MONUMENTA TYPOGRAPHICA. A Catalogue of Books produced by the earliest typographers in all countries, arranged so as to illustrate the history of the origin and development of the Art of Printing; as well as the publications of the famous Aldine, Giunta, and Elzevir Presses; preceded by some, examples of

pre-typographical Printing. I. XYLOGRAPHY, BLOCKBOOKS; and Early Metal Engravings with

Inscriptions.

Xylography,-a term denoting that phase of wood-engraving in which certain inscriptions or portions of text were cut upon the block in addition to the pictorial design,-must have come into existence about the end of the fourteenth century. It seems to have reached its most flourishing period about the year 1450, and to have been chiefly cultivated in the Rhine-lands. It had probably a continued existence in Germany and Holland till near 1480: we find a belated Italian specimen in 1509.

Gravures en bois des anciens Maitres allemands tirées des planches originales recueillies par Jean Albert de Derschau, avec un discours sur la nature et l'histoire de la Gravure en bois, 3 parts in 1 vol. imp. folio, 213 engravings, some very large and folded, printed from the original blocks of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries; hf. red morocco extra, £16. 168

Gotha, 1808-16 An incomparably precious collection, including several xylographic impressions and rude engravings which belong to the very beginning of the fifteenth century; and ranging onward to the finest achievements of the gre artists of the sixteenth century. As all these are from the original wood blocks, Derschau's collection must rank infinitely higher than all the books of modern facsimiles or imitatione.
