Manuscript transmission was a perfect fit for the scandalous elite of Restoration England. In this sense, manuscript transmission embodied the libertine ideals of inconstancy and promiscuity.

Many ‘catch-all’ manuscript miscellanies, like this one, immerse poems in a varied textual environment. Others manuscripts, however, contain only or almost exclusively poems. One of the most popular poems in manuscript collections was the beautiful elegy Henry King wrote on the occasion of his wife’s death, ‘An Exequy to his Matchless never to be forgotten Freind’ (‘Accept, thou Shrine of my Dead Saint’).
Henry King is remembered primarily for a single poem, The Exequy, on Anne Berkeley his deceased first wife, written about 1624. It may be considered one of the purest and most moving poems written in the 17th century. In it he adapts John Donne's manner with impressive skill and individuality lamenting Anne's death. King was an amateur poet (like most of his time), who had a tender heart, a tranquil mind, and a perfect sense of rhyme and rhythm, which made him at his best among the best of the minor poets of that age. Very few in Early English poetry stand above him.

From there it circulated widely in print and to a lesser extent in manuscript for more than a century.
