kirk of Scotland, xxix day of August. 1552 THE FIRST BOOK PRINTED AT ST. ANDREW'S, AND EXCESSIVELY RARE. There are only three or four copies in existence. It would not, however, be surprising if every copy had perished under the destructive rage of the triumphant party of Reform. Religious animosities burned as fiercely in Scotland as in any other country in that age. The Archbishop was taken prisoner

by his enemies in 1571, and immediately hanged. 17568 TAE CATECHISM set forth by Archbishop Hamilton printed at Saint

Andrews 1551; together with the Two-penny Faith 1559 (both reprinted in black letter), with preface by Prof. Mitchell, 8vo. cloth, £2.

Nicholas Gallus (Hahn) was a pugnacious Reformer, the disciple of Luther, but managed to quarrel with Melancthon and others of his associates.

Curious references to the doctrines of the Anabaptists, the Zwinglians, and others, are found in his preface. At the end of the Catechism is added a singular relation of an imaginary dream, in which Luther appears to Gallus and complains of the gradual degeneration taking place amongst the Reformers. This piece, entitled Klagrede, was intended as a reply to the Querela Lutheri, published in March, 1554. The book ends with a funeral

sermon by Hieron. Rauscher on the Pfaltzgräfin Elizabeth. 17573 AUGSPURGISCHE CONFESSION (die) aus dem rechten Original-

Edinburgh, Henrie Charteris, 1581 UNIQUE: this copy, formerly in the possession of the late David Laing, being the only one now in existence, so far as has been ascertained. It was unknown to the editor of Craig's Short Summe (also printed by Charteris in 1581), and the orthography of the text seems to shew that the present Forme and Maner of Examination was not compiled by Craig like the other Catechism. -Craig compiled a brief " Forme of Examination," which was printed “for the first time" in 1591, and which must consequently be a quite different book

from this. 17580 CRAIG (John) Shorte Summe of the whole Catechisme, reprinted

matized “ Maria Stevarta. Veritas armata."
