and of the Appendix Regni Congo to Pars I. of the Second Series, neither of which belong to the first editions of those parts must not be overlooked. This fine series was purchased of the late Mr. Thorpe, some years since, for £175.

As considerable variations are found in sets of De Bry, this copy must be accepted by the purchaser as not being subject to collation.

Complete sets like the above have sold at very high prices. Un exemplaire de cette collection des grauds et petits voyages, qui renfermait plusieurs doubles, en 29 vol., m. r. tab., a été vendu en 1792, chez Mr. de Brienne, 6300 fr. ; il a passé en Suède. Un exempl. appartenant au colonel Stanley, en 7 vol. mar. bl., comprenant 11 parties des grands voyages doubles, ainsi qu'un grand nombre de gravures répétées, a été vendu 546 liv. st. L'exempl. de Mr. Mel de Saint-Céran a été porté à 1529 liv. 19 s. en 1780. At Paris's sale a copy done up into 60 vols. fetched £210.; Thorpe seems to have bought it, be subsequently sold it for £400. Gardner's copy, containing the original edition of the Elenchus, and some variations, fetched, 1854, £240.; Lord Stewart de Rothesay's copy, with the Elenchus, the Additamentum nonæ Partis, the Appendix Tomi decimi, duplicates of the first six parts of the America (second edition, containing additions or variations) and the Appendix Regni Congo, fetched, in 1855, £205.; a copy from the stock of Payne and Foss, made up by Messrs. De Bure, complete, but the Elenchus reprint, and without one Map in the 12th part of the Petits Voyages (Descriptio Chorographica Indiæ Orientalis), I bought in 1857 for £150, and sold for £165.

The excessive rarity of a complete set of De Bry's Voyages is universally known; and the trouble and expense which attend the Collector of a complete De Bry, has been felt and acknowledged by many: De Bure devotes 118 pages to this work. Those who wish to possess a fine and perfect copy of a work so much esteemed, should not lose this opportunity.

** The Collection of Voyages and Travels into the various countries of the East and West Indies by the De Brys, is certainly a most extraordinary performance; and the difficulty of obtaining a perfect set can be readily imagined when the mode of publication in detiiched portions is taken into consideration. The very quaint, may be truthful, but most amusing engravings, with which the series is illustrated, rendered the work excessively popular, and it will always remain an invaluable record of the Aboriginal Inbabitants of those Regionş. The value and importance of this celebrated Collection of Voyages may excite a more than usual appreciation of its merit and rarity, from the circumstance of the National Institute of France having appointed a Special Commission to examine and make a minute report of its contents, of the variations between the several editions, and every circumstance connected with their publication; which Report was arranged and published by Camus, by the order and at the expense of the Institute.

" This important Collection should not be regarded merely as a book of curiosity, on account of the number of its engravings, and its extreme rarity. These Histories of Voyages and Travels, made several centuries back, in countries a large part of which are even now imperfectly known, contain, in the midst of a multitude of fabulous details, very interesting particulars, and valuable information, of which they are the primitive, and in some instances, the only source. De Bry's Collection is especially useful in the present day, for the purpose of insti. tuting comparison between his narratives and those of modern travellers to the same countries : and many of his statements, formerly reputed fabulous or exaggerated, have been confirmed by more recent accounts."-Bibliotheca Grenvilliana, Vol. I. p. 184.

En 1729 les auteurs du catalogue de la bibliothèque de Wilenbroeck, publié à Amsterdam, vantèrent l'exemplaire de cet amateur comme presque sans pareil ; ils avouoient néansmoins qu'il leur avoit été impossible d'y reunir la douzième et la treizième parties des grands voyages.

Ce qui fait estimer la collection donnée par de Bry et ses héritiers, c'est la réunion de plu. sieurs des premiers voyages aux deux Indes, entrepris depuis la fin du 15e siècle, et la multitude tant de cartes que de planches dont les relations sont accompagnées. Quelques unes de ces relations n'ont point été imprimées ailleurs ; d'autres avoient été imprimées avant d'être recueillies par les de Bry. Ces anciennes relations ont le mérite de faire connaitre les contrées et les hommes tels qu'on les trouva aux premiers temps des découvertes.”—Camus, GRANDS VOYAGES, page 25. 3558 DE BRY “Petits Voyages,” Indiae Orientalis, partes I-X., being all that was .. published of the second edition, bound in 2 vols. folio, text and plates remarkably clean, calf gilt, £8. 88

Ce Livre ha esté ainsi ordonné par Olivier Bisselin, homme tres-expert à la

Mer. Et achevé d'imprimer à la fin du mois d'Avril, en l'An 1559 The first work, the Voyages of Alfonce, must have been printed in 1558 at the latest, as Saint Gelais died in that year, and Jan de Marnef in his " Au Lecteur" speaks of him as living. As nearly all the copies of this scarce book vary in the arrangement, this, therefore, will not be sold subject to collation, although there can be no doubt of its being perfect, as it contains the full number of leaves as given by Brunet for both parts. The following is the collation of the present copy :--Title with Jan de Marnef au Lecteur on the reverse. Signatures a ii. iii. iv. containing “ A l'Ombre de Saingelais" (sonnet, signed Sc. de S. M. i. e. Scevole de Sainte Marthe); eight quatrains, headed “Jan de Marnef," “ Sonnet d'Alfonce" (signed Rog, Maïs), and “ Bref Recueil du present Livre,” together 3 leaves. Next follow A-Riv., 68 numbered leaves containing the Voyages. The second part, including title-page with privilege on the reverse, occupies 28 leaves, not numbered, but having signatures A to G in fours. Captain Alfonce, who seems to have coasted Europe, Asia, Africa, and America, speaks of Fez as “grande comme Paris ou plus," and mentions a city in the Isle of France “ qui ha plus de circuit en murailles que Paris." The description of the British Islands is very curious, and the mistakes in the names (such as Hulin for Dublin) most amusing. The captain mentions in the Isle de Main “que naissent des hommes queuez." 3565 ALMEIDA. ROTEIRO GERAL dos Mares, Costas, Ilhas, e Baixos, reconhecidos
