In 1587 William Camden (1551-1623), one of England’s most respected antiquaries, published his Britannia (ESTC), first in Latin, and then, beginning in 1610, in English. In 1605 he published out-takes from this magnum opus under the descriptive title, Remaines of a greater worke, concerning Britaine, the inhabitantes thereof, their languages, names, surnames, empreses, wise speeches, poësies, and epitaphes. Camden’s essay on “Poems,” in the Appendix, concludes with a list of recently-deceased and still living poets, including William Shakespeare. Camden expanded Remaines in its second edition (1614), adding an essay by Richard Carew which also mentions Shakespeare.
