The Choise of Valentines
by Thomas Nashe
At some time in the early 1590s Nashe produced a bawdy poem, The Choice of Valentines, possibly for the private circle of Lord Strange. This circulated only in manuscript.
Excerpted from Thomas Nashe on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

This version was edited and annotated by John S. Farmer, London, 1899.
