N. Adler on the Occasion of his Eightieth Birth? day/ constitutes Part IV of the Miscellanies of the Jewish Historical Society of England. The Essays contained in it, by members of the Council of the Jewish Historical Society and of the Faculty of Jews' College, are in some cases not of quite the same nature as those generally included in the Miscellanies, but all bear upon some aspect of Anglo-Jewish history. It is hoped that the remaining portion of the work, containing essays which could not be completed in present wartime circumstances and a Bibliography of Mr. Adler's writings, together with the Index to both parts, will be published shortly after the restoration of normal conditions.</page><page sequence="6">CONTENTS PAGE Benedict the Gildsman of Winchester.
