Notes

The British Library copy of this play, imaged by EEBO and transcribed by the TCP, is missing leaf A4, which contains the commendatory poems by "Ben: Ionson" and "G. Chapman". This copy is also bound differently than other copies, with gathering ¶ inserted between A2 and A3. See the Huntington copy or Harvard's copy for comparison.
