The section of anonymous work has been increased and reorganized for the reader's convenience. A general section includes quotations from songs, sayings, and political writings, while new selections from ballads, nursery rhymes, and foreign sayings and proverbs have been added. Finally, a number of changes have been made in format to make the new edition much easier to use. On each page the left and right columns have been designated alphabetically, so that the index references are now to columns instead of full pages. Each page of the index also carries running heads showing the first and last entry."
