Notes

First edition in bookform, in a handsome binding, of this collection of minstrelsy first published in English Illustrated, with Hugh Thomson providing the illustrations. Austin Dobson, who contributes the introduction, later wrote that "many of the drawings for these, though of necessity reduced for publication in book form, are in his most delightful and winning manner" (Dobson, Modern Book Illustrators, in De Libris, p. 120).
