    Discovered in the summer of 1992, MS Royal 17.B.XX is a scribal manuscript of Donne's 1622 Gunpowder Plot Anniversary sermon, corrected in his own hand. An invaluable contribution to Donne scholarship, this volume not only introduces the sermon in its textual and cultural contexts, but presents a photographic facsimile of the manuscript, with a complete transcription for each page, keyed to the earliest printed source (1649) and to the Potter and Simpson edition (1962).
