4to. fine copy, in red morocco, gilt edges, by Derome, from the Beckford library, Hamilton Palace, £10. 10s [Paris, 16787

Original edition, excessively rare, the entire impression (except five or six copies) having been seized at the instigation of Bishop Bossuet, by order of the Chancellor M. Le Tellier, at the printers' before the work was completed, and destroyed.

No copy has appeared at an English anction since Mr. Beckford bought this one for £8. 16s at the Hibbert sale, in 1829. It had previously belonged to Bindley.--The above title is added in MS. and is followed by a copy of the decree of suppression, which declares “ combien il seroit de pernicieuse

[Argentorati, Henricus Eggesteyn] 1474 VERY RARE, being also remarkable as the first edition of a book which obtained universal acceptance, and exercised no small influence for centuries upon the literature and art of many nations. It was written during the first quarter of the 14th century.

According to Brunet there ought to be a leaf of Register at the beginning, but the first sheet consists of ten printed leaves, from which it would seem

that Brunet is wrong. 16401 (LUDOLPHUS) LEUĒ , ONS LIEFS HEEREN JHESU Cristi, sm. folio,

Antwerpen, Claes de Grave, 1536 16403 [PASSION DE NOSTRE SEIGNEUR JESUS

CHRIST, en figures] PRIERES A LA VIERGE en Rime Française, avec d'autres pièces en prose, sm. folio.

Manuscript on Vellum, written on 53 leaves (94 by 64 inches), of which 24 are ornamented with 26 remarkable Paintings of Our Lord's Passion all executed in Grisaille, the aureoles only being depicted with gold; in the style subsequently adopted in the Block Books; calf, gilt edges, £120. about A.D. 1350

A remarkable volume, whether we consider it as a series of extraordinary Paintings, or as an unknown work of early French poetic literature. The text is entirely devoted to the Virgin, and nearly all of it is in rhyme although not divided into separate lines. It commences as follows :

Ave en qui sans nul nombre a
Tant de biens que nus nes nombra
Ne nulz ne les pourroit nombrer
Maria en qui se ombra
Le solail qui desaombra

Gracia ta grace est si crasse
Nous tous que Eve fist a ombrer
Dont ne nous pout desaombrer

Mais Dieu qui se vout aombrer
En qui du tout nous desombra
Mes ton fils nons vout descombrer

Que toutes les autres trespasse, etc. 16404 VIDA DE JESU CHRISTO y de sus sanctos, folio, leaves numbered 227-458, numerous large woodcuts of good style, vellum, £5.

Caragoça, Bartholome de Nagera, 1548 This is only about half the work, but even as it is, it may be unique. No bibliographer seems to have known it. The compiler was Pedro de la Vega, as appears from a colophon printed in red on the last leaf. Although the book is imperfect, it has considerable value even as a collection of Spanish

woodcuts. 16405 HEAPHY (Thomas) the Likeness of Christ, edited by Wyke

Baylis, large folio, 12 large plates executed in gold and colours, in facsimile of the ancient paintings from which the recognized portraits of Christ are derived, including four on cloth, of remote antiquity, one in metal and enamel, and seven after mosaics in the Catacombs and Churches of Rome, with many woodcuts ; cloth, gilt edges, £3. 13s 6d

1880 Whatever may be thought of the desire to find real portraits in these pictures, their extraordinary interest cannot be contested, as works of early

Christian Art ranging probably from the second or third to the sixth century. 16406 LIPSII (Justi) de Cruce libri tres, plates-NICQUETI (Hon.) Titulus

s. n. [Aug. G. Zainer, circ. 1475] Bound up with a MS. on vellum—the first page illuminated—which contains a deed of assignment from Ludwig and Ulrich, Counts of Würtemberg, to Frederic Bishop of Constanz, dated 1436. This is followed by later documents concerning the same ecclesiastical property, down to 1479, at which date or soon after it is probable the book was bound, and these instruments

with it for safe keeping. 16415 MANNI (Dom. M.) Volgarizzamento delle Vite de Santi Padri,

The third and fourth volumes contain original Italian works written in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, which, as testi di lingua, and as pictu

This is a magnificent specimen of Venetian binding, the pattern of the ornament being of a grand style, and the use of gold luxuriant to almost an

extreme degree. 16417 PASSIONAEL. Hyr heuet syk an dat Passionael .

Lubeck, Steffan Arnd, 1507 There is fresh matter in the text, and a few of the woodcuts are new, some of the original blocks having probably been lost between 1492 and 1507. The second engraving in the volume is an example. In the edition of 1492 it represents a scene of decapitation by the sword; in that of 1507 one of the martyrs is subjected to the guillotine, and the executioner is in the act

of cutting the cord that keeps the axe in its frame. 16419 PASSIONAEL, efte Dat leuent der hyllighen to düde: vth dem
