This is a DEFECTIVE copy, lacking leaf A5 (pages 9/10), and with damage to the lower inner part of leaf A4 (pages 7/8), with text loss to the lower quarter of the page. Also, trimmed a bit close, just touching on some of the page numbers at the top edge. The missing leaf is part of the first work; the second, A Satyr against Man [by Richard Ames], is complete. This booklet may have been extracted from the 1717 collection: 'A collection of the best English poetry, by several hands', published by T. Warner, which compiled a number of works printed earlier by Hills. Love Given Over was written by Gould in 1683, and Sylvia's Revenge was penned by Ames in 1688.
