[1360, F64] An exquisitely printed work, dedicated to John Christian Curwen, M.P. and M.H.K., of Milntown.

Robertson, who had been a Customs officer on duty in the Island on behalf of the British Government, was a keen observer and competent critic. His strictures upon the Duke of Athol got him into serious difficulties : it is said that he was for a time imprisoned in London, and his book suppressed. At any rate, a second edition was issued in which were suppressed pp. 233-235, which, it was thought, contained revolutionary doctrines. The suppressed passages commence : ' Good God ! is there no region where the Sun of Freedom shines unclouded ; where the Sovereignty of the People is revered?'

The publication of ' Robertson's Tour' in French had been known to the compiler of this Bibliography, and after seeking a copy for several years, eventually one was purchased in France.

JEFFERYS (Nathaniel).

Another edition of the book, but without the name of Jefferys, was published in 1809, and bears that date. From this edition the account of the transactions with the Prince of Wales is omitted, the Manx Magna Charta being given instead in the preface (pp. xxi to xxxviii), 2368, R.J.M. Coll.

Translation of the Title Little Mannanan, the Son of the Sea ; or a Whole Account of the Isle of Man ; explaining what the Rent was on the Manx to Mannanan ; how St. Patrick drove him and his Company away ; how Patrick put in it Christianity ; and an account of the First Bishops who were in the Island. Also an account of the First King and his descendants ; an account of the Lords ; and how the Island came to the Family of Stanley. Printed in the year [? 1778] The Ballad with the translation of the text is given in Train's Hist. pp 5'0-55. The translation into English was by Thomas Curphey of Kirk Braddan J. J. Kneen, M.A., and Donn Sigerson Piatt, M.A., believe that the Ballad contains grammatical forms which became obsolete in later Manx, and that the metres are characteristic of the old Irish Bards The existence of the 'Traditional Ballad' as described by Train was doubted, and Talbot criticised its genuineness. It is a curious feature of this copy - which is the only one in existence -that the name of the printer is not given, and that the year is scratched out from the title page. To judge from . the types used, the printer was probably Briscoe, and the probable date of printing was 1778. This date is given on the authority of Vallancy, the well-known Irish antiquary, who refers to the Ballad in a letter to the Rev. Philip Moore of the Douglas Grammar School.
It ought to be added that this unique item does not belong to the Library. It was handed to the present compiler in the year 1916 by a friend who was about to sail for Australia, with instructions to hold it until his return.

__Another copy [729 G. F. Clucas Coll. ] in which all the ten lithographed views are different from the above they are from different stones, and the text on each are in script.
Cumming's work is of the highest value, especially to the geologist. The maps and sections are his own. Cumming acknowledges the help of ' Edward Delamotte, 'professor of landscape drawing in the military college, ' Sandhurst, for the extremely faithful manner in which 'he has expressed upon stone the geological features.' He acknowledges also 'favours of the pencil from my ' friend Alfred Lemon and my quondam pupil Hugh ' Kewley.' Delamotte and Lemon were masters at King William's College, and Hugh Stowell Kewley (b. 1831) was the son of T. Kewley of Castletown, who subse quently went to the Mersey Dock Board. Cumming died on 21st September, 1868, whilst sitting with his family reading and apparently in good health. He was born on 15th February, 1812, and at the time of his death was Vicar of St. John's, Bethnal Green.
The coloured geological plates are : i, Map ; ii, Southern Limestone Basin denuded of the Tertiary formations iii, Do. including the Tertiary formations ; iv, section showing undulations caused by protrusion of Trap y, ground plan of the seashore from Ronaldsway to Cass ny Hawin ; vi, sections from Bradda Head to Cass ny Hawin, Mull Hills to Langness, Black Hill to Scarlett, section at Calf, section from the Mountains to Jurby Point, section at the Mouth of Glen Wyllin, section from Hango through K.W.

[F 64] This is the greatest historical work relating to the Isle of Man since the publication of A. W. Moore's Hist. Among the many subjects treated of are the date of the first effective Norse conquest of Man and the relations of the conquerors with the earlier Celtic inhabitants. He discusses the derivation of the words Sheading and Treen and the administrative system which they represented, and believes them to be Norse. He offers a new derivation for the name ' Keys.' The Professor spent many weeks in the Island in 1929 and 1930, conversing with Manx speakers and recording the phonetics.
