Nicolson, is “a most admirable translation, with learned notes.' 1117 THUCYDIDES.-NICOLLS (THOMAS) The HISTORY WRITTONE BY THuciDIDES THB ATHENYAN OF THE WARRE WHICHE WAS BETWENE THE PELOPENESIANS AND THE ATHENYANS, translated out of French into the English language by Thomas Nicolls, Citizeine and Goldesmyth of London.

1118 TUNSTALL (Bishop C.) DE ARTE SUPPUTANDI LIBRI QUATTUOR CUTHEBERTI TONSTALLI. (Last leaf) Impres., Londini in Ædibus, RICHARDI PYNSONI, Anno Verbi Incarnati, M.D.XXII. (1622). Pridie Idus Octobris, Cum Privilegio a Rege Indulto. Quarto, Roman Letter, 29 lines to a page, engraved border round title after Holbein, ILLUMINATED IN GOLD AND COLOURS, AND THE MARGIN OF THE FIRST PAGE HANDSOMELY DECORATED WITH A DRAWING IN BISTRE IN THE ITALIAN RENAISSANCE STYLE, introducing groups of figures, knights, etc., THOUGHT TO BE DONE BY HANS HOLBEIN, some marginal notes in a contemporary hand, small 4to, a large and fine copy in old calf gilt, £42 A remarkably_interesting and scarce book; THE FIRST ARITHMETICAL TREATISE

PUBLISHED IN ENGLAND; Dedicated to Sir Thomas MORE. The present one is believed

to have been the author's own copy, on account of the MS. additions and the decorations. In the preliminary epistle to Sir Thomas More, Tunstal gives a curious account of the origin of this

work. It seems that in his dealings with certain goldsmiths, or silversmiths, he suspected that the accounts were fraudulently prepared, and therefore he made a special study of the forgotten science of his boyhood-arithmetic-in order to be able to check the figures. The result of his labours was a book for his own use, which, on being appointed Bishop of London, he thought no

longer necessary to his new station, but probably worthy of being printed for the use of others. 1119 VIRGIL.-GEORGICA VIRGILII CUM COMMENTO FAMILIARI (Colophon), Virgili Maronis super quattuor libros Georgicon una cum commento familiarissimo opus pre. clarum feliciter finit. Impressum Parisii, anno domini MCCCCXCV (1495]. Black letter, of two sizes, capitals rubricated and woodcut on title in red, small 4to, corners of two leaves damaged at end, vellum, £2 188

A very scarce edition, with an early Paris imprint. Apparently unknown to Brunet. 1120 VIRGILIUS MARO (Publius) GEORGICA ET ÆNBIS. MANUSCRIPT, FINELY WRITTEN ON 206 LEAVES OF VELLUM BY AN ITALIAN SCRIBE, Gothic Letter, long lines, 31 to a page. At the beginning of the GEORGICS IS A FINE PAINTING OF A MAN

OXEN, WITH AN ILLUMINATED MARGINAL DECORATION 01

GOLD AND COLOURS ; at the beginning of the ÆNBID IS A SIMILAR FINE PAINTING BUT MORE ELABORATE, INTRODUCING THE BURNING OF TROY, ÆNEAS ON HORSEBACK ; also a painting of A COUPLE OF SHIPS AT SEA OCCUPYING THE WHOLE BOTTOM MARGIN; FINE ILLUMINATED DECORATION, ON OTHER MARGINS, IN GOLD AND COLOURS; EACH BOOK HAS A LARGE AND BEAUTIFULLY ILLUMINATED INITIAL OF FLORAL COMBINATION (3 X 2) and a smaller one with pen ornaments; the Epigrams at the end of the volume have ornamental pen letters (the last 23 lines of the fourth Georgic, and the first 105 lines of the sixth Æneid are wanting]. Circa 1400. Folio, brown morocco extra by LEIGHTON, from the LIBRARY OF WILLIAM MORRIS, with bookplate, £200 A very valuable manuscript. The flyleaves contain extracts from Servius and other Commentators on Virgil, and the margins have numerous MS. notes in a smaller hand. Among other matter are found a few historical notes indicating that the Scribe was preparing a MS. of Livy, and at the foot of the recto of first leaf is a Latin verse of 12 lines entitled, "DESCRIPTIO GRATIORUM PER PORCELLUM," written probably about 1460-70, and perhaps a few years later than another metrical composition at the end, eulogising the Papacies of Martin V. and Pius II. Porcelius was a great admirer of Pius II., of whose reign he wrote a Latin chronicle. The inference to be drawn is that the volume belonged to Porcelius, one of the great Scholars and Latinists of the time, and that these

compositions are in his autograph. 1121 WALES.-Welsh Scenery, from Drawings by Captain Batty of the Grenadier Guards, F.R.S. . 1825. Small folio, THIRTY FINE beautiful engravings .by EDWD.

is a very fine one. Lowndes was unable to cite any copy sold as complete, and Dr. Dibden says, " The only perfect copy which I remember to have seen is that in the collection of J. D. Phelps.” Even Mr. Huth's

copy has the last leaf in facsimile. It is reprinted verbally from Caxton's edition of 1482. Trevisa's text (written in 1387) was a little

amplified by Caxton, who also added the portion of the history which extends from 1357 to 1466.
