The First Edition. The occasion of this collection of verses
was the drowning of Edward King during his passage from
Chester in 1637, when the ship was lost in the Irish Sea and sev-
eral of the passengers perished. The verses were written in love
and remembrance by his sorrowing friends. The last piece in
the book entitled * * Lycidas ' ' and signed with the initials ' ' J. M., ' '
is by John Milton, and this is its first appearance in print.

8v o, contemporary sheep, uncut.

Collation: A, four leaves; A-H4, in eights; A-F4, in eights.

The first collected edition of Milton's poems, bearing his name
in full for the first time. The frontispiece portrait by Marshall
is the first published of Milton, aetat. 21, with a Greek inscription,
intended by the poet as a satire on Marshall for representing him
as older. Translated, it reads:

"Will anyone say that this portrait was the work of an in-
genious hand ; my very friends, looking at mine own natural coun-
tenance, know not whom it represents, but laugh at the awkward
imitation of the idiotic artist."

There are two varieties of title-page, with imprimatur con-
taining "S. Pauls" or " Pauls." There is nothing to show
priority, except that ' ' S. Pauls ' ' is rarer. The two parts of the
volume have separate pagination, with a separate title in Latin
for the second part.

This volume contains all the poems written by Milton up to
the date of its publication. Excepting 1 1 Lycidas, " * ' Comus, ' ' and
the epitaph on Shakespeare, all the pieces were here printed for
the first time.

This copy contains the bookplate of Edwd. Carleton Arundel.
On the fly-leaf is written "Edwd. Carleton 1738."
