Printed at London by Peter Short, and are to be sold by Cuthbert Burbie at his shop at the Royall Exchange, 1594

*** “ This Edition is two years earlier than any hitherto noticed. It is anonymous, and has been supposed to be the Play used by Shakespeare as the foundation of his Taming of the Shrew. There is no good reason why it should not be considered as the first idea of his play, as the difference between the two is little more than that between the recently discovered Hamlet and the more perfect Editions afterwards printed ; and also between the first Edition of the Merry Wives of Windsor, 1602, and that in the folio, 1623. The variations in the names of the characters between the present Edition and that in the folio of 1623 will not militate against the supposition, as it was not an unfrequent practice among the Dramatick Authors of the time. Ben Jonson changed the names of the Dramatis Personæ of his Every Man in his Humour, as will be seen by comparing the 4to. Edition of 1601, and the folio 1616. In the Hamlet of 1603, Polonius is called Corambis throughout; and it is well known also, that Sir John Falstaff originally bore the name of Sir John Oldcastle. Mr. Malone assigns the year 1594, as the date of the composition of The Taming of the Shrew; and when the present play was republished in 1607, it had the name of

Shakespeare as the Author on the title-page. In whatever

light it may be considered, whether as the Play remodelled by Shakespeare, or as the first draught of his Comedy, it is unquestionably of the highest literary interest and curiosity in a Shakesperian Library." From Mr. Inglis's
