This volume was first published in 1807, shortly after its author - the antiquarian Charles Kirkpatrick Sharpe (1781-1851) - graduated from Christ Church, Oxford. At this period his social and intellectual life combined Oxford, London and Hoddam Castle in Dumfriesshire, as he developed the interests and researches that were to occupy his life. There are nine works presented: The Fiend With Mantle Grey, The Lord Clifford's Song On Fair Julian; Sir Hugh; Stanzas Adapted To An Ancient Scottish Air; False Lord Carleil And The Fair Lady Alice; An Epistle From The Shade Of The Countess Of Roxburgh To The Honourable Miss Drummond Of Perth; Lines Suggested By A Passage In Osborne's Letters; Translation Of A French Poem, Composed On The Murder Of Henri, Duke Of Guise; Lorenzo And Isabella - From Boccaccio; The Murder Of Dumblane The original notes give historical and biographical context to the poems. The collection is dedicated to CKS's cousin, and regular correspondent, Miss Campbell of Monzie.
