These Close Rolls are Mandates, Letters, and Writs addressed in the King's Name to individuals for special and particular purposes, and were folded or closed up, and sealed on the outside with the Great Seal. It is chiefly in these particulars that they differ from Letters Patent, which were addressed to all the King's liege subjects, and not folded up, but had the Great Seal attached at the bottom. Information on almost every subject is to be obtained from these important Rolls.

1835 During the reigns of the Plantagenets, the Letters Patent are of a very diversified and interesting nature, relating principally to Prerogatives of the Crown ; Revenue ; Judicature ; Treaties; Truces ; Correspondence and Negotiations with Foreign Princes and States ; Letters of Protection, of Credence, and of Safe Conduct; Appointments and Powers of Ambassadors : indeed there is scarcely a subject connected with the History and Government of the Country which may not receive illustration from the Patent Rolls. In addition to the class of documents which may properly be denominated public, there is another relating more especially to the internal policy, &c. of the Kingdom, such as Grants and Confirmations of Liberties, Offices, Privileges, Lands, Wardships, Letters of Incorporation, Licences for Election of Bishops and other Ecclesiastical Dignitaries, Restitutions of Temporalties, Presentations to Churches, Vicarages, and Chapels, Creations of Nobility, Special and General Pardons, Special Liveries, Licences and Pardons for Alienations, Proclamations, and all manner of Commissions, etc

In these transactions, Sir Ralph Sadler, as Ambassador from England, bore an important part, and displayed great abilities as a statesman.

the same, PRINTED UPON VELLUM, 4to. hf. morocco, uncut, £7.

Only Two copies were printed upon vellum. Only 100 copies are printed, and more than half of them are dispersed. This is a reprint of an excessively rare and curious book, whose intrinsic and historical value has not been sufficiently appreciated. It narrates the author's wanderings through Europe, and his marches in company with an Irish regiment in the Imperial service; and contains a contemporary and curious record of the troubles of that momentous epoch, when the THIRTY YEARS' War was desolating Germany, and crowning with glory the brilliant achievements of Gustavus Adolphus, Wallenstein, Bernard of Weimar, Banner, Torstensohn, Piccolomini, Königsmark, John of Werth, and other great leaders on both sides of the struggle; when Richelieu and his successor Mazarine were at the head of government in France, and the great Condé was already advanced on his splendid career ; and when those civil troubles that ended in the death of Charles I. were convulsing the British isles. At page 16, there is an interesting description of London and its sights : The Tower, Westminster, Whitehall, the Exchange, London Bridge, Old St. Paul's, etc. all of wbich Carve visited, and here records his admiring impressions of.

The work has seldom been met with, complete, even by the most laborious collector of rarities; 80 that this reprint, with the addition of a GENERAL INDEX and a short ACCOUNT OF THE AUTHOR, will, it is hoped, be found a valuable accession to a library, whether it be considered as a curious book or one valuable to the historical student. From this author the historian Harte has taken his principal material for detail of the pomp

and power of Wallenstein; and Coxe, in the History of the House of Austria, acknowledges his obligations to Carve, whose work he styles equally scarce and curious. Indeed the powerful enmity which Carve provoked by his writings caused their destruction and suppression (in the Itinerarium, particularly of the last part); and this circumstance gave to them that character of excessive rarity which they have retained for more than a century and a half.

The following is Carve's own account of the circumstances under which the Itinerary was written : “ Not in the quiet chamber of study has it been composed, but beneath the tents of war, where my busy pen found no peace from the ominous clangour of the hoarse trumpet and the loud roll of the battle-drum ; where my ear was stunned by the dreadful thunder of the cannon, and the fatal leaden hail hissed around the paper on which I was writing."

“Mr. Kerney has made an excellent use of the very limited materials which exist for his biographical preface. The work is brought out in a most creditable manner."-J. R. JOLY, DUBLIN.

"In the formation of a British historical library no department can with more difficulty, or at greater expense, be supplied than that which relates to Ireland, whether the biography of her natives, or the ecclesiastical and general annals of their country are concerned. This arises from the excessive rarity of the volumes that treat of such subjects; these having mostly been printed abroad in a dead language, owing to political circumstances at home, and been destroyed in the tumults and revolutions that have during the last three centuries swept the surface of the continent of Europe ; while of the few that have escaped perdition, copies are solely to be found, for the most part, on the shelves of the British Museum, the Grenville collection (richest of all), the library of Bodley or Trinity College. Among books of this class of high scarcity, the Itinerary of Thomas Carve, or Carew, holds a foremost place, its value consisting not so much in the fact of its seldom occurrence, as in the matter of its text. Hence it is that the present handsome reprint-limited as the impression is to one hundred copies, and two upon vellum only-is peculiarly acceptable. Commenced about sixteen years ago by worthy Mr. Pickering, to whose taste and judgment English Literature is so largely indebted, the sheets, by untoward events, lay neglected in a warehouse until they fortunately became the property of one fully qualified to appreciate their value, by whose care and enterprise the book is now perfected. Mr. Quaritch therefore, has rendered good service to the learned world. In his selection of an editor Mr. Quaritch has been singularly fortunate. The attention bestowed by Mr. Michael Kerney over the re-impression of the last twelve sheets, the completeness of his index, and his concise yet adequately comprehensive prefatory observations, entitle him to much commendation.”Tablet, May 28, 1859. 189 CARVE (Tho.
