J.M. Dent & Sons, London, (1978), reprinted with minor corrections. 
258 pp, 7 3/8" H, soft cover. From a late 14th century manuscript..."The poems are written in a superb poetic version of a dialect that belongs to the north-west midland area of England, comprising south Lancashire, north Derbyshire and the West Riding of Yorkshire...In the present edition, Professor Cawley and Dr Anderson have removed most of the archaic forms of letters and have provided marginal glosses and footnote paraphrases. The result is an accurate, easily readable text in which no wanton changes have been made to the spelling or wording of the manuscript." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor edge wear, minor rubbing, flat uncreased spine. Very Good+
