Minstrelsy, Ancient and Modern
With an Historical Introduction and Notes by William Motherwell in two volumes (1846)

As this compilation consists principally of Narrative Ballads, there occurring in it no compositions strictly called Songs, in the sense to which that term is now generally confined, except a few modem pieces, the slight observations with which it has been thought proper to introduce it are to be understood as referring exclusively to the Ancient Romantick and Historick Ballad of Scotland.
