The Illustrations of Shakspeare, published in 1807, by MR. FRANCIS DOUCE (1762-1834), and the British Monachism, 1802, and Encyclopaedia of Antiquities, 1824, by the REV. T. D. FOSBROKE (1770-1842) are works of great research and value as repositories of curious information. Works of this kind illustrate the pages of our poets and historians, besides conveying pictures of national manners.
