John Donne (1572–1631).  The Poems of John Donne.  1896.
Hexastichon Bibliopolae
I SEE 1 in his last preach’d and printed book,
His picture in a sheet; in Paul’s I look,
And see his statue in a sheet of stone,
And sure his body in the grave hath one;
Those sheets present him dead; these if you buy,        5
You have him living to eternity.
JO. MAR[RIOT].    
Note 1. From the edition of 1633. [back]
