Summary EBBA is dedicated to providing electronic access to early ballads printed in English, especially black-letter broadsides pre-1700. The site includes online images of ballads in high-quality facsimiles as well as "facsimile transcriptions." Additionally, EBBA provides sung versions of the ballads and background essays. The first project archived over 1,800 ballads from the Samuel Pepys collection held by the Pepys Library at Magdalene College. The Roxburghe ballads held by the British Library are being mounted in the next phase. Ballads at other UK and US institutions have also been targeted for inclusion in EBBA.
