1814 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. Michael Tyson

George Dyer, in History of the University and Colleges of Cambridge (1814) 2:131.



Mr. Michael Tyson, fellow, should have been mentioned, being well known in the circle of antiquaries: he was, also, an artist. I am not however aware that he published any thing except a Short Account of an Illuminated MS. in the Library of Bene't College, and something in the Archeologia. In a letter of Lord Orford's, in Nichols's Literary Anecdotes, Vol. IV. p. 708, mention is made of his History of Dresses and Fashions. He took the degree of A.M. 1767.
