PREFACE

THESE volumes were not made in a day. Thirty years have passed in their compilation, and the thousands of books from which their contents have been drawn stretch over three hundred years. Many willing hands, too, have lent assistance. Antiquaries, scholars, and friendly readers, have all most kindly helped.

Clement Mansfield Ingleby, Miss Lucy Toulmin Smith, and Dr. Furnivall, who have been the great workers in this matter, were assisted by the members of the New Shakspere Society. Many of the allusions were discovered by Halliwell-Phillips, as the initials printed in the text will show. Mr. P. A. Lyons, Dr. Brinsley Nicholson, Professor Dowden, and Mr. P. A. Daniel also helped a great deal. To the two latter gentlemen, I, too, have to acknowledge indebtedness. To Mrs. Stopes, Miss Spurgeon, Professor Manly of Chicago, Dr. Bradley, Mr. R. B. McKerrow, and Professor Ker, I am grateful for references and advice. Thanks are no less given to all those who have been good enough to forward references.

Through all, from the commencement of these volumes to now, the advice and practical help of Dr. Furnivall have been freely given, and the frequency of his initials throughout our text testify to the splendid way in which he has so ungrudgingly laboured in this, as in so many other departments of literary work.

In this edition, the initials of those responsible for allusions are printed beneath them.

J. M.
