efficient use of the invention of movable types which can be dated with
certainty is a printed form of _Indulgence_ of Nicholas V to such as should
contribute money to aid the King of Cyprus against the Turks. A copy of this
bears in MS. a contributor's name and the date 12 November 1454." (McKerrow,
