1824 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. Theodore Bathurst

George Dyer, in Privileges of the University of Cambridge, Supplement (1824) 2:39.



Bathurst incepit in Art. 1609, proceeded D.D. 1628. Attwood's MS. His Latin Translation of the Shepherd's Calendar was first printed in 1653. In the elegant Latin life, in the edition of 1732, three errors are corrected relating to Spenser: 1st a date of his birth (in 1510), whereas, calculating from the University Register, it must have been about 1553; 2d, Camden's date of his death (de Monimentis Westm.), 1598, whereas, according to the English inscription on his monument, it was 1596; and 3d, Dr. Fuller's and Winstanley's, who confound the prose Elogium with an Epitaph.
