Sanchoniʹatho

.

A forgery of the nine books of this “author” was printed at Bremen in 1837. The “original” was said to have been discovered in the convent of St. Maria de Merinhâo by Colonel Pereira, a Portuguese; but it was soon discovered (1) that no such convent existed, (2) that there was no colonel in the Portuguese service of the name, and (3) that the paper of the MS. displayed the water-mark of an Osnabrück paper-mill. (See Richard of Cirencester.)
