Miscellany poems : containing various kinds of poetry collected from the most eminent poets with some originals never publish'd. / By Eliz. Munbee, vol. ye 3d. 1745.

Manuscript commonplace book compiled in 1745 by Elizabeth Munbee and containing miscellaneous poetry written by a number of authors. The entire text is written in a fair, neat hand. Samuel Wesley, Jonathan Swift, Alexander Pope, and Nicholas Rowe are among the poets included. The volume's title page enumerates this as the 3rd volume of Munbee's miscellany, but this is the only volume extant and in the Clark Library's collections.
