given here. The cosmographical appendix contained in the second version, and considered by Dr. Asher and other antiquarians a document of great importance, was not contained in the copy printed by Ramusio. Verrazzano's voyage and letter have been the occasion of much controversy. There are those who believe that he never came to America at all, but that the letter was ingeniously prepared in France, with the connivance of the King, as the basis of a claim to American territory. Mr. Henry C. Murphy has been the ablest objector to the genuineness of Verrazzano's letter and voyage.

thed his annotated set of his own writings together with the most valuable of his manuscripts and maps to the Library of Congress. Harrisse's achievements tend to dwarf the work of two New York historians who took a high stand in the circle out of which he got his first impulses to historical scholarship. James Carson Brevoort (1818-87) was a business man who gave his leisure to history. His Verrazano, the navigator (1874) was an important book on that phase of our early history. Henry Cruse Murphy (1810-82), a lawyer and Democratic leader of high character, found himself stranded when the Civil War swept his party into a hopeless minority. Unwilling to twist himself into a Republican he retired from politics and devoted himself to history and the care of the large library he had collected. One of his books, The voyage of Verrazano (1875), taking the opposite side from Brevoort's, was received as the best on its side of the controversy. These men represent the early manifes
