The The designs for the enlargement of the artist employed by this last, was one Thomas, who records his services in the Irish language, although the rest of the inscription is in Latin. The manuscript contains, also, a form for the visitation of the sick, written some time after the rest of the volume, and probably to be referred to the tenth century. A full account of this curious manuscript, and of the rich box in which it is contained, has been already published by its late possessor, Sir W. Betham, in his Irish Antiquarian Researches ;" where those who are curious in such matters may see an accurate engraving of that side of the box on which the inscription already alluded to is found : together with fac-similes of the writing of the manuscript,

and of the drawings it contains of the four Evangelists—which may, perhaps, be taken as specimens of the ecclesiastical habits of the seventh century in the Church of Ireland. Sir W. Betham purchased this box and its contents from Henry J. Monck Mason, Esq., for the sum of 150 guineas, and has recently sold it to the University for 1501. The University Library is now rich in these singular relics of ancient Irish Christianity. It now possesses no less than six copies of the Gospels, all of which were undoubtedly written in lreland prior to the ninth century; and four of them certainly in the seventh.
