ARNOLDE'S CHRONICLE. In this boke is conteined

ye names of the baylyfs Custose mayers and sherets of ye cyte of london from the tyme of Kynge Richard the fyrst & also the artycles of ye Chartour & lybartyes of the same Cyte. And of the chartour and lybartyes of England, with other dyuers maters good and necessary for euery cytezen to vnderstond and knowe. Wiche ben shewed in chapyters aftyr the

fourme of this kalendyr folowynge. This Title is at the head of the Kalendar, or Table of Contents,

which is printed in double columns, as is also the greater part of the volume.

This Introductory Portion contains signatures A2, 3, 4, forming

3 leaves, or 6 pages, not numerically paged.—The Work then begins as follows: “ The Names of the Baylyfs, Custos, Mayres and Serefs of cyte of London from the tyme of Kynge Rycharde yo fyrst called Cure de Lyon, whiche was crowned the iii day of Septembre, the yere of our lorde god xi.C.Ixxxix,'

[Bi-C 4] 12 leaves, or 23 printed pages. This is succeeded by a second Index, in double columns, be

ginning with “ l'he artycles of ye charter and liberties of the Cite of lodon,” (being 112) in eleven columns, and ending on the upper part of the twelfth ; after which follow the “

copy of the hole Charter of London of the furst graunt,” together with the remaining Articles, to the end of the volume, (as given at length by Oldys in the “ British Librarian,” forming pages 23-5,) signatures B l-U 5, 120 leaves, or 239 printed pages, in double columns, the last leaf ending thus : “ And whê this was done it was decreed by the sayde arbytrours that everyche of my lordys of gloucester, & of wynchester sholde take enthyr other by the hand in presence of the kynge and al the parlement in signū and tokyn of good loue and accorde

which was done." Printed in black letter, and not numerically paged, without

Printer's name, or date when printed. Folio. N. B. “ The First Edition of this Chronicle was undoubtedly printed at Antwerp by John Doesborowe, without particular indication of date, place, or printer's name; but the two latter are sufficiently evident from a comparison with some other books printed by the same person, and more particularly with the very curious life of Virgil the Necromancer, the History of the Parson of Kalenborowe, the Letter sent from the Great Turk to the Pope of Rome, and a Grammatical Treatise, all undoubtedly printed by Doesborowe, in the same type and manner. It is probable that Arnold, when residing in Flanders on his mercantile concerns, became acquainted with this Printer, who had been employed by other Englishmen. This must have happened about the beginning of the sixteenth century, the last Sheriffs in Arnold's list, in his First Edition, being Henry Keble and Nicolas Nynes, in the 18th of King Henry VII. 1502; in which year, or soon afterwards, the book must have been printed.

The Second Edition was also published without date, place, or printer's name; but there is no manner of doubt that it

came from the press of Peter Treveris; and as the List of She• riffs is continued to the 11th of Henry VIII. about the year

[ocr errors]

1520 or 1521, when Arnold might still be living. From the mode of printing particular words in this Edition, there is reason for supposing that no intermediate one had been published. A Third has indeed been alluded to by the learned Compiler of the Catalogue of Lord Oxford's printed books; and Mr. Ames speaks of a Quarto Edition, with Wood Cuts, which his Conti-. nuator, the praiseworthy and industrious Herbert, says was only a fragment in Mr. Tutet's possession. This was purchased at the latter gentleman's sale for His Majesty's Library, and will probably, whenever it is inspected, turn out to be nothing more than a clipped copy of Treveris's edition, the large and ornamented capital letters having been, as it is conceived, rather inaccurately denominated Wood Cuts.” See Advertisement, prefixed to the reprinted Edition in Quarto in 1811.
