Justus the Scribe, who states that the Homilies. Visions and Vigils of
Aragawi were translated by him from Arabic into the Geez by the command

EXCESSIVELY RARE. Apparently no other copy of the two parts
complete has been described before. There is in Mr. Huth's library a copy of
the Kirchem Ordnung, but the Catechismus is a Basel reprint of the same year,
and the compiler of the note in the Huth Catalogue evidently was unaware
of the existence of the Nürnberg original. He cites the editor of the
Bibliotheca Agendorum as stating that only one copy of the Kirchenordnung

had come to his knowledge, and that one lacked the Catechism.

A beautiful little book, extremely rare ; the value of which in this copy
is enhanced by additions of a very curious kind. Ten leaves of vellum at the
beginning, and ten others at the end, contain Prayers in a contemporary

drawings of biblical figures of which the outlines are formed by microscopic

writing. 17466 ELERI (F.) Cantica Sacra

From certain variants of the text, this volume was evidently printed before the Antwerp Bible of 1530, and must have been compiled from the New Testament issued by Simon de Colines at Paris in 1524 (the first printed part of Lefevre's translation).

S. n. (about 1584) Secretly printed. The author's desire was to expound the laws which would have been more efficient if “better executed by those unto whome our gracious Soverayne hath committed their execution ;" and he writes forcibly. The clergy of the time, who legally ought to have been men of worth and learning, are described as “cleane contrary, even the very tailings and garbage of the people, and such as can scarce say B to a battledore.” Another statement be' makes is '“ Alasse, our lawes are bels without clappers."
