Categories: James I

Notes: Imprint reads 'Excudebat Josephus Barnesius' [ie. printed by Joseph Barnes]. Joseph Barnes's son, Robert, is one of the contributors to this volume. Both Oxford and Cambridge produced volumes of verse commemorating the 1603 succession. Whilst Cambridge produced a single volume designed both to mourn Elizabeth I and celebrate James I [see STC 4493], along with an even shorter vernacular anthology [see STC 7598], Oxford produced two large volumes, one primarily designed to mourn the dead queen and another to celebrate the new king. This is the former of the two, although there are some verses that turn to celebrate James herein. Poems mainly in Latin, though with some in Greek, Hebrew, French and Italian. A fully edited text with translation can be found in 'Nichols', IV, pp. 389-734. NOTES ON CONTRIBUTORS: the John King here should not be confused with the John King who would go on to write a Latin elegy for James I in 1625; the Thomas Adams who contributes here is a different person to the Thomas Adams who preaches on the death of James in 1625; William Herbert in this anthology is not the poet of the same name whose poem 'Cadwallader' would be printed in 1604. A number of other contributors, though, did produce other works occasioned by this succession: Gabriel Powel, for example, dedicated anti-Catholic polemics to James and William Thorne's 'A kenning-glass' was dedicated to the new king. Many of the poets here also contributed verses to the second 1603 Oxford volume celebrating the accession of James I.
