Side 89 - Many such there are, Fair ferns and flowers, and chiefly that tall fern, So stately, of the Queen Osmunda named ; Plant lovelier, in its own retired abode On Grasmere's beach, than Naiad by the side Of Grecian brook, or Lady of the Mere, Sole-sitting by the shores of old romance.
Side 117 - Some plants there are, but rare, that have a mossy or downy root ; and likewise that have a number of threads, like beards ; as mandrakes ; whereof witches and impostors make an ugly image, giving it the form of a face at the top of the root, and leaving those strings to make a broad beard down to the foot.
Side 50 - Where falls not hail, or rain, or any snow. Nor ever wind blows loudly; but it lies Deep-meadowed, happy, fair with orchard lawns And bowery hollows crowned with summer sea, Where I will heal me of my grievous wound.
Side 40 - He leaves my hand: see, to the west he's flown, To call my true-love from the faithless town. With my sharp heel I three times mark the ground. And turn me thrice around, around, around. 90 This mellow pippin, which I pare around, My shepherd's name shall flourish on the ground: I fling th' unbroken paring o'er my head— Upon the grass a perfect L is read.

Side 34 - Thus also in Midsummer-Night's Dream : " The female ivy so enrings the barky fingers of the elm." Douce observes that there is something extremely beautiful in making the vine the lawful spouse of the elm, and the parasite plants here named its concubines.
Side 5 - ... Red-headed Woodpecker." The parasites of the Oak, such as Mistletoe and Ivy, would evidently partake of the attributes of the tree and would thus be the thunder also. In the case of the Ivy a new and subordinate Thunder God would become evolved under the name of Dionysos, and Professor Harris says : " Dionysos is the ivy ; in the first instance he is ivy, nothing more or less " J ; and again : " The tree is the thunder and makes all its parasites and its denizens thunder also.
Side 34 - ls ^e manner of their lighting these givoy agon, or living fires. Some men hold the ends of a stick made of the plane-tree, very dry, and about a fathom long. This stick they hold firmly over one of birch, perfectly dry, and rub with violence and quickly against the former ; the birch, which is somewhat softer than the plane, in a short time inflames, and serves them to light both the fires I have described.
Side 23 - ... document, or, at all events, of the subscription and signatures. There is, however, something to be said on the other side in favour of its genuineness. A letter very much the same in substance was certainly written by Henry VI. to the pope on the very day on which this letter was dated. A contemporaneous copy of it is preserved in the archives of Milan, and will be found noticed in Mr. Rawdon Brown's Calendar of Venetian...
