Passionate Pilgrim, The by SHAKESPEARE, William



The Passionate Pilgrim was published by William Jaggard, later the publisher of Shakespeares First Folio. The first edition survives only in a single fragmentary copy; its date cannot be fixed with certainty since its title page is missing, though many scholars judge it likely to be from 1599, the year the second edition appeared with the attribution to Shakespeare. This version of The Passionate Pilgrim, contains 15 romantic sonnets and short poems. The works contained, while disputed as to authorship, are in this writers most humble opinion among the best of the age. (Summary by Caliban and Wikipedia)
