This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover.

I can te^ify to the substeuUial reproduction in this reprint of 
the unique original t.t Lamport Hall, which is so carefully pre- 
served in its rare and curious old library, whose promised 
catalogue will yields I doubt not, some new surmises to bibliog'

Venus and Adonis. 

1593. Venvs and Adonis. Vilia miretar vul- 
gus : mihi flauus Apollo | Pocula Castalia plena 
ministret aqua. [A device of an anchor.] London 
Imprinted by Richard Field, and are to oe sold at 
the signe of the white Greyhound in Paules Church- 
yard. 1593. 

Description. Twenty-seven leaves in quarto. 
It is disting^uishable from the 1 594 edition by having 
no period after London. Entered in the Stationers* 
Registers, April 13, IC03. 

The Text. Furnivall says, " The first edition is 
very well printed and was perhaps seen through the 
press hy Shakespeare himself." The editors of the 
Cambridge edition attest its "remarkable ac- 
curacy," and think it was printed, " doubtless from 
the author's own manuscript." Grant White says 
it is printed " with almost absolute purity." 

One Copy Known, In the Bodleian with the Ma- 
lone collection ; size, 7f X 5 i inches ; has written 
in it, " Bought of Mr. William Ford, bookseller, in 
Manchester, in August, 1805, ^^ ^^^ enormous price 
o^ ;f 25, nor is any other copy known to exist." 
Thomas Rodd, the bookseller, says in a MS. note 
to Halliwell's Shakespeariana, 1841, "No copy 
has ever been sold by public sale . . . would most 
probably sell for ;f 1 50, were one to occur." A very 

considerable increase of this estimate would have 
to be made at this day. 

ReprinU. In 1866 it appeared in the Ashbee-Halliwel] aeries 
of traced litho|piu>hic fac-nmiles, and a fao«mile of the title is 

8'ven in HalliwdPs folio edition of Shakespeare, zvi. p. 278. 
t>Uier and other editors have followed this edition. 

1594. Venvs and Adonis. Vilia miretur vulgus : 
mihi flauus Apollo | Pocula Castalia plena ministret 
aqua. [A device of an anchor.] London. Im- 
printed oy Richard Field, and are to to be sold at 
the signe of the white Greyhound in Paules Church- 
yard. 1594* 

Description. Title and dedication, two leaves ; 
text, B to G in fours, and HI ; twenty-seven leaves. 
Fi has no si^ature mark. Halliwell says, a close 
examination is necessary to distinguish this edition 
from the preceding. 

The Text, Collier says it ** is a distinct reim- 
pression : affords some various readings, and not a 
few important confirmations of the correctness of the 
older text, corrupted more or less in all subsequent 
editions." Charles Edmonds says that its new 
readings are " always improvements, which seem to 
show that this impression had the benefit of the 
author's revision." 

T%ree Copies Known, i. In the Grenville Collec- 
tion, no. 1 1 180, British Museum; size, 6^f X4^( 
inches ; bound bv Clarke in olive morocco, elabo- 
rately tooled, witn the Grenville arms on the sides ; 
sound in condition, but with here and there through- 
out small imperfections mended, and tears pieced 
out in fac-simile. This copy bears the following 
note in Grenville's hand, — " Shakespeare, Venus £ 
Adonis, i^. Field, 1 594. This poem was first printed 
in ^ 1593, and is of tne greatest rarity. This second 
edition is I believe of no less rarity. The only copy 
that I have ascertained, is that which was be- 
queathed by Mr. Caldecott to the Bodleian library, 
and that copy sold h^ Pickering in 1843, which 
I sold again to buy this preferable copy." Gren-

Harison. 1 596. 

Description. Without pagination. Twenty-seven 
leaves: sig. A to Diij, in eights. The dedication, 
"To the Right Honorable Henry Wriotheslie, 
Earle of Southampton, and Baron of Litchfeld," 
is subscribed *' Your Honors in all dutie, William 

The Text. It has some changes from previous 
editions, both errors and improvements, all " doubt- 
less due to the printer." 

Two Copies Jinoivn. i. In the British Museum ; 
press mark, C. 21. a; size, 4^|^ X 2^f inches; in

The following MS. notes are in the book : -^ 
"This most precious volume is from the Libraries of y* late

On the reverse of this last is written : — *' Thb was written 
to me in the Sale Room by Mr. Thomas Rodd, on the morning 
of the sale. My competitor was the Houb. Thos. Grenvilie. 

"Gbokgb Danibl." 

At the Daniel sale in 1864, it cost the British Museum £ii(>. 

2. In the Bodleian ; size, 4i X 3 inches. The 
Daniel Catalogue says it is ** cut into the headline, 
and is inferior " to the one in the Daniel Collection, 
no. I, above. 

It originally formed part of a volume of old poetical varieties, 
sold at Dr. Bernard's sale in 169S for i*. 3d. ; and Thomas 
Warton bought it forbd. in 1760 out of some rubbish in a broker's 
shop. His Drother, Joseph Warton, gave it to Malone, who 
said of the volume in 1791, *' It could now at auction undoubtc^]- 
ly be sold for three or four guineas." Malone took it apart, 
and placed the Venus and Adonis " ^th my other very early 
editions of Shakespeare's pieces." See Prior's Malone, p. 179. 
With his collection, it passed into the Bodleian. 

1599. Venvs and Adonis. Vilia miretur vulgus : 
mihi ilauus Apollo | Pocula Castalia plena ministret 
aqua. Imprinted at London for William Leake, 
dwelling in Paules Churchyard at the signe of the 
Greyhound. 1599. 

Description. Twenty-seven leaves. 

T/ie Text. Mr. Edmonds says, ** A few correc- 
tions are introduced ; but they bear no proportion 
to the misprints." 

One Copy Known. In September, 1867, Mr. 
Charles Edmonds (of the then house of Willis and 
Sotheran, booksellers in London) went to Lamport 
Hall in Northamptonshire, the seat of Sir Charles 
Isham, Bart., to make a professional inspection of 
the library in that house, and having accomplished 
his purpose, and while waiting for the departure of 
a train, was shown a lot of old books in a lumber 
room, long undisturbed, and there discovered a 
volume, " wonderfully clean and fresh, bound in the 
wrapping vellum of the period, with strings, and 
with no outward indication of its contents. The 
volume measured 4f X 3i- inches, and proved to 
contain under one cover, this 1599 edition of the 
Venus, the Passionate Pilgrim of the same year and 
other tracts. The book is now at Lamport ; and 

was exhibited in 1877 at the Caxton celebration in 
London, Class D, 1492. 

See Edmonds's letter to the London Times ; the G«ntleman*8 
Magazine, 1867, pp. 608, 785 ; The Bookseller^ December, 1867, 
p. 1254 and January, 1869, p. 5 ; Allibone's Dictionary, p. 2008, 

Reprint, In 1870, a fac-simile reprint of the above volume 
was issued under the editorial care of Mr. Edmonds, who fur- 
nished an introduction. The edition was limited to 131 copies, 
of which 25 were on large paper, and six on vellum. The \Mx%t^ 
paper cofues are now worth from £1 to /i\. 

? 1600. Venus and Adonis. . . . Printed by I. H. 
for lohn Harison. 1600. 

Description, The above title is from a MS. title 
to the copy named below. Twenty-seven leaves in 
small octavo. Halliwell and Edmonds claim the 
date is an error, because Harison had sold the copy- 
right to Leake, four years before. 

The Text. The editors of the Cambridge edition 
think it is printed from the 1596 edition. Mr. Ed- 
monds says, the 1599 edition intervened. W. C. 
Hazlitt says it is neither the 1599 nor the 1602 edi- 
tion. The Cambridge editors say it has many 
" erroneous readings, due, it would seem, partly to 
carelessness and partly to wilful alteration, which 
were repeated in later copies." 

One Copy Known, In the Bodleian : with MS. title ; 
size, 4X X 2^ inches ; bound with the Lucrece 
of 1600 and other tracts ; formerly Malone*s, and 
given to him by Farmer. 

1602^. Venvs and Adonis. Vilia miretur vul- 
gus, mihi flauus Apollo | Pocula Castalia plena mi- 
nistret ac^ua. [A printer's device, — A square frame, 
surroundmg a globe, with a skull and wings above 
it, and above this an hour-glass, with an open 
book behind the hour-glass, on which is inscribed, 
I live to dy — I dy to live.] Imprinted at London 
for William Leake^ dwelling at the Signe of the 
Holy Ghost, in Paules Churchyard, 1602. 

Description. Without pagination; twenty-seven 
leaves ; sig. A to D3 in eights. The dedication 
"To the Right Honorable Henry Wriotheslie, 
Earle of Southampton, and Baron of Lichfield " is 
subscribed, " Your Honours in all duety William 

The Text. It is thought to have been printed 
from the previous edition. The editors of the Cam- 
bridge edition say it is superior to the other edition 
of this year in the Bodleian, in typography and in 

One Copy Known, In the British Museum ; press- 
mark, C. 21. a: size, 5A X 3A inches ; bound in 
yellow morocco ; condition, firm, on thick paper, 

but rather dirty and mended in a few places ;

Mr. Evans was wrong in stating that a copy was in the Malone 
collection in the Bodleian Library. No copy is mentioned in 
the catalogue, nor is there one to be found there.

Imprinted at London for IViiiiam Leake^ dwelling 
at the signe of the Holy Ghost, in Paules Church- 
yard. 1602. 

Description. Beside the slight variation in the 
typography of the title from the other editions of 
1602, there are said to be differences in the text. 

One Copy ICnown. At Shirbum Castle, Oxford- 
shire, the seat of the Earl of Macclesfield. 

1602^. Venvs and Adonis. Vilia miretur vul- 
gus, mihi flauus Apollo | Pocula Castalia plena mi-

Description. In small octavo ; twenty-seven 

One Copy ICnown. In the Bodleian : size, 5<V X 3| : 
has autograph of R. Burton, author of the Anatomy 
of Melancholy. Macray, Annals of the Bodleian, 
p. 67, would seem to imply that it came by bequest 
direct from Burton. 

1616. An edition of this date is mentioned by 
Dyce ; but I find no trace of it. 

1617. A copy of an edition of this date is, ac- 
cording to Bohn, in the Bodlfeian, " Printed for 
W. B." /. e. William Barrett ; and the Annals of the 
Bodleian, p. 247, says it was received in 1833 from 
Thomas Caldecott. 

1620. An edition, " Printed for I. P." 1. e. John 
Parker ; in eighteen-mo, twenty-seven leaves. 

Copies, The editors of the Cambridge edition

Capell Collection. Dr. Bandinel also purchased 
one for the Bodleian, but it cannot be found." 

1627. Venus and Adonis. Uilia miretur vulgus,

aqua. Edinbvrgh, printed by lohn Wreittoun, and 
are to bee sold in his Shop a litle beneath the Salt 
Trone. 1627. 

Description. In small octavo, twenty-two leaves. 
Title and pages 5-46, the latter misprinted 47. The 
pagination of p. 13 is printed above the first word 
of the page on the left. 

TheText. The editors of the Cambridge edition 
think it was printed from a MS. copy of the edition 
of 1602, into which several emendations had been 
introduced agreeing with the earlier editions. Halli- 
well says, " It is the only early impression of any of 
Shakespeare's works ever printed out of England." 

Two Copies Known, i . In the British Museum ; 
press-mark, C 21. a. ; size 5-j^ X 3^ inches ; bound 
in calf ; in poor and soiled condition ; title cropped 
and inlaid, and several leaves repaired ; has lx>ok 
plate of George Chalmers. 

It is dated by error 1607, in the Chalmers Catalogue in 
j84a, Part II., no. ^58^ when it sold for ^37 los. ; and b]r error 
again at Bright*s sale, in 1845, no. 5068, it was called ** unique," 
and brought ^i^ when it passed into the British Museum. 
See Life of Archibald Constable, I. p. 108. 

2. In the library of Almon W. Griswold, New 
York City. Edmonds says, *' It had been found by 

a country bookseller in a lot of worthless books at 
a sale," and was no. 61 in a sale at Sotheby's, March, 
1864, and brought £11^. It is described as "the 
only perfect copy known, uncut, has leaf Ai, which 
is not in the Chalmers copy." 

Reprint. Halliwell in his Handlist, 1859, mentions a aniqott 
fac-simile in his possession. 

1630^ Venus and Adonis. . . . Printed by J. 
H., and are to be sold by Francis Coules. 1630. 

Description. In small octavo, twenty-seven leaves. 

One Copy Known, In the Bodleian ; size, 4|- X 
3^ inches ; found among Anthony k Wood's books 
and removed from the Ashmolean Museum to the 

Rtprini. In Lintot's edition of the Poems, 1709, this poem 
purports to follow an edition of 1630, though in some of the copies 
the date is given 1609. 

1630'. A copy in small octavo, twenty-seven 
leaves; size 4^^ X 2^ inches; with a MS. title 

?;iving this date is in the Bodleian. The text differs 
rom the preceding edition ; and the editors of the 
Cambridge edition say it is earlier than the 1636 

1636. Venus and Adonis. Vilia miretur vul- 
gus, mihi flavus Apollo | Pocula Castalia plena

;£'49 lor., to Henry Stevens, who rebound it and 
sold it again, August, 1857, no. 556, at Sotheby's, 
for ;f 56. 

1675. Halliwell speaks of an edition of this year 
as a Chapbook, " a quaint looking, diminutive volume 
of extreme rarity." 

Copies, Bohn says there was one in the Nassau 
sale, 1824, which brought £z y. 

One is named in the Bodleian catalogue, but the 
editors of the Cambridge edition say it cannot be 
found. «_^^ 

There was not after this date any edition of the 
Venus and Adonis, until it made part of the 
collective edition of the poems of Shakespeare, 
published by B. Lintott of London in 170c) or 17 10. 
In this, of which there were two issues, with varia- 
tions of main and subordinate titles, the dates of 
1609 and 1630 are given as the separate titles of 
this poem, as if editions of these dates were fol- 
lowed, but probably without warrant 


1594. Lvcrece. London. Printed by Richard 
Field, for lohn Harrison, and are to be sold at the 
signe of the white Greyhound in Paules Church- 
yard. 1594. 

Description. In quarto, fortv-seven leaves, with-

The Text, Collier, in his Reasons for a New 
Edition, 1842, says he has collated the Malone, 


Devonshire, Caldecott, and two other copies, and 
found variations in all. Furnivall says, **Each 
quarto is taken from the one before it."

copy, "only two other copies have been ascertained, 
one at the Bodleian, having been Malone's, and a 
second purchased by Mr. Daniel of Islington.*' 
Grenville's arms are stamped on the sides, and it 
was bought by him at the Combes sale in 1837.

The Mtiseum Catalogue has this note : " On the recto of Aa 
is the dedication to the Earl of Southampton, and on verso of

poem bv the author, or at his instance, whilst the sheets were 
going through the press. As, for example, in some copies the 
following couplet occurs :

the Baron Bolland copy, otherwise the Lincoln 
Chapter copy, as a most beautiful copy, likely to 
sell for £ioo'f and Rodd the same year, in advertis- 
ing a copy in his catalogue, no. 310S, said, *' no per-

brilliant impression of frontispiece. 

This copy has the following note in it by Halliwell : This is 
one of the commonest editions of Shakeqieare without the vrig' 
imal frontispiece, and one of the rarest with. I cannot have 
seen less than thirty copies, and the only one of them with 
frontispiece was the one sold at Sotheb/s (now Mr. Tile's) a 

few years ago for I think £26 51.^ certainly thereabouts, and the 
verses at the bottom of the frontispiece were also cut into as in 
this copy. This impression is a most brilliant one. The me- 
dallion portrait of Snakespeare in this frontispiece is beyond all 
question the rarest of all tne engraved portraits of Sliakespeare. 
There are two copies of the book in the British Museum, neither 
having this crirtual frontispiece.

The Passionate Pilgrim. 

1599. The Passionate Pilgrime. By fV. Shakes* 
peare. At London printed for W. laggard, and are 
to be sold by W. Leake at the Greyhound in Paules 
Churchyard. 1^99. 

Description, In i6mo, thirty leaves, printed only 
on one side of the leaf, excepting the last three 
leaves. On the i8th is Sonnets to Sundry Notes 


The Text. Dyce savs that it appears to have been 
given to the press witnout Shakcspeare*s consent or 
even knowledge, and how much of it proceeded from 
his pen cannot be distinctly ascertained. Halliwell 
calls it " clearly an unauthorized and surreptitious 
collection.'* Halliwell and £dmonds have examined 
each piece in the collection to assign its author, and 
out of the twenty-one pieces, five only have incontest- 
ably been traced to Shakespeare; eleven have no 
claim whatever, and five are allowed to otherauthors. 
Three of the poems, " As it fell upon a Day" " 1/ 
Music and sweet poetry agree^'' and " Whilst as fickle 
fortune smiled"^ first appeared in Richard Barn- 
field's "Encomium of Lady Pecunia," IC9S, and 
were assigned to him, though Collier contended they 
were Shakespeare's. See London Athenaeum, May 
17, 1856; Notes and Queries, July 5, 18 j6. Mr. 
Edmonds, in his preface to his reprmt, agam urges 
the claims of Barnfield as regards two of the pieces 
against the objections of Collier. 

Tkifo Copies Known, i. Capell's showing marks 
of use, and the date to Sonnets cut off, bound up 
with the Venus and Adonis of 1620, has a note whicn 
shows it cost a former owner, about the middle of 
the last century, three half-pence. Halliwell, in his 
" Shakespeare Stud^ Books," 1876, p. ^o, speaks of 
"a fac-simile tracing from the original copy in 
Trinity College Library," as being in his possession. 

2. Sir Charles Isham's, a fine copy, measuring 
4 5'^ X 3 i*^ inches, discovered in 1867 at Lam- 
port Hall. 

Reprintt. B. Lintot's '^ Collection of Poems, bein^ all 
the Miscellanies of Mr. W. Shakespeare," 1^09, gives this edi« 
tion as the one reprinted in some copies^ while the date on the 
reprinted title in others is 1609. Colher reprinted from this 
edition compared with the i6ia edition. 

The Ishara reprint, edited b/ Charles Edmonds, was iiaaed 
in 1870. See the Venus and Adonis of 1599. 

IGOi. A second edition is presumed from the 
edition of 161 2 being called "third edition," and 
Collier gives this as a possible date, but no copy 
has ever been discoverea. 

1612. The Passionate Pilgrime. Or Certaine 
Amorous Sonnets, between Venvs and Adonis, 
newly corrected and augmented. By W. Shake- 
spere. The third edition. Whereunto is newly 
added two Loue-Epistles, the first from Paris to 
Hellen, and Hellens answere backe againe to Paris. 
Printed by W. laggard. 



The book contains Thomas HeywoocTs version of Ovid in 
the ** Loue-Epistles," and it is said that on Heywood's remon- 
strance the printer cancelled this title-page, and substituted 
another, omitting the words " By W. Sh&espeare," and for 
this reason part of the edition is without author's name, while 
the copy in the Bodleian, which was Malone*S| has both titlesi 
and is the only one known with the two titles. 

Description. In i6mo. Sixty-two leaves. 


1609. Shake-speares Sonnets. Neuer before 
Imprinted. At London By G. Eld for T, T., and 
are to be solde by lohn Wright, dwelling at Christ 
Churchgate. 1609.

Aspley " in place of that of John Wright in the imprint. 

Description. Sig. A, two leaves ; text B to K in 
fours ; L, two leaves ; forty leaves in all. The 
book contains 154 sonnets ending on the recto of 
Ki, and on the verso begins "A louers Complaint. 
By William Shakespeare."

don, 1877. Aspley imprint. 

8. In the Earl of Ellesmere's Collection at Bridge- 
water House, London. It was sold, erroneously 
supposed to be duplicate, from this library in 1800, 
and bought back at Chalmers' sale, 1842, no. 935, 
for ;f 105, — Rodd speaking of it at that time to Mr. 
Barton, as " a most beautiful copy." AspUy imprint.

It was discovered the previous yeai by Professor 
Mommsen "in the dispersed Bentinck Library at 
Varel," near Oldenburg. See Westminster Review, 
July, 1857. Probably the copy described by Halli- 
well in 1857, as " quite perfect, firm and genuine 
throughout," which ne had taken "out of a volume 
of tracts collected in 1728, which was discovered in 
a library on the Continent," and Collier speaks of 
this '^ Swiss copy" as "peculiarly valuable, since 
there is but one copy in England, with this imprint, 
and from that the aate has unfortunately been cut 
away." Wright imprint.

Dibdin in his Bibliomania, ii. 600, without going into par- 
ticulars, says, " The history of the acquisition of the Joiley copy 
is one of smgular interest ; almost sufficient to add another day 
to a Bibliographical Decameron. The copy is in pristine con- 
dition, and looks as if snatched from the press." The title and 
dedication are represented, however, as in Harris's fac-simile.

Contgnts. To the reader, by I. B. ; Verses, by Leon Digges

Of the composition of the volume, the forthcom- 
ing Catalogue of the Barton Collection, in the 
Boston Public Library, says : 

The poems ascribed to Shakespeare are the Sonnets, with the 
exception of Nos. 18, 19, 43f S^*, 75» 7**96, 126, rearranged under 
various titles- Interspersed witn them are the I.over's Com- 
plaint and the Passionate Pilgrim, together with the verses from 
As You Like It, commencing " Why should this desart be." 
In addition to these are the following translations from Ovid: 
Cephalus and Procris, Menelaus was cause of his owne wrongs, 
Vulcan was lupiters smith, The.Mynotaure, Achilles his con- 
cealement of his sex, The epistles of Paris to Hellen, and Hellen 
to Paris. The last two were included in Jaggard's edition of 
The P^assionate Pilgrim published in i6i2,^ut Thos. Heyw 
wood, in his A|>ology for Actors, published in the^ same year, 
claims them u his owti, and they are to be found in his Troja 
Brittannica, printed in 1609. Lowndes says Some of these 
poems are copied from Thomas Hevwood's General History of 
Wumen. Following these are Milton's Epitaph, On the 
death of Shakespeare, by W. B., and An elegie on the death 
of that fiimous writer and actor, M. William Shakspeare. 

In the e<litions of Shakespeare's works published in 1710^ 
171^ 172^, 1807, 1810 (the last two in Boston) and of his Poema- 
published in \^^\y i775« <8<Hf th« poems ascribed to him in this 
edition are reprinted with the same arrangement and under tbd 
same titles, and also in other editions. 



Copies, I. In the Boston Public Library, Barton 
Collection ; has the portrait, two titles, and prelim- 
inary leaves ; is bound in dark blue morocco. Rodd, 
in sending it, wrote Dec. 13, 1839, that " the price 
will appear high, especially as compared with the 
prices in Lowndes, but I can readily dispose of it 
tor the price, £% i8x. 6f/., charged." Barton marked 
it, Feb., 1840, "Collated, perfect." 

2. In the Collection of Horace Howard Fumess of 
Philadelphia. It was Heber's, bringing at his sale

being cut less at the top and bottom), and the 
first title-page. It lacks the two pages To the 
Reader, signed I. B. ; the poems by L. Digges, three 
pages ; and the Poem by John Warren, one page. 
The second title-page is in facsimile^ far away (says 
the owner) the best fac-simiU I have ever seen. 
All the rest is perfect, very clean, and with measur- 
ably good margins : but the last four lines on the 
last page are added in MS., and at the foot of the 
page a note reads as follows : — "The MS. stanza 
at bottom of last page not in any printed copy — 

Aske me no more whither doth run 
When day is done the poostinj;^ sun ; 
For in your bright and sparklin^i eyes 
[His fires remain in love s disguise].

By Justin Winsor, Librarian of the University, 

In 1760, while HoTyoke was President of Harvard 
College, George the Second died, and George the 
Third succeeded to the throne. A few months later, 
at the instigation of Francis Bernard, the newly ar- 
rived royal Governor of the Province of Massachu- 
setts Bay, who was desirous of having its principal 
institution of learning follow the example of the Eng- 
lish Universities, the succeeding notice was posted in 
the College Chapel, Saturday, March 14, 1761 : — 



for a celebration of the Death of the late King, and 
the accession of his present Majesty, by members 
of Harvard College : — 

** Six guineas are eiven for a prize, of a guinea 
each, to the author ot the best composition of the 
following several kinds : — 

" I. A Latin Oration. 

2. A Latin poem in hexameters. 

3. A Latin Elegy in hexameters and pentameters. 
"4. A Latin ode. 

" 5. An English poem in long verse. 
"6. - 

An English ode. 


Other Compositions, beside those that obtain 
the prizes, that are most deserving, will be taken 
particular notice of. 

"The Candidates are to be all gentlemen, who 
are now members of said College, or have taken a 
degree within seven years. 

" Any Candidate may deliver two or more Com- 
positions of different kmds ; but not more than one 
of the same kind. 

'* That gentlemen may be more encouraged to try 
their talents upon this occasion, it is proposed that 
the names of the Candidates shall be kept secret, 
except those who shall be adjudged to deserve the 
prizes, or to have particular notice taken of their 
Compositions, and even these shall be kept secret if 

'* For this purpose, such Candidate is desired to 
send his Composition to the President, on, or be- 
fore, the first day of July next, subscribed at the 
bottom with a feigned name or motto, and, in a dis- 
tinct paper, to write his own name and seal it up, 
writing the feigpned name or motto on the outside. 
None of the sealed papers containing the real names 
will be opened except those that are adjudged to 
obtain the prizes or to deserve particular notice; 
the rest will be burned sealed." 

It does not appear how far all the conditions of 
this call were met ; but from the offerings was 

gleaned at least a part of the contributions to a 
volume which was m typography the handsomest 
specimen of the art as yet produced in the Colo- 
nies. It was in quarto, 116 pages, and the title 
read : — 

PiSTAS ET Gratulatio Collegii Cantabrigien- 
szs apud Novanglos. Bostoni-Massachu- 



The date of publication seems to have been put 
back a year, since it was published under a vote 
of the Corporation, Jan. 5, 1762, which directed 
" that the Collection m Prose and Verse in several 
Languages composed by some of the Members of 
the College, at the Motion of his Excy, our Governi", 
Francis Bernard, Esae, On Occasion of the Death 
of his late Majesty, a the accession of his present 
Majesty, King George the Third, be printed ; and 
that his Excy be desired to send, if he shall judge it 
proper, a copy of the same to Gr. Britain, to be 
presented to his Majesty, in the Name of the Cor- 

Bernard, as Governor, had a seat at the board of 
Overseers, and it is uncertain whether he or Lieu- 
tenant-Governor Hutchinson composed the dedi- 
cation to the King, which, notwithstanding the 
terms of the vote above quoted, is the only prose 
contribution in the volume. President Quincy, 
speaking of this address, says : '* Its style and turn 
of thought indicate the politician rather than the 
student, and savor of the senate chamber more than 
of the Academy." In May, 1763. Jasper Mauduit, 
the Agent of the Province in London, mentions 
** the presentation to his Majesty of the book of 
verses from the College ; " but nothing is known of 
any expression of acknowledgment on the part of 
the King. A copy, for which the claim was made 
that it was the one sent to the King, was No. 926 in 
the Odell Sale Catalogue, New York, 1878, Part I.; 
it had G. Rex surmounted with a crown, stamped 
on the back in six places. An ornament of some 
kind had been cut out on both sides of the cover. 
There were no marks of authorship attached to any 
of the pieces. A copy mentioned, No. 1767, in The 
Catalogue of the American Library of the late Mr. 
George Brinley^ First Part, 1879, ^^ described as 
bound in "old red morocco, sides with broad gilt 
borders, and the royal arms in the centre " Mr. 
Brinley had written in it : "This is one of the very 
few copies on thick paper, intended for presentation 
to the Royal Family." Another copy with a similar 
claim is marked N in the following list. 


It is said that copies on thicker paper were sent 
to England for the members of the Royal Family, 
and very likely entrusted to the care of Thomas 
HoUis, to be suitably bound, since the copy now in 
the " King's Collection '* in the British Museum — 
the library of George III., transferred by George 
IV. to that repository — bears in the ornament re- 
presenting Britannia, an impression from a die 
which Mollis seems to have had cut for his own 
use, and a number of books presented by Hollis to 
the College Library bear this same device on their 
covers. Of this copy, Mr. G. W. Porter, the Assist- 
ant Keeper of the Printed Books in the Museum 
library, writes to me as follows, — mentioning other 
copies at the same time : " We have three copies of 
the book in the Museum, — one in George the Third's 
library ; one presented in 1763 by Thomas Hollis, 
Esq. ; and one purchased in a collection of tracts. 
None of them, however, have any inscription or any 
mark whatever. The King's copy is a nne, tall one, 
handsomely bound in red morocco, having the royal 
arms on the sides, and the figure of Britannia, sur- 
mounted by a star, in each of the panels at the 
back. The arms and ornaments diner from those 
usuallv employed in the King's library, and in all 
probaoility the book was presented bound. It may 
very likely have been the one voted by the Corpora- 
tion of the College." 

President Holyoke also sent a copy to this same 
Thomas Hollis, m London, the well-known friend 
and benefactor of the College, and his letter 
and Hollis's reply are preserved in the Memoirs 
of Hollis, p. loi, under date Sept. 25, 1762. Holy- 
oke calls it "an attempt of several young gen- 
tlemen here with us, and educated in this College, 
to show their pious sorrow on account of the death 
of our late glorious King, their attachment to his 
royal house, the joy they have in the accession of 
his present majesty to the British throne, and in the 
prospect they nave of the happiness of Britain from 
the Royal Progeny which they hope for from his 
alliance with the illustrious house of Mechlenburg." 

The Greek type used in Nos. 15, 16, and 18, was, 
according to Thomas, History of Printing, 1874, 
vol. i., p. 63, the gift of Hollis tP the College about 
1 7 18. This was the only time it was used, and the 
font was destroyed on January 24th, 1764, when Har- 
vard Hall and the Library were burned. 

The Monthly Review for July, 1763. p. 22, in an 
extended and considerate notice of the book, says 
that the collection had not been advertised for 
sale in London, but that the Review had been fa- 
vored* with a copy of it ; and closes its article as ' 
follows: "It must be acknowledged, after all, that 
this New England Collection, like other public of- 
ferings of the same kind, contains many indifferent 
performances ; but these, though they cannot so well 
De excused when they come from ancient and estab- 
lished seats of learning, may, at least, be connived 
at here ; and what we could not endure from an il- 
lustrious University, we can easily pardon in an 
infant Seminary." 

The Critical Review^ for October, 1763, p. 289, 
speaks of the contributions as "not distmguished 
by the writers' names, like the verses from our own 
Universities." Referring to the prophecy of Amer- 
ica's future rank in letters, embodied in Governor 
Bernard's Epilogus, the reviewer closes : *' We wish 
this prophecy may, and have great reason to expect 
that it will, be fulfilled in due time, as the verses 
from Harvard College seem already to bid fair for 
a rivalship with the productions of Cam and Isis." 

The closing contribution of Governor Bernard 


deserves remembrance for its merits as well as for 
the prophecy : —

In some of the copies, a slip of paper, inserted at 
the end, mentions three verbal or literal errors on 
pp. 10, 24, and 45, and adds : " The last stanza of 
p. 72 [No. xxi.], in some copies, to be corrected 
thus: — 

" Luddos curms per aperta coeli 
Phoebus impellens, nee Avo videbat 
Clariorem ; nee, nisi per Nepotem, 

Viderit unquam." 

In all three of the College library copies this 
stanza reads in this corrected way ; but in the Bel- 
knap copy (Boston Public Library), it reads : — 

" Lucidos cumis per aperta coeli 
Phoebus impellens^ videt haud Georgo 
Clariorem ; nee, nisi per Nepotes, 

Viderit unquam." 

In the following list of the contributions to the 
volume, the names of the supposed authors are 
given, and after them certain letters, which indicate 
the authorities, according to this key : — 

A^ Monthly Anthology, Boston, June 1809, P- 
422. An article written oy Alexander H. Everett, 
who says the names "are mostly taken" from the 
Sewall copy, "and as he [Sewall] was, at the time 
when they were written, a member of College, and 
wrote several of them himself, are probably correct." 

A? Monthly Anthology, July, 1809, p. 67. In 
which the Rev. Dr. Samuel Deane of Portland, the 
only contributor then surviving, amends the list in 
the June number. 

A? This same number, p. 67, also contains an 
anonymous note, dated July 13, 1809, ^^ ^^ ^v^ 
ject with a partial list. 

B. Dr. Jeremy Belknap's copy, bearing his auto- 
graph and the date 1762, given in 1859 by his daugh- 
ter, Elizabeth Belknap, to the Boston Public Library, 
where it now is. It has marginal notes by Belknap, 
and names appended to most of the pieces. 

E. A copy formerly owned by Prof. McKean, 
bought at the sale of his library by the Rev. Mr. 
Greenwood, and after his death purchased by the 
late George Ticknor, and given by him to Mr. 
Dowse (according to a memorandum, made by Prof. 


C. E. Norton, from Mr. Ticknor's information, about 
1844); but such a copy is not now in the Dowse Col- 
lection of the Mass. Historical Society. The assign- 
ment of names is made on the authority of the Rev. 
Dr. John Eliot, as appears from a note by Prof. 
McKean, in the copy : *' The writers, as I have been 
informed by one well conversant with our civil and 
literary history, and as a scholar ranking first in 
the very first class (Dr. Eliot), were as follows : " 
A copy in Harvard College library, bound with 
others, given in 1853 by Epes S. Dizwell, Esq., 
seemingly once the prop>erty of Dr. Eliot, for it has 
his autograph on the fly-leaf, has no annotations 

B? A copy in a volume of Tracts, given to the 
Harvard College Library by Samuel A. Eliot in 
1845, this particular copy bearing the name on the 
title, "Samuel Eliot, 1762." The names at the 
end of the several pieces, and other notes seem 
to be in the same hand, and the names correspond 
in such way to those pven in the Belknap copy 
that it is evident the mformation came from the 
same source. One of the notes, common to both 
copies, is curious. In No. xi., p. 35, is this coup- 

** Here he reetnin'd the Indiai^s thint of gore, 
And bid the murd'rons tomaz drink no more." 

Against tomax is written, " Compounded of toma- 
hawk and ax." 

The connection of the Belknap and Eliot fam- 
ilies was near. Belknap a few years later (1767) 
married Ruth, the sister of this Samuel Eliot, who 
was the founder of the Eliot professorship, and who 
became a prominent merchant in Boston. He was 
cousin of the Rev. John Eliot, named under E. 
Samuel Eliot was the grandfather of President Eliot. 

H. A copy in Harvard College Library, which 
seems to have been specially bound as a memorial. 
In it has been inserted by the late Librarian, T. W. 
Harris, 1836^ a transcript of the ** Proposal," and an 
" Index " of the writers, made out by the Rev. Dr. T. 
M. Harris, '' as I was told," says Prof. Norton's memo- 
randum, "by his son. Dr. T. W. Harris." In a few 
instances, the writine is in pencil, perhsms later, and 
these are indicated by an asterisk, u*. Harris 
owned the Sewall copy. 

Ii. A copy in the possession of the Rev. Robert 
Lowell of Schenectady, grandson of the writer of no. 
vii., who says the assignments of authorship in it are 
" apparently in the handwriting of my great-grand- 
father. Rev. John Lowell, of Newbury, Class of 
1721." This graduate died in 1767, and was the 
father of the contributor of no. vii. 

M. The Massachusetts Historical Society's copy, 
with names in pencil in a late hand, apparently fol- 
lowing some earlier authority, and corresponding in 
some respects with the copy H. The early pro- 
ceedings of the Society show that this copy was 
given to it by Dr. Belknap in 1791. 

N. A copy in the New York Historical Society, 
which being bound in morocco, gilt leaves, with the 
Royal arms stamped on the cover, and the book- 
plate of Carlton House Library within, is held to 
De the one presented to the King. It contains only 
two assignments of authorship, nos. xi. and xvi. 

S. A copv marked by Prof. Stephen Sewall, one 
of the contributors, and given by him to the late Dr. 
T. M. Harris, who, in a letter to Mr. Ticknor, calls 
Sewall "the most accomplished Classical Scholar 
of the day, which our College or Country could 

P. A copy bearing on the fly-leaf, in President 
Holyoke's hand. " Edvardi Holyoke Liber ; " be- 

neath which a further inscription points out the 
present owner, — *' Illius, Universitatis Harvardi- 
anae Praesidis clarissimi, nepos, Fredericus Henricus 
Hedge, Amico suo, antiquitatum Nov-Angliae cul- 
tori perdocto, Georgio fi. Ellis, S.T.D." The au- 
thors' names are given in the President's hand at 
the end of some of the pieces. 

W. A copy which belonged to Prof. John Win- 
throp, and was subseouently owned by the late 
George Ticknor ; but those marked W». are writ- 
ten, in that copy, in another hand than Winthrop's.

was probably the Joseph Taylor of the Class of 
1765 (died 1816) ; in which case he was a freshman 
at the time, aged fifteen years. The Lowell copy

Monthly Review held that these verses, " though 
said to be written by a youthful son of Harvard, 
are allowed to be nervous, and we cannot but 
congratulate the College on so promising a pupil." 


Lowell had graduated in 1760. He was the grand- 
father of Prof. James Russell Lowell, and of the 
Rev. Robert Lowell. The late Rev. Dr. Charles 
Lowell added to the Lowell copy, against his ances-

prominence as an opponent of ministerial measures, 
subsequently incurred the displeasure of Bernard, 
who a few years after they were thus associated to-

Cambkldqk, Mass., Jan. 30, 1879. 

Dear Sir, — The cost of the upparatus required 
for exact qaantitative determinations in the Tarioos 
branches of Physics has always been a serious ob- 
stacle to tlie prosecution of inrestigations in 
which a high degree of precision is necessary. 
We ask your faTorable consideration of a plan by 
which this difficulty may, to a great extent, be 
remedied. Almost every university or large college 
in our countiy possesses one or more pieces of 
apparatus suitable for research. We propose to 
publish in the Library Bulletin of Harvard Univer- 
sity, a list of such apparatus as complete as it is 
possible to obtain, and to enlarge and correct this 
list front time to time as occasion may require. 
Will you aid the cause of science by furnishing t» 
with ji concise list of such apparatus as you possess 
or which mnyhe under your control, and which 
you are vrilling to place, with such restrictions as 
you may deem necessary, at the disposal of any 
properly qualified person for the purposes of inves- 
tigation ? In mentioning any particular instrument, 
be so good as to give the name of the maker and 
his place of residence, and to characterize the ap- 
paratus in such a manner that its precise availability 
and adaptation to a special research may be clearly 
seen. Thus the apertures and focal lengths of the 
telescope and collimator of a spectroscope should 
be given, together with the magnifying powers, the 
number, sices, and character of the prisms, and any 
special arrangements and accessories which increase 
the range of the instrument. In the case of a 
spectrometer, in addition to the above, the limit of 
precision in angular reading should be stated and 
whether the readings are by verniers or by microm- 
eters. We propose to embrace in our list only ap* 
paratus relating to the subjects of Heat, Light, 
Electricity, Magnetism, and Sound. We do not ask 
for any statement of the restrictions you may be 
obliged to place upon the use of die apparatus under 
your control. That is a matter which may be settled 
between applicants aod yourself or the authori- 
ties in charge of your institution. Asking the 
favor of an early answer, — which may be addressed 
to either of the undersigned, — we are, with sincere 
respect and regard, very truly yours,

For the use of this apparatus application may be made 
to Professor A. M. Mayer. 

1 . Apparatus for the determination of coefficients of 
4'xpansion, Consists of the tube (invented by Pro- 
cessor Mayer) to hold the rod under measurement. 
This tube is so constructed that the rod up to its 
terminal planes is kept permanently at the tempera- 
ture of melting ice, or at the boiling-point, or at any 
intermediate temperature by passing a current of 
water or hot oil through the tube ; at the same time 
the terminal planes of the rod are exposed for abut- 
ment against micrometer screws, &c. The rod 
is supported in the tube at quarters of its length 
from its ends, and the weight of tube and enclosed 
rod is taken off the V's of the apparatus by straps 
and spring balances. 

The measuring part of the apparatus is entirely distinct, 
and at a distance from the tube. The tube is only 
placed in contact with the measuring apparatus at 
the moment of making the measurement 

The measures are made by Saxton's reflecting 
comparator, or by micrometer screws brought up to 
the ends of the rod, and contact determine by the 
closing of a voltaic circuit. 

Successive contacts, made by successively placing 
the rod (cooled to melting ice), give a range of meas-

Apparatus for excuA Aft-asurements, 

1. Pendulum myographion, modified from Fisk's: 
available for the measurement and analysis of 
rapid morements. The instrument consists essen- 
tially of a pendulum carrying a glass plate at the 
bottom, swinging on friction rollers, and corrected 
for the latitude of Baltimore, so as to swing in one 
second. Behind the pendulum is a divided arc, 
and the amplitude of the swing can be varie<l from 
a few inches to four feet. In use, an electro-magnet 
is moved along the divided circle, and then — the 
current being closed through it — the pendulum on 
being raised is held by it. On the other side is a 
catch, also movable along the arc. By turning a 
key at the side, the current in the electro-magnet is 
broken, and tlie pendulum swings across, and is held 
by the catch on the other side. During its transit, 
the movement to be analyzed is inscribed on the 
glass plate, which is previously smoked. Designed 
by A. 6. Dewsmith, Esq., Trinity College, Cam- 
bridge, England. Made by Elliott, London.

School ; the others belonging to the series, 1624, 1633, 1641, 
1663, and also the edition of Curcellxus ( 1658). which was from 
the Elsevir press, are accessible in a private library in Cambridge. 
Of these, the first and second are especially rare ; the first bein^ 
generally regarded by the critical editors as the proper repe- 
seniative of the so-called *'Textus Receptns** or Received 
Text, a phrase borrowed from the preface ot the second edition 
(1633) — *'Textum ergo habes nunc ab omnibus receptum.** 
There are small differences in the text of the different editions.

The Author J. M. Licensed and entred \sic\ ac- 
cording to Order. London. 1668. sm. ^. 

The first edition of this poem consisted of thirteen hundred 
cf^es, which were issued by instalments at eight (says Bohn) 
nr nine (says Maaaon) times, with different titles and preliminary 
matter, duting t66;r, 1668, and 1669. The text of copies varies 
I'ftener than the titles and preliminary matter, as corrections 
were apparently made as the work progressed through the presx. 
and, in binding^up these instalments, corrected and uncorrectea 
sheets were indiscriminately mixed. The present copy does not 
corre^iond to either variety as described by the bibliographers. 
It has what is called in Bohn's Lowndes, the third title-page, 
following which should come, according to that authority, tne 
text, but intervening between the title-leaf and text, are seven 
leaves containing the Printer's Address to the Reader (five lines, 
— some issues have it in three linesX the Argument, the Verse, 
and the Errata. These seven leaves correspond ra matter to 
what Bohn gives as the proper accompaniment of the sixth title- 
page, and they are like tne copies of that title which an- owned 
by the Public Librarv of Boston and Mr. Charles Deaoe. The 
Sumner copy has " Jane Goddard " written on the title, and the 
bindinfr, though oki, b seemingly not the original one, and unless 
this 00^ y maraa another variety, either the title or the prelimi- 
aary matter haa been added in binding to the text ab fin»t put

The title of this work is given at length under Huttich, bat 
it is. more frequently quotra as Grynaeus^ Novus orhis after 
the author of the preface. The printer's note at the end. 
reads : " Basileae per lo. Hervagivm mense novembri. anno 

The present copy, bound by Qark and Bedford in full mo- 
rocco, lacks the map properly belonging to it, according to Har- 
risse and the Carter-Brown catalogue, and bears the autcMnraphs 
of previous owners, " Henri Cooke," "Tho. Smith," and "Ino: 
Gray," — the latter the English poet, who writes at the end, 
•'cojjt me, o~ I — 9," and on the title, **This Collection waa 
originally published by Montalboddo Fracanzano of Vicenza (in 
the Italian tongue) under the title of Mondo Nucvo, 8°, 1507, 
addressed to Gianmaria Angioletto, his countryman. They were 
tum'd into T^tin by Arcangeto Madrignano, a monk of Cara- 
valle in the Milanese, &pubIishM at Milan in 150S, reprinted at 
Paris in 1532 by Simon Grynaeus, in Folio; and now repeated at 
Basil in 1537." The marginal references of Gray are chiefly the 
English equivalents of Latin terms of geography and natu- 
ral history ; but at the section on Columbus he writes : ** The 
voyages of Columbus were written by a Spanish gentleman, who 
went embassadour from Strain to the Sultan of Egypt: they 
were translated out of Spanish into Italian by Angelo Trivigiano, 
who had a personal friendship with Columbus V Again, against 
the narrative of Marco Polo, he adds: "The original of these 
curious Travels was in Latin, written by a Genoese nobleman 
(from the mouth of y* traveller himself) in the year 1398. As 
copies of this work were very scarce Fra Pipino, a Bolognese, 
tum'd the Italian translation of it (w«^ was then common) into 
Latin, w* is the same here printed. Besides the barbarity of the 
style it is very erroneous & defective so that Ramusio thought 
proper to publish it in Italian (from an old MSS.) in the 2** vol- 
ume of his valuable Collection ; and in 1671 And : MuUer printed 

in I^atin {>erhap8 the original found in the Elector of Brandeo* 
bourg's Library." Gray seems to have read this section with 
care, and to have collated (apparently by the color of the inks at 
different times) the geographical names with what he calb 
•* MSS." Mason, IVorks of Thomas Gray, London, 1827, p. 
273, says that Gray, evly in life, had an intention of publishing 
an edition of Strabo, and that ne left a great number of geo- 
graphical disquisitions and copious^ notes with respect to Persia 
and India, and concerning the ancient and modem names and 
divisions. The C^ollege Library has another copy [1354.27] dL 
this edition, likewise lacking the map, — the pft of Saifiuel A. 
Eliotf in 1823, with the Warden Library. ^ 

This 1537 edition is described in Harrisse, Bibi. Amer VgL 
no. 223 (who is in error in making the unnumbered iireliminary 
leaves 24) ; Carter-Brown Catalogue, no. 123 ; Weigel's 1877 
Catalogue; Muller's 1877 Catalogue, no. 1306; and there are 
other copies in the Cornell (Sparks Collection)^ Lenox, Carter- 
Brown, S. L. M. Barlow, and J. C. Brevoort Libraries 

It contains, pp. 585-600 (should be $87-602), in addition to the - 
earlier editions ot 1532, a letter of Maximilian of Transylvania on 
Magellan's Voyage, 15 19-1522, referred to in the title as having 
been undertaken under the auspices of the Emperor Charles. 

The first edition of this collection was issued at Basle in 1532, 
and is described in Harrisse, no. 171 ; Carter-Brown Catalogue, 
no. 101 ; and there are copies in Harvard College (lacking seven 
leaves of the preliminary matter — 1354.28), Boston Public, Len- 
ox, Astor, Carter- Urown, and Barlow Libraries 

The Harvard College co}w of this 1532 edition has no map, 
and there seems to be some (k>ubt, notwithstanding the mention 
in the title, if there was one. Upon this point see Harrisse, p. 
293, and the Carter- Brown Catalogue, p. loS where the map is 
described as bearing the name of Orontius Fixueus, with the date, 
July. 153 1. 

There was a Paris edition of this same year, 1532, of which 
there are copies in the Lenox, Barlow, and Carter-Brown Libra- 
ries. See Harrisse, no. 172, and the Carter- Brown Catalogue, 
no. 102. The Lenox Library has a second variety of this edition, 
which is ipven in Harrisse, no. 173, with a description of the 
map. This Paris edition does not vary in text from the Basle 
edition. Cf- Sabin's Dictionary, ix. p. 28. 

In 155^, there was another edition printed at Basle with addi- 
tions beside those taken from the 1537 edition, namely, the sec- 
ond and third of the Cortes narrations, letters on the propagation 
of the Gospel amon^ the Indians, etc; making this the most 
complete eoition. It is described in the Carter- Brown Catalogue, 
no. 202 ; and a copy is in the Eberling Collection in Harvard 
College Library [1354.29]. In the map, North America, sepa- 
rated Iw water from South America, takes the place of Cuba, is 
called Terra de Cuba, and runs north and south from about lo** 
N. to near 50*^ N-, and about 10° wide, except where a depres* 
sion on the eastern side indicates the Gulf of Mexico. The 
region of Newfoundland and I^brador is represented as an 
island. Terra Cortesia, in mid ocean. The map is said to be the 
same as that in the 1537 edition, but it really represents the state 
of geographical knowledge of an earlier date. There are also 
copies of this 1555 edition in the Boston Public Library, in the 
Boston Athenaeum, in the Astor Library, etc. 

A reprint of the portion relating to America was issued at 
Rotterdam in 1616, with a dissertation ** Super Ophyra regione " 
[Peru] by Varrerius (Cvaspar Barreiros) appended, and Harvard 
College Library has a copy. Cf. Carter-Brown Catalogug, 
Part n. no. no; Graesse, iv. 699; Bruntt^ iv. 132. 

There were also German and Dutch translations issued in 
1534 and 1563 respectively. Cf. Sabin's Dictionary , ix. p. 31. 
The German one is in Harvard College Library [ x 354*3 >>]• The 
version was made by Michael Herr, and Sabin, ix. p. 30, says it 
is rarer than the original Latin. It has no map, omits sdso 
MUnster's Jniroductio to the map; and enlarges the selection 
from Peter Martyr, over the other editions, and substitutes a 
preface bv Herr for that by Gryiixus. There are also copies 
m the Library of Congress and in the Carter- Brown C'OlIection. 
Cf. Harrisse, Bib. Amer. Vgt. na 188, and references there.

This book formerly belonged to the poet Milton ; the margins 
throughout bear his MS- notes in Latm and Greek, and at the 
end he haa added an alphabetical index, occupying two closely 
written page^ of all the authors cited (except Homer and Pin- 
darX wiih references to the different places where they are men- 
tioned in the annotations. See printed notice pasted on the 
inside of the front cover. There is ^so inserted the following : 

"This book (Pindar) I purchased at Messrs. Sotheby's, Aoe. 

{;, 1S71, my opponent being Mr. Addington, the well-known el- 
ector of autographs. Mr. Waller, the dealer in autographs, 
told me after the sale, that he had no doubt about the notes be- 
ing Milton's writing. After its purchase I had an opportunity 
afrorded me of comparing this volume with the Lycophron 
bought for Mr. Forster at Lord Charlemont's sale. The writing 
compared very satisfactorilv therewith, when the nature of the 
paper on which the Lycophron is printed is taken into consider^ 
ation, it being nearly like blotting paper and very difficult to 
write upon. And in another way this Lycophron afforded a 
strong piece of drcumstantial evidence, as in this Pindar certain 
passages 0^ Lycophron occurring at certain pages^ are referred 
t«i ; and aH these passages are to be found exactly at the pages 
as referred to in the MS. notes in this book. 

** The date given as the time occupied in the pemsal (see end 
of book, before Errata), viz. : Tun. 17, i6jo to Sept. aS, 16)0, 
was part of a forced interval of leisure, which Milton was com- 
pelled to uke during his University career, owing to the Mas- 
ters, Fellows, and students, all having fled from Cambridge dur^ 
ing the ravaees of a fearful epidemic From Apr- to the end of 

Nov. tty>t Cambridge was completely deserted. (See Masson's 
fe of Milton, Vol. Ip aoo*)

This book was once owned by Dr. Johnson, whose autecniph, 
I* .Sam : Johnson /'* is written on the title ; as also the follow- 
ing inscription, showin^^ it also to have belonged to the &mous 
Isaac Casaubon and his son : " Merico Casaubono Filio dedit 
Is. Casaubonus." The margins have numerous annotations in 
ink, partly cut off in trimming, which seem to be rather in the 
hanos of the earlier owners than of Johnson. 

Mark Pattison in his Life 0/ Isaac Casattbam mentions two 
books in the British Museum bearing Casaubon's marginal ann<v 
tations, p. 117, a copy of Calvin's "Epistolae," and p. 499. one 
of Bodin's *' Theatrum ; '* and ix 482, he says of Casaubon's 
books, " The printed books whicn belonged to him were scored 
under and marked anyhow to catch the eye in turning over the 
leaves. The blank pages, the title-page, or anv page, served to 
hold a reference. Hence, while the scholar holds among his 
choicest treasures a Greek volume with marginal corrections in 
Scalieer's hand, a volume which has belon^d to Casaubon is 
merely defaced by the owner's marlu and memoranda." llie 
library has also a copjr of the 1577 edition. 

Mr. Pattison adds in a letter, after tracings of the annotations 
had been submitted to him : " In my * Isaac Casaubon,' p. 11 t, 
you will see that Plautus' (^oteivei is named as one of the sub- 
lects on which I. C. lecturea at Montpellier in January, 1S98. 
In his Ephemerides, L p. 64, he enters what is^ like an apoI<«r 
to ** Deus immortalis' tor occupying himself with a book, whiob 
he thought not adapted for edification, and slates that he took it 
* at the request of the students.' I should not be surprised to 
ftnd that your volume is the very volume read and marked by 
him at Montpellier, on occasion of this lecture. ... It has an 
interest for me in the fact that I. C, who in ij(oS had thought 
Plautus an undesirable book for a class-book, did not at a later 
time think it an improper book to put into the hands of his young 
"^ Meric was only 15 at the time of his father's death."

cmies, see Etwin's Introduction to his IVorks 0/ Fo^, vol- i. 

The corrections noted in this copy, wh<ch are largely trans- 
positions, with some verbal chango,^ seem to be those for the 
most part embodied in the 173^ edition. Many of the varia- 
tions are noted in Elwin' s edition ; but a few of these MS. 
changes have no record there; they are not, however, of im-

This edition is not mentioned by Bninet, Graesse, Hain, or 
Panxer. Its date may have been somewhere about 1480. In 
this copy, the initials are finished by hand in red and blue ink. 
and on the tide folio are finely ornamented. On the inside of 
the front cover is the seal of " C van Baviere, Facult Juris

On the fly-leaf, Mr. Sumner has written a portion of the title, 
and beside the date of his acquiring it, November, 1873, he 
refers to a copy of this little book being in the show-cases of 
the^ British museum, and gives extracts from the descriptions 
of it in Bruneiy ii. 317, and in the Catalogue 0/ the reserveH 
portion ef the Lihri eoUectum, 186a, p. 8. 

This fragment contains the passages which give the book its 
peculiar interest, wherein the prqposidon is first made to name 
the new continent after Amengo Vespucd, e.g.^ stg. C i, recto : 
" Quam quia Americas inuenit Amerigen | quasi Americi 
terrS | sine Americam nuncupare licet." Sig. C 3. verso : 
" Nunc vero & hec partes sunt latius lustratx | & alia quarta 
pars per America Vesputium (ut in sequentibus audietur) in- 
nenta est ; quS non video cur ^uis iure vetet ab Americo inuen- 
tore sagacis ingenij viro Amen^en quasi Americi terram | siue 
Americaun dicendam ; cum St Europa & Asia a midieribus sua 
surtita sint nomina.*' 

The naune, which soon appeared in books and maps attached 
to South America, was not extended to North America till 
Ortelius applied it in his great atlas, 1570. 

There is some variation about the eariiest issues of this book 
among the Inbliographers. The Carter-Brown catalo^e, p. ^St 

fives H. C. Murphy's results of collation, taking issue witn 
>avezac in his Martin Hylaceu^lus. Harrisse, Bib. amer. 
vet.y no. 44, gives an edition^ represented in the Eyries copy in 

Erivate hands in Lyons, and m a fragment in the Mazarin library, 
ut he "failed to secure a collation/* AU agree there were two 
editions in 1507, differing in arrangement and showing by their 
colophons that they were issued respectively in May and Sep- 
tember of that year. 

The May issue is Harrisse, no. 45 : Carter-Brown^ no. 28 ; 
Bninet, ii. 317; Ternauz, no. 10; and there are copies in the 
Lenox, H. C. Murphy, and Carter-Brown libraries. The fold- 
ine map of the skeleton globe in this edition has on the reverse 
a description in twelve lines of roman tjrpe. 

The September issue has this description on the map in 
fifteen lines. It u Harrisse, no 46 ; Carter-Brown, no. 39, and 
there are copies in the Lenox and Carter-Brown libraries, in 
that of Charles Deane, and the present fragment in Harvard 
college library, which has a few MS. notes in an ancient hand, 
llie Carter- Brown copy was Ternaux's- 

The Lenox library toa also an edition with the same date, but 
varying slightly otherwise, which is described in Harrisse, no. 
47, who, however, considers it as made up of two editions, his 
nos. 44 and 46. 

In 1509, another edition in black-letter was issued at Strasburg 
by the printer John Griini^er, as stated in the colophon, and 
this is Harrisse, no. 60 ; Carter-Brown, no. 40 ; Ternaux, no. 

a; Brunet, ii. 319; and there are copies in the Lenox, S. L. 
. Barlow, Carter- Brown, Coxisres^ (Force collection) and 
Harvard college libraries. The latter copy was received from 
Obaduih Rich m 1830, and has the inscription on the back of the 
map in black-letter, fourteen lines. Harrisse says, some copies 
have it in fifteen. The text of this edition was followed by 
Navarrete, in his Coleccion de los viages^ iii. 183, 190, with 
Spanish translation and notes. 

The Lenox and Barlow libraries have also an edition, printed 
at Lyons, 1510, which is Harrisse, no. 63. 

Tne^ author of the Introduciio was professor in the college at 
St. Di^, but the account following that portion was Vespucci's 
own narrative of his several voyages, written Sept. 4, 1504, after 
his return from his last one and rendered into Latin. See 
accounts of Waldseemiiller in Lelewel^s Meyen Age^ p. 14a ; and 
Davetac's Martin Hylacomylus. 

This Latin version of Vespucci's narrative was repeated in the 
Nevus orhis of Gryncus, Basle, 1533 ; in De Bry, in an abridged 
form, and in other of the genenU collections of voyages of that 
century. The story, in Italian, was published in Italy not long 
after (1516?) as Lettera di Amerigo Vespucci^ and this has 
been reprinted in Bandini's Vita e Wteretti Amerigo Vespucci^ 
Florence, 174s (in Harvard college library, — also a German 



translatJonf 1748), and in Canovai's Viaggi d* Amtricc Vet- 

<ucci, 1817.^ Raniusio only gives the third and fourth voyages, 
^amhagen in his work on Vespucci, Lima, 18651 would seem to 
have followed) perhaps, the original Italian as given out by 
Vespucci himself. In this narrative, we have as tar as known 
the only accounts of th0 first and fourth voyages- The texts of 
these various publications vary somewhat, and Harrisse, Bi6. 
atfur. vtt.^ p. 56, collates them on certain points. Of the 
second and third voyages we have earlier accounts ; — of the 
second( 14^1-1 500) that m Bandini, from a MS- in the Riccardiana 
library which is supfxised to have been written by Vespucci him- 
self in July, 1500, and of the third (1501) the narrative published 
by Bartolozzi, in 1789, in his Ricercfu istorico-crUick* {jitk 
Harvard college library) which is thought to be the communica- 
tion Vespucci made about it to Lorenzo de M edict In 1^04, the 
navigator himself published an extended narrative of this third 
voyage, addressed to the same patron, which is now usually known 
as the Mundus novus^ and is of interest, as from it he gained the 
credit of having been the first to discover the mam land of 
America, though Pinzon and Cabral had been before him on 
this same coast of Brazil. There were various issues of this 
Mundus HOVMS in Latin (one of which, Harrisse* s, no. 29, is in 
Harvard college library), Dutch and Cicnnan within the next 
four or five years, and Harrisse, the Carter-Brown catalogue, 
and Muller*s catalogues, show them. Of the third voyage, there 
was still another account by Vespucci, varying a little, and it is 
given in Ramusio and in other places, enumerated in Harrisse, 

E. 63, and see p. 64, note loa, for other references. Baldelli in 
is // mi/uftu di Marco PUo^ 1877, published still another

This manuscript was formerly in the possession of Baron

(ii. 104). It was bonght at the sale of his library in 1871 by 
Shia A White for £w, and was pnrchased for tiiis librsiy 
by the Dante society for £25. It has Ijatin annotations in the 
margin which Colomb de Batines considers to be in the same 
hand aa those in the codex laorenziana, Plut. xl. no. ii. 
From an inscriptf on in the end it appears to have belonged to 
the Grimaldi fomify of Genoa.

Tlie first Florentine edition. The first fourteen leaves (of 
which the first and last are blank) contain various introductory 
matters, which will be found also in the editions of 1481, 1403, 
1497, 1507, 1529, 1564, 1578 [noa. 6, 7, 8. xa, 15, 19, aa], as 
well as in other editions not included in this catalogue. 

The two engravings (by Baccio Baldini ft-om designs by 
Botticelli) are at the oeginning of the first two cantos of tlie 
Inferno. Space is left for an illustration at the beginning of 
each canto and some copies of this edition have as many aa 
nineteen, twenty, or twen^-one inserted, but none have more 
than this. The first cantos of the Inferno and Purfi^orio 
of Professor Norton's copy have each an elaborate illuminated 
initial : that of tbe Inferno contains a portrait of Dante, and 
In the ornament on the margin is the golden shield oif the 
Medici bearing the seven b^ls of Piero de' Medici. As he 
died in 1400 the copy probably belonged to one of his chil- 
dren, previous to the cliange made by Lorenzo de* Medici in 
the number of the balls. Colomb do Batinea gives a careAil 
bibliographical description (i. MhLA) and mentions all the 
copies of note Icnown to him. 

Prof. Norton's copy is bound In three 'Volumee, that in Mr.

At the beginning of the Inferno is a ftall-page wood-cut, and 
smaller ones stand at the head of each canto. Thej are the 
same in design as those of the editions of 1491, 1403, etc. but 
on a larger scale and engraved with finer execution. The 
first ten leaves contain prolegomena like the earlier editions. 
At the end of the Paradiso are given the Credo, the Pater

The first edition of Dante of small size. All the editions 
of the fifteenth century had been folios. Tliis contains neither

Lombardi spent many years of his life in preparing this 
edition of the Divina commedia. He consulted all the best 
editions and many valuable manuscripts unknown to the 
AccademiA della CS-usca whose edition was published in lfi06. 
The latter had been generally accepted as of the greatest 
accuracy, but Lombardi introduced man^ new readings and 
his text has been adopted as the basis of most modem 

This copv belonged to Lombardi himself and contains nu- 
merous ana important additions in xs. as he meditated a new 
edition. They were but partially used in the edition printed 
at Borne by De Romams In 1815-16 [no. 4a]. A compli- 
mentarv letter from Cardinal Borgia to Lombard! is placed 
in the nrst volume.

£E. (2). 

This is supposed to be to Arthur Lee from the superscription 
being the same which is used as a cover by Bridgen and Jen- 
nings to conceal their communications. The tone of the letter, 
however, as well as of that of June 8 (on p. 143), is of a sym- 
pathizer with Great Britain. If this were lor purposes of con- 
cealment, probably the letter of June 8 was to Lee also. But it 
would seem that Lee and Thornton had no communication with 
each other at ibat time ; as appears by Papers In relation to the 
case of Silas Deane, p. 163, and Ridley's letter of June 3 (see 
p. 140 of this volume).

The following list comprises the titles of the more important general and special Floras in the Uni- 
Tersitj Library. Of course it is impracticable to present in such a catalogue as this the names of the 
numerous memoirs upon Systematic Botany, published in the proceeding^ of Societies and in the Journals. 
This is simply an attempt to answer questions frequently asked respecting the systematic treatises upon 
the vegetation of different countries. The order is that employed in the second edition of Pritzel's 
Thesaurus Literaturct Botaniaz. The yolumes in Gore Hall are marked L. : those at the Herbarium are

This work was a posthumous one, executed under 
the provisions of the author's will. Thirty copies 
of the first seven volumes were printed under the 
editing of James Edward Smith, that being the num- 
ber of the original subscribers ; but death or other 
causes had diminished the number, so that .of the 
last three volumes, issued under John Lindley's 
direction, the edition was only twenty-one copies. 
It would otherwise seem that the long term over 
which its publication extended, had occasioned 
some fragments of the entire work to be printed 
without corresponding completions, and in 1846 
enough was re-issued under Henry J. Bohn's care, 
to render an additionally small number of copies 
available (perhaps not exceeding forty in all), which 
were now sold at sixty guineas, the original price 
having been £264. These later copies are exactly 
like the earlier in text and imprint, though perliaps 
inferior in the coloration of the plates. The reis- 
sued portions are distinguishable by the dates in 
the water-mark of the paper. The engraving of 
the 966 plates was all done by the noted Bauer. In 
both issues, the number of copies was restricted 
to absolute subscribers, such having been the pro- 
visions of Sibthorp's will. 

The copy in the College library was bought with 
the money bequeathed by the late James Brown, Esq., 
that in the Herbarium library was the gift of John 
Amory Lowell, Esq. A third copy in the library of 
the Boston Society of Natural History was the gift 
of BenJ. D. Green, Esq. The Massachusetts Hor- 
ticultural Society, Boston, has likewise a copy. 
There are also copies in the Astor library and 
library of Congress.

The libraries at the Herbarium and at Gore Hall 
contain many of the more rare ante-Li ndffian works 
on descriptive botany. The copies in. most cases 
are in excellent preservation, and complete. The 
following are placed by Jessen in the first section of 
the German Flora (veteres), but, curiously enough, 
no second section is made, or rather no line is drawn 
between the old and the new.

sentative works.

The editor enumerates in his introduction the various MSS. 
of Rishanger known to exist, among which, no. 6 is, *' De bellis 
Lewes et Evesham," the chronide printed in this volume. 
Rishangar also touches upon the history of this period in his 
continuation of Matthew Paris's Chronicle. Cf. also the Ris- 
hanger Chronicle iu the master of the rolls series ; that of 
Robert of Gloucester ; Sir Thomas Duffus Hardy's CaialogH* 
of original material^ vol. 3, and his Syltahus of Rymer^s 

Halliwell refers to the memoir of Montfort by the Rev. Sam- 
brook Nicholas Russell, in Nichols's History of Leicestershire^ 
and adds "a critical history of Montfort' s eventful life is a desid- 
eratum in our literature." Since 1840, much has been done to 
correct the impressions derived from lory historians like Hume ; 
and the hi&her view of him given in tne Pictorial history of 
En^land^ book IV, ch. i., now more generally obtains. Dr. 
.Shirley, m the London quarterly review^ Jan., 1866, gave 
an appreciative estimate of him, which likewise characterizes the 
recent lives by Pauli, the German historian, of which there is 
an English translation, 1876, and by Pothero, who is fuller than 
Pauli, and has ptarticular reference to the parliamentary history 
of Montfort's time. See also Stubb's ConstiiutiontU history 
of England, and his edition of Select charters^ which has a 
valuable introduction. Blaaw's Baroni wars particularly 
elucidates the military as[>ects of the time ; the English transla- 
tion of Pauli gives, p. 150, a note on the authorities of the 
battle of Lewes ; and Pothero gives plans of both Lewes and 

6. HazTO'wiiig of hell. A miracle play written in

' The earliest existing dramatic composition in the English 
lanipiage." The MS. is in the British museum, Harleian col- 
lection, no. 3253. Collier in 1836 printed a private edition of 
twenty-five copies. Laing printed the same number of copies 
from a more modem transcript in the Auchinleck MSS. at 
Edinburgh, which Halliwell has used in collation.

Halliwell in his preface says that this poem is very similar in 
style to the poem printed by him in his Early history offree^ 
masonry in England^ and ne is inclined to think that the two 
poems may be the work of the same writer. It illustrates the

1590, which is taken from the preceding novel of Straparola; 

— 6. From IVestward/or smeltSy i6ao. 
There are other reprints of this play in Halliwell's folio ed. of 

Shakespeare, ii, 219, and in the Cambridge ed., voL i. It is 
facsimiled in the series noted under 1862-71. 

Halliwell printed from the Bodleian copy. Four copies are 
known, — in the duke of Devonshire's collection, in the Bodleian, 
in the library of Trinity college, Cambridge, and that which 
brought £z^(y los at the Daniel sale in 1864, and is now in the 
British museum. Halliwell has latterly entertained the view 
that this play does not represent a first sketch, but "an unfair 
and frafrmentary copy of the perfect drama." There is a diversity 
of opinion upon this point. See Winsor's Bibliography of 
Shakespeare^ p. 48.

According to Halliwell, this is probably a modernized version 
of an older English romance, which was itself translated from 
the French, ft contains an allusion to Veland, one of the 
heroes of northern mythology, who is only mentioned in one 
other English poem (the romance of Horn). The Berkshire 
local tradition of Wayland Smith, which Sir Walter Scott in- 
troduces in his novel of Keniltvorthy is derived from the Scandi- 
navian legend of Veland. Halliwell gives the Scandinavian 
legend in full in his preface. See Hazlitt's Hajut^book^ 6ia;

Bibliography of Shakespeare, pp. 35, 36. The authorship is 
not asoertainecC but Halliwell s theory is that these two plays 
(of 1594 and 1595) were founded on an older drama, and Robert 
Greene probably had a share in the work, which Shakespeare 
re-touched as early as 159a. Steevens had already reprinted these 
two plap in his Twenty piays^ 1766, but not upon the " rigid 
system pursued bv the present editor. They have since 
bieen repnnted^ in Knight's edition of Shakespeare, in Halii- 
well's folio edition, xi. pp. 81 and 122, in Delinks edition^ and in 
the Cambridge edition, vol. v. — the latter of the two m Haz-

Shakespeare, p. 35. In 1623, the amended play as Shakespeare s 
Henry VI. nrst appeared in three parts, the second part of 
which is founded on the " First part ot the contention," and the 
third part on the "True tragedie." See Introduction- Later

This MS. was purchased by Halliwell of Thomas Rodd, the 
bookseller, as a transcript of the Merry wives of iVindser^ from 
one of the folio editions of Shakespeare ; but an examination 
showed it to be *' a perfectly independent text, — no doubt a copy 
of one of the long-lost playhouse versions." Collier having 

Eublicly called it a mere transcript from the folio, Halliwell in

The "Jests" is a reprint of the edition of 161 1, which, 
although It is not the first, is the earliest now known to exist; 
the original is a 4<>, in black lettsr, with a woodcut portrait of 
Tarlton, with his drum and tabor; the present edition has a 
reproduction of the title and portrait ; the author is unknown. 
The reprint has some omissions on account of the grossness of 
two articles in the original edition. In the introduction is ii>- 
serted "Tarlton's Jigge of a horse loade of Fooles." The 
appendix contains the ballad entitled, ** A very lamenuble and 
wofull discours of the fierce fluds whiche lately flowed in Bed- 
fordshire, in Lincolnshire, and in manv other places, with the 
great losses of sheep and other cattel, the 5. of October, 1570." 
this ballad, according to H.-ilUwelI, " affords the earliest notice 
of Tarlton yet discovered ; " his name is affixed, and according 
wo Colliei merely for the purpose of increasing its sale. The 
author of the ''News out of-purgatory" is also unknown, and 
Tarlton's name was connected witn it (savs Halliwell in th* in- 
troductior.) " as an additional attraction for the purcliaser." In 
1^90, an answer to it appeared under the title, '* The Lobler of

A MS. copy of The mtrry wives of IVituUor^ made during 
the time of the Commonwealth, had been supposed to be the 
earliest manuscript of a Shakespearian play known till the dis- 
covery of the one, followed in this book, which was made by the 
Rev. Lambert B. Larking sunong some old papers in the Muni- 
ment-room of the seat of Sir Ekiward Derin^r, Bart., of Surren- 
den, Oct. 23, 1844. The MS. has corrections in the hand of 
Sir Edward Dering, who died in 1644, and was consequently 
made e.irlier than that date. It shows the two parts of the 
printed play '* condensed into one, and as we may presume for 
the purpose of representation," nearly the whole of the first 
part and a small portion of the second being given- Craik says 
that this MS. clearly follows the printed edition of 161 3 of pt 
L, of which the only copv, so far as known, in America is in 
the Lenox library, which had previously beloneed to Sieevens, 
Dent, and Dyce. It was reprinted, however, oy Steevens in 
his Twenty plays^ 1766, and has been fac-«imiled in the series of 
the Shakespeare quartos made by Ashbee under Halliwell's 
direction, enumerated under 1862-187 1.

the poem where the writer changes abruptly from tne third to

With a reproduction of the original title- A reprint of the 
only known copy, which is in the Garrick collection of plays, 
in the British museum, and is imperfect. It is one of the 
earliest moral plays in the English language and an attempt 
by the author to make the suge a vehicle of sdeniific 
instruction ; the only piece of this kind extant. It contains, 
pp. 28, 31, an allusion to the discovery of America in the follow- 
ing lines : — 

" Within this xx. yere 
Westwarde be founde new landes. 
That we never harde tell of before this 
By wrytynge nor other raeanys. 

" This eest parte is callvd Ynde ; 
B.ut this newe landes tounde lately 
Ben callyd America, because only 
Americus dyd furst them fynde.'' 


The earliest known application of the name America to the 
New World is in Waldsee-Miiller^s CottmograpkUe introdmctio, 
15074 the earliest manuscript map having it is the sketch \y 
Leonardo da Vinci in the queen's collection at Windsor, which is 
given in fac-umile in the A rckaolsg^iaf vol. 40 ; and the earliest 
engraved map showing the name ap^ieared in Camel's edition of 
SoTinus^s Polyhist0rt 1530. 

From theM allaatons, Dr. Dibdin and others have fixed the 
date of the original publication about 151O) but Collieri Halli- 
weil, and others consider about 1517 m more probable. Some

a note, **The difficulty of obtaining [the early ouartos] even 
with the exteostve searches instituted by me during nearly 
dghteen years" prove their " undeniable rarity. Among many 
otner localiiies that have been tried| recollecting the occupation 
of Flushing by the English in the time of Shakespeare, — early 
•ditions might have been carried thither, espedaily as English 
plays were performed there, — 1 was at tae expepse of sending 
•n intelligent agent through Zealand, unfortunately without any 
weful results. In fact, bearing in mind the expenses of searches 
of this kind and the necessity of bu]ring duplicates for the sake 
of securing others, I may safely say no Shakespeare quarto ever 
came into my hands at a reasooable rate." Cf. Wtnsor's

Halliweil caused ten photographic fac-similes of this quarto to 
be made (ShakespeariaHO^ 1862, na 777)1 before he disposed of 
the original to the British ifhiseum. The original \»fsu% this 
note by Halliweil: "'l*his beautiful copy of the Famous Vic- 
tories of Henry the Fifth, though corresponding in text with 
the known editions of 161 7, and one without date printed about 
the same time, is in itself, as fiir as I know, umqne. The other 
copies of 161 7 are stated to be * Imprinted by Barnard Alsop^ 
dwelling in Garter Place in Barbican. 161 7.' Even that edition 
is very rare. No copy has, I think, been sold since Heber's,

*' Printed only foir presentation.'* 
' Halliwell thinks that Knight is the " Single critic who speaks 
ef [Cuiell] with due respect." He dedicates his great folio edi- 
tion of Shakespeare to the merobry of Capell. Of the Capell 
oollection now in Trinitjr college, Cambridge, he says that, ''in 
a Uterary point of view, it is one of the most important Shake- 
Kierian collections in the world, only in fact to be equalled by the 
^ke.of Devonshire's. Capell's is probably superiori'*-on the 
whole, in the important matter of the genuineness of copies." 
To the eye of a oibliomaniac the Shakespeare quartos m the 
Capell oollection aprpear ungainly in their cropped condition, 
and because of the irregular manner in which tney are grouped 
and bound, several in a volume. 

Capell drew up a list of his rarities for Gsrrick, and from this 
MS., after. CapeU*s death, Steevens printed a small edition of 
thirtv copies, one' of which is in the Boston public Kbnry. It

In a private note, Mr. Halliwell-I^illipps cives some account 
of his experience as a collector of biUiograpnical rarities, from 
which, with his consent, a few paragraphs here follow : — 

"About the year 1836, when I first began hunting for old 
books, at the various stalls in our famous LoodoB city, black-let- 
ter ones and rare prints were * plenty as blackberries, and I have 
oiten found sudi things in unlikely places and amidst a mass of 
commonplace rubbish, exposed for sale in boxes labelled, TlAriv 
Aoaks a$td pampkletty 6d. or is. tack, outside an old bookseller's 
window, where another notice informed the nasser-by that Lihrtt' 
rus were pttrckased cr hooks bought ; ana thus plainly showed 
how such now indeed rarities came into the possession of an igno- 
rant bibliopole I It was not, however, till about 1840, that 1 turned 
my attention to the more special woric of oolleciing Shakeroeare 
quartos, in which I may say I have been very successful. It 
was at one of George Chalmers's sales I first bought one or two. 
atid after that I hunted for them in all parts of the country ana 
met with considerable success, ^ often buving duplicates and 
even triplicates of the same edition and play. At one time I 
ixwsesaed no less than three copies of the very rare quarto edi- 
tion of Romeo and JulieU 1609, and sometimes even had four 
conies of more than one of the other auartos. Not so very long 
before this period, old Jolley, the wdl-known collector, picked 
up a Caxton at Reading^ Berkshire ; and a yenus and Adonis 
oE 1594, at Manchester, m a volume' of old tracts, for the ignoble 
sum of one shilling and three pence. Jolley was a wealthy 
orange merchant of Farrington street, London, and entertained 
me often with manv stories of similar fortunate Jltids of rare 
books, which served to whet my a|)petite only the more But I 
was soon stopped in my book-hunting career, by the appearance 
all at once on the scene of a number of buyers with much longer 
purses than my own, and thus I was driven from a market, I had 
derived so. much pleasure from, with very great regret. Some- 
time afterwards circumstances rendered it desirable that I should 
part with a large number of my book treasures by auction and 
to the British museum : but even then I retained enough to be 
instrumental in foundins the first Shakespearian library m Scot- 
land, by presenting to the university of Edinburgh, among other 
rarities, nearly fifty copies of original quartos of Shakespeare's 
plays, printed before the Restoration, and to keep sufficient my- 
self of the rarest and most valuable examples, which I am proud 
to feel makes my present collection of such books the largest in 
this county of Sussex. In fact more eariy quarto Shakespeares 
have been \n my own possession^ than it is now possible can ever 
fail to the lot of any other individual."

The general preface to the series says, " Every single letter 
has been lifaced from the originals by hand, and for all really 
practical uses^ this series is as valuable as a collection of the 
early quartos themselves. But to assert that in delicate and 
minute points, references to the originals are rendered unneces- 
sary, would be manifestly an exaggeration. Ther^ is no known 
process which could preclude the advisability of an occasional 
recourse, on special questions, to the early editions." What 
was true in 1871, it is feared remains so still, notwithstanding 
the advances in the utilizafimi of sun-work in the processes <3

supervision of the work, ** I being the director, not the worker "

on, and each copy is marked: **Far private circalation only. 

Only fif^ copies printed, nineteen of which were sabseqnenthr 
destroyed, thus reducing the number preserved to thirty-ooe- 
The number of each copy then follows, and then the signatures 
of Ashbee, Tuckett (the binder^ and Halliwell. The latter 
says in a private letter, "Owing to the late fire at the Pan- 
technicon," Feb. 13, 1874, when all the sets unsubscribed for 
were destroyed, " and the way in which seu have been broken 
up. 1 do not fancy that there are above fifteen sets in exisunce." 
It is not known that there is a complete set in Boston or hs 
vicinity. The set which belonged to Mr. W. G. Med^icott of 
Longmeadow, Mass., was taken to England. CI Medlieott

speare society's library in Phikuielphia and in the Boston pub-

Vol. 3CX3C. Richard the Third. 1605. BPL. 

- Halliwell has written in the BPk« copy, " The incorrect ar- 
rangement of a few of the pages is followed from the extremely 
rare original in the British museum, from which it was not 
thought right to deviate in the slijghtest degree.*' Halliwell 
wrote in the museum oopy the following notes: '* Cost me £^.^* 
** Richard Uu Third,, 1605, a perfect genuine copy of this most 
rare edition, which is not even noticed in any bibliographical 
list, was unknown to all the other commentators, and first men- 
tioned in Collier's recent edition. The only other known copy is 
in the Bodleian," which bought it of Halliwell in 1840 for ^ai. 
The Tite catalogue, 1874, nowever, disclosed another copy, 
which was sold for ^xh 155- Halliwell gives a fao-simile of 
title in his folio ed. of Shakttptar*^ xi. 479. 

VoL XXXT. Lear. First, or *' Fide Bull " edi- 
tion, 41 leaves, 1608. 

Halliwell gives a fac-simile of the title in his fdio ed- of Shake- 
tpeartt xiv. 439, and p. ^6; he gives fac-similes of two corre- 
sponding pages from different copies to show hoW>they vary, 
though worked from the same forms. On thia point see Halii- 
well's Shak$sp«are study^books^ p. 36 : Winsors Shaketptare 
bibliog,^ p. 42. Both of the copies in the British museum have 
paMed through Halliwell's hands, and have notes fay him in 
them. In one, which the Museum acquired in Nov. i8«8, there 
is pasted to a fly-leaf a printed cutting which has the fol.owing 
note : — 

" FiKST EDITION, a perfect and genuine copy. Only three 
perfect copies of this first edition luive, to my Knowledge, been 
soid by auction during the last thirty years, — two in Ueber's 
collection and the present one- Both ot Heber's copies.are now 
in America, one in the collection of Mr. Lenox, the other im^ 
that 0/ Mr. Barton, It is almost the only first edition not in 
the Daniel collection'* (by Mr. Halliwell). 

Mr. Halliwell, in the above note, is in error. The copies of 
this *' Fide Bull" edition in this country, are one in the Lenox . 
library, and the other, now or latelv in the Griswoid collection, 
it is not in the Barton collection ot the Boston public library. 

Mr. Halliwell in his Shaktspeare study boohs^ p. a6, says he 
has ''a large fragment of the original with singularly curious 
variations ;" and he adds, '* I believe I was the first to point out 
that there were only two editions of King Lear issued in^ the 
year 1608, but for many years I was at a loss to account for the 
variations between different copies of the Pide Bull edition. 
This difficulty has unquestionably been eolved by Mr. Ald^s 

Lear. Second edition. 44 leares. 

Wright, by supposing that the correctiona were made befaie tlM 
aheets were all worked off, and that the corrected and uncor- 
rected sheets were bound up indiscriminatelv." 

The other museum copy is thus inscribed by Hallinvell : *' Pur- 
chased of Garrett of Newcastle for £iOj J. 0. H." Also, on a 
alip ^ted in, *' This copy of the first edition of Lear, wanting 
the title, should be preserved with my perfect copy, on aocooat 
of its containing an extraordinary number of curious textual 
variations, although both copies are evidently printed from the 
same forms. Compare, for example, the reverse of G, a, tha 
reverse of H, 3, the first page of H, 4, and various other plat 



Halliwell gives a fi^-aimile (rf the title in his folio ed. of Shakm 
s^eargf xiv. 429, and says *' all copies exactly correspond." There 
are oripnals in the Boston public, Lenox, and other American 
collections, according to Winsor*s Shahetpeant Hbiimg^t p^ 43.

and this last title is^^ven in fac-simile in the introductory volume 
of this series ; and in Winsor's Shakespeare bibliog.^ p 58, and

VoL XZXIV. Henry the Fourth. Part. i. 160S. 

This follows a copy, now in the Britiah museum, in which ia 
this note by Halliwell': ''This is one of onh twofter/ect copiea 
known. It is not in the Capell or in any other collection except 
the Bodleian, which has the single copy that passed through the 
various sales to Heber's time. So extremely rare is it that 1

Garrick's and the kinsfs copies are in the British muaeum; 
and Malone's in the BocUeian. Winaor^s Shakespeare bibli^^ 
p. 33, names copies in the Boston public^ the Lenox, and other 
American collections. £. G. Asay, of Chicago, bought the copy 
in the Ckaufurd sale, London, 1876, for £1^ 15X. Mr Fumeaa 
has a copv annotated by CapelL Steevena reprinted it ia his 
Twenty ptays^ iii. 

VoL 70SXTL Romeo and Juliet. 1609. 

The Bodleian copy is imperfect The British muaetim copy 
has notes in it, by HalliwelL as follows: ** For this naost rare 
edition 'most rare in a perfect state) I gave Mr. Daniel in ex- 
change The History of Tom Thumb, i6si, bought by me at 
Utterson's sale for £t. a. 6, and a volume of curiuua Penny

VoL XyXVn. TroUus and Cressida. 1609. 


A bc^imile of title and first page of the preface is given in 
Halliwell's folio ed. of Shakespeare^ xii. 218. This title reada 
. '* Famous Historic ; " but some copies omit the word ** fiunous" 
in the title, and are without the preface. Facsimiles of thta 
shorter title are in the introduct(»ry volume of this series, and 
in Winsor's Shakespeare bi6liMr.t p. 71 and pi. 57. 'llie British 
museum has a copy of the ** Famous " title which had beeo 
Halliwell's, with a note by him in it, as follows: ** This beauti> 
fully clean perfect copy of the first edition of Troilus and Cres- 
sida with the preface has never been in anv sale, and is perfectly 
genuine throughout, having been cut out Dy mvself trom a vof* 
ume of tracts collected and bound at the period. This first edi- 
tion is very rare in any state^ but is most particalariy so when 
quite complete with the prose preface^ which is omitted in all 
•copies of the second edition of the same year, and is only foand 
in some copies of the first. Not more than three oomplele 
copies aw known to exist. The present copy has the reading 
thrice-impMredf considered *by Mr. Collier to be peculiar to the 
duke of Devonshire's." The British museum haa also the other 
variety. Steevens reprinted .it in his Twenty piays^ iii. The 
preface, above named, indicates that these quartos were sold for 
a " testeme," or six pence.

VoL ZIi. Titus Andronicus. 161 1. 

The kioifs copy in the British museum is perfect, but thje 
Gorrick copy lacks the genuine title, as does the Barton copy in 
the Boston pubUc library, a fac-simile by Harris being supplied. 
It was reprinted by Steevens in his Twenty plays<, iiL 

VoLZU. Pericles. 161 1. 

Halliwell gives a fao-^mile of the title in his folio ed. of SJkake- 
tj^are, xvi. 7a. He secured the only copy known, probably 
lacking two leaves^ which had been lost sight of since 1804, but 
is«now in the British museum. Halliwelrs note in this copy is 
as follows: ** Although the present volume wants two leaves in 
sheet D (unless, indeed, the omission is to be ascribed to the 
printer, the catchwords being right), it is of great literanr curios- 
ity and importance, being not onlv unique, out unused by and 
mknown to all the editors of Shakespeare. Mr. Collier is the 
only one who even names it, at first with doubt as to its exist- 
caoe* and afterwards only on mv information. I1ie present is 
no dkMibt Edwarde's copy, which sold in 1804 for what was in 
those days the large price of ;f 14, since which time it seems to 
have disappeared until purchased privately by me." 

w^ Vol. ZZalX Hamlet. 1611. 

Heber's copv is now in the Boston public librair. The 
Daniel oop^, afterward Tite's, is now the property of Mr. Fur- 
neas, who in his Hamlet, ii. 34, points out vanations in two 
oo^es of this edition- E. G. Asay of Chicago has a copy. The 
&itisli museum copy was ISarrick's. Steevens reprinted it in 
his Twenty play*^ iv. 

VoL yTiTTT Richard the Third. 1612. 

The copy in the British mosrom is in the klng^s libnur. A 
copy once owned by Dycc^ and another formerly belonging to 
Steevens, are in the Lenox library. Mr. Fumeas has a copy. 
Reprinted in Steevens* s Twenty play s^ iii. 

The next edition, i6a2, is not given in this series ; but Halliwell 
has inscribed the following note in a^ copy of it in the British 
museum : " llie only curiosity of this imperfect copy of the i6aa 
edition of Rkhard the Third arises from the circumstance of the 
title-page being perfect, the imprint being almost invariably cut 
off. Indeed, so rare is it to meet with a copv with the date of 
1633, Mr. Collier, in his ed. of Shakespeare,' declares that *the 
existence of a copy of that date is more than doubtful.' There 
are, I beKeye, two copies in the British museum, the imprints of 
both of which are imperfect." 

VoL JOJ^V. Henry the Fourth. 1613. 

Steevens's oop^ with his MS. notes is in the Lenox library, 
and he reprinted it in Ins Twenty ^ayt, ii. Another copy, once 
owned by Steeven^ is in the British museum, where is also an- 
other copy with this note by Halliwell: "This copy wanting 
tiie last led should be preserved' with my t»ther copy, whi<:h is 
perfect, on account of the curious variations in sheet H which, 
m this one, was evidently corrected after the other was struck 
off Thus at sig. H. x, Ime j, from bottom, the arrangement of 
the Ihie, * Were it good,' is corrected, and at sig. U. 4, verso,

Bodenham was the compiler of the ori{;inal cofiection from 
which these songs were extraaed, one of which, " The passionate 
aheepheards song'* signed " W. Shakespeare" is given in fac- 
simiie. The editor says that but three copies of the 1600 edition 
atfe known, one in the Bodleian, a second sold at auction in i8i$6, 
and one the property of W. C. Hazlitt. The present selection 
gives a list of the names of the authors of the pieces in the 
original collection, following a MS. in the British museum, MS. 
H^ 380. f n this, " On a day alack the day," being the song 
above referred to, is^ assigned to Shakespeare ; but "My flocks 
feed not " is left without name, though Taggard had assigned 
it — incorrectly Halliwell thinks— to Shakespeare in 1599. The 
volume closes with an index to authors' names, and to first lines, 
referring for pages to Bryd^es' reprint of the original, 1812, 
which Kiilowed the 1614 edition.

Halliwell says in his introduction : " A few of the dramas in 
the first folio were possibly edited from Shakespeare's original 
manuscripts. It is certain in several instances Heminpe and 
Condell used printed copies of the old quarto editions." He 
enumerates the plays in order, and indicates the relative value 
of the authorities for the text. 

The present average value of a perfect copy of the first folio is 


"*' It is not of course pretended that any fac-simile of any old 
book will in all cases of minute research entirely supersede 1 he 
necessity of a reference to copies of the ancient impressions.** 

This IS the second reproduction of the first foiio by some pho- 
tographic proces^s. The first ^as made by Preston, by photo- 
lithography, in i866, was superintended by Howard Staunton, 
and published in sixteen pans by Day and Son, London. It was 
of the size of the original, and was delivered bound to subscribers 
for £%^. It has smce fallen somewhat in price. It has been 
complained that in minute particulars it is not always faithful, 
as in omitting the bar of an e, thus making it a r, etc. It is said 
that the present reduced fac-simile is from this earlier one, and 
not from an original. 

The earliest type fac-simile was made in 1807, with " Printed 
by E. and J. Wright, St. John's Square," on the reverse o£ 
title, and *♦ Shakespeare, i8o«),'- as a water mark in the paper. 
It was said to be edited by Francis Douce. Upcott pointed out 
368 errors in it, of which about forty arc important. Notes and

The next printed reproduction was begun in 1861 by Lionel 
Booth, copying the general style of the original, but using a 
small type, and changing the page to a quarter shape. It was 
completed, having been issued in three parts, — comedies, his- 
tories, traeedies, late in 1864* I'he Cambridge editors call it 
probably the most correct reprint ever made. Charles Wright 
was the editor of it. Some copies have Pericles, copied from 
the 1664 follow at the end.

By Samuel H. Scudder. 

The addition to the resources of the University 
of the entomological library formed by Dr. Hagen 
during the past fifty years, has prompted an exami- 
nation of the literature of this department in the 
principal scientific libraries throughout the country, 
partly by personal study, partly by correspondence ; 
and, as the result of the exammation may prove in- 
teresting to others, it is herewith publishecl. 

The addition of Dr. Hagen*s library to the Mu- 
seum of Comparative Zoology makes its entomo- 
logical department by far the most valuable in the 
country. The card catalogue has 4,279 entries, of 
which 3,457 represent Dr. Hagen's books, 822 the 
others, which are almost entirely the gift to the Mu- 
seum of Professors L. aifti A. Agassiz. The entire 
library is judged by Dr. Hagen to contain about 
2,000 volumes and 3,000 pamphlets. 

About one third of the total space which the li- 
brary occupies is filled by journals and society pub- 
lications, among which may be especially noted 
complete sets of the older magazines, rarely seen in 
this country. The library is rich in works and pa- 
pers on Neuroptera and'Pseudoneuroptera, groups 
of insects which have been Dr. Hagen's special 
study. It contains also a very valuable series of 
anatomical, physiological, and biological papers; the 
literature of fossil insects is well represented ; and a 
neglected field — the bit liography of entomology — 
is unusually perfect from the material collected by 
Dr. Hagen for his catalogue of 1863. It contains, 
too, nearly all the works and even minor papers of 
certain entomologists, such as Linne, Fabricius, La- 
treille, Thunberg, Fallen, Sahlberg, Panzer, Germar, 
and many others still living. Since Dr. Hagen en- 
tered the Museum, he has formed a special library 
for l\'orth American publications, separately 
kept and already tolerably complete. 

Many rare works, and a large number of exceed- 
ingly scarce tracts, obtained as opportunity offered 
during the past fifty years, make the library one of 
exceptional value. Many of these are the only copies 
Dr. Hagen has ever seen, and his familiarity with 
the bibhography of entdmology is unrivalled. Fifty 
years ago, he says, when he purchased his first 
books, the standards of the day, the cost of ento- 
mological works was scarcely one fourth the price 
now demanded for the same volumes, so that with 
less than $10,000, it would then have been possible 
to form a tolerably complete library. There were 
then very few students and no competition, and be- 
ing before the time of cheap and rapid transport, it 
was possible to buy French books in Germany, and 
German or English books in France, at very low 
rates ; with the, easier facilities of the present day, 
the formation of a library is a simpler, but from the 
greater demand- and exhausted supply a far more 

expensive, matter. A memorandum of some of the 
rarer works in the library is appended. 

The College Library is tolerably well represented 
in entomology for a general library, there being 
about 450 volumes and 50 or more catalogued pam- 
phlets. These were in large measure selected while 
Dr. Harris was connected with the library, and 
mostly represent standard works. There are also in 
the Horary many costly voyages in which entomology 
is represented, but which are not included in this 

Dr. Harris's private library, rarely duplicating 
works in the College Library, has come into the pos- 
session of the Boston Society of Natural History, 
and forms about one third of its present entomologi- 
cal department, wh*ich consists of about 900 volumes 
and nearly 550 pamphlets. The collection is a mis- 
cellaneous one ; but contains some rare and valuable 
works cited in the appendix, and besides these may 
be mentioned an entire series of the tracts of l*eck. 
Say, and Harris in their original forms. Periodical 
literature is also fairly represented. But the choicest 
part of the collection consists of its manuscript mate- 
rial, in which the library is exceptionally rich for 
North American entomology. It contains three sets 
of colored illustrations of Georgian insects and their 
transformations by Abbot (one, a small volume, and 
probably a copy) coming from the Harris library ; 
another, a thick folio volume, and containing 174 
sheets, from Dr. Asa Gray, originally from London ; 
and a third, also in folio, consisting of 193 sheets 
painted by Abbot for Oemler of Georgia. Next, two 
small volumes, containing 239 sheets, the original 
drawings by Hentz for the illustration of his papers 
on the Spiders of the United States, which, though 
published by the Society in black, were drawn in 
color. Besides these, there are all the manuscripts 
left by Dt. Harris, collected into twenty-four vol- 
umes, mostly folios, a full account of which may be 
found in the Society's Proceedings (vol. xiii., pp. 
167, 168). 

The next largest public collection of entomologi- 
cal books in this vicinity is that of the Public Li- 
brary of Boston, which contains about 650 volumes 
and 75 pamphlets. Periodical literature is very 
poorly represented ; the greater part of the books be- 
ing standard works, well selected and containing 
many rare and costly volumes, some not elsewhere 
found in this vicinity. 

The Boston Athenaeum has a small and miscella- 
neous collection of a little more than 1 50 volumes 
and pamphlets, with one or two rare works ; and the 
Cambridge Entomological Club one of nearly 200 
volumes and about 500 pamphlets. 

It may be well to include in the account of the 
entomological collections of this vicinity, the private 
of libraries Mr. Burgess and myself. Mr. Burgess's 
library, recently formed, contains about 150 volumes 


and 300 pamphlets. The' anatomv of insects,- and 
systematic works on Diptera, are fairly represented, 
nearly one half of the Horary being devoted to these 

The entomological portion of my own library con- 
sists of 765 volumes and very nearly 2,000 pamphlets. 
There are only a few serials, the bulk of the library 
being made up of the less costly general works on 
each order, and of special collections of papers on 
Orthoptera, Butterflies, Fossil insects, and the anato- 
my, morphology, and embryology of insects. In 
Orthoptera ana fossil insects, it contains nearly 
every thing now procurable, and some very scarce 
works. In the former, it also contains a separate 
collection of some thousand illustrations, separately 
mounted, and systematically arranged, while in 
anatomy, etc., it is second, m this country, only to 
the library of the Zoological Museum. Among 
others will be found complete, or very nearly com- 
plete, series of the papers of Herold, Newport, Du- 
four, Grabcr, Plateau, Brauer, Weismann, Laboul- 
b^ne, Thunberg, Selys, Saussure, Stal, Brunner, 
Wood-Mason, Serville, Murray, A. and H. Dohrn, 
Girard, Hentz, Harris, Packard, Heer, Oustalet, 
Brodie, Hcyden, Weyenbergh, and Goldenberg; and 
the Phylloxera papers of the French Academy. 

The libraries of Salem are not rich enough in 
entomological works to require mention. In Provi- 
dence, Dr. A. S. Packard has a collection of 470 vol- 
umes and 550 pamphlets on insects. It is fuller in 
systematic works on I^epidoptera, Hymenoptera, and 
Coleoptera than on other orders, but its special value 
lies in its collection of embryological and morpho- 
logical papers, comprising very full series of the 
works of the writers on these topics mentioned in 
the last paragraph, as well as of Clapar^de, Metsch- 
nikoff, Melnikow, Ganin, Kowalewsky, etc. 1 

The library of Yale College, New Haven, con- 
tains about 200 entomological woAcs. 

In New York, the Astor Library has about 500 
volumes, of which one fourth consists of serials ; it 
contains some costly, but few, if any, very rare works. 
The New York Academy of Scfence has a small 
library in this department, but I have been unable to 
obtain any figures 

The Society of Natural Science at Buffalo pos- 
sesses somewhat over 500 volumes and nearly as 
many pamphlets on entomology. It is particularly 
well supplied with works and papers, both old and 
recent, on Nocturnal Lepidoptera, which have 
formed the special study of Mr. Grote, the principal 
officer of the society. 

The entomological library at* Cornell University 
has about i jo volumes and 50 pamphlets. 

In Philadelphia, we find another entomological 
centre. The largest library is perhaps that of the 
American Entomological Society ; it is said to con- 
sist of 1,728 volumes and 336 pamphlets; but these 
figures include a considerable number of periodical 
and other works on general natural history, pre- 
served for the sake of the entomological matter they 
contain, and may not fairly be compared with the 
others. Serial entomological publications (at least 
existing ones) are very completely represented, and 
there are many costly works. 

This library is now in the hall of the Academy of 
Natural Sciences, which itself possesses 956 volumes 
on strictly entomological subjects, and 554 pam- 
phlets ; all the departments are about equally well 
represented, but many works are necessarily dupli- 
cated in the collection last mentioned, and both owe 
much of their value to the generosity of the late Dr. 
T. B. Wilson. The library' contairs'a number of let- 
ters written by Say to Melsheimer, from 1813 to 1825. 

Dr. J. L. LeConte, of Philadelphia, estimates his 
private library to consist of about 700 volumes and 
000 pamphlets, and it is undoubtedly the most com- 
plete library for Coleoptera in the country, 'very few 
papers on American beetles being wanted. It is full 
m this otder only, but contains nearly every thing in 
the shape of monographs, besides many formal works 
and series of transactions. There are many rare old 
works, which are of no special use for reference, but 
valuable as bibliographical curiosities, being scarcely 
ever met with on sale. It also contains the working 
copy of the elder Melsheimer*s catalogue of U. S. 
Coleoptera, full of marginal notes, and other inter* 
esting relics; and also an immense collection of 
original drawings, — several thousand in number, of 
insects of all orders found in the Atlantic States, 
made principally by Major John LeConte (Dr. 
LeConte*s father) and partly by Abbot, whom he 
employed as a collector and draughtsman. 

In Baltimore, the library of the Peabody Institute 
has over 800 volumes and about 200 separate pam- 
phlets on entomology. It contains complete series 
of many entomological journals, and otherwise con- 
sists mainly of standard works, well selected, as 
would be expected with Messrs. Morris and Uhler*s 
supervision. There are few rare books in it, but the 
more costly and expensive works are well repre- 
sented. Mr. P. R. Uhler's private library in the 
same city consists of over 300 volumes and about 
500 pamphlets on insects, selected with special refer- 
ence to Mr. Uhler*s specialty, the Hemiptera, but 
not inconsiderable in other directions, and particu- 
larly in Coleoptera and ^europtera ; it is mostly 
confined to systematic works. 

I have been unable to obtain any figures concern- 
ing the Congressional Library in Washington, which 
must be of considerable value, particularly as it in- 
cludes that of the Smithsonian Institution. Mr. Ri 
ley has, however, kindly supplied some notes about it. 
Ill serial publications it is, of course, rich ; and in 
miscellaneous works it has a complete collection of 
entomological books published in America. In for- 
eign works, however (excepting in serials), it is com- 
paratively poor. 

The liorary of the entomological division of the 
department of Agriculture contains about 300 vol- 
umes, mostly selected on account of their absence 
from the Congressional Library, and consisting of 
standard works. It contains the only complete col- 
ored copy of Mr. Glover's plates of American insects ; 
and the general library of agricultural works includes 
many works embracing papers on applied entomolo- 
gy. Special mention may be made of a complete set 
of the Gardiner's Chronicle of London, in wnich are 
many articles by Westwood. 

Tne private library of Mr. C V. Riley, of Wash- 
ington, contains about 700 volumes of purely ento- 
mological books and about 3,000 pamphlets, nearly 
all of which are directly entomological. It is espe- 
cially rich in biological papers and such as illustrate 
the economic bearings of the science. Several of 
the late Mr. Walsh's books are found here with his 
marginal notes. Mr. Riley has paid particular atten- 
tion to the fugitive literature of entomology, and 
has 22 scrap-books filled with nearly every thing that 
has appeared on insects during the last twelve years 
in agricultural and other papers, — articles mostly of 
an economic character, and generally overlooked in 

This review clearly shows the great advantages to 
an entomologist of a residence in this vicinity, where 
the bibliographical aids to study equal, if they do 
not surpass, those of the rest of the country com-

This copy is a very great rarity, printed on thin, ra'e .pinl« 
paper, with a water-mark of Mercury^s staff and snakes, differ* 
ing from the ordinary copies. It is the only copy known to 
Dr. Hagen certainly colored at the time of original issue ; a 
colored copy in Von Heyden's library was apparently painted at 
a later date. A third copy is quoted by Brunet, but has not 
been seen by Dr. Hacren (See Hagen'* Bibl., I. 371). This is 
the first illustrated colored work on entomology ever printed. 
Dr. Hagen's copy is. however, defective in lacking eighteen of the 
fifty-two plate^. i'he originals of Hoefnagel's plates, painted on 

f)archment. still exin in the museum at Oxford, — fe»rmerly in the

a single copy was quoted tor sale ; since then, according to 
Dr. Hagen, two have appeared on antiquarian catalogueSf but 
one of them falsified by the introduction of some plates from the 
preceding work, the insects figured in the two being the same.

Cambridge, Gore Hall, Jan. 24, 1881. 
Dear Sir,— 

It is proposed to print a list of the publications of the officers of instruction and government 
in the University (including librarians, curators, demonstrators, and assistants, together with instructors 
annually appointed), for the Academic years 1870-71 to 1879-80, both inclusive; that is, from Sept. 29, 1870, 
to Sept. 30, 1880. 

I am directed by the President to request your co-operation in making this list accurate and complete 
by furnishing me with the titles of the publications made by you during the term of your service, so far as it 
falls within the period named, and the titles of such other of your publications, if any, as may be said to have 
grown out of your work in the University, though published after your connection with it ceased. 

The classes of works intended are these : — 

1. Independent works as author or editor. 

2. Joint works as author or editor. 

3. Contributions, bearing the author's name, to serial, periodical, or occasional publications, includ- 

ing transactions of learned societies. 

4. Lectures delivered within or without the University, which have been subsequently printed. 

As it is intended to give a separate list of the contents of the Annals of the Observatory, the Memoirs 

and Bulletin of the Museum of Comparative Zoology, the Reports of the Peabody Museum, the Library 

Bulletin, and the Bulletin of the Bussey Institution, contributions to these publications of the University need 

not be enumerated. 

Very truly yours, 

JUSTIN WINSOR, Librarian of the Umversity. 


%* These titles are those of publications issued by the different departments of the University, during the period 1870- 
1880, with the addition of sudi volumes of the publications of the Astronomical Observatory and Museum of Com- 
parative 2^1ogy as were printed before 187a Thb departtve from the strict limits of the period has been made 
because the volumes dated before 1870 are few in number, and there is manifest convenience in making such a list 
complete. Contributions by officers of the University in these official publications are not included in the lists given 
on later pages under their respective names.
