1499 One of the most important works published by Aldus. It has a special interest for English collectors, because a part of the translation was made by an Englishman, Linacre, and a letter of William Grocyn to Aldus is printed near the end, which gives a number of details concerning the study of Greek literature in England at the time. This letter has been eulogized by both Aldus and Erasmus, and is the only published work of Grocyn, a native of Bristol, who, at the time he wrote, was Greek Professor in

Cook's First Voyage in H.M.S. ENDEAVOUR, in 1768-71, to Terra del
Fuego, Otahite, New Zealand, Australia, the Dutch East Indies, etc.
edited by Sir Joseph Hooker, 8vo. portraits and charts

Sir Josepo Hooker's motive in editing this Journal of long ago is to give
prominence to Sir Joseph Banks' indefatigable labours as an accomplished observer
and ardent collector during the whole period occupied by that expedition, and thus to
present him as the pioneer of those naturalist voyagers of later years of whom Darwin

is the great example.

58 BICKERDYKE (John). The Book of the All-Round Angler. LARGE

Paper Edition, thick 8vo. with numerous plates and woodcuts (price to
subscribers 218), Roxburghe binding

Only 200 copies printed. This book, which commences with an Introduction
written by Mr. Wm. Senior (“Red Spinner"), is eminently a practical one.

It will be found to contain more useful information on the various modern methods of angling in fresh and salt water than has ever been published in one volume and far in excess of anything published at the price. In whatever part of the United Kingdom the angler may be—whether on the sea-coast or inland, on sea, lake, or river-he will be

able, by following the instructions given, to fish with a fair chance of success. Botany: Chiefly from the Library of that amiable and accomplished savant,

the late Mr. Edwin Clarke, of Marlow, Bucks.
