I. The Danbar Anthology. 1401-1508 A.D.
V. The Jonser Anthology. 1617-1637 A.D.
PROFESSOR EDWARD ARBER, F.S.A.
FELLOW OF KING'S COLLEGE, LONDON, ETC.
*HIS is the first adequate attempt that has ever been
made towards an historical national Anthology at popular prices.
The Series will contain about 2,500 entire Poems and Songs, written by some Three Hundred Poets.
As each Volume represents a definite period of our literary history, some Poets will, of necessity, appear in more than one Volume. Nearly every form of English Versification will be represented in the Series. Each Volume will be complete in itself; and will contain a Glossary of such words, &c. in it, as have changed their meanings since its Poems were written.
British Anthologies will therefore contain those Poems and Songs with which every one ought to be acquainted.
