Excerpt from 'Huchown of the Awle Ryale', The Alliterative Poet: A Historical Criticism of Fourteenth Century Poems Ascribed to Sir Hew of Eglintoun
My preface must close in grateful expressions to many friends, particularly to Professor John Young, M.D., Keeper of the Hunterian Museum, whose constant helpfulness alone made possible to me the ms. Discoveries now recorded. Monsieur F. J. Amours also has been (alike where we agree and where we differ) the most courteous and obliging of fellow-students in the alliterative literature. To Mr. J. T. T. Brown, and his sympathetic attitude towards what I may call my 'plot, ' as it developed under my hands, I owe almost as much as I do for his fruitful suggestions, offered to me long ago, of the need for work on present lines for the vindication of the disputed poet.
The present essay has arisen out of two papers read to the Glasgow Archaeological Society on toth April and 1sth December, 1900, recast and united and extended. The whole is now reprinted from the Proceedings of the Society, with a few alterations and additions, including an index, in an edition of 300 copies, whereof 250 are for sale.
