PREFACE. 

^HE lingular colteiftion of original bal- 
lads, briefly defcribed in the follow- 
ing pages, conlifts exclufively of 
pieces in the black-letter or old Eng- 
lifli type, nearly all of which belong, moreover, 
to that rareft and moft interefting clafs, the really 
vernacular fugitive ballads of the common peo- 
ple. There is a wide difference, noticed efpe- 
cially in fticet-ballads of the feventeenth century, 
between thofe which emanated from the more 
cultivated writers, and thofe which were the au- 
thentic produftions either of or written for the 
ftrect ballad-finger. The former are purer in 
their diftion, ufually more ambitious as to ty- 
pography, and are either not embclliftied with 
woodcuts, or, if lb, with illuftradons luperlor to 
the rude deJigns that adorn the others. The 
latter are, however, by far the more interefting, 

iviG3G886 



vi Preface. 

not merely on account of their greater rarity, but 
becaufe they are exponents of feelings or manners 
that are not illuftrated by any other fources of fb 
early a period. Even the political ballads in this 
colleftion, fuch as thofe refpefting Charles the 
Second, are for the moft part the contemporary 
ftreet rude ballads, not the more poliftied ones ; 
and are of the rareft occurrence, if not unique. 

Great pains have been taken in the formation 
of the colleftion, nearly every black-letter ballad 
of intereft that has occurred for fale during the 
laft fixteen years having been fecured. The only 
coUeftions at all approaching it in extent are the 
Pepyfian at Cambridge, the Wood at Oxford, 
and the Roxburghe in the Britifti Mufeum, all 
of which are permanently fecured, and can never 
be diftributed ; but no coUeftion of equal extent 
and importance is known to exift in private 
hands, and fo unufual is the occurrence of any- 
thing of the kind for fale, that no labour and 
expenfe could fucceed in forming a fimilar one. 

A fmall number (about 150) were purchafed 
as having been duplicates of ballads in the Rox- 
burghe collection, but it was found on examin- 
ation that fcarcely any were exaft duplicates, feve- 



Preface. vii 

ral were much earlier and better copies, while 
others were different editions of the fame ballad, 
often with different woodcuts. It is very rarely 
that two early black-letter ballads occur as per- 
feft duplicates. Many editions of each were 
generally printed, and they are all diftinguifhed 
by peculiarities worthy of notice. A few fpe- 
cimens of different editions of the fame ballad 
will be found in the following colleftion. 

The curiofity and rarity of thefe fugitive 
pieces fpeak for themfelves, and all unneceflary 
obfervations on their value and importance have 
been avoided ; but there is a remark upon fuch 
relics made by a diftinguifhed prelate, himfelf 
an ardent lover of them, which may not be an 
inappropriate conclufion to thefe few prefatory 
lines — " Yet have they, for the moft part, a pleaf- 
ing fimplicity, and many artlefs graces, which, 
in the opinion of no mean critics, have been 
thought to compenfate for the want of higher 
beauties, and, if they do not dazzle the imagin- 
ation, are frequently found to intereft the heart."
