  • "Leycesters common-wealth" 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
  • "Leycesters ghost," 35, [1] pages at end, a poetical paraphrase by Thomas Rogers of Leycesters common-wealth, appears in some variants of both the octavo and quarto editions
