/T is not claimed that the books described in this Catalogue 
form a Library. Tbey are only a Collection. Nearly 
twenty years ago I began a tolerably comprehensive course 
of historical reading. In selecting the works necessary for this 
I got into the way of frequenting booksellers' shops, and thus 
became inoculated with the disease which, in its development, 
made me a CoUe&or. For many years I found rest after a hard 
day's work in Wall Street, by pending an hour or two on my 
way home in one or more places where I could look over recently 
purchased books. In those days (Mr. Sabin's shop in Nassau 
Street was the favorite resort of book-coUeStors, and one could 
meet several of them there nearly every afternoon. The arrival 
of a box from London, containing new importations of books, 
was always an occasion of interest, and usually gave rise to 
keen competition for the privilege of making the first sele^ions. 
Ovir. Sabin was an enthusiastic student of Americana, and I was 
soon instilled with the same feeling. My first efforts were not 
directed to the purchase of rarities so much as to early local 
histories of towns, accounts of Indian fights, and other incidents 
of Special interest. But it is natural to work back to first 
principles, and so I found myself striving more and more every 
year to secure the original sources of our knowledge of the dis- 
covery and early history of the country. This made me more 
or less familiar with the works issued in the early part of the 
sixteenth century and the latter part of the fifteenth. Then I 
became impressed with the wonderful beauty of these volumes, 
and I began to study and collet Early Printed Books. 

The diversion of several of the finest libraries in England 
gave unexpected and most favor able opportunities to secure books 

of this description. It is not in the range of probability that 
collectors will ever again have such facilities in this dire&ion 
as were given by the sale of the Sunderland, Hamilton Palace, 
Beckford, Syston Park, and PVodbuU Libraries. They con- 
tained volumes of which bibliographers have written enthusias- 
tically for a hundred and fifty years, and which were generally 
supposed to be out of the reach of modern coUedors. I was 
fortunate enough to secure many of the more notable of these 
precidus volumes, and to crown fittingly my acquisition of them 
by the purchase of the most remarkable of aU printed books, as 
it is the first — the Gutenberg Bible. In sele^ing these examples 
of early typographical work I have always tried to get books 
which were not only beautiful and in fine condition but which 
were inherently valuable. Next to the Gutenberg Bible the 
oldest printed volume in the collection is the Catholicon of 
Balbus. It is the fourth book printed with a date (1460), and 
is the first lexicon or dictionary published. The " De Ofiiciis " 
of Cicero is remarkable as being the first classic printed 
and as exhibiting the first example of Greek characters in 
print, all previous passages having been written in. The col- 
lection contains three other First Editions of Cicero. There 
are to be found also the only known copy of the first 
printed Arithmetic, the First Editions of Apuleius, Aristotle, 
St. Augustine, Boccaccio, CcBsar, St. Chrysostom, Columbus, 
Cortes, Euclid, Euripides, Hesiod, Homer, Horace, Lactantius, 
Lascaris {the first book printed in Greek), Peter Martyr, Nepos, 
Petrarch, Pindar, Plato, Plautus, Pliny, Plutarch, Ptolemy, 
Seneca, Tacitus, Theocritus, Vespucius, and Virgil. It must 
be borne in mind that these volumes were printed direCtly from 
manuscripts and that they have, therefore, the same impor- 
tance, virtually, as the original classical codices. No matter 
what may be the estimation in which public opinion holds 

a classical education, such hooks as these will possess an 
attra^ion for intelligent men and women for all time. They 
represent the great leaders in Fiction, Poetry, Mathematics, 
Philosophy, Theology, History, and Travel, and they are the 
very foundation-stones of the literature of the cultivated world. 

The collection is strong in typographical rarities. It con- 
tains, in addition to those already named, the first three and 
the only books printed by John of Spira, the first printer of 
Venice ; the first book printed in Italy ; one by the first printers 
of Taris; one in which signatures were used for the first time; 
the first volume issued in octavo form ; the first hook printed 
by the stereotype process ; and many others of almost equal 

Next in importance are the Americana. At the head of the 
list stands the unique copy of Columbus's Letter in Spanish to 
Luis de Sant Angel, which I believe to he the earliest printed 
report of Columbus' s first voyage. Then follow the two editions 
in Latin, one of which Harrisse claims to be the first of aU the 
Latin editions, while Major makes the same claim for the other. 
PVith them is to he found also the equally rare edition in 
German. After these come the Voyages of Vespucius and of 
Cortes, the Works of Peter Martyr, the Voyages ofNune^ Caheca 
de Vaca, of Laudonniere, Jacques Cartier, Oviedo, Hakluyt, 
De Bry, Champlain, Garcilassode la Vega, Captain John Smith 
and others. The rarest of the accounts of the settlements made 
in this country by the English and French during the seven- 
teenth century are also to he found in the coUe&ion. The 
copy of Eliot's Indian Bible, which is usually classed under 
Americana, is next in interest, perhaps, to Gutenberg's great 

Of the books printed in England, Caxton's edition of 
Higden's Polychronicon stands first. It came from a dealer 

who described it as the best of the six known perfect copies. 
Wynkyn de Worde is represented by the Vitas Patrum and 
The Seven Penitential Psalms. The rare and beautiful first 
English edition of The Ship of Fools is an example of Richard 
Pynson's skill, and Arnold's Chronicle of London, printed by 
Peter Treveris, compares favorably with it. Among the works 
of Shakespeare are to be found six of the Quarto editions, the 
four Folios, the Poems, and a copy of the Venus and Adonis of 
which only one other copy is known, and that, being in the 
British Museum, is beyond the reach of the coUe^or. There are 
also First Editions of Shirley, Massinger, Teele, Daniel, Ben 
Jonson, Milton, Burns, Keats, and Shelley. The last named 
volume has a personal feature of the greatest interest, which 
is not mentioned in the Catalogue. It is a presentation copy 
from Shelley to Mary WoUstonecraft Godwin, and contains 
more than a page of her writing, in which she inscribes her 
admiration and love of Shelley. 

Among the French books are included the illustrated works 
which were published in the latter part of the eighteenth century, 
and which are remarkable for grace of design and perfe^ion 
of execution. When the drawings of Eisen, Moreau, Monnet, 
Denon, Lebarbier, and others, were skillfully engraved on copper, 
then printed on fine paper, and the whole bound with that taste 
for which the French binders are proverbial, the result was a 
book which for artistic beauty has never been excelled. It is not 
improper to say that I have exercised fastidious care in the 
sele&ion of these volumes, and that they are in the finest possible 

The study of Early Printed Books took me naturally to 
Manuscripts, and while I have not made any efforts to collet 
a great number, I have tried to secure representative examples 
of the English, French, and Italian schools. The Pembroke 

Book of Hours is not surpassed, probably, by any manuscript of 
English execution in any private coUe&ion in the world. The 
smaller manuscripts, while less important, are equally interest- 
ing as ^ecimens of the skill ofmediceval scribes and illumina- 
tors. It is instrudive to compare the French examples with 
the Books of Hours printed at Paris about the beginning of the 
sixteenth century. In some cases, only a careful examination 
will enable one to detect the differences between the written and 
the printed volumes. 

Mingled with the rarities above described will be found a 
goodly number of essays, histories, books of poetry, and works 
on political economy. IVithout laying claim to much know- 
ledge I can say truthfully that my acquaintance with my books 
has not been confined to their exteriors or to their typographical 
peculiarities. They have comforted me after many a weary day, 
and have stood often in the place of friends. I can hope nothing 
better for them and for their future owners than that they may 
receive as watchful care and give as much pleasure as while in 
my possession.

nor sticks at any cost, to become the possessor of most of those impressions which are distin-

begins thus : 

Tabula cartarum fecundum ordinem ponendarum

This identical copy, which was formerly in the possession of Sir M. M. Sykes, is 
described by Dibdin in the following ecstatic terms ; " How can I omit to mention, with the 
distinction which it merits, the very beautiful, if not matchless, copy of Theodore Gaza's 
Latin vetsxya. ol" Aristotle upon Animals," ol'ihK date of 1476, in foUo, UPON VELLUM, from 
the press of John of Cologne — of which my friend Sir M. M. Sykes is the fortunate pos- 
sessor ! If my memory be not treacherous, this is the most exquisite specimen of an early

"The first arithmetic published, and apparently never seen by Dr. Peacock or by 
Professor De Morgan, who cites it only on the authority of writers on the subject who proba- 
bly had merely heard of its existence. The only bibliographer who appears to have been per- 
sonally acquainted with its existence was Federici, who describes the work in his 'Memorie Tre- 
■vigiane ' (p. 73) and ascribes it to the press of Michiele Manzolo, one of the earliest of Treviso 
printers. As, however, the copy mentioned by Federici has since been lost, stolen, or mislaid, 
subsequent bibliographers have doubted or denied its existence and considered his statement 
as a blunder, more especially as in spite of the most diligent search by Brunet and other 
philobiblists, no copy could be discovered in the Biblioth&que Nationale, British Museum, 
Bodleian, or any other library, pubUc or private." 

The condition of the volume is generally good, with wide margins and untrimmed edges. 
But on some of the pages are manuscript figures which indicate that the boy of four hundred 
years ago "wrestled " with the problems just as his successors have done. It is not possible, 
however, to get a better copy, as this is, so far as known, UNIQUE.

FIRST edition, and of the HIGHEST DEGREE OF RARITY. It begins 
with the Table, which occupies 12 leaves ; then follows the Text on 257 leaves, ending on 

the recto, second column, of the last, with the words DEO GRATIAS. ^l_ Some copies 

are without these last two mysterious words, which are supposed to signify, "_Godt allein die 
Ehre" (To God alone the Honor). There are neither numerals, signatures, catchwords, nor 
prefixes to the chapters. The first page is painted in Flower Scrolls and illuminated, and 
the large Initials at the beginning of each book (22 in number) are finely painted and illumi- 
nated. The present is a fine, large copy, clean and sound, with rough edges, excepting the last 
two leaves, which have been repaired. Size n% x 11 inches. 

Bound in old red morocco, double paneled sides, gilt borders, with comer ornaments. 

%* This edition was printed in the Monastery at Subiaco, and is the M«n/ known produc- 
tion of that Monastic Press. From the exact resemblance of its types to those of the edition of 
Lactantius, executed two years before, in the same Monastery, and firom both these works 
being expressly noticed by Sweynheym and PanNARtz among the earliest of their produc- 
tions (in the list of works prefixed to their edition of De Lyra's Commentary printed in 1472), 
there is every probability to conclude that these artists were the printers of the present work. 
Meerman tells us " he turned over the leaves of this book, in the exquisite Library of the Earl 
of Sunderland, in the year 1759," and agrees with Maittaire in assigning it to the Subla- 
censian Press. (" Orig. Typog." Vol. II. pp. 245-6.) Dibdin describes this splendid volume as 
being "one of those choice specimens of rare ancient printing which a tasteful collector 
rejoices to place in his library." ["Bibl. Spenceriana," Vol. \.p. 170.)

Sm. 4° ; 24 unnumbered leaves, 33 lines to a full page, not including the running title ; with 7 
EXCEEDINGLY CURIOUS WooDCUTS, each occupying half a page, representing 7 boat-loads of 
' ' Female Pools. ' ' Bound in full russia extra, paneled and filleted sides, with large and small comer 
ornaments, gilt edges, by F. Bedford. A beautiful copy of the FIRST EDITION. 


A good account of this pungent satire on " Female Fools " is found in Wright's "History 
of Caricature and Grotesque," etc., Land., 1864, pp. 223-4: "The first cut represents the ship 
carrying Eve alone of the female race, whose folly involved the whole world. The book is 
divided into five chapters, according to the number of the five senses, each sense represented by 
a boat carrying its particular class of foolish women to the great ship of fooUsh women, which 
lies off at anchor. The text consists of a dissertation on the use and abuse of the particular 
sense which forms the substance of the chapter, and it ends with Latin verses, which are given 
as the boatman's celeusma, or boat song."

Large folio. Elegantly bound in heavy grosgr. crimson levant morocco super-extra, richly gilt 
back, filleted sides with comer ornaments, paneled inside with broad morocco borders, richly gilt 
and finely tooled, morocco joints, by Wm. Matthews. UNCUT EDGES. In a sliding case 
lined with chamms skin. 

FIRST EDITION, printed in small Gothic characters in double columns, without marks 
of any land. It contains 373 leaves, which number is correct according to Panzer, Hain, 
and Brunet ; but Dibdin makes the copy he describes in " Biil. Spenceriana " to contain 375 
leaves, evidently trusting to the pencil numbers to which he refers. The Capitals and 
Initials throughout the volume are painted in red and blue. This magnificent volume, which 
is attributed to the press of JO HN GUTENBERG, is regarded as the Fourth Book printed 
with a date ; and its extraordinary rarity and value have been mentioned by most BibUog- 
raphers. Its importance is largely due to the fact that it is the FIRST LEXICON or diction- 
ary ever published. The present copy is an exceedingly fine one; the leaves measure 16x11^ 
inches. It is sound and perfect in every leaf, and nearly as clean as if it had but just been 
issued from the press. The copy in Sir John Thorold's Library, with edges cut and gilt, sold 
in 1884 for ;^400.

The Bible in Latin, with the Prologue of Saint Jerome. THE 

^0£f)tC PfPt: hundreds of illuminaUd capital letters, brilliantly colored 
and decorated, many of them heightened with gold. Two volumes folio. 

MENTZ : Joannes Gutenberg. [1450-1455 ?] 

In the original binding, thick oak boards covered with stamped calf, orna- 
mented brass comers and center-pieces, with bosses ; many leaves with uncut 
edges; measuring ii}4 by 15^ inches on the leaf. Without title pages, 
pagination, or signatures ; 641 leaves printed in double columns, 42 lines to a 
full column / the initials and rubrics in manuscript throughout. The first vol- 
ume contains 324 leaves (of which one is in facsimile) and ends with the 
Psalms s the second has 317 leaves (sixteen in facsimile). 

"The honor of producing the first and, as many think, the most perfect book, is now 
ascribed to Gutenberg alone. Fust not coming in for a share of the credit of the invention until 
after his famous lawsuit in 1455, when the Bible had been finished. We call it, therefore, the 
Gutenberg Bible, and have no sympathy for any French name given to it simply because a 
copy found in a Paris library had the honor of being described by a French bookseller." — H. 
Stevens (in Caxton Celebration Catalogue). 

It was known formerly as the " Mazarin Bible " from the fact that the earliest published 
description of it was based on a copy discovered by De Bure in the Mazarin Library. 

While it is impossible to fix with accuracy the date of the appearance of this first printed 
book, it is generally believed to have been published between 1450 and 1455. That it was not 
later than 1456 is shown by a MS. note which is in the copy in the National Library in Paris 
which states that it was " illuminated, bound and completed on the day of the Assumption of 
the Virgin Mary [Aug. 15], 1456, by Henricus Albrech, alicis Cremer," Vicar of the Collegiate 
Church of St. Stephen at Mayence. 

Some copies, which may be called a SECOND ISSUE, have 40 lines on each of the first eight 
pages, 41 on the ninth, and the rest 42. In the later issue the three red lines at the beginning 
are in type, and not in manuscript as in the 42-Une issue. In the first volume of this copy the 
beginning of the prologue to the Pentateuch (recto of 4th leaf), of the book of Genesis (recto 
of Sth leaf), and the title and finis (Incipit and Explicii) of each of the books, from Genesis to 
Ruth, inclusive, are rubricated in manuscript, not printed. 

The Gutenberg Bible, as Dibdin remarks in his description of Earl Spencer's copy, has 
been "justly praised for the strength and beauty of the paper, the exactness of the register, the 
luster of the ink, and the general splendor and magnitude of the volumes." In Asher's 
announcement, in 1873, the present copy is claimed to be the most beautiful of all known 
copies on paper. " It is not only the tallest and almost uncut copy, but it is of remarkable fresh- 
ness and purity, and though it has never been subjected to washing, is without the least stain. 
One sees by the costliness of Its binding and by the beauty of its painted initials, heightened 
with gold and decorated in arabesques, that it was intended for the library of some prince or 
great nobleman. This exceptional excellence brought it ill-fortune, for some barbarian or 
crazed amateur has taken from it a few leaves, doubtless for the sake of their capital letters." 
By extraordinary good luck some ancient paper was found like that on which the Bible was 
printed, and the missing leaves were reproduced by photolithographic facsimile with such 
success that it is not easy to distinguish them. The copy is so nearly uncut that many of the 
manuscript cues for the rubricator are preserved at the extreme upper margins of the leaves.

On the outer margins can be seen also the holes made by the pins by which the sheets were 
fastened while going through the press. It is, in other words, just as it came from the press 
and the hands of the great Inventor of Printing, and, so far as known, is in this respect 
UNIQUE. The only other copy of this Bible in the United States is in the Lenox Library ; 
that, however, is one of the "forty-line " edition above referred to, and generally regarded as 
later than this. A copy was sold in December, 1884, in London, for ^'3,900. It was much 
smaller than this copy, and was in modern binding. 

The compiler of a catalogue should guard against eulogistic description, but it is difficult to 
restrain one's enthusisism while contemplating these magnificent volumes. Gutenberg may 
have failed in his preliminary trials, but if so, he concealed the fact. So far as we know, he 
worked patiently until his standard was reached, and then gave to the world a work which as 
a first production must always be regarded as the most wonderful triumph of inventive genius 
known to history. Although nearly four and a half centuries have passed since its publication, 
this book still stands preeminent as a specimen of the printer's skill ; and there is no reason to 
believe that the coming centuries will produce anything which will deprive it of the position it 
now holds.

This Translation of the Bible by John Eliot is scarcely inferior in interest to the noble work 
of Gutenberg above described. As an instance of learning, industry, piety and real it is 
unexcelled. The Old World was indebted to Gutenberg for its first printed Bible, and Eliot 
was the first to give it to the New World. Cotton Mather exclaimed, when he saw it, "Behold, 
ye Americans, the greatest honour that ever you were partakers of I This . . . is the only Bible 
that ever was printed in all America, from the very foundation of the World. ' ' Mr. Eliot was the 
pastor of Roxbury, Mass. , when he commenced, at the age of forty-two, the study of the Natick 
dialect, in which this work is printed. He began his task in 1650 and finished it after a labor 
of eight years. The printing of the Old Testament was commenced in 1660 and the work 
was completed in 1663. The printers required a week for each sheet, and there were about a 
hundred and fifty sheets. The names of the Books are retained as in the English versions, and 
such words as were unknown to the Indians are retained with an Indian termination, such as 
cherubim&A, etc. The longest word is, Mark i, 40 : Wutteppesittukqussunnoowehtunkquoh, 
signifying " kneeling down to him." 

This is one of the copies having the Dedication to King Charles, of which, according 
toTbomas{" ffist. of Printing"), Twenty Copies only were printed. It is absolutely perfect 
and in matchless condition. It is so nearly uncut that proof leaves are to be found at every few

This Very Rare and interesting little volume consists of 63 leaves, the first of which is occu- 
pied by the title and the last two by the colophon and an engraving of the Virgin and Child ; 
the remaining 60 bear on either side illustrations of the Old and New Testament, giving always 
two representations of the types to one of the fulfillment. At the top and bottom of the pages 
are descriptive sentences and quotations from the Prophets, engraved in block. An extraor- 
dinary degree of interest attaches to the volume, AS being the only Block-Book Printed 
IN Italy. Didot's copy, sold at his sale in May, 1879, brought xyyofrs.

First Edition. "It is not without good reason that Laire pronounces this jmpression 
to be 'Editio originalis et rarissima.' It has, however, other pretensions to be noticed and 
treasured by the curious ; since it not only presents us with a specimen of a type— rarely used 
by John Zeiner— and one of the earliest books printed at Ulm, butit contains some of themost 
curious and diverting woodcuts in the eariier annals of the arts of printing and engraving. 
There are also very few books, of the same date, which display equal spirit of execution, and

would have been wanting to render this a brilliant, as well as an interesting, production of 
early art."— Dibdin. ("Bibl. Spenceriana," Vol. IV., p. 580 et seq.) 

When perfect it is one of the rarest of the editions of Boccaccio. This is believed to be the 
only perfect copy in the United States.

Black Letter. This handsome volume is commonly known as Queen Elizabeth's 
Prayer-book, in consequence of the large woodcut portrait of the Queen, on the reverse of 
the title, in the attitude of prayer. The work is elegantly printed within ornamental woodcut 
borders, in imitation of the French "Boohs of Hours," and is remarkable as being the only 
English book of the kind. The borders contain scenes from the Old and New Testament, the 
ApocaljTJse, illustrations of the Cardinal Virtues, and the Dance of Death, which last contains 
specimens of the costumes of all ranks in the time of Elizabeth and James i. The author- 
ship of the work is by some attributed to John Foxe, and by others to Richard Day.

Jacques Cartier was the discoverer of the mainland of Canada. He made his first 
voyage up the Gulf of St. Lawrence in the summer of 1534, and in the following year ascended 
the river as far as the present site of Montreal. A third voyage was made in 1540. Few histories 
of early voyages are as rare as those of Cartier's. The original account of the first voyage is 
lost, and the earliest version of it is preserved only in the Collection of Ramusio. From this, 
the present translation was made, which in turn was translated into French and printed at 
Rouen in 1598. Of the account of the second voyage but one copy is known, and that is in the 
British Museum. Of the third voyage no copy of the original French edition is known, but 
it appears in fragmentary form in the collections of Hakluyt and Purchas. This English 
translation of the second voyage is so rare that it was unknown to Herbert, and is not men- 
tioned by Brunet or Graesse. In addition to its rarity it has great intrinsic worth and must 
therefore always be regarded as one of the gems in a collection of Americana. The present 
copy is the only one which has been offered at public sale in this country, and but two others 
are knowm here. This is perfect and in excellent condition.

No feature of the American portion of this collection is more remarkable and rare than this 
series of Champlain's voyages. A similar set has not been offered at public or private sale in 
this country or in Europe in the present generation. The collector is fortunate if he secures 
any one of these volumes in good condition, and the possession of all together may well reward 
the search of a lifetime.

Sm. 4°. Gothic Letter, io leagues, 33 lines on a full page ; without signatures, catch- 
words, and pagination. Bound in brown morocco super-extra, filleted sides with comer ornaments, 
broad inside gold borders, gUt edges, by C. LEWIS. 

This is one of the most valuable books, from a bibliographical point of view, in the present 
collection. It is of the highest degree of rarity. Lord Spencer's copy and this are sup- 
posed to be the only copies in existence. It is also the FIRST WORK issued by Ulric 
Zel with a date, and settles with complete certainty the fact that he exercised the art of 
printing at Cologne as early as the year 1466. The type appears to be new ; the ink jet

tion thai it is THE FIRST BOOK PRINTED AT VENICE, and the FIRST WORK bearing 
the name of John de Spira as printer. The Colophon, which is on the verso of the last leaf, 
is as follows:

interlaced, painted border, heightened with gold, and all the large Initials are richly \l.\.Viia- 
^Kl^\:i in gold and variegated colors. The small Initials are in red and blue. The work begins

fadlTacio oibus : mihi ipfe nunq iatiffacio. Tanta 
enim magnitudo eil tuorum erga me meritorum : 
ut quoniam tu nifi perfecta re de me no congefti : 

This first pagejcontains 38 lines. The Colophon, which appears on the recto 
of the iz^th and last leaf, reads thus :

A large, clean, and truly sumptuous copy of the Second Edition of the Familiar 
Epistles of Cicero printed by John de Spira ; the third and last work ever executed 
by him. It appears from the Colophon that he printed only three hundred copies of each edition 
of the Epistles ; and this second edition is considered to be of equal rarity, if not rarer even 
than the first.

which occupies 3 pages ; the work begins on the recto of the id leaf, top of

This copy belonged to the Duke of Grafton in 1796 and passed at the sale of his books toj 
the Syston Park Library. It is in every way a beautiful volume. The binding is in excellent 
preservation, and the condition of the book itself is all that could be desired. The first page 
has been illuminated by the hand of an Italian artist. It is surrotmded by a brilliant border of 
arabesque pattern, in which is a medallion containing a wonderfully executed head of Cicero. 
The large initial letter "N " is in red and blue and gold. The paper, with wide tpargins, the 
ink, and the general typographical excellence of the work justify the care which has been 
bestowed on the binding and ornamentation by its former illustrious owners.

Gothic Letter. These Rare Tracts are evidently all from one press, and that the 
Press of Ulric Zel at Cologne. Until the discovery of the Opuscula of Chrysostom, 
the last tract in the volume was thought to be Zel's first dated book. This copy is described 
by Meerman in his "Origines Typog." (Vol. I.,/. 58, note i.,) to whom it was shown in 17S9, and 
who also gives a facsimile of the type. These Tracts exhibit probably some of the earliest 
efforts of Ulric Zel in Cologne. Most of them are described in Dibdin's "Bibl, Spenceriana,"

The Philippics, the Orations against Verres, and those in favor of Fonteius and Soscius, are 
omitted in this edition. According to DiBDlN, " a nobler or a lovelier volume never issued from 
the press of an early printer. I am well nigh disposed to call it the chef d' ceuvre of the Val- 
darfer press." The last words, "LODO CARBO," are supposed by Panzer, Tira- 
BOSCHi, and Santander to signify the name of LODOVICUS Carbo, vel KoHL, the editor, 
or corrector of the press, in Valdarfer's office.

our Sovereigns, gave me, where I discovered a great many islands inhabited 
by innumerable people; and of all I have taken possession for their High- 
nesses by proclamation and display of the Royal Standard, without opposition.

Gothic Letter. 

Although this letter contains much the same matter as that addressed to Sanchez, they are 
really two entirely distinct documents, of which the present appears to have been written first. 
Sant Angel was the personal friend of Columbus through whose influence the Queen was induced 
to promote his expedition, after she had declined to grant any assistance. It was not unnatural, 
therefore, that Columbus should have sent this personal letter to his friend before making his 
official report to the Royal Treasurer. This letter, in connection with the following addressed to 
Sanchez, is of the greatest interest and importance as giving the earliest surviving description 
of the New World. These three little volumes, containing the first accounts written by the great 
navigator himself, form, when considered together, a collection of bibliographical treasures 
which no library in the world can rival. Until about twenty-five years ago it was supposed 
that no copy of Columbus's Letter in Spanish was to be found. Then, however, a copy was dis- 
covered in the Ambrosian Library at Milan. The present volume was found in the possession 
of an Italian family only two years ago. It is very much like the Ambrosian copy, but the 
typographical differences are such as to prove that they are separate and different editions. 
Several eminent authorities in England and America have expressed the opinion, based upon 
the correction of errors and other internal evidence, that this is the Editio Princeps, and that 
the Ambrosian was copied from it. About the time of the discovery of this copy, another, in 
Spanish, in folio form, was offered for sale by a dealer in Paris for about $13,000. Such an 
eminent authority as Mr. Harrisse did not hesitate to assert that it was not a genuine early 
edition ; but a London bookseller has recently obtained possession of this latter copy, and 
advertises it at about two-thirds of the former owner's price, or $8000, as being the only and 
original edition. He seems to be quite confident both as to the time and place when and where 
it was printed. Inasmuch as it bears no mark of date or place or printer's name, it is unneces- 
sary to say that positive assertions as to these points cannot be sustained by proof. It is claimed 
that the folio form was the original, as being the usual form of the " broadsides " of the time. 
But it is indisputable that all of the editions of the earliest voyages hitherto known are in quarto 
form. This is true not only of all the Latin and Spanish editions of Columbus's Letter, but of 
Vespucius's Voyages, of Pomponius Mela, of The Cosmographise Introductio, of Varthema, and 
others. Now as the " broadside " or folio form is more easily published, being folded but once,

it is natural to suppose that, if this were the original form, those printers who wished to repro- 
duce the Letter in a popular edition would have repeated it. Furthermore, it is almost certain 
that so^ie one of the eight Latin and Spanish early editions already known would have imitated 
the folio had that been the original form. But as a matter of fact they are all quartos. On the 
other hand, it would be quite natiu-al for a printer who wished to reproduce a popular tract to take 
the easiest and cheapest style, and so he would print the four small leaves on two larger ones, 
folded once. These considerations seem to be natural and logical, but it is not claimed that 
they are conclusive. From the very nature of things the facts must always remain matters of 
conjecture, and dogmatic statements are unjustifiable. Both the folio and the quarto were 
offered to the owner of the latter at about the same price, and the present copy was bought, 
after a careful investigation of the merits of both, in the beUef that it was the earlier edition and 
more desirable in every respect. Nothing has since come to light to change that beUef. The 
weight of evidence indicates that it is a unique and genuine copy of the absolutely 


The volume is perfect, and its condition is all that could be demanded.

Letter from Christopher Colom : to whom our age oweth much : con- 
cerning the Islands of India beyond the Ganges recently discovered. In 
the search of which he was sent under the auspices and at the expense of 
the most invincible Sovereigns of Spain, Ferdinand and Isabella : addressed 
to the most noble lord Gabriel Sanchis, Treasurer of the same most serene 
monarchs : which the noble and learned man Leander de Cosco translated 
from the Spanish idiom into Latin, the third day of the calends of May, 1493. 
The year One of the Pontificate of Alexander VI. 

4° ; bound in vellum. Pour unnumbered leaves, 33 lines to a full fage, printed throughout in 
Gothic Letter. 

Without place, date, or printer's name, but according to Major printed by Stephen Plannci 
at Rome, in 1493. No two authorities agree as to the priority of date of the early editions of 
Columbus's Letter in Latin. Mr. R. H. Major, of the British Museum, is the most recent 
bibliographer who has tried to solve the mystery, and his arguments are so logical and weighty 
that it seems impossible to controvert them. Mr. John Russell Bartlett, himself a high 
authority, agrees with Mr. Major, and places this edition first in his catalogue of the John 
Carter Brown Library. The reasons which influenced his action have caused the compiler 
of this catalogue to follow his example. 

The present is a most beautiful copy in every respect. It is from the Barlow Library.

Harrisse, who, previous to Major, had written the most fully concerning the Letters of 
Columbus, places this edition first. (" Bibliotheca Americana Vetustissima," New York, 1866.) It 
was placed first, also, in the catalogue of the Barlow Library, at the sale of which it fetched 
$2900. It is exceedingly rare. Mr. Bartlett states that but four other copies of this edition 
are known. The present copy is perfect and in brilliant condition, excepting that a name has 
been written in ink on the margin of the first page.

This is the First German Edition of Columbus's first Letter. The present copy has, 
unfortunately, three leaves in facsiinile, but the volume is so exceedingly rare that the owner has 
never had an opportunity to buy another copy, either at public or private sale, and thought him- 
self very fortunate to obtain this.

Mr. Ticknor, in speaking of the adventurers who after Columbus wrote narratives of 
their discoveries, says: "In the foreground of this picturesque group stands, as the most 
brilliantof its figures, Fernando Cortes. . . . Of his works, the most remarkable were, no 
doubt, five long and detailed reports to the Emperor on the affairs of Mexico, the first of 
which, and probably the most curious, dated in 1519, seems to be lost, and the last, belonging 
probably to 1527, exists only in manuscript."

rarity is such that there has been but one opportunity to buy them at public sale in a generation. 
With the exception of the last leaf in the First Edition of the Third Letter, which is one of 
Pilinski's facsimiles, so wonderfully executed that it escaped the notice of the author of Mr. 
Barlow's Catalogue until after the completion of his work, the volumes are perfect and in 
exceptionally fine condition.

Theodor De Bry commenced in IS90 the most costly and extensive series of Voyages 
ever undertaken. His plan contemplated originally the publication of them in English, French, 
German, and Latin. But after the first volume had been issued the plan was modified, and the 
subsequent volumes were published only in Latin and German. After his death the work was 
continued by his widow, his sons, and others. Seventeen years intervened between the publi- 
cation of Parts IX and X of the Great Voyages, and the work was not completed until 1634. In 
this period of forty-four years it was inevitable that with the changes of partners and variations 
of plans there should be more or less confusion of editions. And as a matter of fact a collector 
cannot set for himself a greater task than to gather a complete set of De Bry. Probably that 
goal has never yet been reached, although a few have nearly attained it. The present set is 
the best that the owner has been able to buy in twenty years of collecting. A most careful 
collation justifies the statement that all the Parts are the First Editions in Latin, and that 
they are perfect. But the impropriety of speaking too positively on this point may be reaUzed 
when such a high authority as SOBOLEWSKI says (Brunet.VoI. II. at the end) he is "convinced 
that the two impressions of the first edition are always found mingled, and that it is impossible to 
decide the question of priority." The set includes many additions and variations as hereinafter 
described ; also the General Title and the rare Elenchtts. Its condition is excellent, and it forms 
a fitting supplement to the Voyages of Columbus, Vespucius, Cortes, and Champlain, described 
elsewhere in this Catalogue.

Folio; hound by Chambolle-Duru in green crushed levant morocco extra, gilt tack and edges. 
Many engravings on copper. 

This French version of the first part of the GrANds Voyages of De Bry is the only part 
which was published in French and English. It is of the greatest possible rarity in both 
languages. But one copy of the original English Edition has been sold publicly in this 
country for a score of years, and there has been no public sale of a perfect copy of this French 
translation in that time. This copy is not only perfect, but it is in the most brilliant condition

Folio; boundincalf, with gilt edges. ORIGINAL Edition. 

This copy contains all the plates, explanations, titles, and indexes of the original edition, 
including the map ; all in fine condition. The only changes to be noticed are that, while the 
plate of Adam and Eve with the words Theodore de Bry fe at the bottom of it is usually to be 
found after the Index Omnium Capitum, in the present copy it fronts the title-page. The 
BeneuoU) Lectori!', which generally follows the Adam and Eve engraving, is found here after the 
XXIII. illustration. The other parts are all in the regular order, and the map and plates are 
fine impressions.

London: | Printed for John Hancock, at the first Shop in Popes-Head- 
Alley in I Comhil at the three Bibles, and William Bradley at the three 
Bibles I in the Minories, 1670. 

Sm. 4° ; hound in vellum, without tooling. 

This volume will always command a place in the very front rank of Americana as the First 
Account op New York printed in English. It contains much interesting information 
told in quaint fashion. In giving an account of the fruits natural to the Island the author men- 
tions "Mulberries, Posimons, Grapes great and small, Huckelberries, Cramberries, Plums of 
several sorts, Rosberries and Strawberries, of which last is such abundance in June that the 
Fields and Woods are died red : Which the Countrey-People perceiving, instantly arm them- 
selves with botUes of Wine, Cream and Sugar, and instead of a Coat of Male, every one takes 
a Female upon his Horse behind him, and so rushing violently into the fields, never leave till 
they have disrob'd them of their red colours, and turned them into the old habit." 

As a bibliographical rarity this copy is, in one respect, almost unique : It is believed to be 
the only one in this country which has the printed date. The title-page was printed on such a 
large scale that the date at the bottom of it was uniformly cut off by the binder. The date was 
so rare that GoWANS, the veteran collector and dealer, had not seen a copy with it, and omitted 
it in his reprint of the book. The present copy is perfect and all that could be desired in every 
respect. It has very wide margins and is unusually clean throughout.

" Old Plays will always be read by the curious, if it were only to discover the manners 
and behaviour of several ages and how they altered. For plays are exactly like portraits, 
drawn in the garb and fashion of the time when painted. You see one habit in the time of 
Charles I. ; another quite different from that, both for men and women, in Queen Elizabeth's 
time ; another imder Henry the Eighth different from both, and so backward all various. And 
in the several fashions of behaviour and conversation there is as much mutability as in that 
of clothes."— [Wright's] Historia Histrionica, Lond., 1699.

The foregoing seven volumes form a set of Elliot's works which is as rare as it is beautiful 
and instructive. In connection with Audubon they present an account of American birds so 
complete as almost to render superfluous further works of a similar character. The drawing 
and coloring of the birds is exquisitely true to life, and the letterpress shows a wide and accu- 
rate knowledge of the subject.

Folio; hound in red morocco, gilt edges, by DfeROME. 

The First Edition of this world-renowned book, and in a form befitting its value and 
reputation. To those who have struggled over the cheap and bleared copies which modern 
presses turn out for the use of schools and colleges, this work, with its broad margins, brilliant 
black ink, exquisitely engraved initials, and clearly cut diagrams, must come as a revelation of 
beauty. And even from bibliographers few books have won more enthusiastic praise than 
Ratdolt's Euclid. It is the first book in which mathematical diagrams appeared. This copy 
belonged to the Dufc de la Valifere, and was bought in 1784 by M. WodhuU, who states in a 
note that the mending of the first two leaves was done by Roger Payne. 


Sm. ifo ; hound in old English red morocco, with borders of gold, gilt edges. 

First Edition. Printed in Greek capital letters. It contains the Medea, Hippolytus, 
Alcestis, and Andromache. The text stands high in the estimation of scholars. This is a 
beautiful copy. It has the signatures of two former owners — Dr. Askew and M. Wodhull. 
The latter bought it in 1775 and paid for it then ;^ii SJ. Renouard's copy sold for £jft itfi. 
Neither the date nor place of printing is given, but it is universally admitted to have been 
printed by L. de Alopa, at Florence, about 1496. It is excessively rare.

One vol. sm. 4° ; hound in calf, with arms of DE Thou stamped on the sides. Numerous and 
curious woodcuts illustrating the horrible tortures inflicted on Christian martyrs. 

This volume comes from the collection of the celebrated bibliophile JACQUES AuGUSTE DE 
Thou, the friend of Grolier and one of the most remarkable book collectors of the XVIth Cen- 
tmy. His arms are on the sides, flanked by those of Marie de BRSBANfON-CANY, whom he 
married in 1587. The monogram under the arms is J. A. and M, (Jacques Auguste, Marie), 
and is repeated seven times on the back. Books from this collection are rare. Begun about 
the middle of the XVIth Century, this library was kept by his son, after de Thou's death, and 
passed into the hands of appreciative heirs. In 1789 the Princes de Rohan were compelled 
through heavy losses to dispose of it. The sale of the books began January 12, and lasted 
until May 22, 1789.

" That Gibbon should ever be displaced seems impossible. That wonderful man monopol- 
ized, so to speak, the historical genius and the historical learning of a whole generation, and 
left little, indeed, of either for his contemporaries. He remains the one historian of the eigh- 
teenth century whom modern research has neither set aside nor threatened to set aside. We 
may correct and improve from the stores which have been opened since Gibbon's time ; we 
may write again large parts of his story from other and often truer and more wholesome points 
of view ; but the work of Gibbon as a whole, as the encyclopaedic history of 1300 years, as the 
grandest of historical designs, carried out alike with wonderful power and with wonderful 
accuracy, must ever keep its place. Whatever else is read. Gibbon mttst be read too." — E. A.

•• A remarkable work, but one so scarce as to be hardly known at all, except by name, was pub- 
lished by Glanvil in 1661, with the title, ' The Vanity of Dogmatizing.' A second edition, in 

<Catdiigue of ^oolti9f anb £l^UjGfctq^tjef. 1 19 

1665, considerably altered, is entided ' Scepsis ScienH^a.' This edition has a dedication to 
the Royal Society. The style is eminently spirited and eloquent ; a little too figurative, like 
that of Locke, but less blameably, because Glanvil is rather destroying than building up. No 
one thinks more intrepidly for himself; and it is probable that, even in what seems mere super- 
stition, he had been rather misled by some paradoxical hypothesis of his own ardent genius 
than by slavishly treading in the steps of others. Few books, I think, are more deserving of 
being reprinted than the ' Scepsis Scientifica ' of Glanvil." — Hallam. 

Glanvill's curious prediction of the Electro-Magnetic Telegraph will be found on page 134 : 
"To conferr at the distance of the Indies by Sympathetick conveyances, may be as usual to 
future times, as to us in a /iA<n»7> correspondence." His description of the instrument, and 
the manner of working it, will be found on^. 149-150.

The first printers of France, like those of Italy, were Germans. Two of those named above, 
Gering and Chrantz, printed the first book issued in Paris. Their types were slightly Roman- 
ized, but were much more Gothic in character than those used at the same time in Italy. 

This volume is in very fine condition and is a beautiful specimen of the work of the first 
Parisian printers. It is from the WodhuU Library.

Nothing is calculated to give one a more vivid idea of the rapid and wonderful growth of this 
country than the perusal of these simple accounts of the sufferings of white prisoners at the 
hands of the Indians. It seems incredible that within such a comparatively short time those 
parts of the country which had been settled longest should have been at the mercy of savages. 
But these brief histories tell their tales with a directness which leaves no room for doubt as to 
their trustworthiness.

445 HOMER. — The Entire Works of Homer. Printed in Greek, by Deme- 

trius Cretensis. Two vols, folio. Florence : 1488. 

First Edition. Bound in old red morocco, gilt backs. A very large copy, measuring 13% by 
<ji% inches, quite perfect, with beautifully illuminated capitals throughout (several of which contain 
the arms of a former owner), the margins and fly-leaves enriched with the valuable MS. notes of the 
ABBfe BiGNON, to whom the book was presented by Vincent Francois Jeune, of Marseilles. 

The work commences with two prefaces, one in Latin by Bernardus Nerlius, on the 
recto of the first leaf; the other by Chalcondyles the Editor, in Greek, commencing on the 
verso of the same leaf. The Latin preface ends with these words : 

" Vale. FLORENTIAB Idibus lanuariis. M.CCCC.LXXXVIIi:' 
Then follows the biography of Homer firom Herodotus, succeeded by the preface to Plutarch's 
biography of the poet. The forty-second leaf is blank, and the Iliad begins on the recto of the 
forty-third leaf: IAIAA02 A OMHPOT PATnMAS. 

ending on the verso of the two hundred and sixth leaf as follows: 

TEA02 TH2 O 





The second volume begins with the Odyssey, without preface : 

The Odyssey occupies one hundred and sixty-one leaves, and is followed by the Batracho- 
MTOMACHIA, occupying four leaves. The Hymns begin on the recto of the one hundred and 
sixty-sixth leaf and end with the volume on the verso of the one huudred and eighty-ninth : 



the whole concluding with a colophon of nine lines. 

The foregoing volumes are thus minutely described because they are, as Dibdin justly says, 
" the boast of every classical collection." Bibliographers and scholars have written enthusiasti- 
cally of them for centuries. They charm alike the student and the lover of beautiful typo- 
graphical work. The paper, ink, workmanship, and ornamentation form a fitting shrine for 
the verses of the great poet of antiquity. And the annotations of the Abb^ Bignon have a 
special interest from his wonderful learning and high position. Bom in 1589, he won a great

This treatise terminates on the recto of the 10th and last leaf with the word 

The First Edition of the works of Horace. This copy is from the Syston Park Collec- 
tion and contains the following note by the former owner : " One of the most valuable books 
printed in the fifteenth century. See Gesner's remarks in his Preludia on this edition. They 
prove, in his opinion, that the edition was formed only from one manuscript, which the printers 
implicitly followed, and from this singular circumstance he judiciously infers that the good 
readings which occur in it may be depended upon as proceeding ab antiguo codice non at ingenio 
correctoris. ... It is the only ancient edition which contains the celebrated reading of pretium 
mentis for per vim mentis, in verse 140, Epist. 2, Liber 2. The present copy, with the excep- 
tion of Lord Spencer's, is the finest in the country and far superior to Mr. Grenvllle's and to the 
copies in the Bodleian and Melzi collection, which were both in our possession. Mr. Hibbert 
purchased this copy of Constantine Jennings, who valued it at Two Hundred Pounds."

8° ; elegantly printed in red and black within ornamental woodcut borders, on 103 leaves of pure 
vellum, with 19 fallpage woodcuts, and 34 of miniature siise, all the capitals rubricated and gilt , 
vellum wrapper, in wrinkled brown morocco case. 

This is an unusually beautiful and interesting specimen of the Parisian Horse, being in con- 
temporaneous binding and with all the engravings free from color. To find a copy in such 
perfect condition is a great rarity, inasmuch as the majority of the books of this class were 
colored by hand so as to make them resemble, as closely as possible, the manuscript missals of 
the time. Where this work was performed by skillfiil artists it added to the brilliant appearance 
of the volume. But as a rule the colorists were inferior, at this period, to the engravers, and 
the strong, spirited woodcuts, in their original state, will always present superior attractions 
to book-lovers.

Large 8° ; hound in old crimson morocco, sides filleted, gilt edges, silver clasps. 

This is not only the finest Book of Hours, printed on vellum, in the present collection, but 
it would be difficult to equal it anywhere. Only two other copies are recorded : one in the 
Didot collection, the other in the hbrary of St. G^nevi^ve in Paris. Both of these, however, lack 
the last fourteen leaves, which are to be found in this copy. The vellum is especially good, the 
printing unusual in its excellence, and the coloring is worthy of a miniaturist of the first class;; 
The Dance of Death, hunting scenes, and quaint conventional figures compose the borders. The^ 
whole volume, in short, shows the greatest care and skill on the part both of the printer and 
the artist. 

It has the Calendar from 1508 to 1528.

This is in many respects the most beautiful printed Book of Hours in the collection. The 
designs are by Geofroy Tory, and are in his best style. Every page is surrounded by a 
border, and there are thirteen full-page engravings. All of the capitals are printed in red. In 
addition to this, the binding is an exceptionally fine and perfect example of contemporaneous 
workmanship. The book as a vrhole makes a bibliographical treasure such as any collector 
counts himself happy to possess. 

The whole inclosed in a morocco case, lined with velvet.

This is a brilliant and faithfiil reproduction of an exquisite book. No manuscript in the world 
surpasses the famous Hours of Anne of Brittany in brilliancy of coloring, accuracy of drawing, 
or beauty of design. The borders represent flowers taken from the garden of the Queen, and 
the Scriptural scenes are depicted with marvelous dexterity. Although this book was published 
nearly fifty years ago it cannot be excelled to-day as an example of skillful chromo-lithographic 

There is also a volume of descriptive text. Both volumes are inclosed in a case lined with 
quilted silk.

This was supposed until recently to be the first book printed in Boston. The map which it 
contains is the first one engraved in New England. The present copy is perfect and has the 
genuine map in fine condition. It is so rare in this state that while Mr. Brinley had several 
copies not one of them was perfect. 

The author was especially qualified to act as the historian of the thrilling experiences he 
describes. His account of them is graphic and comparatively free from the mannerisms and 
prejudices which mar the writings of some of his contemporaries. Such volumes are the foun- 
dation of our knowledge of these stirring times, and their value both to the student and the 
amateur must continually increase.

gallicus: hoc nfa tepestate impssor. priceps ; Qd' qdeop' ipressu in floretissima 
urbe uenetiar. est. 1478. 

2 vols, in I, folio; PRINTED ON VELLUM, with exquisite borders, historiated initials, and 
numerous capital letters all beautifully illuminated in gold and colors, with the arms of a Cardinal in 
the lower margin; from the Beckford library, Hamilton Palace. Old French red morocco extra, leather 
joints, silk linings, gUt edges, lettered " Manuscri." 

This, as an artistic monument, is equal to a fine illuminated MS. The borders and figures 
and painted ornaments are extremely elegant, and include some work in fine camaieu-rouge. 
Among the animal figures there is one of an elephant, and another of a bear walking off with a 
man and his spear over his shoulder. There are MS. additions, evidently made for the Cardinal, 
on the blank leaves of the book to supply certain offices not included in the original impression. 

This Breviary on vellum is not excelled by any of the magnificent productions of Jenson's 
press. The iUiuninations give it the appearance of one of the grand old Manuscript Breviaries. 
The binder was evidendy deceived by the resemblance when he stamped " Manuscri " on the 
back of the volume.

Printed on vellum, ruled throughout in red, and ornamented with borders, ONE HUNDRED 
AND FOKTY-THREE miniatiu-es, and numerous capital letters, richly illuminated in gold, silver,

Only one other copy is known on vellum, namely, that in the National Library in Paris, and 
this, which equals it in condition and beauty, is mentioned by Van Praet as formerly in the 
library of the Mar^chal de Richelieu. It can be called properly a grand work, measuring 
sixteen by eleven inches, and is unexcelled in importance as-a specimen of early Parisian print- 
ing. The blank comers of some of the leaves are mended ; otherwise the volume is in perfect 
condition. From the Syston Park Library.

SuBiACo: 1465. 

Folio ; bound in red morocco extra, sides and back richly gilt, gilt edges. From the Beckford 

This volume commands attention as the First Edition of the first known book 
PRINTED in Italy. It marks the beginning, therefore, of an era in the history of typography 
second in importance only to that begun by the printing of the Gutenberg Bible. Taken all in 
all, the work of the Italian printers stands unequaled, and is likely to remain so. 

Two of Fust's workmen, Conrad Sweynheym and Arnold Pannartz, settled at the Mon- 
astery of Subiaco, thirteen miles from Rome, and published this Lactantius in 1465. It is 
printed with characters not before used in the printing press, and much like those found in the 
Italian manuscripts of the period. Unlike the angular Gothic types, they were rounded in form, 
and were the remote parents of those modem types which are to this day known among 

Catdosuc of ^taik^ anb lat^nuje^mjpt^. 165 

printers as Roman. Here are found also the first passages of Greek printed with movable 
types. It is an extremely regular and fine piece of printing, especially remarkable as a first 
attempt in a new and foreign locality. It is illuminated throughout by hand, and has many 
capital letters heightened by gold leaf laid on after the manner of ancient manuscripts. It con- 
tains the Table and Errata, and is perfect in every respect. 

This is a marked instance of the pains taken by the early printers to select notable books 
for reproduction. Lactantius wrote in the early part of the fourth century, and ft'om the relig- 
ious character of his works and the finished elegance of his style he has been called the 
" Christian Cicero."

This book is most valuable for the particulars it contains of the cruelties committed by the 
Spaniards in Peru, Mexico, and adjacent kingdoms of South America, from the year 1493, 
when the Spaniards &st commenced to inhabit the continent, almost to the date of the present 
volume — cruelties carried on for such a length of time and with a pertinacity so remarkable as 
to call forth even in those times a remonstrance against such inhuman barbarity. It is exces- 
sively RARE.

All bibliographers agree in the opinion that this is one of the Rarest Books in existence. 
In the preface to the Aldine edition of 1494-9 C^^ first book printed at the celebrated Aldine 
press) it is stated that, even at that time, " NO COPIES of this edition could be pro- 
cured, AFTER THE MOST DILIGENT SEARCH." The famous Greek scholar. Dr. Charles 
Bumey, considered it " the most rare and valuable book in his collection." After the Doctor's 
death it was estimated at ;^6oo, and purchased at this sum by the authorities of the British 
Museum. Before the printing of this book, vacant spaces were usually left in books for the 
insertion of the Greek passages with a pen. Demetrius Cretensis, so called from being a 
native of Crete, was of very important service in the editing of the first Greek books. Besides this 
First Edition of Lascaeis, he assisted Demetrius Chalcondylas in the Editio Princeps 
of Homer, published at Florence, 1488. He was afterwards employed by Cardinal Ximines 
on the Complutensian Polyglot. The preface of Demetrius to this First Greek book is exceed- 
ingly curious, and is addressed " Jngenuis fiuditffifimis adole/cetibus." The type is of a medium 
size, resembling the manuscripts of those days, and has been followed in the first .lEsoP, the 
6x&t Lexicon of Johannes Crastonus, and the Florentine Homer of 1488.

Sir Waiiam Talbot thinks " it is clear from this book, that the long-looked-for discovery of 
the Indian Sea does nearly approach ; and that Carolina presumes that the accomplishment 
of this glorious designe is reserved for her." Lederer, who was a German, traveled far into the 
interior of Virginia, and imagined that he had nearly reached the shores of the great South 
Sea. He made himself obnoxious to the people of Virginia, and sought refiige in Maryland, 
where he was well received by Sir William Talbot, who, " finding him a modest and ingeni- 
ous person and a pretty scholar," says, "I thought it common Justice to give him an occasion 
of vindicating himself from what I had heard of him ; which truly he did with so convincing 
reason and circumstance, as quite abolished those former impressions in me, and made me 
desire this account of his travels, which here you have faithfully rendered out of Latine from 
his owne writings, with an entire map of the Territory he traversed." — Preface.

" This inestimable book, a treasure of all the learning respecting the East and West Indies 
and the navigation thither at the end of the sixteenth century, has been in the highest esteem 
for nearly a century, and was given to- each ship sailing to India, as a log-book. Hence the 
many editions (6 in Dutch, 3 in French, and i in Latin), which is also the cause yihyfine copies, 
especially with all the plates and maps, are so very rare. The description of America occupies 
pages 16 to 82 of the third part." — F. MuLLER. 

From the Barlow Collection. It is a singularly beautiful copy of a book which is rare in any 
condition, and which is almost never found with all the maps in good ordej. The entire title- 
page is engraved, and is especially interesting as the work of William Rogers, the first English 
engraver. The present is a perfect and brilliant impression of the plate.

619 ^tftlia ^asx&t cum ^^rologo ^, i^teronpmt. manuscript on the 

finest Vellum, of the thirteenth century, of English execution. Beautifully 
written in a minute but very clear ^Otf)tC hand, in double columns, on 639 
leaves. 139 illuminated initial letters, 88 of which contain delicately executed 
miniatures. The other initial letters in red and blue, with very numerous 
narrow ornaments in same colors running down the outer margin of text 
or between the colunms. On the eighth page is an illuminated ornament 
containing eight miniatures, filling the entire space between the columns 
and part of tlie upper and lower margins. 

Thick 12° ; calf, gilt tack, sides inlaid, with gilt tooling, gilt edges. 

This volvime, like the preceding, contains the whole Bible, and is a wonderful specimen of 
the patience and skill shown by the mediaeval monks. The fineness of the vellum would seem 
to make impossible such diminutive chirography. But the letters are formed with the greatest 
precision and, in spite of the lapse of centuries, are still in perfect preservation. 

620 CHANSONS ET MOTETS. Consisting of three hundred and nine- 
ty-six pages, of which the larger portion have the words and score written 
out in French and Latin j table of contents at beginning, with the composers' 
names written at the head in various colors, full-page letter ** 25 executed 
in blue and olive interlaced scroll-work, also eleven large capitals of the 
same character in black, red, blue, olive, and yellow inks, with one hundred 
and four initials somewhat smaller, and many other initials yet smaller. 

Oblong minimo, measuring $% by 7^ inches, in the original French binding, richly tooled, gauf- 
fered edges. SjEC. XVI. 

Unique, original, and royal MANUSCRIPT in sumptuous binding. This num- 
ber consists of a volume of a collection of " Chansons et Motets" which was arranged for five, 
six, and eight voices in Latin, French, Italian, and Dutch, with the music. It is written on 
paper, and was executed for Henry II. of France and Diana of Poitiers. 

The date, 1552, is inserted in a large ornamental capital at folio 145. 

This volume, from the fineness of the design of its binding and the interest of its original 
ownership, is one of the most important examples of its kind that has ever been offered for 
sale. It brought at the sale of M. L&pold Double in 1863 five thousand two hundred and 
fifty francs. In addition to its acquired historical interest, the book is of considerable importance 
in itself in regard to the history of music, on account of its table of contents, which gives the 
names of various French composers of the sixteenth century, among whom will be found: 
Phil, de Wildre, Cresquillon, Ch. Chastelain, Ciprian de Rose, and Anthoine Gaily. 

The heraldic ".ex libris" of the celebrated bibliophile, M. Double, will be found on the 
front inside cover, where are the following MS. notes in his handwriting: " Voirla date de 1552, 
page 145, p. 97, hymne par Charles VIII., p. 75, 77, 82, 186 Clement Marot. p. 172, Diane d. 
Henri II., p. 187, Franfois I." 

The marvelously beautiful and original French binding, of a semi-Maioli, semi-Grolier 
style, was doubtless designed for King Henry II. by " Le Petit Bernard." The sides and back 
are painted and inlaid in colored enamels and leathers. Both sides are covered with green 
floriated, conventional Gothic ornaments and an intersecting design in black and white, the 
parallel lines of which are pointilU in the centers. The middle of the fore side has a large 
heraldic and allegorical design of circular shape, in the center of which is a shield of the royal 
arms of France, above which is a regal crown. Depending from the upper portion of the shield 
are a collar of "SS" and cockle-shells, fi-om which also hangs the jewel of the Order of St. 
Louis. Amid si\\er pointillS ornamentations are the monogram "H. D." interlaced, three 
silver half-moons, a large crescent silver moon, allusive to the chaste goddess Diana, and the 

1 84 Catalogue of ^tioW anb !S)[^ujera:^ti$. 

king's initial " H " twice repeated. On the other side, in the middle of a circle and upon a 
square scroll, is the word " Bassvs." The back is enameled in black and white, and tooled in 
gilt. The design is lozenge-shaped, chequered. The edges are as fine a specimen of gauffered 
work as can be found. It is a floriated and interlaced design, pointilU throughout. 

This binding is reproduced in Joseph Cundall's " BookHtidings, Ancient and Modem." It 
is there styled "Recueils de Chansons et Motetts, with the Arms and Monograms of Henry II. 
and Diana of Poitiers. Binding of the Middle of the XVI. Century," and is presented in 
that authority as a representative example of a "Diane de Poitiers reliure." The eminent 
bibliopegist writes: "Diank of Poitiers, the mistress of Henry II. of France, devoted much 
attention to the binding of her books ; perhaps those executed for her are the finest speci- 
mens ever produced ; probably they were designed by ' Le Petit Bernard ' (Bemhard Salomon 
of Lyons), who also made drawings for her jewels. They were usually engraved with a 
bow and crescent, sometimes with an arrow rising from a tomb with the motto ' Sola mint 
in. illo.' On the love offerings from the king an 'H' is worked in with a crown and fleur- 
de-lis. The practice of inscribing mottos on books was very usual. There is a beautiful book 
mentioned in Dibdin's 'Decameron,' which was published by Aldus. It is bound in fine Italian 
olive binding, with the device of a serpent entwining a ring and a motto, ' Scilicet es superis labor 
■ est.' On many of Henry's own books are stamped and interwoven the initials ' H ' and ' D ' of 
. his own and mistress's names, with crescents, bows, quivers, and other symbols of the chase 
appropriate to a lady besiring the name of Diana. (Many of the ornaments on the pottery 
of Oiron known as Faience de Henri II. were evidently stamped with bookbinder's tools.) On 
some of his books the ' H ' is interwoven with a ' C," and in this case the latter initial is that of 
his vrife, Catherine de Medicis." 


Mass, etc., on Vellum, illuminated in gold and colors, rubricated, and with 
the score of the music. The tide-page with border in gold and colors, 
eighteen illuminated large initial letters, and numerous smaller capitals. 
The work is attributed to the fourteenth century. 

Thick small 4° ; original leather binding, on wooden boards, with eight triform brass ornaments 
with bosses on the sides, also brass comers. 

Examples of chant books of this size WITH THE MUSICAL SCORE are excessively rare. 

The above consists of 265 leaves, or 530 pages, of which a few are stained and one or two 
slightly mended. It is a splendid example both of early binding and of paleography. 

622 CICERO.

in gold on red or green background.

TATIS. MANUSCRIPT on fine Vellum, executed in the second half of 
the fifteenth century. 117 leaves, of which the title-page is very chaste, 
with miniature in gold and colors, borders with cherubs, etc., etc., also 54 
fine gold and colored capitals with arabesque ornaments. S^c. XV. 

4° (10 J^ X 8|i inches) ; limp vellum binding. 

This UNIQUE MANUSCRIPT was formerly in the collection of Cardinal Salviati. It 
is a most interesting example of fifteenth century Italian work, and is in fine condition except 
that the inner border of the title is mended and the first two leaves are slightly stained. 

St. Jerome, known also in biography as " Eusebius Hieronymus Sophronius," was born on 
the confines of Dalmatia, circa 331-345. He retired to the desert of Chalcis in 374, and 
became a priest at Antioch four years later. For three years afterward he lived at Constantinople 
in close intimacy with Gregory Nazianzus. In 382 St. Jerome came to Rome and acted as the 
secretary of Pope Damasius, engaging in his great work of biblical revision. He was celebrated 
chiefly for his Pelagian controversies, and died on September 30 in the year 420. Erasmus 
edited his works. St. Jerome is ' ■ universally regarded as the most learned and eloquent of 
the Latin Fathers."

parison with any similar manuscript in existence.

634 HORiE PEMBROCHIANiE.— An Illuminated MANUSCRIPT of the 
Hours of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Written for William Herbert, 
First Earl of Pembroke, about 1440, and eraiched with 267 miniatures, besides 
hundreds of capital letters in gold and colors, the whole written on 195 
leaves of Vellum. 

Folio; bound in boards covered with red velvet, silver clasps and bosses engraved with scriptural 
scenes after the manner of the Italian niello work. 

The volume really consists of three parts. At the beginning are inserted twenty leaves of 
vellum, on the first of which is emblazoned the coat-of-arms of William Herbert, Earl of 
Pembroke. On the following leaf is a full-length portrait of the Earl, clad in silver armor. 

1 88 Catalogue of ^oo{i$e anti 0^amiisecn^$(« 

kneeling at a frie-dieu before an altar. The fifteen additional leaves bound up at the end of the 
volume contain prayers in English, written in a bold Gothic character of the sixteenth century. 
These prayers were written by Queen Catherine Parr, whose sister was the first wife of 
William Herbert, Earl of Pembroke, and who may have written them specially for the use 
of her brother-in-law, the Earl. The margins of the Calendar contain many interesting entries, 
from which it is evident that the owner was a stout adherent of the Yorkists, as all the battles 
chronicled there are Lancastrian defeats. This would agree well with the ownership of the Earl 
of Pembroke, who was a devoted adherent of the cause of the Duke of York, and who was 
beheaded by the Lancastrians on the day following his defeat at Banbury in 1469. The Rose 
of York is prominent in the decoration. 

It is impossible to do justice to the merits of this volume by a verbal description. In the 
opinion of the most competent living authorities on such matters the whole work was executed 
in England. This adds greatly to its importance and value, owing to the rarity of English 
manuscripts of this period. The chirography is most exact, the ink is lustrous, the drawing of 
the miniatures is unusually correct, and the colors are of exceptional brilliancy. Its condition, 
moreover, is faultless. The binding alone has artistic merit sufficient to give the volume a 
high standing. Taken all in all, it is unquestionably the most beautiful and important manu- 
script of English execution outside oi the British Museum, It ranks in the same class with the 
Bedford and Grimani Missals and the Hours op Anne of Brittany. In beauty of work- 
manship, and in fact in everything except historical associations, it far excels the Missal of 
Charles VI. which sold for 76,000 francs ^t the sale of the Didot Collection. 

It is remarkable both for breadth of design and minuteness of finish. The large full-page 
painting on fol. 131 is of most admirable execution. It gives a conventional view of the city 
of Jerusalem, and portrays three great events in the Passion of our Lord. In the center we see, 
in a sort of open alcove, with steps leading up to it, Christ blindfolded and buffetted, the 
figures of his eight tormentors being drawn with great skill. On the right, in another chamber 
open to the street, is seen Pilate washing his hands ; six attendants stand around, and in the 
street are four other spectators, who look into the hall with an anxious expression that is 
depicted with marvelous skill. At the top of the page, on the greensward of a hill above the 
buildings, we see the Crucifixion ; a group of six figures stand around the cross, two of them 
being on horseback, and on the left St. John supports the Blessed Virgin, who is fainting. 
A soldier pierces our Lord in the left side vrith a spear. In the distance is indicated a com- 
pany of armed men. The whole is surrounded by a border composed of flowers and conven- 
tional figures. 

63s HYMN AND LITANIES.— Hymne Nouvelle i I'honneur de

USCRIPT on Vellum, 32 pages, exquisitely written and illuminated. The 
manner in which the gold letters are formed is worthy of the best illuminators 
of the fifteenth century. They stand distinctly above the page, and are re- 
markably brilliant. The volume possesses great interest from the fact that 
it was made specially for, and was dedicated to, Louis XIV., and belonged 
to his library. It is perfect and in beautiful condition.

... I will challenge the minutest examination," etc.

The First Edition. The estimation in which Peter Martyr was held as an historian is 
shown by the fact that in a period of a hundred years his works were published in Spain, Italy, 
France, and England. An Italian by birth, he went in 1487 to the Court of Ferdinand and 
Isabella. He served in their armies during two campaigns, was ordained a priest afterward, 
and became tutor to their children. He was at one time an Ambassador, and later on a Privy 
Counsellor. Few men have had a wider range of occupation and experience. Soldier, school- 
master, ambassador, statesman, priest, historian, and a gossiping man of letters, he touched 
htunanity at nearly every point. He delighted in the society of great men and was on the most 
frank and intimate terms with them. To use an expression of his own, he fed with his learning 
the studious youth of Spain. He was the contemporary of Columbus and Vespucius, and was 
the first to publish a popular account of the results of their voyages and of the peculiarities 
of the natives of the New World. This, the first of his historical writings, contains only the 
first decade, which was republished, together with the second and third, at Alcala, in 1516. 
Its importance is equaled by its rarity. Harrisse cites but one copy in this country. This copy 
is from the Barlow Collection, and is the only one which has been offered at public sale in a 
generation. It is deserving, in every respect, of the regard of scholars and bibliophiles. As 
the colophon states, it was printed "with the greatest care." It contains the chart which is 
usually wanting, and which is remarkably correct for the period. Nothing equal to it appeared 
for a long time after. The volume is bound in a manner worthy of its contents, and it heads 
fittingly a list of Martyr's works which is equaled only by one other private collection in this 
country — that of John Carter Brown of Providence.

" This edition of the first three Decades of Peter Martyr is little known even to the most 
diligent bibliographers. Brunei mentions an edition of Madrid, 1516, as being noticed in the 
catalogue of the College of Clermont, which is probably the same book as this, the dedication 
of Charles V. being dated from Madrid, October, isi6."— BUliotheca GremiilliaTta. 

This copy is complete, although it does not contain the sixteen folios of the " Legationis 
Babylonicae " mentioned by Brunet as being bound with the Grenville copy. That they are 
not an essential part of the book as originally published is shown by the " Finis " at the end of 
the Third Decade and by the " Errata." The volume is exceedingly rare. Harrisse knew of 
but two copies in this country. 3

The First Edition of the Eight Decades. This volume ranks next in interest, value, 
and rarity to the edition of 1511. It is admirably printed in Roman type, with engraved capi- 
tals. Sometimes a map has been found at the end, but there is no reason to believe that it 
appeared in the work as originally issued. Brunei makes no mention of it. The map referred 
to is the same as that in the Solinus Camers of 1520, with the date changed to 1530. It has 
some words in Dutch which indicate that it was not intended for publication with this book. The 
present copy is perfect and in unexceptionable condition. It is excessively rare. Neither Field, 
Menzies, Brinley, nor Barlow had a copy, and that in the Murphy Collection was not perfect.

the rarity of the volume, Mr. J. H. Trumbull writes in that catalog^ue as follows : " No epithet 
can be too strong to characterize the scarcity of the one introuvable which so long escaped the 
search of American collectors ; so rare, that Prince did not secure it for his New England 
Library, though he could pick up half a dozen Bay Psalm Books ; so rare that S. G. Drake, 
the most indefatigable and successful of collectors, could not find it for his reprint, in 1862, 
and was obliged t6 copy even his title-page from the Ijmdon edition ; and so rare that MfT 
Sabin himself, when noting the fact (in the Menzies Catalogue) that ' the New England edi- • 
tion is not mentioned by Lowndes, nor elsewhere, so far as we have been able to ascertain,' 
makes the reluctant admission that ' perhaps no copy of it exists." "

could expect to Bnd of such a rare book. As this volume is handsomely bound by Bedford 
it has not seemed wise to mutilate it by extracting the title-page. It does not contain 
the " Exhortation."

The First Edition. 

This is the FIRST WORK BY Milton which appeared in print. It is exceedingly rare, 
especially when, like this copy, it is in perfect condition. It has never been offered at public 
sale in this country, and last sold publicly in England in 1881 for £6S.

Sm. 4° ; bound in dark blue morouo extra, delicately gilt on sides and tack, gilt edges, by BED- 
FORD. The First Edition. 

This volume is divided into two parts. The first contains an account of King in Latin 
printed in capitals, supposed by some to have been written by Milton, and Latin and Greek 
• tributes. The second part contains the English tributes, and is separated from the first by a 
distinct title surrounded by heavy black borders: "Obsequies to | the memorie | of | Mr. 
Edward | King, | Anno Dom. | 1638. | Printed by Th. Buck and R. Daniel, | printers to the 
Universitie of | Cambridge. 1638. 

"Lyddas" comes last in order, and fittingly crowns this remarkable collection of elegies. 
It is not signed in fiill, but bears the initials of Milton. It is the first edition of this celebrated 
composition, and is extremely rare. A copy brought at Sotheby's, in 1881, ;^68. It is believed 
that no copy has since been offered at public sale. 

This copy is complete in every way, and is in absolutely perfect condition.

722 MOURT (G.) — A Relation or Iournall of the beginning and pro-

English Planters there resident. I. In a ioumey to Pvckanokick the habita- 
tion of the Indians greatest King Massasoyt: as also their message, the 
answer and entertainment they had of him. II. In a voyage made by ten 
of them to the Kingdome of Nawset, to seeke a boy that had lost himselfe 
in the woods : with such accidents as befell them in that voyage. III. In

King Massasoyt, against the Narrohiggonsets, and to reuenge the supposed 
death of their Interpreter Tisquantum. IIII. Their voyage to the Massa-

Mourt's "Relation" is another of those books usually catalogued as "the chief corner- 
stone " of a library of Americana, and as it is one of the earliest accounts of New England 
history it is not easy to overestimate its importance. But its value is not greater than the 
difficulty of procuring the book in good condition. It was evidently very popular at the time 
of its publication, and received careless usage. Not one thoroughly good copy has been 
offered for sale here, either at auction or by dealers, for twenty years. The present is an 
unusually clean copy, but the top of the title-page has been cut so close as to eliminate the 
initial "A."

"Thomas Murner, a learned Minorite friar of the order of St. Francis who flourished at 
the commencement of the sixteenth century, and being engaged in teaching philosophy, first 
at Cracovia, and afterwards at Friburg, perceived that his young pupils were disgusted with 
the formalities of a treatise of Logic which was placed in their hands to teach them the terms 
of dialectic science. He imagined a new method of exciting their attention by composing one 
himself, in the manner of a Game at Cards, which, in the form of a pleasing recreation, engaged 
them to pursue the subject, and insensibly surmount the difficulties of this dry and repulsive 
study. So successful were his endeavours, that the extraordinary and rapid progress of his 
scholars caused him at first to be suspected as a magician ; and, to justify himself, he was 
obliged to produce his new invented game, and demonstrate to the rectors of the University 
the means by which such wonders were effected, who not only highly approved, but applauded 
his invention, and admired it, as something more than human. This game, according to Menes- 
trier, was composed of 52 cards on which were depicted Bells, Crabs, Fish, Acorns, Scorpions, 
Turbans, Hearts, Swallows, Suns, Stars, Pigeons, Crescents, Cats, Shields, Crowns, and Ser- 
pents ; but in what manner these objects were applied to the inculcation of logical rules and 
dialectic terms, we shall not attempt to describe. The success and popularity of this book 
gave rise at a future period to numerous applications of Cards for purposes of instruction ; that 
Mumer's attempt was the model upon which all subsequent ones were founded, cannot be 
doubted, and the number of games which were published in the commencement of the seven- 
teenth century is astonishing. We have seen the attempt renewed in our own times, and there 
is scarcely a branch of juvenile education which has not been thus treated." — Marchand, 
"Diet, ffistorigue," art. Murner. Singer, "Researches into the History of Playing Cards," 
pp. 216-17.

This is the First Edition of this book, which has held for centuries a prominent place in 
classical hterature. Aside from its hterary merit, the present copy has an especial charm for the 
lover of excellent typography. The paper is an imusuaUy good specimen of the work of the 
fifteenth century, and is as fresh and free from stain as if it had been made within a few years. 
The ink is lustrous, the registry perfect, and the margins wide. The capital letters are, as 
usual, painted by hand. But the most attractive feature of the book is, perhaps, the first page. 
This has been illuminated most beautifiilly in water-color, by an Italian artist. At the bottom 
of the page is a spirited picture of a battle between ancient galleys propelled by oars. This, 
like the remainder of the book, is in perfect preservation. 

From the Ubraries of Sir M. Sykes and M. WodhuU.

The First Edition of Oviedo's " General and Natural History of the Indies," printed at 
Seville in IS3S- Oviedo lived on this continent upwards of thirty-four years, and crossed the 
Atlantic not less than twelve times, chiefly on missions to lay the grievances of the colonies, or 
his own, before the Spanish Court. He was Governor of the Province of C^rthagena, and 
filled other high positions. His intimate personal knowledge of men and events makes his 
history interesting and of the greatest importance. This volume is complete in itself, although 
it comprises only the first part of the history, which was continued subsequently. The present 
copy is perfect, and is in fine condition, excepting that a few leaves have been mended. The 
work is, however, excessively rare in any state.

The First Edition. It is the first book in which numbers instead of letters were used to 
designate signatures. Another variation from custom is found in the numbering of the pages. 
All of the figures are printed on the right of the page, making the even numbers come close to 
tlie inside margin while the odd numbers are on the outside. This copy is perfect and in 
excellent condition.

ductions of the Aldine press. It was dedicated by Aldus and Musurus to Leo X., who was so

Exscripsitq ; libros §re notante meos.

Nanq ; labor studio cessit : & ingenio. 


Polio ; bound in old French citron morocco, borders of gold, gilt edges. 

Of this, tlie First Edition of Pliny's Natural History, Dibdin writes : " There are few 
productions of ancient printing more interesting than the present one ; whether we consider 
the magnificence of its execution, the importance of the publication, or the interest excited by 
the printer of it." JOHNDE Spira published but three works, of which this is the second. It is 
a noble volume of about 700 pages, and according to the testimony of the printer's brother it 
was executed within the almost incredibly short time of three months. The same authority 
states that only one hundred copies were struck off. 

Blank spaces are left for the passages in Greek to be written in by hand, but in some 
places the Greek is printed in Roman letter, as in the following curious example, which will 
be found on the verso of the 79th leaf, BOOK Vlth, fifth line from the bottom : 

" Xaxilipcui carnece comai coe kpturae trata una ciezica." 

The present copy Is perfect and in unexceptionable condition. The capital letters throughout 
are put in by hand. The initial letters of the several books are beautifully lUimiinated in gold 
and colors, that on the first page being 3H inches by 3 inches in dimension. It is from the 
Syston Park Library.

16° ; rubricated title. 

The most interesting feature of this volume is its beautiful binding. The design on the 
sides represents the arms of the Palatinate of Bavaria in a graceful round cartouche in 
the center. A wide border surrounds the four sides of the cover. The royal ball, the lion, 
and the " fiisel " (arms of Bavaria) are found successively in the small cartouches of the border. 
The back is elaborately tooled, and bears the interlaced letters "B. M." with royal crown 
gracefiilly worked into monograms. 

The elaborate and yet delicate dentelle border on the doublure fittingly completes a binding 
worthy of any master. Unfortunately, the name of the binder is not to be found on the book. 
The volume was bound for Marie HoUandine, princess of the Palatinate of Bavaria, who died 
in 1709, abbess of Maubuisson.

OF the Rare English Edition, with fine portrait of Rabelais, and the numerous curious 
plates from the French edition inserted. 

" It is to Rabelais that satiric fiction is most deeply indebted. Bom at the close of the 
fifteenth century, when the antagonizing elements of barbarism and civilization were most 
prominently brought forward to struggle for mastery, Rabelais early embraced the course of 
modem improvement against the hereditary nonsense which then and now was dignified with 
the title of ' Wisdom of our Ancestors." The state, the church, the various professions, were 
filled vrith solemn blockheads or designing knaves, who looked like owls, chattered like parrots, 
and plundered like ravens. Rabelais was just the man to flutter this precious system of omi- 
thology; he had been himself the inmate of the rookeries. An analysis of this immortal work 
would be of inconvenient length, and after all would displease those acquainted with the great 
original, and convey no adequate notion of its merits to those enviable persons by whom 
it is yet unread. There are many pleasures which can be enjoyed only once in this world : 
the first reading of Rabelais is one of them."— Dr. W. C. Taylor, Essay on Satirical Fiction,

"The ' History of Reynard the Pox' is one of the earliest and best specimens of satirical 
romance in the literature of modem Europe. It is admired in youth, and relished in age. The 
characters are drawn with great discrimination, and sustained with equal spirit; the satires on 
tyranny, roguery, superstition, and hypocrisy are powerful and pointed. Antiquarians have not 
settled the precise age or country to which the work belongs, but there is an individuality in 
the portraits which forces us to believe that they must be resemblances, though we are not 
acquainted with the originals."— Dr. W. C. Taylor, Essay on Satirical Fiction, p. S4-

The foregoing nine volumes are all, with the exception of Vols. I. and II. of "Modem 
Painters," FIRST EDITIONS. As those volumes have no illustrations, the later editions of them, 
containing the author's revisions, are generally regarded as the more desirable. They were 
selected carefully many years ago, and are in the finest possible condition. The impressions 
of the beautiful drawings of Ruskin and Turner are delicate and brilliant, and, that they 
may be seen to better advantage, the plates are mounted on guards. Notwithstanding the 
vagaries of Ruskin's later days, these volumes, written in his prime, will remain as a lasting 
proof of his wonderful genius. No other author of the century has written of nature and 
art with so much enthusiasm and intelligence, and at the same time illustrated his work 
with such exquisite drawings by his own hand. The binding is an excellent example of 
Zaehnsdorf s work in his best days, and the volumes are throughout in the finest possible

A beautiful copy of the First Edition of the " Saybrook Platform," and the FIRST 


" In 1709, this town was honoured by a convention of contending independent divines, who 
were pleased with no constitution in church or state. This multitude of sectarians, after long 
debates, published a book, called, ' The Saybrook Platform,' containing the doctrines and rules 
of the churches in Connecticut. The only novelty in this system is, that Christ has delegated 
his ministerial, kingly, and prophetical power, one half to the people and the other half to the 
ministers. This proposition may be thought in Europe a very strange one ; but if it be 
recollected that the people in the province claimed all power in heaven and on earth, and 
that the ministers had no other ordination than what came from the people, it will appear that 
the ministers hereby gained from the people one half of their power. From this article origi- 
nated the practice of the right hand of fellowship at the ordination of a minister. No one can be 
a minister till he receives the right hand of the messenger who represents six deacons from six 
congregations. The conclusion of this reverend and venerable body is, ' The Bible is our 
rule.' " — See Peters's " General Hist, of Connecticut," Lond. 1781, 8°; pp. 142-3. 

" Previous to 1708, the ' Cambridge Platform' ha-d been the general plan of church fellowship 
and discipline in New England. Divers opinions had long existed as to the policy and efficacy 
of some of its provisions and omissions. In obedience to repeated requests and memorials, 
the Legislature, at their May session, 1708, passed an act requiring the ministers and churches 
of Connecticut to meet and form an ecclesiastical constitution. They accordingly assembled 

€iitalogue of 25oolisf anb a^u^criptsf. 253 

at SaybTook, on the 9th day of September, 1708, and after due deliberation adopted the cele- 
brated ' Sayirook Platform,' together with a confession of faith. A uniform standard of faith 
and action being thus agreed upon, a period of harmony and good feeling followed, such as 
had not been before experienced for many years."— Hollister, "Hist, of Conn.," Vol. I

Boston : 1727-30. 

The Earthquake is thus described by Prince in the Prefaee to his Sermons : " On the 
night after the Lord's Day, Octob. 29, about 40 Minutes paft X, in a calm & serene Hour, 
the Town of Boston was on a sudden extreamely surpriz'd with the most violent Shock of an 
Earthquake that has been known among us. It came on with a loud hollow Noise like the 
Roaring of a Great fired Chimney, but incomparably more fierce & terrible. In about half 
a minute the Earth began to heave and tremble. The Shock increasing, rose to the Hight in 
about a minute more, when the Moveables, Doors, Windows, Walls, especially in the upper 
Chambers, made a very fearful Clattering, and the Houses rock'd & crackl'd, as if they were 
all dissolving and falling to pieces. The people asleep were awakened with the greatest aston- 
ishment: many others affrighted run into the Streets for Safety. But the Shaking quickly 
abated, and in another half Minute intirely ceased. 

"The Noise & Shakes seem'd to come from the Northwestward, and to go off South- 
easterly ; and so the Houses seemed to reel. Some Damage was done to the more brittle sort 
of Moveables, and some Bricks on the Tops of some Chimneys fell ; but not an House was 
broken, nor a Creature hurt. At several times till Day-light, were heard some distant Rum- 
blings, and some fainter Shocks were felt: But since, the Earth has been quiet in Town, tho' 
the minds of many continue very greatly & justly affected."

This, according to Lowndes and Brunet, is the First Edition. Formerly, another edi- 
tion, also printed in 1600, was regarded by commentators as the first. Mr. Halhwell, however, 
has proved, according to Brunet, that the present edition is not only the first but is more 
correct than the other. 

This copy is perfect and in fine condition. Its rarity requires no comment.

Sm. 4° ; bound in maroon morocco, with arms on sides. 

This is the Second Edition of this Play. It presents the usual variety of readings. An 
instance occurs on the recto of H2, where we read : " My foote usurpes my head." In some 
copies of the First Edition this line is found as here. But in others it is : "A foole usurps my 
bed." And the first folio has it thus : " My foole usurpes my body."

This edition has no date. It seems probable, however, that it preceded or followed by a 
short time the edition of 1609. The title-pages have the same words. The fact that this ends 
on L4, and that of 1609 on M2, would seem to indicate that this is the earlier edition, as the ten- 
dency was to "augment" the volumes. The present was Utterson's copy, which is mentioned 
by Lowndes. Mr. Dyce says this edition contains some important various readings.

The First Edition. 

The preface contains the words, " for so much as will make you thinke your testerne well 
bestowd," which Lowndes regards as proof that these quartos were issued originally at the 
price of a " tester," or sixpence. Like all of the First Editions, it is exceedingly rare.

The Second Edition. This volume is not unlikely to be to the admirers of Shakespeare 
the most interesting of all the quartos. It presents the play in a form which differs greatly 
from that of succeeding editions. As it now stands it appeared first in the folio in 1623. The 
copy in the folio contains nearly twice the number of lines that are to be found in the quarto. 

The condition of the volume is most rare and attractive. It is just as originally published, 
and is large, clean, and perfect.

Sm. 4° ; bound in f lain red morocco, with anns on sides. 

This, like all the quartos which appeared before the first folio, is interesting as showing the 
various readings. These are more numerous than is generally supposed. The first line of the 
play in this edition reads, " Now is the winter of discontent," instead of " Now is the winter of 
our discontent," as in the folio. So on the next page " good fathers ' appears for " God- 
fathers." Similar variations occur frequently.

London | Printed by Isaac laggard anA Ed. Blount, 1623. 

Folio; bound in crimson morocco extra, by Bedford. 

The First Edition, containing thirty-six plays, seventeen of which appeared here for the 
first time. The increasing estimation in which this volume is held by the public is shown by 
its steady and rapid advance in price. It was published at one pound sterling, but several copies 
have brought within a few years from $4xxx5 to $6000, and the demand seems to be always in 
excess of the supply The portrait by Droeshout and the verses by Ben. Jonson appeared 
first in this edition and subsequently in those published in 1632, 1664, and 1685. To find both 
of them in as good state as they are here is rare, even in the most expensive copies. The verses 
are as follows : 

To THE Reader. 

This Figure, that thou here seest put. 

It was for gentle Shakespeare cut ; 

Wherein the Grauer had a strife 

With Nature, to out-doo the life : 

O, could he but have drawne his wit 

As well in brasse, as he hath hit 

His face ; the Print would then surpasse 

All, that was euer writ in brasse. 

But, since he cannot. Reader, looke 

Not on his Picture, but his Booke. B. I. 
The present copy measures 12^ by 7^^ inches. It is perfect and in excellent condition. 
The collation conforms in every respect to that given in Lowndes' Manual, except that the 
prehminary leaves are differently arranged.

There are at least six variations of the title-page of this the Second Edition. One copy 
is known in which the word is spelt Coppies. There were several proprietors of this edition, and 
each seems to have had a tide printed with his own name. The text is regarded as valuable 
on account of its various readings, the editorial care bestowed on it, and the correction of some 
of the more palpable typographical errors of the first folio. 

This copy is perfect and in fine condition, with the exceptions that the verses are inlaid and 
the margins of the tide and last leaf are mended. The collation conforms in every respect to 
that given by Lowndes. The volume measures 12 Ji by 8J^ inches.

Aportraitof Shakespeare, signed "W. M. sculpsit" (W. Marshall), faces the first title-page. 
A second title-page forms the fifth leaf. The omission of the date on the second title is the 
only difference between the two. On La commences a head title: "An addition of some 
Excellent Poems, to those precedent, of Renowned Shakespeare, By other Gentlemen." 

The impression of the portrait is brilUant, and the condition of the volume generally is such 
as to please the most fastidious taste. Its rarity in this form is excessive.

London : Printed for P. C. 1664. 

Folio ; bound in crimson morocco extra, by Bedford. 

Of the seven additional plays which appeared for the first time in this the Third Edition, 
only one, " Pericles," has been retained, all the others being regarded as spurious. 

On the fly-leaf is the following note : " This copy of the third (and very rare) edition of our 
great dramatic Poet, formerly belonged to John Kemble, Esq., and was purchased by me at 
the sale of his books in 1820-21, for the sum of eight guineas, it then wanting the portrait, 
which Ihave since suppUed."— E. V. U(tterson). But this portrait, according to Lowndes, 
belongs to the Fourth instead of the Third Edition. The principal difference is that Shake- 
speare is speUed with the final e in the latter and without it in the former. With this exception, 
and that of the skillful mending of the title-page, the present volume is perfect, and in fine, 
clean condition. It measures 12K by 8M inches. It is from the Ubraries of John Philip Kem- 
ble, E. V. Utterson, and Sir Wm. Tite. In point of rarity it ranks next to the First Edition.

Folio ; bound in crimson morocco extra, by Bedford. 

In this, the Foiirth Edition, the original portrait was used, after having been retouched. 
In this state the shading on the left of the forehead is expressed by crossed lines which bend 
outwards, while in the original plate the lines curve inwards and are not crossed. Moreover, 
in the repaired state the hair is crossed instead of being, as in the original, in single lines. 

This copy is perfect, and is exceptionally clean and tall, measuring 13^ by Sjf inches. 

The four folios above described possess an unusual attraction in their binding. They are 
bound uniformly in full crimson crushed levant morocco, the sides and backs richly decorated 
with small tools, with inside panels of green morocco, tooled in a dentelle pattern of excep- 
tional beauty, double fly-leaves, gilt edges. Each volume has a case of olive morocco, 
lettered. The volumes were given to Mr. Bedford virith instructions to spare neither time, 
trouble, nor money in putting them into the best possible condition. The amount of his bill 
was such as to justify the belief that he had taken full advantage of the liberty thus conferred. 
Certainly it would be difficult to find examples of his binding which would excel these in beauty 
of design or perfection of finish.

The First Edition. Although the date and place of printing are not stated it is generally 
believed that this is the first work of VindeUn de Spira, and that it must therefore have been 
issued in 1469. It is interesting, among other things, as being the first book printed with 
catchwords. There are numerous marginal notes, written evidently by a scholar. The book 
is perfect, including even the blank leaves, and is in brilliant condition. All of the initial letters 
are illuminated by hand. It has the ex libris of Ambrose Firmin-Didot.

This RARE pamphlet contains some very unpleasant particulars of the scandalous conduct 
of the Rev. John Wesley during his apostolic mission in Savannah. According to these 
gentlemen, " He was indicted before a Grand Jury of Forty-Four Free-holders, and Thirteen 
Indictments were found against him ; one concerned Mr. Williamson and his Spouse." Mr. 
Wesley, it appears, undertook to "pour the leperous distilment" into the ear of this vir- 
tuous lady, to the effect that "her husband had no right to regulate her behaviour as to 
conversing -mahhim." However, as soon as the distinguished apostle heard that these 
indictments had been found against him, he did not tarry to discuss the question fiirther, 
but bolted out of the town in the night, fled to Charles-Town, and thence to England. See 
pages 41, 2, 3, and 48.

This is the First Edition of the greater part of the works contained in it. Although the 
book is really divided into two parts, the second of which contains the works of Hesiod, it was 
published as one volume and is perfect only when in that condition. A portion of the works 
both of Theocritus and Hesiod appeared in a volume which is generally believed to have been 
printed at Milan in 1493. It contained but eighteen of the eclogues, whereas this edition has 
thirty. This also has the entire works of Hesiod. There were two issues of this edition, of 
which the present copy belongs to the first. Dibdin gives a minute account of the variations. 
This copj is a beautiful specimen of printing, having large outline headbands and capitals, and 
extra wide margins. It is perfect and in excellent condition.

three hundred years. It contains 507 full-length figures engraved on wood, representing the 
costumes of men and women from all parts of the world. It has been mentioned usually as 
"Titian's book," owing, probably, to the fact that the author was a nephew of Titian, to 
whom were attributed the designs of the engravings. The costumes of the aborigines of

8° ; 6 woodcuts; 36 unnumbered leaves, the Letter of Columbus filling only the last seven and a 
half. Crimson morocco, paneled sides, gilt edges, by Pratt. 

A volume of EXTREME RARITY. 

Of the seven early editions known of the Cosco translation of this celebrated Letter of 
Columbus, only two bear a date. The first part of the work is simply a drama on the capture 
of Granada from the Moors by Ferdinand. 


Four voyages are ascribed to Vespucius. The first two were made in 1497 and 1499, in 
behalf of the King of Spain. The third and fourth were undertaken in 1501 and 1503 for the 
King of Portugal. He was not the author of the accounts of his voyages which have been 
transmitted to us ; a fact which, probably, explains the existence of the many conflicting state- 
ments made in and concerning them. The preponderance of evidence seems to indicate that 
he landed on the shores of this continent a short time before the Cabots, and a year or more 
before Columbus. There is no proof that he is directly responsible for the giving of his name 
to the continent. The second and third voyages alone have been printed separately in the 
form of plaguettes, all vrithin the first eight years of the sixteenth century. Four of these are 
described in the numbers immediately foUovring. They are all of the greatest rarity. These 
copies are perfect and in beautiful condition. 

They came from the Barlow Collection.

Harrisse says, in a note accompanying the volume, that he found it in the library of 
S. Marco, in Venice, in 1867 ; that he had never seen a copy before ; that he bought it after 
much negotiation ; that the only other copies were in the Trivulzio Library in Milan and the 
Imperial Library of Vienna ; that it was not in the British Museum, and that it was not 
described in the B. A. V. But there is no doubt that it is described, nevertheless, in the 
B. A. v., No. 30. The description there given is copied by Harrisse from the " Serapeum " 
for January, 1861, and is exceedingly minute. It corresponds exactly with the collation of this 
volume, excepting that the title is printed in one line instead of two. A glance at the B. A. V. 
will be enough to convince any one that no attempt was made to copy the description line for 
line. It is, perhaps, more rare and valuable than any other of the series.

EXCESSIVELY RARE. The title and last leaf of table in facsimUe. The volume con- 
tains an origineil account of the first three voyages of Columbus and of Vespucius's third voy- 
ages written by himself and first published in Latin in the year 1504, the only voyage made 
by him of which there is any account coming from his hands, unless that of the four voyages in 
the COSMOGRAPHI.S; INTRODUCTIO, also published in 1507, be considered, as it claims to be, 
his work. Vasco da Gama's first voyage, the voyage of Cabral, and Pasqualigi's account of 
Caspar Cortereal's first voyage are also found in this the first collection of voyages extant. 

The workwas republished in 1519 and 1521. The latter edition is said to have some additions.

The First Edition. The author of this volume was Waldsee-Muller, or as he chose to 
call himself, putting his name into Greek form, Hylacomylus. With him originated the idea 
of calling this continent America. The suggestion appears on the verso of the fifteenth leaf. 
As his book was very popular, his proposition soon became widely known and was favorably 
received. The book is as rare as it is important. This copy is perfect in every respect 
and is in beautifiil condition. B. A. V., No. 45.

The Second Edition. The printer's mark and surrounding words are the same as in 
the May edition, except that ■' September " is substituted for " May." The subject matter is 
the same in both editions. They are of equal rarity. The title-page of this copy has been 
sUghtly torn and mended. Otherwise it is an even finer copy than the First Edition. The 
margins are wider, and many of the initial letters are colored by hand. B. A. V., No. 46.

Ingenuas quisquis musarum diligit artes 

In primis ipsum laudibus aflSciet. 
Nee uero tantum quia multa uolumina : quantu 

Q perpulchra simul optimacp exhibeat. 

Folio ; bound in old red morocco, vnth ornamental ^It borders, gilt edges. 
The First Edition with a date, and, according to De Bure and Crevenna, absolutely 
the first edition of the works of Virgil. 

It begins with the well known lines of the Eclogues : 


recubans sub tegmine fagi 
Silueftrem tenui mufam 
meditaris auena. 

Then follow the Georgics and the .iEneid, the whole occupying i6i leaves, with 41 lines to 
a fun page. There are, in addition, 4 blank leaves. It is printed on vellum of fine quality, 
and has all the marks of care which the early Italian printers bestowed on notable books. 
The first page is decorated with a border of uncommon beauty, in which figures and ara- 
besque ornament are combined. The lower part of this page shows the effect of careless hand- 
ling. The introductory lines of the several poems are laid on in gold, and the initial letters 
are illuminated in gold and colors — all being perfectly fi-esh and brilliant. The pages measiu-e 
13 X 954 inches, and the side margins are 3^ inches wide. 

Taking all things into consideration, this book should rank next in importance in this col- 
lection to the Gutenberg Bible. It is even more rare than that, there being only about 
seventeen copies known, including those on vellum and paper. It is not strange that Vindelin 
felt the pride shown in the colophon above quoted. To have printed the first edition of 
THE FIRST printed EPIC was no small honor. It preceded the first edition of Homer by 
eighteen years. These three books — the Gutenberg Bible, the Virgil of 1470, and the Homer 
of 1488 — will command forever the admiration and respect of educated people as the worthy 
objects of the highest form of skillfiil and conscientious typographical work.

8° ; bound in dark green morocco, fillets on sides, gilt edges, by C. Kalthoeber. 

This volume is remarkable as being the first printed with that Italic type which Aldus and 
his successors used so generally, and which is still knovm by that name. It was engraved 
by Frangois de Bologne, as Is shown by these verses at the foot of the Preface : 

Qui graiis dedit Aldus, en Latinis 
Dat nunc grammata scalpta daedaleis 
Francisci manibus Bononiensis. 

This volume is Excessively Rare. It is conspicuous by its absence fi-om Lord 
Spencer's Library, and neither Mr. Beckford nor the Duke of Hamilton could obtain a copy 
even in tolerable condition. The present copy is perfect and complete.

While this is an ancient and excellent edition of the works of Virgil, it is not unlikely that 
the volume will be chiefly attractive to amateurs on account of its binding. It is the most 
elaborate specimen of modern binding in the collection, and can hardly be excelled in bril- 
liant beauty. The work was done some years ago by the elder Lortic when in his prime, 
and was regarded by him as one of his chefs d'oeuvres.

It contains a portrait of De Vries by Vischer, fronting the title-page, a coat-of-arms on the 
verso of the tide, and many copperplates, all in perfect condition. It is a complete and unusu- 
ally fine copy of a work which is valued highly for its original information. Besides Hudson, no 
navigator except De Vries published a narrative of his voyages to New Netheriand during the 
Dutch possession. The Hon. Henry C. Murphy translated that portion of the work which re- 
lates to America, and in his introduction says of De Vries: 

" His narratives, where he speaks from personal knowledge, areentitled to the highest credit, 
for not only do they bear internal evidence of truth, but they have been corroborated in many 
instances by other evidence, and by the records which we have; and being his daily observa- 
tions, taken down at the time, they have from this circumstance a value which no narrative

Dibdin says that perfect copies of this impression are of extreme rarity. This copy is from 
the Dent and Perkins libraries, and is said to be the best of the six perfect copies known. 
The estimation in which it is held may be inferred from the fact that Lord Charlemonfs copy, 
wanting two leaves, fetched in 1865 ;^477 iS-f-

This copy of the Institutes of Justinian, printed on vellum by Jacob Rubeis, is said to be 
UNIQUE. It is the Pinelli copy, which fetched £j,6 in 1789. It is a beautiful example of typo- 
graphical work and is in irreproachable condition. The first page of the text is illuminated 
with a brilliant miniature, and the capital letters are of the highest order of merit. 



RoM^, Udalricus Gallus. S. A. sed circa 1470. 

Two vols, folio ; bound in russia by Roger Payne. 

The First Edition of Plutarch's Lives. The appearance of the volumes would indicate 
that the printer appreciated the value of the material intrusted to him, and that he strove to put 
it into an appropriate form. Ulric Han was one of the first to establish a press at Rome, and 
he issued many notable works ; but the Lives of Plutarch are not excelled by any of them in 
beauty and grandeur. In the case of the present volimies the labor of the printer was fittingly 
supplemented by that of the illuminator. The first page of each volume is ornamented with a 
beautiful border and initial letter in gold and colors. Taken all in all they are superb books 
and worthy of admiration in every respect. ' 

miretur vulgus, mihi flaunus Apollo Pocula Castalia plena ministret aqua. 
, London : Printed by I. H. and are to be sold by Francis CotUes in the Old 
Baily without Newgate, 1636. 

18° ; blue morocco extra, gilt edges, by Bedford. 

One of tv^o perfect copies known, the other being in the British Museum. The 
latter copy, although described by Lowndes as a fine one, is declared by Mr. Justin Winsor 
in his Bibliography to be badly stained and soiled and to have a few leaves mended. The 
present copy, with the exception of a slight mend on the title-page, MAY BE described as 
absolutely perfect. There are, from the date of the first edition in 1593 to 1636 inclusive, 
of all the editions combined, but thirty perfect examples. Most of these are in libraries from 
which they can never be sold, so that the collector can have little hope of ever procuring a copy. 

Aside from its rarity, this book has an additional interest from the fact that it is supposed 
to be the first printed publication from Shakespeare's pen, as is indicated in the dedication which 
is as follows : 

"To the Right Honourable, Henry Wriothesly Earle of Sovthampton and Baron of Tich- 

Right Honourable, I know not how I shall offend in dedicating my unpolishd lines to your 
Lordship, nor how the world will censure me for chusing so strong a prop to support so weake 
a burthen ; onely if your Honour seeme but pleased, I account my selfe highly praised, and

Folio; bound in morocco extra, blind tooled; doubliwith morocco, leather fly-leaves. 

This volume contains numerous curious woodcuts by an English artist, which add much to 
the interest it naturally excites as the work of England's second great printer. It has many 
leaves with rough edges, and is complete with the title and last leaf containing Caxton's device 
and large cut on reverse. It is one of Wynkyn de Worde's most magnificent typographical 
productions, and has been considered the finest copy in existence.
