Collection, A Collection of Miscellany Poems, never before Publish'd (London: H. Woodfall, 1737)

Information about the collection: Complete with a long list of subscribers, this is an interesting example of the self-effacing construction of authorship under the general category of "poems on several occasions." It contains a fair few poems subtitled "written by a lady," many "in imitiation of...", and the bulk in the epistolary mode. Will Laura want to make up a page about miscellanies?

From the Preface:  "Trifles of this kind are generally esteem'd or disapprov'd, according to the Merit of the Author, as we are conscious that we have no Title to the first, we shall be content if the Town on perusal doth not wholly do the latter....we have no Reputation as Authors, either to get or lose"
