Poems by Wykehamists (present and past) on the intended visit of queen Elizabeth to Winchester and the South of England. The verses are chiefly Latin, with authors' names which indicate a date about A.D. 1600 or shortly after: this is a copy of the collection, perhaps imperfect at beginning. A few are Greek, and some in fantastic forms, as an altar, crown, etc.

The editor seems to be John Reynolds, (probably the John Reynolds who was scholar of Winchester College in 1597, Fellow of New College, Oxford, 1602-14).
