PEEFACE.

lislied to the learned world in the interests of science, has had
the present Catalogue prepared at the same time that other
branches of antiquities deposited in Alnwick Castle have been
described separately by Dr. Bruce. These collections form valuable
additions to the important and magnificent library also attached
to the Castle of Alnwick, and will ever remain memorials of the
devotion to archaeological and historical science displayed by their
noble owners in preserving the perishable remains of an immortal
past.

Much assistance has been derived in the preparation of this
catalogue from the paper impressions and drawings, and some
notes made by Mr. R S. Poole, Keeper of the medals in the
British Museum, and the drawing of the late Mr. Joseph Bonomi,
Keeper of Soane Museum, by whom the greater portion of the
Plates were executed with the usual excellence which he always
displayed in treating Egyptian subjects. To his son, Mr. W. Be
Gray Birch, the author is indebted for aid in the arrangement of
the cases containing the objects, the revision of the Text and
the preparation of the Index.

S. Birch.
