NO’VEL. n.s.

NO'VEL. n.s.

NO’VEL. n.s. [nouvelle, French.]
I. A small tale, generally of love.
Nothing of a foreign nature; like the trifling novels which
Ariosto inserted in his poems.  Dryden.
Her mangl’d fame in barb’rous pastime lost,
The coxcomb’s novel and the drunkard’s toast. Prior.
2. A law annexed to the code.
By the civil law, no one was to be ordained a presbyter
till he was thirty-five years of age: though by a later novel
it was sufficient, if he was above thirty. Ayliffe’s Par.
