This thesis examines the publication of Rochester's poems from their entry into print in 1680 to the first successful King's Bench prosecution for obscene libel in 1728. It combines critical readings of particular poems with detailed bibliographical analysis of the printing processes that produced them. Historical investigation of the changes that took place in publishing and press-control during this period explain the processes of transformation undergone by the poems in their successive reprintings.
