Sotheran, £,45 [This MS. was formerly in the Dering Collection, and is partly in the autograph of Sir James Tyrrell, the Whig Historian of England (born in 1642). There are Basse's famous lines “V pon poet Shakespeare,” beginning “Renowned Spencer lye a thought more nigh"; pieces on Prince Henry and Arabella Stuart, and the famous “Under

neath this marble hearse” (verses on the death of the
Countess of Pembroke, the mother of Shakespeare's
patrons, which are ascribed to Ben Jonson); some pieces
signed by W. S., one signed J. M., Corbet's Northern
Voyage, Ben Jonson to King James, and his “Drink to me
only," upon the death of Beaumont the dramatist; and a
large quantity of pieces by Corbet, King and others. It
is well known that Basse's verses were first printed in
Donne's Poems, 1633, afterwards in Shakespeare's Poems,
1640, and in one or two subsequent publications. Copies,
too, exist in manuscript, two of which are printed in
Shakespeare's Centurie of Prayse. The Tyrrell Manu-
script differs somewhat from all the versions, either printed
or manuscript, which can be traced. Basse's lines are here
transcribed, and the variations from the Donne copy are
italicised. Students can themselves compare the Tyrrell
version with the others which are recorded.

“Renowned Spencer lye a thought more nigh

To learned Chaucer, and rare Beaumont lye
A little neerer Spencer, to make roome
For Shakespeare in your threefold fourefold Tombe.
To lodge all foure in one bed make a shift
Untill Doomesday, for hardly will a fift
Betwixt this day and that by Fate bee slaine,
For whom the Curtaine may bee drawne againe.
If your precedency in death doe barr
A fourth place in your sacred Sepulchre
Under this carved Marble of thine owne,
Sleepe brave tragedian Shakespeare, sleepe alone,
Thy unmolested peace, unshared cave
Possese as Lord, not Tenaunt of thy grave,

[These two lines are omitted in Donne.] That unto others, or us it may

bee Honour hereafter to bee laid by thee.”
