1665-1874 Complete sets of the unabridged Philosophical Transactions have now become very scarce. The present copy, as far as 1798, is from the old Towneley library. The continuation is similarly bound,
but not quite uniformly. Added to this set are the seven parts of “Philosophical Collections,” by Robert Hooke (Secretary of the Royal Society), published between 1678 and 1682, when the Society had intermitted publishing their Transactions. Bound up with these are also the following rare tracts by Rob. HOOKE and others :Lectiones Cutlerianiæ, Lectures Physical, Mechanical, Geographical, and Astronomical, plates
1679 An Attempt to prove the Motion of the Earth from Observation, with folding plate 1674 Animadversions on the Machina Coelestis of Hevelius, 3 folding plates
1674 A Description of Helioscopes and some other instruments made by Robert Hooke, 2 folding plates, and a table called No. 3
1676 Lampas ; or descriptions of some mechanical improvements of Lamps and Waterpoises,
together with some other Physical and Mechanical Discoveries, folding plates 1677 De Potentia Restitutiva or of Spring, explaining the power of Springing-bodies, to which
are added some Collections on Force Pumps, Fountains, Eruptions, and the Peak of Teneriffe, 3 plates

Woodwork and Furniture of Ancient Houses, chiefly of the 16th and 17th Centuries, by WILLIAM BLISS SANDERS, Architect, large folio, with 25 plates, photo-lithographed from original sketches by the Author, extra cloth, £1. lls 6d
1883 The above work has for its object not only the illustration of the carving of the period, but is also written with the view of drawing the attention of builders, cabinet-makers, and others to the honesty and soundness of the construction then in use : many of the principles observed in early work being at the present time almost entirely lost sight of.
Only a limited number of copies are printed.
The following gratifying letter has been received by the author from Professor Roskin, who very kindly examined the original drawings :
“ BrantWOOD, Coniston, LANCASHIRE, 18th February, 1881. "MY DEAR SIR,—My respect for your earnestness and admiration of your skill, have hitherto prevented my undertaking the difficult task of qualifiedly praising what, excellent for your immediate purpose, is yet not in harmony with the precepts of the best masters in wood carving. Forgive me my inevitable delay, I am now more at leisure, but may not be able to think of the matter for some time to come. I trust this note may assure your public of my sympathy in your general aims, and my gratitude for the sincerity with which you have represented both the construction and decoration of old English furniture.
“ Believe me, your faithful servant, " To W. B. SANDERS, Esq."

Shakspeare Quarto Facsimiles, executed
under the superintendence of F. J. FURNIVALL, Esq., M.A., Camb., founder and director of the New Shakop are Society, of Mr. W. Griggs, 36 vols. small 4to. hf. Roxburghe
1881-3 Price to Subscribers for the set was 6s per volume. A considerable stock of Vols. 1-8 having been destroyed by the fire of Mr. Griggs's Printing Office, the price of these is raised to £4.4s. The continuation will be supplied regularly at 6s per volume.
Every genuine student of Shakspere has always desired to own those Quartos of his Master's Plays and Poems which are the necessary foundations of the Text of so many of his greatest productions in the first three periods of his work. Not only in importance next to the first rolio, but even above it, for some Plays, and for all the Poems, stand the first or second quartos, from which, or completed copies of which, certain Plays in that Folio were printed ; and crery true and faithful worker at Shakspere's'text must want to have in bis own hand, under his own eye, and as his own, trustworthy facsimiles of these truest representations of the poet's own manuscript. Till now this has been practically impossible. Mr. Ashbee's hand-traced facsimiles, issued by Mr. Halliwell at five guineas each, could be afforded by only some thirty subscribers. But what then cost five guineas, without any information as to the Quartos purchased, will SHAKESPEARE QUARTO FACSIMILES - continued. now be buyable, in a new form, for sir shillings, with the addition of a critical Introduction to the text by a competent Shakspere scholar. It is hoped that all students and lovers of our great poet will at once come forward to support this new scheme, and render its success certain and speedy.
The New Shakspere Society at first intended to reprint the best Shakspere Quartos, but has now given up its scheme in favour of its founder Mr. FurnivALL, who has undertaken to superintend the issue of a series of photo-lithographic Facsimiles of all the most important Shakspere Quartos, to be executed by Mr. W. Griggs, of Elm House, Hanover Street, Peckham, whose long experience as working photo-lithographer to the India Office, enables him to guarantee the entire Jaithfulness of his reproductions. The Duke of Devonshire, Mr. Alfred H. Huth, the Trustees of the British Museum, the Master and Senior Fellows of Trinity College, Cambridge, and the Curators of the Bodleian Library, Oxford, have most kindly allowed their book-treasures to be photographed. Already 25 Plays have been photographed, and others are in land. The first nine Quartos, now ready, are the two Hamlets, 1603 & 1604, with Introductions by Mr. Furnivall. The two Mids. Nights' Dreams, 1600 (Fisher & Roberts), with Introductions by the Rev. J. W. Ebsworth. Loves Labors Lost, 1598 (Burby), and Merchant of Venice, 1600 (Roberts), with Forewords by Mr. Furnivall. The first and second Parts of Henry IV, by Mr. Herbert A. Evans; and the Merry Wives, by Mr. P. A. Daniel. Forewords for the following are also being prepared: The first two of Lear, 1608, by Mr. T. Alfred Spalding, and The Merchant of Venice (Heyes), by Mr. Furnivall. List of Shakspere Quarto Facsimiles, already photographeel
