It was purchased at Mr. Lloyd's Sale for 281. 10s. Among others, there are Epigrams to Drayton, Selden, Ben Jonson, Bird, and Dowland, and not a few of them are interesting, as they relate to the biography of the author, who, in a note to the following Epigram, tells us that he was born at Northmims.

There famous Moore did his Utopia wright
And thence came Heywoods Epigrams to light.
And then this breath I drew wherewith (our owne)
These shaken leaves about the worlde are blowne."

He subsequently became the master of the Free-school at Wymondham, and several of the Epigrams are addressed to his scholars.
