Notes

First edition, the subscribers' edition. Uncommon account of the dramatic tale of Colonel Blood's clumsy plot to steal the Crown Jewels, COPAC has just BL for this and also a copy of the John Heywood-published standard edition, OCLC adds a copy of the former at New York University and the latter 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.
