En Paris, En casa de Hernaldo Caldera y de Claudio Caldera su hiyo, 1548 Neither of these two works are mentioned by Brunet, and from the fact that they were printed at Paris, it may be presumed that they were unknown to him.

The other work “ Carcel ” by Diego de Sant Pedro, of 96 numbered leaves with the printer's mark on the reverse of the last, contains Canciones, Villancicos and Romances. 6182 TARSIS (D.

Brucellas, 1608 " Roman fort libre, fait à l'imitation du Guzman d'Alfarache.

HERALDRY, ANTIQUITIES, HISTORY, GENEALOGY.

Heraldry is the last remnant of the Ancient Symbolism, and a legitimate branch of Christian Art; the griffins and unicorns, fesses and cheverons, the very tinctures or colours, are all symbolical,- each has its mystic meaning, singly and in combination, and thus EVERY GENUINE OLD COAT OF ARMS preaches a lesson of Chivalric honour and Christian principle to those that inherit it,-truths little suspected now-a-days in our Herald's Offices.”—LORD LINDSAY'S CHRISTIAN ART, Vol. II. page 49. 6183*CARTE GENEALOGIQUE de la Famille de PIPENPOY de Bruxelles (1331), et de la de VAN YPEN, on two skins of PARCHMENT, with sixty-six armorial bearings, 288

“ For Chronology, use the great French Work, 'l'Art de Vérifier les Dates.'Prof. Smyth's Lecture on Modern History.

“A splendid monument of learning, which has left little to be done by subsequent chronologists, besides the humble duties of translation and abridgement."-Sir Harris Nicolas.

“The great treasure of historical information.”—Sir Jas. Mackintosh.

“This is the great collection of chronological tables, the great summary of all history, ancient as well as modern, the great multum in parvo, for which if the Benedictines produced nothing else, the thanks of all subsequent scholars would be voted unanimously. It may be truly said that no book ever held so important a place in modern historical literature as this. It contains a most exact summary of the history of all nations; so exact, that to detect any error in it may, commonly speaking, be called an impossibility. The decisions of this book are always looked upon as tinal; he who possesses of copy of it has indeed a treasure. Several editions of this splendid work have appeared ; the old ones are not now to be purchased in a complete state except at a great price, twenty-eight guineas for the eight folio volumes, of which it consists ; even the new edition in 4to. is not much cheaper, being twenty-four guineas for ten volumes. The last edition in 8vo. is, however, more accessible, and sells at fourteen guineas for the forty-one volumes of which it is composed."-H. L. Jones, Gent.'s Mag. Dec. 1855. 6195 AUGSBURG.

Augspurg, 1483 Edition originale d'un ouvrage très-rare et curieux pour les figures en bois au nombre de 44 et 1156 armoiries qui le décorent. Elles sont toutes coloriées et représentent les armes des personnes qui ont assisté au concile ou divers evénements qui y ont rapport. M. Ebert en donna une description fort exacte et le regarde comme le premier armorial qui ait été imprimé.

Cette histoire a été écrite avec beaucoup de naïveté par un témoin oculaire, qui se nomme plusieurs fois, savoir f. 67 où il dit : und wass die mess also als dan ich Ulrich von Reychental das selb sahe, etc. ; il se nomme encore fo. 244 recto et fol. 246 verso. Voy. Clément, Bibliothèque curieuse, t. 7, p. 280 et suivantes ; Maittaire, t. 4, p. 449.

L'Enfant, préface de l'Histoire du concile de Constance, prétend que l'auteur n'était pas bien instruit de ce qui s'est passé dans l'intérieur du concile, mais qu'on peut compter sur tout ce qu'il rapporte relativement aux cérémonies publiques, l'arrivée et la reception des ambassadeurs, les actes de foi, les armes des pap-s, princes, etc., etc. les processions et autres choses de cette nature.

Il y a un feuillet dont le recto est blanc et non chiffré apres 160 et un après 168 (M. Ebert dit 169 ; mais 169 étant un acte de Sigismond et le verso de ce f. ajouté étant le portrait de ce prince, il semble mieux placé comme il se trouve dans notre exemplaire. Ces deux ff. ne comptent pas dans la numération, et portent le nombre total à 269. Le f. LXX est coté LXXX. Les figures en bois (non compris les blasons) sont au nombre de 44, savoir 3 à mi page et 41 occupant la page entière. Dix de ces dernières forment double tableau."
