Burton. The Romance of Ixabel Lady Burton, the Story of her Life, told

1897 Lady Barton was certainly a very fascinating woman; she came to me soon after marriage, whilst Captain Burton was at Fernando Po, for frequent gossips, eliciting from me all I knew about her husband. She was delighted to hear that before Burton's starting for Mecca, I had examined his muscular arm, and foretold that he would succeed. I got up an Arabic Lexicon in an Oriental guise, which volume accompanied him to Mecca. During the Burtons' married life we were constant friends and correspondents. After Burton's death Lady Burton occasionally consulted me. I saw her last whilst she lay on her sick-bed crippled by the internal disease which caused her death.

This, the only existing work on the Flora of Japan, of which so many Flowers and Fir-Trees have been introduced to Europe, is now complete as far as the materials left by the anthor would reach ; the MS. was arranged and conducted through the press by Dr. Miquel.

Silvestre's Universal Paleography; or a Collection

of Facsimiles of the Writings of every Age; taken from the most authentic Manuscripts existing in the Libraries of France, Italy, Germany and England, containing UPWARDS OF 300 LARGE AND MOST BEAUTIFULLY EXECUTED FACSIMILES, TAKEN FROM MISSALS AND OTHER MSS., RICHLY ILLUMINATED IN THE FINEST STYLE OF ART, new and improved edition, arranged under the direction of Sir FREDERICK MADDEN, Keeper of the MSS. in the British Museum. 2 vols. atlas folio, elegantly half bound morocco extra, gilt edges, £30. 1850

This is, perhaps, the finest book in the world, and the most interesting to the scholar and the man of taste. Three hundred facsimiles, of the choicest Manuscripts in Europe, need no other recommendation than to state the fact. The work cost nearly twenty thousand pounds in getting up, and the expense was chiefly defrayed by His Majesty the late Louis Philippe, who subscribed at the outset for sixty copies, at about £75. each.

1847 A singularly amusing and interesting Repertory, of which the contents are too multifarions to describe. We will only note that the Autograph Letters are chiefly of a literary character, and include such important ones as Coverdale, Sir Christopher Wren, Sir Isaac Newton, Cowley, Pope, Addison, Gray, Milton, Prior, Smollett, Sterne, Locke, Barns, Steele, Hume, Dr. Johnson, Benjamin Franklin, William Penn, etc.

Smith's British and Roman Antiquities of

the North WILTSHIRE Downs, in a Hundred Square Miles round ABURY, by the Rev. ALFRED CHABLES SMITH, M.A., Rector of Yatesbury, Wilts. 1 vol. atlas 4to. 248 pp. 17 large maps and 110 woodcuts, extra cloth, price £2. 28


This work, the materials of which have been accumulating for twenty-five years, is the result of innumerable rambles and rides over the Downs of North Wiltshire, and deals with one of the most important archæological districts in Europe.

It consists of a large quarto volume, containing an account of all the Barrows, Camps, Roads, Dykes, Enclosures, Cromlechs, Circles, and other British and Roman stone-and earthworks of a most primitive district, with references to and extracts from the best authorities as well as figures of many of the various urns, and other objects found in Barrows, Views of Cromlechs, Plans of Camps, &c. Bound up with this volume in sections, are maps on the scale of 6 ins. to a mile, com

prising one hundred square miles round Abury, and including thirteen miles from East to West, and eight miles from North to Sonth, being the great plateau of the North Wiltshire Downs, on which all the antiquities are shown and may be readily found and referred to by means of letters and figures.

This is a reprint undertaken by the Wiltshire Archæological and Natural History Society, in consequence of more than one-third of the first edition having been destroyed at the binders in the great fire in Paternoster Row, in 1883. The work can be obtained

The printing and posting of my Roug? Lists is a considerable expense to me. I therefore appeal to the recipients to favour me occasionally with an order, otherwise the sending of these Catalogues must be suspended.-B.Q.
