Save to active project

NOTE.

THis edition contains the whole of Crashaw's Poems, English and Latin, now for the first time collected in one volume.

Although not ' English Classics,' it has been thought best to include Crashaw's Latin and Greek poems, for completeness' sake. These are reproduced faithfully from the original issues printed at the Cambridge University Press in 1634 and 1670 and from photographs of the Sancroft MS. No attempt has been made to " improve" Crashaw's spelling or punctuation save in the one or two trifling instances mentioned in the notes, and save in the use of the modern type-forms for j, s, u, m, etc.

The arrangement of the text is as follows:

I. Epigrammatum Sacrorum Liber, from the volume (5

× 3 ins.) of 1634. A few additional epigrams that occur in the second edition of 1670 will be found on pp. 299—306.

II. Steps to the Temple and The Delights of the Muses. The text of 1648 (5

x 3 ins.) has been followed, but only those poems have been printed which were not revised at a later date for the volume entitled Carmen Deo Nostro, 1652 (see III. below). The text of the first edition of Steps to the Temple. Sacred Poems, with other Delights of the Muses. . . Printed and Published according to Order. . . Printed by T. W. for
