lithography an art which Curmer has done as much to refine as any man in
Europe witness the " Hours of Anne of Britanny," " Imitation of Christ,"
etc. Foucquet was painter to Charles VII and Louis XI, Pope Eugene
IV, and miniaturist to Stephen Chevalier, Treasurer of France, etc., and his

floriated borders, FACSIMILES of the original, in gold and colors. Vol. 11 con-
tains a complete exposition of the illuminations, etc., and a life of Foucquet,
with additional ILLUMINATIONS, and many WOODCUTS.
