Comments:
The preface presents the collection as the work of one translator - the author of the preface, signed 'S. B.' - though it is in fact a miscellany of new and previously printed translations, authored by Francis Willis, Abraham Cowley, John Oldham, and Thomas Wood (ESTC). For overviews of the Anacreontic tradition in English, see (1) Stuart Gillespie, 'The "Anacreontea" in English: A Checklist of Translations to 1900: With a Bibliography of Secondary Sources and Some Previously Unpublished Translations', Translation and Literature, 11 (2002), 149-173.
