3Title:  Copia schedula   
 Creator:   
 Publication:  Germany], 1596. 
 Notes:  Ms. codex. Poem of 18 lines, in rhymed couplets, that seems to make fun of a local official (Schulteis), referred to as Junckher Schadenfro, who is suspected of being a thief and had to pay a fine (Diebschilling) to Grauen (Old or Count?) Henrich. The poem makes reference to itself as a letter (brieflein) for the edification of the official, and also as a pasquil (Pasquill), i.e. lampoon for circulation. A handwritten label on the reverse, with the heading Copia schedula (perhaps indicating that this is a copy), implies that the poem was written by Henrich Moritz, a local constable (Stattknecht), and his associate or assistant Johann Cyriaxen, at noon on Thursday 30 September 1596, in Buding (?), and that the original is in the office (Cantzleij) of Grauen Henrich. Title from handwritten label on verso. Layout: Written in 18 long lines. Script: Written in a German cursive script by a single hand. Binding: Modern boards. Origin: Written in Germany in 1596. 
 Extent:  1 leaf : paper ; 213 x 164 (150 x 110) mm. bound to 220 x 175 mm.

6Title:  Le magazin des modernes ... [etc.]   
 Creator:  Panard, Charles-François, d. 1765 
 Publication:  France, between 1760 and 1799?] 
 Notes:  Ms. codex. Collection of three librettos for comic operas and two vaudeville lyrics. Two of the operas have the god Mercury as a character; the third has female characters only. Collective title from title page for the second opera (p. 33), which was published repeatedly in the 18th century; Zacour-Hirsch supplied the title Opera comiques. Date estimated from similarity to a 1762 edition titled Le magasin des modernes. The characters of La bequille du bon homme Barnabas include the philosopher Barnabas, his valet Nicaise, Mercury in disguise, the young shepherdess Colette, and a chorus of shepherds and shepherdesses. The characters of Le magazin des modernes include Mercury, Apollo, A Poet, La Bagatelle, La Nouveauté, La Rime, and Le Chanteur. This manuscript of Le magazin des modernes differs substantially from the version published by Duchesne in 1758. It is much more similar to the "nouvelle édition" published by Foppens in 1762, although the scene divisions and air tunes vary. The characters of L'infidélité punie are Scapin, Julie, Eraste, and Spinette. Pagination: Paper, 50 leaves; [ii], 1-65, [66-98]; one quire; contemporary pagination ink, modern pagination in pencil, upper outer corners.
