Vol. II. is practically a Supplement. It contains (28 pages) an account by the Abbé Delaunay of the Presumed Authors of the Imitation and is illustrated with portraits of John Gersen (thirteenth century), John Gerson (1363–1429), and Saint Thomas à Kempis (1380–1471), also of Michel de Marillac (1563–1632), whose edition has been followed in this work.
It has also a “Histoire de l'Ornementation des Manuscrits par Mr. Ferdinand “ Denis,” the librarian of Ste. Geneviève at Paris, published 1857. It is very fully illustrated with “letters” and other examples of the illuminated manuscripts described in the Essay, (143 pages.)
The volume closes with Tables (1) of the Manuscripts referred to in the “ Notice" or Essay by Mr. Denis and reproduced in the Imitation; and (2) a table giving in respect of every page the name of the designer, the chromo-engraver, and the reference to the manuscript from which the illustration is taken.
By way of borders to this last index are given the figures of Jollat, Beham, and Holbein from their Dances of Death. The 53 principal wood engravings are Holbein's celebrated figures from his Triomphe de la Mort. The smaller subjects, in which two personages only are represented, are taken from Simon Vostre's Dance of Death in his Book of the Hours; and the four designs of pastoral scenes on the second and third pages of the index are from the same work. The two figures of “Marguerite" and the “Woman” immediately following Holbein's Dance are after Hans Beham, The “Hurdy-gurdy player," the “ Painter," the “Blind man," and the “Cook” are from the “Danse de Basle de Merian;" that of “the Plague 1679" is an engraving of the seventeenth century, in which the woman who is seated at the foot of the tree represents the town of Vienna which was scourged in 1679 with a plague introduced from Turkey; the remaining two,“ the Moorish King' and“ the Author,” are from the Dance of Death of Garnier of Troyes.

The work gave great offence to the Reformers, and in 1550 Richard Grafton published an Answer, entitled “The Alcaron of barefote Friers, that is to say, an Heape “or number of the blasphemous and tryfling Doctrines of the wounded Jdole Saint

1882. 8vo. Cloth, top edges gilt. :: This is No. 19 of a limited edition of 50 copies. It has a eulogistic Preface (pp. 5-10) and an Essay on “The Sonnet and the Canzonet” (pp. 13–35), by F. B. Sanborn, of Concord.
Mr. Sanborn ingenuously remarks that Mr. Alcott has “ written with little uniformity “in the order and number of his rhymes.” He might have added, or of rhymes at all -2.g., "hours” and “ours” (Proem), “ beautiful” and “wonderful” (p. 85), et sim. pass. In Sonnet XXI., line i rhymes with nothing, and keeps a cold companionship with line 8, also unrhymed. They are 14-lined poems——not sonnets.
Mr. Alcott was an American teacher and philosopher—first in Connecticut, then in Boston, and lastly in Concord.
The Sonnets and Poems are given under numbers only, without any titles. Most of them are addresses to authors or persons of note, and this edition is accompanied by a Portrait and Autograph of the Author and 22 photographs of the persons “sonnetized,” including Dr. Wm. H.
