Subject:        A Sonnet Sequence from the Countesse of Mountgomeries Urania

Yesterday, after reading Mike Jensen's post regarding a new paperback
edition of Cary's *The
Tragedy of Mariam*:

>SHAKSPERans will want to know a new edition of Elizabeth Cary's *The
>Tragedy of Mariam* has been published.  It has a 2000 copyright, though
>it has only just turned up in my campus bookstore.

I was looking for e-books for my Palm Pilot and discovered that The
University of Virginia's text archive --
http://etext.lib.virginia.edu/ebooks/ -- has electronic copies of Lady
Mary Wroth *Pamphilia, to Amphilanthus: A Sonnet Sequence from the
Countesse of Mountgomeries Urania* (1621) for Microsoft Reader, Palm,
and the web:

Note: The text for this etext edition was transcribed by Richard Bear
and proofread by Richard Bear and Micah Bear, and follows that of the
printed Mariott and Grismand text of 1621, as found in the copy in the
collection of the Folger Shakespeare Library. The editor wishes to thank
the Folger Library for permission to use the text of their copy, and
also thanks Professor Casey Charles for valuable suggestions concerning
the Introduction.

Italics found in the original have not been indicated here. Long "s"has
been silently emended to short "s"; however, seventeenth century usage
of "i" for "j" and of "u" and "v" have been retained. Catchwords have
been eliminated. Probable typographical errors and compositor's
misreadings have been enclosed in brackets, and emendations for these,
based on Josephine Roberts' reading of Lady Mary's manuscript, are
suggested in the right-hand margin. Pagination follows that of the
compositor, who is sometimes in error, and is indicated within angled
brackets, also in the right-hand margin. Endnotes are indicated within
the text by numbers enclosed within braces. It is possible that these
notes and marginalia may interfere with string searches and vocabulary
analyses; do feel free to make working copies from which you may remove
extraneous matter. This file may be distributed freely for nonprofit,
scholarship, and teaching purposes only.

Copies distributed offsite should remain unchanged and include this
paragraph. Please direct enquiries, comments and especially corrections
