        GOLDEN REMAINS OF THE EVER MEMORABLE MR. IOHN HALES

      London: Printed for Tim[othy] Garthwait, 1659. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. 200 x 152 mm (7 7/8 x 6"). 6 p.l. (including the frontispiece), 188, 80, 48 pp. Edited by Peter Gunning. FIRST EDITION. Modern unlettered blind-ruled calf, raised bands. Engraved frontispiece and engraved title page, both by Wenceslaus Hollar and dated 1659. Wing H-269. Spine uniformly sunned and with one very small spot, engraved leaves closely cropped (with the tiniest of loss), text trimmed close at top (a few headlines just touched), leaves a shade less than bright, isolated minor stains, a very small hole through the gutter of two leaves (no loss), otherwise an excellent copy, the binding unworn, and the text still quite fresh. The erudite John Hales (1584-1656) was Greek professor at Oxford and held other important academic positions; he is described succinctly in the preface written here by John Pearson as "a man of great sharpness, quicknesse and subtilty of wit as ever this; or, perhaps, any Nation bred." Andrew Marvel described Hales as "one of the clearest heads and best prepared breasts in Christendom." And in a long tribute found in "Memoirs of Eminent Etonians" by Edward Shepherd Creasy, Hales is described as "respected by all who knew him for his erudition and integrity, and beloved for his cheerfulness and amiability." The present volume includes three sections: the first containing nine sermons, full of impressively brandished metaphor; the second containing Hales' early-career letters (1618-19) to Dudley Carlton, British ambassador to The Hague (to whom Hales served as chaplain), reporting from the Synod of Dort; and the third containing the Dort Synod letters of Dr. Balcanqual, Hales' replacement at the council. Of special interest in the first section is a sermon against duels.

        De Infinitis Parabolis, de Infinitisque Solidis ex varijs rotationibus ipsarum, partiumque earundem genitis. Unà cum nonnullis ad praedictarum magnitudium, aliarumque centra granitatis attinentibus... [woodcut printer's device]

      Iannem La No?Venetiis,: Iannem La Noù,, 1659.. [xx], 408 pp. Small 4to (16 x 22,5 cm.). Modern half vellum over marbled boards, new end-papers. With 183 woodcut diagrams, and numerous wooodcut initial, head- and tail pieces. The rare first edition. In 1663 a second, slightly expanded, edition was published. "Angeli's studies in mathematics include a further development of the methods of individibles - methods introduced by Cavalieri and Torricelli - to solve the problem dealing with infinitessimals and with the areas, volumes, and centers of gravity of given geometric figures. His mathematical works echo the polemics that took place in the 17th century between supporters of the method of indivisibles and those such as Guldin and Tacquet, who defended the more rigorous but less cogent exhaustive method of the ancients. "Lectori benevolo" the introduction to Angeli's "De infinitis parabolis" is interesting in this connection. To those who opposed Cavalieri's method by asserting that the continuous is not composed of indivisibles, Angeli replied in agreement with his master, that the method in question does not depend on the composition of the continuous"(DSB.).

        Catoptricae et dioptricae sphaericae elementa.Oxford: Sheldonian Theatre, 1695.

      First edition of this rare work, famous today for its suggestion that an achromatic compound lens might be formed by combining simples lenses of different media. The use of 'achromatic doublets' was a crucial step in the further development of telescopes and microscopes.<br/><br/> From Marischal College, Aberdeen, David Gregory (1659-1708) entered Edinburgh University, graduating M.A. on 28 November 1683. A month prior to his graduation he was elected to the Chair of Mathematics, at one time occupied by his uncle, the great mathematician James Gregory, whose <i>Optica promota</i> (1663) had described a reflecting telescope which used parabolic mirrors. As a professor, David Gregory was the first to lecture publicly on the Newtonian philosophy. His lecture notes show that they covered a broad range of subjects including geodesy, optics, dynamics, and various branches of mathematics. Increasingly under attack by his fellow professors at Edinburgh for his radical political views, in 1691 he went to London where he was introduced to Newton and recommended to John Flamsteed, the first astronomer royal. In that same year, Edward Barnard retired from the Savilian professorship of Astronomy at Oxford; backed by Newton's recommendation of him as 'very well skilled in Analysis & Geometry both new & old ... understands Astronomy very well ... & is respected the greatest Mathematician in Scotland', and with Flamsteed's support, Gregory was elected to the chair in face of strong opposition from Edmond Halley. <br/><br/> As Gregory tells us in the preface, the present work is the printed version of lectures delivered at Edinburgh in 1684, adapted to the teaching of Oxford undergraduates. The passage in which Gregory uses the analogy with the human eye to suggest the construction of an achromatic lens occurs on p. 98: in English translation, 'Perhaps it would be of service to make the object lens of a different medium, as we see done in the fabric of the eye; where the crystalline humour (whose power of refracting the rays of light differs very little from that of glass) is by Nature, who never does anything in vain, joined with the aqueous and vitreous humours (not differing from water as to their power of refraction), in order that the image may be painted as distinct as possible on the bottom of the eye.' Whiteside (DSB) suggests that Gregory may have had this insight from Newton. <br/><br/> The work was reprinted at Edinburgh in 1713. An English translation followed two years later with notes by William Browne on refracting telescopes and microscopes; this was republished in 1735 by Desaguliers with an added appendix on the history of the reflecting telescope. <br/><br/> In addition to the present work, Gregory published in 1684 at Edinburgh his <i>Exercitatio geometrica de dimensione figurarum</i> in which, with the assistance of his uncle's work, he extended the method of quadratures by infinite series; and in 1702 <i>Astronomiae physicae & geometricae elementa</i>, the first textbook of astronomy based on Newtonian gravitational principles. <br/><br/> ESTC R16816; DSB V: 520-1; Honeyman 1550; Poggendorff I, 948; Vagnetti CB1.. 8vo (177 x 110 mm), pp. [iv], 99, [1], with engraved vignette of Sheldonian Theatre on title and numerous woodcut diagrams in text.

        Geometriae Speciose Elementa The Most Original Pupil of Bonaventura Cavalieri

      Bologna: Giovanni Battista Ferroni, 1659. & & . Very rare first edition, and a fine copy from the library of Pietro Riccardi, of this important work on limits of geometrical figures. In this work Mengoli &#147;set up the basic rules of the calculus thirty years before Newton and Leibniz. Both of these were influenced by his contribution, in the case of Leibniz the influence was direct as he read Mengoli&#146;s work while in the case of Newton he knew of it indirectly through studying Wallis.&#148; (MacTutor History of Mathematics). <br/></br> & &#147;In the &#145;Geometriae speciosae elementa&#146; (1659), Mengoli set out a logical arrangement of the concepts of limit and definite integral that anticipated the work of nineteenth-century mathematicians. In establishing a rigorous theory of limits, he considered a variable quantity as a ratio of magnitudes and hence needed to consider only positive limits. He then made the following definitions: a variable quantity that can be greater than any assignable number is called &#145;quasi-infinite&#146;; a variable quantity that can be smaller than any positive number is &#145;quasi-nil&#146;; and a variable quantity that can be both smaller than any number larger than a given positive number <i>a</i> and greater than any number smaller than <i>a</i> is &#145;quasi-<i>a</i>.&#146; <br/></br> & Using these precise concepts of the infinite, the infinitesimal, and the limit, and working from simple inequalities valid between numerical ratios, he demonstrated (as Agostini recognized by translating his obscure exposition into modern symbols and terminology) the properties of the limit of the sum and the product, and showed that the properties of proportions are conserved also at the limit. The proofs obtain when such limits are neither <i>0</i> nor <i>&infin;</i> for this case Mengoli set out the properties of the infinitesimal calculus and the calculus of infinites some thirty years before Newton published them in his &#145;Principia.&#146; <br/></br> & Mengoli&#146;s predecessors (among them Archimedes, Kepler, Valerio, and Cavalieri) had assumed as intuitively evident that a plane figure has an area. By contrast, he proved the existence of the area by dividing an interval of the continuous figure <i>f(x)</i> into <i>n</i> parts and considering, alongside the figure to be squared (which he called the &#145;form&#146;), the figures formed by parallelograms constructed on each segment of the interval and having the areas (in modern notation): <br/></br> & <i>s<sub>n</sub>= &sum;</sub>l<sub>i</sub>(x<sub>i+1</sub>-x<sub>i</sub>), i=1, 2, &#133; n</i> (inscribed figure) <br/></br>& <i>S<sub>n</sub>= &sum;</sub>L<sub>i</sub>(x<sub>i+1</sub>-x<sub>i</sub>)</i> (circumscribed figure) <br/></br>& <i>&sigma;<sub>n</sub>= &sum;</sub>f(x<sub>i</sub>)(x<sub>i+1</sub>-x<sub>i</sub>) </i> or <br/></br> & <i>&sigma;&#39;<sub>n</sub>= &sum;</sub>f(x<sub>i+1</sub>)(x<sub>i+1</sub>-x<sub>i</sub>) </i> (adscribed figure) <br/></br>& where <i>l<sub>i</sub></i> and <i>L<sub>i</sub></i> denote, respectively, the minimum and maximum of <i>f(x)</i> on the interval <i>(x<sub>i</sub>, x<sub>i+1</sub>)</i>. Drawing upon the theory of limits that had worked so well in the study of series, Mengoli demonstrated that the sequences of the <i>s<sub>n</sub></i> and <i>S<sub>n</sub></i> tend to the same limit to which the sequences of the <i>&sigma;<sub>n</sub></i> and <i>&sigma;&#39;<sub>n</sub></i> compressed between them, also tend. Hence, since the figure to be squared is always compressed between the <i>s<sub>n</sub></i> and the <i>S<sub>n</sub></i>, it follows that this common limit is the area of the figure itself. <br/></br> & Mengoli also used this method to integrate the binomial differentials <i>Z<sup>s</sup>(a-x)<sup>r</sup>dx</i> with whole and positive exponents. (He had, preceding Wallis, already integrated these sometime before by the method of indivisibles.) Before publishing his results, however, he wished to give a rigorous basis to the method of indivisibles or to develop in its stead another method that would be immune to criticism. He therefore set out a purely arithmetic theory of logarithms; having given a definition of the logarithmic ratio similar to Euclid&#146;s definition of ratio between magnitudes, he then extended Euclid&#146;s book V to encompass his own logarithmic ratio. Mengoli also did significant work in logarithmic series (thirteen years before N. Mercator published his &#145;Logarithmotecnia&#146;). (DSB: IX, p.303-304). 4to: 198 x 147 mm.

        Epicteti Enchiridion Una Cum Cebetis Tabula Graece et LatineCum NotisMerici Casauboni

      London - Tho. Roycrofte, 1659 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A very scarce copy ofCasaubon&#39;s edition of theEnchiridion of Epictetus from the seventeenth century. In Greek and Latin. The Enchiridion, or Handbook of Epictetus, often shortened to simply The Handbook, is a short manual of Stoic ethical advice compiled by Arrian, who had been a pupil of Epictetus at the beginning of the 2nd century. Although the content is derived from the Discourses of Epictetus, it is not a summary of the Discourses, but rather it is a compilation of practical precepts. The Handbook is a guide to daily life. Unlike some of his forefathers in Greek philosophy (i. e. Plato and the other metaphysicians), Epictetus focuses his attention on how to practically apply oneself on a philosophical level. Mric Casaubon (14 August 1599, Geneva 14 July 1671, Canterbury), son of Isaac Casaubon, was a French-English classical scholar. Collated complete. Condition: In a full calf binding. Externally sound, though with some rubbing. Joints starting. Hinges strained. Internally, firmly bound. Ink signatures to title page. Paper to rear pastedown missing. Pages are bright and clean, with just the occasional patch of foxing. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        In Omnes Diui Pauli Apostoli Epistolas Commentaria

      Parisiis - Iacobum Qvesnel, 1659 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. This early work explores the teachings and writings of Paul the Apostle, who is described as the most influential early Christian missionary. The writings ascribed toSaint Paulby the church form a considerable portion of the New Testament. The influence on Christian thinking of the epistles ascribed to him, has been significant, due in part to his association as a prominent apostle of Christianity during the spreading of the Gospel through the Roman Empire. Paul asserted that he received the Gospel not from any person, but by a personal revelation of Jesus Christ. Featuring illustrated capitals and head and tail pieces. Condition: In original calf binding. Externally, a trifle rubbed with wornextremities and peeling back strip. Front board is held by the cords only. Rear joint is cracked. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright although with marginal tide marks effecting front endpaper to page 653 and 695 through to 937. Worming to pages 873 through to back board. Copperplate ink inscription to index page. Volume two only. Overall: GOOD ONLY..

        The Holy Bible containing the Bookes of the Old and New Testament ... and Illustrated with Chorographical Sculps. by J. Ogilby

      Cambridge: John Field, 1659-1660. 2 volumes, folio. (17 1/8 x 11 1/8 inches). Vol. 1: Full page engraving of the Royal arms by Hollar, letterpress dedication to the King by Ogilby, section title to the Prayer Book with ornamental surround dated 1660, A2-4, B1-L2 (bound in twos) [Book of Common Prayer]; engraved general title, ¶1-¶¶4 (in fours) [Notes to the Reader and Table of Contents]; A1-3K6 (bound in sixes), 3L1-4 [Genesis through Job]. Vol. 2: Section title page, 3M1-4Y6 (bound in sixes), 4Z1-4Z8 [Psalms through Malachi]; a-x6 (in sixes), y1-4 [Aprocrypha]; letterpress NT title dated 1659, A2-2D6 (in sixes), 2E1-8 [New Testament]. 111 engraved plates by Visscher, Hollar, Lombart and others after Rubens, De Bruyn de Vos, Tintoret and others (vol 1: 50 double-page engraved plates, 1 engraved map by Hollar dated 1657; vol. 2: 59 engraved double-page plates, large folding engraved view of Jerusalem by Hollar). Ruled in red throughout. Contemporary English red morocco, covers elaborately panelled in gilt, expertly rebacked to style, spines in eight compartments with raised bands, morocco lettering pieces in the second compartment, the others with an alternating overall repeat decoration in gilt, gilt edges. A superb copy of Ogilby&#39;s illustrated issue of Field&#39;s folio Bible of 1659, here with a larger number of illustrations than usually found, bound in period red morocco and ruled in red throughout for presentation: "...an unrivalled specimen of the press of the time..." (Lowndes). In 1659, John Field, the printer to the University of Cambridge, published a handsome, large folio King James version of the Bible. Seeing an opportunity for improvement, much of the edition was purchased by bookseller and publisher John Ogilby. Ogilby added to the Bible several engravings, including a number by Wenceslaus Hollar. In select copies, however, Ogilby further augmented the edition with sets of engravings purchased from Amsterdam publisher Nicolaes Visscher, including engravings after Rubens, de Vos, De Bruyn, Tintoretto and others. The most elaborate and most expensive of such copies, were then ruled in red and bound in red morocco, as here. Darlow & Moule 525; Herbert 668; Lowndes 1367; Lowndes, The Bibliographer&#39;s Manual, p. 188; cf. Schuchard, A Descriptive Bibliography of the Works of John Ogilby (Frankfurt, 1975).

Samlingsutgåva av Strängnäsbiskopen Johannes Matthiæs teologiska småskrifter som även innehåller sonen Johan Oljeqvists lilla historik över Karl X Gustav, med eget titelblad. Den sistnämnda utkom även separat samma år.Johan (Johannes) Matthiae (1593-1670) blev biskop i Strängnäs 1643 men är annars mest känd som drottning Kristinas lärare. Som teolog var han omstridd i det ortodoxa Sverige, med ekumeniska åsikter påverkad av Comenius, med följd att han 1664 fick avgå som biskop. Denna samling innehåller bl.a. hans pedagogiska studieordning "Libellus puerilis" (1626), hans redogörelse för Kristinas undervisning "Institutio religionis christianae "(1642) och hans "Regula credendi et vivendi" (1656), där han försvarar sig mot anklagelsen att vara orsak till Kristinas avfall, liksom hans utgåva av de böhmiska brödemas etiskt-religiösa ekumeniska kyrkoordning, "Idea boni ordinis" (1644).Hans barn adlades Oljeqvist 1645 för hans förtjänsters skull. Om sonen Johan vet vi inte mycket. Han studerade i Uppsala 1653 och verkade som canonicus i Hamburg 1658 och levde åtminstone fortfarande 1667

        Miscellanea di opere teatrali in edizioni del secolo decimosettimo.

      Viterbo - Perugia - Todi, Gregorio e Giovanni Andreoli (et alii), 1654 - 1659. 1659 4 opere in un vol. in-24° (135x75mm), cartonatura decorata coeva. Tagli azzurri. Bruniture e fioriture sparse; antico timbro di estinta biblioteca al frontespizio della prima opera. Discreto stato. La miscellanea comprende: 1) Giacinto Andrea Cicognini, "La Forza dell'Amicitia. Opera Tragica", in Viterbo, ad Istanza di Gregorio, e Giovanni Andreoli, 1659, pp. (8), 196. Vignetta xilografica a soggetto grottesco al titolo. Dedica a stampa a Giovanni Barbarossa da Montelupone, canonico di Loreto. Approvazioni preliminari. Seconda edizione, successiva di un anno alla prima impressa nel 1658 dal Pezzana di Venezia. La tragedia è ambientata nell'antica Licia e narra "una duplice storia d'amore di sapore boccaccesco" (Vinciana). Vinciana, 3884. Allacci, 370. Sanesi, II, pp. 188-189. 2) Id., "Il Maggior Mostro del Mondo, opera tragica", in Perugia, per Sebastiano Zecchini, 1656, pp. 104, (1). Frontespizio con titolo entro bordura architettonica istoriata con grottesche e stemma del dedicatario. Testatine e capilettera ornati su legno. Dedica a stampa a Curzio Marsilio e a Ranieri Tomasi. Edizione originale. La tragedia imita "El mayor monstruo los celos" di Calderon de la Barca; essa è "giudicata la miglior produzione teatrale del Cicognini, che supera lo spagnolo per maggiore penetrazione dei personaggi. L'azione si svolge a Gerusalemme e a Roma" (Vinciana). Vinciana, 3882-3883. Allacci, 495-496. Quadrio, IV, p. 114. Sanesi, II, pp. 178 e 194-197. 3) Id., "La Moglie di Quattro Mariti. Opera tragica", in Perugia, per Sebastiano Zecchini, 1656, pp. 115. Frontespizio con titolo racchuso entro bordura identica a quella della precedente tragedia. Dedica a stampa a Ridolfo Monaldi. Un restauro alla p. 47-48. Qualche testatina e capolettera ornato in xilografia. Edizione originale. La tragedia, ambientata a Londra, deriva da due drammi di Tirso de Molina, "El castigo del penseque" e "El vergonzoso en palacio". Vinciana, 3882. Sanesi, II, pp. 178 e 191. Allacci, 534-535. 4) Id., "La conversione di S. Maria Egizziaca. Rappresentazione", in Todi, per il Ciccolini, 1654, pp. 114. Al frontespizio, stemma vescovile in xilografia di monsignor Gaudenzio Poli, Vescovo di Amelia, cui l'edizione è dedicata dal Ciccolini. Testatine e capilettera ornati. Manca alla Vinciana. Il Cicognini (Firenze, 1606-Venezia, 1660), della nota famiglia fiorentina, figlio di Jacopo (prestigioso dramaturgo e grande promotore della vita teatrale della città), fu tenuto a battesimo dalla stessa Cristina di Lorena, Gran duchessa di Toscana; ingegno precocissimo, si laureò a Pisa a soli 21 anni. Perseguitato in seguito dai favoriti di casa Medici, emigrò a Venezia, dove rimase fino alla morte. Fecondo autore teatrale, librettista di Francesco Cavalli, fu imitatore, in circa 45 lavori tragici e comici, di Lope de Vega, di Tirso de Molina e di altri grandi autori spagnoli del Siglo de Oro. "Degli autori di comedie che leggevo e rileggevo spesso, il mio preferito era Cicognini", scrisse Goldoni nei "Mémoires", a conferma della larga fortuna che ancora nel Settecento ebbe l'ingente produzione dello scrittore fiorentino. Cfr., sull'arte del Cicognini: Sanesi, cit.; Belloni, Il Seicento, pp. 268-268, 290-291 e passim; Renda-Operti, 296-297. Cfr. Flavia Cancedda e Silvia Castelli, Per una bibliografia di Giacinto Andrea Cicognini. Successo teatrale e fortuna editoriale di un drammaturgo del Seicento, Firenze, 2002, passim.

        Observationum medicarum... centuria quarta

      Antoine Cellier Lyons: Antoine Cellier, 1659. First Description of Aortic StenosisRIVIERE, Lazare (1589-1655). Observationum medicarum, & curationum insignium centurae tres. . . . Edited by Simeon Jacoz. 4to. [8], 311, [9]pp. Lyons: Antoine Cellier, 1659. 225 x 167 mm. Speckled sheep c. 1659, rubbed, small wormhole in front cover. Some foxing, browning & dampstaining, old repair to one leaf. Very good copy. Old signature and notes on endpapers. First Edition. Riviere was the first to describe stenosis of the aortic valve, from a case that he treated in 1646. GM 2727 cites Riviere's description of this condition in his Opera medica universa (1674), of which the present work is the first edition; the description appears here on p. 177, and is entitled "Cordis palpitatio & pulsus inaequalitas." Riviere also brought Paracelsian iatrochemistry into the curriculum of the University of Montpellier, and it was under his auspices that Alexander Fraser introduced the Harviean theory of the circulation into the University's curriculum in 1636. An edition of the present work was published in The Hague in the same year as this Lyons edition. As Riviere was French it is reasonable to presume that the Lyons edition was first. Hirsch.

Des Heil. Römischen Reichs Chur-Fürsten und Stände zu Franckfurt am Mayn versamleter Ordinar-Deputation, den 4.14 Julij Anno 1659. Von [...] Mattias Biörenklouen. Utan ort, 1659. 4:o. 112 s. Enstaka småfläckar. Tagen ur band. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. VD17 14:052469M. Warmholtz 8361, not. Klemming, Sveriges förhållanden, s. 179. Den andra tyska översättningen av Biörenklous "Memoriale, in quo exponitur quantopere", 1659. Två olika med olika titlar finns. Ett av en stor mängd memorial som Biörenklou producerade under kurfurstedagarna i Frankfurt am Main. Mattias Biörenklou (eller Björnklou) Mylonius (1607-71) var en av Sveriges mest betydande diplomater under 1600-talet, minister i Paris och riksråd. Som den främsta svenska kännaren av Tyska rikets rätt och förhållanden skickades han som fullmäktig svensk minister till kejsarvaldagen i Frankfurt am Main 1657-59. Vid förhandlingarna där samarbetade Biörenklou med de franska delegaterna för att söka förhindra att Ferdinand III:s son Leopold valdes till ny tyskromersk kejsare. Detta misslyckades dock. Karl X Gustav önskade även en offensivallians med Österrike gentemot Polen, och Biörenklou bombarderade kurfurstekollegiet och riksdeputationen med memorial och skrivelser angående detta och annat. Österrike önskade dock ingen separatuppgörelse med Sverige, vilket inte heller stämde överens med Mazarins önskemål. Däremot lyckades Biörenklou få till ett subsidieavtal med Frankrike och att få in Karl X Gustav i Rhenförbundet som hertig av Bremen och Verden och herre till Vismar. Under 1659 flyttades Biörenklou till det franska hovet för att försöka utverka ännu mer subsidier till Sverige. Han är även ett av de mest fascinerande exemplen på klassresa i 1600-talets Sverige. Född av en mjölnare i Nykvarn dör han som riksråd i Stockholm

        J. Cleaveland Revived: Poems, Orations, Epistles, And other of his Genuine Incomparable Pieces, never before publisht. With Some other Expuisite Remains of the most eminent Wits of both the Universities that were his Contemporaries. Non norunt hëc monumenta mori

      Printed: 1659. 1613-1658 Octavo, 5.6 x 3.6 inches. First edition. A2-8, B-I8, K4. This copy lacks the portrait. This copy is a little dirty, the edges are slightly trimmed. It is bound in nineteenth century quarter calfskin and corners with marbled paper boards. The corners are worn and the paper is dirty. This volume begins a new series of Cleveland, which continued, for a few years, to be published concurrently with the regular editions of his works, and was finally incorporated in the edition of 1687. The editor of the collection, E. Williamson, in his epistle 'to the discerning reader' claims to have been a friend of the poet, from whom he received the manuscripts which he here publishes. In his words Cleveland stated to him that 'most of his former printed Poems were truly his own, except such as have been lately added, to make up the volume." Thinks can hardly refer to the borrowings from Fletcher, which appeared the same year as the present publication, since Cleveland died the previous year. The editor admits, both on the title and in his epistle, that he has included some pieces by authors other than Cleveland. The collection contains thirty-six pieces in all. Among them is a Latin version of 'The Rebel Scot,' the original of which had always been included among Cleveland's poems. Four different elegies on Ben Jonson are taken from 'Jonsonus Virbius,' a collection of elegies on Jonson, which was published after his death in 1638. In that volume only one of them, that beginning 'Who first reform'd our stage of justest laws,' is credited to Cleveland; of the other three, one is by Richard West 'Poet of Princes, Prince of Poets, etc.' one is signed by Jasper Mayne, and one is anonymous. "'An entertainment at Cotswold' is by William Durham, and was first published in Captain Robert Dover's 'Annalia Dubrensia,' 1638. Eleven pieces are taken from the Poems of John Hall, viz., 'Upon a Talkative Woman,' 'On an Ugly Woman,' 'On a Little Gentlewoman Profoundly Learned,' 'On Parsons the Porter,' 'To Chloris a Rapture, 'Upon Wood of Kent,' 'To His Mistresse,' 'On One that Was Deprived of his Testicles,' 'The Flight,' 'On a Burning-Glasse,' and 'Not to Travel.' In each case the title has been altered. It is probable that a close comparison with the miscellaneous verse of the period would disclose other borrowings." (Wither to Prior)
