Subject:        Lady Mary Wroth's Love's victory
 
Jan Stirm asks about finding a copy of the following:
 
            AUTHOR: Wroth, Mary, Lady, ca. 1586-ca. 1640.
             TITLE: [Love's victory]
                    Lady Mary Wroth's Love's victory : the Penshurst manuscript
                    / edited by Michael G. Brennan.
         PUBLISHED: London : Roxburghe Club, 1988.
  PHYSICAL DETAILS: xiv, 238 p. : facsims., 1 port. ; 31 cm.
 
     OTHER AUTHORS: Brennan, Michael G.
                    Roxburghe Club.
      OTHER TITLES: Love's victory.
 
          SUBJECTS: Wroth, Mary, Lady, ca. 1586-ca. 1640--Manuscripts--
                    Facsimiles.
                    Manuscripts, English--Facsimiles.
 
             NOTES: Facsimile and edited text of the Penshurst holograph on
                    facing pages.
                    Includes bibliographical references.
 
              LCCN: 90-112742
 
Not all libraries have this volume, which was not issued in an especially
numerous edition; but many do, and it may even still be found for sale in some
U.K. bookselling establishments.

I have to admit that I do not read this listserv on a regular basis, but my
friend Susan said there was a Mary Wroth question, so here I am.  Michael G.
Brennan edited the Penshurst copy of Love's Victory in 1988, but I am not sure
how widely held it is.  I know they have a copy of some sort at Ohio University
according to my investigations. I assume (but perhaps I should not)that there
will be a more accesible version someday.  For the time being, check out what
Brennan can do for you.  You may also want to connect with the Brown University
Women's project (I will mail you thier address as soon as I have it myself)
They can either send you a copy or tell you how to get one. Good luck with your
adventures with Mary Wroth.  She is worth every second of research (sorry about
the pun)

You might try the old Readex microprint collection "Three Centuries of English
and American Drama".  I would bet on something as big as UCLA (if I read your
address correctly) having it in the library.

Jan--
 
The original MS of Mary Wroth's *Love's Victory* is just across town from you,
at the Huntington Library (MS HM 600).  I've got a photographic copy of the MS,
purchased from the Huntington, that I am not allowed to reproduce; but the
folks over at the Huntington can accommodate you.  The MS is holograph in
Wroth's neat italic hand and quite easy to read.
 
The songs from *Love's Victory* are included in Jo Roberts impeccably edited
volume of *The Poems.*
