Bibliographic details:
The note to the binder (in Vol. I) 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: p. 159 & p. 337 (including two additional stanzas).
Comments:
Separated into three books: 'Book the First', 'Book the Second' and 'Book the Third'. With glossary (pp. 324-331). Illustrations: title page, 1, 103, 213, 346. Contents: medieval verse p. xvii. Mispaginations: '260' for p. 206. 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: contents and epigraph from Addison's Spectator 70 [4pp]. End matter: additions and corrections for all three vols. [15pp].
