Lambard, William, The Perambulation of Kent (1596)

"In Laudem Authoris huis Libri, carmen saphicum

Fama per latum vaga, clara spargens
Facta per orbem.
Cantii splendor, patriae decusa
Vir bonus, nulli pietate cedens
Qui deo fideus, arrimam beatam
Reddidit illia.
Dignum Laude virum Musa vetat mori AWG [(Adam Winthrop Gentleman])
elsewhere AW uses a blank page to write:
