"Read all about it. How to make love to the fair lady--in easy verse!" That's what the new book is about that the University Press is putting out next month.
Hyder E. Rollins, professor of English, is editing the new volume, containing a facsimile of the original book, "The Arbor of Amorous Devices." First published in 1597, this invaluable handbook has dwindled down to two copies, both carefully guarded in private libraries in England.
In the high-flown language of the day, the purpose of the book is set forth in the title pages: that "young gentlemen may read many pleasant fancies and fine devices, and thereon meditate divers sweet conceits to court the love of fair ladies and gentlewomen."
With the facsimile of the original volume, Professor Rollins is publishing editorial notes. Thus the work should be of value to many students.
