Main Text


THIS edition of Lord Herbert's poems was prepared and accepted for publication by the Delegates of the Clarendon Press eight or nine years ago. Owing to the difficulties created by the War it only now sees the light; and I feel that my special thanks are due to the Delegates for carrying out their old undertaking under different conditions from any that could have been anticipated when they gave it.

I am also indebted to my friend Mr. Percy Simpson, who read my MS. on behalf of the Press and made a number of valuable suggestions by which the work such as it is has benefited.
