MS ANNOTATION: p.23. 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). PLATES: Facing title page, engraved and designed by Simon Gribelin. This plate appears in the 1696 (BL C.69.b.14), 1706 (BL 11626.b.45), 1707 (Harvard EC7 P5464 705mc), and 1708 (BL 1568/4821) editions now extant. Presumably Playford owned the plate and passed either it or several offprints on to Bragge in 1705. CONTENTS: Prose items, pp. 38-40 (part II).
Other matter:
Dedication to the Duchess of Rutland (sigs. Ar-Av)
