RECUEIL DES HISTORIENS DES GAULES ET DE LA FRANCE (CONTINUÉ PAR CLEMENT. BRIAL ET AUTRES BENEDICTINS DE ST. MAUR); 20 vols. folio, fine copy, uniformly bound in calf, very rare, £78 15s. Paris, 1738-1840 The Benedictines, termed by Clement XIV. " the fathers and preservers of history," have ever been the greatest labourers in the literary fields of History and Antiquity, and to the Benedictines of St. Maur in particular, we are indebted for a larger amount of knowledge of the history of Europe since the fall of the Roman Empire, than to all the world besides. Of the labours of that celebrated society, this "Recueil des Historiens des Gaules et de la France" is particularly interesting to Englishmen, as it appertains as much to English History as to that of France. Its rarity is so great that it may be years before another perfect copy will occur for sale. 669 BOURCHIER (Thomæ) Historia Ecclesiastica de Martyrio Fratrum Ordinis Divi Francisci, dictorum de Observantia, qui partim in Anglia sub Henrico VIII., partim in Belgio sub Principe Auriaco, partim et in Hybernia tempore Elizabethæ, idque ab Anno 1536 passi sunt; 18mo. fine copy, vellum, scarce, 12s. Ingolstadii, 1583

Thomas Bourchier was an English Franciscan friar, and, on the suppression of the mendicant orders, quitted England for France, where he published the first edition of this little book, at Paris, in 1582. This Ingolstadt reprint contains, in addition, an Epistle dedicatory of 11 pages, by Wolfg. Eder, the printer. Amongst "the English martyrs" is the notorious John Forest, of Greenwich, mentioned by Bp. Burnet; and his correspondence with Queen Catherine, to whom he was confessor, is given, as also that of the queen with him. Anth. Brorbe, Thos. Cort, and Thos. Belchiam or Beauchamp, are also particularly mentioned at length, as having suffered under Henry VIII. The execution of John Gray, at Brussels, and the persecution of the Minorites in Ireland, under Queen Elizabeth in 1571, are fully recorded, the narrative of the latter occupying 80 pages. 670 BOURDALOUE (Louis, de la Comp. de Jésus) Euvres Complètes, nouvelle edition, augmentée d'une Notice sur sa Vie et ses Ouvrages, &c.; 16 vols. 8vo. port. hf. bd. cf. £3 10s.

Londini, 1618 At the request of Archbishop Abbot, Savile edited this logical work of Bradwardine, one of the closest reasoners of his age, whose mathematical mind furnished it with a series of demonstrations founded on previous and admitted convictions. He was at once a great metaphysician and a great divine. "There was a depth in his researches," says Milner, "which entitled him to the title of THE PROFOUND."

These commentaries of this great

Reformer, the disciple and successor of

Luther, are in the form of discourses, admirably adapted for pulpit use, as

they define clearly the sense of Scripture, and so lead the mind to true piety without asceticism, without mixing up metaphysical disquisitions in discourses addressed to the heart. "My works," says Luther, "are but dross compared with those of Brentius;" and posterity has shown how fair an estimate this was by still considering Brentius as one of the greatest pulpit orators of any period.

"As in every monastery there was some curious mind fond of noting the great incidents of his day, every country in Europe has such chronicles. But I think with Dr. Henry, that, upon the whole, our annalists are superior to those of any other nation at this period. Such a series of regular chronology and true incident; such faithful, clear, and ample materials for authentic history, have scarcely appeared before the public. Nothing could be more contemptible as compositions; nothing could be more satisfactory as authorities."-TURNER.

Idem liber, editio altera; folio, calf, £1 1s. Paris, 1644 "The history of Matthew Paris, continued by Rishanger, details all these occurrences with the minuteness of an annalist, but with the spirit and feeling of an independent man. He rejoices in the acquired liberties of the nation; notices without acrimony the faults of the royal administration; and states with a fair censorial impartiality the avarice and tyranny of the popedom. I think I have never read a more honest historian."-TURNER. 712 MATTHEI-Westmonasteriensis Flores Historiarum, præcipue de Rebus Britannicis.

The great merit of Matthew of Westminster is his strict regard for truth. He was a most diligent compiler, and occasionally from sources long since lost.

"Florence of Worcester is particularly curious in the portion relating to the Anglo-Saxons, and the earlier Norman kings. He mentions a singular circumstance respecting the Thames, anno 1114, when he says the water scarcely reached the knees; his continuator's account of an eclipse of the sun in 1132 shows how little the best informed, including Henry and his Court, were able to account for the most natural phenomena."-TURNER. 713 MONUMENTA Historica Britannica, or Materials for the History of Britain from the earliest Period to the Norman Conquest.
