Edinburgh, printed by Robert Young, 1637.-The Psalter or Psalmes of David: According to the last Translation in King James his time.

In 1 vol. folio, Black Letter, fine woodcut initial letters, title and several outer margins mended, brown pigskin, 61. 6s. This edition of the Prayer-book, commonly known as " Laud's Book," is the one which Charles I. inadvisedly attempted to force upon the Scottish people in 1637, a proceeding which led to the well-known " Jenny Geddes" incident in St. Giles' Church, and ultimately to the signing of the Covenant. Having been withdrawn within a few months after publication, the book is naturally very scarce. It ends with the catchword" Certaine," it being originally intended to append " Certaine Prayers." It also contains the rare original leaf Hh. 3, in which the Printer omitted a verse and a half at the end of Psalm 109. The blank leaf preceding the title bears the inscription, "E libris Tho. Lampl[ugh]," who was Bp. of Exeter in 1676 and Archbp. of York, 1688.

This curious work, addressed " To the right honourable and my noble parts, my Lords Commissioners appoynted for reformation of diuerse abuses, and first of Tithes," is in English, in spite of its Latin title. It has several MS. corrections, probably by the author's hand.

Sm. 4to, blue morocco extra, gilt edges, VERY RARE, from Dr. Laing's Collection, 4l. 1os.

[Translated by R. C.] Edinburgh, Imprinted by Andrew Hart and Richard Lawson, 1608. Folio, old calf, 61. 6s.

The intention of this work was to show that the many wonders and marvels narrated by Herodotus ought not to be discredited, seeing that they were equalled in strangeness and improbability by incidents of quite recent date, and in support of this the author relates a mass of stories which certainly convey a very low opinion of the morality and manners of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, especially as regards the clergy and religious orders.
