[Southey's name does not appear on the page.]
Similar Collections to the present have long been known in France and Germany, under the title of Almanacks of the Muses. In Germany they were first introduced by Burger, and Schiller and Voss each edite one at present.
Of the poems contained in this volume, none have appeared in any regular form. Many have been printed in the Morning-Post. Many are now first published: and, with the exception of one piece only, all have been transmitted to the Editor by their respective Authors.
It is the intention of the Editor to publish annually a similar volume. Communications are to be addressed to Messrs. Biggs & Co. Printers, Bristol, for the Editor of the Annual Anthology. It is requested that the Writer will enclose his address, that the piece may be returned, if found inconvenient to insert.
[contents is like that of a miscellany, by name of poem and author although most of them have no author. There are women and men poets mixed up together.]
In Vol. 1, there are poems by Mrs. Opie (many), Joseph Cottle, Charles Lamb, Robert Southey, George Dyer; vol. 2: Charles Lloyd, S. T. Coleridge, Joseph Hicks, Robert Southey, Mrs. Robinson, Charles Lamb, Edmund Everard, William Case. The poems of one author do not occur next to each other. There are no headnotes; I saw one footnote in all volumes.]
