This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1919 edition. Excerpt: ...'Dodridge on Nobility' is evidently Sir John Doddridge's 'Honor's Pedigree'; published at London in 1652. 'Sir Harris Nicholas's book on Knighthood, ' which Pearsall censures so severely, is the "History of the Orders of Knighthood," published in 1841-2. 'The costumes', for which Mr. Ellacombe is asked to get subscribers, is Hefner-Alteneck's "Trachten des Christlichen Mittelalters" which appeared from 1840 to 1854. The 'Motet Society' was founded in 1841, chiefly owing to William Dyce, R. A. Its object was to print ancient church music adapted to English words and the musical editing was done by Dr. Rimbault. Three parts appeared, after which the publication stopped. The work is not of much value and its accuracy is quite unreliable. In the postscript, reference is made to the law-books of Glanvil and Britton. The first is the "Tractatus de Legibus" of Ranulphus de Glanvilla, the earliest edition of which is ascribed to 1555. Britton on the Laws of England appeared in 1540. The Paper 'On the Arms of Our Saviour' which Pearsall offered to the Society of Antiquaries, had a rather curious history. It was not accepted by the Society and seems to have been sent to the editor of the Gentleman's Magazine where it remained until 1860, in the December number of which year it was printed as 'Coat Armour ascribed to Our Saviour', but without the author's name, which appears to have been lost or mislaid. The identification of the article with Pearsall's paper has only been made recently. IX CARLSRUHE, 14 Nov. 1841. Dear Ellacombe: My memory is so bad that I cannot remember whether more
