2 ANTIPHONARY. MANUSCRIPT ON VELLUM,

i i-J by 8 J inches, by a German scribe of the second half of the
fifteenth century, with numerous initials in red and blue, in-
cluding one historiated with a picture of the Maries at the
Sepulchre. In the margins surrounding the anthem for the
Dedication of a Church there is a spirited drawing of "Jacobs
vision of the Angels ascending a ladder to Heaven. The style
of this drawing, as well as that of the binding, is suggestive
of Nuremberg. The condition of the volume is astonishingly
fresh. The margins are clean throughout and the binding
of stamped leather is so well preserved as to appear almost
new. It is protected with metal corners, and has clasps
of great beauty and elaboration, bearing the date Anno dni
1515. In a morocco case. At the beginning and end two
early devotional drawings are inserted, and on the verso of
fol. 152 there is a well-preserved PASTE ENGRAVING
representing St. Christopher. Engravings of this character

are of the utmost rarity. There is only one example in the
printroom of the British Museum. 90.

Edition of the First Series. 4 vols., 8vo, original cloth,
26. London: Benf/ey, 1840-47.

EARLIEST ISSUE OF ALL THREE SERIES ; with the Second
Edition of the First Series, in which a new Preface first appears. With
an autograph letter from the Author to Miss A&on, referring to the work
M . . . the legend you were kind enough to send me ... is a capital one,
with an excellent moral at its tail and I shall certainly endeavour to turn
it to account as soon as I can shake off the fit of laziness which has grown
upon me of late and seems to become more inveterate every day. The
fa<5t is that since Bentley and I have shaken hands and parted I have not
the same inducement to work, as one principal motive for doing so
previously was a desire to help a periodical which I had been instrumental
in bringing into existence, & from which I only retired upon the principle
of the well-bred dog who always walks downstairs the moment he suspects
preparations are making for kicking him into the street. With many
thanks for your kindness, which together with the double terms offered by
Mr. Colburn, may induce me to take a fresh start towards a third volume."
(Dated) "The Residentiary House, St. Paul's. Novr. I4th 1844." (Signed)
R. H. Barham."

ORIGINAL EDITION.

10 BIBLIA SACRA LATINA. MANUSCRIPT ON

VELLUM, 5^ by 3-^ inches, written in double columns

of 54 lines, probably in Northern France ', about the middle of

the thirteenth century. The initial to Genesis contains a tall

figure of Christ holding a book in His left hand and with His

right hand raised in beneditJion. Under His feet, as in the
well-known sculpture of the central porch of Amiens Cathe-
dral, are three lions and a dragon, an allusion to the Scriptural
prophecy " Inculcabis super leonem et aspidem." This is an
unusual treatment. Opposite the first page of the Psalter
there is a beautiful little picture of the Crucifixion, which is
also very unusual. The other large initials, of which there
are 8 1 , are painted in various colours, but are not above the
average of those found in the small Bibles of this period.
The initials to the chapters are alternately red and blue, with
good penwork flourishes. Morocco, gilt back and edges.

near to Felpham, Paris being scarce further off than London. But I hope
that France & England will henceforth be as one country & their Arts
one & that you will ere long be erefting Monuments In Paris Emblems
of peace." Addressed to " Mr. Flaxman Sculptor, Buckingham Street,
Fitzroy Square, London ", with seal unbroken.

" I am happy to find that you are so much pleased with my Journal of
A Tour to the Hebrides. . . . P.S. A Second Edition of my Journal will
appear in a day or two. It is considerably improved by a correction of
many typographical errors and other inaccuracies, by a table of contents,
several additional notes, and an appendix. If therefore the Irish Book-
sellers should have occasion to reprint my Book it will be obliging if you
will suggest that the reprint should be made from my second and more
perfea edition." (Dated from) "London, 20 Deer. 1785." (Signed)
" James Bos well." The letter includes a list of books and articles on
ancient Scottish music.

17 BREVIARIUM ECCLESIAE PARISIENSIS.
MANUSCRIPT BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN IN
GOTHIC LETTERS ON VERY FINE VELLUM.

1,487 pages, in double-columns, 28 lines to a full column,
size j$by 5 A inches ; ornamented with 15 elaborate borders,
35 initial letters, 15 historiated with miniatures, and very
numerous capitals exquisitely illuminated in gold and colours.
Thick small 4to, in a sixteenth-century calf binding, with
the sides stamped with rich gold ornament, having as
centrepieces the Crucifixion on one side, and the Infant
Christ on the other, with the double initial YY or ^A at
intervals along the border. 220. Circa 1380.

The fine chequered backgrounds in the historiated letters, and the
minute miniatures, mark the date of the manuscript. There is an
"Ordinatio de festivitatibus " in which the Easters of 1324, 1327, 1329,
[SS^j 1362, 1367, and 1372 are the starting points of the final paragraphs.
Therefore the manuscript was written probably about 1 380. The Calendar

is especially of a Parisian chara&er, and embraces a considerable number
of entries of liturgical interest.

1 8 BRONTE (Charlotte) Shirley, a Tale. 3 vols., crown
8vo, original cloth. 48-

London : Smith Elder G? Co., 1849.

FIRST EDITION. Fine copy. WITH 8 LONG AUTOGRAPH
LETTERS FROM THE AUTHOR, relating to her "Poems," "Jane
Eyre" " Wuthering Heights" and " Agnes Grey" but more especially to
" Shirley" and her sister Emily. These letters, which occupy 29 closely
written 8vo pages, were written between January, 1848, and November,
1850, and are addressed to Ellen Nussey, W. S. Williams, and to an
unknown critic, "K. T." Three of the letters are written in the masculine
gender and signed " Currer Bell," four are signed "C. Bronte" and one
C. B."

It is impossible in the limited space of a catalogue description, to give
an adequate idea of the interest, both literary and personal, of these letters,
some of which are unpublished, and others of which only partly so. A few
short extracts will have to suffice. "... Jane Eyre now seems adopted
by the Public, and I sometimes think has more than its share of favour,
but I will own to you that whoever could give me some idea of the first
impression usually produced by Shirley on unbiassed minds would be doing
me a kindness. . . . Shirley it would seem has not been a general favourite,
of the reason of its comparative failure I have not a clear idea. Tell
me ... where the disappointment lay, whether in the narrative, the
characters, or both. . . . Often have I been puzzled to know what Shirley
really was like. . . . The Notice in the c Revue de deux Mondes' is one of
the most able, the most acceptable to the author of any that has yet appeared.
Eugene Forcede understood and enjoyed Jane Eyre, and such evidence of
success would have excited an almost exulting feeling. . . . Wildfell Hall
hardly appears to me desirable to preserve. The choice of subjedt in that
work is a mistake it was too little consonant with the character, tastes and
ideas of the gentle,retiring,inexperienced writer. Shewrote it under a strange
conscientious, half-ascetic notion of accomplishing a painful penance and
a severe duty. Blameless in deed and almost in thought, there was from
her very childhood a tinge of religious melancholy in her mind this I
ever suspected, and I have found amongst her papers mournfull proofs that
such was the case. . . ."
