Notes

First edition. Uncommon account of the dramatic tale of Colonel Blood's clumsy plot to steal the Crown Jewels, COPAC has just BL for this John Heywood-published standard edition and also a copy of the Subscriber's edition; OCLC adds a copy of the latter at New York University and the former at the University of Minnesota. Rev. Whittenbury Kaye was a Manchester clergyman and antiquarian. Finding a record of Blood's wedding to Maria Holcroft in the parish register of his own church, he set to gathering all the materials he could relating to the career of the flamboyant Irishman.
