That poem never did much for me, but I'm open to instruction.  There are
three new dedicatory verses in the Second Folio--Milton's, the long
interesting one labeled "I.M.S." and the effigies one you mention.  For
Douglas Lanier they all seek to recover a sense of the living person
Shakespeare.  See "Encrytpions," _Reading and Writing in Shakespeare_,
ed David Bergeron, Associated University Presses, 1996.  I do not know
of any attributions of "Upon the Effigies," but "I.M.S.", if that refers
to a name, may have been Jasper Mayne.

Regards,
Charles

Re. poem in Second Folio, "Shakespeare, an Illustrated Dictionary" has
this:

Milton, John...English poet; his first published poem was his sonnet 'An
Epitaph on the Admirable Dramatic Poet, W. Shakespeare', printed
anonymously in the Second Folio* (1632)".
