Bibliographic details:
Mispagination: 109 mispaginated as 119. Pagination as given ignores the misbinding issues in BOD Vet. A4 e.971 described below. In BOD Vet. A4 e.971, T144919 (Poems on Affairs of State) is bound up with T144983 (State-Poems; Continued). The volume has been mis-bound, and the front matter from 'State-Poems; Continued' (T144983 sigs.A-A4v) has been placed at the front of the volume erroneously. The front matter for Poems on affairs of State (T144919 sigs.A-A4v) precedes State-Poems Continued. Further, the binder has mixed up sigs.R-R4v of T144919 with sigs.A-A4v of T144983, which may be described as follows: T144919sigs.R-Rv; T144983sigs.A-A2v; T144919sigs.R2-R3v; T144983sigs.A3-A4v; T144919sigs.R4-R4v. The problem may have been enabled by the fact that sigs. A-A4v of both items (and sig.R-R4v of T144919) were printed as halfsheets? As in 1702 edition of POAS vol. I, there is a pagination error at p. 224 - the following page is misnumbered as p. 245 and pagination continues sequentially thereafter. The text is uninterrupted.
Other matter:
Prefatory matter: Short preface praising the contents and justifying appearance as an anti-absolutist gesture [4pp]. Followed by index [2pp]. End matter: Advertisement, [1pp.]
