OF

QUE EN ELIZABETH.

IN THREE VOLUMES.

VOL. I.

“ The splendor and magnificence of ELIZABETH's Reign is no where more strongly painted than in these little Diaries of some of her Summer Excursions to the houses of her Nobility ; nor could a more acceptable present be given to the world, than a re-publication of a select number of such details as this of the Entertainment at Elvetham, that at Killingworth, &c. &c. which so strongly mark the spirit of the times, and present us with scenes so very remote from modern manners." Percy's Reliques of Antient English Poetry, vol. III. p.

64.

*Ως ΚΕΙΝΗ σερί κήρι τετίμηται τε, και εστίν,
"Έκ λαών, οι μίν ρα, θεόν ως, εισορόωντες,
Δειδέχεται μύθοισιν, ότε στείχησανά άστυ.

Odyss. vii. 69.
When through the street she gracious deigns to move,
(The public wonder, and the public love,)
The tongues of all with transport sound her praise,
The eyes of all, as on a goddess, gaze.

Pope's Odyssey, ver. 90.
