Tottell, 1557 Contains the eight leaves at the commencement sometimes deficient, which comprise the poems" Mayster Thomas More wrote in his youth for his pastime, viz.: a merry jest how a serjeant would learne to play the frere." Another of the poems was composed for a pageant representing the various ages of man's life, which Shakespeare no doubt must have perused, and on which he founded his celebrated description of the "Seven Ages." "A rueful lamentation of the Death of Queen Elizabeth, mother to the King Henry VIII, 1503," also the Life and Twelve Rules of John Picus, Earle of Mirandula." A printed facsimile title and two portraits of More are added.
