Reliques of Ancient English Poetry

Until now, the first edition has not been available to scholars of the eighteenth century and British and European Romanticism.

Reliques of Ancient English Poetry

The Reliques is a collection of ballads, songs, romances and historical poetry, annotated with Percy's literary-antiquarian observations. It is a seminal text in English literature, one that profoundly influenced writers from Thomas Chatterton to Wordsworth, Coleridge and Keats and the Pre-Raphaelites. Until now, the first edition has not been available to scholars of the eighteenth century and British and European Romanticism. A superb example of period publishing, it includes scarce proofsheets, excluded from the original edition, as well as new critical and bibliographical introduction.
