MediƦval London.
Lookbg a don
Times, of a work in course of publi
cation, under the style of .Liber Albus,
compiled A: D. 1419, and edited by Henry
Thomas Riley, M. A.; Ao., under the di
rootion of the Master of the Rolls, we
find many curious facts respecting Lon
don life in what is called its medieeval
period. The book is a compilation from
the municipal records at Guildhall The
Reviewer says of it: ; '
For the ourioas phases and details of
this civic life, with its close and stringent
limitations, the Liber Albus, one of the
many books at the Guildhall, is the most
important Compiled under Aeauspioea
of John Carpenter, town olerk in 1419,
(who was also an M, P., executor of
Kiohard Whittington, and ' the real
founder of the City of London School),
the Liber Albus has always been held in
high esteem, as one of their ohoicest
heirlooms, by the civio authorities. In
faot the Liber Albus is white no longer,
and is now known as the Liber Niger,
because aooording to an epigram in
scribed on its fly leaf, it has been
th umbed and greased with vacant . rever
ence by civio commentators. Dead may-,
or hare left their sign manuals upon ita
margins in the unctuous 1 exudations
of digested turtle.-: J'Unotis," : says the
Epigrammatist, meaning , grease spots:
but, inasmuch as they are imputed to
their authors in Ovidian Latin, successive
Aldermen have slept the sleep of inno
cence, happily unoonoious of the wag's
indictment It is impossible that we can
repeat ere all that the Liber Albus eon
tains, but its editor conceives that he ia
speaking within limits when he says that
thore is no mediaeval work or compilation
at present known ave and except some
volumes of the Letter Books between B
and I that is so informing on the laws,
manners and institutions of town life in
this country at a distance of time ranging
from 200 yr 300 years after the Norman
conquest-, 'v.:;, ...
LONDON HOUSES IN THE MID-DAYS OF THE
PLANTAGENETS.
The mode of living was ooarse and
meagre beyond conception, and there was
adefioienoy of personal comfort which
we can hardly realize, The mediaeval
citizen lived in a house whioh barely
sheltered him from the inclemencies of
the weather, and where the smoke, rain,
and wind disputed his oocupancy. The
houses were at first mere hovels of wood
or ashlar work; but after London was
burnt in the reign of King Stephen, there
was framed, in the first year of Richard
I., "FitJ Alwyne's Assize," in other
words, the earliest English building Act,
whioh required stone materials for parti
tion walls, and imposed other conditions
as to roofs, gables, projections, &o. At
the time of the promulgation of Fitz
Alwyne's Assiae it is evident that the
houses in London consisted of but one
story over the ground floor, and no more.
But in the early part of the fourteenth
centnrv we find houses in London of two
or three stories, eaoh story I sometimes
forming the freehold of different mdi
vidaals entered, probably, by stairs on
the outside, and causing such multiplied
disputes that Edwardus Secnndus Rex
had to interfere by mandate to direct
each owner to keep his own part in due
repair. Windows are mentioned in . the
Assize, but glass to glaze them, imported
from Flanders, was apparently rare; while
at tnat day chimneys were not at least,
in towns, though by the year 1300 they
were comparatively common. Then it
was enacted, with proper precaution, that
they should be faced with plaster, tiles,
or stone; and part of the oath taken by
the Scavagors of the City on entering
office is to the effect that they will see
"that all chimneys, ovens, and reredosees
are made of etone, and sufficiently pro
tected against the poril of fire. . The
couplers of large houses wore also re-
: quired to keep ladders for the suocor of
their neighbors on an emergency; and
each ward was enjoined to provide ' a
strong iron crook with a wooden handle,
two onains, and two strong cords, fot the
speedy removal of burning houses; which
provision, as the editor says, speaks very
positively for the slight and unsubstantial
' manner of their construction. ... ' ! .
HOW LONDONERS DRESSED.
. In the matter of raiment the mediaeval
itizen was apparently better provided
than in meat and drink, f which latter
hehadsoant variety. It is remarkable
that throughout this volume, with its pro
fuse regulations as to provisions, there is
no mention or mm as an artiole of diet.
while it is equally evident that butter was
sparingly used, -The only English fruits
wbich are apples pears, and walnuts;
and the only i English i vegetables are
onions, garlic, ' and leeks. Feas and
loans are, indeed, mentioned; but these
must have 'been of coarse qualitv, as
apparently they were used, as food for
k horses, i In: comparison with- butchers'
meat, the mediaeval citizen was a large
! ! consumer of fish; yet lobsters, crabs, and
shrimps are not alluded to, and it is quite
evident tnat Ihev were seldom.' if ever.
' eaten by Londoners. - There is a' consid
erable list "of ; articles imported from
abroad, but the sale of these was 1iamp
1 ered by various restria'ions.;. which en
? hanced their price, and which must have
effectually prevented their general distri
bution." Bv a citv regulation, auoted in
' the present volume from Liber Horn, and
of the date probably f Edward-It, 'it is
enacted, that from henceforth "a strange
merchant may lodge where he pleases,
but he shall not sell by retail: as for in
stance, fustic woods, he shall not sell less
Hum 15 of wem; ana tf bo fave
cumin, ginger, alum, braeil. latten or
frankincense, -he shall not Bell less than
25 pounds thereof at a time. If he bring
girdles he shall not sell less than a thou
sand and twelve at a time; if cloths of
silk, wool or linen, he shall sell them
whole; if he bring wax he shall not sell
less than a quarter. Foreign merohants
also shall not be allowed to buy dyed
oloth while wet, or to make dye, or to do
any work that belongs to the citizens;
they shall not make a market in the city,
nor shall they stay in the oity more than
forty days. One of the provisions as to
travelers landing at St. Botolph's Wharf
possibly implies the possession of a ne
cessary garment, the existence of whioh
in the middle ages has been generally
denied. The passenger was allowed to
land his luggage free of wharfage 4,if car
ried under the arm," and if only contain
ing things for his necessities ,a doos et a
l,t" "for baok and bed." The , impres-
sion hitherto has been that the medi.
worthy at home or abroad was always in
the habit of tumbling into bed in a state
ef nudity; but the words quoted above, if
they do not mean sheets or blankets,
imply the barest scintilla or possibility of
anight shirt
THE ANCIENT LONDON DOG AND SWINE LAW.
But it is when we come to the internal
regulations of the City that we appreciate
the discomfort of living in the middle
ages, for the ordinances were so framed
that, with the very best intentions, they
were practically a restraint upon everybody's-convenience.
Thus, nobody but
the bakers were at liberty to keep swine,
and swine found wandering within the
walls of the oity might bo killed. The
swine of St Antony's Hospital were, how
ever, privileged, in cinsideration of the
patron saint; but the renter of this institu
tion was sworn not to extend this exemp
tion to other pigs, or to hang round their
necks the bells which were the distin
guishing mark of St Antony'B own. It
was equally forbidden that dogs should
wander about the city, either by night or
day, without some one to look after them,
excepting always "genteel dogs" (chiens
gentilx,) or, in other words, dogs which
belonged to "the great lords of the
land
LONDON STREET REGULATIONS, &c.
i In addition to a variety of street regula
tions as to pavage, Jkc, there were verjr
strict limitations of the size of the materi
als of the strakes or ruins of cart wheels.
No cart, with firewood, timber, of char
coal on sale, oould stand anywhere in the
eity excepton Comhill; most other
wares bad their special marts; - the
gates were strictly watched to levy
tolls and prevent the ingress of
lepers and other . forbidden persons.
Nobody mast forestall wares or wines
in the Pool; no ship or boat must
moor off Southward watermen were
similarly restricted at nightfall; while
the purity of the Thames and its tributa
ries, at that time greatly used for brewing
and culinary purposes, was strictly pro
tected from offal and rubbish. No person
was allowed to temp. Edward III. to bathe
in the Tower Foes, or in the Thames
near the Tower, under penalty of death.
Previous to the banishment of the Jews
there was a tax upon their interments;
the lepers were only permitted to ask
alms through a common deputy; the
women of ill-fame were relegated to the
Stews of Southward The dress of these
unhappy women was the subject of fre
quent legislation; and no courtezan could
wear a vesture furred with peltry or wool,
and, later, no "hood that was furred,
except with lamb's wool or rabbit skin.'
Furthermore we learn from the Letter
Books that in the middle of the fourteenth
century most of those women were
Flemings by birth. As for South wark,
their allotted refuge, it was especially
discountenanced; the citizens were for
bidden to market there, and even the
fripperers, or old clothesmen, were for
bidden their night markets, or "eve
chepynges," on London Bridge. No one
was allowed to keep a fencing Bohool in
the city: bakers, -brewers, and malsters
were forbidden the use of spring water
for the purposes of their trades; the bar
bers were not allowed to expose blood in
their windows, but were ordered to carry
it privily to the Thames; bowyers were
forbidden to sell bows in the oity; vorious
other trades were restricted as to marks,
make, and price; the working saddlers,
skinners, and tanners were to be "chas
tised for charging excessively;" and "fish
mongers, poulterers, and other journey
men shall take no more than they used to
take." The wages of the carpenters,
masons, plasterers, tuers, ana aauDers
were regulated by a scale, which rose or
fell according to the season of the year;
and no strike or look-out could vary the
tariff whioh was imposed by the supreme
authority of the Mayor ana Aldermen.
A RODOH COSTOMEB AT A "PlOUS"
Tablb. A western cattle-dealer, who
rarely had the privilege of sitting down
to moat with a family and had never been
in a minister's house in his life, was not
long ago benighted and lost in bia ride
across the prairies, and compelled to ask
tor lodgings in toe hrst house he could
find. Happily for him, it proved to be
the dwelling of a good man, a person,
who cave him a cordial weloome, and,
what was especially agreeable, told him
supper would soon be ready. The trav
eler s appetite was ravenous; and the mo
ment he was asked to sit by, be complied,
and without waiting for a second invita
tion, he laid hold ot what no could
rcaoh.
"Stop -stop! said the good man of the
house; we are in the habit of saying
something here before we eat ;
This hint to wait till the blessing was
asked, the roach customer did not under

Butler, the fame&Irish barrister, once in

a dinner Sir Toby used to cry put "tell
