BI BLIOTHECA CANTIANA, a Bibliographical Account of

what has been published on the History, Topography, Antiquities, Customs, and Family Genealogy of the COUNTY OF KENT, with Biographical Notes by JOAN RUSSELL SMITH, in a handsome 8vo. volume, (pp. 370), with two plates of fac-similes of autographs of 33 eminent Kentish Writers, 148-LARGE PAPER, £1. 18

1837 Contents.-I. Historians of the County.-II. Principal Maps of the County.-III. Heraldic Visitations, with reference to the MSS. in the British Museum and other places.-IV. Tracts printed during the Civil War and Common-wealth, 1640-1660—V. A Chronological List of all the LOCAL, PERSONAL and Private Acts of Parliament (upwards of 600) which have been passed on the County, from Edward I. to Queen Victoria.- VI. Works relative to the County in General.VII. Particular Parishes, Seats, Customs, and Family Genealogy, in alphabetical order. The work also comprises a notice of every paper which has been written on the County and published in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, Gentleman's Magazine, Archæologia, Vetusta Monumenta, Topographer, Antiquarian Repertory, and numerous other valuable publications, with a copious Index of every person and place mentioned throughout the volume.

“ This volume belongs to a class of great atility, and requires much diligent research and attention in all its parts to render them what they ought to be. We congratulate Mr. Smith on the performance of his task. His work is a sine qua non to every Kentish Library, and one which the general historian and antiquary will do well to consult. It seems to us to be very accurate and complete, and we are sure that it contains much curious and valuable information-LOCAL, BIOGRAPHICAL, TOPOGRAPHICAL, ANTIQUARIAN, BIBLIOGRAPHICAL, STATISTICAL, and NATIONAL. We recommend it heartily.”-Lit. Gazette, Nov. 4, 1837.

The industrious compiler of the volume before us has shown how largely the history and antiquities of Kent have already occupied the attention of Topographers and Antiquaries; and, by exhibiting in one view what is now before the public, he has at once facilitated the researches of future writers, and has pointed out how ample a field still remains for their labours. The volume contains a complete catalogue of all the printed works relative to the county, including, with respect to the most important, not only their titles in length, but also useful particulars which serve as the guide for collation, in ascertaining whether a book is perfect, as the principal divisions of the contents, the number of pages, lists of plates, &c. We must also mention that it is rendered more readable and interesting by the insertion of memoirs of the principal authors, and the plates of their autographs.”Centleman's Mayazine, Dec. 1837.

The Monthly Repository, Kent Herald, Maidstone Journal, Dover Telegraph, Kentish Chronicle, Kentish Observer, Maidstone Gazette, and the Cambridge Independent Press, have each passed very high encomiums on the work.
