Description:

London: Philip Allan & Co., Ltd, 1926. First edition, as stated. Fine. 7"x5". [x], 165pp. Fine binding in dark 3/4 speckled leather over marbled boards. 5 raised bands with each compartment with gilt device, and 2 spine labels with titles. Title page with engraved printer's device. Small ticket inner front board "The Sign of the Mermaid". Interior free of foxing or other issues. In fine condition. From the Forward: "As a preface to this small collection of Old English love songs, all of which were composed before 1699, I need only say that I have not found it possible to trace to their indubitable source the 'anonymous' verses culled from the Books of 'Ayres'. Their provenance is given; but as most of the compilers of these books of airs and madrigals included in their collections poems known to be by pens other than their own, it is unsafe, in the majority of cases, to assign to the compilers any of the poems contained therein. Possibly some of these verses exist in sixteenth and seventeenth century plays and books of verse unread by me: if so, I trust that their authorship will be pointed out to me for amendment in a possible subsequent edition. In all cases the text is that of the Edition quoted, but modern spelling has generally been adopted. A brief list of Song Books is given at the end. I have to thank Mr. S. Gibson, of the Bodleian, for checking the texts of the poems on pages 5 ('The Gift') and 69 for me. [The Editor]. Bookseller Inventory #
