This new volume in the reprint of The Pepys Ballads has seventy-three ballads covering the more important historical events from the Great Fire of 1666 to the entry of William of Orange into London on December 18, 1688. Among the subjects of the other news-ballads are the Popish and Rye House Plots, the death of Charles II, the coronation of James II, Monmouth’s rebellion, the birth of the Young Pretender, and the flight of the Royal Family. A large number of ballads on criminals in London and the provinces, and several on prodigious happenings, help to throw considerable light on the alleys as well as the main highways of late Stuart England. There are full notes and numerous reproductions of woodcuts.
