coloured by hand, including an ancient view of the City of Waterford. Illuminated Charter-Roll of Waterford, Temp. Richard II.

Price to Subscribers, 203. ; Non-subscribers, 30s, *** Of the very limited impression proposed, more than 150 copies have already been subscribed for. Amongst the Corporation Muniments of the City of Water. ford is preserved an ancient Illuminated Roll, of great interest and beauty, comprising all the early Charters and Grants to the City of Waterford, from the time of Henry II. to Richard II. Full-length Portraits of each King adorn the margin, varying from eight to nine inches in length—some in armour and some in robes of state. In addition are Portraits of an Archbishop in full canonicals, of a Chancellor, and of many of the chief Burgesses

of the City of Waterford, as well as singularly curious Portraits of the Mayors of Dublin, Waterford, Limerick, and Cork, figured for the most part in the quaint bipartite costume of the second Richard's reign, peculiarities of that of Edward III. Altogether this ancient work of art is unique of its kind in Ireland, and deserves to be rescued from oblivion.
