In some the signature d, consisting of eight leaves, is followed, as might be expected, by sign. e, consisting of a like number. Such is the case with the present copy.

I am in possession, however, of another, in which sign. d, of eight leaves, is succeeded by sign. dd, of four leaves before the commence. ment of sign, e. These last are the most complete, the other sort being imperfect. The omission having been

The chasm, or omission, will be found between the last line of d v recto. “Off large pas is of mesure bene," and the first line of d v verso, “He maid theme gret persuasioun," consisting of no less than 101 verses, besides titles of Chapters. As the present copy belonged to Mr. G. Chalmers, (from whom I obtained it in exchange) it is singular he should not have noticed it in the remarks and collations at the foot of the text in his edition. Perhaps he had not obtained this volume till after his own was printed. monument of this variation in the copies, I have thought it worth while to preserve one of each in my library.

Mem. To examine the 4to. edition of the same date and by the same printer, to ascertain whether the text is there given garbled or entire.

It is not impossible but that the omission above stated may have given rise to the severe remarks to be found at the end of the Copmanhoun (or Aberdeen) edition." MS.
