Abstract

Iolo Aneurin Williams (1890-1962) was an art historian and bibliographer, who penned such works as Early English Watercolours (1952), Seven Eighteenth-century Bibliographies (1924), and The Elements of Book Collecting (1927). In 1958, Esmond de Beer purchased from Williams his working collection of minor 18th century verse, some 1200 volumes. Forming part of the de Beer Collection, these works – ‘one man’s gatherings of lesser poets’ - were gifted to the University Library. Miscellanies feature, especially ‘Poems written on Several Occasions’. Mary Masters (c.1694-1759), a self-taught poet of humble birth, gained some attention by her association with Samuel Johnson. This is the first and only edition of her Poems on Several Occasions (1733).
