Name to fly leaf (C J W Bosanquet, author of 1855 travel journal in Wellcome Library MS 8767 - Cecilia Jane Wentworth Bosanquet who m. 1858 Horace James Smith). *The preface explains that this choice of poems came out in 1801 but that the author felt partly from her imperfection of youthful judgment, partly from the scarcity of materials she had included items which could with advantage be changed and that new authors have written material that she would like to include and other material that she had overlooked. This work is therefore enriched to such an extent that this revision is nearly a new collection with quite a substatial part left out and much that is newly added. All poems are attributed to their authors and several marked as original which may be by Lucy Aikin herself, written especially for this anthology.
