Prior: Lusus Westmonasteriensis

Lusus Westmonasteriensis by Robert Prior (1750)

This is a collection of epigrams from the Westminster School originally published by Prior in 1730. The headmaster of the School would set the theme and the students would compose. There is a follow-up volume also, containing longer poems which were the prologues and epilogues to the plays put on at the school: Lusus Alteri Westmonasterienses.
