Songs and Ballads free pdf Excerpt from Songs and Ballads: With Other Short Poems, Chiefly of the Reign of Philip and Mary, Edited From a Manuscript in the Ashmolean Museum The celebrated antiquary, Thomas Hearne, had a custom, when he printed an old chronicle or any other historical work, of adding, under the title of Appendices or Notes, a quantity of miscellaneous matter, which had no relation whatever to the text of his book. It was thus that, in publishing an edition of the Historia of Gulielmus Neubrigensis, in 1719, he printed, among the materials collected together as an Appendix to his Preface, p. lxxxii., an early text of the ballad of Chevy Chace, stating that it was taken "out of an old MS. communicated to me by a learned friend." It is rather curious that Hearne should not have been aware that this "old manuscript" lay almost under his nose, for it was one of the treasures of the Library of the Ashmolean Museum at Oxford, marked as MS. Ashm. No. 48, and consisting of a very interesting collection of old English poetry. In 1802, when Ritson published his Bibliographia Poetica, he was equally ignorant of the existence of this MS., and he merely sneers at Hearne for supposing that the ballad of Chevy Chace was the work of a minstrel named Richard Sheale, whose name was attached to it, and for making him the author of several other pieces of poetry, and believing him to have been living in the year 1588- whereas Ritson declares that "the ballad is manifestly a composition of the preceding century."
