Each number has the title at thc top of pago [1]. The first threo numbers, witli tlie titlo first cited, arc printed in tho Latin lettcr , and havo the pagination 2-48; tlioy includc tho final threo montlis of 1773, and form tlie only portion of the journal incntioned in thc British Museum Cataloguo (col. 13). With the issuo for January 1774 begins a new, invariablo title—the sec- ond hero cited— and the typo used is the Danish Gotli- ic; tlio pagination is distinct (2-144), but tlie nine numbers of 1774 aro a continuation of those belonging to tlie British Museum—and with tliom make up the first volume of the journal, wliicli is here treated as a wholc. In Bibl. Not. IV., no. 69, it is incidontally stated that .the volumes of tliis tirst nowspaper issued in Icoland liavo general title-pages, and one sucli is there reproduced from tho copy in tlie Copenhagen Royal Library. It sccms, liowever, highly probable that the title-pages to vols. I. and IL of tlie Maancds- Tidcnder in the great Danisli book-collection were spe- cially printed by tho historian, Petor Friderik Suhm (1728-1798), to whom tho copy formorly belonged. The general title-page to vol. III. (publislied in Copenhagen) as givcn in Bibl. Not. IV., no. 69, is gcnuinely prefaced to tlte volume.—The contents of Vol. I. include, besides domestic intelligence, a pocm of welcomo in Icelandic and Latin addressed to tlie travelers, Sir Joseph Banks and Daniel Carj Solander, on their arrival at Skálholt by Bjarni Jónsson, rcctor of tlie Cathedral Scliool at tlmt jilace ; an interesting sketcli throwing light on the condition of the “ öxeraao Alting,” thirty years before the suppression of what had been, in the preceding agos, an important legislative body; various articles and documents—occupying a very considerable space— relating to tlio afíairs of the “ Almindelig llandels- compagnie, ” the form of commercial tyranny under which Iceland at tliat date suffered; a description , by Guðlaugur Svcinsson, of a “ Moluscum Sæpia; ” and many miscollaneous essays.—Thc collection now possessés the tlireo volumes of tlio raro Maaneds-Tiden- der completc, as it does most of tho works of its cditor, Magnús Ketilsson. —Sce Bibl.

[1], pp. 4-136; sigs. A—I (the last in 4).— Of tlie author of tliese ritnur Dr. Jón Borkelsson, tlie younger, says, in liis exhaustivo trcatise, ‘Om Digtuing- en pá Island’ (Copenhagen 1888):—“ Det er bekendt at Arni Böövarsson (d. 1777) digtedo de^fiesto af sine mange rimecykler for sysselmauden Jón Arnason pá Ingjaldshóll, livis fledföring hau tilsidst blov, tlms iu somo manner reviving in moderu times tlie rölc of a court or famiiy poet. IIo was born in 1713 and may, perliaps, bo considered tlio principal rimur-poet of tlie cighteentli century. Some idoa of his fertility may be gained from thc followiug incomplotc list of tho rimur he composed: Rímnr af Grimi Jarlssi/ni (3 cantos), his earliest liroduction of this class , written in 1741. ViJlsungar rimur (including tho * Rimur of Völsung- um,’ cantos 1-16, tho * Hímur af BuSlungum og Gjúkungum,’ cantos 17-22, and tlie ‘Rimur af Ragnari Lobbrók og sonum hans,’ cantos 23-36, writtcn in 175S. At the end of this long produc- tion the poet has interwoven in liis verse his own genealogy. liimur af Alcxander og Loövik (8 cantos), composed in 1763. Iiimur af Asmundi viking, written in 1768. Rimur af Ilaraldi liringsbana (12 cantos). Ilalfreðar rimur vandrœöaskáld (12 cantos). Brávalla rimur, also stylod ‘Rimur af llaraldi liil- ditönu,’ (10 cantos). Rimur af Eiriki viðförla (34 cautos). Rimur af Agnari konungi llróarssyni (16 cantos); published as abovc, Hrappsoy 1777. Rimur af Þorsteini uxafœti (10 cantos); publislied Copcnhagen 1771, edited by Ólafur Ólafsson (Olavius), and again in 1858. Rima af Þorsteini suðurfara (12 stanzas), published under tho title of ‘ Eitt Æfintyre ’ iii 1781 (see 110. 60). Moreover lio wrote a portion at least of the last (7th) canto of tho Grobians rímur, and of the sixteen cantos of tlie ‘ Rimur af Ulfari sterka ’ lio composed tho last seven and a half, the earlior portion being tlie work of Þorlákur Guðbrandson (d. 1707)—publislied Ilrappsey 1775 and Viðey 1834. Ilálfdan Einarsson (p. 76) ascribes to liim various other rímur, and adds : “ & quam plurima alia carraina sacri & profani argumenti fudit & fuudit solertissimus Poeta.” Of his sliorter pieces many are or have been popular, sucli as tlio ‘ Skipafregn,’ whicli is his at least in part, the ‘ Karlskvæbi,’ tlio ‘ Úlfarsdrápa (12 stanzas), tlie ‘Kvæbi um Hálf og Hálfsrekk’ (7 songs;,
