** This is one of the very rarest and most curious books in Mr. Heber's Library. It consists of Tales, Theatrical Representations, and Poems, in the Macaronick, Piedmontese and French Languages. The only Bibliographical accounts to be found of it have been taken by De Bure and Brunet, (see Article Macharronea) from imperfect copies, wanting the Title, Date, &c. The first fourteen pieces in this volume have the same number of leaves as the copy collated by De Bure, with following exceptions. The first in this contains nineleaves and seven verses on the tenth, instead of seven leaves and seven verses on the tenth, as stated by De Bure. The second contains seventeen leaves and a half instead of seven and
The thirteenth has four and a half instead of
two leaves. This copy also contains two leaves of the
Register of Contents instead of one. This second leaf
contains the Table of nineteen additional and hitherto
unknown pieces, a list of which is here given.

Milan. Ditz que devoit pronuncier une pucelle d’Ast au

The supposition of an edition of 1496 is quite erro-
neous. From the description of the last piece in the
La Valliere and Gaignat Libraries, it was concluded by
De Bure and Brunet, that it could not have been printed
An edition of the first eleven pieces only was
printed in 1601. This unique copy was obtained from
Italy by Messrs. Payne and Foss, and sold by them to Mr.

knowledge UNIQUE, not in Ames.. « The Parlament

1569. A RECANTATION OF FAMOUS PASQUIN OF Rone,
IN VERSE, Imprinted by John Daye, 1570.
In the British Bibliographer, IĮ. 288, is some
account of these extremely curious and interesting Tracts,
but the author of the article has contrived to omit the
most singular part of the information they contain, to-
gether with the notices of Miles Huggard, John Availe,
and of the flight of the three Heywoods, old John, Elis
and Jasper, to Louvaine on the establishment of Pro-
testantism in England. The second Tract shews that
John Heywood the Father was alive in 1570, a fact stated
in no other extant authority. The inention of Crawley
the Printer and Preacher, is also remarkable. Both
Tracts have a great deal of humour as well as coarse-
ness, and were probably written by the same author, R.
W., who puts his initials only to the last, having written
the first under the assumed name of Lemeke Avale, as if
he were some relation to John Availe, whose actions are

*** “ For mention of this scarce little Book, I have
in vain consulted Herbert's Ames and the Catalogues of
West, Fletewood, Ratcliffe, Wright, Pearson, Croft and
others. Mr. Haslewood ascribes this little Poem to
Barnaby Googe, in which opinion he is confirmed by Sir
E. Brydges. Having overlooked the present copy in
Dr. Farmer's Catalogue, he erroneously supposes Lord
Spencer's to be the only one hitherto discovered. See
