1824 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Robert Allott

Robert Watt, in Bibliotheca Britannica (1824) 1:23.



Of this Author nothing is now known, except his being the Compiler of the work undermentioned. — England's Parnassus, or the Choicest Flowers of our modern Poets.... This work is priced in some Catalogues as high as 20. It is valuable, not only on account of its variety, but also on account of its intrinsic worth, as a Compilation pretty ingeniously executed, and which has preserved Specimens of Poetry, extracted from early Authors, who have long since sunk into unmerited oblivion. Mr. Park is now reprinting this Collection entire in Heliconia.
