"The book is justly commended for the beauty of its typographical execution; indeed it may be questioned whether any contemporaneous production of the foreign presses exceed it, in the regularity of the register, and lustre of the ink."-Dibdin's Ames. Very few perfect copies are known, and though a fairly common book in a very imperfect state, it is but seldom met with as complete as the above.

The following note is written on one of the fly-leaves: "This Copy of Niccols's
Mirrour for Magistrates once belonged to David Garrick Esqr. Mr Reed of Staple's
Inn informed me that he saw Mr Garrick write the initial letters D: G: which are at
the top of the Title-Page-G. L. Way, 1782."

COLLATION: A, 8 leaves; B, 2 leaves; C-Llle in eights. Both the above copies
have the dedicatory sonnet to the Earl of Nottingham at the beginning of the Winter
Night's Vision. It was suppressed and is seldom seen.

Richard Niccols compiled all the preceding editions of the Mirror in one uniform edition, lightly varied from the standard edition of 1587-78 (as he curtailed and rejected some pieces), and added his own two compositions—“ A winter Night's Vision" and England's Eliza."
