Notes: Publishers given as W.F. and G.L. on title page; Furbrand and Loftus suggested by STC. The main poem, 'Ave Caesar', laments Elizabeth I and welcomes James I. Another poem, 'An Epitaph on the death of her most Royall Majestie', is printed in the middle of 'Ave Caesar', effectively acting as a hinge between mourning for Elizabeth and joy for James. The epitaph for Elizabeth is signed S.R.; for the attribution to Samuel Rowlands, on the grounds that the publishers also produced some of his other works, see 'Fugitive Tracts', p. vi.
