TRANSAC

A few copies of this privately printed volume on sale, of which the Morning Post says: "All the drawings are capital, full of genuine fun, and the biographical sketch of the President, Lumpkin Queer. Esq., is in the style of the introductory chapter to Martin Chuzzlewit,' but a much cleverer performance. Still better is the President's address, the grave and plausibie absurdity of which is almost painfully laughable A paper on Some Peculiarities of the French Language is, with its delightful literal translation of How doth the little busy bee' (the irrepressible insect being rendered L'abeille peu industrieuse '), one of the very best burlesques we have ever read; a Retrospective Review of Juvenile Literature' is a perfect gem of fun and ingenuity. The book is a complete success."

The Atheneum says: "The book is not one to be read through steadily, but it will furnish a good deal of mirth if dipped into during leisure half-hours. Of the papers, Some Observations on Ignorance,' A Tour in Cornwall,' and the notes to Dandyados, a Tragedy,' are the best, the notes in this case being superior to the dramatic extravaganza which they illustrate."

Now, certainly to within the last few years, Worsborough Hall has continued in the possession of the direct descendants of this gentleman, Henry Edmonds, Esq. The Rev. Joseph Hunter, in his History of the Deanery of Doncaster, published in 1831, gives the genealogy of the family, notices the picturesque old hall, and says that an old cabinet belonging to Sir Thomas Herbert, and brought there by his widow, is still preserved; and he goes on-with that gentle humour which appears peculiar to topographers, from Pennant downwards-to say, that he has never heard that the MS. of the Icon has been found in a secret drawer within it.

Thomas Allen also, in his History of the County mentions the hall and the Edmonds family.

ORIGINAL MS. OF ΕΙΚΩΝ ΒΑΣΙΛΙΚΗ. Some time ago (3rd S. viii. 396) I ventured to ask a question as to the original MS. of the Icon mentioned by Sir Thomas Herbert. I still hold the opinion, that the inquiry after this MS. has been singularly neglected; so much so, as almost to give point to Mr. Hallam's sneering implication that it never had any real existence. That such a MS. did exist, and in a handwriting nearly resembling the king's, there can be no doubt; and it certainly is very strange, that, while so much inquiry has been made about the account of the Icon in Sir Thomas's narrative, no one seems to have thought of seeking for the MS. of the Icon itself.

We possess a series of facts which seem, at any rate, to encourage inquiry.

Wagstaffe says that the original MS. account of the last two years of King Charles I., written by Sir Thomas Herbert, and afterwards published, was in 1697 in the possession of his widow, who was "married to Henry Edmonds, Esquire, living in the town of Worsborough, in Yorkshire." It is, therefore, not unreasonable to suppose that such books and papers as Sir Thomas possessed at his death, among which appear to have been some given him by King Charles, were also in her hands; and hence it is not impossible but that the precious MS. of the Icôn may have been there also.

Is it too much to ask that some member of this family will inform us whether any such papers or books still exist-books given by the king would, doubtless, be preserved with great care; or whether anything was ever known in the family of such a manuscript? the account (called "Carolina Threnodia") of the Anthony Wood says that Sir Thomas sent him last two years of King Charles, about three years before his death. This might make us fancy that Sir Thomas distributed his MSS., &c., carelessly, if it was not clear from Wagstaffe's statementwhich describes the MS. as 66 a book in folio, well bound, fairly written, and consisting of 83 pages," and which is attested by five clergymen and two esquires, who themselves saw the book at Worsborough-that it must have been a copy only which was sent to Wood. Sir Thomas deposited papers in more than one public library, viz. the Bodleian, and that belonging to the cathedral at York (not the action of a careless man); and though it is not likely that the MS. of the Icon was among these, yet a search even here, by some one on the spot, might not be entirely a useless waste of time.

66

It is no doubt quite possible that this precious MS. may have gone astray, with those "short notes of occurrences," which Sir Thomas says are either lost or so mislaid in this long interval of time, and several removes of my family, that at present I cannot find them;" and the fact that he omits to state, that he actually possessed the MS. at the time he wrote his narrative, may strengthen this supposition. I am also unacquainted with the exact circumstances of the publication of his own MS., independently of Wood, in 1702; and cannot, therefore, say whether the

circumstances which led to it were such as would be likely to bring to light, or to cause the dispersion of other MSS.; but I think we have here a series of interesting and important facts. We have a positive assertion of Sir Thomas, that he possessed this MS.; we have the certainty that books
