ALTAR WINES

To the Rev. Clergy :

When weary of acid altar wines, you desire to
try a pure wine pleasing and grateful to the fast-
ing stomach, send for the unrivalled JURAM(X>M
wine. It is delicate and delicious. Or, if you dssira
a sweeter wine, try the VIN de TOURS. The lare
quality of these wines for Altar use is as choice bow
as when they were first introduced, over 15 yearis
ago, hy the Faculty of St Joseph's Theological Sem-
inary of Troy. Perfect proofs of purity and low priea.

THE CALENDAR OF THE SHEPHERDS— THE FIRST POPULAR

ALMANAC.

The Prtnting Press in the Service of the GhnroL— H

THE Bibliotheque Mazarine at Paris is an almost ideal library
to work in. Looking out from its broad casements across
the sparkling waters of the Seine one sits in full view of the long
stretch of the Louvre, before a prospect as animated and full of
sunshine as it is rich in historic memories. Though the Palais de
I'lnstitut, of which the Mazarine forms part, dates from the seven-
teenth century, the room itself is bright and airy. Readers are
not very numerous, for there is no great collection of modem
works to attract them. Hence a book is no sooner asked for
than it is found and brought by an attendant, while the silence is
undisturbed save for the occasional hoarse cry of " La Patr-r-ie,"
shouted by the news-vendors outside. For the enthusiastic stu-
dent of bibliography the Mazarine is quite a paradise.

Besides its manuscript treasures and other works of value, the
library founded by the great French Cardinal contains a collec-
tion of nearly two thousand incunabula. Of these the most
famous is the renowned Mazarine Bible, which in spite of all con-
troversies is shown by more recent investigation to be the un-
doubted work of Gutenberg, the inventor of printing,^ and the

^ See Dr. Paul Schwenke, UnUrsuchungen tur Geschichte des ersten Buck-
trucks, Berlin, 1900. As the late Professor Owen, the palaeontologist, was said to
be able to reconstruct an entire quadruped from a single specimen of its bones, so
Dr. Schwenke from an attentive study of Gutenberg's surviving work, has retraced
the whole typographical history of his great Bible. He tells us how long it took to
print, how many copies were produced, how many presses were employed, how the
punches, matrices, and type were made, and so on.

earliest complete book produced by typography. Of course, the
copy in the Mazarine is very far from being unique. More than
forty copies of this forty-two-line Bible— called Mazarine because
the copy in the Mazarine Library was the first to attract attention
— are now known to be in existence, and one of the finest, that
from the Ashbumham library, after being priced at ^25,000
(;^S,ooo) in Mr. Quaritch's catalogue, not long since became the
property of Mr. Robert Hoe of New York, making the seventh
copy which has crossed the Atlantic to find a home in the United
States. But it is not of the famous forty-two-line Bible that I
propose here to speak, but of another work of which the Maza-
rine Library possesses two absolutely unique editions, both
among the most precious of their kind, and both practically un-
