Others hee plaid, but acted hath his owne.
XX. Extract from an account of a visit to Bosworth Field
given in an itinerary by Bishop Corbet, here taken from the
edition in his Poems, ed. 1647. This pleasant narrative was
written long before the date of publication, while the recollections
of the host of the Leceister inn are obviously meant to extend to
a period antecedent to the year 1619.

Mine host was full of ale and history,
And on the morrow when he brought us nigh
Where the two roses joyned, you would suppose
Chaucer nere writ the Romant of the Rose.



6O2 THEATRICAL EVIDENCES.

Heare him : see yee yond' woods ? there Richard lay

With his whole army. Looke the other way,

And loe where Richmond in a bed of grosse

Encamp'd himselfe o're night with all his force.

Upon this hill they met. Why, he could tell

The inch where Richmond stood, where Richard fell ;

Besides what of his knowledge he could say,

Hee had authentique notice from the play,

Which I might guesse by's mustring up the ghosts,

And policies not incident to hosts ;

But chiefly by that one perspicuous thing

Where he mistooke a player for a king,

For when he would have said, King Richard dy'd,

And calFd a horse, a horse, he Burbage cry'd.

LIFE-TIME EDITIONS.

This list of the contemporary editions of Shakespeare's
poems and dramas, here arranged in chronological order,
will give a fair idea of the extent in one direction of the
literary popularity that he enjoyed in his own life- time.
The titles of spurious works that are found either with his
name in full, or in abridgment, are also included; but
those with merely his initials have not been admitted.
There is no distinct evidence that intentional deception was
contemplated in any of the latter cases.
