'Manuscript pieces by P. H[omer],' preceded by a printed copy of his Anthologia (Lond., 1789, 4°): minor poems, partly about members of the Wheler family of Leamington Hastings, composed about 1789-1795.

The volume may be a copy, as the writer was not likely to call a friend and member of his own college William Birch, instead of Walter (p. 60).

A full list is in manuscript in the Library.
