*StW 1

Autograph, with one revision.

In: A quarto volume of autograph poems by Strode, 130 leaves (including 31 blank leaves, plus numerous blanks, stubs of five extracted leaves, and some leaves added later). A working autograph notebook of poems by Strode, compiled and revised over a considerable period, comprising 101 English poems (including draft fragments, 66 Latin poems and 2 Greek poems by him, together with his copies of a few poems by others (generally paired with Strode's translations or answers) including Richard Corbett (2), Thomas Carew, Peter Apsley, and Henry King and Henry Reynolds, as well as a lecture in Latin by the Professor of Greek at Oxford; ff. 52r-96r written in Strode's mixed secretary and italic hand, probably early 1620s-30; ff. 96v-129v, and afterwards ff. 1-51v, written in Strode's italic hand, probably for the most part c.1635-7, with additions up to 1643; ff. 129v-30v containing rough jottings in both styles; many of the poems containing Strode's extensive revisions, probably made from the 1630s onwards. c.1620s-43.

Some scribbling on the last page including the name John Herbert. Possibly one of the MS volumes by Strode which, according to Anthony Wood (Athenae Oxonienses, ed. Philip Bliss, 4 vols (London, 1813-20), III, 152), came after Strode's death into the hands of Dr Richard Gardiner (1591-1670), canon of Christ Church, and then into those of Richard Davies, Oxford bookseller (fl.1646-88). Afterwards acquired, probably from Davies between 1665 and 1675, by William Fulman (1632-88), Oxford antiquary, who added pagination, annotations and some further entries throughout.

Cited in IELM, II.ii (1993), as the ‘Corpus MS’: StW Δ 1. Collated in part in Dobell. Identified as autograph and discussed in M.C.

StW 6

Copy, headed ‘A song’.

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.

Including 22 poems (plus two of doubtful authorship) by Carew, 13 poems by King, and 24 poems (plus one of doubtful authorship) by Strode, and probably associated with Christ Church, Oxford. c.1633.
