FIRST EDITION. Generally considered as the first book printed in Italy with a date. If the "Donatus pro puerilis" was earlier printed in Italy, no copy of it has

ever been seen. There is some doubt as Dampier and Lord Spencer conclude with to the printers of this very rare work, Bp. Meermann for Sweynheym and Pannartz, Bibl. Sp. I. 205. Freytag Adp. p. 208. Audiffredi Ed. Rom. p. 1. Of the few copies which are known, the greater number want

the Errata of two leaves. The present copy is quite complete and was obtained at the Mac Carthy Sale. It is in beautiful preservation.

This first edition is rare, it was reprinted in Genoa, 1559.

"About 1468 Landino wrote his Dispu

tationes Camaldulenses. This work was first published without place or date but as Bandini supposes about 1472 or 1475. This edition is extremely scarce. Bandini could not find a copy in the Vatican Library." Roscoe's Lorenzo de Medici I. 103. "In these Disputations Landino has devoted the 3rd. and 4th., to a critical dissertation on Virgil whose works he afterwards corrected and restored." Roscoe's Lorenzo, II. 64.

LANQUETTE.

This is the fourth Edition; it is without printer's name and contains 384 leaves of which the last eight are not numbered. This edition is carried on by the author, Cooper, to the end of 1564, and therefore Ames vol. III. p. 1614 is mistaken in describing this as the same as the edition of 1549. Thos. Lanquet was proceeding in the 3rd Part of this Chronicle when he died in 1545, Cooper continued it from page 342 of this edition down to the year 1565.

Frederick Achilles Duke of Wirtemberg called an assembly of Nobles and others at Tubingen in 1613, to discuss the comparative merits and demerits of all the Kingdoms of Europe. The Duke himself, his brother the Duke of Saxony, the Duke of Sleswick - Holsatia, and other nobles made public speeches on this occasion pro et con. Lansius edited those speeches, which must have been very popular as this is a fourth edition.

LANSPERGIUS, JOANNES. An Epistle or Exhortation of Jesus Christ to the Soule, that is devoutly
