THIS index lists all Whythorne's known poems, together with a few other verses found in his Autobiography. The spelling is taken from the manuscript, except for the verses found only in his printed volumes of 1571 and 1590. The number of known lines of each poem is given in parenthesis: where the number in a printed source differs it is noted in parentheses after the appropriate reference.
The first column gives the page-number where the poem appears in this edition of the Autobiography.
The second column gives the location of vFerses printed in Whythorne's 1571 Songes, using the foliation of the Triplex part-book.
The third column gives the location of verses printed in the 1590 Duos, but here the figure shows the number of the piece in the Cantus part-book.
The fourth column contains brief notes, such as psalm-numbers given by Whythorne and identification of verses not by him. The symbol PW indicates songs included in Peter Warlock edition, Oxford, 1927.
