Book Description

Text begins with A2, lacking both the letterpress and additional engraved title pages, but is otherwise complete, despite some eccentricities in pagination. Chips and nicks to some corners; old paper tape repairs to some tears; light staining to some pages; generally, a well-worn copy in the probable original binding. Notes and sums on remains of endpapers, with name of a former owner dated 1668. Wither was in London during the plague of 1625, and Britain's Remembrancer (running title Brittan’s remembrancer) is his voluminous poem on the subject, interspersed with denunciation of the wickedness of the times, and prophecies of the disasters about to fall upon England. It reflects on the nature of poetry and prophecy, and explores the current fault lines in politics.
