'"THE two extremely rare tracts here given
have been reprinted by Prof. Arber
in his " English Garner," if we can call
reprinting the issuing of a pamphlet not
only with the spelling entirely modernised,
but also with words and phrases inserted
or inverted to suit the Editor's taste. In
the " Tryumphe at Caleys " Mr Arber has
issued the Second Edition, giving us no
particulars whatever as to the First. In the
list of the noblemen of France, Mr Arber
modernises the names and yet gives us a
Cardinal Gramond, being evidently unaware
of the existence of the noble family of de
Grammont, and he equally fails to recog-
nise in the Comtc de Tonnore, the cele-
brated Armand, Comte de Tonnerre.
Anne de Montmerancy remains for him
an unknown actor on the brilliant stage,
and yet, surely, the name of the Montmor-
ency must have reached his ears.
I have here given an absolute reprint of
the first edition and have noted at the foot
of each page any variations in the readings
which occur in the second. Both Editions
were printed by Wynkyn de Worde, prob-
ably about November, 1532. The colla-
tion according to the copies in the British
Museum (c. 21, b. 20) is as follows. It is
a black letter, unpaged tract of four leaves.
Page I contains the title, with a woodcut
of Henry VIII. on horseback, with two
attendants.* Page 2 is blank in the First
* I believe the woodcut represents Henry VIII.
although the horsecloth has ajieur de lys on it, and not
the Tudor rose ; probably Henry wore the fleur de lys
in compliment to Francis.
Edition but contains a list of the noblemen
of France in the second. Then come five
pages of text in the First Edition, followed
by page 8 blank, whilst the Second Edition
has six pages of text. The second tract,
" The Cornacyon of Quene Anne," was
printed by Wynkyn de Worde in 1533.
I trust the few notes I have added, either
for the purpose of explaining obsolete
words or to give a slight clue to the
identity of the more important persons
mentioned, may prove of use to the
