1303 CHRISTMASTIDE, its History, Festivities, and Carols. By William Sandys, Esq., F.S.A. In a handsome vol. 8vo, ILLUSTRATED WITH 20 ENGRAVINGS AFTER THE DESIGNS OF J. STEPHANOFF. 58 (pub. at 148)




Its title vouches that Christmastide is germane to the time. Mr. Sandys has brought together, in an octavo of some 300 pages, a great deal of often interesting information beyond the stale gossip about "Christmas in the olden time," and the threadbare make-believes of jollity and geniality which furnish forth most books on the subject. His carols too, which include some in old French and Provençal, are selected from numerous sources, and comprise many of the less known and more worth knowing. His materials are presented with good feeling and mastery of his theme. On the whole the volume deserves, and should anticipate, a welcome.-Spectator.

2 parts in 1

PRIVATELY PRinted by the MAITLAND CLUB, Edinb. 1839 The Chronicle of Lanercost, now printed for the first time, contains a general history of the affairs of England and Scotland, together with incidental allusions to Continental proceedings, 1201 to 1346. The highest estimation is given of the work by Wanley, Nicholson, Lord Hailes, and Tyrrell the historian, who says "I have been beholden to the Manuscript Chronicle of the Abbey of Lanercost, in Cumberland, which contains so exact an account of our English affairs, especially in all things relating to Scotland, that one may admire how these monks, that lived in so remote a corner of England, should have come to that nice and particular information of the most civil and military transactions."

By John Capgrave. Edited by the Rev. Francis Charles Hingeston, B.A., of Exeter College, Oxford. Pp. 524; with illuminated facsimile page, Historical Introduction, Glossary, and Index. Royal Svo, half bound. 88 6d


This Chronicle is now first printed from the Autograph MS. of the author (a monk of Lynn), which is preserved in the Public Library at Cambridge. The history is carried down to the year 1417. It was written early in the reign of Edward IV., to whom it is dedicated. The tex has been carefully collated

with the duplicate MS. which is preserved in the Library of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. Historically, this Chronicle forms an important contribution to our literature, and throws much light upon the history of this country. Philologically, as a specimen of the state of the East Anglian dialect in the middle of the fifteenth century, it is of almost equal value; and this part of the subject is fully illustrated by an ample Glossary. Appended is a full Index, containing all names of persons and places, and so compiled as to afford a fair analysis of the contents of the work. The volume is also preceded by an Introduction, in which the credibility of the historian and the results of his labours are discussed. Five Appendices contain documents, &c., throwing light upon the Chronicle or upon the private history of the author. It cannot be doubted that Capgrave's Chronicle will be welcomed by earnest students of our history; while the fact that it is written in our own language, and in an interesting and simple style, invests it with additional attractions.

1314 CHRONICON Monasterii de Abingdon. Edited by the Rev. Joseph Stevenson, M.A., of University College, Durham. Vol. I., from the Foundation of the Monastery until the Norman Conquest. Pp. 528, with illuminated facsimile page, royal 8vo, half bound.

88 6d


This Chronicle, when completed, will embrace a history of the large Benedictine monastery of Abingdon, from the date of its foundation, at an early period of Saxon history, to the accession of King Richard I. It is printed, for the first time, from two MSS. in the British Museum. The contents of the first volume show the steps by which this large and wealthy establishment, like others of its order, acquired the wide extent of lands and privileges of which its monks were deprived by Henry VIII. These title-deeds were granted for the most part by the Saxon kings, from Ina to Edward the Confessor. They illustrate not only the monastic, but also the general history of this kingdom, during these obscure and remote ages, and its gradual advances in civilization. To the local antiquary of Berkshire, Oxford, and the neighbouring counties, they will afford a large amount of interesting material.
