Notes: This work first appeared in a folio edition in 1603, which was re-issued [see STC 6258 and 6259]. Daniel had presented the poem to King James at Burley on the Hill in Rutland on the occasion of the king's progress from Scotland to London: the autograph manuscript survives in the Royal Collection of the British Library [ODNB]. Epigraph on title page: 'Carmen amat, quisquis carmine digna gerit' [Claudian, 'Stilicho', Bk.3, l.6]. Verse panegyric for James is followed by poems addressed to Thomas Egerton, Henry Howard, Margaret Countess of Cumberland, Lucy Countess of Bedford (whose influence had allowed Daniel to present the poem to James [ODNB]), Lady Anne Clifford and Henry Wriothesly. This edition also includes 'The passion of a distressed man' and 'A Defence of Ryme'.
