Excerpt from Heroes of Chivalry and Romance In writing the story of Beowulf I have been helped by Kemble's translation and tes, and still more by Professor Earle's admirable edition. In telling the Nibelung tale I have always had at hand the translation by Mr W N. Lettsom, and have also made use of a version made by Miss Alice Horton and published this year under the editorship of Mr. Edward Bell. I desire thankfully to ackwledge the obligation under which I stand to both these works. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
