COLLATION : A 4 leaves ; B-O in eights ; and P 4 leaves.--The title is fol. lowed by a dedication in prose to the Countess of Bedford, and another in verse to Lady Anne Harrington. Then comes a preface to the Reader in which he complains of a surreptitious second edition of his Gaveston in or since 1594, which was to have been succeeded by a surreptitious third edition, if he had not here forestalled the pirates by reissuing it himself in proper form at the end of his Robert-now printed for the first time, and his Matilda, now printed for the second time. The preface is followed by a leaf of argument of Robert, then the text, consisting of 203 stanzus on 34 leaves ; a leaf of the argument of Matilda ; the text, 185 stanzas on 31 leaves ; a leaf of the Argument of Gaveston ; the text, 309 stanzas on 39 leaves ; finally two leaves containing complimentary verses by H. G., R. L., and Mirocinius.

The work appeared originally in 1569, but of that impression only a single copy is extant, which is now in the Royal Library. This second edition is therefore the earliest that can be purchased, but is itself so scarce that few collectors have been able to meet with it.
The Address to the Reader is signed by Richard Daye who compiled the book, and who caused it to be brought out in a form somewhat resembling the Books of Hours printed in France between 1500 and 1550. The small woodcuts in the borders form series of illustrations tv the Old and the New Testament, with a text printed in minute characters beneath each ; and include also allegorical figures, and a Dance of Death in 75 different designs (which are multiplied by repetition.)
COLLATION : Siguatures in 4 leares, A 2 leaves, B-Y and Aa-Oo in fours 146 leaves.
The designer or engraver of the woodcuts was 1. C., whose monogram appears in several of the borders on three forms : IC, I SOC, and C. He has not been identified,
