CONTENTS: Prose pp.38-40. MISCELLANY SERIES: This series (Miscellanea Sacra) appears to have commenced in 1696 with a collection edited by Nahum Tate and published by Henry Playford (also involved in 1705 edition, when Benjamin Bragg seems to join the enterprise). The 1696 edition was reissued in 1698. it doesn't appear to be a scheme that ever went well (ESTC notes that 1696 was conceived as an annual miscellany but abandoned - until revived again in 1705).
