OWLANDS' ODONTO is the best Tooth Powder.

All dentists will allow that neither washes nor pastes can powib'ly be as efficacious for polishing the teeth and keeping them sound and white as a pure and non-gritty tooth powder: such Rowlands' Odonto has always proved itself.

. THE LIBRARY OF MAGDALEN COLLEGE, OXFORD.

In the following notes I propose to give a short account of the chief MSS. and rare printed books in our college library (formerly under my charge), though I make no pretence to do more than indicate a few out of the many points of interest which it presents.

The college seems from the time of its foundation to hare possessed a library; for our founder, William of Waynflete (Bishop of Winchester, 1447-1486, and Lord High Chancellor, 14561460), in the statutes which he gave to his society in 1479, lays down many minute rules as to the preservation, lending, and inspection of the books presented to or bought by the college.*

At present the library occupies that portion of the college buildings which is over the west walk of the cloisters, extending from the angle opposite the New Buildings to the great gateway which leads beneath the Founder's Tower to St. John's Quadrangle. It is composed of one long room,

* In the printed copy (Oxford, 1853), pp. 61-2. It may be mentioned that this edition differs considerably from a MS. copy (now kept in tbe MS. Room, and known as the Dean of Divinity's copy) which bears an inscription in the Founder's handwriting.

adjoining which two smaller rooms contain the natural science library, in great part the gift of the late Dr. C. G. B. Daubeny, Fellow of the College and Professor of Eural Economy in the University (d. 1867), whose portrait hangs on one of the walls. Another room (known as the Upper Library) in the Founder's Tower is rilled by various special collections, mainly old legal, medical, and historical books, together with many sets of periodicals (more or less complete), a selection of Chinese and Swedish works (the latter presented by the late Rev. W. Palmer, Fellow of the College), and a number of volumes in French, Italian, and Spanish, presented in 1626 by Sir Arthur Throckmorton (son of Sir Nicholas, Elizabeth's famous minister), which he had collected in the course of his travels, circa 1586.

Opening out of the main library is the MS. Room, which must be carefully distinguished from the Muniment Room. The latter is situated in a tower south of the Founder's Tower, under which is the ordinary entrance into the cloisters. The treasures of the Muniment Room (strictly speaking, two rooms, one above the other) have been calendared by the Rev. W. D. Macray, the results of his labours being contained in forty-six small oblong volumes of MS. slips deposited in the MS. Room.* He has also published an abstract of this calendar in the Report t of the Historical MSS. Commission (Fourth Report, pp. 458-465; EighthBeporl,pp.262-260),&nd. has included much most interesting and valuable information in his Notafrom Hve Muniments of St. Mary Magdalen College, Oxford, from the Twelfth to the Seventeenth Century (Oxford, Parker, 1882). Both the college and all historical students are much indebted to Mr. Macray for his unwearying labour of love, which extended over many years, and hai for the first time made clear the enormous importance and value of our muniments, the number of which is estimated at 13,000, including sixteen original Papal bulls, many papers of Sir John Fastolf (cf. Gairdner's edition of the Paston Letters, vol. ii. p. 5), and countless charters, grants, and leases.

But it is not the object of this paper to describe the muniments of the college, and I propose to notice first the contents of the MS. Room, and

* These slips aro arranged in chronological order and by connties. The volumes are as follows: Hants, 8; Oxford, 7: Lincolnshire and North Hants, each 4; Berks, Suffolk, Norfolk, each 3; Warwick and Sussex, each 2; Surrey, Bucks, Wilts, Bedford, each 1. Notts is bound up with vol. ir. of North Hants; Kent. London, and Somerset fill one volume, Essex and Gloucester another. Three more volumes are filled by the " Cartse Regies et Concessse" and other documents relating to the Hospital of St. John Baptist (on the site of which the college is founded), the papers of Sir John Fastolf, and those of Ralph, Lord Cromwell. Finally, there is a volume of miscellanies and a volume of letters,
