[notes bt mk. a. e. fret.]

I have before me a book with the following
title, " Six Old Plays," on which Shakspeare
founded his " Measure for Measure," '• Comedy of
Errors," " Taming of the Shrew," " King John,"
" King Henry IV. and V.," and " King Lear."
Two VoJ.'i. bound in one. L. 1779. Sometimes
called "Nichols Steevens' edition." In it I find
several initials, and I have looked them up with
the following result. The first play is, —

" Ilistorye of Promus and Cassandra," by
Geo. "Whetstones. It opens with an address by
the author, and signed with his name. Then
follows " 'The Printer to the Reader," signed
" R. I." In Collier's " Shakspere Library,"
edited by Hazlitt, I find that this " R. I." =
Richard .Tones, who printed the edition of the
play in 1578. His whole name appears at the
close of the play in the above book.

The next play is "Mencecmi," a pleasant and
fine conceited comoedie, taken out of the most
excellent wittie poet, Plautus . . . written in
English by W. W. London, 1595. " W. W.,"
says Knight, in his introductory notice to tie

"Comedy of Errors" (on the authority of
Wood) was William Warner.

Born, probahly 1558; died, March 9 or 10,
1608-9. Allibone, under William Warner.

The next play is the " Krst and Second Part
of the Troublesome Reign of John, King of Eng-
land," etc., written by W. Sh. Imprinted by
Valentine Simmes for John Helme, 1611.

" W. Sh. " = William Slialcespeare, but I find
" On the title of the reprint of 1611, the book-
seller placed the initials W. Sh., ostensibly for
the purpose of creating a belief that the play was
Shakespeare's." — See " Shakespeare's Library,"
by Collier, edited by Hazlitt, Pt. 11., Vol. I.,
p. 222; edition London, 1S75.

Next comes the " Taming of a Shrew,"
printed by V. S. for Nicholas Ling.

" V. 8. " = Valentine Simmes (a printer),
who printed " King John."

Here ends all the initials that I find in the
" Six Old Plays, etc."; but I find a reference to
another initial.

" The Whole Contention between the two
Famous Houses, Lancaster and York. With
the Tragicall ende of the good Duke Humpfrey,
Richard, Duke of York, and King Henrie the
sixt. Divided into two Parts, and newly cor-
rected and enlarged. Written by William
Shakspeare, Gent. Printed at London, for
T. P."

This contains the "First Part of the Conten-
tion" as well as the " True Traafedie." " T. P."
was Thomas Pavier, the publisher of other
plays.
