Catalogue Note

Second edition. The work is sometimes attributed to Robert Anton, and to Robert Aylett. The frontispiece appears for the first time in this edition. Robert Armin was the only other dramatist who acted in Shakespeare's Company while Shakespeare was acting. He is mentioned along with Shakespeare and others, on the royal patent to Shakespeare's company, May 19, 1603. Whoever the author may have been, he shows familiarity with the London stage and the works of Shakespeare, Jonson, Kyd and Spenser.
