On the last page, and in a different hand, is a scarcely legible memorandum of the receipt of a sum of £8‘in a plase callid Schypmë hall,' by some former owner of the book, and apparently made in the reign of Edward IV.

Dd. I. 24. A folio, on paper, containing 92 leaves : written about the end of the xviith century.

• THE APOCALYPS OR REUELATION of St John, in Greek and English, clausularily drawne, so as it may be easily read out of Greeke into English, or out of English into Greeke, by such as take delight in the text. Also a short commentary or explanation of the most difficult places and visions therein contained. Togeather with Greeke Marginal Notes, shewing the greatest part of the phrases and expressions which the Holy Ghost useth therein, are taken out of the Greeke translation called the Septuagint, which serves as good direction to know what is to be meant thereby. As also the Iconologie or Figures of all the said visions, drawne and designed according to the visions therein expressed, and are very usefull for the easy remembring of them, and better imprinting the idea of them in the mind and memory of the studious. Claused by William Spenser, gent.' Begins (“by waye of preface touching revelations in Scripture')

Revelations of mysteries are not for infidels but for believers, &c.
Ends

“And no more were now to be expected.' The Greek and English text, which occupies the page opposite to each page of commentary, has been formed by cutting out the several clauses from printed editions, and pasting them side by side in parallel columns. The drawings, which consist of rough unfinished sketches, are 54 in number.

For another work by the same author and in the same handwriting see Dd. viii. 4. There was a William Spencer, Fellow of Trin. Coll. Camb., editor of Origen, contra Celsum, 4to, 1658, who may perhaps have been the compiler of this MS.

Appears to have been the private register of some herald of the time of King James I.
