512 Stevens (Henry, of Vermont) THE BIBLES in the Caxton Exhibi-

tion Mdccc Lxxvii, or a bibliographical description of nearly one
thousand representative Bibles in various languages, chronologi-
cally arranged from the first Bible printed by Gutenberg in
1450-1456 to the last Bible printed at the Oxford University
Press the 30th June, 1877. With an Introduction on the His-
tory of Printing as illustrated by the printed Bible, from 1450
to 1877, in which is told for the first time the true history and
mystery of the Coverdale Bible of 1535. Together with biblio-
graphical notes and collations of many rare Bibles in various
languages and divers versions printed during the last four cen-
turies. Special edition, revised and carefully corrected, with
additions, 162 pp. uncut, LARGE PAPER, elegantly bound by Bedford,
in red morocco extra super royal Svo. London, Mdccc Lxxviii.

This work is of the greatest value as a Bible Bibliography, and exhibits in a
marked degree the depth of the author's knowledge. In the introduction he sets
forth, for the first time, his reasons for believing that the first English Bible of
1535 was printed at Antwerp by or for Jacob van Meteren, a theory that has now
become generally acknowledged. This large paper edition was printed on the
finest hand-made paper, under Mr. Stevens' own direction, and it is said that he
considered the copies bound by Bedford, in red morocco, as his beau ideal of what a
handsome new English book should be, both as regards printing and binding.

Dedie av Roy, fine clean copy in red morocco extra by Pratt

sm. 8vo. Paris, Estienne Michallet, 1681

containing Father Marquette's relation of his voyage down the Mississippi River in
1673, with the map of his route. The volume also contains one of the earliest

ing extract " La plupart ont cru que la terre qui est au sud de 1'Isle de Java estoit
attachee aux autres terres qui sont vers le Pole Antarctique & qu'on a decouvert
au Sud du detroit de Magellan : mais la route du voyage d'Abel Tasman, marquee
par des points dans la Carte cy-jointe, nous fait voir que c'est une Isle qu'il a
tournee toute entlere." This copy is quite perfect, but, as hardly two copies are
