Overview

A Poem for the Anniversary of the Gunpowder Plot: Rome Brought to Bed in England with Whores Miscarrying is a poem commemorating England's defeat of Guy Fawke's Gun Powder Plot on November 5, 1605. The poem was published in England in 1640 by the anonymous authors "A.B.C.D.E." and under the original title, "Novembris Monstrum, or Rome brought to bed in England with whores miscarying made long since for the anniversary solemnity on the fifth day of November, in a private colledge in Cambridge, by A.B.C.D.E.; and now by conquering importunity made publique, for a small memoriall of England's great deliverance from the powder-treason by E.M.A.D.O.C."

The first portion of this book is entitled Proditionis Conceptus and is attributed to the anonymous authors "E.M.A.D.O.C." It is said to be a memorial for "England's deliverance from the powder treason."

This edition of the poem contains considerable lacunae, since some of the book appears to be missing. The first part of this book contains the Proditionis Conceptus and the second, the Novembris Monstrum, or the main title piece of this work.
