HE completion of the Fifth Volume of this collection of Parodies affords me an

opportunity of acknowledging many acts of courtesy shown by gentlemen who take an interest in the subject.

They have appreciated the importance of making the collection complete, and

reliable as a book of reference on Parody and Burlesque, and by the information they have sent, have assisted me to carry out my design so far as it has gone.

In some few cases the difficulty of finding the authors has prevented me from obtaining their permission to insert their poems, but in every instance due acknowledgment has been made.

No trouble has been spared to obtain every parody worth quoting, to trace every poem to its original source, and to give the Authors' names, wherever they could be ascertained.

Without the assistance of the Authors themselves it would have been impossible to collect and verify such a mass of information, and my thanks are especially due to the following gentlemen, either for permission to reprint their parodies, or for other literary assistance in the compilation of the work : E. B. Anstee, Cuthbert Bede, (Rev. E. Bradley,) F. W. Crawford, T. F. Dillon-Croker, J. G. Dalton (of Boston, U.S.) F. B. Doveton, James Gordon, F.S.A., J. H. Ingram, J. Brodie-Innes, John Lane, Rev. H. C. Leonard, J. M. Lowry, A. W. Mackenzie, F. B. Perkins (of San Francisco, V.S.) Walter Parke, Edward Simpson, G. R. Sims, T. H. Smith, (of Chicago, U.S.) Edward Walford, M.A., C. H. Waring, and Edmund H. Yates.

Not only has their friendly aid cheered my labors, but it has encouraged me to hope for equally valuable assistance during the publication of the Sixth Volume, which will deal principally with the works of living poets, or with the poems of those who have only recently passed away.

INDEX TO FIRST LINES.
The Curfeu tolls the knell of parting Day
The Curfew tolls the hour of closing gates ...
Retirement's hour proclaims the tolling Bell
The shrill bell rings the knell of “Curtain rise"
St. Paul's proclaims the solemn midnight hour
The Courts are shut-departed every Judge...
Gazettes now toll the melancholy knell ...
Now sinks the sun within the azure main ...
The clock bell tolls the hour of early day ...
The prompter rings the lofty curtain down ...
The clock proclaims the welcome dinner hour
The watchman drawls the hour of dawning day
The Chancellor has passed the stern decree
The turnkey rings the bell for shutting out...
The surly crier rings his nightly knell
Great Tom now sounds the close of busy day
St. Dunstan's bells proclaim departing day...
The moon slow setting sends a parting ray ...
