The note to the binder reads: 'The Binder is desired to Notice that the marginal Numbers of the 1st and 3[r]d Volumes are wrong: that the Sheets marked Vol. I. are to be bound up as Volume The Third: and that those noted Vol. III. as Volume The First.' ESTC notes: 'Sig. B3 and T 6,7 of vol. 1, sig. N 7 of vol. 2 are said to be reprinted. At p.224 of vol. 3, eight leaves, paged [225]-[240], containing a ballad entitled ’George Barnwell’ are inserted'. ECCO copy (based on BL original) appears to include Percy's or another editor's handwritten notes: pp. 32-33, 124-125.
Comments:
Separated into three books: 'Book the First', 'Book the Second (Containing Ballads that illustrate Shakespeare.)' and 'Book the Third'. With glossary (pp. 330-344). Illustrations: title page, v, 1, 117, 231 & 344. Contents: Latin verse p. 108; Spanish verse pp. 318-322 (even pages). Attributions: although it cannot be said that Thomas Percy authored the poems contained in this miscellany (the only open instance of this being 'The Friar of Orders Gray'), he nevertheless had a significant hand in their eventual shape, editing according to his own aesthetic and intellectual principles.
Other matter:
Prefatory: dedication signed by Thomas Percy [4pp], preface [6pp], essay 'On the Ancient English Minstrels' [9pp], contents and epigraph from Sidney's Defence of Poetry [4pp]. End matter: errata [4pp], advertisement and note to binder [2pp].
