'... a gentylmanly tretyse full convenyent for contemplatiff lovers ... made by a noble clerke Piers of Fulham...', an old English poem transcribed from a MS. in Trinity College, Cambridge, with some editorial notes.

This appears to be entirely in the handwriting of the rev. Charles Henry Hartshorne, who edited the poem in Ancient Metrical Tales (Lond., 1829) and implies in the printed preface that this transcript was made about five years before.
