Γη the iîngle national library there are upwards of thirty volumes in folio, which contain feparately fome one óf the four books into which this Hiflory is divided. The numbers 6760, 8317, 8318, 8319» 8320,. 83247 833172, 8332, 8334, 8335 and 36 joined together, 8334 ; and the numbers of the manufcripts of Colbert, united with thofe of the nation, r5 , 85, and 231, include the firil volume. The numbers 8321, 833° 8333 8337, and 8338, added together with thofe of Colbert, 16, and 86, compofe the fécond volume. The numbers 8325, 8328, 8337, and 8338, added to thofe of Colbert, 87, and 232, the third volume. The numbers 8329, 8331, 8341, «8344» added together, and that of Coîbert, 17, compofe the fourth volume. I ihould extend this EfTay to too great a length if I were to defcribe the form, the age, the titles, the omtffions, or imperfections, and other Angularities, which diftinguiih thefe manufcripts. In regard to other and more effential differences, I ihall fay in general, that the greater part confili in tranfpofitions of fome articles, in changes, additions or retrenchments of words, in omiffions fometimes confiderable ; abbreviations of feveral chapters, or compreflion of many events into a narrow compafs ; vague tranfitions, ufelefs recapitulations of the foregoing chapters; certain modes of phrafeology, which, like formulas, are repeated in every page ; and fome interpolations of the copyifts, which, ferving only to fwell out the volume, have been wifely curtailed by Sauvage in his printed edi2 tion.
