BOOKS PRINTED AT PARIS FOR CAXTON

IOI. LEGEND A. Legenda secundum usum Sarum. Folio.
Collation unknown. (39 lines. 213 x 136 mm.)

Probably printed for William Caxton by the Paris printer
Guillaume Maynyal, about the same date (1487) as the ' Missale '.
Identified by E. Gordon Duff, who has kindly placed at my
disposal the following list of fragments known to him ; all are
presumably from bindings.

Fragments known.

i. CAMBRIDGE, University library (Sayle, I, p. 29, n. 132). 27 leaves, being
r 4, v i and 8, y 1-3 and 6-8, z i, L 1-3 and 7-8, M 6, N i and 8, P 4-5,
Q2, 5and7, T4-5.V3-4.

z. CAMBRIDGE, University library, 2 leaves (L i and 8).

3. Paris, BIBLIOTHEQUE NATION ALE Re's. B. 1353. Seven leaves (G i, L 1-3

and 3 others, somewhat soiled) from the binding of a volume containing
books printed in 1547-1548 by Grafton (288 x 193 mm.).

4. CORPUS CHRISTI COLLEGE, Cambridge. Two leaves.

5. CLARE COLLEGE, Cambridge. One leaf.

6. WESTMINSTER ABBEY. One leaf.

In 1496 the Churchwardens of St. Margaret's, Westminster, owned no less than
fifteen copies of ' bokes called legendes of the bequest of William Caxton '.
These books they sold at five or six shillings apiece ; about 1502 they only
had one copy left. Blades, who has published in full (I, p. 121 ; II, p. 263)
the accounts referring to these copies, thought that they were of the third
edition of the ' Golden Legend ' ; but E. G. Duff has shown to a certainty
that they must have been copies of the lost ' Legenda Sarum '. Not once
in the accounts are they called 'Golden legends' but always 'legende',
' a printed legende ', ' a prynted legende book '.

1496. One copy to William Ryoll.
