MISCELLANEOUS BOOKS. 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, £31. 10s

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.

THE HISTORICAL AND DESCRIPTIVE LETTERPRESS to the Preceding Work, by CHAMPOLLION FIGEAC and CHAMPOLLION, Jun. translated into English, with considerable additions and corrections, by Sir FREDERICK MADDEN, 2 vols. royal 8vo. half morocco extra, gilt edges, (uniform with the folio work), £2. Es

1850 These Descriptive Volumes, containing a great deal of general information on the subject of ancient manuscripts, may be studied independently of the work to which they are an accessory. Smith's (C. J.) Historical and Literary Curi

OSITIES; containing Facsimiles of interesting Localities, Engravings of Old Houses, Birth-places, Portraits, Illuminated and Missal Ornaments, Antiquities, &c. 4to. with 100 plates, some illuminated (pub. at £4. 48) elegantly half bound olive morocco, uncut, £2.

1847 A singularly amusing and interesting Repertory, of which the contents are too multifarious 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, Burns, Steele, Hume, Dr. Johnson, Benjamin Franklio, William Penn, etc. Smith's Catalogue Raisonné of the Works of the most

1867 "In publishing this Handy Book,' I have endeavoured, as far as it has been in my power, to attend exclusively to the necessities of the traveller who is ignorant of the language and customs of the country, and wishes to make himself understood in the easiest manner possible" Romancero del Cid Romancero é Historia general del muy

valeroso caballero el Cid Ruy Diaz de Vibar, en lenguage antiguo recopilado por JUAN DE ESCOBAR, edicion completa añadida con una version Castellana de la Vida del Cid por el historiador Aleman, Müller, 12mo. frontispiece, pp. aii and 368, FINE PAPER, half morocco, top edge gilt,

Francoforto, 1828 These famous Ballads are so excessively rare in any of the old editions that one is glad to meet with a good reprint like the above, which is besides most complete. The Romancero of the Cad is a combination of the Ballads in which the hero's life used to be told or sung amongst the people of Spain ; and is thus a far more national, valuable, and poetical series of pictures than the old Poema del Cid can claim to be ; it contains the perfect poetic life of a hero, who, whatever he may have been in reality, is one of the most noble and attractive figures in all legendary history,

Cheapinghaven [Copenhagen], 1866-68 The best and finest of all existing books It is, indeed, with some degree of pride upon a most interesting subject. The archæ. that we, as Englishmen, can refer to this work ologist will prize it no less highly than the as the modern, as we can to Hickcs's great ethnologist, for it concerns both equally. Cer- Thesaurus as the old standard authority on tain theories of race and language held by the Northern literature.”The Atheneum, London, author will not be acceptable to all students, Aug. 3, 1867. but no one can fail to appreciate the thorough and scholarly manner in which the antiquarian “ The deep erudition displayed in this great and historical features of the work are de- work, and the splendour, variety, and artistic veloped. It is a repository of facts and monu- excellence of its illustrations, were unequalled ments in wich every one who studies the anywhere."-Journ of the Histor. and Arancient history and civilization of Northern chæol. Association of Ireland, April 1869. Europe will be obliged to seek for information. The linguistic portion of the volume, which .... “ Never before have these runes the author calls “Old Northern Word-Row been investigated with a like amount of skiil, and Scandinavian Runic Word-List,” occupies care and judgment.”—The Reader, London, pp. 825-1019 in double columns.

An indispensable study-book for Architects, as it contains carefully drawn and measured examples of pure Greek and Græco-Roman Architecture selected from M. Texier's large work on Asia Minor: the plates were executed by the best engravers in France, and are therefore of the highest class. Altogether it is a work interesting and useful to the Architect, and attractive to the man of refined taste. Turkish English - Turkish Dictionary.

1875 “To those whose memories are old enough to go back through any considerable portion of Turner's life, or who may have seen the majority of the pictures he painted during so many years of loving labour, it will be at once manifest that no better selection could have been made of paintings which could be got at by any reasonable means. Many of his grandest productions are in this series of engravings, and the ablest landscape engravers of the day have been employed on the plates, among which are some that, we feel assured, Turner himself would have been delighted to see. These proof impressions constitute a volume of exceeding beauty, which deserves to find a place in the library of every man of taste. The number of copies printed is too limited for a wide circulation, but, on that account, the rarity of the publication makes it the more valuable. It is not too much to affirm that a more beautiful and worthy tribute to the genius of the great painter does not exist, and is not likely to exist at any future time."--Art Journal.
