My booke hath bene so moch my pleasure

And thus my booke, hath bene so moch my pleasure, and bringeth dayly to me more pleasure and more, that in respect of it, all other pleasures, in very deede, be but trifles and troubles vnto me.

— Lady Jane Grey, quoted by Roger Ascham, The Scholemaster (1571)
