Norimbergae, 1793-1803 The most elaborate and trustworthy record yet published of the early history of printing, it comes down to the year 1536, though the title-page of the first volume limits it to the fifteenth century. Panzer's great compilation consists of eleven volumes, published at intervals in the course of eleven years,—the first in 1793, the last in 1803. At first the author proposed to carry bis Annals no further than the year 1500, and be achieved his purpose in five volumes ; he then extended his design, and carried the work up to 1536 in six volumes more. There is, it may be remarked, one very serious defect in Panzer's arrangements. While he inserted books in every other European language -Swedish, Dutch, Bohemian, &c.—he systematically omitted all those in German, because they were included, or intended to to be included, in a separate work, the . Annalen der ältern deutschen Litteratur,'—which he unfortunately did not live to bring down further than the year 1526. 4560 PAQUOT, Mémoires pour l'histoire littéraire des Pays-Bas, de la Principauté de Liège, etc. 18 vols. fine paper, uncut, 32s
