Edinburgh University Library, MS Dc. 1. 3/1 (Ed3)

The first part (pp. 1–112) of a MS in a single professional hand, divided into six free-standing collections of verse with their own title pages but continuous pagination. Evidently the archival record of a scriptorium or a copy of that record. The first section lacks a Table. Written in Scotland by a local scribe circa 1680. Scribal idiosyncrasies include `the’ for `thee’ and vice versa; `the’ and `ye’ used interchangeably; `q’ for `wh’ as in `qo’ = `who’; and `yr’ standing for either `your’ or `their’.

A pox of all plots it’s the national evil Ed3*157 (p. 112)
The loyal Lord Mayor and his brethren the Tories

Here lies on her back as still fucking she lay Ed3*158 (p. 112)
She’ll have at the least if she don’t rise again
<An epitaph on the lady E. J.>

Hence hence thou vain fantastic fear Ed3*159 (p. 112)
And wonder what it is we do

There’s none but the traitor rejoins at the gallows Ed3*160 (p. 112)
As freely as Strephon to Celia’s arms
<The Padders song>

O the plot’s discoverers Oates Bedloe Dugdale Pranee Ed3*161
Till Oates and he are hanged
<Song [probably incomplete, page left blank after 17 lines]>
