TItE present 
attempt to describe in detail the products and working 
O-:ford Press in its early days. Though eclipsed by the 
of the later University Press, the first period, included 
book, has a natural importance of its own. The Fifteenth 
early Sixteenth Century presses  are necessarily of interest, 

work was undertaken early in 889, and is an 

of thc 
in this 

when printing became firmly established in ]585 ît began to 
reflect faithfully the current tendencies of thought and study in 
the University. Theology is predominant, animated on its con- 
troversial side with tierce opposition to the Church of Rome, but 

the quieter fields 
by side is seen 
lighter books 
(6o 3, no. 5)- 
The most 

of classical work are well represented, and side 
an increasing study of English literature. Of 
there are few, and of chapbooks perhaps only one 

important works 

produced at Oxford between .585 

and 64o were Richard de Bury's Philobiblon (I599), Wyclifçs 
treatises (6o8), capt. John Smith's Map of Virginia (6_), 
Burton's Anatomy of Melancholy (I6_. &c.), Field on the 
Church (6.8, &c.), Sandys' translations of Ovid's Metamm- 
phoses (633), the University Statutes (I634), Chaucer's Troilus 
and Cressida in English and Latin (635), Chillingworth's 
Religion of Protestants (638), and Eacon's Advancement and 
Proficience of Learning, in Englîsh (64o: see frontispiece). 
There are of course many books on logic, philosophy and the 
like, intended for the University curriculum, and many collections

of the rhetorical poems by which the University was expected 
to condole or rejoice with every change in the royal estate, i8o 
pages of mechanical grief at Elizabeth's death in I6o 3 are at once 
followed by OEoo pages of equally mechanical congratulations to 
J ames I : and the metrical tears dropped in turn on the grave of 
the latter monarch in Iarch 625, are in .\[ay succeeded with 
indecorous haste by songs of joy on the marriage of lis successor. 
Some volumes of English poems and plays occur, by Skelton, 
Nicholas Breton. Churchyard, I;itz-Geffrey. Randolph, Cart- 
wright, Fletcher, and others, and a few still lighter pieces, such 
as a 5Iasque at Richmond, partly in \Viltshire dialect, and 
'" t3ushells Rock," both in 636. There are traces of the study 
of Spanish, French and \Velsh, as well as of Latin and Greek ; 
and an attempt to introduce phonetic writing and spelling was 
made by Charles Butler in I633 and I6.3 4. Even theological 
disputes are lightened by the solemn account of certain J esuits 
in the East, who dressed up a carcase as that of a queen recently 
deceased, obtained much glory from the miracles it wrought, 
until the real corpse arrived and the priests vacated the vicinity 
(633 , Gregorius). There is something surprising in Oxford 
being chosen as the printing-place of a book to persuade mothers 
to nurse their own children (62:, Clinton) ; and an episcopal 
alchemist is not often to be met with in real lire (16 2 , Thorn- 
borough). I t is lcss to be wondered at that a college which had 
leased land to Queen Elizabeth for a quiet rive thousand years, 
should try to be relieved of its agreement within fifty (623,

with importance. Though it is true that money was advanced 
in 1.585 by the Earl ofLeicester, Chancellor of the University, to 
set up Joseph Barnes with a new press, and that

printing, there are as yet few signs of actual academical patron-

and F, are the ordinary fluctuations of trade. Nor can the 
Oxford press at this time claire much connexion with the greater 
world of the English Court or Church. After it was placed on 
a permanent footing by the Earl of Leicester, its one great patron 
and protector within our period was Archbishop Laud, who 
occupied a similar position to that of Bishop Fell at a later 
period in the saine century. 
The year I64o has been chosen as the inferior limit of this 
bibliography, partly because both the British Iuseum Catalogue 
of early English books and Arber's Transcript of the Registers 
of the Stationers' Company stop at that point, partly because 
the interest in the products of the press as such xvas round to be 
rapidly diminishing, and partly in consequence of the break-up 
of all quiet progress during the convulsions of the Rebellion, 
combined with the dismal prospect of that trackless wilderness--- 
the literature of the Civil \Var.

The present bibliography presents, it is believed, four features 
novelty :--the better representation of the titlepage by the 

of Roman and Italic capitals as well as ordinary type; the 
of the chief type used in each book; the furnishing of 
words of certain pages, to facilitate the identification of 

imperfect copies; and the insertion of actual pages  of books 
printed at Oxford, selected fi'om works which are cheap and 
common. These points are explained and discussed in a paper 
on A[et/od b ibliograp/o,, printed at pp. 9 - o6 of vol.  of the 
Transactions of the Bibliographical Society (,893), to which the 
reader is referred, if he xvishes to see a fuller account of the 
xvhole aim and method of the present book. 
The best thanks of tte writer are due for general help to 
Mr. E Gordon Duff, Librarian of the John Rylands (late 
Spencer) Library at Ianchester, to Ir. F. J. H. J enkinson, 
Librarian o[ the Cambridge University Llt)rars- , and to lr. \V. 
H. Allnutt of the Bodleian : but especially to the Delegates of 
the Clarendon Press both for undertaking on liberal terres a work 
which can scarcely prove remunerative, and for enabling the 
Oxfol'd Historical Society to supply copies to its members, as 

i Separate leaves from rare and costly books are given in G.E. Klemming's Sveriges 
dldre lilurgiska literatur (Stockholm, I879 --a practice which cannot be approvedh 
but no local press has as yet been similarly illustrated. 

viii PREFACE. 

vol. xxix, at a price far below its actual cost . Mr. Horace Hart, 
the Controller of the Press, has taken a warm personal interest 
in the printing, and any merits of form which may be round are 
due to his experience and to the co-operation of his compositors. 
Nothing, however, can relieve the writer of responsibility for the 
errors and shortcomings which will be detected ; and he can only 
plead that it is better to bring out an imperfect book, if it is 
a useful one and the result of hard work, than, by straining after an 
unattainable completeness, to delay indefinitely its publication.

and are hot supplied by the Society. 


Da/es. The books classed under a given year, such as 1615, are neces- 
sarily such as were issued between 25 .XIarch I615 and 24 Iarch 1616, 
since no means exist for dividing them according to the historical year. In 
recording a date between Jan. I and Iarch 24, the form used is invariably the 
23 Feb. I6I, by which is implied what we understand 

double one, such as 
by ?-3 Feb. 1616.

]?eferences. The usual style of reference throughout the book (including 
index) is to the year followed by the im'tial le/ter of the particular heading ; 
as 634 C, when the reference is to no. 9 on p. 77 ICosin). A few references 
will be found in the earlier pages to years beyond 64o, made before it was 
decided to close the work at that year. 
Titles. The heading usually presents the author's name in the form by 
which he is generally known to posterity, as "James ii, king," although at 
the time of the book referred to he was prince James.

x5th and early x6th century. 

The books of these periods are in some reslJects exceptionally treated, but the 
general plan is similar to that of the later prcss. Pages I- 7 (printed off in 1889) must 
be taken in close connexion with Appendixês A and B, which correct and supplement 
those pages in important points. 
. After the heading (which in all cases is the author or a body epresenting the 
author, if known ; othervdse the catch-titlê) cornes the title, reproduced faithfully so far 
as was possible with the employment of four types. A fifth minute type indicates 
letters repl-esented by contractions in the original. The occurrence of a " motto" 
(whëther a text or quotation), a device ,.sec p. 289 or woodcuts (sec p. 290 ) is noted 
in square brackets. A * bt:fore the heading implies " undated ": a "t" " no place of 
printing mentioned." 
2. Next follows the technical description, comprising :m 
a. The number of the imprint (sec pp. 29z-3to : it would bave been better to 
add the names of the printer and publisher to the bare reference).

) THtï OXFORD PIiESS. [1459. 





A small sheet of paper printed on the ice-bound Thames at London 
Jan. I716 ascribes to Oxford the first printing in England, in the 
ear 459- Iost of the information on the sheet is derived from 
.tk.yns's Orfgfnal and Groz,l] of Prbzl>zg (Lond. 1664). 


Printing was "practised in Oxford in I46I," according to Randle 
Holmes's Acad«my of Armory (Chester, 1688), quoted in Bigmore, 


In Herbert's Ames, iii. 12393 we read :--"In the late Tho. Osborne's 
catalogue of books for sale in June I756, No. 345' Plinii Secundi 
Epistolarum, Liber primus. Exemplar elegans, literis initial, colorat. 
corio turcico, fol. deaur, lineis rubris & auto elegans ornat. 151. l SS. 
Oxon. apud F. Corsellis. 1469." To which is added this note, 'Hocce 
unicum est exemplar notum, a variis allegatum, et vix uni visum adeo ut 
Phoenix librorum dici mereratur [s?], cene primus est ex libris a Cor- 
cellis impressis, cui nomen suum adjunxerit, secundus vero ordine 
omnium quos unquam ille impressit, priorem scilicet scimus fuisse, 
Jeronymi Expositionem in Symbol. Apostol. Oxoniae 1468. Anno 
147o, varia idem typographus impressit Opuscula, addito in fine nomine, 
sed nec unicum eorum reperitur hodie integrum. Possident quidam 
amatores fragmenta aliqua poematum Latinorum, ut Gerardi Lystrii 
Rhenensis, &c. Carmen Listrii lividorum hominum venenosas linguas, 
&c.' This raised the curiosity of the book collectors, who considered 
this article as a confirmation of what R. Atkins had asserted about 
printing at Oxford. Thev all flocked to Osborne's shop, who instead 
of the book, produced a "letter from a man at Arnsterdam, filled with 
frivolous excuses for not sending them to him. They were disappointed, 
and looked on the whole as a Hvx; however the Plinii lïpistoloe, and 
Ger. Listrii Oratio, &c. afterwards appeared at an auction at Amsterdam, 
and were bought for the late Dr. Ant. Askew; and were sold again at an 
aucdon of his books, by Baker and Leigh, in Feb. 1775- Lot 2064, and 


2622, to which articles are annexed, viz. to Lot 2o64,'Ad finem hoec 
verba, lmpr. Oxon. apud t. Corsdlis, 147o, Manu recentiore exarata 
sunt.' Also to lot 2622, ' Hoec verba, lmprim. Oxon. ap. Corsdlis, 1469, 
Manu recentiore exarata sunt.' To those who are at all conversant in 
early printing, the dates will appear at first sight a bungling forgery." 
So far Herbert's Ames, cf. Bowyer and Nichols's Orz'gin of t)rinlt),g, 
2nd ed. (Lond. I776), p. 171. The full entry of art. 2064 is "Listrii 
(Ger.) Oratio habita in Enarrationem Dionysii IIalicarnassii; Dionysii 
Orbis expositio e Greco tralata Prisciano interprete ; Ejusdem Crmen in 
venenosas Linguas Hominum, & Epicedium doctissimi Adoloscentis 
Ingenisissimique Petri Thessaliensis" : sold to 3Ir. Dent for :£2 3 s. : art. 
2622 has 1569 for 1469, and was sold to Capt. Smith for £ I 6s. 

In the Auction Catalogue of the Library of Dr. Abr. de Vries of 
IIaarlem (Amsterdam, Frederick 3Iuller, I864) art. 181 was :--"CR- 
CLLIs.Collection de lettres, copies authentiques, déclarations et notices

et la Haye, qui fabriqua une ;dition de Plinii @islol«e, avec souscriItion :

Smith b. v. Damme, une lettre forgée ou falsifi4 du Comte de Pembroke, 
une lettre de P. Burman Sec.. copie d'une d4claration de 3Ieerman, etc. 
etc." It is to be hoped that this interesting collection will be brought to 
light again. 

In the 3[onthly 3h'scellat9, , or 3[emoirs for the Curious (June 7o8), 
p. 177 it is stated that in the Bishop of Ely's Library (now at Cambridge) 
are books "of the first printing in England at Oxford in  469." 


" Guido de Columnia de historia Trojana, per T. R. (Theodore ood). 
Quarto. 148o." So Herbert's Ames, p. x393. The source of the error 
was discovered by Cotton to be a forgery in a copy of Guido sine anno 
et loco preserved in the .Earl of Pembroke's Library at Wilton (l.),p. Gaz., 
ISt ser., 2nd ed., p. 209.) 

Before 1487 . 

"Books from the Oxford Press .... 208*. The Chronicles of England. 
Folio. Lent by the Earl of Jersey." So in the Catalogue of the Caxton 
Celebration, 1877 , p. 28. Some error. The reference is no doubt to 
Caxton's Chronicle of England, printed in x 482. 

When Cotton printed his Tg'pogra2ht'cal Gazel/e,r, 2nd sertes, (Oxf. 
1866) he believed that an Indulgence of 1489 (altered to 1499), in the 

 o THE OXFORD PRESS'. [408. 

Library of Trinity College, Dublin, was printed at Oxford. It is "a 
small broadside on vellum, consisting of 24 lines only, printed very 
closely and occupying a space of about nine inches bv six." The In- 
dulgence is from Johannes de Gigliis alias de Liliis postolicus Sub- 
diaconus, granted by Pope Innocent iii: and is dated't 499, there being 
no naine of place or date of printing. There is no doubt that Cotton 
as mistaken in attributing this piece to the Oxford press. 

1. Bagford, in his inaccurate way, gives the title of an edition of the 
Greek text of the Ehics of Aristotle by Aretinus " Oxon. 1498 " (Brit. 
)Ius. MS. Harl. 59ot, fol. 3)- He mentions the 1479 edition of the 
Latin text separately, but the former date can only be due to some 
confusion with the latter. 

2. The Rufinus of 1468 appears as dated 498 in Panzer, v«ho quotes 
Schoenemann i 8" ' 
• 5 o, and also in 5Iigne s t)alrologia Latine, xxi. col.  7. 

Indulgence : see 489. 



. Buridanus: see next arlicle. 

.-,. "Gualtheri I3urley Tractatus de materia et forma ac de relativis. 
Oxonii 15oo. 4-" So in Panzer ii (i794) p. 2"244, quoting Iaittaire p. 
739, ex Bibl. Bodl. p. i 7 (an allusion to an error in the Bodleian 
Catalogue of I674 repeated in the 1738 Catalogue p. 2-,06). Bagford 
makes the same mistake, twisting the author's naine into Johannes 
Buridanus (Brit. Mus. 3IS. ttarl. ,59Ol, fol. 3). Even Hain (no. 4142) 
has copied from Panzer. The colophon of 1518. ]3 shows how the error 
arose, as Cotton points out (7j7. G«z., ist ser., 2nd ed., p. 209). 

3, 4- Bagford is responsible for two more fictitious Oxford books of 
15oo, a Quaesliones de lumine et lute (Brit. Mus. MS. Harl. 59o, fol. 3, 
Bodl. )IS. Rawl. D. 375, fol. lO 3 : a confusion with i58. L) and a 
Whitinton de lu'lerocO'lis nom),ibus printed at Oxford by Peter Treveris (!) 
(Bodl. IIS. Rawl. D. 375. fol. lO3: see 5x8. W). 

The following book though not printed at Oxford supplies information 
about an Oxford bookseller :[sign. a if :] ,, Principia seu introduc-

a 5th treatise, ending with a letter from Peregrinus de Lugo dated 
"Tholose quarto Kalendas Februarij. 3I. ccccc, vj." Herbert's Ames 
(iii. i396) refers this book to Oxford, although at i. _-,52 it is referred 
rightly to Pynson's press at London. 

References to a Com,ndium qu«esh'uncularum «le luce ci lumi»e, Oxford 
151o , will be found in Bagford (Brit. Mus. IS. Harl. 59Ol, fol. 
I3odl. IS. Rawl. D. 375, P- lO4), no doubt from the Calalogus librorum 
AISS "-"' Angh'ce e! lliberniw (Oxf. 1697, fol.), tom. e, p...-80, col. 1, 
among the printed books of John 3Ioore bp. of Norwich. An error for 


The 1481 Alexander de Hales appears in Bagford (Brit. 3Ius. 3IS. 
IIarl. 59Ol, fol. 23, Bodl. 3IS. Rawl. D. 375, P. IO4) as of 1511, printed 
at Oxford. 

"Walterus Burleius, super libros Posteriorum. i512. 40. .. qO in 
Cotton's ]il/'- Gaz., 2nd ser., p. 169, and in a longer form in Herbert's 
Ames iii. 396, and Panzer vil. p. 494, quoting J3riiggemann i. 172. 
The source of the mistake is easily found in the colophon of 1517. B. 
a "v" having been overlooked. The error is repeated in the t?ookworm 
(1868) p. 126. 

Before I519. 

According to Cotton (/il/'. Gaz., 2nd ser., p. 169) an edition of "Jo. 
Duns Scotus, Scriptum Oxoniense super primum Sententiarum" (Paris 
I5t9) professes to be "impressa juxta editionem Oxoniensem." This 
cannot be correct, unless eddtb refers only to some traditional method of 
exposition or arrangement at O.,fford.

John Dorne, bookseller in Oxford, sold in i52o several copies of a 
small book described in his da)'-book as '" Bene fundatum, "Bene 
fundatum Oxonie" or " Bene fundatum uosgraf." This seems to be a 
trace of a real Oxford book now lost, but no such printer as Vosgraf or 
Foxgrave (Dorne was from the Low Countries) is known. It would 
probably belong to the 5 7-9 press. See Dorne's book edited in the 
Colhclama vol. i of the Oxford Historical Society, 885. Cotton erro- 
neously reads the title as " ]3ene sum datum."

For the author &c. see \Vood's Ath. Oxom ii. 169: where it is pointed out that 
the book has a curious history. ts ostensible purpose is to uphold the doctrine after- 
wards ealled " passive obedience " by refuting two books which were regarded as sub- 
( '

employ our author.., to write the said book " tojusN/), the Netherland revolt. And 
certain it is that in consequenee of the temperance and fairness with which Bp. Bilson 
treats his subject, the parliamentary part)' in Charles I's rime used this book to otiose 
" passive obedience."

The first book printed at the new Oxford press. The allusions to this and kindred 
facts are (I) in the " Epistola Nunct, patoria." Case says of the reasons for dedicating 
the work to the Earl of Leicester " Unum est nouum hoc proeli beneficium, quod te 
authore nostra Aoedemia nuper recepit... Proelum hoc nouum (cuius author existis) 
hunc nouum de moribus libellum pressit. Ne ergo author libelli proeli authori videatur 
ingratus, tibi primùm eiusdem fructum ex animo propinauit..." (2) the printer himself 
writes "Admirabilem hanc artem typographicom (Mecçnas amplissime) primum Iohannes 
Faustus bloguntioe fauste genuit [the marg. supplie "Anno 145o"], eandem GuiIielmus 
Caxtonus duis Londinensis probè aluit & perpoliuit : Laus summa debetur authori qui

eertè gaudeo. Nam si characteres typographi sint vera insignia & arma Minerue; vbi

vt enim à fonte in riuum dulcis aqua, ita hic quidem à mente in proelum dulcissima 
Musa fluet. Non nugoe, non aniles fabulæ, non Aristarchi dentata opera hîc exeu- 
dentur : ea solùm ex his proelis in lucem renient quç sapientum calculis approbentur, 
& Sybillç foliis sint veriora, ttoc vnum nunc rcstat o-ir inclytissime) vt hunc libnm

summe) meo, dominoque gratulor " nos ambo & publieo pro multis, & priuato 
nomine po magms m nos meritis vobis vtriusque Academioe patronis deuincti sumus, 
gratias immortales vterque agimus, maiores in posterum pollicemur" : (3)the Vice- 
chancellor, J. Underhill, writes" Non dedit hoc seclo prrelum Oxoniense priorem [librum] 
I Doctrinâque dabunt secula nulla parera." (4) Laurence l]umfrey says " Hoc Speculum 
vobis nunc Oxoniensis alumnus [ Porrigit, en proeli dat quoque primitias." 
It is dear that neither the Vice-ehancellor nor the pfinter of this volume had any 
suspicion that there had been printing in Oxford prevlous to the publication of the 
present volume, unless " recepit " be a vague allusion to it. 
The work is a companion one to the saine author's Summa v«t¢rum interdretum in 
universam dialecticam Aristotelis, Lond., Tho. Vautrollerius, 1584, see 1592. C, 1598. 
C : and there i even a typographical connexion between the two. 
For an account of the author, see Wood's Ath. Oxon., i. 685. The method adopted 
by Cae is by quaestiones, oosiHoncs and responsiones in tbe manner of the disputa- 
tions in the schools at the time. Other editions were issued at Oxford in  596, and at 
F'rankfurt in 1589, 161o and 1625- See x 396. L.

Very rare. The visit appears from Wood's Annals ii. 223 to have been in Jan. 
58, and the date of printing I I Jan. I58{. The difficulties in the way of reçardin,,, , 
this sheet as the first printing of the new Oxford Press are the form of the date, which 
usually implies Jan. x 58{, the asertion of Barnes that the Case ,,vas the ri,st produc- 
tion, and the improbability that the Committee of Convocation appointed to consider 
"de libris imprimendis" on 23 Dec. 1584 would proceed to action so soon as II J,'m. 


158-}. But the fitness of the earlier date is too obvous to be gainsaid. 
probably the first printed sheet issued by Barnes.

¢3f this book also there is a curious history. Gaspare Loarte, a Spanish Jesuit who 
spent most 9f his lire at Rome, v,'rote an "Essercitio della vita christiana " seine rime 
bêfore 569. In 579 J- Sancer, a friend of Robert l'arsons the Jesuit, published a 
translation into English of one of the three parts of the work. In I58 Parsons him- 
self publi»hed "The firste booke of the Christian Exercise, appertayning to resolution" 
in two parts, which is practically a new work based on part of the original "E.ssercitio." 
Loarte is mentioned in the preface, but the author only signs his naine by the initiais, 
R. I'. This was again issued without l'arsons' knosvledge in I584 . 
In 585 (or according to Wood and Ames, copied by tlerbert and Dibdin, in 584 ') 
Fdmund Bunny printed and publisbed the first edition of an adaptation of Parsons' 
book fitted for Protestant readers " at London, by N. Newton, for Iohn Wight," 8". 
The dedication is to the archbp, of York and the preface dated 9 July  584 at Bolton- 
Percy. The book was entered at Stationers' ttall on e8 Aug. I584. The Oxford 
edition before us i» a reprint of this London edition with no intêntional variation, 
except the omission of the amas of the archbishop of York on the verso of the title ot 
the London issue• borne of the woodcut ornaments and capitals of the two issues are 
In " I585, Aug. 30" Parsons again put out his book in a revised and largely 
augmented form v, ith a new title "A Christian Directorie"which when complete was 
to consist of three books, the first of which, treating of Rêsolution, is alone contained 
in this edition. The preface contains a criticism of the London issue of Bunny's 
adaptation, which provoked " A briefe answer vnto those idle and friuolous quarrels 
of R. P. against the late edition of the Resolution : By Edmtmd Btmny." Lond., 
1589, 8 °. 
Other editions of Bunny's adaptation of Parsons' ,« Christian exercise" are 586 
(Lond., " by I. Iackson and Ed. Bollifant for John Wight," 12°; in IIerbert's posses- 
sion), I589 (Lond., i °- Bohn), '594 (Lond., 4": Bohn), I6o 9 (,Lond., IZ°: Bohn), 
I6I 5 (Lond., I Z°). See also next art. Parsons' own work was several times re- 
printed : and in 1591 appeared an edition of his " Christian Directorie," anonymously 
adapted, as the former vork, for the use of Protestants, and with the deceptive title 
" The second part of the booke of Christian Exercise, appertayning to Resolution, or 
a Christian directorie.., written by the former authour R. P." (Lond., to;. This

Tyograihical Antiqttities (Lond. 749) gives a shorter title and describes the book as 
a quarto. Other edd. are Lond. 585, in êights (pp. [o]+ o6), and Oxf. 594 
(with 5 Decembcr at end of dedication, pp. [IO] + Io) : but both are different from 
the present book, if Herbert's description may be trusted.

See Wood's Aih. Oxon., i. a35. This work is an imaginary reply of I{ippolytu» to 
the têmptations of l'haedra, in ovidian elegiacs. The author, John hepery, of Corpus 
Christi College (" omatochristianus"', tells us in the preface that it was composed 
as a return for kindness sh,,wn him bv one Guadus (Wade ?, whom the editor describes 
as a chaplain to t[enry viii), but telayed for some years. Shepery died in 54 , 
aged 3z years. George Etheridge (" Edrychus") was a pupil of Shepery, tellow of 
Corpus, and a Roman Catholic. 
"lhe date is fixed at 586 by two passages- Etheridge in his preface states that 
for about 53 years he had been a membcr of the University " he was admitted sclaolar 
of Corpus in Nov. 534. Also Dr. Humphrey in his introduction to the Summa et 
U,zotsis (see below) alludes to the llitolylus as " ,mperrime lmpressum." " \Vood 
places the date at about 584, and the Bodleian catalogue of I843 assigns the boc& 
to i54 z, owing to the date of bhepery's death, which happens to occur promiaently 
at the end of Etheridge's preface.

The "Summa Ioannis Sheprevi " is a set of elegiac stanzas, each stanza describing 
the contents of a chapter in the New Testament, and beginlaing suceessively  ith the 
letters of the alphabet, written by John Shepery, of Corpus Christi College, Reader of 
the IIebrew Lecture from about 1537 to his death in 542. The Summais stated by 
Wood to have been first published at Strasburg in about 556 by John Parkhurst bp. 
of Nonvich, next in Lond.  560 (Wood), and from Humfrey's ed. in "Gemma Fabfi," 
Lond. 1 9 8, and " Biblii (or Bibliorum) summula," Lond. I6I, etc. The first distich 


is '" A priscis oritur Christus, turbatur Ioseph, I Angelus hune retinet, virgo beata 
parit." Mb. C. C. C. (,Oxf.) 266 contains these verses. 
The " ynopds " is a similar set of elegiac stanzas, without the alphabetical succes- 
sion of first letters, first inserted in the Latin editions of Erasmus's New Testament, 
from that of 1542 on. The author appears to be unknown : the first di.-tich is 
" Angelus in sonmis iustum solatur Ioseph. [ Prototoco Marioe nomen Iesus erit." 
In the prêface Dr. IIumfrey states that his object in editing the book was to recall 
young students to the study of the Iext of the Bible, and that he had collated a 315. 
copy of the Sumota with bp. l'arkhurst's edition, and had compared different editions of 
the Synopsis : he alludes also to the Itippolytus of Shepmy as "nuperrime imprêssum."

from the Epistle dcdicatory. John IIarmar the translator was in this year l'roctor, 
Regius proIesor of Greek and Fellow of New College. I le says. "I was requested, 
right honorable, by manie of my friends to emploie the time of this last vacation of 
mne from my publique readinges in the Vniuersitie, in the translating of Master 
Bezaes Serinons Vl,On the Canticle of Canticles, which I had a little before receaued 
from the Francfurt nart in French, into our vulgare and Mother tongue." The 
patronage of Lord Dudley is acknowlcdged and details of the translator's lite are given, 
as that he attendcd Beza's lectures and serinons at Geneva. The work translated was 
no doubt Beza's " Sermons sur les troi premiers chapitres du Cantique des cantiques

first book on the love ofbooks. The cdiHoibrinceis is that of 473 printed at Cologne : 
the next Spires, I483 and Paris ,.aoo. An accvunt of these editions and of the knmn 
MSS. of the Philobiblon will be round in E. C. Thomas's edition (,I.ond., 1888). The 
mysterious "/7. /-9. ¢V." on the titlepage (followed by " Non quoerv quod mihi xtile est. 
sed quod multis") is explained by him as perhaps " Bibliothecae l'raefectus Novae" 
or " Nostrae" or rather " Bono l'ublico Natus: " it bas been suggested that they may 
stand for " Beati l'auli Norma," alluding to I Cor. x. 33- The Editor explains that 
it was intended that the work should be followcd by an Appendix containing a cata- 
logue of ail IISS at Oxford, a purpose which seriuusly delaved the issue of the book. 
In fact the whole of the text of the lhilobiblon was printed" off in 1598, as is proved 
by a single copy sti]l preserved in the Bodleian dated in that year but containitg only 
the titlepage, (identical m type with the published one, except in one figure of the 
date) and pp.  to 62 + [9. blank]. As it is, the Appendix only contains an alpha- 
betical list, without references, of the authors of which manuscripts wcre preserved at 
Ox%rd : the intended catalogue appears in the Ecloga O.ronio-Canta3r,7Œicnsis, Lond., 
6oo. The preface alludcs to the founding of the F, odleian, but dr. James had hOt yet 
1,een appointed Librarian. There is no sufficient ground for supposing with mr. 
Thç, mas (ut su a, p. Iv) and mr. Macrav Annals of lhe £odleian..nd ed., p. 25) 
that the single advanee copy of  598 implies an is_me or edition of that year.

and the ilnprint falsified, perhaps in order to escape the necessity of registration at the

seems to have escaped the notice of biographers. The better known bp. Robert 
Sanderson also wrote on Logic, see 1615-S. Tbe preface throws no light on the life of

Rare and valuable. See \Vood's Aih. Oxon., ii. 58, where some extracts are gien. 
Eaeh leaf bears an engraving of the arms of the University or a College, and a short 
Latin poem following. The title appears to indicate the struggle of king James and 
England against Italian wiles, the words being from Virg. Aen. i. 72, where the context 
bears a different meaning. The dedication shows that the poems were written in I6O6. 
The arms are in some respects peculiar, and were probably enKraved at Oxford.

"An liceat manto uxorem verberare" was one of those selected for the degree of 
D.C.L, Il July t6o8, but Gager was neither inceptor nor respondent. The lady 
M. II. seems from the dedication to have commanded Iteale to undertake the task of 
replying and to have allowed him scant rime in which to do it.

of the t3ay and Rirers, with an annexed Relation of the Countries and Nations that 
inhabit them" (p. 444), which President JOHy S.xtlTrr sent home, about November 
 6o8, to the Cormcil in London, as the result of lais explorations in Chesapeake Bay in 
the previous summer. 
That this book of tmvels &e. should have been printed at the Oxford University 
Press is a most singular fact .... 
The hand printing presses in England were jealonsly registered, and locked ap every 
night, to prevent snrrepti[ti]ous printing ; all throngh the lifetime of out Author : and 
the Company of Stationers of London especially watched with a keen jealousy the 
printing operations of the two Universitîes of Cambridge and, who each pos- 
sessed a single hand press. Sec \V. HERBERT'S edifion of J. 2kMES'S T)ogra#hical 
AnNquiNes, iii, 139 8, Ed. z 79 o, 4to. 
This solitary hand printing press at Oxford, usually produced semons, theolo#eal 
and leamed Works, &c. ; in the midst of which, this book of travels crops up mn a 
startling manner. 
Why could hot, or would hOt SXtITH get it printed in London ? Had the revision of 
its second Part by the Rev. DR. SI.tXOYDS anything to do with the printing at Oxford ? 
These nuts we must leave for others to crack. 
Of course, being printed at Oxford, this book was hOt restered at Stationer's Hall, 
London . . . 
It is sometimes miname..l the Oxford tract ; but it is rather a book than a tract. 

[Preface to part 2]. 

T. AI3BAY states .... [in his preface] respecting this second Part, 
ACther ara l the author, for they are mao,, whose particular discourses are siffned 
by their names. This solid treatise, first was comtoiled by Richard Fot, sDoee passing 
the hands of many to pem,se, chancing into my haMs, (for that I kno'w them honcst 
men, and can partly well witnesse their rdations truc) I could do no lesse in chari O, to 
the world then r,eale ; nor in conscoere, but afiOroz:e. 
Thi Part is therefore the Vindication or 3lanifesto of the thirty or forty Gentlemen 
and Soldiers, who, under Stl rH. saved the Colony ... 
This second Part of the Alap of lTrgnia, eompiled, and perhaps added to, by 
RICHARD POTS, ... tested and revised by the Rev. XVILLIA.M SIMMONDS, D. D., ... 
and published by T. ABBAY; is a condensed summary of the sayings and writings of 
the following seven VirgfixLian Colonists : 

Original tlanters, 1607.

Extremely rare. This book has never been round except in fragments, and usually 
in the bindings of books. The Bodleian copy is complete: Merton college, Oxford, 
has nearly a complete one from its bindings: the British Museum copy v,'as dr. 
Bandinel's (Sale Catal., Aug. I86, no. 44 , and contains the first 16 (?) pages. Other 
fragments are known to exist, chiefly in Oxford collcge libral 3, bindings. The poem 
was reproduced in facsimile in 1872 by W. tI. Allnutt (oo copies'). 
It seems on the vhole probable that this William Basse,  ho was a retainer in ,.ir 
R. Wenman's bouse 'Thame l'ark), is identical with the William Bas who wrote Sword 
and ]9't/cio]er (Lond. i6o2, 4"), which is a poetical defence of Serving-men against the 
score of their superior. In Stanza 2 f the present poem is a clear reference to 
Bas's Three tastoral Eleges (Lond. 6o_,, 4 °) n the following terms :" Not Ilike 
as vhen some triviall discontents [ First taught my rav," and luckle_se youth to rue [ 
Doe I to Flockes, now vtter my laments ...". On the other hand the author of 
the Sword and t?ucb&r had two sons, wherea_ here he speaks of his "young Muse." 
O/ber poems by "William Basse" (Eas) prepared for the press in 653 were printed 
by J. P. Collier in 187o; and contributions to the Annalia 1)ubrensia (636) and 
Walton's Angler, as well as an " Epitaph -apon Shakespeare " are mentioned. 
See J. Payne Collier's tibliograhical accounl (1865) p. 54, W. C. Hazlitt's ][and- 
bok¢1867) and (1'ibliographicaI) Collections, st series (8î6'. The author is men- 
tioned as living at loreton near Thame. in Wood's Aih. Oxon., iv. zz. 
The subject of the first poem is Prince Henry's death, and of the " Morning" the 
wedding of the princess Elizabeth.

Henry Gamett in 16o6, against some Jesuit books ; a reply was published at Cologne

Gallum... item Responsio ad Epi_tolam Isaaci Casauboni ", the Responsio being dated

in order to relieve Casaubon of the task- at p. 224 he quote» Casaubon's accouut of 
his father's last days. There is no rem ground for Pattison's remark that "few copies 
of Prideaux's pamphlet survive" (ut supra, p. 443)-

See Wood's Mth. Oxon., ii. 16, where he mentions that IIenry Jackson was editor of 
all the Orations except the first two which had been published before, see 587 R. The 
funeral oration was first printed in 16o7, see 16o 7 (Wake, 2nd ed.). From a biblio- 
graphical point of view there is great confusion in this and the two subsequent editions 
of Rainolds's Orations (Lond. I6O, and Lond. 1628). For instance Wood himself in 
his remarks about tlenry Jackson has confused the London edd. B. C.) with the 
Oxford one (A). 
In A the present volume) it is impossible to reckon tv, elve Orations, and the book 
falls into three parts (a) pp. [[6] + 77 + [I 7], signn. A-I ', sectt, i-iii, above- (b) pp.

The "I. V." is supposed to be John Verneuil sublibrarian of the Bodleian, who was 
a Frenchman by binh: bat hê was of Mgdalen and so hot ver), likely to dedicate 
his first work to the head of another college. The collocation of this work and 
another translation of Mornay (I612 M) in a 13odleian volume suggest the possibility 
of the saine person being translator of both.

by John Bames and alludes to the worh and undeserved obscurity of I3ailey's work. 
The whole book with the possible exception of the titlepage, was printed in London, 
the woodcuts being quite unknown at Oxford. Even the arms of the University on 
the titlepage are re-cut on wood. The first treatise is only a reprint, Dr. Bailey

with man's body and mind. Not a line of it was printed at Oxford, the woodcuts and 
type differ from Oxford ones, and even the device, which is like the smaller Oxford 
Amas of the University, is from a different block. The British Museum catalogue 
supplies the author's name.

(Wood's Aih. Oxon., ii. 384 n.). The authorship has been aserlbed to Thomas Lodge

These 26 " Theses or Rules conceming the Art Cfiticke " are, at p. 23, followed by 
examples. Dr. James paid two Dutchmen for transcription abroad at the rate of 2os.

theologians. The date cannot be precisely ascertained: the titles of the approvers

p. "38" is haz,e instead of haz, ing, and the next page differs in style of printing. The

to be a verbatim reprint. The signatures of this first ed. begin again with the second

See Wood's Ath. Oxon., iii. 654. where Wood quotes two letters about this book, 
one against it from the Archbishop of Canterbury's Secretary, one for it by Laud, which 
show that the book xvas in course of printing in May-June 163, but hot yet published 
on June 22. The error of pagination on pp. I3O-32 (" 4o-4 .- ") was due to the pre- 
/atory matter of the second part being supposed by the compositor to follow the 3rd 
leaf of what is now sheet s, instead of the 3rd leaf of sheet Q.

been generally regarded as the first, and the British Museum catalogue assigns it 
doubtfully to 16o 5. But it cannot be earlier than 1627 from the woodcuts used, and 
in that year first William Tumer printed books by himself. And it cannot be later 
than 2 Aug. I638 when Michael Sparke assigned this book to John Dawsou with one 
of 1631 and one hot earlier than 1631. Again, acomparison of 2o imprints of Michael

l,shed at Oxford. The first rive books had been issued by Sandys at least tw,ce 
(nd ed., Lond. x62). The large engraved titlepage (9x 5] in.) is similar to the 
title of the 626 London folio edition in general design, but different in detail. In 
the x632 engraving the title (nearly as on the printed leaf, as far as " G. S.", with 
date only and no imprint) is on a sheet held by and between two figures of Amor 
and Sapientia, and on the lower edge of the sheet is " ]:rancisco Clein lnv: Salamot 
Sauery sculî: ". Other emblematic figures and some Latin sentences fill the page. 
The British Museum copy has the engraved title, but the copy presented by the 
translator in 636 to the Bodlei, an ha hot. The book is singular in ha,«ing no small 
woodcut ornaments.

This book, as well as the saine author's èminine A[anarchie or history of tecs (see 
1634 B), are printed in a peculiar phonetic manner. The system is of considerable 
interest for the history of phonetic reforms of spelling and of English pronunciation, 
but ruade no way in practical use. The preface asserts the superiority of English in 
generality, by which he means wi:le geoga'aphical extent of usage, but laments the 
uncertain correspondence of sound and spelling, and the labour of learning the language, 
these two defects being due both to the want of alphabetical characters for certain 
sounds, and to historical changes of pronunciation, to which some persons adapt the old 
spelling and some do hOt. The author supplies the characters wanted, and counsels 


strictly phonetic spelling with certain exceptions where letters not strictly sounded 
indicate idiom or derivation. Generally an a_,pirated letter is represented by a line 
drawn through the letter ,OE -w, , but 1, and mute vowels by a substituted comma (as 
strang', tru', nam'ly)hen hot omitted as qestion). Also conjoined double e and 
double o are used, but the exceptions to the phonetic spelling would be, among others, 
a serious objection to this system of compromise. In I585 W. Bullokar published an 
edition of Asop's Fables in English, in a somewhat similar style of orthography.

Very rare. The book consists of the names of the numbers, the Church Catechism, 
and the eonjugation of French verbs, all in parallel Latin, English and French 
eolumns: and serres as an introduction to the English editions by John Anchoran 
(1631, 633, 1637, 1639 or 164% &c.) of J. A. Comenius's celebrated .[anua lingua- 
rum. See 634 S. The book is interesting as showing a connexion between William 
Tumer the Oxford printer (16:4-4o) and the London printer of the same name (16z3- 
35)- The Stationers' Register (ed. Arber, iv. 334) records the transfer of all the Lon- 
don Turner's rights in this book and the Clavis adportam (which ,,vas certainly printed 
by the Oxford Turner in 634, see 1634 S) to Michael Sparke on I î Mar. i63. 
l'either of these books was registered at Stationers' Hall, and so probably this book as 
well as the Clavis was printed at Oxford, though the imprint, type and woodcuts are

hot by themselves decisive. Probably the two Tumers are in fact identical, and the 
Oxford printing establishment, though founded a year later than the other (but as 
a bookseller's business not later than 16I.ï), was the chief one. It is curious that under 
these circumstances Turner was allowed to be a member of the Stationers' Company, 
which was particularly jealous of provincial presses.

A rare tract. See Wood's Fasti Oxon., ed. Bliss, i. 479- The incident related 
belongs to the year 1614, when the King of Persia put Ketaban to death for refusing 
to forsake Christianity. Some Jesuits are said to have dressed up a carcase as Keta- 
ban's, to have carried it to her son, and to have enjoyed much honour by the miracles 
which it wrought. Ultimately the real body arrived and the Jesuits vere banished. 
The translator was Thomas Crosfield of Queen's College, Oxford: and the Letter 
was published in Greek and Latin (at London ?) in 1632.

The occasion of these ,,'erses seems to have beeu an illness of the King late in 1632, 
Most of the poems are Latin, but four are English and one Greek. One of the prmters 
(\V. Tnrner) contributes some Latin verses. .An anagram oecurs in the title, and 
a chronogram (1632) on EL There are curions variations in issues, and marks (see the 
register of signatures) of the difficulty of obtaining and marshalling in order these col- 
lections of separate poems. The early issues of sheet A on A3r print " R. 1N'EVVLIN 
S. T. '.", the later and comraon ones insert C. C. C. after the naine, as also in AI v, 
A3 r (twice) : so "' ¢V'av. C." is inserted on A4*, cf. A2 v. An interesting copy is in the 
]3ritish Museum, being the one specially printed for the King's personal acceptance. 
The differences are that the book is on larger paper (the size even as bound and cut 
down being 7x 6in.), and the title entirely reprinted. Every line of the title is in 
larger type and spread out laterally, except the anagram itself and imprint : also 11. I 
and 4 are roman, not italic, and ll. 3, 4, 6, 7 are printed in gold. In 1. 6 the two Vs 


are lower case Us, and in 1. 7 Rex appears as REx. So too the device is altered, and 
it is amusing to see that the imprint, for fear of royal vengeance, is altered from the 
English " W. T." (William Turner) to the Latin "G.T."! This fact shows also that 
the lasl and not the first copy was struck off for the King, sheet A agreeing with this 
in being the later issue (see above).

the printer. There are some signs of an arrangement of the poems, those by great 
persons coming first, and the English last. Some copies of a later issue have an 
extra sheet after r (ii, four leaves) inserted, with more pocms, which necessitated a re- 
arrangement of sheet K.

and this was made part of the accusations against him at his trial (see Prynne's

independent of each other, there being no general titlepage, but yet being indissolubly 
welded together by the signatures, so that no part could be issued separately. The 
first edition seems to have been issued in 58î, the 4th at London in 6 9. The plan 
of the work is to assign a motto to every emperor, and then to discuss the motto and 
character of the person together : so that in effect the book is largely a discussion of 
proverbs of the nature of Erasmus's .ddagia.

See last item. The Argenis, which like the Satyricon is a political satire, was 
written and first published in 69.. The first discursus must have been rather out of 
date in this edition, for it suggests that the satire was written by William Barclay, 
father of the author. Argenis is a female character in the book, apparently represent- 
ing the hope of the bouse of Valois.

For the editor (d. I6o8) sec Wood's Fasti Oxon., ed. P, liss, i. 249. The author, 
a lawyer êducated at Cambridge, died in I597. The first edition, of which this is 
a repnnt slightly different in arrangement, was published al; I ondon in 6o 4, fol. : the 
3rd at the ltague in 1661 : the 4th at t9xford in I684, fol. These tables exhibit the 
whole status and administration of the Church of England in a synoptic form. The 
words underlined in the above title are in red ink, as well as Oxoni,, and anno sah«tis 
3AI)C.ALVIV. in the imprittt. The book is peculiar in form. The 16o 4 and 684 
editions may be called ordinary folios in shape: this one is made up of folio sheets 
(each containing two folio leaves) folded once and bound oblong, the intention t,eing 
that the binder should cut through the line of folding at foot and bind the book as if 
of quarto size, each oblong leaf thus bound being again awkwardly folded once so as 
to lie within an ordinary quarto binding. In the present edition the original 16 tables 
are arranged to form 28, and are printed on one side of the leaf only.

See Wood's,4th. Oxon., iii. 205, for the editor and book. The first edition was 
issued at London in 16o7: the present one was edited by dr. John Gregory, who has 
added many notes and the index, the author having died in 162- or I6{r--. The title 
in the copies seen (one on large paper given by the author) bas been sevn or pasted in 
separately, an original titlepage having been torn out. Perhaps this was in order to 
secure proper printing in red ink, for the words underlined in the ride above are in red 
ink, as are also in the imprint the words Oxford, University " z634., and Cure t'rivi- 
leg4o. The next editions were issued at Oxford in 166 and 1675 or 1676. This is 
the first Oxford book in which I bave noticed Anglo-Saxon type (Pica, pp. 184, 93, 
in the notes).

For the first work sec I612 S, of which this is a simple repeint. Twenty-seven 
Richard 5miths took their degree at Oxford between 155o and I6O 9, and the author of 
this book has hot yet been identified among them. 
The second work, which i» necessarily linked to the first by the siffnatures, thongh 
hot covered by the titlepage, is a repeint of 6o 9 D. No doubt the reprinter of these 
works thought the two R. 5.s identical, but they arc in ail probability not, the trans- 
lator of Molinaeus being Robert Stafford.

See Wood's Aih. Oxon., iii. 38. The Latin translation is in a singular rhythmieal 
rhyming metre, essentially decasyllabic iambics, but with an extra unaccented syllable 
at end, and with certain licences in resolving a long s)llable into two short. The 
rhymes are ababbcc. The first two lines for example are " Dolorem Troili duplicem 
narrare } Qui Priami Regis Trojoe fuit gnatus." Thi appears to be by far the earliest 
translation of any part of Chaucer into another language. Part of a commentary on 
the piece by sir F. Kinaston was printed in 1796. The English part is in black-lette:r, 
the Latin in italic Roman. One of the complimentary poems is in would-be Chaucerian 
style. The collation of this book is difficult: but probably it is this :signn. ., -1-, 
*, **-, ( ), -z, aa-.n '. "['I--**2 is matter foisted in, whieh prevented the truc fourth 
leaf of sign. . from forming, as it should, the first leaf of the Latin translation (pp. l-2 
of the 1st book). Accordingly one of two plans was adopted : either the 4th leaf of 
sign. . was torn off, and a new 4th leaf inserted where the translation begins (which 
seems to have been usually donc, and which gives the collation above, assuming the 
existence at one rime of an A4): or the tom-off fourth leaf was itself awkwardly 
pasted on to sign. 2**.

Pentecost, and a longer slip pasted at the foot containing a note about the teaching of 
Arabic and Medicine. 
The chart is usually round folded and pasted in the I638 edition of the abridged 
Statutes: but a copy in the Univer-ity Archives is pasted belween the two columns of 
the 1633 Synolsis Stalutorum, which in combination with the dedication quoted above 
suggests that it was first issued in ,635. a natural year for it, when the intérest in the 
new Code of Statutes was fresh. There is nothing to suggest tbat it*,vas printed away 
from Oxford. The device in the title is a well-made rel,resentation of the University 
arms with the motto "Sapientioe et felicitatis". 
Thomas Crossfield of Queen's certainly edited the 638 Saluta sel«cla, and may 
bave issued the Synosis (which is in his style), and possibly thêrcfore the I'2nO,c.lo.cêdia. 
At any rate he took the plate of the Incycloiordia and used it in I638. It s m his 
own copy of the StMuta seleca that the altered plate is round (see above); and the 
note about Arabic and Medicine is there in his own handwriting i,-eceded by a ¢, just 
as in the printed slip.

This is the first Latin grammar printed at Oxford since I518, and is issued " Cum 
Privilegio." The grammar itself was already, in its Latin form, more than a hundred 
years old, and many editions of it had been printed. Other Oxford editions were issued 
at least in 1651 , 1672-?. 1675 , I679, 1687, 1692. t699 ' 17o9, 1714, 1733. For William 
Lily see Wood's .4th. Oxon., ed. Bliss, i. 32. The signatures cotmect the two parts of 
the book. 
The importance of this issue is considerable. In consequence of disputes between 
John Lichfield and Turner, archbp. Laud's attention had been called to the state of 
printing at Oxford, and the absence of any such printing privileges as were posscssed 
by Cambridge. A charter of privileges was accordingly obtained, dated 12 Nov. 1632 , 
confirmed and amplified by another dated 3 Match 163- . These allowed the 
University to print Bibles, Prayerbooks, Grammars, Almanacs, &c., which had till then 
been the monopolies of the London Stationers' Company and the University Pres at

Cambridge. No Bibles or Prayerbooks were issued at Oxford till 1675, but this 
Grammar and three Almanacs (see 637 B, C, and W.) raised the standard of revolt 
against monopoly. On 2o March 63.  the Stationers' Company agreed to pay the 
University £2oo a year, if it would agrêe hOt to issue the classes of books in question, 
and no further difficulties arose till after the Restoration.

was altered in the 2nd edition, though the plate is practieally identical, it may be 
taken as the date of the book also.

engraved picture of a crown on a board supported at the four corners by a prince, two 
princesses and an infant in a cradle, all upon a large pedestal. Beneath are six Latin 
verses, beginning " Quam stabilis Quadrata," and then " Ita augustissimo Domino suo 
vovet humillima ancilla Acad. Oxon." Curiously the engraving cannot possibly be 
correct, since the place of prince James is taken by a female figure ! Perhaps for this 
reason the plate was soon suppressed : it is certainly now very rarely round.

John Booker was a prolific Almanac maker : lais ,4lmanac and Prognoslication was 
issned from x63 to 1649: his Cdestial ObsevaNons from 165 to 66z, and the 
]èlescoium from 659 to 1676, but the dates may be capable of extension, and as 
Booker died in 667, the 7ëlescoph«m must have been carried on by a successor under 
his naine. Only this one issue was printed at Oxford, since the Stationers' Company 
bought out the University's right of printing this and certain other kinds of book in 
March 63-, ste I636 L, and t?ooker, lVyberd below. The underlined words in the 
Iitle are printed in red, as well as much of the woodcut border (which bears the signs 
of the zodiac, the royal arms, and an open book), the words "Oxford," "to the famous 



Universitie. 1637." in the imprint, and many words in the text. The same astrological 
woodcut oecurs as in the Wyberd, but in a more injured state, sho ing that Wyberd had 
precedence in point of date. Booker's Almanac for x636 ,,vas printed at Cambridge.

the volume. Sign. Y consists of one leaf only, the other three having been obviously 
intended for a one-leaf title and two-leaf dedication of the sermon following (no. x in 
the above divisions, really the eleventh sermon), but apparently they were accidentally 
omitted. Some were already printed, those before printed at Oxford being nos. i (see

Scheibler's Aletaîhysica was first issued in 1617, and reissued at Oxford in I665, as

(see Wood's Ath. Oxon., ed. Bliss, iv. 336), which were reissued in 658. The edition 
of 1638 is simply a reissue of the sheets of the 267 edition, with different imprint and 
date on the first titlepage, and " Meta-" on the first titlepage altered to " Meta-." Some 
woodcut diagrams occur in the Exercitationes : in which also the sections change from

The first edition of this work by Emanuele Tesauro (b. 1581 ) was published in 6I 9 
at Milan, and a third at the same place in 643. Backer mentions doubts whether the 
author of this work is identical with the Jesuit who bore the same names. The book 
contains Latin epigrams on the Cœesars, and miscellaneous poems. The occurrence of 
Herbert's poem in the volume is singular. I have seen a copy in which the first line 
of the title contained " R. P." only, which probably indicates an early issue.

issued, doubled in size, in 642. The author was tmder-librarian at the Bodleian, 
and had compiled this list for private use : nearly all the books referred to in the work 
have their Bodleian references affixêd, the arrangement being in the ortier of the books 
of the Bible, the Apocrypha being excluded. The fact that some of the books were 
hot in the library "stirred up some well-wishers ... who deprived themselves to 
furnish this Place with some bookes that were wanting" (Preface of 2ndedition), among 
whom was Robert Burton.

able controversy, Chillingworth hadng reeently reverted from Roman Cathoieism fo 
Protestantism, and the form of the book being that of an answer to part I of M. Wilson's 
Aler O, and truth or Charity mahttayn'd (1634 , itself an answer to Potter's IVant of 
çharity (see 1633 P). The controversy is well described in the Dict. of National 
Biography. There was a suspicion that Wilson obtained advance copies of the sheets 
of this book as it went through the press, see Laud's History of the Chancellor»hip 
under the year, where are also gien the archbishop's vievs about the advisability of 
Çhillingworth answering the second part also of Wilson's book. The present voltme 
s headed " Part i." throughout. The issue of this volume with an imprint showing 
that it was published in Londou is said to have some slight changes, but they are not 
easily to be round, and in general the t', o is.-ues appear to be identical. The description 
of the Errata and their cause shows that it was the custom, at least at Oxford, for 
authors to redse their proofs--which has been recently denied.

This is the first edition of the selected Statntes, the beginning of a long series, and 
was compiled by Thoma Crossfield of Queen's College. Other editions were issued 
in J66I, and with the title "Parecboloe" in 1671 , 1674, 168-, 1693, 17o5, 71o, 
1721, 17oE9, 74o, 756, 177, 784, 794, I8o8, 85, 82o, 828, 83 o, I835, 1838, 
184o, 184 I, 1842, 1843, 1845, 1846, and no doubt in some other years, especially after 
183o: the book was in fact reprinted whenever the stock in hand was exhausted. 
Wharton's Second Uoh«me of he Remains of... IVilliam Zaud . . . , under the date, 
proves that it was issued in Jan. 163z,. A small folded sheet "Indiculus Statutorum", 
a plan of them arranged by subject and bearing the signature a2, should follow the 
titlepage, and in some copies the large Encydopœedia, described in 1635 O, is inerted 
to face p. 16 or -o: but the book can hardly be pronounced imperfect, if this plate is 
wanting. The signatures of the prefatory matter are peculiar: the first two leaves 
(blank, and ride) form a section of themselves, and also the next two, not counting the 
folded leaf, and this even in large paper copies. So too sign. Q« is divided into two 
sers of two and foar leaves respectively ! The 4th leaf of P is presumably blank and 
perhaps always tom off. The underlined words in the above title are printed in red, 
as well as " Excusa cure Licentiâ," and " pro Guil: Webb," in the imprint.

delivered on Nov. 5, 638, dashed the hopes which the Roman Catholics seem to have 
entertained of the conversion of Taylor to their faith. Wood asserts (ut supra, 782) 
that "several thmgs were put in[to the sermon] against the Papists by the then vice-

The tiret three parts of Balzac's Letters were printed at London in 1634 ¢part 1, 
translated by William Tyrwhitt) and I638 (parts . and 3, translated by sir Richard 
Baker). The present volume is a venture by the printer, who bas prefixed some letter, 
papers, and a Latin poem ail connected with the quarrel between Balzac and the J.esuit 
Franciscus Garassu«, in which Louis xiii intervened as a conciliator. There s an 
engraved title by W. Marshall, in which kings and theoloffians do honour to Balzac, 
the title being " A new collection of Epistles of Mons : de Balzae, being the fourth and 
last volume. Newly translated", with impr. I92. The range of Balzac's letters is 
from 1631 to 1637.

See Wood's Fasti Oxon., ed. Bliss, i. 41I ; but nothing seems to be known of the 
author at present. Tbe book is a Latin grammar in English, for the use ofwhich latter 
language the author excuses himself. The sheets of this work, omitting the prefatory 
matter and with a different style of title and imprint, were reissued at Oxford in 1641. 
The author divides grammar into Rudiment (grammar proper, divided into Elementary 
and Accidentary) and Regiment (syntax).

this play is laid at Sardis. An account of the performance at Christ Church, at which 
the scenic arrangements seem to have been very elaborate, will be round in Wood's 
Annals under the year 1636.

This is a reprint of the 1627 or 1631 Antwerp edition, being itself the third. The 
scope of the work may be gathered from the definition of "Meteora" as being 
phenomena produced by vapour (rain, &c.), or by exhalation (fiery, as lightning and 
falling stars: or non-fiery, as winds), or by both clouds). Fromondus lived from 
587 to 654, chiefly at Louvain.

tantum non sepultum.' The author died in 1613- It is curious that in Moss's AIanual 
of classical bibliograthy (Lond., 1825, vol. i, p. l î) this book is called " Westerman, 
Commentaria in Èthica Aristotelis. Oxon. 4to. I64O," with a reference to \Vood's ,4th. 
Oxon., ed. Bliss, ii. z4. The explanation is that H'es/erman heads the column in 
\Vood's work, becanse the account of \Villiam \Vesterman follows Brerewood on that 
column- but the ascription deceived even so acute a bibliographer as the late professor 
Chandler in his List of editions of the Nicomachean Ethics (Oxf. I8î8).

For an account of the earlier editions, see Wood's ArA. Oxon. il., 422, and 1628 C. 
The present êdition closely resembles the London ones of 1633 and 1638. Probably 
the " N. H." vho edited the next article below, edited this also, Carpenter having 
died in 1628. The work is e'idently intended to be read with a view to the political 
circumstances of the time, under the disguise of dealing vith " a sacred tragedy" from 
Old Testament history.

This is an anonymous history of Britain from the earliest times. The editor, 
M(atthew) H(unt), does hot mention the fact, that an undated edition was printed at 
London by Henry Bynneman (who published from 1 566 to I587), with the title " De 
rebus gestis Britanniœe commentarioli tres. Ad Omatissimum Virum M. Henricum 
Broncarem Armigerum E.b.", from which it has been conjectured that the author's 
initials ere ".E.S." The first words of the text are " Britannia est Insula natura 
triquetra." The naine of Clain is given in the British Museum catalogue as the author 
of an Amberg edition of 1603, and in Thomas Thorpe's Catalogue of books (I81  
p. 51 an edition printed at ttamburg in I598 is mentioned under the same name, but 
I can find no account of the author, who probably lived at Amberg. Some bave 
ascribed the book to John Clapham, who publibhed an English tlislory of£ngland 
till the coming of the Saxons, in 16o2 and 16o6.

published al Toulouse in i6a2, uuder the title Trait de l'essence et gu[rison de Famour, 
and at Paris in I623 as De la maladie d'amour, ou melancAolie erotifu«. If Robert 
Burton was aequainted with the first edition of this book, as he well may have been, 
there can be little doubt that he has taken or imitated the general method and treat- 
ment of the subject, in his Anatomy of A[elancholy: but the French author is surpassed 
on his own ground. The research is greater and the felieities of language more 
numerous and in Burton, while the plan is also further and distinctively 
elaborated. There lS no mention of Burton's book in the poems prefixed to this 
translation. The words underlined in the above title are printed m red, as well as 
" Oxford," and "sold by Edward Forrest. 64o." in the imprint.

Philip Papillon of Exeter eollege, declares that the play is laere printed vdthout the

There is no bibliography of the numerous works of Er3"cius Puteanus, but the Suada 
Attica was first published at Louvain in 6t5, and the ]aloestra in 1611. They 
contain orations and exercises delivered at Milan and Louvain. The talstra Bon 

3I«ntis is properly a hall at Louvain, where some of these were delivered, and in 
another sense a literary club which met there for debate recitafions and the like. See

Vesperijs discutiendoe, lul. 1o. 16o2," followed by some belonging to the Comitia, and 
some Law quaesliones bêlonging to bot.h, and by a specimen of dr. John King's treat-

Pliny and Lystrius. 

Something can be added to the account. The two original books in dispute are 
in the John Rylands (Spencer) Library at Manchester, and the lacus classiclts for their 
history is naturally in Dibdin's 2ibliotheca Stenceria,za (I814'), ii. 271, iii. 4I: 
where wiI1 be round a reproduction (in t)pe) of the two titles and colophons. Of the 
Pliny Dibdin states that one George Smith passed it on to Van Damme, frc.,m whom 
Askew bought it for fifteen guineas. With respect to the Lystrius, it appears that the 
"Mr. Dent" who purchased it at the Askew sale was an agent or pseudonym of 
Mr. Alchorne. The volume bears a manuscript note pretending to be from 
"i. Korsellis" at Haarlem in I4îI, stating that the book came to him from his 
brother Frederick.

This interesting title is found on a fragment of two leaves discovered by Mr. R. G. C. 
Procter in New College Library at Oxford. in Aug. x89I, and now marked "Auct.V. 16," 
fol. 3- The verso of the title is occupied with a woodcut of the arms of Henry VIII, 
with supporters, two angels with scroll, &e. The second leaf is marked A 2, and con- 
tains a dedication and certain definitions, ail part of the Additiones Mauritii. The 
book was no doubt printed in London, but sold in Oxford by Henricus Jacobi, who 
died in the latter city towards the end of 1 514, intestate, see p. uî'a. From an interest- 
ing account of Jacobi in tTibliograpica, pt. I (894) , by Mr. E. G. Duff, it appears that 
Jacobi, after publishingin London from I5o5 to 5, came to Oxford in SIe or 53 
see pp. 95,   of the account). 
This entry and that of  5o6 should strictly be in a list by theml',es, being neither 
'" lost" nor "fictitious."

A curious account of an abortive effort on the part ofEdmtmd Bollifant and three

A dal at end : 

An explanation of this reprint will be found in Arber's Transcri/t of the Stationers" 
I¢eisters II (1875), p. 793 (a petition from N. Newton, E. Bollitant, and others, in 
the winter of ISSU), from which it appears that John Wight, printer, of London, who 
had entered a copy of his edition of the book at Stationers' Hall on :8 Aug. 5q4, sent 
his son to Oxford to buy up the whole of Barnes's reprint: which was done. But 
Barnes promptly printed "txvo )mpressions more," of which the present volume i» no 
doubt one. Possibly the preceding art. is the other re-impression, and Wight effectually 
suppressed the whole first edition.

(Supplementary to and corrective of, pp. I-4.1 

THE Oxford Press of the fifteenth century is a peculiarly interesting 
one. At present fifteen works are known to belong to it, ran#ng in date 
from " 1468" (4787) to I486 (i48-?). Not only is its origin quite 
independent, so far as is known, of Caxton's printing, not only are new 
products of the press still from time to time discovered, but the battle 
which bas been waged about the date of its establishment bas ruade the 
" 1468" book a veritable typographical battleground, and in Henr) 
Bradshaw's opinion a touchstone of intellectual acumen. 
In the first place some details of the various books will be ven: then 
an account of the type and presswork : and lastly a description of each 
book supplementary to, and corrective of, that contained on pp. 1-4.

Seven kinds of type were used, the use of which can be seen on p. 2:38. 
Facsimiles of all of them are given in plates I I-V. 
These obviously divide the books into three groups. In the first 
group of three (" 1468"-I4-) only type no. i is used. In the second 
group of four (I48o-82, Theodoric Rood) only types 2- 3 are round. In 
the last group consisting of eight (i483-i48--, T. Rood and Thomas 
Hunte) only types 4-7 are used, except that the peculiar black initial 
type (no. 3) is occasionally still used. 
The press was of course a wooden hand-screw one, vhich .c-as at first 
employed to print one page at a rime (Jerome), but after the first book 
two pages and perhal,s later four vere struck off together. The earliest 
,, .o (sec an 
printing press of which we have an engraving is as late as o 
article in 27z'Mgographz'ca, t894 , no. -',), but there was great conservatism 
in detail, and from the early enavings and such researclaes as those 
which Blades, De Vinne, Talbot Reed, and others have ruade, we know 
many of the details of working in the earliest days. 

Character :Cologne black. 

Body :--English, nearly (i 0 lines -- I-}'-- in.

In modern English o 

Used in the Jerome, Aretinus and Aedius, with no other. 

The "upper case" (to use a modern expression) consisted of at 
least i6 divisions, G, J, K, L, T, U, W, X, Y, Z hot being used, and P 
seldom in the Jerome, H being there used for both II and P. This misuse 
is not found in the other two books. On the other hand there are tvo 
forms of C, E, N, and Q, both probably mixed in the same division. Q 
is in the Jerome almost always .0 (a peculiarity round in some orna- 
mental IISS., from the convenience of extending the tail into the margin), 
in the Aretinus and Aegidius always Q: the letter is however identical 
in all three books, but being on a square body it is in the Jerome turned 
one quarter round. 

The "lower case" consisted of at least i21 divisions. Of tte simple 
unmodified letters k and z are wanting, and except in the Jerome j t but ij 
is round in all, colligated). There are two forms of p, r, and three of s, the 
two p's and r's being used indiscriminately, but the two s's (final)and the 
f (initial and medial) having their proper use. Of colligated or modified 
letters there are at least eighty-three, and of other symbols eleven (for -et, 
&, con-,-us [two], id est, full stop, colon, ?). Of these i2I about 95 are 
common to ail three. The signs of proess are as follows : 
In the Jerome, contrasted with the other two, Q is except in two places 
.ç), H is generally used as P, and I have not elsewhere noticed B, or j used 
by itself. On the other hand in the two others, and hot in the Jerome, 
are round an extra short t in which the perpendicular stroke hardly appears 
at all above the horizontal line, and eleven new forms, including le, ff, 
and pp in colligation. The Q and P are rightly used, alwa)'s. 


So too in the Jerome and Aretinus compared with the Aegidius we find 
that q is printed too high up, being in fact an inverted b, or, more accu- 
rately, an inverted broken h occasionally used for b. In the Jerome 
this is almost always the case, in the Aretinus as often as not, in the 
Aegidius hardly ever. It may be accidental that B and H and three 
minor modified letters are not found in the short Aegidius, that w (in wlt 
=vult) is only found in the Jerome, .]- (-id est) only in the Aretinus : but 
the occurrence of.e (-- ?) and of printing in red ink onO, in the Aegidius, is 
hot insignificant. 
The relative order of the three ma), therefore be assumed to be as 
above indicated. 

O,igin of Ihe O't"e. 
It ma), be taken as certain that as Çaxton's type is based on 13ruges 
models, so the first Oxford type is uhimately derived from Cologne. Ulric 
Zel began printing there at least as early as 466, and the general 
resemblance to his letters is clear. The likeness is still nearer xvhen we 
follow Zcl's influence on Arnold ther Hoernen (Cologne, from 47o), 
Richard Paffroet of Cologne (Deventer, from 477), and especially 
a little-known Cologne printer named Gerard ten Raem de Bercka, whose 
only dated book is of 478. John of Westphalia (Alost and Louvain, 
from 1473) and Jacobus de Breda, a successor of Paffroet at Deventer, also 
supply similarities. In the case of Gerard we actually find, besides 
a close general similarity, the saine misuse of H as P. Unfortunately no 
works printed by him, except the dated .Modes Colendi and an undated 
Aeso/,us, are at prescrit known, so that it must not be assumed that 1478 

is his earliest or only date. 
It is at present also unsafe

letters j only occurs in colligation with i (as ij), and there are two forms 
of r, s (s, f and y. There are about 93 colligated or modified letters. 
Unfortunately it is very difficult to institute a close comparison of the 
use of letters, so as to establish a proper order of the books, in conse- 
quence of the fragmentary state of the IIilo and the Latin Grammar. 
The lIilo can be clearly separated from the rest: the type is sflaced, so 


yet be said to be quite certainly printed at Oxford. The AIes and Latte- 
burius are hardly to be distinguished in the use of type, but I havê 
observed w only in the Latteburius and Grammar. 
The origin of the type is probab]y fo be looked for near Cologne, from 
whence came Theodoricus Rood, the avowed printer of the Ales, and 
,«,here a Theodoricus, who may probabl) be identified with Rood, printed 
in I485-6 in a type smaller than, but similar to, the present one. The 
narrow stilted look of the letters and the semicircular sweep in front of 
the A are noticeable features. Henry Bradshaw detected a similarity 
between this type and that of Arnold ther Hoernen at Cologne.

. Jerome (" r468," see p. I). 

Tlae treatise of Tyrannius Rufinus on the Apostles' Creed, here 
ascribed to St. Jerome, was undoubtedly the first product of the Oxford 
press. It bears the date of 17 Dccember, i468, as the da)" on vhich the 
printing was finished. The colopton is clearly printed and bears no 
mark of haste, nor does it show the smallest trace of alteratîon in an)" of 
the copies seen by the present writer. Saturday is a reasonable day on 
v,hich to conclude a work. A facsimile of the colophon is given in

In 664 Richard Atkyns, a Gloucestershire gentleman of some position, 
and educated at Balliol, issued a book, the title of which sets forth 
with unusual clearness the object of the volume :" The Original and 
Growth of Printing: Collected Out of History, and the ]?ecords of this 
Kingdome. Wherein is also Demonstrated, That Printing appertaineth to 
the Prcrogahve Rot'al; and is a Flower of the Crown of tçgl«ud. By 
Richard Atkyns, .Esq : " (London, printed by John Streater, for the Author, 
»lr)c,.xiv: quarto : pp. [I2]+ 24). Atkyns's object was to recommend 
himself to Charles Ii's attention by proving that printing was a royal 
privilege : and for this it was very desirable that there should be evidence 
of the introduction of the art into England under royal protection. The 
testimony of Stowecorroborated by Itowellthat " William Caxton of 
London, Mercer," introduced it in '47, was unsuitable. Atkyns, how- 
ever, came upon a copy of the " 468" Oxford book, and "the saine 
most worthy Person who trusted me with the aforesaid Book, did also 
present me with the Copy of a Record and Blanuscript in Lambeth- 
House, heretofore in his Custody, belonging to the _ee.'q (and not to any 
particular Arch-Bishop of Canlcrbur_y) ; the substance whereof was this 
(though I hope, for publique satisfaction, the Record it self, in its due rime, 
wil! appear)." Then ensues the following story : 

Thomas tTourchier, Arch-Bifhop of Canlerbury, moved the then King 
the 6th) to ufe all poffble means for procuring a Printing-Mold (for fo 'twas 
there called) to be brought into this Kingdom; the King (a good Man, and 


mueh gNen to Works of this Nature) readily hearkned to the Motion ; and taking 
private Advice, how to effecCt His Defign, concluded it could not be brought 
about without great Secrecy, and a confidemble Sum of Money given to fuch 
Perfon or Perlons, as would draw off fome of the Work-men from tararlein in 
]-[ollaut, where John C«thenberg had newly invented it, and was laimfelf per- 
fonally at Work : 'Twas refolv'd, that lefs then one Thoufand Marks wotald hot 
produce the defir'd Effec"t : Towards wh)ch Sure, the faid Arch-Bifhop prefented 
the King with Three Hundred 3Iarks. The Money being now prepared, the 
Management of the Dfign was committed to _Mr. 2çobert Turwur, who then 
x.:s of the Roabs to the King, and a Perron mo in Favour with Him, of any 
of his Condition: Mr. 'rnaur took to his Affiffanee 3If. Caxlon, a Citizen of 
good Ab)lit)es, who Trading much into zarolland, might be a Creditable Pretenee, 
as well for his going, as ftay in the Zaw-Countries: Mr. Turnour was in Difguife 
(his Beard and Hair fhaven quite off) but Mr. Caxton appeared kown and 
publique. They having received the faid Sure of One Thoufand Marks, went 
firft to A»oE,:rdam, then to Zo'd'n, not dariog to enter z-ararlein it felf; for the 
Toxn was very jealous, having imprifoned and ŒEpprehended divers Perlons, who 
came from othêr Parts for the faine purpofe : They tLaid till they had fpent the 
xvhole One Thoafand Marks in Gifts and Expences : So as the King w-as fairt to 
fend Five Hundred Marks more, 3Ir. Turuour having xritten to the King, that 
he had almoff done his Vork ; a I3argain (as he fa)d) being ffruck betwixt him 
and two 11ollanders, for bringing off one of the W ork men. who fhould fufficiently 
difeover and teach this New Art: At la, with ranch ado, they got off one of 
the Under-Workmen, xvhofe Naine was trred«rick Corfells ,or rather Çorfellis, 
who late one .Night noie from his .Fellows in Difguife, into a Veffel prêpared 
before for that purpofe; and fo the \Vind t, favouring the Defign brought him 
fafe to Zondon. 
'Txas hot thought fo prudent, to fer him on Work at Ztmdon, (but by the 
Arch-Bifhops meanes, who had been Vice-Chancellor, and afterwards Chancellor 
of the Univerfity of O.ron) Corfel/is was carr3'ed with a Guard to Oxon; wh)ch 
Guard conffantly wateh'd, to prevent Corfellis frorn any poffible E_cape, till he 
had ruade good his Promife, m teaehing how to Print: So that at Oxford 
Printing was firft let up in England, wh)ch was before there was any Printing- 
l'ress, or Printer, in 1france, Sîain, ZZa/y, or Germany, (except the City of «brentz)

tobe otheravife, that City gaining that Art by the 13rother of one of the Workmen 
of l[arlein, v, ho had leamt it at Home of his Brother, and aIter fer up for himfeIf 
at Alentz. 
This Pref at Oxon was at leaft ten years belote there was any Printing in 
Europe (except at ]tarlein, and AIettz)where alfo it was but new born. Thi» 
}'refs at Oxford, was afterwards found inconvenient, to be the foie Printing-place 
of England, as being too far from Zondot, and the Sea: Whereupon the King 
fer up a Prefs at St. Albans, and another in the Abby of Hé.flminster, where 
they Printed feveral 13ookes of Divinity and Phyfick, (for the King, for Reafon» 
beff knoxsna to himfelf and Cour:cil permitted then no Law-Books to be Printed ; 
nor did anv Printer exercife that ART, but onely fuch a were the Kings fworn

Printing thts brought into A?, was mort Gracioufly received by the King, 
and moft cordially entertained by the Church, the Printers having the Honour to 
be fworn the King's Servants. and the Favour to Lodge in the very 13ofome of 
the Church ; . in lIé.flmioEer, St. Albans, Oxon, &e. 

As no one believes in this story it is hot worth wh)le to do more than 
to point out that no corroboration of it has ever been found, (much less 
the orinal record discovered), that Henry VI was deposed 4 3Iarch  46, 
and that the type shows no resemblance to that of Haarlem. Nor does 
the rest of the book concern us. The tale, however, in the absence of 
contradiction, obtained some vogue, so that we find for instance in Layer 
Iarney church in Essex some such inscription as the following "Proe-

There is no question that this clumsy forgery of Atkvns has had its effect 
in befogging the subject to which it relates, and has predisposed critics to 
suspect the date of the first Oxford book. 

II. Trlw risPt:'rrI i,'rw, " 1468." 

The first who threw doubt on the recorded date of the Jerome was 
Conyers 5Iiddleton in his Dissertation on the origin of Pri»thzg published 
in I735, and since then the opinion that I468 is an error for 1478 (an 
x having dropped out of "3tcccc.xxvm") has steadily gained ground 
with the advance of critical methods, until authorities like Bradshaw 
and Blades and Duff have corne to regard the question as settled. The 
only two separate and formal defences of the date (not counting inciden- 
tal passages in books) are a 3IS. in the Guildhall Library in London, in 
a volume of Stukeley's 1),zloEograph;z l?rilannica marketl B. 2. I, perhaps 
written in about 177o, and S. W. Singer's Some Accounlofthe book/,rinledat 
Oa;tgrd in .zCCCCLXVZzz (London, 1812, 5 ° copies for private distribution). 
a work which the author subsequently called in as far as he was able. In 
the former the arguments are of a general character, such as that if, as 
lIiddleton asserted, the King had hot leisure to attend to such matters 
during Civil War, the archbishop had, and that Caxton's silence counts 
for nothing in the general obscurity which surrounds the earliest printing 
presses. The Corsellis story is accepted. Singer is more scientific, as 
befits the later date, and adduces several of the technical arguments which 
ma)" still be used. 
It is now time to state the present aspect of the dispute, and to ascer- 
tain how far the date " 1468" is hOt only dubious but untenable. The 
arguments against the date ma)" be stated in presumed order of their 
cogency, with the remarks on the other side which they severally suggest. 

The presence of Signalures. 

The Jerome presents to our eyes the ordinary signatures to which we 
are accustomed in fifteenth-century books, that is to sa), the marks a j, a ij, 
a iii, a iiij on the recto of each of the four leaves which form the first half 
of the sections of eight leaves (sixteen pages) of which the book is 
composed. These are placed just below the last letters of the printed 
page, close under them. Now the earliest known book with a date in 
which signatures elsewhere occur in this developed form is an F..vposilb 
Decalogi, by Johannes Nider, printed at Cologne bY Koelhoff in 147 , the 
next being a Cologne book by F. de Platea in i474. The aro-ument i 
that it is extremely unlikely that an isolated printer in a provincial town 

in England should make such a discovery and advance, and that the next 
simi[ar book should be a German one four years later J. 
What may be called the common ground of the discussion on this 
point is well explained in Blades's tooks in Chains (Lond. 89-'2), pp. 
85-122, in a paper on Signatures. He shows that the idea of signatures 
in manuscripts is as old as books themselves, but that in manuscripts 
the marks, being in writing and intended for the binder's eye alone, 
were naturally, as a rule, at the foot or corner of the page, and often 
eut off in the process of binding. When printing came in, the obvious 
difficulty was to print marks so far from the test of the printed page as to 
be cut off in binding. This diftScuhy was met in two ways : either the 
sinatures were wrRten in at the extreme foot (from  462 ?), or the signa- 
tures were stamped on by hand ith single t5pes (from t473 ?)- Some 
printers, however, did mariage by care to print signatures far from the 
text (474 on?). Ultimatelyin a single case in i472 and ith increa:ing 
frequency from 474 printers round that the essential ugliness of printed 
signatures close to the page was counterbalanced b)" the utility and con- 
venience of the change, and out modern system was begun. 
Now, it must be constantl), rcmembered that the entire weight of dis- 
proof lks with those who dispute the printed date. This is xvhy it is 
simply amusing to read Blades's sage u ords on the subject of this i47_, 
book with normal printed signatures. H e is pledged to renounce the 
Oxford date, but he finds it awkward that there £r an isolated book of 
 472 in precisely the saine category--with the saine want of precedent, 
the saine absence of imitators, the saine forlorn appearance. Observe how 
he deals with it (p.   6 oir the book above cited) :" This is a puzzling 
book, for it is at least two years earlier than any other book so siffned. 
In this city, too. Il. e. Ltibeck"-] many works were issued with I S. signatures 
with a later date than this. It is dangerous to assert that a book is 
wrongly dated because you cannot make it fit into a bibliographical 
theory ; but I feel inclined, from the general aspect of the book, to date 
it as t 482, rather than t 472." And )et a very high authoritv on typo- 
graphy assures me that the book is undoubtedly of t4721 ;Vhat then 
prevents the tentative and isolated experiment of Cologne from having 
a similar tentative and isolated forerunner, even at Oxford? We 
may remember too that in the infanc); of printing it was common 
to detect errors as the book went through the press, and often the printer 
him.elf corrected an error with his t,en, as in the colophon of the Aegidius 
(sec p. i). Or a reader would do the saine. But it is believed that in no 
copy of the Jerome is there any attempt to correct or even throw 
suspicion on the date. There is the date, plain and detailed, and it is 
allowable to wait for scientific proof before it is abandoned. A priori 
considerations bave force, but they are liane fo sudden overthrow. 
Clearly the consideration of signatures alone cannot avail to disprove 
the date of the Jerome. But much more remains. 

 As these pages pass through the press I am informed by Mr. E. G. Dtaff that 
Lord Crwford possesses an edition of Horace's Opuscula printed in " 47o" with 
2 Blades was under the erroneous impression that Koelhoff printed at Libeck, instead 
of Cologne : where also books with manuscript signatures occur later than t472. 


2. St'gris of progress. 
It is said that, if we consider the interval between 468 and 4 79, we 
shall reasonably expect definite signs of progress. On the contrary, the 
first three Oxford books are printed with tte saine type, with similar 
ignatures, with the saine sized page and the saine numbcr of lines in 
a column. " In fact," says Blades in the A nt/qua3,, vol. iii, no. i3, Jan. 
188 I, in an article on The Ft)'sl l'rt'th'ng" )9ress al O.rford " if a leaf of one 
was extracted and inserted in anotler it vould, typogral,hically, excite no 
remark." .\Talura nt'ht'Ifact'[ p.t" sal[um, and we are accustomed to apply 
the idea of evolution and development to every art and trade. It is 
assertt:d also that there is no otler case of the cessation of a i;ress for 
over ten )'ears. But cessation of printing for such a time is not unknown. 
No book was produced at Bamberg between  462 and 48o, or at Caen 
between 148o and 5oo, or at Brussels betweên I484 and 5oo, or at 
Haarlem for some years after 1486, or at Saragossa afier 1475 till  485 ? 
5Ioreover thê only êarl), printing known at Tavistock is two books in 
I5 5 and 1534. "I'he saine t_j'/e and td«//cal zz,oodcu/s are round in the 
two, with an interval of nine )ears. And where tlêre is cessation, it is 
obvious that we may be content "«'ith fewer signs of advance v,hen ",,,ork 
is resumed at the saine press with the same type, than if the-activity had 
beên continuous, or if the instruments were changed. 
But this question of progrêss is a plain issue. Are there no signs of 
advance in the two later books comparêd with the earlier one ? 
The first book oftên has an unevênnêss at the right-hand êdge of 
a column (in z8 l,ages out of 84). In the other two it is always perfectly 
even 1. Again, the Jêrome starts printing on sign. a i, whêrêas the other 
two start with a blank lêaf, the printing beginning on a -". Again, in the 
Jerolne there is a peculiar misuse of the capitals H and Q (see p. 24), 
not round in the following books. And lastly, to omit smaller matters, 
there is the decided and important fact that wherêas in the Jerome êach 
page was printed separately, in the Aegidius and Aretinus two pages were 
printed at a rime. 

3. The 

Of the palmary arguments against the date, one still remains. The 
first Oxford type prêsents a rêmarkable similarity to that usêd by 
Gerard ten Raen de Bercka (see p. 24"-'), and his only dated book at 
presênt known is of I478. '-i'here s certainly a real connexion bêtwêen 
the two founts, but we know so extremêly little of this printer that it is at 
present unsafe to base any conclusion on his work. The typographical 
genêalogy of the early printers of the Netherlands and Gêrmany has not 
yet been fully drawn out, and of the 478 l[odus Confilcndi(Hain   455), 
which is here in question, only two copies w//h lhe d«le are known, 
one in the John R)lands (Spencer) library at 5Ianchester and one on the 
continent. On this point we shall doubtless know more in time, but at 
present we are bound to suspend our judgment. 

 In 467 Ulric Zel of Cologne (see p. 242 ) vas unacquainted with the setting-rule, 
which ruade evenness easy: he adopted it n x468-9, but Colard Mansion at Bruges 
hot till 478 (Blades, .Boobs in Chai»fs, p. I 8). 


4. 3listakes of dale commo». 

Thcre are t',vo subsidiary considerations left. One is that mistakes of 
date in colophons are not uncommon. An edition of Aeneas Sylvius's 
E/,z'stol«e (Cologne, printed by Koelhoff) is dated lcccct.xvlu, which is 
stated to be an error for  478, and an O],uscldum de componendis versibus by 
IkIataratius, printed at Venice, is al<o bclieved to be erroneously dated  468 
for I478. Caxton's edition of Gower's Confessio Amantis is dated x493 
instead of 483. I have noticed the following additional errors affecting 
dates before o'o  :7o for x 7o, o6  for i6oi, o99 for I499, 334 
for 1734, 4oo for 49 o or ,5oo, 444 for 494, x46I for I47x, 46x 
for 64, I46Z for I47 z, 47-" for 48-". 
There is no doubt therefore that a mistake of date in an early book 
bas man)" parallrls, and so far the im,robability of it happening in other 
books is diminished. At the same rime one would ext»ect the first printers 
in a place of learning to be careful enough, even if an initial blunder of 
this magnitude were committed, to correct it in some copies before issue. 
It is of course conceivable that the date was deliberatelv falsified, to avoid 
expected unpleasant consequences of being round fl«grante dchcto, but 
thls h)pothesis may be left to be dealt ,«'ith when some one maintains it. 

5. Z?ooks bound w?h lhe 2rerome. 

There remains a consideration of some weight. Until this century it 
was common to bind together several books (hOt merely pamphlets) in one 
volume. What books have been round in the saine binding with the 
" x 46;" volume ? Four copies of the Jerome are, or are known to bave 
been, bound with sevêral other treatises (see p. 252 ). Onê is bound with 
(and belote) the Aretinus of x479, and it is interesting that though a few 
leavês of modern paper now selarate them there is an offset of the first 
page of tte Aretinus on the last page of the Jerome, showing that the 
Aretinus was bound ",vith the J eromc belote the former was entirely dr3". 
No conclusion however about the date of the Jerome can be drawn from 
this, anal xvhatever presumption of synchronism might be raised is re- 
movêd by the fact that the well defined stainq at the end of the Jcrome and 
beginning of the Aretinus do hot run from the one fo the other. A second 
copy was bound with seven others, only two of v«hich are dated, 1478 and 
(the Oxford Aegidius)  479 : onê of thê undated is about 1485 (Perottus). 
A third copy v,'as bound with four preceding treatises, of which the only 
dated one was the first, the Oxford Aegidius of  479. A fourth has rive 

pieces with it, the first two of which 
third, the fourth is of I485, the fifih 
or 1487 . 

are of about 48o, the Jerome is 
is undated, and the last is of 1486 

Clearly we are on ver)" unsafe ground when we base an)" conclusion on 
these companion treatises, and out hesitation is hot lessened ,«-hen we 
notice that the only copy of the I)dgarfiz ren/tï (Oxfi, not later than 
 483) which is bound with other treatises, occurs after books dated 1408 
and 1486, the st being without a date.

6. First prbzh'ng t)t urope. 
The following list of places and dates will show how far it is likely, if 
we turn from facts to probabilities, that Oxford should have started 
printing in ,468. Only the first two towns of each country are given, 
with the exception of England: and the claim of Oxford is purposely 
. Germany (Mainz, hot after 454: Strassburg, before 146o: 
Cologne began hot later than 1466). 
2. Italy (Subiaco, 146,3: Rome, 46ï). 
3. Switzerland (Basel, hOt after 1468: Beromtinster, 147o). 
4- France (Paris, 147o: Lyon, hot aïter 1473). 
5. Netherlands (Utrecht, about 1471--3 : Alost, 1473)- 
6. Austro-Hungary (Buda-Pesth, 1473 : Trient,  475)- 
7. Spain (,Valencia, 1474 : Saragossa, 1475)- 
8. England (W'estminster, 477: Oxford, 1478: St. Alban's, 148o 
[  479 ?] : London,  48o). 
9- Denmark (Odensee, 1482: $chleswig, 1486). 
io. Sweden (Stockholm, 1483: \Vadsten, 495)- 
 I. Portugal (Lisbon, 1489 : Leiria, 1492). 
12. Montenegro (Cettinje, 1494). 

It is hoped that the above summary statement of the arguments for and 
against tte date of the Jerome will serve to make the present position of 
the question clear. What general conclusion can be arrived at before 
further facts are discovered ? Caxton, who began to print in F.ngland in 
i477, nowhere claims to have introduced printing into England. Is it 
still conceivable that Oxford preceded Westminster by nine years ? The 
answer is that it is still conceivable, but hot probable. The ground has 
been slowly and surely gMng way beneath the defenders of the Oxford 
date, in proportion to the advance of our knowledge of early printing, 
and ail that can be said is that it bas not )'et entirely slipped away. Ail 
the new contributions to the argument and ail the chief bibliographers 
are against it, while no fresh defending forces are in sight. But it is 
still allowable to assert that the destructive arguments, even if we admit 
their cumulative cogency, do hot at the present time amount to proof. 
In the venerable building at the north-east corner of St. lXlary's Church 
at Oxfordwthe old Itouse of Congregation, which, though once the cradle 
of the University, 
Nunc situs informis premit et deserta vetustas-- 
there is still a single tenant, feebly holding his ground and refusing to be 
evicted. He wears the form of King Alfred and bears a legend beneath, 
telling us boldly that he founded the University 1. The clamour of dis- 
putation never reaches that silent room, the changes of centuries have 
disregarded it, and it remains the one place where a belief which cast 



a lustre of royalty over early Oxford, and to this da)' gives primacy to one 
of the oldest colleges, is still maintained wittout contradiction. The 
fiare neither utters nor listens to argument: it asserts and chooses to 
assert. But the spirit of the age is at the door: St. 3Iary's is swathed in 
scaffolding : the sounds of trowel and saw penetrate through the dira glass 
and the cobwebs, and ail things become new. It is probable that the 
opening years of the twentieth century will see the age-worn bust of Alfred 
and the copy of the Oxford Jerome in the University archives consigned 
to a common flame as lmpostors in an age of light.

8. Anwykyll (x 483 ?, see p. 3). 
Four of the chief English grammarians of the 16th century were con- 
nected with Magdalen College Grammar School at Oxford. The first 
toaster was John Anwyk)'ll (48I?-87); the first usher and second 
toaster was John Stanbridge (I481 i--88, I488-94, d. ISIO ) ; John Ilolte, 
the author of the Lac lu«rorum, was toaster; and Robert Whittington 
was Stanbridge's pUl:,il at the school. Dean Colet, \Villiam Lily and 
Cardinal Wolsey wete also members of Magdalen (see Bloxam's legisl, r 
of [agdalt'7z Coll,'ge, iii., ad init.). Of the Latin Gramrnar in Latin wtiich 
is now belote us and has been assigned vith probability by Bradshaw to 
Anw.ykyll, no comI,lete copy is known, but it was reprinted at Deventer 
in i489. The l'ulgaria T«renti/occurs also set-,arately, and consists of 
sentences from "l'ereace v,ith English translation. 
There apl:,ear to be two different editions of this Grammar (hot 
Vulgaria), for it can be shown that the Cambridge fla0ments are not of 
the saine edition as the Bodleian book. Not c, nl),, for instance, are the 
contents of sign. h 3 in each entirely diffcrent, but the signatures them- 
selves are in different type, and in the Cort,us (Carnbridge) fragment 
the signature is n 3, and )'et it be]orgs to the Çompendium and hot the 
Vulgaria. The height of the l:,rinted page also varies considerably, and 
the width of the V'ulgaria pages is ]ess than that of the Grammar. The 
subject needs further investigation.

period of four )ears, and the first is computed to 
have commenced in July, .c. 776: so that July a.p. 1 corresponded 
with the be#nning of Olympiad i95. The computation cêasêd for 
practical I,urposes in ,,,. p. 395, and the prescrit revival is of an artificial 
kind, in which the expression "every fifth year." which by a Greek could 
be applied to an Olympiad (FI«u'ra«rqpt), was taken in its ordinary sense 
and used for computation. Thus "in the 297th Olympiad from the birth 

of Christ" ,.,,'as n the present book 
x. 9. I485. A similar use is round in 
Epigrams of Ausonius'. But the r494 

taken to represent (297 x 5 =) 
the 1472 (Venice) edition of the 
(Parma) edition of the Declama- 

tions of Quintilian contains a futile attempt to use the ancient method, 
for it was printed "Olympiade quingentesima sexagesima octaua qui est 
annus a salure christiana 3I.cccc.xciiii quinto non. Iul.", xhereas it would 
properly have been 1493. And 3I. A. Giry (3[anuel de I)iploma/ique,

The Printing Press at Oxford ceases its xvork suddenly in t48, and 
there is no reason for this stop at presênt known. The printing at 
St. Alban's ceased at about the saine time. It bas been suggested that 
Rood left Oxford for, where a Thêodericus printêd books in 485 
and  486 in a type similar to that of the Ales and Lattêburius. In this case 
Hunt may have continued for a short rime alone, and thên relinquished 
the work. 


(Supplementary to, and corrective of, pp. 5-7.) 

FROII December  5  7 to February"  519 " ( 1 5,1.,- ?) a printing press is 
round in work at Oxford in St. John's Street near gIerton College, con- 
nected in i518 with the naine of Johannes Scolar and in the last book 
with the naine of Carolus K)rfoth. Both of these appear to be foreigners, 
but nothing certain has )'et been discovered about them or the causes of the 
establishment and cessation of the press 1. In I524 none of these names 
«,ccurs mnong the inhabitants of Oxford paying taxes (Oxf. Hist. Soc., 
Cit_y Documenls, ed. by J. E. T. R ogers, 89 t, p. 5): nor are they other- 
wise known in Oxford as booksellers or stationers. Although Scolar 
uses the arms of the University (their earliest occurrence in print), 3"et 
the Registers of the University almost elatirely ignore the fact that for 
the second time the greatest literary invention since speech and writing 
were known, was silently at work in its midst. Three of the books were 
however issued "Cum Privilegio." I t is peculiar that whereas theology 
claimed a fair proportion of the first press, it is entirely absent from the 
second; grammar, logic, arithmetic, natural science, and the Ethics of 
Aristotle being alone represented, except that one broadside consists of a 
Prognostication, which Dorne's lists in  520 show to have been a popular 
form of literature in Oxford at that time. All are in small quarto, and 
similar in the types used, namely an English and Brevier black-letter, 
with a Great Primer for titles. Not only at Oxford but also at Cam- 
bridge, York, Tavi,tock, and Abingdon, in ail of which there was an 
early  6th cent. press, printing entirely ceases for nearly the central fort)' 
years of that century. "

One is Bookbinders Bridge, vhich is still 
which as one starts from close under the 

districts in Oxford are associated with the early production of 

standing, namely the bridge 
Castle in Titmouse Lane 

towards St. Thomas's Church, crosses the second piece of water. The 
bridge was on the limits of Oseney Abbey and the neighbouring tenements 
were largely occupied by binders who worked for the Abbey. See Clark's 
cdition of \Vood's ]]isto O, of lhe CgO', i. 433. 
Schidyard St., now Oriel St., is said to imply by its naine that it was 
the locus schediasticorum, the place of ,ariters on sc]a'dae or sheets of 
paper. Certainly with St. John Baptist St. (now 5Ierton St.) and Car St., 
it was a great centre for scribes, illuminators, bookbinders, and the like.

,4 PPENDIX C. 2 7 9 

The Pra[se of [usic (1586). 

This work is probably not by John Case, although constantly attributed 
to him. The facts of the marrer ma)' be stated as follows. 
The book is strictly anonymous: all that can be gathered directly 
from it is that the author was himself an enthusiastic musician, 
though hot necessari]y of eminence; that he was a well-read scholar, 
as well in the Fathers as in the Classics, and that his style and 
method point to a man of imaginative mind, young in years, and with 
considerable elegance of thought and expression. The printer writes 
a dedication to Sir Walter Raleigh, alluding to the book as "an Orphan 
of one of Lady lXIusickes children." This can on]y be meant to convey 
the impression that the author was dead: on the other hand the treatise 
can only have been composed recently from the allusions to tte con- 
troversy about Cburcb music: in fact the autbor was undoubted]y 
a Protestant in F.lizabeth's reign, who approved of elaborate music in 
Churches. within certain common-sense lirnits. 
In 1588 John Case published at Oxford an "Apologia Iusices '" 
written in Latin, and maintaining nearly the saine view about Church 
music as the book belote us, to wbich Case makes no a]lusion. Case was 
elected scholar ofSt. John's College, Oxford, in 1,564 ; and in  568 fellow. 
"But so it was." says Wood (Aih. O.v., ed. Bliss, i. 685) , " that being 
Popishly affected he left his fellowship and married [in ,574] and... 
read logic and philosot-,hy to young men (mostly of the R. C. religion) in 
a private bouse in St. BIary .'Iagd. parish." 
The external evidence about the autlorship in question may be put 
as follows. In favour of Case is the important fact that Thomas Watson 
the poet in a sonnet to Case does certainly seem to allude to the English 
as well as the Latin treatise. Iost of the expressions ma)', and more 
than one must, apply to the A[,ologfa, but the al/usion to 2[ars)'as call 
only refer to the " Praise," which indeed is mentioned by naine, " 
John Case.. his learned booke latel)" ruade in the prayes of.Iuslck. 
Again, the fact that the Apologiz nowhere alludes to the former toem is 
itself an argument that they were hot independent of each other, while 
supposing that Case was partly ashamed of so light and poetical a pro- 
duction and desired to be judged rather bya more philosophical v,'ork, 
such as the Latin treatise, we can understand a desire to ignore the 
former. To this ma)' be added that such considerations as the above 
were sufficient to convince critics like Dr. Farmer, Mr. Joseph Itasle- 
wood and Dr. Bliss, as well as almost all others who bave considered the 
point. Against such a conclusion the following points ma)' be urged. 
Antony à Wood, who wrote lives of a]l Oxford writers up to his own 
rime, and who was born in I632 , will not even suggest that Case was the 
author, but on the contrary declares that in all lais searches he could 
never discover who wrote the book. Richard Heber seems also to 
have argued against Case's connexion. With respect to Watson's testi- 
mony it must be remembered that he had left the University some years 
before either book was published, and that it is quite possible that he 
wrote his sonnet with both books belote him and with little on which 
to form a judgment êxcept an obvious similarity of subject and point of 


view. Some catalogues are said to have credited the printer with the 
authorship, and Lowndes ascribes it to Barnaby Barnes! 
The internal evidence is against the common authorship of the two 
books. The style of E. 1 is light, poetical and imaginative, with numerous 
digressions, apologized for and repeated : that of L. is more staid and so 
to speak scholastic ; the sentences and thoughts fall into a logical form 
which are natural to Case. The latter passes by the m),thological part of 
the history of /usic, the former finds it in accordance with his taste. 
]3oth authors are learned: in E. the references to the Fathers are as numerous 
as those from any other source: in L. the references to secular authors 
predominate. /3oth draw from common sources, such as the Theatrum 
vilae humanae of Beyerlinck and the classical authors : but in the longest 
quotation common to both, one from Ornithoparchus's A[t'crologus 
(E. pp. 39-40 : L. pref.), a treatise on singing and music (afterwards, in 
z6o9, translated into English), in which the imaginary descent of Con- 
centus and Accentus from Sonus is given, they differ materially in one 
point of the account : nor are the explanations of the kinds and effects of 
the Greek styles of music entirelyin accord. So too there are expressions 
peculiar to each book which could hardly bave been absent from the 
other, had the authors been the saine person (as in E. allusions to 
Iercury's three parts of music; the Roman college of minstrels ; three 
causes of music, pleasure, grief and enthusiasm: in L. to inanimate 
nature moved bv music, Homer as a minstrel, the idea that strings from 
wolves'and sheep's guts would hot harmonize together, bees hot having ears, 
modern musicians). But lastly the personality of the authors is different. 
Both indeed take up the same general [.oint of view, that music is lawful 
in a Church, and both entirely neglect the science of music though they 
profess to be ardent musicians : but in E. there is a distinct purpose to 
oppose the attempt to exclude ail mixed and " exquisite" music from the 
public services : the author writes to his equals for the purpose of interest- 
ing and convincing them: in L. v«e see the dialectician addressing those 
trained in the schools and accustomed to the subtle distinctions and 
formalities of scholastic logic, and also the teacher of youth, indulging in 
moral and didactic reflexions (I-9. 57,-55). Once more, Case, according 
to Wood, was known before  574 to have proclivities towards the Roman 
Catholic relion, and accordingly in L. we find no word of blame 
addressed to that Church, the nearest approach being a note of triumph 
over the defeat of the Armada on the last page. Could he then have 
xritten, as the author of E.. ttle following expressions, all used in con- 
tempt, "in the time of popery" (p. 9), "popish church Nusicke 
(ibid.), "the hypocriticall Monkes and Friers sang their seuen canonicall 
houres" (p.  33), "rotten rythmes of popery and superstitious inuocation 
or praying vnto Saints doth not giue greater cause of vomir to any man 
than to my selfe" (p.  36) ? 
The author of the "Praise of Musicke" may one da)" be discovered, 
but he will probably be round to be some other than Dr. John Case.

A. It'oodcut and A'/al Ornamenls. r 585- 640. 

OF these there are two classes, the first large and used for the centre 
of titlepages or with conspicuous colophons (these I terre D,z,ices), the 
other smaller ornaments, used for borders, or to mark the beginning 
or end of a chapter, or generally for decorative purposes: these I call 
It'oodcuts. The descriptions which follow are not intended to be fuller 
than is sufficient to distinguish the more important. The measurements 
(as always) are the least possible, and hot the full size of the plate or 

I. Dcz,ices. 

Of these there are, in the period under review, fourteen :m 

A. 3t x 2 in. On a shield the arms of the University (with motto sAPiENITiaE : I

B. -x -in. A metal engraving. In centre the arms of the University, with 
Pi]Fe' within a ribbon bearing iCADEMIA OXONIENSIS. Above and on each side

/3a.  x  in. A wood engraving from 13, omitting Barnes's name: the motto 
is ' IF : and there are other small changes. 
Used in 6-7-8 , 630-33, x635-7, 64 o. 
C. ¼ x r in. An omamental shield, vith the arms of the University, the legend 
being ,t i: at the sides A¢: and ox. There is a defect a short line omitted) 
on one shonlder, which serves to distinguish it from H. 
Used at intervals from 59 z to 638. 
There is a counterfeit of this used in London printing of at least 66 and 6z 4 : 
see pp. o6,  o, and H, below. 
D. r + in. squ. A nine-spoked wheel vith two mottos" Omnia subiacent vicissi- 
tndini," and "Sola virtus cadere non potest." 
Used in 599.-3, 6.o, 6 9.

Used in 636. 

The amas of Great t3ritain and IreLand, crowned, with "C.", " R." 

M. 4½ × 3- A Tree of Knowledge, boys plucking fruit, &c. 
Used in 1636 (Lily's Grammar'. 

II. Woodcuts. 

These are 142 in number (not counting .#'az)z woodcut capitals), of 
which 32 were used by Barnes. Most of these passed on to his suc- 
cessors, who augmented them. In 1627 the two University printers 
printed separately, and John Lichfield took the larger numbei for himself, 
a few being used in common. It would be idle to print a complete list 
of these, but the writer has full notes of the occurrence of all that are 
round in each book. Twelve are alphabets, fifteen frames within which 
an)" capital could be placed, and four are arched borders. 


The following table exhibits the use ruade of different type by Oxford 
printers 15 o-I64 o, but applies only to the chier type of the body of the 
work. Thus Pica Greek is the chier type of a book in i59i at earliest, 
but it is found occasionally in 1587, and Long Primer Greek in 1585. 
So too Great Primer Greek is used in 1624, 9- And Hebrew type is 
used sporadically from 1596 on (Long Primer, Pica and English, pointed 
and unpointed : see x 596, 8 & 9; i6oi, 2 ; 1602, 3; &c.) 


The ordinary size (new) of the type used in the Oxford Press from 
I585 to 64o is as follows, sec p. 44 (1629, no. 4):a 

Lines in 
otte foot, 
Nonpareil ............ 144 
Minion ............ 12o 
]3revier about I IO 
Long Primer ........... 9 ° 
Pica ............. 7 z 
English ............ 64 
Great Primer ........... 5  
..... 41 

D6uble Pica (which is double "small Pica") 
Canon • . . - .... 

The old measures make the type of all these ver), slightly 
than the above measurements. 



It is curious to observe the small points which break the smooth 
course of ordinary printing in these earlier rimes, some of them marking 
progress, some a perturbation in the office, some stupidity. The following 
are random notes of some bibliographical interest 

I. The change of use in the case of u and v (l.'nhters#), being the old spelling, and 
University the new) may be remarked in progress in 589, no. 5, and is praetically 
completed by I6o. But a capital U is not round at all in the period dealt with, its 
place being in a few cases supplied by a large lower-case u. 

2. For "at Oxford" the common Latin is Oxonice, but Oxonii occurs sporadically. 
Bellositi Dobunorum occurs in 628 : and t?hj,d),ch«n (in \Yelsh books) in  95, 6oo. 

3- In  588 (no. 8) we first find an Oxford édition de htxe. 
4- The state of the office is shon by I595, no. 4 (small stock of type); 6i, 
no. 2 (l{ebrew words sometimes transliterated, sometimes in Hebrew type: )et in 
163, no. , there is a complaint of the want of Hebrew type !); 65, no. I6 (one 
sheet in different type); 6z, no. 6 (carclessness). 
5. Red ink is round in 14z-, 6-'8, 63I, 633 and thereafter; and gold-printing in 
6. Curiosities of workrnanship will be found in I629, no. I4; 63I , nos. I% I7; 
637., nos. 26, 33 ; 634, no. 9; 635, no. 3 ; 636, no. I5 (signatures) ; 63 _q, nos. 3, 
î (,do.) ; 64o. no. 24 : .and eccentricity on the author's part m 163, no. 29 ; 1633, 
no. 9 (phonetic spelling)  635, no. io. In 6I 3 no. 29 (Rainolds) on the first two 
pages of each section the headline is "pophecy ", but on e,'ery other page it is " pro- 
phecie". 634 no.  7 (Statuta) is a truc folio, ia every sense in which the word is used, 

7- The number of books or editions issued at Oxford is roughly as follows :

total, about 75 o. In the Tth cent. about 7oo were issued : in the Sth, about 2Ioo :

may be estimated as likely to be about 6ooo.

less than îo per cent., and the Bodleian about 8o per cent. The following ca lcul ati on

THE following tables and lists explain themselves. They give a de- 
tailed picture of the mutual relations of Oxford and London printers and 
publishers, and the development of the Oxford book trade. It will be 
noticed how the archaisms (Imprz)d«d al O.rford hA,, or Al Oaford, 
przhled by, &c.) are gradually worn off, with the rhetorical descriptions 
(such as cel«berr¢moe A c«d«mi O,pogr«phus), and the use of colophons. 
In some cases we find fictitious imprints, as in 16o, nos. 5, i i, 1611 

see impr. 7a), 1612 (impr. 7), 1613 (impr. 32), 1.616 (impr. 35), 1.626 
impr. 67). The number of books with no printel"S or publisher's naine 
is small (see impr. lO7, and Appendix, p. 151 (Stanley)), and of books with 
no imprint at all there are ver)" few instances, see i586, 12 ; 16o2, 8 and 
9; 16°3, 5; 16o6, 5; 1622, 6; 1625, 9; 1635, 13-
