Songs and Sonnets (1557), the first printed anthology of English poetry, was immensely influential in Tudor England, and inspired major Elizabethan writers including Shakespeare. Collected by pioneering publisher Richard Tottel, it brought poems of the aristocracy - verses of friendship, war, politics, death and above all of love - into wide common readership for the first time. The major poets of Henry VIII's court, Sir Thomas Wyatt and Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey, were first printed in the volume. Wyatt's intimate poem about lost love which begins 'They flee from me, that sometime did me seke', and Surrey's passionate sonnet 'Complaint of a lover rebuked' are joined in the miscellany by a large collection of diverse, intriguingly anonymous poems both moral and erotic, intimate and universal
Richard Tottel's Songes and sonettes : the Elizabethan version by Richard Tottel( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On 5 June 1557, Richard Tottel published a collection of 271 poems composed by noblemen, courtiers, and gentlemen of the early sixteenth century. Eight weeks later, 31 July, he published a revised and expanded version of 280 poems, the arrangement of which became the standard for at least ten further editions in the Elizabethan period. Q2 omitted thirty poems from Q1, added thirty-nine new poems, and in twenty-seven places altered the sequence of poems from the first edition. In eight weeks, as Hyder E. Rollins points out, Songes and Sonettes was 'completely changed' and 'thoroughly revised.' Q2 was the text most likely read by the many editors, authors, and printers who compiled poetic collections in the Elizabethan period, including Sir Philip Sidney, Edmund Spenser, and William Shakespeare. Modern readers, however, have had access only to Q1 in Rollins's Tottel's Miscellany (1929). This edition, based on Q2, thus provides readers with a copy of a text that has not been readily available since the latter half of the sixteenth century."--Jacket

On the laws and governance of England by John Fortescue( Book )

4 editions published between 1567 and 1573 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Counter Sir John Fortescue CJKB (c.1395-c.1477) was undoubtedly the foremost English political scientist of the fifteenth century. This convenient volume brings together for the first time new editions of his two major works - In Praise of the Laws of England and The Governance of England - with references and suggestions for further reading for the student. In her introduction, Shelley Lockwood presents a clear reassessment of the work of John Fortescue and places these key texts in their historical and intellectual contexts. These works, arguably the earliest in English political thought, were written from the perspective of a self-consciously analytical and highly experienced lawyer and government official during a time of war and political upheaval. They form a coherent argument for justice against tyranny and afford unique insights into the law and governance of fifteenth-century England."--Pub
