SIR JOHN FROISSART

It is divided into fix books, of which the two fifft end with thefe words: " Here ends the firfl " (the fécond) book of this fécond volume of the " Chronicles of England, and confequently the " feventh (the^ eighth) of the four volumes par-Ci ciaulx." We read alfo at the aid of the fixth, " Here ends the fécond volume of the Chronicles "o f England." This MS. probably made part of four volumes of a compilation of a Hiftory of England, divided each into fix books ; fuch nearly as our Chronicles of St. Denys. The firft volume would have con. tained events anterior to Froiffart ; and as the fécond, which we have, includes an abridgement of his firft volume, we may prefume that the two following would, in like manner, have contained that of the three other volumes, and perhaps alfo the hiftory of the times pofterior to them. This abridgement, however, is the fame with that of La Chaux, which Sauvage has tjiade ufe of ; I difcover the marks by which he has pointed it out, with the exception of the firft leaf, which may have been loft fince that time.
