Also useful are the versions at UCSB online. Check out EBBA 35480. That version has 16 stanzas as opposed to Brooksby, Deacon, Blare & Back version which only has 15. The 16 st version was the one reprinted by other printers in the 17th century. Andrew Clarke nr Tower Hill dates are 1674-8, earlier than the Brooksby impression. (EBBA has no dates for Clarke)
