The Monumental Brasses of Cornwall, sixty-two
illustrative plates, with Descriptive, Genealogical, and Heraldic Notes, by EDWIN H. W. DUNKIN, Corresponding Member of the Royal Institution of Cornwall; Author of " The Church Bells of Cornwall,” royal 4to. cloth, 30s
Printed for the Author, 1882 * This work has been prepared with the objects of preserving accurate representations of the Ancient Monumental Brasses in Cornwall. In preparing the Plates great care has been taken to ensure accuracy in the details. In the descriptive notes, especially in the genealogical portion, will be found much unpublished matter, chiefly derived from the almost inexhaustible stores of information in the Public Record Office and the Probate Registry at Somerset House. It is hoped that these notes will prove of some value to students of Cornish family history. Many wills have been printed infull or in abstract, and, as contemporary documents, they will doubtless be perused with interest.—Preface.” Williams (Robert) Lexicon Cornu-Britanni
CUM : Dictionary of the Ancient Celtic Language of Cornwall, in which the words are elucidated by copious Examples from Cornish Works, with translations, and the Synonyms in Welsh, Armoric, Irish, Gaelic, and Manx, 3 parts in 1 vol. 4to. 400 pp. cloth, 368 Llandovery, 1862-65
the same, parts II and III, 4to. containing General Title, Preface and pp. 145-400, completing the work, sd. 258
1862 Very few copies remain for sale.
This work is the first attempt towards collecting and preserving all that now remains of the Ancient Language of Cornwall, which is supposed to have been that Dialect of the CeltoBritish that was once spoken throughout the central and southern divisions of England, by the original inhabitants, who ultimately coalesced with the Anglo-Saxons, an event which has in a considerable degr influenced the formation of the English Language. This is also the first time that the six Celtic Dialects have been carefully examined and analysed, and the results no less curious than interesting. Besides the cognate languages above mentioned, illustrations are added from the Sanskrit, Greek, Latin, and Germanic Languages.
Visitations of the County of Cornwall,
EDITED, WITH ADDITIONS, BY LIEUTENANT-COLONEL J. L. VIVIAN
(Co-Editor of the Harleian Society's Publications), to be completed in 15 parts 4to. (of which twelve are issued], Subscription price £3. 15s Privately printed, 1880-83
The Subscription List is now closed ; not a copy remains for sale with the anthor, who has transferred the few unsold copies to me.
The Heralds' Visitations of Cornwall in the years 1530, 1573, and 1620 are partially contained in a Manuscript Collection generally known as the “ Harleian MSS.," and have never yet been published. They are now offered to Subscribers in a comprehensive form, the descent of each family being brought down, where possible, to the present day, from anthorities such as Wills, Inquisitions post mortem, Parish Registers, Deeds, Family Records, &c., every effort being made to secure accuracy, and to produce a standard work of anthority on Cornish Genealogy. Numerous pedigrees of families, not contained in the VISITATIONS OF CORNWALL--continued. Heralds' MSS., will be introduced, showing family descent and connection, and in cases where a family migrated into Cornwall from another county the Visi. tation pedigree of the family in that county is added. The work, in two volumes demy quarto with index, is now in course of issue in Parts, and will be completed as quickly as possible, the number of copies being strictly limited to 500.
The Editor trusts that, in his endeavour to produce a correct collection of Cornish pedigrees, he will receive that support from his fellow Cornishmen to which he believes he is entitled.
Twelve Parts have already been issued, and have elicited the following among numerous notices :
Sir ALBERT W. Woods, Garter King of Arms, London—"It will prove a valuable addition to County Visitations."
Sir J. BERNARD BURKE, C.B., LL.D., Ulster King of Arms, Dublin, author of “Burke's Peerage and Baronetage,” “Burke's Landed Gentry," &c.—"The "Visitations of Cornwall' are admirably edited, and will form a most valuable contribution to genealogical literature."
G. E. COKAYNE, Esq., Lancaster Herald, College of Arms, London—"Let me congratulate you on your rapid progress, and thank you for the valuable matter you are giving us.”
Notes and Queries" The Editor expects to complete his undertaking in fifteen parts of forty pages each, and this unrivalled collection of Cornish Genea. logies promises to be of great local interest and importance. Every lover of genealogy will be grateful for his having collected in a single Work all that is recorded in the College of Arms about families of ancient gentry in Cornwall," &c., &c.
The Genealogist, October, 1879—“So far, then, as to the genealogies of the ancient Cornish houses at least, we are promised that they shall no longer remain an unwritten page of history. The pedigrees recorded at these three Visitations are not only about to be published as originally recorded, but will bo completed from sources such as wills, inquisitions post-morten, register extracts, fines, and other documents of public record as far as can be, and extended whenever possible to the present representatives.
“A cursory glance at those already printed in Col. Vivian's book is sufficient to satisfy the reader that no labour has been spared, or stone left unturned, to identify the Cornish noblesse of the day with their ancestors of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The genealogy of the house of Arundell alone occupies thirteen out of the forty pages of the first part of the book, and gives its pedigree in an unbroken line from Roger de Arundell, described in the Doomsday Book as holding lands in Dorset and Somerset, to the male representatives of the family now.
“We are glad to hear that it has already met with sufficient support to ensure its completion, and commend it to all interested in Cornish genealogy as a most valuable record of the ancient families of one of the least noticed but most interesting Counties in the Kingdom."
The first authentic record of the great county families of Cornwall. Colonel Vivian has strung together the heralds' visitations of 1530, 1572, and 1620 into one connected tableau, continuing from original documents such as Parish Registers, the Pedigrees from the latter date to the present day.
The Arms and Crest of every family are given.

S in Crabbe: “ Tales of the Hall," with Introduction (by Edward Fitzgerald], 18mo. xiv and 242 pp. cloth, 3s 6d 1882
The translator of Omar Khayyam puts before his friends a privately printed volume, of which only 35 copies are for sale.
There is so much that is unmistakably admirable in Crabbe, such genuine pathos, shrewd sense, kindly humour, and insight into character, and, moreover, such real poetic feeling and even power of expression at times, that much may be said for a different theory-namely, that Crabbe's merits are only cast into obscurity by the temporary drift of literary fashion, which happens for the moment to value in excess the qualities which he lacked, and to disparage to excess those in which he was really strong. His merits are of the lasting kind; and though Crabbe was anything but romantic, the age in which he lived is slowly beginning to take a certain colouring of romance as it recedes ; and after a time people may enjoy a sojourn in Crabbe's world—“Crabbe has a world of his own,” says Mr. Tennyson-as they like to pay a visit to Miss Austen's tea-tables and to visit Vauxhall with Miss Burney. The present editor, at least, has done his part, and we wish him all success. Curtis's
General Index to the Latin names and synonyms of the plants in Vols. 1-107 of Curtis's Botanical Magazine, roy. 8vo. pp.vi and 263, cloth, 21s 1883
Everyone who has had occasion to ascertain whether any particular plant is figured in this standard publication-of which 107 volumes have been issued-is well aware of the irritating waste of time they have suffered for want of a complete index to the whole work. This want has now been supplied by our townsman Mr. Edmund Tonks, B.C.L., who has thus earned the thanks of every botanist and horticulturist who may have occasion to refer to this voluminous work. Mr. Tonks has provided (1) a General Index to the Latin names of the plants depicted in “Curtis's Botanical Magazine” from Vol. 1 to Vol. 107; (2) an Index of the Latin Synonyms contained in the text ; and (3) a short Index of Popular Names of Plants. Further, the index is so printed as to admit of the insertion of references to the plants to be figured and described in future numbers of the magazine for many years to come.Midland Counties Herald.

1846 Now ready. Drayton's Poems: Selections from the Poems of Michael Drayton, 8vo. pp. xxiv, 200, sd. 12s 6d
1883 "As Drayton's work is so very voluminous and very unequal, and as there seems little hope that a complete edition will be published for a long time to come, the Editor has thought that a book of selections would be acceptable to many readers. The present volume contains copious extracts from the Heroical Epistles and the Muses' Elizium : the charming fairy-poem Nimphidia is, of course, given in full. It need hardly be said that the text of the old copies has been faithfully followed. A brief introduction has been prefixed, and a few notes are added at the end. The book is handsomely printed in fcap. 4to. on Dutch hand-made paper.
“Only 155 copies have been printed, but the Editor does not pledge himself not to reproduce the volume in a cheaper form if he can find a publisher for it.”
