  1703  and  Februa2?y,  I7O6.   Finally  there  are  two  copies  of 
the  Republican  Henry  Neville's  Plato  Redivivus,  both  published  in  1681, 

Indicative  of  the  peculiar  bias  affecting  Forbes'  choice  of  titles  is  the 
fact  that  while  he  possessed  three  works  by  John  Locke  they  were  scarcely  the  ones 
that  we  would  now  tend  to  regard  as  most  important.  While  the  first  one  is  no  sur- 
prise. An  Essay  concerning  Human  UndprRt^jujinp;^  the  other  two  reflect  Forbes' 
genuine  pre-occupation.  First  there  is  A  Cbpmon-place  Book  to  the  Holy  Bible  and 
secondly  A  Paraphrase  and  notes  on  the  Epistles  of  St.  Paul. 

-  13  - 

The  second  major  category  into  which  Forbes'  secular  titles  fall  includes 
English  sjid  Latin,  grammar,  rhetoric,  logic,  etc  Here  the  works  are  similar  to 
those  considered  previously  and  range  from  William  Ronksley's  Regiae  Grammaticae 
clavis;  or  two  Parsing  Tables,  and  Hugh  Robinsons?  Scholae  Wintoniensis  phrases 
latinae,  through  Thomas  Lye's  A  New  Spelling  Book  and  William  Li}.y's  A  Short 
Introduction  of  Grammar  generally  to  be  Used  to  Mark  Lewis'  Institutio  Grammaticae 
Puéril is  and  Jean  Le  Clerc 's  Logica  siva  ars  retrocinandi. 

Amongst  the  other  secular  works  that  the  schoolmaster  Forbes  acquired  \rere 
four  volumes  of  Ovid,  including  his  Tristia,  Metamorphoses  and  his  Letters,   one 
voliome  of  Yirgil's  works,  and  one  by  Marcus  Aurelius  Antoninus.   There  are  also 
a  number  of  books  concerned  with  contemporary  social  or  economic  institutions  such 
as  An  Accouht"(?f  Charity-schools,  and,  also  ajionymous,  Bank-credit;  or  the  use- 
fulness and  security  of  the  bank  of  Credit  Examined. 

Fundamentally,  the  conclusions  drawn  in  the  previous  article  concerning 
Forbes'  attitude  to  and  interest  in  non-religious  questions  do  not  require  modifica- 
tion. Given  the  significance  of  the  political  and  intellectual  movements  that  were 
occurring  during  his  lifetime  the  godly  minister  of  Gloucester  appears  to  have  been 
remarkably  unprogressive.  Donne,  Milton,  Hobbes,  Locke,  Herrington  and  Newton,  — 
names  we  tend  to  associate  with  the  profound  intellectual,  political  and  scientific 
revolutions  of  the  century  —  are  all  virtually  unrepresented  in  A/hat  is  a  rather 
large  library  by  17th  century  standards.   One  rose  hardly  makes  a  summer,  yet 
Forbes  does  not  appear  to  belong  within  the  ranks  of  the  avant  garde  of  his  gen- 
eration, as  Percy  Miller  and  Christopher  Hill  would  both  have  us  believe. 

The  bulk  of  this  portion  of  the  Collection  as  of  the  previous  part  comprises 
works  basically  religious  in  content.  The  following  table  lists  all  those  authors 
of  such  volumes  who  are  represented  by  at  least  three  titles  of  which  not  less  than 
ti^o  fall  within  the  post  1661  period.

Just  as  the  heavy  preponderance  of  religious  writings  is  indicative  of 
Forbes'  attitude  -  mainly  one  of  indifference  -  to  the  major  secular  development 
of  his  day,  so  too,  amongst  these;  religious  works,  we  may  attempt  to  discern,  this 
time,  positively  rather  than  negatively,  his  position  in  the  spectrum  of  opinions. 
The  above  table  contains  the  names  of  ^■^■   writers,  each  of  whom  wrote  at  least  three 
books  acquired  by  Forbes  and  who,  between  them  were  responsible  for  almost  half 
of  the  religious  titles  in  this  portion  of  the  collection„  With  the  exceptions 
only  of  Bishops  Burnet,  Pearson  and  Stillingfleet;  and  of  the  eccentric  Edmund 
Hickeringill,  who  converted  from  Quakerism  back  to  Anglicanism;  and  Edward  Polhill, 
who  together  wrote  21  of  the  works,  all  were  identified  strongly  with  the  cause  of 
religious  and  ecclesiastical  radicalism,  and  at  least  18  were  ejected  from  parishes, 
lectureships  or  colleges  at  the  Restoration,,   In  addition  there  were  at  least 
seven  who  were  too  young  to  hold  a  benefice  in  1660  but  who  ministered  to  congrega- 
tions outside  the  established  church  during  the  late  seventeenth  century  as  well  as 
several  others  who  were  not  ejected  because  they  died  before  1660 o 

It  is  less  simple,  however,  to  use  the  Collection  as  a  more  refined  index  to 
its  corner's  mind,  to  learn  something  about  the  precise  kind  of  Non-conformism  for 
which  Forbes  was  so  prepared  to  suffer o  Puritanism,  we  know,  is  a  label,  of  rather 
limited  utility,  used  to  describe  the  great  variety  of  creeds  and  opinions,  that 
proliferated,  especially  during  the  period  of  the  English  Revolution o  Certainly 
when  we  come  to'look  at  individuals  such  as  Forbes,  Puritan  is  virtually  useless 
as  a  label,  and  has  to  be  replaced,  in  his  case,  by  Independent o   Similarly  for  tte 
post-Restoration  period  Nonconformist  is  scarcely  more  helpful  -  here  too  we  must 
make  allowance  for  the  quite  distinct  categories  into  which  the  so-called  Noncon- 
formists may  fall. 

Yet  this  is  the  point  at  which  a  library  is  too  undifferentiated  to  be 
especially  helpful»  We  have  noted  before  in  oiir  discussions  of  this  Collection 
that  when  we  attempt  to  become  too  specific  in  our  efforts  to  detect  significance 
in  the  titles,  we  are  frustrated  by  the  presence  of  works  presenting  antithetical 


positions.  Here  too,  this  is  the  case»  I^epresented  in  the  above  table  there  are 
the  relatively  conservative,  almost  invariably  scholarly  Presbyterian,  clergymen, 
such  as  Richard  Baxter  and  the  man  who  preached  his  fioneral  sermon  (with  a  copy  of 
that  sermon)  William  Bates,  along  with  the  ecclesiastically  and  often  doctrinally 
eccentric,  frequently  unlearned  thinker- theologians  such  as  John  Bunyan  and  Thomas 
Delaune.   Forbes,  for  instance,  possessed  a  copy  of  Lelaune's  A  Plea  for  the 
Non-conformists,  for  whitih- the  author  wàs_ imprisoned  in  Newgate  prison  where  he 
together  with  his  whole  family  died  of  general  privation» 

It  is,  of  course,  in  the  nature  of  a  library  to  mirror  its  o-vmer' s  general 
field  of  interest,  but,  within  that  field  to  represent  the  variety  of  opinions  to 
i^hich  men  could  and  did  adhere.  We  can  thus  go  only  so  far  when  we  attempt  to 
chart  a  man's  mind  by  reference  to  his  library»  There  is,  however,  an  alternative 
explanation  for  our  inability  to  reconcile  to  our  total  satisfaction  the  man's 
mind  with  his  library»  This  lies  in  the  almost  inevitable  tendency  on  the  part  of 
historians  to  employ  more  or  less  anachronistic  labels  to  dispose  of  the  other\/ise 
impossible  complexities  of  this  subject»  Nowhere  does. this  apply  more  than  to  the 
religious  and  ecclesiastical  history  of  seventeenth  century  England  where  as  I  have 
already  suggested,  the  labels  "Puritan"  and  "Nonconformist"  have  been  tried  and 
found  wanting:  perhaps  the  same  fate  awaits  the  next  layer  of  tags»  "Presbyterian", 
"Independent"  etc. 



Within  the  last  few  years  The  Newberry  Library  in  Chicago  has  purchased 
collections  of  manuscripts,  microfilms  and  printed  books  which  \\rill  be  of  great 
interest  to  our  readers  working  in  Reformation  studies»  These  acquisitions  reflect 
the  interest  of  Dr»  John  A,  Tedeschi  in  the  Italian  Reformation  an4  the  role  of 
the  library  as  co-publisher  of  the  Corpus  Reformatorum  Italicorum»l 

An  important  recent  acquisition  are  the  nine  volumes  of  "Castelvetro" 
manuscripts  containing  copies  of  extremely  interesting  official  and  diplomatic 
documents,  letters  of  sovereigns,  reports  of  ambassadors-concerning  court  and 
state  affairs  (in  the  style  of  the  famous  Venetian,  relazioni),  and  contemporary 
first-hand  accounts  of  the  political  and  religious  situations  in  several  European 
countries,  almost  all  from  the  second  half  of  the  sixteenth  century»  Many  of  the 
documents  have  never  been  published  and  the  originals  may  no  longer  exist»  The 
volume  containing  reports  on  Prance  (thirteen  texts)  includes  an  account  by  a 
Florentine  gentleman,  Tommaso  Sassetti,  of  the  St.  Bartholomew's  day  massacre  in 
Paris  and  a  Report  on  the  siege  of  Paris  (1590)»  This  fascinating  historical 
library  was  assembled  under  mysterious  circumstances  at  Copenhagen  in  159^  by  a 
Modenese  religious  exile  and  man  of  letters,  Giacopo  Castelvetro  (l5'+6-d»l6l5)  ■> 
Many  of  the  texts  contain  marginal  comments  in  his  hand»

Another  manuscript  collection  which  recently  came  to  the  Newberry  is  the 
archive  of  the  Parravicini,  an  influential  feudal  family  of  the  Valtellina  (an 
Alpine  valley  formed  by  the  river  Adda  extending  north-east  of  Milan),  which  during 
the  Reformation  belonged  to  the  Grisons  and  served  as  an  important  haven  for  Italian 
Protestant  exiles.   The  collection  totals  over  3» 500  documents  and  manuscript  books 
spanning  the  period  from  the  mid-15th  to  the  mid-19th  century.   Much  of  the  material 
is  of  significance  to  social  and  economic  historians,  including  as  it  does  do\\?ries 
wills,  land  contracts  and  extensive  correspondence.  Other  documents  concern  the 
Reformation,  such  as,  for  example,  a  list  of  Protestants  living  in  the  Valtellina 
early  in  the  17th  century.   This  compilation  may  have  been  the  blueprint  for  the 
bloody  slaughter  (Sacro  Macello)  of  evangelicals  which  took  place  in  1620  and  in 
which  a  certain  Giovanni  Maria  Parravicini  was  one  of  the  leading  conspirators. 

Much  manuscript  material  concerned  with  the  activity  of  the  Inquisition 
in  Italy  has  been  obtained  on  microfilm  and  reproduced  in  Xerox.   This  includes  the 
Indices  (arranged  alphabetically,  chronologically  and  geographically)  of  the  trials 
held  before  the  Venetian  Inquisition  between  1341-179^'.   Numerous  codices  contain 
documents  from  the  Archiginnasio: .  library  in  Bologna  and  illustrate  abundantly 
the  operation  of  the  Bolognese  Inquisition  during  the  sixteenth  century.   In  the 
group  is  the  correspondence  exchanged  by  the  Holy  Office  in  Rome  and  the  provincial 
Inquisition  from  1572  to  159^.-   They  reveal  the  extent  to  which  the  local  In- 
quisitor depended  upon  instructions  from  Rome,  even  in  the  most  trivial  matters» 
The  letters  discuss  measures  taken  against  the  diffusion  of  Protestant  ideas  in 
the  Bologna  area,  ajnd  against  necromancers  and  relapsed  Jews.   They  are  also  an 
important  source  for  the  study  of  the  application  in  Italy  of  the  regulations 
of  the  newly- foijnded  Congregation  of  the  Index.-'  Another  Bolognese  document  is 
the  Libro  de'  Morti,  dating  from  the  second  half  of  the  l6th  century.   It  includes 
the  names  of  all  individuals  executed  for  crimes,  religious  and  other. ^ 

Also  available  at  Newberry  are  Xerox  copies  of  Italian  Inquisitorial 
documents  located  in  libraries  outside  of  Italy,  a  small  part  of  the  archival 
treasures  taken  from  Rome  during  the  Napoleonic  period  and  never  returned.  The 
two  principal  collections  in  this  category  are  the  sentences  issued  by  Roman  and 
provincial  Inquisitors  between  I567-I6O3.   They  are  especially  valuable  since  the 
archive  of  the  Inquisition  in  Rome  is  still  closed  to  scholars  and,  in  any  case, 
the  majority  of  trial  records  themselves  have  perished  or  been  dispersed.   The 
originals  are  now  preserved  at  Trinity  College  Library,  Dublin, ^  Some  years  after 
Napoleon's  fall  they  were  obtained  by  the  Duke  of  Manchester  and  eventually  trans- 
ferred to  Ireland.

The  second  collection  \d.ll  make  it  possible  to  reconstruct,  at  least  in 
part,  the  activity  of  the  Florentine  Inquisition.  The  Newberry  has  acquired  the 
microfilms  of  documents  now  preserved  in  the  Bibliothèque  Royale,  Brussels»   This 
collection,  in  four  voliimes,  includes  correspondence  between  the  Inquisitors  of 
Rome  and  Florence  and  various  Inquisitorial  decrees  and  proclamations  of  the 
16-I8th  centuries  regulating  policy  towards  non-Catholic  foreigners,  Jews,  prohibited 
books,  etc. 

Moving  from  Italy  to  France,  the  Newberiy  has  acquired  a  block  of  I50 
pamphlets  to  add  to  its  already  important  collection  of  l6th  and  17th  century 
political  and  religious  literatiire. '   Among  many  interesting  items  here  are  a 
1568  edition  of  the  letters  of  Jeanne  d'Albret  (La  Rochelle,  B.  Berton)}  an 
attack  on  Henri  III,  Les  Sorceleries  de  Henri  de  Valois  (1589);  and  funeral 
orations  for  François  de  Lorraine,  Duc  de  Guise  (by  Jacques  Le  Hongre,  given  in 
March  I562);  for  Henry  III  (given  by  Claude  de  Privas  de  Morenne  in  August,  1595); 
and  for  Henri  IV  (by  Jacques  Suarez  and  Nicolas  de  Paris,  June,  I6I0). 

Each  year  The  Newberry  Library  makes  available  for  research  in  its  coll- 
ections a  limited  number  of  grants-in-aid  (l-3  months)  and  year-long  Junior  Fellow- 
ships for  graduate  students  who  have  reached  the  dissertation  level.

political  pamphlets,  1560-l653i  in  The  Newberry  Library,  compiled  by  Doris

microfilm  in  the  near  future  by  Bell  &  Howell. 

NEW  PLANS  .„,  (continued  from  page  l) 

They  will  be  aided  by  a  Board  of  Advisors,  made  up  of  scholars  at  Toronto  and  also 
at  other  universities  served  by  the  bulletin.  In  this  way  it  is  hoped  that  research 
activities  and  resources  at  these  universities  will  be  more  readily  brought  to  the 
attention  of  the  editors.  The  Board  of  Advisors  is  as  follows:  Thomas  Came^ 
McMaster  University;  Beatrice  Corrigan,  Italian  and  Hispanic  Studies,  University  of 
Toronto;  Natalie  Z.  Davis,  Department  of  History,  University  of  Toronto;  F.  David 
Hoeniger,  Department  of  English,  Victoria  University  in  the  University  of  Toronto; 
Brayton  Polka,  Department  of  History,  York  University. 

The  present  co-editors  want  to  thank  the  contributors  of  articles  over  the  past 
five  years  for  their  good-humoured  help  and  especially  to  acknowledge  the  work  of 
Germaine  Warkentin,  editorial  assistant  for  R&R»

Among  the  many  books  in  the  collection  of  the  late  Professor  J»  Stanley  Will, 
purchased  hy  the  University  of  Toronto  in  1961,^  are  9^  French  pamphlets  on  religi- 
ous and  political  subjects  published  from  I56O  to  1635»  Useful  as  they  are  not  only 
to  the  study  of  French  history  from  the  outbreak  of  the  French  Religious  Wars  to  the 
years  before  the  Fronde,  but  also  to  the  study  of  communications,  propaganda  and 
public  opinion,  pamphlets  such  as  these  have  already  \iron  some  attention  from  historians 
and  bibliographers o  Exploring  the  origins  of  the  French  newspaper  and  periodical  press, 
Jean-Pierre  Seguin  has  done  several  excellent  studies  on  the  short  pamphlet  which  re- 
ports current  events  of  a  political,  religious  or  sensational  nature»   Using  a  looser 
definition  of  pamphlet,  the  Newberry  Library  has  published  two  check-lists  of  its  grow- 
ing collection,  including  there  both  new  bulletins  and  substantially  longer  polemics 
occasioned  by  the  political  and  religious  controversies  of  the  day»^ 

f    An  important  aid  to  the  understanding  of  this  literature  is  now  about  to  be  pro- 
vided by  Robert  0,  Lindsay  of  the  University  of  Montana  and  John  Neu  of  the  University 
of  Wisconsin,  in  their  union  list  (under  press)  of  more  than  10,000  French  political 
pamphlets,  15A-7-1648,  found  in  the  libraries  of  the;  United  States»  The  present  check- 
list of  French  pamphlets  in  the  Rare  Book  Room  of  the  University  of  Toronto  Library, 
then,  is  a  first  step  toward  a  union  list  of  such  material  m  Canada»  As  will  be  seen 
more  fully  below,  we  have  in  most  cases  folloA/ed  the  admittedly  arbitrary  definition 
by  Professors  Lindsay  and  Neu  of  the  length  of  a  pamphlet--100  pages  or  less»  This 
means  that  several  distinguishable  genres  are  mixed  here,  a  situation  which  hopefully 
Will  not  reduce  the  usefulness  of  the  list  to  readers»  Indeed,  though  not  alike  in

t.xeme  or  form,  the  pamphlets  are  linked  together  by  the  circumstances  and  the  quality 

of  their  publication,  their  common  audience,  and  by  their  direct  relevance  to  the  current 

political  and  religious  scene. 

The  periodical  press  did  not  formally  begin  in  France  until  1631,  but  the  printing 
of  news--of  recent  battles,  of  extraordinary  crimes  or  floods,  of  events  in  the  lives 
of  celebrated  people — occurred  already  in  the  late  fifteenth  century»   Of  the  9^  pam- 
phlets described  here,  21  are  accoimts  of  this  kind,  most  of  them  descriptions  of  up- 
risings and  battles  (for  instance,  see  1621-1622  below),  while  7  others  are  eulogies 
narking  the  death  of  an  important  personnage  such  as  Henri  IVo  All  of  this  material 
is  partisan  to  some  degree  or  other,  the  funeral  orations  evidently,  but  also  the  Yray 
Discours  of  the  Battle  of  Jamac  (l$69-l)  and  the  Recit  veritable  of  the  defeat  of  the 
Huguenot  rebels  of  Montauban  (l621-3)  and  the  other  "true"  and  "certain"  descriptions 
of  military  events  frankly  support  one  ani^y  against  the  othero  As  Jean-Pierre  Seguin 
has  shown,  this  was  already  the  case  with  military  news  at  the  time  of  the  French 
invasions  of  Italy. 

The  largest  category  of  pamphlet  here,  however,  is  the  political  or  political- 
religious  polemic.  More  than  2/3  of  the  collection  is  of  this  character,  a  reflection 
not  merely  of  Professor  Will's  interests^  but  of  the  absolute  increase  of  polemical 
literature  in  France  after  the  Colloquy  of  Poissy  and  the  outbreak  of  the  Wars  of  Rel- 
igion. Some  of  the  pamphlets  justify  or  attack  specific  programmes  or  movements,  such 
as  those  concerning  the  seizure  of  Paris  by  the  Holy  Catholic  League  in  1588.  Others 
focus  on  a  person.  An  Advert  i  s  s  emen  t  of  early  1589»  for  instance  (l589-l),  is  a  mock 
procès  against  Henri  III  in  which  he  is  found  guilty  of  the  murders  of  the  Duke  and 
Cardinal  de  Guise  and  other  crimes  and  is  sentenced  to  lose  his  royal  title  and  his 
right  to  the  obedience  of  the  French  people.  The  Histoire  tragi qve  . . .  de  Pierre  de 
Saverstpn  (I588-I9),  ironically  dedicated  to  the  Due  d'Épemon,  points  to  the  similar- 
ities between  the  favorites  of  Edward  II  and  Henri  III  and  predicts  a  dire  end  for  the 
French  mignon . 

The  pamphlets  do  not  always  remain  centered  on  a  specific  person  or  event,  however» 
3ome  involve  a  general  examination  of  the  state  of  affairs  in  France  or  proposals  for 
)road  reform^  such  as  the  Remonstrances  of  Nicolas  Pasquier  (l6l0-4),  occasioned  by  the 
issassination  of  Henri  rv.  These  are  not  without  interest  for  the  student  of  political 
bheory.  For  example,  the  Estât  present  de  la  France  (16O6-I)  includes  a  defense  of 
'reason  of  state".  The  Image  de  la  France  representee  a  messievrs  des  estats  (1615-7) 
*ams  of  the  dangerous  implications  of  Calvinist  precepts  and  polity  for  the  French 
lonarchy  and  even  cites  the  celebrated  remark  of  James  I  at  the  Hampton  Court  Conference-- 
'no  Bishop,  no  King"--  as  support, 

A  final  group  of  polemical  pamphlets,  10  in  numbers,  a^e  limited  to  theological 
[uestions  or  religious  matters  more  narrowly  conceived»  These  range  from  the  violent 
.ttack  by  Artus  Desire  on  the  Pxè|bestants,  La  singerie  des  huguenots  (l57^-3)  to  the 
'ftrious  theological  debates  of  the  Parisian  pastor  Pierre  Du  Moulin  (l62A~l,  1625-2 
hrough  4). 

I    As  might  be  expected,  the  name  of  the  author  is  omitted  from  the  majority  of  these 
''amphlets,  not  merely  from  the  title-page,  but  from  the  entire  work.   In  26  cases  the 
uthors 'names  are  given  on  the  title  page:  in  funeral  orations,  public. religious 
ebates,  or  harangues  at  meetings  of  the  estates;  in  letters  from  the  king  or  other 
prominent  personnages  such  as  Henri,  Due  de  Guise,  or  Henri  II  de  Bourbon,  prince  de 
jondé.  The  other  publicists  have  wished  the  credit  and  responsibility  for  their  argu- 
ent to  accrue  only  to  their  cause,  not  to  their  o\m   persons» 


-  20  - 

Despite  the  spread  in  subject  matter  and  quality  in  these  pamphlets,  they  display 
the  characteristics  of  publications  for  rapid  and  immediate  reading  by  a  large  audiences 
69?^  of  them  are  linder  25  pages  in  length,  and  only  1?  of  the  9^  pamphlets  are  over 
50  pages.   They  are  published  a  relatively  short  time  after  the  events  which  occasioned 
them.  The  description  of  the  battle  of  Jamac  of  March  13,  1569  (1569-1  )  was  in  print 
in  Paris  by  March  26;  letters  describing  military  events  at  Montauban  on  September  28, 
1621  (1621-3)  in  print  in  Paris  by  October  k.      The  polemics  and  sermons  are  sometimes 
less  rushed,  but  are  available  to  readers  within  a  few  months  of  their  compositiono 

Almost  all  of  the  pamphlets  are  of  small  format,  thus  easy  to  transport  and  hawk 
in  the  streets.  Many  of  them  show  signs  of  hasty  setting,  the  type  being  badly  placed 
on  the  page,  and  of  indifferent  proofreading.  Very  few  of  the  works  have  ornamental 
letters  or  other  decorations  (the  funeral  orations  are  probably  the  most  attractive 
of  all  the  editions)  and  very  few  have  any  illustrations.  This  last  point  is  curious, 
because  Jean-Pierre  Seguin,  in  studying  the  publication  of  news  in  the  first  half  of 
the  century  and  of  crime  and  other  sensational  stories  throughout  the  century,  found 
that  many  brochures  were  illustrated,  albeit  with  stock  wood-cuts  of  battles  or  comets 
or  floods  already  in  the  printer's  possession.   In  the  Toronto  collection,  however, 
we  find  only  a  portrait  of  the  young  Henri  III,  then  the  Due  d'Anjou, at  the  time  of 
the  battle  of  Jamac  (1569-I);  a  portrait  of  Henri,  Due  de  Guise,  on  an  edition  of  his 
letter  to  the  king  (1588-8);  and  an  interesting  illustration  of  the  alleged  "monstres 
diaboliques"  used  in  the  magical  practices  of  Henri  III  (1589-^). 

Unfortunately,  the  pamphlets  themselves  offer  little  evidence  about  those  who 
read  them  or  how  much  they  cost.  In  only  six  cases  (1586-I,  161^-1,  I6I5-I»  1620-1, 
1625-3,  l63^-l)  are  there  signatures  or  book-plates  indicating  who  had  possessed  the 
books  before  Professor  Will  purchased  them.  Three  of  these  are  Catholic  religious 
institutions.  Evidently  these  books  were  not  considered  important  enough  to  bear  the 
signature  of  their  o-imers. 

58  of  the  9^  pamphlets  give  the  name  of  printer  or  publisher  on  the  title-page, 
perhaps  a  high  percentage  (6l^)  in  light  of  the  controversial  nature  of  the  material» 
Some  of  these  men   (Fédéric  Morel,  Guillaume  Chaudière,  the  imprimeur  du  roi  lamet 
Mettayer)  are  from  well  kno^m  Parisian  houses;  others  (Jean  Petit-Pas,  the  widow  of 
François  Plumion)  are  from  modest  establishments.  Our  sample  is  too  small  to  extract 
the  names  of  publishers  specializing  in  news  and  pamphlet  literature,  though  it  is 
significant  that  Abraham  Saugrain,  son  of  a  Protestant  publisher  of  Lyon  and  Pau,  who 
opened  up  his  o\m  shop  in  Paris  round  1595,  is  represented  here  by  six  editions. 
Most  of  the  signed  editions  add  the  phrase  "avec  permission"  and  twelve  of  them 
(including  the  funeral  orations)  actually  have  privilèges  for  varying  lengths  of  time» 
But  much  of  this  literature  could  never  have  been  "permissible"  to  the  monarachy  and 
much  of  it  may  have  been  printed  in  violation  of  existing  privilèges.  Thus,  a  sig- 
nificant proportion  of  the  Toronto  pamphlets  are  free  not  only  of  the  required  name 
of  printer,  but  even  of  the  place  of  publication.  As  such,  they  bear  witness  to  the 
conditions  under  which  the  printer  of  propaganda  worked  in  the  late  l6th  and  early 
17th  century — to  the  theoretical  limitations  of  the  law  and  the  possibilities  for 
violating  it  ;«.thout  reprisal.

Editorial  Principles. 

The  editors  have  in  most  instances  followed  the  criteria  of  Professors  Lindsay 
and  Neu  in  compiling  their  list  of  French  political  pamphlets  in  U.S.  libraries: 
any  political  or  religious  publication  in  French  or  Latin,  printed  in  France  from 
1547  to  l6kQ   and  under  a  100  pages  in  length.   In  only  seven  instances  have  we  in- 
cluded works  somewhat  longer  than  100  pages,  and  here  because  the  works  were  already 
listed  in  the  Newberry  Library  checklist  or  because  they  seemed  closely  related  to 
the  rest  of  the  Toronto  pamphlet  material.   In  the  case  of  a  group  of  works  by  Pierre 
du  Moulin  (l624-l;  1625-2  through  k),   all  of  them  bound  together,  we  have  included 
editions  published  in  Geneva,  but  all  of  them  are  based  on  editions  which  first 
appeared  in  France.  The  difference  between  our  terminal  dates  —  I56O  and  1635  — 
and  those  of  the  Lindsay-Neu  list  is  due  merely  to  the  lack  of  editions  in  the 
Toronto  library  before  and  after  these  dates. 

One  category  of  pamphlet  literature  which  is  included  in  both  the  Newberry 
checklist  and  the  forthcoming  lanion  list  has  not  been  included  here,  namely  royal 
edicts  and  other  official  proclamations.  About  100  such  items  exist  at  the  University 
of  Toronto  Library,  but  they  have  already  been  described  in  the  "Finding  List  of 
Renaissance  Legal  Literature"  (R  &  R»  IV,  IO6-O9).  Recent  acquisitions  in  this  area 
will  be  catalogued  in  a  subsequent  Addendiim  to  the  Finding  List  of  Renaissance  Legal 

Following  the  practice  of  the  Newberry  lists  and  the  forthcoming  union  lists, 
the  Toronto  pamphlets  are  here  ordered  chronologically  by  year,  with  an  alphabetical 
ordering  id-thin  each  year.  Like  the  other  lists,  we  have  adhered  to  the  peculiarities 
of  spelling  in  the  titles,  though  not  to  peculiarities  of  type  or  capitalization.  All 
printing  information  available  from  the  editions  themselves  has  been  given,  as  has  been 
ijhe  number  of  pages  or  leaves.  Whenever  an  edition  is  also  listed  in  the  two  volimes 

of  the  Newberry  checklist,  the  Newberry  catalogue  number  has  been  given  as  N or 

N*.  . , «  An  index  by  author  and/or  short- title  has  been  added  at  the  end  of  the  check-

Professor  Neu  had  used  so  that  we  could  follow  them  insofar  as  possible»

The  Politiques  say  that  they  are  juet  candlesticks,  but 
there  is  no  wick  in  them.  They  are  "monstres  diaboliques."

d'Espemon  vn  coffre  plein  de  papiers  de  sorceleries,  ausquels 
y  auoit  diuers  mots  d'Ebreu,  Caldaiques,  Latins  et  plusieurs
