The illuminated letters are severe and the colours subdued in appearance, occasioned perhaps by the utter absence of gold in their illumination. The first page is principally taken up with a large Orems," the relative size of letters being-OREMS-the O is a painted initial, the others pen letters in red and blue. The effect is more curious perhaps than pleasing, and these terms apply to the MS. generally. Italian MSS. of this character are unquestionably very rare.

Imprynted at London, by Owen Rogers, dwelling neare unto Great Saint Bartelmewes Gate, at the Sygne of the Spred Egle, 1561. GENUINE, UNDOCTORED COPY, bound in part of a leaf from a vellum choir book, from the LIBRARY OF WILLIAM MORRIS, with his bookplate, £6 108 This curious poem is usually ascribed to Robert Langland or Longland, who flourished in the early

part of the XIVth century; but the authorship may perhaps be regarded as still an open question. It is one of the most remarkable productions of the age (1362-80), and in importance and interest and merit of execution ranks second only to Chaucer for the picture it presents of England in the middle ages. While Chaucer's language is that of the Court and upper classes, Piers Plowman uses the tongue of the common people, and is very valuable on that account. “This work is a very curious and masterly production, and appears to have been composed in or soon after the year 1362. It is a kind of religious allegorical satire, in which Pierce the Floughman, the principal personage, seems to be intended for the pattern of Christian perfection, if not occa sionally for Jesus Christ himself. The mode of versification adopted by this writer is originally Gothic, and it is to be conjectured to have been a favourite poetic style with the common people down to a late period. The author of this poem became popular about the time of the Reformation, from his having lashed the vices of the clergy, both regular and secular, with a just severity, and foretold, as was thought, the destruction of the monasteries by Henry VIII.”Vide Bibliotbeca Anglo-Poetica, in which it is marked at £14 148.

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 do

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 preclarum feliciter finit.

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.
