Joseph Ritson, Bibliographia Poetica (1802) 171 & n.



HENOCH CLAPHAM wrote Bibliotheca theologica; or, a library theological, containing, 1. A general analysis or resolution: 2. A briefe elucidation off the most sacred characters of Elohim his bible: drawen for the use of the poorer sorte, unable to purchase variety off holy men their wrytinges. Imprinted at Amstelrodam, anno 1597. 4to. It consists, beside the proem, of an analysis or elucidation of the first 14 chapters of Genesis, and breaks off abruptly. His Briefe of the bible, drawn first into English poesy, and then illustrated by apt annotations, &c. was printed at Edin. by R. Waldgrave, 1596, 8vo.

Aelohim Triuno, displayed by his workes physicall and metaphysicall, in a poeme of diverse forme: adapted to the Hebrue text, the frame of divinitie, and catholike exposition, by Henoch Clapham, 1601, 4to. The same writer has a copy of verses before "The olive leafe, or universal A, b, c." 1603. T. P.
