PREFACE

The text of this volume is precisely that of Tickell's edition of 1721, except for the correction of misprints. Such corrections have been inclosed in square brackets, with references to the reading which has been displaced and to the sources of the better reading. In these references the original sheets are indicated by S; the first collected editions, by C; Tickell's edition, by T.

For assistance in reproducing the title-pages of books in foreign libraries we are indebted to Professor George Pierce Baker, of Harvard University, and to Professor George Rapall Noyes, of the University of California. For indispensable advice and assistance of every sort we are deeply indebted to Professor George Lyman Kittredge, of Harvard University.
