Bibliographic details:
Note about mispagination on verso of title page. ESTC suggests: 'Possibly parts of a larger collection' and notes 'The mispagination is corrected in a note printed on the verso of the titlepage, but sig. K1-3 are missing and the work has a final catchword "Con" on p.188.' The catchword is explained by the transferral of the contents to the start of the book by the binder (Contents is followed by 'The END') - Perhaps the contents page is new (reflecting a decision to change / remove poems that leads to mispagination) - it is titled 'THE CONTENTS' and so the catchword on p. 188 should properly be 'THE', not 'Con'. Sig.L4 is missigned 'E4'.
Comments:
COMMENTS: Duplicate poem: poem 4060 appears twice, on pp. 17-8 and 187-8.
