Every author hopes to fill a niche. Baue gives researchers for the first time a first-line index of English poetry to 1640. Thoroughly researched and documented, Baue's catalog and index takes as its starting point Arthur E. Case's A Bibliography of English Poetical Miscellanies, 1521-1750 (1935). Baue explains in his introduction his use of similar resources in the field and the niche his work fills. Unlike Case, Baue excludes polyglot anthologies, focusing only on English; Case, though, did not provide first lines. Baue also cites as a source William A. Ringler Jr.'s Bibliography and Index of English Verse Printed 1476-1558 (CH, Sep'89), which provided first lines but excluded Elizabethan anthologies and did not cite accession numbers assigned by Pollard and Redgrave or University Microfilms International (UMI), as Baue does. Baue personally examined all 53 anthologies he cites, and his references will allow researchers to easily locate poems using UMI numbers and make comparisons with the editions he describes. Summing Up: Recommended. Academic libraries with research collections in English literature. D. D. Zimmerman formerly, Prairie View A&M University

Summaries
Bowker Data Service Summary
This is a comprehensive reference work on early English poetry anthologies - a bibliographical catalogue and an index of printed anthologies of English poetry to 1640.
Long Description
Early English poetry anthologies are important because they reflect the poetic taste of their age. While early anthologies reflected the native English poetic tradition, later anthologies revealed more of a Continental influence. This comprehensive reference work on those anthologies is both a bibliographical catalog and an exhaustive first-line index of printed anthologies of English poetry to 1640. The anthology fills gaps that others have left, covering subjects in their entirety and providing easy access for student and scholar alike. The author not only provides an overview of English poetry, relating it to larger critical issues such as authorship, style, and the manuscript culture, he has also divided the text into two main parts, both keyed to Pollard and Redgrave's Short-Title Catalogue (STC) and the University Microfilms Index (UMI). The first part of Baue's work is a catalog of bibliographical descriptions of the first editions of the anthologies, including SRC and UMI numbers. The second part is a comprehensive index of all of the first lines of the poems in all of the anthologies, including STC numbers for easy location. A short-title checklist of anthologies and their subsequent editions, including STC and UMI numbers for handy reference, rounds out this text. A resource for students working with Renaissance lyric poetry and useful for scholars in tracking the development of literary tastes over a critical century.
