B."1594, and the other probably “Orpheus his Journey to Hell, by R. B.” 1595. He at the same time acknowledges The Affectionate Shepherd” to be his.

rie Queene.” 70 Barron (Robert) Erotopægnion, or the Cyprian Academy;

1683 *** “ Alexander Pope pretm. 82." This volume is one of the most interesting records extant of this great Poet. He has read it through with the greatest attention and divided it into heads, and at the commencement of each has attached a short memorandum, as for instance,

Precept I. Not to write without a Genius.' Precept

X. Not to write fast, &c.' 105 Bold (Henry) Wit, A Sporting in a Pleasant Grove of New

Fancies, blue morocco,
Printed for W. Burden, and are to be sold at his shop

in Cannons Street, 1657.
*** The Author in his address to the Reader would
persuade him that he was the father of this “ offspring
of the new-born Muse,” when the fact is that not a few
of the lighter and better pieces are stolen without re-
morse from Herrick's Hesperides, published nine years
before. Mr. Bold has made equally bold with some
other poets, and stole his address to the Reader, with
some variation from Tho. Beedome's Poems Divine and
Humane, 1641, besides stealing wholesale from other

parts of that posthumous volume.

containing the testimony of Ben Jonson in favour of
Marlow, whose lines were examples fitter for admiration

than for parallel. Part of one leaf MS. 109 Bowring (John) Specimen of the Polish Poets, green moтоссо, ,

shop at the south-west doore of Paules, 1575.
*** This little production is of the utmost rarity. It
may be worth noting that what professes to be an exact
reprint in Vol. I. of Heliconia, is disfigured by at least
150 variations from the original, some of them of im-

portance to the sense.
