Scope Note

This collection consists of song sheets (song lyrics without music), poems in broadside format, and lyric books which date from the late 1600s to the early 1800s. These materials are predominantly British, but also include a limited assortment of Scottish, Irish, Italian, and American items. In subject matter, they range from the evils (or benefits) of drink, to romance and marriage and star-crossed loves, to satirical commentary on political and social events. One unusual item is a jingle advertising A. Davis's China and Glass Shop, which begins: "Ladies!!! Why Don't You Marry?" (Box 4: 4). Many items are illustrated with vignettes or small panels representing a variety of printing techniques, such as woodcut, engraving, and lithography. The collection is grouped into seven series.

Series I: English Printers is organized alphabetically according to the name of the printer. Each name is followed by a list of the folder's contents by title. Brackets " " around a series of titles indicates that the verses are printed on the same sheet. Items by English printers may also be found in Series VI: Oversize.

Series II consists of lyric books, some of which identify a printer. These are organized alphabetically by country and title. Printer and date of publication are listed when available.

Series III consists of printed sheets which do not identify a printer. These are organized in alphabetical order according to title. Brackets " " around a series of titles indicates that these verses are printed on the same sheet. Items from this group may also be found in Series VII: Oversize.

Series IV represents items from the Harvard Class of 1915's gift in 1922 to Child Memorial Library, Harvard University, in memory of Lionel de Jersey. This group consists of 17th-century printed materials which are mostly satirical verses related to political events. These items are organized alphabetically by title; printer and date of publication are listed when available.

Series V consists of photographs and contact prints of 17th-18th century printed materials from the collection of the Pepysian Library, Cambridge.

Series VI consists of material printed in Scotland, Ireland, and Italy. This material is organized by country, and by printer. When no printer information is available for an item, it is placed alphabetically by title.

Series VII is a collection of 61 broadside ballads, 1765-1890 (bulk dates 1790-1890). Most of the pieces were printed in London, but the series also includes broadsides from Preston and other northern towns, Dublin, and Philadelphia. Genres include social protest, sentimental themes, bawdy and humorous subjects, and minstrel and music hall songs.

Series VII contains oversized items. Box 6 includes material transferred from Series I-VI. Box 7 contains a collection of a variety of broadsides and songsheets dating from the early eighteenth to late nineteenth century; most of the pieces are English and date from the early to mid-nineteenth century. Items in Box 7 are arranged alphabetically by title, subject or author, with the exception of a small number of items in Folder 17.

In all instances, the original orthography has been retained.
