3. Will. Forster's Virginal Book. This vo- lume, which belongs to Her Majesty the Queen, is preserved at Buckingham Palace, and consists of 238 octavo folios ruled in 6-line staves. The water-marks are a shield surmounted by a coro- net, bearing a fleur-de-lis on the escutcheon, and a pot with the initials 'E. O. R.' The book pro- bably belonged to Sir John Hawkins, and has been bound in modern times in half red morocco and paper boards. At the beginning is a ' Table of the Lessons,' written in the same hand as the rest of the book, and signed '31 Januarie 1624. Will. Forster.' The following is a list of the contents of the volume :
