Bibliographic details:
BL Copy has multiple manuscript annotations; a number of poems in this copy have been crossed out - see details in poem contents list. According to librarian / collector's note on flyleaf said corrections are 'probably for a new edition.' The printing of the number '999!' beneath epigram no. on p.23 LXXVII (and the MS annotation 'words') may indicate that this is in fact a proof, as may its sloppy trimming and binding. However, '999!' is also present in the Folger copy.
Comments:
Place: place of publication given as Pater-Noster Row i.e. London. Query: Do we need miscellany genre/category 'Collection of epigrams'? Genre: Collection of epigrams
