al. 2. fo. me occidet me etc._

HYSTORIE SCOLASTICE

A. Incipit in 2. folio. secunda die. B. inci't. in 2. fo. emperio sane formatis. ligatus. C. inci't. in 2. fo. et celumque celi.

The words printed in Italics are added by a more recent hand. Under the head of "Hystorie Scolastice" are doubtless intended the copies which the Library possessed of the celebrated _Historia Scholastica_, or abridgement of Scripture history by Peter Comestor.

From the foregoing specimen, I think your readers will agree with me that a Catalogue of such antiquity and interest is well worthy of publication.

But we have another ancient Catalogue of a monastic library equally curious, and even more important from its magnitude, and the numerous works it contains on English history, early romances, &c. I remain, &c.
