Bibliographic details:
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. 57-61, 72, 251, 289-293 (including two additional stanzas).
Comments:
Separated into three books: 'Book the First', 'Book the Second' and 'Book the Third'. With glossary (pp. 372-383). Illustrations: title page, 1, 103, 259 & 384. Contents: Latin verse p. 133; French verse p. 270. Repeat pages: 64-65. Mispaginations: '451' for p. 145, '351' for p. 153, '296' for p. 299; p. 129 follows p. 112. 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. Query: pp. 202-203 ('XV. A Sonnet By Q. Elizabeth') are missing from ECCO copy: data from verse on these pages needs to be supplied from hardcopy.
Other matter:
Prefatory: contents and epigraph from Selden's Table-Talk [4pp]. End matter: postscript and musical notation for p. 24 [2pp].
