E. BASIL LTJPTON. 10, Humboldt Street, Cambridge, Mass, U.S.A. HERALDIC : IDENTIFICATION OF ARMS WANTED (12 S. x. 389). These appear to | be the arms of the family of Currence, j or Corrance, of London and Suffolk (formerly j Urren), viz., Argent, on a chevron sable between three Cornish choughs ppr. (or three ravens of the second) as many leopards' faces or (see Harleian Society, xv. 211, and Burke's ' Commoners,' iii. 370). The arms: impaled are those of Macgeoghan of West- meath, Argent, a lion rampant between three dexter hands couped at the wrist, gules ; j but the printed pedigrees do not disclose I the connexion between these families. H. J. B. CLEMENTS. HUDSON PEDIGREE (12 S. x. 391). Were i the Hudsons referred to connected with j George Hudson (1800-71), the English! railway promoter, known as the " Railway j King," who was born at Howsham, York- 1 shire ? Before thirty he had acquired a fortune, and became Lord Mayor of York in 1837. Giving his attention to railway schemes, he subscribed large sums as capital, and exercised great controlling influence on railway enterprise (1844-5). He was M.P. for Sunderland 1845-59. Carlyle called him the " big swollen gambler." He died com- paratively poor. JAMES SETON-ANDERSON. 39, Carlisle Road, Hove, Sussex. MARTIN (12 S. x. 350, 399). The papistical writer referred to at the first reference was Gregory Martin. He was born at Maxfield, Sussex, and died in 1582. Unable to conform to Protestantism, he fled to the English College at Douay in 1570, and was ordained priest in 1573. Settling! at Reims in 1578, he devoted the remainder ! of his life to the translation of the Bible known as the Douay version. JAMES SETON-ANDERSON. 39, Carlisle Road, Hove, Sussex. H. K. ST. J.

English Tracts, Pamphlets and Printed Sheets. A Bibliography. Vol. I. (Early Period.) 1473- 1650 (Suffolk). By J. Harvey Bloom. (London, Wallace Gandy. '3 3s.) BOTH from the historian and the bibliophile this first volume of a large and courageous enterprise deserves a hearty welcome. In it the labours of almost a lifetime begin to see the light. We are informed that the remainder of the Suffolk Tracts, down to 1745, is ready for the press, and that vol. ii. will deal with Warwickshire and Worcestershire. According to the present plans of compiler and publisher the series will be comprised in eight volumes, each identical in format with the one before us, but mostly contain- ing a greater number of pages. Mr. Harvey Bloom reveals in his Introduction the enthusiasm which has carried him and carried him well through an exacting task. He gives a general outline of the rise and progress of the pamphlet and the tract, by no means confining himself to the mere bibliographer's point of view, pointing out, rather, the value of the mass of this sort of writing in enabling us to gauge and to characterize that immense vital force which, especially in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, swept the minds of Englishmen this way and that way along the great currents of theological and political contro- versy. It would, perhaps, have been a good thing to state definitely what determined the assigning a given author to Suffolk. To take but two examples out of several, Grosseteste's appearance here may be barely justified by his having been born at Stradbroke, though his connexion with Lincoln strikes one as much more obvious ; but Joseph Hall was neither born in Suffolk nor had any such special connexion with the county as could outvie his connexion with Norfolk, and it is under Norfolk we should have expected to find him. We so fully see the value of this bibliographical undertaking, and have so large a measure of confidence in it, as likely to prove of national importance, that we would urge the desirability of setting out quite clearly the more rudimentary principles of classification upon which it is constructed. After considering the entries with some care, we do not at present see why East Anglia, rather than Suffolk, was not taken as the unit. These criticisms, as will readily be seen, apply only to exterior matters. For the bibliography
