HE present work, although substan

tially a reprint of the Aldine edition of “ The Poetical Works of the Earl

of Surrey," published in 1831, has been critically and carefully revised, and some additional notes appended explanatory of words now become obsolete. The Poems have been collated with the edition of the “Songs and Sonnets," edited by Bishop Percy and George Steevens, as well as by the recent reprint of the first edition of “ Tottel's Miscellany," by John Payne Collier, Esq., whose ready kindness is acknowledged for the loan of the sheets of that rare work. The text of the two books of “ Virgil's Æneid,” has also been revised by the accurate edition of William Bolland, Esq. published by the Roxburghe Club.

In the Memoir of the Earl of Surrey, some of the statements of his heroic career have been corrected, and other particulars relating to him supplied, which had escaped the researches of Dr. Nott and his later biographers.
