Ill. = frontis. Foxon, I42 First published in 1697.’ Foxon 141 (1713 2nd Ed.) ‘Put here for convenience for though Tate’s preface to the 1st Ed. is here, he did not contribute to this 2nd Ed.’ The Author’s preface states that the poem was ‘the issue of my more juvenile Minutes ...’ going on to explain that he submitted it ‘to the censure of Mr Tate ...’ Tate’s preface begins ‘The copy of this poem being sent to me from the unknown author ...’ Wing is alone in attributing this work to Tate.
