The Astor I ibrary, aa might nat.ually be expected in om so recently formed, la not remarkable for booia of Wkieh the whole value consists m their rarity. In a late visit to It we found but far only of this clau. On the other hand, it appeared to b? w-U farnlabed with tha xacwt important and most vu'.utbie work* in every da yartaaent, especially with tboie which denlope the pro gress of huuian knowledge in tbe last half tentiry Whatever of antiquity recent researches bare disen! tombed and ucrolled, can there be seen and studied in the costly works which describe them The wonders of Ancient Egypt can be examined in the exact delegations of its monuments, either of Chanipelilon or Roselhni or Lepeius, and those of lfin?vh tu i.ayazd or Botta and Slandin; of India, in Ferguson; or Greece, la Staart, fu wood and W'Ukins; of Pompeii ?ai Horcal&naum, in Cell, Zabn cr Breton; of Homo in Piraaeal, Viscontl and Canino; ofMexiooand Centra .interna, in Lord Kio^s borough, HciubMdt, Dupalx. aua W idxek i Ancient and modern art (4 well represented by a rich collection of musenmi and galleriee of engravings of the works of the great maaters, in palo'lng and sculpture. Among theee the following deserve e pscial notl:e. The "Husee Francais" is a proof c? py before tbe letter, with yery biillunt plates; the " Gsli'ie du Calais Pittl" is also a proof copy; the " Loggm di Ralfaele nel Vatieano,'' Including the Volte, PUaatri and Axtoeachi, are beauti fully and delicately colored oy bini. exactly like the originals; the copj of M?utetne??ter's engravings of the 'Logos du Vatican," including all tbe pr nts of R\. jrhael's bible, is a splendid one on 'taiua paper, and there art many ethers scarce'y leu worthy of note. Dlreetly over that portion of the libra; y saloon appro yiiated to the last named class of books, we found a large collection in a dopartmer.t still more important? that of tbe useful arts. Of tbe*e we nay spec:fy Wyatt's " Industrial Arts of the Nineteenth Century,'' Armengaud's "Publication Iniu trielle," " E'?ablis*e mens Industrie-lie* de la Belgiqr.e," " R*vu? Ge-aoiaie de l'Arehiteoture," Rennie'a work on htrbors, t-mea*ou and the two Stevenson* on th?> great English lighthouses. From the beginning which has b?en made in this de partment, wt> infer that It is iaeadel to make it very complete, and such aa the Inventive and rapidly advancing ?Industry of tbe country Teqairea; and knoving that it is one for which Mr. W. B Astor bad made especial provi sion, there can be no doubt that tbls object will be ef fectad. We were pleased to observe that natural history bad not been neglected in forming Ik's library. In every branch of It we found the leading works on its shelve-. ? but we can only specify a few. Audubon's "Birds and 'Quadrupeds," both large ant small editions; Gould's ?' Birds of Kurope and An tralia;" Bloch's "Fishes," Sipthorp's ' Flora Gresa;" Lamovrt's "Pines;" Cu rler's "Animal Kingdom," both in Frenoh and English ; * Martin's "Palm* of Bratil;" Abbot's " Insects of Geor. ?ia;" Kieaer'e " Coqulilee VI ranges," and Chenu'a " Illustration! Conchnlogique'," will suffice to show on what scale this department 1a established. Of the books . in this libraty whleh are remir able f.*r their early date, ? rarity or cost, we have only xpaoe to notice a few. The earliest printed book In tbe coll* stloa is a copy of 4 'Cicero 3e OfflL-lls," from the prees of Faust 4 Schoeffer, ia Maytnoe, February, 1460; it is in the original binding ' which must have been put on before the year 1607, as the book belonged to Charles of Lorraine, Bishop ot Meta, and grand ion of Henry II 'f France, who died in . that year. His coat of arms is stamped on both the oovera. The most costly single volume Is the first folio of Hhakspeare, printed In London 1623, which wss bought at the sale of the Duke of Buckingham's library in 1849, for eighty pounds sterling. Among the reprints there is one particularly deservla { of notloe; it is a/aerimt/sof the "Dsux l/ettres Envoi. -eg d-i a Nouvell* Franca" in 1686, to the headaof the Mtseicnin Pari*. From 1632 to 1672 annual reports were mt.'e of the principal events of the two Amerioan missions in Canada and among tbe Hurons, wh eh were published in Paris, butfor tbe jearl066so regular "Relation" has aver been discovered, and the ?bo"e is supposed to have been t he substitute for it; ofthia but a s ngle iopy waa known to exist and that was in the libra*? of the provlm'al parliament in Canada. This was lost ia the conflagra tion of the Parliament House in 'Hftt. and bad not Mr. I?nox bfen in possession of a fa - rimile of it, no copy wonld be now in existence. 0' tfc s he hai oaused a 'ew copies to be struck olf, one of which he presented to each of tbe large public libraries of tbe oouatiy. We alao'notised bore the super ?? Fren-.h edition of the "Bhafavat* Puraaa, ou Histolre 'ostique de Kriehna," (Sacred Book of tha Hindoos,) which was printed in 1840, at the laprimtrie Royal. Amongst tbe large number of ether Oriental works to be found in this library, that which will perhaps most excite the veneration of juvmde visiters, is a fine oopy of the "Alii LaOe, ' ' or Book of the Thousand and One Nights, printed from an Egyptian M8. brought to India by the late llajor Turner Macan, editor of the Shah Tfamtk. Tho most curloui book in the whole collection is. ho v ever, the "Imago Mundi" of Petrus de Alyaco or Peter d'iiUy, as be in more frequently called. This writer was born in the year 1360. He wa? successively Bishop of Pay, Cambray, and Cardinal and Legate to Avignon, where he die! in 1420. Thia first tr*, ai appeals by the reoord at the end of it, was written in 1419, bat the volume baa no date to ahow la what year it was printed. The two treatiiee "De Concordia Ahaonemioe Veritatia cum Historic," were printed in Vienna in 1400, and it ia probable that the "lingo Mundi" wn printed in the aame year. This latter treatiM haa a p? ?oliar value and tntarest*in connection with the discove ry of America. In Irving'* life and Voyages of Oo htmboj (Mew York edition, 1849, vol. t,.p. 11, 12,) he thus (peaks of it: "Being at (Seville and making re searches in the Bibllotheca Columbinn, the library gi ren by Fern ando Columbna to the Cathedral of the city, I came accidentally upon the above mentioned copy of the work of Peter Allaco. It t? an ok vo'ume in folio, bound la parchment, published soon after the invention ?f printing, containing a collection ia Latin of astrono mical and oosmograpliUal tracts of Pedro de AUaci and ?f hii disciple John C.erson. Aliaoo wm the auth?r of many work*, and one of the most learned and ingenious men of his day. Lai Catas is of opinion that his writings liad more effect in uttmu lating Columbus to the enterprise than thoie of any other author. Hla work was so familiar to Columbus that he had filled itn whole margin with Latin note a, in his handwriting, citing many tiling* whieh he had re?l and gathered elsewhere. 'Thia book, which was very old,' aontinuea Las Casas, 'I had many times in my hands, and I drew acme ttings from it, written (a Latin, by the ?aid Admiral Christopher Columbus, to re'lfy eertain point* appertalatag to his history, of whiih I before was In doubt.' (Hist. Ind. tab. cap 11.) It was a giaat satisfaction to the author, therefore, to discover the identical volume, the Farfe Mecum of Colambaa, ia a Mate cf good preservation. (It la in the Cathedral Li brary, K. G Tab. 178, No. 21.) Tm notes and citations mentioned by las Ohm, are la Latla, with maay abbre vtation* written la a very aaaaD bat neat aad distinct hand, aad run thronghoutthe volume, catling Attention to tha most striking passages, or to those wbieh bear meet apon the theories or Columbus, occasional.; con tainiag brief comments ia citing the opinions of otber authors, aneicnt and modern, either in support or in noatradictlon of the text. Tho memorandum particular' ly sited by Las Casas, mentioning the voyage of Bartholomew Diss, to the Cape of Good Hope, It to dlsptovs an opinion in the text that tb* tor rid zone was uninhabitable. This volume lea most curious aad iatereeting document ? the only one that remains of Columbus prior to his discovery. It illus trate* his researches, aad in a manner the carrent of his thoughts whUs as yst his groat enterprise existed but ia idea, and while he was seeking sssans to oonvinoo the world of its practicability- It will ho fouad also to -ooataln the grounds of his opiaioas and speculations on a variety of subjects." Tho geographical department has ? far. f timile of the following very carious map:? "Carts is delta Oo?a plots 4sCbsiatopte Cclumb rodlgt-o en laaaee HOO." Of this map Alexander Humboldt remaiM: ' To coaoslve tho Importance of this geographical monumeat, it it sufll cient to sail to mind that It Is six years prior to tin death of Columbus, and that the earlioet ciarts cf Am? tloa, exclusive of those la tbs edlticas of Ptolemy or of the comographiea of tbe fifteenth century, hithertj known, are those of 1527 ud 1620, in the fibrary of the Grand Duke of Weimar. The origin*! ohart her* re ferred to was sold in April, 1868, for I4,UV fiaocs, or ?800. The /ac stmfte in the Astor Library ru ratde by Jomard for Mr. ffalckenaer, the former owner of the orginal chart. In thla department wl'l also bo fonad copt*s or %he '?Carte Topo^raphique do In France," of wbleh about two hurdred ah sets are published, and oi the ordnance map of Great Britain. We cannot conclude this brief notice of the more re markable feature* of thU splendid collerttoi without ex pressing our sense of the obligations which w? are uade to its learned and amiable curator, Dr. Cogswell, for th - facilities which he afforded us during our visit. # Cricket oi'Bkino or Tax eiaBON.
