Afterwards it was found to be so much liked by a few people who read it, that Mr. Collier was persuaded to publish and put his name to it. A new title-page was printed in 1825, the only difference being that he described it as " An Allegorical Poem," and that the author's name, I. Payne Collier, was inserted. There is also some change in the introduction, particularly by the insertion of a translation of one of Ariosto's Capitoli Amorosi. It was advertised in a few newspapers, but the advertisement was recalled instantly, as the author repented of what he had done, and not a copy was sold. Of the one hundred copies originally printed, eighty-five were destroyed.
