Note
  • "Leicester's commonwealth" is a Catholic recusant political tract against Elizabeth I's government, in particular the pro-Puritan policies of Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, who is portrayed as an amoral opportunist. It went through many stages and forms, both in manuscript and in print, and is most well known by the title "Leicester's commonwealth". It was first printed on the continent in 1584 with title "The copie of a leter, wryten by a master of arte of Cambridge, to his friend in London" (STC 5742.9). Formerly attributed to Robert Parsons (who denied authorship), it is also sometimes ascribed to Thomas Morgan; cf. ESTC. D.C. Peck's edition, 1985, attributes it to Sir Charles Arundell, assisted by a group of Roman Catholic laymen
  • "Leicester's ghost", a poetical paraphrase of "Leicester's commonwealth" by Thomas Rogers, has separate dated title page, pagination, and register. In this copy, leaf 2A1.2 is a cancel, the catchword at the foot of the title page verso reads "Ah" and the first line of the following page begins "Ah silly peasants ..."
  • Signatures: A-M8, 2A-2B8, 2C2
  • Errors in paging: numbers 81-88 repeated, 129-136 omitted.
  • The engraved frontispiece portrait of Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, is signed: W. Marshall sculpsit
  • Headpieces; initials
  • Leicester's common-wealth. London : [publisher not identified], 1641 -- Rogers, Thomas. Leicester's ghost.
