Boston, B. Green, 1707 EXCESSIVELY RARE : there was no copy in the magnificent Brinley collection. There are two titles, the Natik on the left, the English on the right; on the reverse of the latter the first page of the Indian translation is printed, faced by the first page of the English. These are paged 1, 1, and the two texts proceed then side by side, 2, 2, 3, 3, and so on till they finish on pages 36, 36. Four pages succeed, containing the first 28 verses of John in

ExceeDINGLY RARE. The Opata dialect is spoken in Sonora, Mexico. No copy is mentioned by Brunet, Brasseur de Bourbourg, Graesse, Leclerc, Vater, or Salva. The Maximilian copy fetched £6. 10s, in 1869. Collation :

EXCESSIVELY RARE. Title ; 7 prel. 11. ; text, with index (251 numbered 11.). The author was an Italian Jesuit and Missionary in the province of Sonora (in which state the dialect is spoken) for twenty-six years. His work is not mentioned by Brunet, Graesse, Brasseur de Bourbourg, Salva, Leclerc, or Vater, and there was no copy of it in the Fischer, Maximilian, or Andrade collection. In fact, I do not find any mention of it by any bibliographer,

except Beristain de Souza, and the compiler of the Ramirez catalogue. 30101 LOMBARDO (Natal) Arte de la lengua Teguima, llamada vul

garmente Opata, sm. 4to. AUTOGRAPH MS. neatly written, £10. 10s

About 1690 The value of this MS. may be estimated from the fact that perhaps no more than two copies are known to be at present extant of the edition which

was printed in 1702. It is the only (pata Grammar. Otomi : 30102 CARCERES (Fray Pedro de) Artezilla de la lengua Otomi

Po. de Carceres, g. de queretaro, sm. 4to. 114 pp. MS. in Gothic handwriting of the latter part of the 16th century, beautifully executed, and imitating the printed Gothic letters so well that, at first sight, it might rather be taken for a printed book than for a MS. sd. £15.

? Queretaro, about 1580 This is undoubtedly a volume of considerable interest and importance. The author was unknown to Beristain and other special bibliographers, and his name is not recorded by Siguenza and Boturini. Yet he must have been a scholar of high mark, when we consider that this is the first Grammar ever composed of the difficult Otomi language, in spite of which fact it is an elaborate and extensive treatise. Pedro de Carceres or Caceres may perhaps be sought for in some history of the Franciscan missions; he describes his work very modestly as compiled from the scraps of the well-deserving Luthers and his own mite.

30103 EXAMEN critico de la Gramatica Otoni de Neve y Molina ;

Discurso critico de la Doctrina Otomi, sm. 4to. original MS.
140 pp.
sd. £6. 10s

Mexico, about 1770 Both works by a single anonymous writer, who tells us, however, that he is a native of Otomi, who by forty years of continental study had made himself a perfect master of this, the most difficult of all American languages.

The first of the two treatises is one of the bitterest and severest critiques that have ever been written, and exposes the weakness and defectiveness of Neve's Grammar. Both the treatises contain not only valuable information on the language of the inhabitants of the Mexican Valley before the immigration of the Toltecs and the rise of the Mexicans—still largely in use among the

natives—but also interesting historical notices. 30104 GAONA (Juan) I. Coloquios de la paz y tranquilidad christiana.

Vera Cruz, about 1600 Both these works are in the OTHOMI LANGUAGE, written about the end of the sixteenth century, in a small, clear, and beautiful handwriting, with titles and initials in red. The first work is translated from Gaona's Nahuatl text printed at Mexico in 1582 ; the second is anonymous, but may be a translation from some well-known work. The value and interest of this little volume,

from a linguistic point of view, are very great. 30105 GUADALUPE RAMIREZ, Breve Compendio de todo lo que

Mexico, 1767 This volume is very rare and much sought for, as Neve is the best of all writers upon Otomi Grammar. He was the first to establish a proper system

of characters, which has been since retained. 30110 NEVE, Reglas, Diccionario y Arte del Idioma Othomi, 16mo. cloth, 98

Pimentel, who examined this MS., declared that the language was Matzahua (there being no specification in the book itself of the speech it refers to), and the book was accordingly so lettered. But the Mexican scholar Icazbalceta inclined to the belief that it is Otomi, and a comparison of the text of the Lord's Prayer, which is given by Bancroft in both those tongues, makes it almost indisputable that the vocabulary here is Otomi, not Mazahua. Its interest and value are in any case very great. The state and condition of the MS. leave nothing to desire. We havo been unable to discover anything

respecting the author. Tarahumara : 30113 TELLECHEA (el P. Fr. Miguel) Compendio Gramatical para

EXCEEDINGLY RARE. Not known to Brunet, Graesse, 'Brasseur de Bourbourg, Beristain de Souza, Salva or Andrade. It is very doubtful whether a perfect copy of this work exists.
