years from 1453, when Monstrelet died, the nine preceding years cannot be by him. This, therefore, would confine his work to the first two volumes (Mém. Ac. d’Inscriptions, xliii. p. 535).
Johnes's translation is from another edition, possibly the folio one, and is divided into volumes and chapters of each volume. The quarto edition here referred to has 268 chapters in vol. I. By a mistake Chapter 113 succeeds Chapter 111; and therefore Chapter 116, instead of 115, answers to Chapter 115, Vol. I. of Johnes. Making this correction, the reader can easily refer from the chapters cited here to those in Johnes. There are very few references to the second volume of the quarto edition.The references to Froissart are to the quarto edition, of which the first and second volumes, printed by Regnault, have no date; the third and fourth, by Verendaux, have the date 1518. The whole four are without chapters, and only referred to by the folio.
It is much to be lamented by the inquirers into the history of Charles VI. and Charles VII., that there should be so few papers on this period of French history to be found in that invaluable repository of antiquarian learning, the ó Mém. de l'Académie des Inscriptions ;' but some there are of considerable interest. M. Bonamy's two Mémoires in tom. xx, throw great light on the history and treatment of Jacques Cour. M. Oudart de Brequigny's ‘Recherches sur les Régences en France' (tom. li. 520) has already been referred to (Note LXXII.). The memoir of M. Boivin (Sur la Bibliothèque du Louvre) has also been already referred to (Note LXI.).
Two memoirs, ‘Sur la Noblesse Française,' by M. Desormeaux (tom. xlvi. 632 et 657), deserve to be consulted, as does M. Sibert's 'Sur les Cours Plénières' (tom. xli. 583).
