Elizabeth Jane Weston was a poet who lived much of her life at Prague and published volumes of Latin verse as well as her correspondence with European humanists. A Latin poem addressed to the reader has been independently added in manuscript to two known exempla of her Parthenica (WeE 1-2). Out of all her correspondence, one original letter by her, presumably autograph, is recorded as preserved in the Bavarian State Library in Munich (*WeE 3).
