On the drapery of the table is the inscription 'Omnia leuia sunt amanti: Si quis amat non
laborat: de daer'. The meaning of the last two words is obscure. The sentence 'Si quis ... laborat' is inscribed on the background of the first miniature in Lambeth MS. 69 (which is of the same date and style), followed apparently by ‘qu[od] Herman'. 14. S.

(Beatus) Tree of Jesse. f. 96.A large number of obits, &c., are added to the Calendar, most of which are printed by Sir F. Madden in Collectanea
Topographica et Genealogica, 1834, i, P. 277. They chiefly
relate either (a) to members of the Grandison family in the 14th cent. or earlier, or (b) to royal persons of the time of Henry VII and later. The presence of the Grandison entries has led to the supposition that the book was executed for one of that family. By the time of Richard II, however, the name had died out, the representation of the family being in descendants of three coheiresses, one of them being represented by the Beauchamps of Bletsoe. As the entries then are all considerably later than the text and written in the same hand as the obit (1444) of John Beaufort, Duke of Somerset, whose wife Margaret was heir of the Beauchamps, there can be little doubt that the entries were made (perhaps from an earlier calendar) by or for her.
From the style and costume of the miniatures, however, it is probable that the book had been executed a generation earlier for her husband's father, the first Earl of Somerset, eldest son of john of Gaunt. Of the later entries two refer to the family of the Duchess' first husband Sir Oliver St. John, but most of the rest to near relatives of her daughter Margaret Beaufort, Countess of Richmond and Derby, mother-of Henry VII. A few were added still later, in Henry VIII's time, and one records the death of Elizabeth Lukas, daughter of Poll (Paul) Withypoll, 29 Oct. 1537. Madden points out that many of the entries are duplicated in a copy of the printed Sarum Missal of 1495 in Francis Douce's collection (cf. also Exeter College Oxford MS. 47). An inserted leaf (f 27) contains some verses of psalms. On the fly-leaves are (a) in a 15th cent. hand, of the Grandison obits from the calendar Copy. f. 18;-(b) Medical recipes in English, 'Kolla quyntyta', 'rosemarie' and a 'medson for the meigrem', in hands of circ. 1500. f. 1 b.

" THE COMPENDION HISTORIALL": translation by Thomas Wall, Windsor Herald [afterwards Garter King of Arms, d.1536], of the Compendium Romanorum, a French compilation extant (anonymously) in a Paris MS. (Bibl. Nat., fonds fr. 730, formerly 7163, see Paulin Paris, Les MSS. fr. de la Bibl. du Roi, v p.429) which has a note 'ex camera compotorum Blesensis,' and is conjectured from the arms to have belonged to the poet Charles, Duke of Orleans. It is an amorphous work in two books, not confined to Roman history and by no means
chronological in its arrangement, its purpose being explained
(f. 6 b) in "The prologue of hym which made the booke in Frenche." In this prologue, which does not appear to be
contained in the Paris MS., the compiler states that having in another book of his given an abridgement of three decades of Livy and the First Punic War he now proposes to collect and explain the historical allusions in St. Augustine's De Civitate Dei and in the additions made thereto by the translator Raoul de Presles. The allusion to a previous work renders it probable
that the compiler was Jehan Mansel, whose Fleur des Histoires (Royal MSS. 16 F. vi, vii) begins with a paraphrase of Livy and of Leonardo Bruni on the First Punic War. Wall, who became Rouge Croix Pursuivant in 1521, was the son of another
Thomas Wall, successively Lancaster Herald and Norroy King of Arms (Letters and Papers, Henry VIII, i, no. 3986) and the translation is apparently autograph (cf. Cotton MS. Galba B. ix, f. 58). He prefixes a preface in which he states that he began the translation 4 June, and ended it 8 Sept. 1528, and adds an epilogue including a full list of the authors quoted (mostly at second hand) in the course of the work. From blank spaces left near the end it would seem that he translated from a copy the last page of which was torn. Translator's preface (f. 1) beg. "Duryng the shorte and transitorious lyffe," and is followed by table of chapters; author's preface (f. 6 b) beg. "They which
desire hastely and without great studye" ; and text (f. 8), "Forbycause that ther be many oppinions." Ends "to see hym face to face with sceurete of." Colophon, "Amen finis here endyth the compendion historiall." Epilogue beg. To the laude bonnour and prayse of oure sauiour Jesu Crist his blyssyd mother." At f. 300 is a table of subject-headings taken from the translator's marginal analysis. A few quotations from Latin
classical authors are added in the margins (ff.34, 34 b, etc.) and in the same l7th cent. band are some English verses on
f. 10 b, viz. "The ould tradition left to mann Doth give to gods the power to bann His ill attempts, as Troys fall shows. Yet Rome that marthyred Remus knows A way to keepe the gods in awe, And thus there [their] powers not worth a straw." Paper; ff. iv + 301. Folio. 1l 3/4 in. x 8 in. A.D. 1528. Illuminated initial of interlaced work (gold on blue) to bk. ii (f. 205); that to bk. is outlined only. 19th cent. binding by Lewis (see f. iii b). On f. 299 b is the note "This boke was bought by Thomas
Treheyron, Somerset, for v.s. by [? of] an upholster in London the x day of Februarii anno r.r. H. oct. vicesimo ix " .
Treheyron's name occurs also at ff. 1 b, 2, 8, 301, in the last case accompanied by arms (not his ?), viz. quarterly, 1 and 4 a bird (raven ?) within a bordure engrailed, 2 and 3 barry of 8, a lion rampant. Treheyron is said to have married Catherine,
daughter of Sir John Writh, Garter (Noble, College of Arms, p. 126), who was aunt of Thomas Wriothesley, lst Earl of
Southampton (cr. 1547), to whose wife the MS. afterwards
belonged. Her signatures, both as Jane Wryothesley and Jane Southampton, occur (ff. 1 b, 2 b, 9 b, 40, 93). Scribbling of the l7th cent. includes (f. 285) the words "To his louing father
Christopher Thomson" (cf. f. 234). Later the MS. belonged to Joseph Haslewood, the antiquary (d. 1833), whose bookstamp on vellum is on f. i, to Thomas Thorpe, the bookseller, and to Sir Thomas Phillipps. Phillipps MS. 8903 (sale-cat. 1913, lot 806).

initials on the pages with miniatures, there are four 6-or 5-line initials containing representations of the evangelists on ff. 83-85. The remaining major historiated initials are 5 or 4 lines deep and occur on ff. 40b, 41b, 42b, 44, 77, 85-87b, 89, 89b, 91, 91b, 92, 92b, 93-94, 119b, 147. Their subjects include:- the head of the Almighty (f. 77), the Apostles (ff. 85-87), St Stephen (f. 89), St Laurence (f. 89b), St Christopher (f. 91b), St George (f. 92), St John the Baptist (f. 92b), St Mary Magdalen (f. 93), St Margaret (f. 93b), St Katherine (f. 94), the Virgin and Child (f. 119b). There are also a large number of smaller
historiated initials of between 1 and 3 lines throughout the MS.
The miniatures may be assigned to probably two hands. By the first and better hand are those on ff. 7, 10b, 17, 19, 22, 23b,
24b, 37b, 53 and 74b; by the second, presumably an assistant
of the first, the miniatures on ff. 20b, 27, 67b, 95, 98b, 100 an(102, and also possibly that on f. 55b, which may however be
by a third hand. By the first hand are also the better historiated initials, e.g., those on ff. 7, 10b, 17, 22, 37b, 74b, 77, 85 (second initial), 86-87; others are by the second hand. The first hand has been identified as that of 'Johannes', the artist who executed some of the miniatures in an Oxford MS. of 'Li Livres du Graunt Cam', now Bodleian Library, MS. Bodley 264, on whom see further Turner, 'The Bedford Hours and Psalter',
p. 270 and nn. 11, 12, and Rickert, Painting in Britain, pp. 165-6, 174-5. It has been suggested that the second artist was
responsible for the passion miniatures in the Bedford Psalter and Hours, Add. MS. 42131, which are closely related
iconographically to those in the present MS.: see Turner, 'The Bedford Hours and Psalter', p. 270, n. 12; 'The Wyndham Payne Crucifixion', p. 22. In Rickert, Painting in Britain, p. 174, however, the passion miniatures in the Bedford Psalter are
attributed to Johannes himself. The statement in Rickert, La Miniatura Inglese, p. 26, that some of the portrait heads in the present MS. are by Hermann Scheere is a typographical error, according to information from the author.
