Elizabethans and the Restoration; and he offers very fair entertainment to passing travellers.

I have mentioned many of the contributors to our anthology, but the list is not exhausted. Some fresh-coloured verses in praise of Robin Hood (p. 87) are from a rare pageant of Anthony Munday, who also wrote Robin's Dirge (p. 86). Thomas Goffe has several good songs; and Richard Brome is not forgotten. Among the masque-writers represented are Samuel Daniel, Dr. Campion, and William Browne ; and I have drawn from some anonymous masques. If any songs of merit have escaped my notice I will endeavour to repair the fault hereafter; but I have been at some pains to make the collection as complete as possible.
