Thread Name: Top Ten Old Ballads
Subject: RE: Top Ten Old Ballads
Easy to index the Bodleian Ballads by date. In Index, select date. Then enter 1700-1800 or whatever range you want.
Some seem comic now but were serious when written, e. g. the one published 1701, "The Swearer Reformed,---," "King Edwqard's Ghost" (1700), etc.
