OXFORD.

Bodleian, No. 264.

French.

This is bound up with the celebrated Alexander MS. It is a beautiful work, embellished with thirty-eight miniatures, some of which are exquisite, e.g., the Frontispiece, a large piece of about 9-1/2 in., forming a sort of condensed view of the Field of Travel; a large part of it occupied by VENICE, of which our cut (The Piazzetta) in vol. i., p. 18, Introduction, is an extract. Another fine work (f. 220) represents the three Polos presenting the Pope's Letter to the Khan. The embroidered hands on the Khan's robe form an inscription, in which is legible "Johannes me facit." This Mr. Coxe attributes to John of Cologne, a known artist of the 14th century. He considers the MS. to be of about 1380. The Alexander is dated 1338, and its illuminations as finished in 1344 by Jehan de Gruse. [See supra, p. 528, note.]

A comparison of a good many readings, as well as of the point where the version breaks off, and the words: "Explicii la Livre nommé du Gerunt Gann de la Graunt Cité de Cambaluc, Dieux ayda Amien," indicate that this MS. is of the same type as Pauthier's C (No. 20 in this List) and the Bern. MS. (No 63).

The name given in the colophon as above has caused the work to be entered in the old Printed Catalogue under a wrong title. Hence the MS., as one of Marco Polo, has been overlooked.

This is the most precious of all MSS. of Polo. It has been fully spoken

of (vol. i., Int., The Old French Text) under the name of the

Geographic Text or (G.T.), because it was printed by the

Société de Géographie in 1824. [See I, p. 83]

A large 4to of thick parchment; 112 ff.; very clearly though not very

neatly written in Gothic text.-14th century.

A facsimile of this MS. has been made this year (1902) at Karlsruhe.

Then follows.

1° Marco Polo: "Cy apres commence le liure de Marc Paule des merveilles daise la grant et dinde la maiour et mineur Et des diuerses regions du monde."-Begins: "Pour sauoir la pure verite de diuerses regions du monde. Si prenez ce liure cy et le faictes lire. Si y trouuerez les grandismes merueilles qui y sont escriptes…."

Ends (Fol. 96 verso): "Et a tant fine messire marc pol son liure de la diuision du monde et des merueilles dicelluy."

Of the 266 histoires or miniatures in this splendid book, 84 belong to the story of Polo. We have given engravings of several of them. Its value is estimated in the catalogue of the Library of the Duc de Berry in 1416 (quoted by Pauthier) at 125 livres, equivalent (if parisis) to about 115_l._ This is Pauthier's MS. B. See vol. i., Int., Various Types of the Text.

"Ci commencement les rebriches de cest Livre qui est appelez le

Deuisement du Monde, lequel je Gringoires contrefais du Livre de Messire

Marc Pol le meilleur citoien de Venisse creant Crist."

At the beginning of the Text is a coarse drawing of Kúblái on his bretesche, carried by four elephants (vol. i., p. 337); and after the prologue another apparently representing the Princess Aijaruc wrestling with her wooer (vol. ii. p. 465).

This is Pauthier's MS. A. (vol. i, Int., Various Types of the Text), and also was in the Duc de Berry's Library, values at 6 livres 5 sols. [Second half of the 14th cent.].

PARIS

Bib. nationale, Fr. nonv. acq. 1880

French.

This is a copy of the time of King Louis XII., made apparently for Admiral Louis Malet de Graville, Governor of Honfleur, who died in 1516; it bears the arms of the Urfé family; it is at times modernized, but less is suppressed in it than in MSS. 5631 and 2810. The MS. ends: "Et sa auchuns disdaine qui a lui …" about the middle of ch. cxcix of Pauthier's ed., p. 738, line 4. These are also the last words of the Stockholm MS. of which it is a copy.

Purchased in 1870.

Many liberties taken with the text, and much abridged and disarranged. Thus, after the Prologue it proceeds: "Al nome di Dio io Marcho Polo Veneziano racconterò tutte le maravigliose chose ch'io trovai e vidi, etc. etc." It ends the chapter on Russia with the following impertinence: "E se volete sapere più innanzi dimandatene un altro ch'io Marcho Polo non cercai più avanti." The Khalif is called Largaliffe; Reobarles, Reubarbe, with a marginal note in an old hand, "Reubarbe città di Persia, donde viene il reubarbero herba medicinale."

It is in very beautiful condition, very clearly written on parchment, with all the initials filled up in gold and colours, and with numerous flowered scrolls.

It belonged to Bongars, whose autograph is on it: "Bongars-l'a de la
