"A completely new edition has now been published of the most comprehensive Dictionary of Reference that has ever been produced in the English language. As a compilation of facts, dates, events-alphabetically arranged either singly or grouped together-the book is simply unparalleled. The next best work of the kind is Haydn's Dictionary of Dates'-Haydn's, however, being in no degree as comprehensive as Townsend's. A statement r accuracy of which is, easily enough, demonstrable. For-whereas Haydn's Dictionary in his latest (the 12t edition (published in 1866), there may be found 5,743 articles arranged alphabetically-in Townsend's new editio (the 2nd), published this year (1867), there are upwards of eleven thousand (11,045) articles, also arranged alphabeti cally. The edition, in effect, is so new that the book might more reasonably be called a new work altogether. It is a library in little. It is as a hive filled with honeycombs-each comb brimming with honey-each separate cel crammed to repletion. For any working man of letters, this book is at once a luxury and a necessity-a rede mecum of knowledge, so symmetrically pigeon-holed that one can put one's hand upon the instant upon almost any scrap of information one may chance to be in search of.

Dinaux, however, agrees with M. Quicherat in assigning the drawings to the sixteenth century; in which case they cannot have been made for Bullart, but must have been found by him already collected. He states that above each personage is the name, in writing bearing too evidently the character of the sixteenth century to be mistaken. place the draughtsman is conjectured to have been an Italian, because on two pages he has left five lines of Italian: elsewhere he is suggested to have been the Flemish artist Jerome Bos, because among the five painters whose heads are brought together, towards the end of the book, he alone is modestly introduced without any term of eulogy:

PORTFOLIO OF PORTRAITS AT ARRAS.
At the present time, when so much attention is directed to historical portraiture, probably many of the readers of "N. & Q." will be interested in the following particulars of a volume of drawings which is preserved in the public library of Arras, and which is thus described in the catalogue of that collection, compiled by M. Jules Quicherat :—
"944. 2o. Recueil des portraits historiques, in-folio mago Papier. Exécution du xvie siècle. Ce précieux recueil, fait vers l'an 1560, se compose d'une série de portraits exécutés à la mine de plomb ou à la sanguine, d'après des originaux peints, la plupart d'un très-beau caractère. Le plus ancien est Philippe de Valois; le plus moderne est celui de Charles IX. Nul doute que ces portraits n'aient été tirés du musée des Archiducs d'Autriche, comtes de Flandre. 304 pièces."
A fuller account of this volume, and a list of its contents, has been given by Mons. A. Dinaux of Valenciennes in his Archives Historiques et Littéraires, troisième série, 1852, iii. 149-169. writer appears to consider that the volume in question furnished the materials from which Isaac Bullart derived the portraits published in his Académie des Sciences et des Arts, contenant les vies
et les éloges historiques des hommes illustres de diverses nations, published in 1682, and for which the engravers Nicolas de Larmessin and Edmunde de Boulonois were employed. These artists executed for Bullart the considerable number of 249

These painters are followed by the historians Froissart, Monstrelet, and Commines; but the great bulk of the collection consists, as might be expected, of the sovereigns and nobility of Flanders.
I will now transcribe the inscriptions belonging to those portraits which relate to the history of England or Scotland: --

The notices of the knights errant who visited Scotland (mentioned under Nos. 255, 256, and 258) provoke one's curiosity, and suggest the inquiry whether any memorials of their feats are preserved in that country. Is it probable that their portraits were drawn in Scotland, together with that of the Egyptian (No. 22) who was successful in prescribing for the King of Scots? I would further inquire of our northern friends, what is remembered of their doughty champion Sandy Haliburton (No. 25), who slew his antagonist in fair field in the good town of Edinburgh, and has Scotland any.copy of his portrait ?

"THE SECRETS OF ANGLING," BY J. D. Sir Harris Nicolas, in his edition of Walton's Angler (1836, vol. ii. p. 408), examines the question of the authorship of the above rare book, and concludes by ascribing it to John Dennys, a younger son of Sir Walter Dennys, of the county of Gloucester, who espoused Agnes, daughter and heiress of Sir Robert Davers, or Danvers. There seems reason to doubt the accuracy of this deduction. I have been favoured by the Rev. H. N. Ellacombe, of Bitton, with a pedigree showing six descents from the above Sir Walter Dennys; and Mr. Ellacombe adds a suggestion that the real author of the poem was more probably Sir Walter's great-grandson, the John Dennys who was buried at Pucklechurch in 1609, four years, that is to say, previous to the publication of the volume. The pedigree is as follows:
Sir Walter Dennys
* John Dennys,
1 Hugh Dennys, died 1559.
** John Denny's, died 1609, buried at Pucklechurch.
Henry Dennys, son and heir.
John Dennys, eldest son and heir, died 1638.
John Dennys, owner of Bitton Farm; died 1660.
Fortune, widow of Wm. Kemys, of Newport, and dau, of Thos. Norton, of Bristol.
Katherine, dau. of Edw. Trye, of Hardwick, co. Gloucester; died 1583, at Pucklechurch.
Elianor, or Helena, dau. of Thos. Millet, co. Warwick.
Margaret, dau. of Sir George Speke, of White Lackington, co. Somerset.
Mary, dau. and coh. of Nat. Hill, of Hutton; died 1698, annis plena; buried at Pucklechurch.
No date is associated with Sir Walter Dennys, but on referring to a more detailed pedigree from William Dennys, "founded a guild in the year the same source, I find that his eldest son, Sir 1520;" we may therefore reasonably assign his birth to the latter part of the fifteenth century, or to the very beginning of the sixteenth. These presecond brother (author of the Secrets according to mises are borne out by the fact that John, his Sir Harris Nicolas), left a son, Hugh Dennys, who died in 1559, and at no immature age, since he was married and had four offspring. If, therefore, Sir Harris Nicolas's assumption be correct, we must ascribe the poem to the early part, or at the latest to the middle, of the sixteenth century, whereas its style and general character belong, apparently, to a later period. Collateral evidence on the side of Mr. Ellacombe's opinion is to be found in the fact that R. I. (Roger Jackson) in his dedication of the volume to Mr. John Harborne, of Tackley, does not throw the poem far back, in a posthumous sense, but merely says,
This poem being sent vnto me to be printed after the death of the author, who intended to have done it in his
life, but was preuented by death," &c. &c.
