The Northern Garland, in four parts. Part I. How a Northern Lord made a Sale of his fair and beautiful Daughter to a worthy Knight; the price being her weight of Gold, which was borrowed of a Jew on a dreadful Agreement. Part II. How he fled from the Jew to the German Court, where he was kindly entertained, till a Dutch Lord had like to have deprived him of his Lady, Life, and Honour. Part III. How the Dutch Lord, because he could not have his will, sent for the Jew to cut him in pieces for that Gold, and how he was delivered from that danger by his Lady in Man's Apparel. Part IV. How the Northern Lord hearing the false report of his Daughter's Death, went over to see his Son executed; and now his Daughter under the name of the Green Knight, pleaded his cause from Time to Time, and delivered him from Death: concluded with a happy discovery, which crowned them with an universal Joy.
