FREDERICK WARNE & CO.,
GLOBE ATLAS of EUROPE.
Uniform in size with Macmillan's Globe Series, containing Forty-eight coloured Maps, Plans of London and Paris, and a copious Index, strongly bound in half morocco, with flexible back, price 98.
In a few days. NOTICE. This ATLAS includes all the Countries of Europe in a series of Forty-eight Maps, drawn on the same scale, with an Alphabetical Index to the situation of more than 10,000 places; and the reation of the various Maps and Countries to each other is defined in a general Key-Map. The volume is small enough for a traveller's wallet, or for a place on the writing table.
The identity of scale in all the Maps facilitates the comparison of extent and distance, and conveys a just impression of the magnitude of different countries. The size suffices to show the Provincial Divisions, the Railways and Main Roads, the Principal Rivers and Mountain Ranges. As a book it can be opened without the inconvenience which attends the use of a folding Map.
PLANS OF LONDON and PARIS [are added, on scales sufficiently enlarged to designate the streets and public buildings..

"Mr. Hozier added to the knowledge of military operations, and of languages, which he had proved himself to possess, a ready and skilful pen, and excellent faculties of observation and description .....

NOTES AND QUERIES, June 22.
"We have on more than one occasion found, in the first edition of the Manual of Dates,' information which we have sought for in vain in other quarters. The new edition will be found more complete, and consequently more useful, even in an increased proportion to its increased size. The Manual of Dates' is clearly destined to take a prominent place among our most useful books of reference."

TWEENE THE HOWERS OF ONE & TWO IN YE AFTER-
Aug. the 20th my daughter Elizabeth dyed and was
1663. Dec. 2. Daughter Eliz. dyed & was buryed the 4th
1665. Feb. 14. Daughter Susanne borne betwixt
of All Hallows, Bread Street: "The xxth daye of De-
1668. Jul. 15th my deare and loveing wife Anne Duke departed this life in child bedd imediately after shee was delivered of a sonne dead borne. Duke, it appears, was for some time tutor to the Duke of Richmond, the son of Charles II. by the Duchess of Portsmouth. The poet is known to have enjoyed the friendship and praises of Dryden, Waller, Otway, Lee, Creech, and other contemporary wits of his day, and seems to have been a polite and accomplished scholar, and a respectable, though not a great poet. His poems were printed by Tonson in a volume with those of the Earl of Roscommon in 1717, 8vo.
In 1710 Duke was presented by Dr. Trelawney, Bishop of Winchester, to the wealthy living of Witney, in Oxfordshire, which he enjoyed but for a few months. On Feb. 10, 1710-11, having returned from an entertainment, he retired to bed in apparent health, but the next morning was found a corpse. His death is thus noticed by Dean Swift:
"Dr. Duke died suddenly two or three nights ago; he was one of the wits when we were children, but turned parson, and left it, and never writ farther than a prologue or recommendatory copy of verses. He had a fine living given him by the Bishop of Winchester about three months ago: he got his living suddenly, and he got his dying so too."-Swift's Journal to Stella, Feb. 14, 1711. Again on Feb. 16, he says, " Atterbury and Prior went to bury poor Dr. Duke."
"There is a pleasure in poetic pains, Which only poets know. The shifts and turns, The expedients and inventions multiform To which the mind resorts, in chase of terms, Though apt, yet coy, and difficult to win," &c. So writes Cowper in "The Task," and its truth will be recognised by every one who has ever made verses. It is, however, not always a "pleasure," and it is often a needless expense of time; and as it is very generally a rime that is given chase to, much labour might, I think, be saved by the use of a riming dictionary. Byron, I believe, always used one; and what may appear strange, my late friend Rossetti, though actually an improvisatore, always had one by him when writing verses. On the other hand, Thomas Hood told me that he had often had to go through the dictionary from end to end in search of a word; and I remember when Crofton Croker and I were writing the second volume of The Irish Fairy Legends, that when I called on him one evening he read to me what he had written of his ballad, "The Lord of Dunkerron," and he stopped at the last stanza without giving the final word, which I supplied at once. "By," said he, slapping the table, "I have been hunting for that very word these last two hours." All this labour might
have been saved by a riming dictionary. There are cases, however, where it is rather a synonym that is wanted. In one of Moore's Irish melodies we meet with
"You may break, you may ruin the vase if you will;" and it is evident that he saw clearly that “ruin" was not the proper term, yet it was not till, I believe, the last edition which he lived to publish that he hit on the more appropriate term "shatter."
Campbell, in his "Hohenlinden," was guilty of what we may perhaps term the puerility of ending every stanza with a trissyllable, as rapidly, scenery, &c., in which the last syllables were to
rime. But the last stanza is
"Few, few shall part where many meet!
Here there is no rime, and as we may learn from his friend Redding, it seems to have been a continual source of trouble to the poet, yet how simple was the remedy! He had only to transpose, and read
"A soldier's sepulchre shall be,"
and there would have been rime, cadence, everything but the aforesaid puerility. It is probable, however, that this may never have occurred either to himself or his friend Redding. Still I am not satisfied with "sepulchre ;" for it does not express the poet's idea, which was that every soldier should lie dead and covered with snow on the spot where he had stood, and it should have been"A soldier's resting-place shall be."
Amongst a large collection of works connected with the county, I have The Parochial History of Cornwall, by William Hals, one of the rarest of topographical works. This fragment of his intended history is a portion of the second part, and comprises the account of seventy-two parishes, from Advent to part of Helston inclusive, in 160 folio pages.
It was published by Andrew Brice, a printer at Exeter, in 1750, and contains ten numbers only, when the work dropped from want of encouragement or some other reason. Hals first brought down his history to 1702, but continued it to 1736, and died in 1739, long before the well-known epigram of "Here lies poor Fred." Now, whatever merit may be due to this composition, a reference to Hals will deprive it of the stamp of originality, unless we can assume that the author was really unacquainted with Hals's epigram, and that it is therefore simply a question of singular unanimity of thought between two persons of distant times and places,
