John Lane

William Winstanley, Lives of the Most Famous English Poets (1687) 100.



One John Lane, whose Works though much better meriting than many that are in print, yet notwithstanding had the ill fate to be unpublish'd, but they are still reserved in Manuscript, namely, his Poetical Vision, his Alarm to the Poets, his Twelve Months, his Guy of Warwick, a Heroick Poem; and lastly, his Supplement to Chaucer's Squire's Tale.
