WH-B

Early in the craft year which began on 19 July 1557, and
was the first of the chartered existence of the Stationers'
Company, John Waley, or Wally, entered what was no doubt
the present play on the Register along with several other
works. The entry runs as follows:

To master John wally these bokes Called Welth and helthe/the treatise of the
ffrere and the boye / stans puer ad mensam another of youghte charyte and
humylyte an a b c for cheldren in englesshe with syllabes also a bolce called

an hundreth mery tayles ij 8

[Arber's Transcript, I. 75.]

That Waley printed an edition is therefore to be pre-
sumed, but it does not necessarily follow that the extant copy,
which though perfect bears neither date nor printer's name,
ever belonged to it. Indeed, a comparison with a number of
works to which he did affix his name suggests grave doubts
on the subject. Though not a high-class printer, there seems
no reason to ascribe to him a piece of work which for bad-
ness alike of composition and press-work appears to be unique
among the dramatic productions of the sixteenth century.

4 Wealth and health' appears among the titles in the
list of plays appended to the edition of Goffe's Care/ess
Shepherdess, printed for Rogers and Ley in 1656. The entry
was repeated with the designation c C[omedy].' in Archer's
list of the same year, and, without the addition, in those of
Kirkman in 1661 and 1671. In 1691 Langbaine wrote
1 Wealth and Health, a Play of which I can give no Account.'
Gildon has no further information to offer, nor have any of
his immediate followers. Chetwood, in 1752, classes it
among 'Plays Wrote by Anonymous Authors in the 16th
[by which he means the seventeenth] Century,' calls it * an
Interlude ' and dates it 1 602. This invention was only copied
in those lists which depended directly on Chetwood's, such

v



as the Playhouse Pocket-Companion of 1779. Meanwhile, in
his Companion to the P lay-House of 1764, D. E. Baker,
relying upon Coxeter's notes, gave an essentially accurate
description of the piece, except that he asserted it to be
'full of Sport and mery Pastyme,' and described it as an
octavo. This entry has been copied by subsequent biblio-
graphers, none of whom have seen the original.

The play was among those discovered in Ireland in the
spring of 1906 and sold at Sotheby's on 30 June, when it
was purchased for the British Museum at the price of
one hundred and ninety-five pounds. Its press-mark is
C. 34. i. 25.

The extremely careless typography of the original makes
the task of reprinting a difficult one. Ordinary misprints
abound, and these have been scrupulously retained, a list of
irregularities being added below. It has, however, proved
impossible to arrive at any satisfactory method of distinguish-
ing between ' n ' and ' u.' In the first hundred lines, which
are by no means the worst printed, there are thirty-two cases
in which the letter is indistinguishable, eighteen cases of an
apparent ' u ' which should be ' n,' and seven cases of an
apparent 'n' which should be 'u.' When it is further re-
membered that there are few cases in which it is possible to
say for certain that a letter really is what it appears to be,
and none in which it may not be turned, some idea of the
difficulty in the way of reprinting will be obtained. To have
followed the original in this matter would have been to in-
troduce another misprint into at least every fourth line,
while even so several hundred cases would have remained
which could only have been decided according to the
apparent sense of the passage. The only rational course was
to treat the letters as indistinguishable throughout, and to

vi



print in each instance whichever the sense seemed to require.
Again, as the superscript letters 'c,' c e,' 't,' are seldom distin-
guishable, the printer has been given the benefit of the
doubt. Another difficulty arose in connection with the
speakers' names. In the original these have often dropt
from their proper places, which can now only be ascertained
from the sense and the not very regular indentation. With
some hesitation it has been decided to restore them to the
positions they should apparently occupy, noting all cases in
which they are a line or more out in the original. Lastly it
may be remarked that in the speeches which aim at imitating
foreign languages the apparent readings of the very indistinct
original have been scrupulously reproduced, and no attempt
has been made, even in the subjoined list, to suggest any
corrections.

In the last sheet some of the pages are cropt at the
foot. In most cases nothing more than the catchword has
disappeared, and although between lines 768 and 769 some-
thing seems to be lost, it is doubtful whether this is due to
the cropping, since Di v has already one line too many.

The original is printed in the ordinary black letter of the
period, of the body known as English (20 11. = 94 mm.).
