PsK 2

Copy in: An octavo verse miscellany, in a single informal hand, a member of St John's College, Oxford, i + 99 leaves, in half-vellum marbled boards. Including 19 poems by Habington and (ff. 8r-21r, 28v) 21 poems by Katherine Philips transcribed from a edited source. Late 17th century.

Later owned by Richard Rawlinson (1690-1755).

Cited in IELM, II.ii (1993), as ‘Rawlinson MS I’: PsK Δ 6.

PsK 3

Copy in: A folio verse miscellany, entitled ‘The Muse's Magazine, or Poeticall Miscelanies, in two parts’, in a single hand, 189 leaves. Including 27 poems by Cowley; eleven poems by Katherine Philips, evidently derived from printed sources; 10 poems by Rochester, as well as apocryphal items; twelve poems by Sedley, plus one of doubtful authorship; and 15 poems by Waller, evidently derived from printed sources. Early 18th century.

A note on a flyleaf relating to the bookseller John Dunton (1659-1733): ‘John Dunton His Book, for which Mr. Corbet at ye Addisons Head, accepted One Half Guinea in full Payment for it, as Witness my Hand, Hannah Rakley’. A note on f. 1: ‘Since I had transcrib'd this whole Book, I met with some state Poems of these later times, mostly since K. George's Accession to the Crown [1714] which I have here inserted, as a supplement to these state Poems which make a part of this Collection by themselves’. Date at the end of the volume: ‘1718’, and some notes on a flyleaf dated ‘1724’.

The ‘Mr. Corbet’ from whom Dunton purchased this MS was evidently the bookseller Thomas Corbett (fl. 1705-43), who ran his business at the Addison's Head, next to the Rose Tavern, without Temple Bar, from 1719 until his death in 1743. Neither Dunton nor Corbett are known to have used this MS for publication purposes.

Cited in IELM, II.ii (1993), as the ‘Dunton MS’: PsK Δ 8; RoJ Δ 4; SeC Δ 1; WaE Δ 10.

*PsK 7

Autograph.

In: A small octavo-size volume of autograph poems by Katherine Philips, written from both ends, originally on rectos only, 222 pages (including blanks, plus stubs of extracted leaves, some probably extracted by the poet herself to remove spoiled pages, some extracted after the poems were entered), in contemporary calf with blind-stamped initials ‘K.P.’ Comprising Philips's autograph corrected fair copies of 55 poems and titles only of two other poems, grouped according to subject and genre (and some alternate crowding and blank-spacing in the middle, as well as blocks of entries in different inks, showing a conscious attempt by the poet to preserve such units), with later notes and inscriptions in other hands, the latest poem dated 13 January 1657/8 (p. 125). c. late 1650s.

Two of the missing leaves from this volume — originally between the present pp. 88 and 89 and containing yet another poem — have now been identified at the University of Kentucky (see PsK 326). It is likely that a missing third leaf at this point would have contained A Dialogue between Lucasia and Orinda (‘Say, my Orinda, why so sad?’): see Hageman & Sununu, EMS, 4 (1993).

Later owned by William Hall (1748-1825), antiquary and bookseller in King's Lynn, Norfolk; in 1824 by Thomas George Kidd (1770-1850), headmaster of King's Lynn School; and c.1904 by John Ramsden Tutin (1855-1913), bookseller of Hull. Thomas (I, 42) reports that this MS passed through the hands of P. J. and A. E. Dobell in 1920, as did NLW MS 776B. However, it is clear from correspondence in the National Library of Wales that the Library acquired the MS directly from Tutin just before his death (which occurred on 13 December 1913).

Cited in IELM, II.ii (1993), as the ‘Tutin MS’: PsK Δ 1. Fifteen poems are edited from this MS in Tutin (1905). A facsimile of p. 55 of the MS appears as the frontispiece to his earlier edition of 1904 (see PsK 372).

This MS used extensively as copy-text in Thomas's edition (1990), and also in Mambretti's 1979 dissertation. Some poems edited from this MS in Hageman (1987), and a few poems printed from Thomas's edition (as presented earlier in his doctoral dissertation of 1982) in Kissing the Rod. Also briefly discussed in Elms (inaccurately), in Mambretti (1977), and in Lucy Brashear, ‘Gleanings from the Orinda Holograph’, AN&Q, 23 (1985), 100-2. For a facsimile of p. 101 (PsK 105), see IELM, II.ii, Facsimile VII, after p. xxi.

Edited from this MS in Tutin (1905), pp. 11-12, and in Thomas; discussed in Elmen.

National Library of Wales, NLW MS 775 B, pp. 129, 131.

PsK 8

Copy, headed ‘Of Humane Pleasure’.

In: A quarto volume of 96 poems (dating as late as July 1663) and two dramatic works by Katherine Philips, in a generally neat italic hand except for another hand on pp. 358-9, 404 pages (slightly misnumbered and including a number of blanks), in contemporary black leather blind-stamped. With a prose preface (pp. 5-7), subscribed ‘Polexr:’ [i.e. Polexander], dedicated ‘To the Excellent Rosania’ [i.e. Mary Aubrey], eulogising the friendship between her and the deceased Orinda [Katherine Philips] and Rosania's attendance at Orinda's fatal illness, mentioning that the subsequent collection (‘these clear streams’) was bequeathed to Rosania by the poet, noting her reluctance ‘To appear in Print’, but adding, ‘I confess, an Edition, now, would gratify her admirers’. c.1664.

The volume -- which notably lacks Philips's critical poem on Rosania, On Rosania's Apostacy, and Lucasia's Friendship, probably as an act of discretion by the compiler -- appears to be a copy of Katherine Philips's poems transcribed or edited from her papers shortly after her death and presented to Mary Aubrey (1631-1700), wife of William Montagu (1619?-1706), later Lord Chief Baron of the Exchequer, by a mutual friend in accordance with the poet's last wishes.

Owned in 1920 by P.J. and A.E. Dobell.

Cited in IELM, II.ii (1993), as the ‘Rosania MS’: PsK Δ 2. Collated, and very occasionally used as copy-text, in Thomas, and also in Mambretti's 1979 dissertation; some poems also in Hageman (1987). Briefly discussed in Elms; in Mambretti (1977) (where the name ‘Polexr:’ is misread as ‘Pole:r’ and identified as possibly Sir Charles Cottrell); and in C.A. Limbert, ‘Katherine Philips: Another Step-father and Another Sibling, “Mrs. C.P.”, and “Polexr:”’, Restoration, 13 (1989), 2-6.

Limbert suggests that Polexander might be Sir William Temple, the name perhaps deriving from Marin le Roy de Gomberville's romance Polexandre which Temple's wife, Dorothy Osborne, certainly read, and Temple was also author of a poem on Orinda's death: see William Roberts, ‘Sir William Temple on Orinda. Neglected Publications’, PBSA, 57 (19634), 328-36. See also Thomas, II, 177-8, where it is suggested ‘the name may indicate one of Cotterell's colleagues at the Hague’.

Discussed, with facsimiles of the cover and first page of the dedicatory epistle ‘To the Excellent Rosania’, in Elizabeth H. Hageman and Andrea Sununu, ‘“More Copies of it abroad than I could have imagin'd”: Further Manuscript Texts of Katherine Philips, the “Matchless Orinda”’, EMS, 5 (1995), 127-69 (pp. 147-50), and, with facsimiles of pp. 5, 7, 274, and the binding, in Peter Beal, In Praise of Scribes (1998), pp. 168-73.

This MS collated in Thomas; discussed in Elmen.

PsK 9

Copy in: A folio volume of 74 poems by Katherine Philips (not in chronological order, but relating in large part to PsK Δ 1), the latest poem dated October 1662 (p. 116), written throughout in the hand of her friend (the ‘noble Silvander’) Sir Edward Dering, second Baronet (1625-84), two further poems (on pp. 114-15) represented by titles only, iv + 120 pages (plus stubs of a few excised pages), in contemporary vellum. Thomas conjectures that this MS may have been transcribed by Dering from Katherine Philips's autograph texts at some time during her stay in Dublin, between July 1662 and July 1663, when Dering was there as Commissioner for the Settlement of Ireland. c.1662-3.

Puttick & Simpson's, 8 June 1858 (Dering sale), lot 1654, to Sir Thomas Phillipps, Bt (1792-1872), manuscript and book collector: Phillipps MS 14937. Sotheby's, 29 June 1965, lot 223, to El Dieff. Formerly Pre-1700 MS 151.

PsK 10

Copy in: A large folio verse miscellany, including (on pp. 1-88) 73 poems by Katherine Philips, dating as late as 1662, written in a single, neat non-professional hand, the remainder of the volume filled with other poems in several hands, viii + 140 pages (plus numerous blanks), in contemporary calf gilt, ‘A S’ in a gilt lozenge on each cover. The later additions partly compiled by George Clarke (1661-1736), politician and virtuoso (whose bookplate is inside the cover and whose family coat of arms is on f. [iv]), son of Sir William Clarke (1623?-66), Secretary of War to the Commonwealth and Charles II. c.1662[-1730s].

Inside the front cover inscribed ‘E[?] Barrow’, evidently a member of the family of Samuel Barrow (1625-82), Royal Physician and friend of John Milton, Barrow being the second husband of Sir William Clarke's widow, Dorothy (d.1695). Formerly MSS 6. 13.

Copy, subscribed ‘ORINDA’.

In: A small octavo verse miscellany, written from both ends, predominantly in a single hand in variant styles (ff. 1v-79v, 80r, 88v-96v, 119r-117r rev.), with additions in later hands (ff. 97r-104v, 116v-106r rev.), 164 leaves, in modern half red morocco. Inscribed (f. 1v, in a court hand) ‘Daniell Leare his Booke’, ‘witnesse William Strode’, and (f. 164r) ‘Mr Daniell Leare eius Liber’: i.e. compiled chiefly by Daniel Leare, a distant cousin of the poet William Strode, probably at Christ Church, Oxford, before he entered the Middle Temple in 1633. c.1633 [-late 17th century].

This suggestion, by Mary Hobbs, is supported by entries in the Caution Book of 1625-41 at Christ Church, where Strode is found (p. 22) paying £10 as college security for Leare and where Leare signs (p. 23) on this sum's repayment by Dr Fell on 13 May 1633. Forey suggests (p. lxxix) that he was the Daniell Leare of St Andrews, Holburne, whose will was proved in 1652; but it is more likely that he was the Daniel Leare to whom Henry King, Dean of Rochester, leased property at Chatham on 19 July 1655 (National Archives, Kew, SP 18/99/61). Daniel Leare's wife, Dorothy, was a member of the Hubert family with whom King was associated by virtue of the marriage of his sister Dorothy.

The volume includes 12 poems by Donne; 15 poems (plus a second copy of one and three of doubtful authorship) by Carew; 20 poems (plus two of uncertain authorship) by Corbett; and 84 poems (plus second copies of eight poems, four poems of doubtful authorship and some apocryphal poems) by Strode, the texts being closely related to, and in part probably transcribed from, the ‘Corpus MS’ of Strode's poems (StW Δ 1).

Inscribed also ‘John Leare’ (probably Daniel's younger brother); (f. 1r) ‘Anthony Euans his booke’ (who married Daniel Leare's niece Dorothy Leare in 1663); (f. 1v) ‘Alexander Croke his Book 1773’; and (f. 164v) ‘John Scott’ (who matriculated at Christ Church in 1632). Rimell & Son, 9 November 1878.

Cited in IELM, I.i (1980), and II.i-ii (1987-93), as the ‘Leare MS’: DnJ Δ 41, CwT Δ 15, CoR Δ 4, and StW Δ 10.

PsK 589.5

Inscribed ‘Katharine Philips’, another page containing later notes about her by Phineas Fowke, M.D.:‘This book I suppose was presented by ye Author to ye famous Orinda’ [hardly likely since Florio died in 1626 before she was born], ‘being found among her bookes of Italian & ffrench in wch she was admirably skilled, & was prsented me by her most deserveing Sister in law, Mris M. Philips. at Cardigan. A.D. 83’.

It is not clear how this volume came into Katherine Philips's hands, but it is a reminder of her knowledge of Italian (to her improvements in which in 1662-3 her letters refer repeatedly, while at least one of her songs — Amanti ch'in pianti &c. — is translated from that language). Moreover, (as Claudia Limbert has shown in Restoration, 13 (1989), 62-7) Philips's close friend Regina Collyer (whose mother's name was Anna Semiliano) was Italian.

In: Autograph MS of John Florio's Giardino di recreatione, including related poems in Italian and Latin by Florio and others in different hands, one (f. 12v) in the hand of the playwright Matthew Gwinne (1558-1627), and (ff. 6r-10r) Florio's dedication to Sir Edward Dyer dated 12 November 1582, 145 octavo leaves, in modern half blue morocco. 1582.

Once owned by Katherine Philips, the ‘Matchless Orinda’ (see PsK 589.5) from whom the MS passed to her sister-in-law M. Philips, who presented it to Phineas Fowke (1639-1710), physician. Inscribed (f. 3r) ‘Ex dono Gul: Oldys / Isaac Hard’: i.e. given by William Oldys (1696-1761), Norroy King of Arms, antiquary, to Sir Isaac Heard (1730-1822), Clarenceux King of Arms (and with his bookplate). Then owned by Benjamin Heywood Bright (1830-84), merchant and author. Sotheby's, 18 June 1844 (Bright sale), lot 98. Inscribed (ff. 1r-2r) by the Rev.
