Four early publications (1860s-70s), hard-bound in one volume, from the Early English Text Society, formed in 1864 for the study of Old English literature. Boards are worn at the corners and spine. Provenance: "Dundas Harford. Hampstead. 1911." Harford was Rev. Dundas Harford (1858-1953), Vicar of the Parish of Emmanuel in Hampstead at the time he owned this book. Interesting marginalia throughout the publication concerning Richard Rolle de Hampole (see below) indicates a scholarly interest by Rev. Harwood in this subject. The publications in this bound volume include the following: 1. Be Domes Dage De Die Judicii: An Old English Version of the Latin Poem Ascribed to Bede, by J. Rawson Lumby, B.D. (1876); 2. English Prose Treatises of Richard Rolle de Hampole (Who died A.D. 1349), edited from Robert Thornton's MS. (Cir. 1440 A.D.) in the Library of Lincoln Cathedral, by George G. Perry, M.A. (1866); 3. Hymns to the Virgin and Christ, The Parliament of Devils, and Other Religious Poems, Chiefly from The Archbishop of Canterbury's Lambeth MS. No. 853, edited by Frederick J. Furnivall (1867); and 4. Religious Pieces in Prose and Verse, edited from Robert Thornton's MS. (Cir. 1440), in the Lincoln Cathedral Library, by George G. Perry, M.A. (1867).
