    Copy dates from about the turn of the Century, circa 1896. Excellent reprint all in the original middle-English spelling, which gives an indication of the pronunciation common at that time. Rag content papers which haven't yellowed badly, and beautifully illustrated with period images of the characters and flourish imparted to headers and footnote areas. The tales of Chevy Chase, Fair Rosamond, Flodden Field, Robin Hood, The Fause Lover, The Mermaid, just to name several listed.

The tales of Chevy Chase, Fair Rosamond, Flodden Field, Robin Hood, The Fause Lover, The Mermaid, just to name several listed. Much to my joy not all the ballads had moral attached, and seemed to be happy just relating the unique events as they must have been told many hundreds of years ago. There is a lilt to the way they are written, giving an indication that many were accompanied with song, with a harp or lute most likely used. I read it twice I enjoyed it so thoroughly, and still would read it again, as many of the pieces are most brief. A wonderful experience from beginning to finish.
