To which are added the names of places where they were set up,
as correctly noted as could be obtained,-still, it is feared, imperfectly.
The inscription for Dr. Thackeray was solicited by his learned descendant the present Dr. Thackeray of Chester. It was never, we believe, inscribed on his tomb.
Written on the fly-leaf of the Aristarchus of Vossius. It is probably the earliest specimen of Dr. Parr's composition in this style of writing now to be found ; having been written while he was an under-graduate at Emanuel college. A learned friend of the Editor suggests, that the word TANTUM, in line 5, must be an error of the transcriber.
