The Holgate miscellany is a handwritten commonplace book created, probably, by William Holgate, who lived in and around Saffron Walden, Essex in the early seventeenth century.

It is mainly poetry, but there is some prose. Noted poets include Donne, Shakespeare, Carew, Ralegh, and Jonson, as well as some lesser known poets such as Corbett, Strode, King, Drayton, Dekker, Wotton, and King James.

Many poems - often anonymous - are published for the first time in this edition, and therefore give scholars  a chance to write on works that have yet to receive any critical attention.
