1807 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

William Oldys

Thomas Park to Samuel Egerton Brydges, 1807; Moulton, Library of Literary Criticism (1901-05) 3:457.



My additions to the notes of Oldys in the Harleian Miscellany will not be very numerous, for no editor could ever have been more competent to the undertaking than he was; but a successive editor must seem at least to have done something more than his predecessor.
