Book Description London, Written June XIII. MDCLX. and there Imprinted the same year [1660]., 1660. 8vo., pp. [12], 148, 151-166 (signatures and text continuous); title-page dusty and laid down (a little short at head, possibly supplied though we think not), but a good copy in nineteenth-century polished calf by Andrew Grieve of Edinburgh.The third of three editions in the same year, from an entirely new setting of type, with 'Glasse' rather than 'Glass' on the title-page, the errata formerly printed on L8 corrected, and the errors corrected in the caption title on p. 1 Wither, at odds with the authorities or the Stationers for most of his career, and a conspicuous supporter of Cromwell's government, expressed some apprehension at the Restoration. His attitude, particularly in the unpublished verses 'Vox Vulgi', led to a spell of imprisonment. Speculum Speculativum, however, written in verse throughout, is dedicated to the King ('If this Considering Glass comes accidentally to his View'), and there is a prefatory 'Expostulation of the Author with Himself', dated 13 December 1660, debating whether to publish or not ('It hath now six months been expos'd to show, / And some say Forth in publick let it go. / Some, cry, Conceal it; for it may undo thee, / Or at the best, bring outward mischief to thee').Wing W 3193; Wither to Prior 1065 note. Language: English. Seller Inventory # G1635
