From the cover: “Based this edition of the poems on his Oxford English Texts edition (1912), the text of which it reproduces with certain corrections. It contains all the poems believed to be genuine with, in an appendix, those which were attributed to Donne so early and for so long that it did not seem justifiable to omit them altogether. A number of poems tentatively assigned to Donne by modem editors have been omitted. The textual notes record the variants of the old editions with indications of the manuscript evidence.”
