Tfyt ©otagc ana JCrabafle of £tr 3SuI)n flSaunUebtllC, ISltt., which treateth of the WAY to HIERUSALEM; and of MARVAYI.ES of YNDE, with other ILANDS and COUNTRYES: reprinted from the Edition of A. D. 1725, from a MS. in the Cottonian Library, and collated with seven MSS. and old printed Editions, with an Introduction, additional Notes, and a Glossary, by J. 0. Halliwell, Esq., F. S. A., F.R.A.S., pp. xii, 325. London, 1839. With a frontispiece title, vignette, and 70 facsimiles of the old and grotesque wood-cuts, from the earlier editions and MSS. in the British Museum.

It is somewhat remarkable that these Travailes do not exist in any of the Collections except that of Hakluyt, where the Latin Version only is given. Of the printed English text, only one edition possesses the least value, the others being mere chapbooks, or abridgments of the worst kind, omitting the really valuable portion, retaining the miracles, and altering the language. All the editions are so scarce as to be found only in some few Public Libraries; the publication of a new one has, therefore, been often contemplated, but from various causes, a century has elapsed between the appearance of that of 1725 and the one which has given rise to this notice.

"Unfortunately for the curious inquirer into the real state of geographical and historical knowledge during the middle ages, comparatively little remains of the works of the men, thus, as it were, raised up by the hand of Providence to rekindle and transmit the lamp of ancient learning. Of many, we only know, that such things were; and most of those which have survived, exist only in scattered portions, in the form of extracts and abridgments.

The few accounts of the wanderings of travellers which appeared during the early periods of European literature, partake, of course, very strongly of the motives which incited these undertakings; and are always strongly tinctured by the peculiar circumstances of the artificial state of society under which they were accomplished and recorded. The spirit which animated the breasts of most, was one of ardent religious feeling, partial, bigoted, and selfsufficient. The traveller set out as a pilgrim, a merchant, or an adventurer, with little or no previous preparation, without observation or knowledge, either of the earth, or of those who were upon the face of it, ready in every thing to hear and see wonders, and to record the marvellous reports of others, where the subject did not fall within his own inspection. He pretended to none of the qualifications which would facilitate his inquiries, enable him to judge correctly, or describe with fidelity. His mind was, at the outset of his journey, full of romantic tales, and idle fables, which he had never learned to distinguish from historic truth, and he came back with magnified impressions of all he saw, and credulous belief of all he was told. Thus provided, he compiled his narrative from recollection, for the amusement and instruction of those who relished only miraculous legends, and would have been impatient of the obtrusion of the uninteresting details of statistical observation, or scientific views of man or nature. Defective as they may be, these publications at all events excited curiosity, if they could not gratify rational inquiry. Traveller upon traveller, in rapid succession, visited foreign climes; commercial advantages were noticed, and the spirit of enterprize^which they aroused, created a demand for similar information. Of all these travellers, Mandeville is by far the most likely to enjoy permanent reputation, at least with English readers, when we consider that his language is exceedingly curious, as illustrating the progress of the English tongue in, as is supposed, its ' earliest prose work.' The position he occupies is honourable throughout, both to himself and to his country, for he every where maintains the character of a gentleman, a gallant soldier, and devout but candid Christian, journeying in upright intention, and complete independence, ' whither he listeth,' to gratify his curiosity and thirst for information. Mandeville's book is, in several points of view, a peculiarly interesting work. In the first place, no book can

be without its value, which narrates a visit to the land

• Where saints did live and die,'

by an intelligent traveller, of devout, chivalric feelings, nearly five hundred years ago, when religious enthusiasm still glowed with its full summer heat in the breast of the European i when the nations of the West had scarcely dispersed those armies which had long hung like clouds over the rival fortunes of the East; when the thunders of the Vatican were still rolling against the Paynim hosts, the usurpers (as they were called) of the holy Jerusalem and the sepulchres of the saints; when all Christendom dwelt with devout rapture on the recollection of visits to those spots where Heaven itself had deigned to hold immediate converse with earth. Every spot was, to a sincere believer like Mandeville, truly 'holy ground.'

Around him on every hand, were the living footsteps of the Divine Presence. The very rocks seemed still to lament over the saints whose martyrdom they had witnessed. Here were the infant scenes of the human race, the dwelling place of primeval innocence, the abodes of the patriarchs, the prophets, and the kings of Israel. The whole face of the country; the wild desert, with its green spots thinly scattered, like islands for the repose of the weary traveller; the Dead Sea; the sacred plains of Egypt; the Nile; the rivers of Paradise; the wild romantic mode of life of the tribes that scoured over the face of the country; all combined to awaken associations of the deepest and most reverential order. The voice which echoes to us from such scenes as these, viewed with the feelings which agitated the bosom of a traveller like Mandeville, is calculated even yet to awaken some of the most powerful emotions of the heart; and make us cease to wonder that we sometimes find the imagination getting the better of the understanding.

The excessive popularity of our traveller was not fated to be of long duration. Reason, ere long, asserted her empire. Theology became too pure to tolerate the admixture of Christian and Pagan wonders, classic authorities began to be consulted and compared with modern researches. Men sought, in the works of travellers, for geographic and scientific information, not for the rehearsal of fables, to which they had learnt to attach the degree of consideration which they deserved; and when so great a proportion of a work like this appeared to be founded on a credulous echo of what was now acknowledged falsehood, a general cry of wilful fraud was raised against our author and his contemporaries of the same stamp. The accusation was, in a great measure, unjust, and founded on a total misconception of the principles and motives of the writer. Making his book rather a progressive description of the lands through which he passed, than a narrative of personal experiences. He adds, from the accounts of others, as he expressly declares in the beginning of his book, the current stories then received for truth about each country, as explanatory and illustrative of his subject; and to most of these tales he doubtless gave implicit credence: but what is not of the marvellous cast, what he himself saw and tells in the straightforward course of his narrative, he generally describes accurately and judiciously — his authority is then

weighty, mill his lestimony tun' What he tells of

the Holy Land, for instance, is minutely correct, and confirmed by the report of Broccardus, who preceded him, and by other contemporary travellers. Many instances might be produced of striking coincidences between Mandeville and the accounts of other writers of the age; and this confirms his assertion, that he consulted their works in the composition of his own book. Marco Polo had gone over much of the same country nearly half a century before. His narrative of what he saw of manners and customs, as well as of his personal adventures, is simple, and bears the stamp of truth. Mandeville's account of the old man who made a ' Paradys' on a mountain, in which, by all sorts of enticements, he sought to seduce strangers into serving his purposes of secret assassination,—of the tomb of St. Thomas,—of the general customs of the Tartars,—and the court of the

great Chan, — remarkably agree with the story of Mareo Polo, who also bears testimony to Frester John. The fabulous parts of each also often concur. Marco Polo tells of the men with tails,—of Gog and Magog,—of the tree of life, whose leaves are green above and white beneath,—and of the islands beyond Madagascar, where the wonderful bird is to be found which can carry an elephant through the air. Mandeville seems also to have been acquainted with Hayton, for his account of the origin of the Tartar monarchy perfectly agrees with that author's. So also does his history of the Egyptian dynasty of Sultans,—of the dethroning, by Mango Chan, of the Chalif of 'Baldak' (Bagdad), and his death, by starvation, in the midst of a sumptuous feast of 'precyous 'stones, ryche perles, and tresour,'—and of the province of Georgia, called Hanyson, three days' journey round, which 'is alle covered with darkness, and withouten ony brightness, or light,' though 'men witen well that men dwellers therein, but thei know not what men.'

Much, however, rested on the single and unsupported authority of Mandeville, which later discoveries and inquiries have abundantly confirmed; although, for a long time, they might have ranked with Marco Polo's account of the stones used for fuel. He notices the cultivation of pepper,—the burning of widows on the funeral piles of their husbands,—the trees which bear wool, of which clothing is made,—the carrier pigeons,—the gymnosophists, —the Chinese predilection for small feet,—the variety, &c. of diamonds,—the artificial egg-hatching in Egypt,—the balsam trade,—the south pole stars, and other astronomical appearances, from which he argues for the spherical form of the earth,—the crocodile,—the hippopotamus,—the giraffe,—the rattlesnake, and many other singular productions of nature. He describes, with spirit and discernment, the manners of the Chan's court; of a very early discovery of the use of an unconvertible paper currency, which enabled him to dispose of his bullion for other purposes. The literature of the middle ages has scarcely a more entertaining and interesting subject; and to an Englishman it is doubly valuable, as establishing the title of his country to claim as its own, the first example of the liberal and independent gentleman travelling over the world in the disinterested pursuit of knowledge; unsullied in his reputation; honoured and respected wherever he went for his talents and personal accomplishments; and (in the words of the faithful panegyric inscribed on his tomb)

'Moribus, ingenio, candore et sanguine clarus.'"

"The Language of this History is such as our Ancestors spoke, four hundred Years ago: which is a curiosity, will compensate the Reader for the Solecisms & uncouth Expressions, he will meet with. Before the Art of Printing was found out, there was no settled Method of Spelling: therefore the same word here is often spelt different ways; and that even in the same Page; as, Heved, Heed, Hed, Hede; Awtier, Awtere, Awteer, Awtiere, etc."

AUSTRALIA, VOYAGE TO, by Capt. FlinDers; for completing the Discovery of that vast Country, prosecuted in his Majesty's ship Investigator, and armed vessel Porpoise, and Cumberland schooner. With Account of the Shipwreck of the Porpoise, Arrival of the Cumberland at the Mauritius, and Imprisonment during Six Years and Half in that Island. 2 vols, royal 4to. new, in canvass, with fine Views after Westall, and large folio Atlas of Admiralty Charts and Botanical Plates, reduced from 8/. 8*. to 1/. lis. 6d.

"This truly important voyage was undertaken by command of his Majesty, for clearing up the doubt respecting the unity of these southern regions, opening therein fresh sources to commerce, and new ports to seamen, and contributing to the advancement of natural knowledge in various branches, and visiting some parts of the neighbouring seas wherein geography and navigation had still much to desire." Flinders was accompanied by Crosley, astronomer; Brown, librarian of the Linnaean Society, naturalist; Bauer and Westall,'painters of natural history and landscapes; a gardener, and miner.

The " highly valuable and accurate" charts, (18 elephant folio,) which (by the kind and liberal permission of the Admiralty) accompany the copies now offered by E.lumley, comprise the latest discoveries in this interesting country, being greatly improved since the first publication, and are alone worth considerably more than the price of the whole. The Botanical Memoir of Mr. Brown, " accompanied as it is by the incomparable plates after Bauer," contains the most important documents in that delightful science. The fine plates after Westall are distinguished by great delicacy, and are executed by the first artists. The charts and embellishments were executed at the public expense, under the patronage of Mr. Yorke, then First Lord of the Admiralty—the work itself under the superintendence of Sir Jos. Banks.

"Ce Voyage, et l' Atlas qui l'accompagne, placcnt Flinders au nombre des meilleurs marins du siecle et des hydrographes les plus distingucs. II est precede d'une introduction, dans laquelle l'auteur s'est propose pour but de tracer le progres des decouvertes, faites avant lui sur les CAtes dela Nouvelle Hollande.

• "Spanish Proverbs have been long celebrated for

their pith and humour. The Spaniards entertain so

high an opinion of their merit, that they consider

the knowledge of them, and a readiness at introduc-

correctness of the Spanish. The orthography is

conformable to the last edition of the Dictionary

published by the Royal Academy at Madrid. The

translation is as literal as possible, which will enable

the learner of the Spanish to improve himself, and

not be without advantage to the Spaniards who study

our language."
