Editions was left out, or lefs particularly inferted. Then follows a Leaf (which remains but in few Books) because the Archbishop would not have it bound into the Copies he sent to his Friends, that thofe who cenfured it, of Oftentation, might relinquifh it (to ufe his own Word). It contains, in wooden Cuts, the Arms of his See, empaled with his own paternal Coat; with thofe of York, and his Fellow-brothers, as he calls them, the reft of the Bishops in her Majesty's Reign. Next is a Chronological Table of the Seventy Archbishops, under what King, and in what Year of his Reign made, how long they fat, when they died, &c. ending with the Year of Matthew Parker's Confecration. Then follows a Table of all the Archbishops and Bishops made in his own Time, that is, the Queen's Reign, beginning with himself, and on the Back of the faid Leaf, a Table of References to all the Archbishops Lives, both as to their Order, or Number of Succeffion, and the Page they begin at. Then begin the Antiquities of the British Church, in ten or a dozen Chapters, for the Space of forty-five. Pages; which leads us, in the next Leaf, to the lives themfelves, beginning with Auguftin; of whom, it is obfervable, in this Copy, there are two Lives; the one, in a new and more enlarged Scheme, printed in four Columns, and in twentyfour Pages; whereof, it is faid, five Copies have not yet been difcovered. The common Copies end with Cardinal Pole's Life, but in this there is added, the Life of Archbishop Parker himself, and that more enlarged than in many Copies; for, between the Pages numbered at Bottom 18 and 19, there are inferted three Leaves; the Whole making twenty-nine Pages. Thus ends this Work. But in this Copy there are joined fome Collections, relating to the University of Cambride, alfo written in Latin, and attributed to the fame Author` ; beginning with a Catalogue of the Chancellors, Vice-Chancellors, Proctors, and Doctors, who took their Degrees there, from 1500 to 1571; to which is prefixed, the Arms of the Colleges, and Halls; a Platform of the Schools; Arms and Seal of the Univerfity, and the Chancellor's Seal, with the Effigies of the Queen, on her Throne, crowned by Juftice and Mercy, and fupported by Fortitude and Prudence; all in two Leaves of wooden Cuts, and printed on Vellum in this Copy. After the faid Catalogue of fixteen Pages, here continued in MS. to 1573, are the Titles of the Charters and Privileges granted to that University, from Hen. III. to 14 Eliz. with fome Particulars of other Deeds, Univerfity-Books, Arms, and Utenfils, which were in the Cuftody of the Vice-Chancellor, Proctor, Regifter, &c. Next is an Account of the Foundation of the Schools and Colleges, Inns and Halls of that Univerfity. Laftly, a Table of all the Bishops which were educated there, from 1500 to 1571. And thus ends this Work, in this Copy, after which is the Index to the former Book of Ecclefiaftical Antiquities; and after all, a Tranfcript in three blank Pages of

the Catalogue, printed in another London Edition, of fuch Books as the faid Archbishop Parker gave to the common Library in Cambridge, in 1574. And on a blank Leaf, at the Beginning of the Book, is pafted a Print of the Archbishop neatly graved by one of his own Artifls, named Remigius Hogenberg, Anno 15-3, in the Seventieth Year of the faid Archbishop's Age.

Kirflenius's Life of the four Evangelifts is extracted from a

very curious antient Arabic MS. in the Imperial Library at
Vienna, communicated to the Author by Mr. Tengnagel,
Librarian to Rudolphus II. to whom it is dedicated. The
Author, who was a Doctor of Phyfic, at Breflaw, in Silefia,
feems to have been a Man of Learning and Curiofity; and
the Piece itself is full of Erudition. It is remarkable, that,
though the Life of Alfred is compofed in Latin, it is wrote
in the Saxon Character. It is rendered more valuable by
many MS. Notes, with which it is interfperfed.

This curious Piece contains an Account of all the illuftrious
Perfons, of both Sexes, appertaining to the noble Family of
Leflie; as alfo a Genealogical Table of all the Families de-
ducing their Original from Bertholdus, the great Ancestor of
the Leflies, who came out of Hungary, with Queen Margaret,
into England, about the Year of our Lord 1057, and from
thence went into Scotland, in the Reign of Malcolm III. The
Author proves this noble Family to be of Hungarian Ex-
traction, from the modern Names, of feveral Places in Hun-
gary, which plainly allude to the Word Leflic, as LESLINIA,
LESSILIA, LELES, &c. In fhort, nothing can be more
worthy the Perufal and Regard of a Member of any Family
fpringing from the illuftrious Bertholdus Leflie than this Piece,
as it gives an ample and full Description of
Family defcended from him, in whatever Country fettled.
It is dedicated to Count Lefie, one of the Emperor Leopold's
moft famous Generals, whofe Effigies, extremely well done,
is prefixed to the Work. The Genealogical Table above-
mentioned seems to be invaluable, and confifts at least of
three or four Sheets.
