Title: Poems. By *****
Description: London: Printed for R. Dodsley..., 1752. FIRST COLLECTED EDITION. 8vo, 173 x 105 mms., pp. [iv], 194, [2], with H5 and H6 in cancelled state. BOUND WITH: [TOMKIS (Thomas)]: Albumazar: A Comedy. As it is Acted at the Theatre Royal in Drury-Lane. London: Printed for R. Dodsley..., 1747. 12mo, 173 x 105 mms., pp. 96. 2 volumes in 1, bound in contemporary calf, spine gilt in compartments; top of spine chipped, lacks label. The first poem in the volume by Jenyns (1704 - 1787) is "The Art of Dancing," published in 1729 (some sources give 1727, but the earliest copy recorded in ESTC is dated 1729), an instructive poem doubtless of some use to those just learning to dance. There seems to be no clear reason for binding Jenyns' poems with Tomkis' Albumazar, which was first published in 1615. In the 19th century it was occasionally attributed to Shakespeare.
