Mr. Thorpe, 13. Henrietta Street, has just issued “A Catalogue of most choice, curious, and excessively rare Books, particularly rich in Early Poetry, Mysteries, Pageants, and Plays, and Romances of Chivalry.” This Catalogue is also extremely rich in Madrigals set to Music, by eminent Composers of Queen Elizabeth’s reign—and contains an unrivalled series of Jest Books, and also of Song Books.

A.B. will not be surprised at our omitting his quotations from Eugene Aram’s curious account of the Melsupper and Shouting the Churn, when he learns that they are already to be found in Brand’s Popular Antiquities (vol. ii ed. 1849), and in Hampson’s Medii AEvi Kalendarium (vol i). We have no doubt some of our correspondents will furnish A.B. with a list of Eugene Aram’s published writings.
S.T.P. There would be no objection to the course proposed, if a sufficient number of subscribers should desire it, except that it could not take a retrospective effect.
Will MELANDRA enable us to communicate with him by letter?

We have again to explain to correspondents who inquire as to the mode of procuring “NOTES AND QUERIES,” that every bookseller and newsman will supply it, if ordered, and that gentlemen residing in the country may be supplied regularly with the Stamped Edition, by giving their orders direct to the publisher, MR. GEORGE BELL, 186. Fleet Street, accompanied by a Post Office order for a Quarter (4s. 4d.).
