Plura de nomine Eevaxeipiu congessit Villoisonius, eumque circa sæculum XII vixisse conjicit; nonnulla etiam de hoc grammatico, cujus scholia in Codice Mos. cuensi leguntur, attigit Heynius;} at neuter ad Valckenarii interrogationen apte respondit, Aptissime vero respondisse judico Calusium in suis ineditis adversariis monentem, non alium esse a Michaële Senacheribo, Nicæno, rhetoricam et poesin publice profitente, ad quem epistola data ab Imperatore Theodoro Duca Lascaris servatur in celeberrimo codice Casinensi fol. 10.4 Imo Calusius in codice Casinensi, quem tractaverat, legebat_Levay.mpelle, namque in illius ætatis libris forma elementi B ad illam si accedit.

But leaving this portion of the volume, which contains also the Rabbinical Mss. to those more competent to handle them, we pass on to the 2d part; and the first work, on which the professor enlarges, is Ciceronis Orationes, C. Sweynheym et A. Pannartz fol. Romæ 1471, and he observes, that Fabricius is wrong in asserting that it contains all the orations, as those Pro Marcello et pro Deiotaro are wanting.

No. 8 and 14 are, Homeri opera Gr. fol. Florentiæ 1488, and, Luciani opera Gr. fol. Florentiæ 1496; on which latter work he observes, that of 3 copies in this library two are mutilated in the tracts de morte Peregrini and Philopatris ; and that the signatures yy and xx should each comprise 8 leaves. These defects arise from this portion of Lucian having been condemned in the Index librorum a concilio Tridentino prohibitorum.

No. 15 is θησαυρός. Κέρας Αμαλθείας, και Κήποι 'Αδώνιδος. Thesaurus Cornucopiæ, et Horti Adonidis, folio, Venetiis 1496. This rare and splendid volume appears from the professor's account to have been much neglected. Many

pieces at least have been printed by modern scholars as inedita, which had already been made public in this volume. He regets that Koen, the acute editor of Gregorius Corinthius, as well as Bast, and Schæfer, have omitted to collate the Aldine text: “tertum enim (he continues pag. 32) Cornucopia ab Editionibus differre, atque modo cum Codice Vaticano, modo cum exemplmibus Parisinis facere, interdum etiam inauditas exhibere lectiones, ipse animadverti, exemplisque confirmare jutut.

In fact, to use the professor's words, philologists seem to be very far from having gathered the flowers of these gardens. Professor Peyron, being now in the company of grammarians, produces an inedited fragment of Ælius. Herodianus ex cod. Taurinensi c. i. 25. folio 73 verso. The remainder of the article is taken up with remarks on the opuscula Grammaticorum edited by Hermann, viz. Fragmenta Lexici Græci and Libellus de constructione verborum.

The number of articles described in this part of the work are 25.

From page 41 to 56 is filled with an account of the

Rabbinical books, which, however, we must pass “ insalutatos," after stating that the works Aben-Ezræ, Kimchii, Nachmanidis, Rascii, Maimonidis, ben Gerson, Mosis Kotzensis, Azariæ de-Rossii, Manassis ben Israël, have been added to the library by the liberality of the Abbé. Professor Peyron's remarks on them arise from a comparison of the volumes with the accounts given by Wolf and De-Rossi.

We now enter on the fourth and last part, where our author, after some introductory observations, and the notice of some volumes “en masse,” makes his first remarks

lished, the editor says, In Electra nostrum cum editionis Principis (Florentiæ sub finem sæculi xv a Jano Lascari curata) contextu contulimus. But the 1st edition of the Electra appears (see p. cxxvi of the same edition) to have been published by P. Victorinus, 8vo. Romæ or Florentiæ 1545. Some other play or edition must therefore be substituted.

As most of the copies of the early printed volumes in this library are defective, the professor seems to rejoice in a Eustathius, which he describes as Exemplar integerrimum, nullaque labe affectum, We add the prices this work bas fetched at various celebrated book-anctions : at Bridges', 101.58.; Heath's, 681.58.; Porson's, 551.; Randolph's, 301. 9s.; Roxburghe, 421.; and at Willet's, 581. 168.

The text of Orpheus in this edition agrees in the Argonautics with the Juntine 1519; in the Hymns with the Aldine. But we notice this volume as our author has given some inedited additional lines, from a Ms. in the Ambrosian library, some var. lect. from the same Ms., and some inedited fragments of Proclus on the Cratylus of Plato from 3 Mss. in the Turin library, No. 132, 205, 258.

From the “ scholia" of Proclus we make three extracts (p. 70-1.)

This article contains various readings on the Phædrus “ex Hermia Philosophi commentario inedito in Cod. Taurinensi, c. v. 23."

We must in concluding state that we have passed over many notices in which Panzer is supplied, even Fabricius corrected, or collations of Mss. given; and it contributes not a little to the value of the work that the author has actually seen the books he describes. It is, in fact, to such writers, who improve the opportunities afforded them, that bibliography owes very great obligations on the score of accuracy, and certain information as to the contents, size, dates, &c. of the volumes produced during the earlier stages of printing.
