Our learned Civilian died in his lodgings, at Doctors Commons, March 1st, 1660, and was buried at Fulham in Middlesex.Our authors first work, published in 1613, is the Poem which I have been induced to reprint, both from its merit, and its great rarity, [see Note]. The work is a succinct poetical account of the three quarters of the old Continent, after the method of the Periegesis of Dionysius. The general harmony of versification, displayed in this juvenile poem is conspicuous, considering the time in which our author lived: the variety of historical allusions, and the ingenious descriptions interspersed, lend to the poem a considerable interest, and I indulge a hope, that its republication may not be unacceptable to the curious reader, as supplying a small link in the chain of our earlier English poetry.The works of Dr. Zouche are the following: - I.
