A manuscript note on the fly leaf, probably by Michael Lort,
(whose copy it was) states that "Robert Allot, the editor, was
a Bookseller, living at the Black Bear in St. Paul's Church
Yard, 1631." This volume is one of considerable rarity and
interest, handing down to us specimens of many of our Eng-
lish Poets, which, but for the industry of the learned biblio-
polist, might have been for ever lost.
