Abstract:

Manuscript, in a single hand, of a collection of 103 poems by various 17th- and 18th-century authors, both satirical and serious, on such subjects as love, beauty, writing, and religion. Unattributed verses include Some Verses made on the Dissenting Ministers. Found at Stamline Coffee House; On Seeing a Scull; To Miss Hy B-m with a Rose; An Idea of Wedlock Antient and Modern; The Dying Swan; The Poet and the Rose; and Morning Hymn. The volume also contains several Gospel Sonnets by Ralph Erskine, MA; other poets whose works appear in the volume include Joseph Addison, John Dryden, Wentworth Dillon, 4th earl of Roscommon, and Isaac Watts. Occasionally the copyist also notes the publication from which the poem was taken, as when he notes that Our Saviour's Visit appears in the Rev. Mr. Thomas Gibbons' Juvenile Poems, while several other poems have been taken from the Spectator.
