Poems on affairs of state, from the reign of K. James the first, to this present year 1703.

Vol. II ([London], 1703)

This is the form in which this collection is usually consulted as the second volume of the four-volume POAS set of 1703–7. The texts of the entire set may be read and searched on the LION and ECCO digital databases. 1703–07’s attributions should be treated with caution.. Its texts of lampoons were often from late and corrupt MS sources, which were then polished and sanitised for their print appearance; however, this was the only form in which they were generally known prior to the appearance of the seven-volume Yale U.P. POAS of 1963–75.
