been broached, I would recommend a most interesting letter which appeared in the Sacristy, of November, 1872, by H. B. Taylor, in which the arguments for and against each are clearly and concisely given. D. ALLEYNE WALTER.

P.S.-It should be remembered that where many chantries were founded, the Masses would be frequent and daily, and that it would be sufficient notice of the elevation if given on the small bell from the Low Side Window. The large bell might be only used for the parish Mass on Sundays, or Holy Days of obligation.
MURAL PAINTINGS AT PICKERING
was greatly interested in the account given by Rev. G. H. Lightfoot in the April Antiquary of the restoration of the elaborate series of wall-paintings of the parish church of Pickering. I own, however, to having felt more than doubtful as to the expediency and fitness of the reparation that had been undertaken, so far as I was able to judge from the printed account. But the article induced me to make a pilgrimage to the church of St. Peter, Pickering, and I wish to put briefly on record the great pleasure that the sight of these fifteenth-century church pictures gave me. Ecclesiologists owe a debt of gratitude to Mr. Lightfoot for the scholarly ability and painstaking conservation with which he has superintended this delicate task of reparation. All my scruples as to the propriety of the steps taken at once vanished on my actually seeing the accomplished work. Pickering Church can now give an incomparably better idea of medieval wall decoration of the legendary character than any other ecclesiastical edifice in England. I write this, because I think that many summer visitors to Scarborough, Whitby, or Filey, may like to know of the exceptional interest that attaches to this church.
Intending contributors are respectfully requested to enclose stamps for the return of the manuscript in case it should prove unsuitable.

The Illustration of Books, the Copying in facsimile of Ancient Deeds, Charters, MSS., Papyri, etc., the Reproduction of Paintings, Drawings, Etchings, and Old Engravings, etc.
The Illustrations being printed on paper to bind with the Book, require no mounting, so that the disagreeable curling of ordinary mounted photographs is avoided, whilst the Autotypes are as permanent as pictures or engravings.
For small editions up to 500 copies, the process known as Sawyer's Collotype gives most admirable results, at a moderate cost; for larger editions, the Autogravure process yields almost any number of uniform impressions. This latter is a method of producing upon a Copperplate a photograph which (unlike the Collotype) can be altered or amended by the skilful engraver. When completed the plate is faced with steel, and will yield in the Copper-plate press thousands of impressions of uniform excellence.
Amongst the works executed lately have been Wyon's Great Seals of England; Fasciculus of the Palæographical Society for 1888; Reproductions of Early Italian Drawings, in the Print-room of the British Museum (by order of the Trustees); Famous Monuments of Central India, for Sir Lepel Griffin, K.C.B.; Photographs of Bacteria for Dr. Crookshank, etc.
Specimens of the various processes may be seen at the AUTOTYPE FINE ART GALLERY, and full information, with prices and estimates, will be given on application to

Not only does it contain a large amount of bibliographical information, all conveyed in the pleasantest way, it is a practical treatise upon cataloguing. To all in control of libraries, to the collector as much as the librarian, the book directly appeals, and the information under the head of 'How to Treat a Title-page' is of supreme value. For the benefit of his readers, moreover, is issued an abridged list of the Latin names of places, which to those who do not possess the two series of the invaluable Typographical Gazetteer' of Cotton will be of highest importance. Under the head of 'Dates,' information which, though known, of course, to bibliographers, is anything rather than a general possession, is furnished. In whatever light this little volume is regarded it is a prize. Its size is out of all proportion to its worth."-Notes and Queries.
