Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS. Eng. Poet. c. 18 (Oep18)

A late-seventeenth century scriptorium miscellany of state poems associated with the Cameron scriptorium. Oddities in order and the presence of blanks in mid-text suggest that the book was written in sheets and only later bound, with some miscalculations in process. Some mid-18th-century material added at end.
