'Ælfrici Grammatica Saxonico-Latina', cum praefatione. This appears to be a transcript by Gerard Langbaine of the MS. (Hh. 1. 10) in the University Library at Cambridge, with some readings from the two MSS. (R. 9. 8 and R. 9. 17) at Trinity college, Cambridge (cf. pp. 55, 67, etc.), and mentions of the 'codex domini Simonidis D'Ewes' (p. 1) and of the one at All Souls college, Oxford (p. 105). The style of writing from p. 29 to p. 99 is smaller than the rest.
