Under Shelley is the original first issue of St. Irvyne,' a perfect copy, wholly uncut, Stockdale, 1811, 657., Space does not permit us to quote further; this is only an indication of the many choice items. At the end of the Catalogue Linton, and it is believed that they are all unare a number of letters addressed to Mrs. Lynn published, including a series of 47 from Landor, 1857-60. These are full of affection; he likens his own case to that of King Lear, and seems to have considered Mrs. Linton as his Cordelia. "Nothing on earth is so precious to me as your affection." In many he bewails his enforced exile, and pathetically refers to the loss of his home, his pictures, and specially his books; he mentions the Brownings, his Dry Sticks,' &c., and says: "I am in rags, I have not laid out 40 shillings on clothing in 4 years." There are eighteen long letters of Swinburne's. Herbert Spencer writes: "I do not think you are altogether a good Grundyometer, for you are not in half-sufficient sympathy with Mrs. Grundy." Besides the Lynn Linton letters there are autographs of Byron, Burns, and others. Under Burns is the original MS. of The Twa Herds,' 3 pages, folio, 250.

The list of Tracts, Pamphlets, and Broadsides issued by Mr. A. Russell Smith in his Sixty-Second Catalogue is such as Macaulay would have delighted in; they range from 1510 to 1808. We can purchase for 58. The Mournfull Cryes of many Thousand Poore Tradesmen,' who in 1650 were ready to Famish through Decay of Trade." A unique Waltonian_document is the printed will of John Donne the Yonger, 1662, in which he leaves his father's MSS. to Izaak Walton; the price for this is 51. 58. There is the rejoinder of Luther to the Assertion of the Seven Sacraments,' Wittemberg, 1522, 61. 68. We find a 'Search after Claret,' 1691, 17. 18. This mentions all the important taverns throughout London visited. Under Lady Hamilton is a collection of tracts by Dr. James Graham, of the Temple of Health, Adelphi and Pall Mall. The Catalogue contains 1,400 items, and they are all well arranged chronologically.

Messrs. Sotheran send their last two Prices Current, Nos. 683 and 684. The former contains a number of Ackermann's publications, first and early editions, important works under Americana, Architecture, and Fine Bindings. In a long list under Cruikshank occurs in its original boards The Humourist,' Robins, 351. There are first editions of Dickens, and French illustrated books of the eighteenth century. Under "A Wonderful Alice" is a large-paper copy of Rackham's edition of Alice in Wonderland,' extended to 4 vols. by the addition of 324 extra illustrations, bound in blue

Price Current 684 contains the most complete set yet offered for sale of Gould's natural history works, including the Birds of Paradise,' by Dr. Bowdler Sharpe. The price of the 50 vols. is 6301. This item naturally eclipses the remaining entries, but there are many other noteworthy lots.

The Catalogue of Mr. Albert Sutton of Manchester contains a set of the Chetham Society's Publications, 1840-1906, 241.; The English Emersons,' 18 sheet pedigrees, 1898, 12s. 6d.; St. John Hope's 'Stall Plates of the Knights of the Garter,' 21. 178. 6d.; Shaw's 'Manchester, Old and New,' 3 vols., 17. 18.; Hartshorne's 'Old English Glasses,' folio, 21.; a complete set of Punch, 1841-1905, 227. 10s.; Baines's Lancaster,' 2 vols., 4to., 1868, 17. 18.; and Bamford's 'Life of a Radical,' 2 vols., 58. There are works relating to Lancashire. We would suggest to Mr. Sutton the desirability of numbering his catalogues.
