Excerpt from Yorkshire Anthology: Ballads Songs Ancient Modern (With Several Hundred Real Epitaphs) Covering a Period of a Thousand Years of Yorkshire History in Verse; With Notes Bibliographical, Biographical, Topographical, Dialectic, &C., And Quaint and Original Illustrations

The Title Page sufficiently indicates the object of the Work of which this is the first volume. The second volume will record particulars respecting probably not less than fifteen hundred Yorkshire writers, who have expressed their thoughts in rhyme, and will also give bibliographical descriptions of the books, pamphlets and broadsides they have caused to be printed.

To complete the history of Yorkshire Anthology, it will be necessary to add not only the real Epitaphs so profusely scattered over the graveyards of the county, but also the Place and Folk-rhymes, the poetry of similes and proverbs, and other by-paths of poetical literature. A chapter on Hymnology would include the crude effusions of the first Baptist and other preachers, as well as the highly finished hymns of our Yorkshire standard hymn writers. In this ecclesiastical section there should be noticed the decadence of the ancient Mystery Plays, and the revival in recent times of Sacred Dramas and Services of Song.
