12mo. A curious and much esteemed work. This edition is extremely scarce.

+ Antiquite de la Nation et de la Langue des Celtes autrement appelez Gaulois (avec Table des mots.) Paul Pezron. Paris, 1703,8vo.

This learned author had it in contemplation to publish a complete work on the origin of nations, and more especially to trace and develope the origin of the ancient Celts ; but Matiniere, in his Critical and Geographical Dictionary under the article Celts, has given a most interesting letter from Pezron to the Abbe Nicaise, which throws much light on the antiquity of the Celts, and it was for the first time published in the said Dictionary after Pezron’s death. This work is particularly noticed, p. 416, Supplemental Observations.

+ Description of the Western Islands of Scotland, by M. Martin.

London, 1703.—12mo. This work contains, as expressed in the titlepage, a full account of the Western Isles, their situation, extent, soils, produce, &c. The ancient and modern government, religion, and customs of the inhabitants ; particularly of their Druids, heathen temples, monasteries, churches, chapels, antiquities, monuments, fotts, caves, and other curiosities of art and nature. Dr. Johnson’s father having put this work into his hand when a boy, was what first excited his curiosity to visit the Hebrides in 1773.

+ * The History of Scotland, by George Buchannan, originally written in Latin, has run through successive editions, in this and other countries, as well as his other miscellaneous works in prose and verse.

In this history the critics have done him the justice to say, u he has happily united the force and brevity of Sallust with the perspicuity and elegance of Livy.” His translation into Latm of the Psalms of David stands unequalled for its classical purity; and Dr. Robertson observes, ‘‘ the happy genius of Buchannan, equally formed to excel in prose and in verse, more various, more original, and more elegant than that almost of any other modern who writes in Latin, reflects, with regard to this particular, the greatest lustre on his country.” His works have been severally printed often, in various countries ;

an edition of them all collected together was printed at Edinb.

in 1704, in 2 vols. folio. This author flourished in the 16th century, and died at Edinb. in 1582, in the 76th year of his age.

An Armoric Grammar and Vocabulary, by Julian Maunoir, englished out of French by Mr. Williams. A brief Introduction to the Irish or Ancient Scottish Language. An Irish-English Dictionary. Ed. Lhuyd. Oxford, 1707, folio. This eminent antiquary died in July, 1709, and left, in MS. a Scottish or Irish-English Dictionary, which was proposed to have been published by subscription, in 1732, by David Malcolme, a minister of the Church of Scotland, with additions ; as also the Elements of the said Language, with necessary and useful information for propagating more effectually the English Language, and for promoting the know ledge of the Ancient Gaelic or Irish, and very many branches of useful and curious learning. Mr. Malcolme, not meeting with suitable encouragement, gave up his plan. Sir Thomas Seabright, of Beachwood, in Hertfordshire, purchased the numerous MSS. belonging to Mr. Lhuyd, after his death. They consisted of 40 vols. in folio, 10 in quarto, and above 100 smaller; which all relate to the Gaelic, Irish, and Welsh antiquities, and chiefly in those languages.

+ De Re diplomatica libri sex, in quibus quicquid ad veterum instrumentorum antiquitatem materiam scripturam et stilura, &c.
