1644 This is no ordinary compilation of scattered notes, but evidently a work of original rescarch and great value by an antiquary of the first mark. The year 1644 was evidently that in which a large portion of the book was written, but there are additions of later date. There are also some historical notices and a few transcripts of old Welsh poetry, all written down about 1650.

The autograph of "William Phillips his booke" at the end, represents the name of the owner, about 1680-90.

This edition of James the Sixth's Acts, by Ross, is twelve years later

plans, elevations and sections of Public Buildings, Noblemen's and Gentlemen's Houses in Scotland, principally from the designs by the late William Adam, royal folio, 180 plates, hf. bd. from the Hamilton Palace library, £5. Edinburgh, 1809-10

The number of 180 plates is thus made up : In the series of 160 numbers, as given in the list of plates, nineteen numbers are repeated ; and the book to be perfect must therefore contain 179 plates. But in this copy, there is,

further, a second plate to No. 15, which is not mentioned in the list. 24305 ALEXANDER (William) [Earl of Stirling] The Tragedie of

Darius, 1604—The Alexandraean Tragedy, 1607-Tragedie of Julius Cæsar, 1607—Tragedie of Creesus, no title, 71607— Paraenesis to the Prince, 1604-Aurora, containing the first fancies of the Author's youth (Sonnets), 1604-in 1 vol. sm. 4to. hf. russia, rare, £7. 10s

Elde and Field, 1604-7

These beautiful Poems are so very rare that but few collections contain them. They are scarcely Scottish Literature, but as the work of a Scottish poet, may take their place here. In the Darius, Act iii, Sc. 3, some lines of the Persian king's soliloqay bear a strong resemblance to the celebrated passage in the Tempest, beginning with “ The cloud-capped towers." The Tempest, in all probability, was written subsequently to Darius, so that Shakspeare appears to have borrowed the idea from Lord Stirling. The lines

in Darius begin with “ Let greatnesse of her glascie scepters vaunt." 24307 ANCIENT SCULPTURED MONUMENTS of the County of

1790 Barbour was the first great poet in the English language ; he is not so distinctively and locally Scottish as later writers from beyond the Tweed, and he enjoys as an author some chronological priority to his contemporary Chaucer.
