Complete images of 190 manuscripts of 17th and 18th century verse held in the Brotherton Collection at the University of Leeds.
The manuscripts range from contemporary copies of poems by writers like Colvil, Dryden, Fairfax and Pope to popular tags and epitaphs.

One example is Lady Hester Pulter's Poems breathed forth by the nobel Hadassas - a collection of poetry, c.1645-1665, comprising a single volume and several loose sheets, predominantly in a scribal hand with insertions and revisions in two other hands, one perhaps autograph. It also includes part of a novel, The Unfortunate Florinda. Another example is a poetical commonplace book, in several hands, c.1740-1804, partly compiled by Eliza Marriott.
Particularly noteworthy for illustrations are Lt 50, William Tipping’s collection of religious poetry and accompanying pasted woodcuts; Lt 76, Translations from Ovid’s Metamorphoses; and Lt 68, Patrick Carey’s love poetry Ballades dedicated to the Lady Victoria
