| Wood in AthenÆ states that Olor Iscanus (i. e. Henry Vaughan) had not included this in the list of his brother's books, and so he assigns it to some other. Its whole substance and style are in accord with his previous writings, and it might readily be by inadvertence omitted.

2 Mr. Lyte dates this 1653, but I believe this to be a mistake. My copy is of 1671 without any intimation of a prior edition.
