This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1908 edition. Excerpt: ... is most likely an Italian source for this story. According to Heywood's prologue for the Cock Pit, the part of the Jew had been (originally?) played by Alleyn and at the revival by Perkins. 8. CLORIS AND ERGASTO. 7 12. 'clorys & orgasto'. Performed by Strange's men, as an old play, 28 Feb. 1591/2. Presumably a pastoral. 'Orgasto ' hardly seems a possible name. 9. POPE JOAN. 7 14. 'poope Jone'. Performed by Strange's men, as an old play, I Mar. 1591/2. A tract by I. M. called 'The Anatomie of Pope loane' was printed in 1624, and may, as Collier says, be a reprint of an earlier edition. 10.

There may also have been a later revision. The whole question is well treated by Fleay (Shakespeare, pp. 255-63). 12. BINDO AND RICHARDO. 7-8. 'bendo (byndo) & Richardo'. Performed by Strange's men, as an old play, 4 Mar., 12 Apr. and 5 June, 1591/2. This play, of which nothing further is known, was evidently founded on Painter's Palace of Pleasure, torn. i. novel 48.
