VOLUME III. THIS CONFITS of only 382 leaves of vellum, the firft of which IS blank v then follow the contents of all the 181 chapters on ten leaves and the firft page of the eleventh ; the text on 369 leaves : at the end, one blank. The portions of the text, each furnifhed with its catch-word, are: thirteen quaternions (104), one quinternion (10), 22 quaternions (176), one ternion (6), nine quaternions (72)* and five leaves : total, 373 leaves :. all accurately compared with Sauvage's edition, and nothing found wanting;, bjut by this collation I have difcovered, that the 368th leaf has been bound before the 367th. This volume has alfo had the misfortune of being purloined of four leaves in fucceflion,—and indeed of the fécond and fifth of the 13th. quaternion, or the 9Mh and 102d leaf of the text; of which cut-out leaves, the remains are ftill to be feen. My late uncle has marked this deteét merely with a flip of paper laid in : of this theft, I know no more. In this volume,, on the yet remaining 369 leaves of the text,, are extant one large and 87. fmaller drawings; in all, 3.8; which are varioufly coloured^ and exceedingly beautiful. On fome, Froiflart himfelf is delineated. The beginning of the volume, with the argument of the chapter,, is:.
