I wish to thank Roger Lonsdale for identifying the author of the poem ' Virgil's Tomb', quoted in an epigraph on p. 271, and referring me to one of the editions of Dodsley Collection of Poems in which ' Virgil's Tomb' is included. I should also like to thank Brian Jenkins, of Cambridge University Library, for his help and advice when I was arranging to use one of the Library's copies of The Romance of the Forest as the basis of the text.
I am indebted, too, to the Research Fund and Press Committee of Sheffield University, for providing me with a grant towards the research expenses which my work on this edition entailed.
