NOTES AND QUERIES. [11 s. XL JAN. 23, 1915.


Cromwell, record of ' Not Guilty ' in respect to Richard Marten, and record that William Hill confessed the indictment. And also that Thomas Sutton, after pleading his clergy effectually, was branded and sent to prison in Bridewell ; that William Hill was branded in London, and that Oliver Cromwell was sentenced to be hung (doubt- less on another indictment, Ed.) in London.

SOUTHEY'S WORKS (11 S. x. 489 ; xi. 31). I do not think that any systematic biblio- graphy of Robert Southey exists. Perhaps the following notes may be of some use.

At the end of vol. vi. of ' The Life and Corre- spondence of Robert Southey,' by the Rev. Charles Cuthbert Southey (1850), there is an Appendix which gives an outline bibliography which might well become the basis of a better work. First there is a list in chronological order of Southey's published books, and this is followed by lists of the poet's contributions to periodical literature. Southey contri- buted largely to ' The Annual Review ' for 1802, 1803, 1804, 1805. He wrote the historical part of ' The Edinburgh Annual Register ' for 1808, 1809, 1810. Between 1808 and 1838 he wrote nearly a hundred articles for The Quarterly Review, and he wrote three articles for The Foreign Quar- terly Review. He contributed to The Critical Review. Joseph Cottle, the bookseller and publisher of Bristol, was, as is well known, closely mixed up with Southey's early pub- lishing, and many facts could be gleaned from Cottle's ' Reminiscences of Coleridge and Southey.' Some exact and detailed in- formation is obtainable from Mr. T. J. Wise's


'Bibliography of Coleridge,' 1913 (Biblio- graphical Society). The entries of Southey's works in the B.M. Catalogue are well arranged.

In his later years Southey became a biblio- maniac almost of the type of Richard Heber (but without Heber's means of gratifying his fancy). His library was sold by Sotheby on Wednesday, 8 May, 1844, and fifteen following days. A paragraph at the opening of the Catalogue states :

" At the particular request of some of the friends of the late Poet Laureate we have marked with an asterisk those works to which he has affixed his autograph. S. Leigh Sotheby & Co."

Fraser's Magazine for July, 1844, con- tained an article upon the sale. Thomas Kerslake, the bookseller of Bristol, and Thorpe of 178, Piccadilly, issued catalogues containing numbers of Southey's books and manuscripts. A. L. HUMPHREYS.

It is necessary to add a word to what is said at the former reference. The bibliography appended to Southey's ' Life and Letters ' appears to be complete, with one small exception. In a note to the ' Contributions to Periodical Literature,' the editor says: "My father reviewed ' Gebir ' in The Critical Review. I regret that I cannot obtain a list of his contribu- tions to that periodical."

FRANCE AND ENGLAND QUARTERLY : ARMS OF ANJOU AND NAPLES (11 S. x. 281, 336 ; 396, 417, 458, 510; xi. 50). It should be kept in mind that in the Middle Ages arms were not attributed to states or countries, but to individuals, families, or corporate bodies only. It was not until the end of the fif- teenth century that territorial arms became the fashion, and new arras were invented for such states as had no arms of reigning families to show. In the thirteenth and fourteenth century it is (strictly speaking) incorrect to refer to the " arms of Anjou " or the "arms of Naples." It should be " arms of the Counts of Anjou." The two shields in question, France ancient with a label gules, and France ancient with a border gules, are both arms of members of the French Boyal house : the first, of the Counts of Anjou, beginning with the famous Charles of Anjou, son of Louis VIII. ; the latter, of the Dukes of Anjou, beginning with Louis, son of John, King of France.

Charles was born in 1220, was made Count of Anjou and of Maine 1246, became King of Naples and Sicily 1266, titular King of
