Printed by E. Cotes for Henry Brome at the Gun in Ivy-lane, 1664. - The poet and translator Charles Cotton (1630- 87) , best remembered as friend of Izaak Walton and co-author of The Universal Angler (1676) , was at the centre of a small literary coterie on the Derbyshire-Staffordshire border and was himself a prolific writer. His translations included the essays of Montaigne ( 1685) , which was frequently reprinted, and among his original verse writings his robust burlesque of Virgil, Scarronides (1664) , proved especially popular, going through numerous editions. His miscellaneous poems were largely unpublished in his lifetime, though preserved in a manuscript kept by his friends, and were posthumously published in 1689. - REFERENCES: Pforzheimer 222; Wing C6391; ESTCR215032.; 8vo; [4], 112 pages
