Thomas Percy was the first serious translator of Old Norse-Icelandic poetry into English. He published his Five Pieces of Runic Poetry in London in 1763 (now only available as a rare book) and in 1770 the more celebrated Northern Antiquities. Five Pieces was a seminal work in the history of reception and understanding of ON poetry in Britain and it also has more general significance in our understanding of the development of the discipline of ON-Icelandic studies. The study comprises a facsimile of the 1763 edition, with facing-page notes to allow the modern reader to situate Percy's work in its intellectual context, together with an introduction on Percy himself, his work on ON-Icelandic studies, and the contemporary context of the reception of ON poetry in Britain (and to some extent in the rest of Europe). In addition, this study publishes eight other poetic translations (one from Old English and the others from Old Icelandic) that Percy completed about the same time.

Psalm 115
 by Isaac Watts

The true God our refuge; or, Idolatry reproved.

Not to ourselves, who are but dust,
Not to ourselves is glory due,
Eternal God, thou only just,
Thou only gracious, wise, and true.

Shine forth in all thy dreadful name;
