PREFATORY NOTE

This book deals with the ballad as a kind of poetry, with as little as possible of antiquarian or linguistic or even literary detail. In pursuing this end I have found myself especially aided by Mr. John Geddie's book on “ The Balladists in the Famous Scots Series. He seems to me to have expressed the real quality of the ballads better than most who have published on the subject, and I have been a good deal guided by his ideas in my selections for the first part of this book. Like everybody else who deals with ballads, I am under great obligations to Francis James Child. The text of the old ballads in the first part comes always from his earlier collections, although I have made emendations from different sources.
