“ Fleury's History of the Church is the best that has been written, and the preliminary discourses are even better than the history." - Voltaire.

“ Readers, whether Catholic or Protestant, who are solicitous to form a right judgment concerning the disputes of ancient times, cannot be thought to do their duty without the perusal of the excellent discourses of the Abbé Fleury."'--Sir Jas. Mackintosh.

1828 “One of the most curious works published in Paris within the last month, and distinguished for its learned research, is the Critical History of Gnosticism, &c.' by M. Matter. His work, forms two volumes, 8vo, and which has been rewarded by the Académie des Inscriptions et Belles Lettres, is divided into three sections. In the first, after taking a rapid survey of the writers, ancient and modern, who have treated of the Gnostic Philosophers, the author shews the origin of their brilliant speculation, by bringing to view some of the most celebrated doctrines of antiquity.

[ocr errors]

The second section is devoted to the comparative examination of the divers systems established by the three grand schools of Gnosticism—those of Syria, Egypt, and Asia Minor. In the third section he inquires into the influence which the Gnostic doctrines, in their conciliatory position, between the other schools of Christianity and Paganism, have exercised over both parties. The work is accompanied by plates, and terminates with a general estimate of the labours of Gnosticism,"— London Magazine, June, 1828. 2181*MELANCHTHON’s Werke, auswahl von Koethe, 6 vols. in 3, 8vo. half calf, neat,

Venedig, durch Gregorium de Gregoriis, 1518 This is perhaps one of the rarest books in existence, of which we believe no copy has ever been submitted to auction in this country. The version was printed at the expense of the Count and Countess of Frangepane, who at the time were, and had been for 53 months as prisoners of war, confined in the Gaol called Dorasel (Torcello, near Venice), and is supposed to have been entirely distributed by them in presents. In the first Woodcut are full length portraits of the Count and his Countess. The volume contains nearly 650 leaves, and its state of preservation is perfect in every respect. This is the only German book of any importance printed at Venice at that early period. Libri Catalogue.

This is one of the authentic sources that illustrate the early history of the Spanish government in America, which only rarely occur for sale and cannot be too carefully preserved. This MS. shews more particularly the ecclesiastical government; its power at this time (1598) in temporal affairs is shewn by the 211 decrees in the “ Orden de castigar los Yndios.” It is written by Ginez de Alarcon, notario secretario at CIUDAD DE LOS REYES (Peru), 1604. 2229 APOCALYPSIS.
