Bibliographic details:
Titles for individual fables included under general headings of 'Aesop at Tunbridge; or a few Select Fables in Verse' (pp.47-61) and 'Several other Fables on State-Affairs.' (pp.61-105) are partly in gothic type.
Other matter:
Preface highlights volume as second vol. of POAS, apologises for poems not being in chronological order. Declares political impartiality and claims historical value for poems. Finally suggests that the volume saves readers the charge and expense of collecting their own poems (iii-iv); 'A Table of all the Poems contain'd in this Second Volume.' (v-xii). Postscript (p.469) introducing final poem poem ('And must the hero that redeem'd our land') and claiming that it should have been inserted next to the poem it responds to, at p.432.
