Notes: Author given as 'Infelice Academico Ignoto' on title page. For the attribution to Niccols, see ODNB. Prose funeral oration mourning Elizabeth I's death. Verse elegy for Elizabeth I: 'A true Subject's sorowe, for the losse of his late Soveraigne'. Prose account of the order of Elizabeth's funeral procession, with a verse preface. For an edition of this text, see Nichols, IV, pp. 234-245. The same text was printed at the back of Henry Petowe's 'Elizabetha quasi vivens' [see STC 19804] and Henry Chettle's 'England's mourning garment' [see STC 5121 and 5122]. The printer of Petowe's work, Matthew Law, was fined for pirating the order of the funeral that had been produced by Thomas Millington, the publisher of Chettle's work [Nichols, IV, p. 234]. Final sentence of the work celebrates James I: 'Vivat Jacobus: Angliae, Scotiae, Franciae et Hiberniae Rex'.
