Excerpt from Reliques of Ancient English Poetry, Vol. 1 of 3: Consisting of Old Heroic Ballads, Songs, and Other Pieces of Our Earlier Poets; Together With Some Few of Later Date
Twenty years have near elapsed since the last edition of this work appeared. But, although it was... sufficiently a favourite with the public, and had long been out of print, the original editor had no desire to revive it. More important pursuits had, as might be expected, engaged his attention; and the present edition would have remained unpublished, had he not yielded to the importunity of his friends, and accepted the humble Offer of an editor in a nephew, to whom, it is feared, he will be found too partial.
