   EDWARDI CAPELL
   MANIBVS



PREFACE.


The books catalogued in the present volume were collected by the
Shakespearian scholar Edward Capell and formed the principal part of his
library during the years which he spent in the preparation of his
edition of Shakespeare’s dramatic works. After the publication of this
his life’s work and the completion of his commentary, the appearance of
which however was delayed, Capell parted with his library, the most
valuable portion being presented to Trinity while the remainder was
dispersed. The conclusion of the Seniority relating to the gift is
preserved in the books of the College under the date June 26, 1779. It
runs “Agreed by the Master and Seniors, that the thanks of the Society
be presented to Edward Capel, Esq. for the valuable Collection of the
old Editions of Shakespeare, and of the several manuscripts and printed
books, relating to the same Author. J. Peterborough, M.C.” The further
conclusion relating to the keeping of the books will be found quoted in
the entry concerning the MS catalogue (p. 163).

Edward Capell, son of the rector of Stanton in Suffolk, was born on June
11, 1713. He was educated at the grammar school of Bury St Edmunds and
at Catharine Hall, Cambridge. In 1737 he became deputy-inspector of
plays and in 1745 groom of the privy chamber; both appointments being
due to the patronage of the Duke of Grafton. In 1760 he published his
volume of ‘Prolusions.’ In 1768 appeared his edition of Shakespeare in
ten volumes, dedicated to the grandson of his former patron. The
commentary was not finally published till 1783. In the meanwhile Capell
had died at his chambers in Brick Court in the Temple on February 24,
1781. He also published ‘Two Tables elucidating the Sounds of Letters’
in 1749 and ‘Reflections on the Originallity of Authours’ in 1766.

The system on which the books have been catalogued will I think explain
itself. Each work is entered under the author’s name whenever the
ascription can be made with a reasonable degree of certainty, whether or
not the name appears in the work itself. Otherwise books are entered
under their titles, except in the case of those published under
pseudonyms, which are treated as real names. Initials have not been
allowed as headings. In all cases in which any possibility of doubt
exists, cross references will be found in the index. With regard to
information concerning printers, etc. I have only given notes in cases
of particular interest. A list of printers and stationers will be found
at the end. In one detail I have deliberately sacrificed consistency to
expediency. I have, namely, in giving the names of authors of
commendatory verses and the like, followed the original or modernised
spelling as appeared more convenient in each individual case.

Finally it is my pleasant duty to acknowledge the kind and valuable help
I have throughout received from Mr Aldis Wright, at whose original
suggestion the present work was undertaken. I also owe certain
suggestions and corrections to my friend Mr A.W. Pollard of the British
Museum, to whom the proofs were submitted.

CAPELL’S SHAKESPEARIANA


ADLINGTON, WILLIAM.

The eleuen Bookes of the Golden Asse ... 1596. _See_ APULEIUS, Lucius.


ALEXANDER, WILLIAM, _Earl of Stirling_.

The Monarchicke Tragedies; Crœsus, Darius, The Alexandræan, Iulius
Cæsar. Newly enlarged By William Alexander, Gentleman of the Princes
priuie Chamber. Carmine dij superi placantur, carmine manes. _London
Printed by Valentine Simmes for Ed: Blovnt._ 1607.

   4^o. (7¼ × 5¼). R. 15.

    Collation: A-2D⁴2E²; a²B-M⁴N²; A-K⁴L², unpaged. K 4 in the third
    alphabet blank. Wanting A1 in the first (? blank). The general title
    is on A 2, followed by argument and personae to the ‘Alexandrian
    Tragedy,’ which begins on B 1. ‘Julius Caesar’ has a separate
    titlepage with same imprint on P 2. The rest of the volume (sig. a
    etc.) is the edition of the ‘Monarchic Tragedies’ of 1604 with
    omission of the first sheet, A. It begins with commendatory verses
    by Robert Ayton, which are followed by the argument and personae to
    ‘Croesus’ (some copies have four leaves to sheet a, the additional
    matter being verses to King James). Then follows the tragedy of
    ‘Croesus’ while ‘Darius’ has separate titlepage dated 1604. In the
    present copy the 1604 portion has been placed immediately after
    sheet A of the new portion, in order to get the plays in the order
    mentioned on the titlepage. This arrangement is frequently met with
    but leads to absurdities, since the 1604 portion must either be
    placed, as here, between the personae to the ‘Alexandrian Tragedy’
    and the play itself, or else, as in the copy in the British Museum,
    in the middle of sheet A.

     BM 31.

     Agnes Dowglas, Countess of Argyle. This and the ‘Paraenesis’ are
     inserted in the middle of the ‘Monarchic Tragedies’ at the end of
     the 1604 portion, but appear to be really distinct publications.

     BM 30.

     Robert Allot, the editor). Verses to the reader signed R. A. Table
     of headings Errata. The stationers were Nicholas Ling (whose device
     appears on the titlepage), Cuthbert Burby, and Thomas Hayes. In
     some copies the name of the last appears at length on the
     titlepage. Allot’s full name also appears in some copies at the end
     of the dedicatory verses (Haz. I. 321).

     Latin epitaph on Chaucer by Stephanus Surigonus. Copies of this
     edition are also found bearing in the colophon the names of
     ‘Wyllyam Bonham’, ‘Thomas Petit’, and ‘Robart Toye.’ They are all
     alike undated. Mr Hazlitt places it before the edition of 1542,
     thus making it the second collected edition, and suggests the date
     1538; Prof. Skeat and the BM catalogue place it after, making it
     the third, which seems more likely, the former dating it 1550, the
     latter 1545. The only dated book by Bonham, it may be remarked,
     appeared in 1542. In any case it is a reprint of Thynne’s text
     first printed in 1532.

     Engraved titlepage signed William Hole. Collation: 2 leaves
     unsigned, replacing original engraved titlepage. * 2-6, with two
     leaves inserted after * 5 (* 4 misprinted A 4), A-2F⁶2G⁸;
     A3-6B-Q⁶R⁸ S-2H⁶2I⁸; paged. R 8 and 2I 8 in second alphabet
     blank. Wanting the two leaves inserted in sig. *, and * 6, also 2G
     8 (? blank). This edition is made up of earlier editions of both
     parts; the ‘Odessey’ is also inserted between the new title-sheet
     and the ‘Iliad’ instead of following the latter. The title-sheet
     contains, engraved titlepage, with engraved portrait of the
     translator on the verso; engraved memorial to Prince Henry on
     second leaf. (In some copies the engraved titlepage is found
     without the portrait on verso, and these seem to be the earlier
     impressions.) This sheet takes the place of the original titlepage
     (_c._ 1612-13) and the dedicatory verses to Sir Edward Philips
     found in some copies of the original issue. Dedicatory verses to
     Prince Henry, signed by the translator. Anagram on Prince Henry.
     Verses to Queen Anne, signed. Verses to Viscounts Cranborne and
     Rochester and Sir Edward Philips, occupying the two inserted leaves
     (wanting in the present copy). Verses to the reader (first leaf
     wanting). Preface. Errata. Twenty-four books of the ‘Iliad’. Verses
     to the Duke of Lenox, the Lord Chancellor, Earl of Salisbury, Earl
     of Suffolk, Earl of Northampton, Earl of Arundell, Earl of
     Pembroke, Earl of Montgomerie, Lord Lisle, Countess of Montgomerie,
     Lady Wrothe, Countess of Bedford, Earl of Southampton, Earl of
     Sussex, the Lord Warden, and Sir Thomas Howard, signed at the end.
     The edition of the ‘Odessey’ had appeared in 1614, with an engraved
     title ‘Homer’s Odysses. Translated according to y^e Greeke. By Geo:
     Chapman. Imprinted at London by Rich: Field, for Nathaniell
     Butter’. This and the blank leaf preceding it have been cancelled
     in the present as in most other copies of the collected edition. In
     some copies, _e.g._ in that in the Cambridge University Library, is
     found a printed titlepage: ‘Homers Odesses. Translated According to
     the Greeke. By George Chapman. [Motto.] London, Printed for
     Nathaniel Butter’. Epistle dedicatory in verse and prose to Robert,
     Earl of Somerset. Translations of Greek epigrams. Twenty-four books
     of the ‘Odessey’ with a few verses at the end. The present which
     was the first collected edition appeared about 1616. It seems to be
     generally assumed that the collected edition of 1616 contained, not
     the 1612-13 ‘Iliad’, but a reprint. Copies in this state are found
     in the Cambridge University Library and the British Museum (G.
     8837). The reprint, however, which appears in these copies must be
     of considerably later date, as is evident from the constant use of
     ‘v’ medially. It was probably printed about 1640. Two of the
     woodcut figures used as head-pieces were so used (with the same
     break in the St Francis) in a book printed, probably by T. Harper,
     in 1641 (namely the reprint of ‘The Devil is an Ass’ found in some
     copies of the second volume of Ben Jonson’s works, _q.v._).
     Evidently the stock of the ‘Iliad’ gave out before the ‘Odessey’
     and the first part of the volume had in consequence to be
     reprinted. Probably therefore the majority of copies of Chapman’s
     ‘Homer’ described as being of the edition of 1616 were not in
     reality issued till some twenty years later.

     Nicholas Grimald, the probable editor), while at the end of the
     poems the initials N. G. are also found. The ‘Songs of uncertain
     Authors’ are supposed to include poems by Thomas Lord Vaux, Sir
     Francis Bryan, John Heywood, Thomas Churchyard, and Edward
     Somerset. This is the second edition, the first, of which only one
     copy is known, having appeared on June 5 of the same year. In the
     second edition thirty poems by Grimald which appeared in the first
     are replaced by an additional thirty-nine poems by uncertain
     authors; some of the other matter is also rearranged. The present
     copy differs throughout from that in the BM, though the date in
     both is identical, the type having apparently been set up in
     duplicate. On the verso of the last leaf are some verses in an
     English hand of the sixteenth or early seventeenth century.

    Part ii begins, with head-title, at sig. L 2, and another address to
    the reader by Baldwin. Table of contents and list of errata at the
    end. Part i had appeared in 1559; this second extant edition is the
    first containing Part ii. Part i contains nineteen legends; Part ii
    eight legends, besides Sackville’s ‘Induction’ to his legend of
    Buckingham. The original edition of the ‘Mirror’ was printed by J.
    Wayland probably in 1554 or 1555 at the end of his edition of
    Lydgate’s ‘Falls of Princes’. The publication was stayed and the
    title only has survived. The first edition actually published was
    that of 1558, which contains Part i only. The contributors to the
    collection were William Baldwin (the editor), George Ferrers, Sir
    Thomas Chaloner, ---- Caryl, and John Skelton, in Part i; George
    Ferrers, Thomas Sackville Earl of Dorset, Thomas Churchyard, Francis
    Segars, and John Dolman, in Part ii; while nine legends are
    anonymous. For the authorship of the individual legends, see Mr W.
    F. Trench’s dissertation on the ‘Mirror’ (1898): the ascriptions
    given in the British Museum catalogue are mostly erroneous. In the
    later editions initials were frequently placed at the end of the
    legends to indicate the authorship, but in many cases they are wrong
    and in all want authority.

     edition of 1575 by the addition of twenty-three legends to Higgins’

     Thomas Blenerhasset originally published in 1578 as ‘The Second
     Part of the Mirror for Magistrates’. These are signed with the
     author’s name, and stand as legends 41-49 in the Table. The legends
     of Guidericus and Alured however have been omitted. The legend of
     Edricus is also omitted in the Table but appears in the text.
     Baldwin’s portion begins at sig. S 6 with a separate titlepage ‘The
     variable Fortunes and vnhappie Falles of such Princes as hath
     happened since the Conquest’, bearing the same imprint except for
     the date 1609. For Baldwin’s address is substituted a note to the
     reader signed with the editor’s initials, R. N. Sackville’s
     ‘Induction’ is for the first time placed at the beginning instead
     of immediately before the legend of Buckingham. Four legends (James
     I, Richard Duke of Gloucester, James IV, and Flodden) are omitted,
     while at the end is added Drayton’s Legend of Cromwell, which had
     already appeared separately in 1607 and 1609. The editor also added
     two parts of his own. The first of these begins at sig. 2O 3 with a
     separate titlepage, ‘A Winter Nights Vision ... By Richard Niccols,
     Oxon. Mag. Hall’, with the same imprint, dated 1610. This consists
     of an ‘Induction’ and ten legends, with a prose address to the
     reader, and is ornamented with woodcuts. The second begins at sig.
     3E 2 with a separate title ‘Englands Eliza: or the victorious and
     triumphant Reigne of that virgin Empresse of sacred memorie,
     Elizabeth, Queene of England, France and Ireland’, &c., with
     woodcut portrait, again bearing the same imprint, dated 1610. This
     part contains dedicatory verses to Lady Elizabeth Clere, prose
     address to the reader, induction, and the poem itself. This
     edition, the only one after 1587, was re-issued with a new
     titlepage ‘The Falles of Vnfortunate Princes’ in 1619 and again in
     1620.

     and in three portions, beginning respectively on A 1, a 1 and 2a 1,
     in the last of which the numbering jumps from 156-257). Verses to
     the reader signed B. I. facing title. Titlepage with portrait.
     Epistle dedicatory to William Earl of Pembroke and Philip Earl of
     Montgomery, signed by Iohn Heminge and Henry Condell. Address to
     the readers, signed by the same. Commendatory verses signed Ben:
     Ionson and Hugh Holland. Table of contents (which omits ‘Troilus
     and Cressida’). More commendatory verses signed L. Digges and I. M.
     List of the principal actors. The three parts, comedies, histories,
     and tragedies, have separate pagination and signatures. ‘Troilus
     and Cressida’ which is inserted at the head of the tragedies, is
     unpaged and occupies sigs. ¶-3¶ and the two unsigned leaves
     preceding them. The arrangement of the preliminary matter offers
     some difficulties. The only leaves signed are the third and fourth,
     _A_ 2 and _A_ 3, containing the epistle dedicatory and the address
     to the readers. The fifth leaf, containing Jonson’s verses,
     certainly forms one sheet with _A_ 3; and in the same way the sixth
     leaf, containing Holland’s verses, certainly forms one sheet with
     _A_ 2. It is further highly probable that the seventh leaf,
     containing the table of contents, forms one sheet with the verses
     signed B. I. _(A_ 1), and that the titlepage is on a single leaf
     inserted; also that leaves eight and nine, containing the further
     commendatory verses and the list of actors, form one sheet
     together. As the present copy shows no trace of ever having been
     tampered with, the above arrangement is probably original. It
     should however be noted that in the Chatsworth copy the unsigned
     sheet here placed after quire _A_ is there bound up in the middle.
     This may be the correct arrangement, but the copy is not in its
     original state. In the Grylls copy the preliminary matter has been
     rearranged. For the irregularities in the making up of the volume
     and the variations presented by different copies see Mr. Sidney
     Lee’s Introduction to the Oxford Facsimile. The first collected
     edition of Shakespeare’s plays, in which twenty appeared for the

     parts, beginning respectively on A 1, a 1, and 2a 1, in the last of
     which the numbering jumps from 168 to 269). Verses to the reader,
     signed B. I., facing title. Epistle and address as before.
     Commendatory verses, two copies unsigned not in previous edition,
     copies signed L. Digges and I. M. List of principal actors. More
     commendatory verses signed Ben. Ionson, I. M. S. (not in previous
     edition), and Hugh Holland, Table of contents including ‘Troilus
     and Cressida’. The three parts have separate pagination and
     signatures and ‘Troilus and Cressida’ begins those of the
     tragedies. The misprint in the signatures of the preliminary matter
     is accounted for by the fact of the compositor having reprinted
     that in the first folio, irrespective of the fact that the
     titlepage is here included in the quire. In the present copy
     sufficient room has not been allowed for the imposition of the
     portrait which consequently covers some of the printing of the
     titlepage. In some copies one of the other stationers’ names
     replaces Allot’s in the imprint. But beyond this there were two
     distinct settings up of the titlepage. Thus the Grylls copy differs
     from the present in reading ‘M^{r.}’ for ‘M^r.’, ‘Copies’ for
     ‘Coppies’, ‘sold at the signe’ for ‘sold at his shop at the signe’,
     and ‘Blacke’ for ‘blacke’. There are also two settings of sig. A 5
     in the preliminary matter, one having an ornamental initial ‘S’ at
     the beginning of the first copy of verses, the other a factotum.

     reader signed Henry Olney, list of errata, and four sonnets by
     Henry Constable. There appears to have been another issue the same
     year differing in titlepage and preliminary matter only. It is
     entitled ‘The Defence of Poesie’, is printed for William Ponsonby
     and does not contain the Constable sonnets. It was under this title
     and without the sonnets that it was included among the collected
     works in the ‘Arcadia’.

     With the Sidney arms on the titlepage. Collation: A⁴B-2Z⁸, folios
     numbered. Wanting A 1 (? blank). Epistle dedicatory to the Countess
     of Pembroke, signed. Printer’s note. This first edition is
     imperfect, breaking off in the middle of the third book. The
     division into chapters and the arrangement of the verse was the
     work of the ‘ouer-seer of the print’. The edition seems probably to
     have been printed from a corrected copy of the first portion of the
     romance left by Sidney in the hands of Fulke Greville, afterwards
     Lord Brooke (see Greville to Walsingham, August 23, 1586, in the
     State Papers, quoted by O. Sommer in Introd. to facsimile edition,
     1891). The remainder of the romance was made up by the Countess of
     Pembroke from Sidney’s loose papers, and published by Ponsonby in
     1593. The rarity of the present edition suggests that the
     publication of the complete work was intrusted to Ponsonby on
     condition of his recalling the earlier issue. The 1590 edition
     cannot be regarded as surreptitious, but there was an attempt at a
     surreptitious edition in 1586, of which Ponsonby gave warning to
     Greville. This seems to be the only recorded copy having the
     printer’s name on the titlepage, which is otherwise printed from
     the same setting up of the type. The text is identical, but slight
     differences in the type seem to point to the present being the
     earlier issue.

     this copy the quire signed ¶ is misplaced after the second
     alphabet, an arrangement also found in the copy in the Cambridge
     University Library. It is sometimes found at the end of the volume.
     The inserted sheet contains titlepage and dedication to Queen
     Elizabeth. The ‘Faery Queen’ is the same edition as above (1611),
     but has the date 1612 on the titlepage to Part II; so also is sig.
     ¶ and the single quire A containing the ‘Prosopopoia’. The
     remainder is a very close reprint, the contents and collation being
     identical. The separate titlepages have dates as follows (they are
     all printed ‘by H. L. for Mathew Lownes’ except the first):
     ‘Shepheards Calender’ with imprint ‘London, Printed by Bar: Alsop
     for Iohn Harrison the elder, and are to bee solde at his shop at
     the signe of the golden Anker in Pater Noster Row, 1617.’; ‘Colin
     Clout’ undated, ‘Prothalamion’ etc. 1617. The peculiarities
     observable in the various copies of the collected editions of 1611
     and 1617 are best explained on the following hypothesis. On Sept.
     3, 1604 W. Ponsonby assigned his right in both parts of the ‘Faery
     Queene’ to S. Waterson, who on Nov. 5 in the same year passed it on
     to M. Lownes, who published an edition in 1609. Two years later the
     question of a collected edition of Spenser’s works arose. Lownes
     caused a complete edition to be printed, and at the same time
     determined to use up the remaining copies of the 1609 ‘Faery
     Queen’. Instead however of printing the new titlepage on A 1 he
     caused a single sheet to be printed containing title and
     dedication, which could be substituted for the 1609 title. A 1
     consequently remained blank in the new edition as it is found in
     the present copy, and the title-sheet was inserted after it. The
     result of using up the 1609 edition was that the stock of some of
     the additional matter in the 1611 edition was exhausted before the
     stock of the ‘Faery Queen’. In 1617 a new title-sheet was printed
     and prefixed to the remainder stock, the additional pieces being
     reprinted when necessary. Even now some of the original copies of
     1609 remained and were issued with the general title and additional
     matter dated 1617. A copy in this state is in the Library. The
     first part to run out was the fourth alphabet containing ‘Colin
     Clout’ etc., which is always found reprinted in copies having the
     1617 titlepage. Perhaps the next was the ‘Prosopopoia’ which is
     found dated 1613 in the present copy, but which is undated in the
     copy in the Cambridge University Library. This last-mentioned copy
     however has the original edition of the ‘Shepherds Calender’ dated
     1611, while the present copy has the reprint of 1617. How this came
     to bear the imprint given above requires explanation. The editions
     of the ‘Calender’ of 1581 to 1597 were all printed for John
     Harrison the younger (_i.e._ John Harrison II) and he probably
     objected when Lownes issued the work with his own name as publisher
     in the collected edition of 1611. Before the reprint however was
     required John Harrison the elder (_i.e._ John Harrison I) either
     died or retired from business (1616), whereupon John Harrison II
     assumed the style of ‘the elder’ to distinguish himself from a John
     Harrison IV who had started business in 1603.

MANUSCRIPTS.


Catalogue of a Collection intitl’d Shakesperiana; comprehending All the
several Editions of the Works of Shakespeare, old & new; divers rare old
Editions of Writers, prose-men & verse-men; with a Variety of other
Articles, chiefly such as tend to illustrate him;--made by his last
Editor, E. C; and by him deposited in the Library of Trinity College in
Cambridge, this eleventh Day of Iune in the Year 1779.

   large 4^o. (11 × 9).

     An alphabetical index to the books in the collection, in Capell’s
     own handwriting. At the end is inserted a leaf containing a list of
     ‘Quarto’s wanted’ to complete the collection of Shakespearian
     editions. Of this list thirty copies were privately printed by
     Steevens in 1780, and it was also reprinted in Hartshorne’s ‘Book
     Rarities of Cambridge’ in 1829. The list is not very accurate and
     there are many omissions. It inserts, moreover, as if in the
     collection, many editions which it never contained, Capell having
     intended to make the list of Shakespearian quartos complete by
     reference to other collections when his own failed. In the inside
     of the cover is the following inscription: ‘June 26. 1779. Ordered
     by the Master and Seniors, agreeably to the express Desire of M^r.
     Capel, that the whole Collection given by him be kept together in
     the same Class; and that no Manuscript or Book belonging to it be
     taken out of the Library on any Pretence whatever. J. Peterborough
     M C.’ There are also three documents inserted relating to articles
     in the collection. One of these runs ‘Effigies William Shakespeare
     Britanni ad fidem tabellæ unicæ manu Richard Burbage depictæ (circa
     annum, ut videtur, 1609) per R. Barret Londinensem quam exactissimè
     expressa anno 1759, curantibus David Garrick et Edward Capell.
     Capell’s Collection given to y^e College 1779’. Another is headed
     ‘Extract of a letter to M^r. Capell, that accompany’d a Cast from
     the face of Shakespear’s monument at Stratford, dated Dec^r. 13.
     1780.’. The portrait and cast are both in the Library. The third is
     a list of certain books in Capell’s handwriting. There has also
     been added to the collection a fine medallion head of Capell,
     engraved by Bartolozzi after a plaster model taken from life by
     Roubilliac in 1750.

Mr William Shakespeare his Comedies, Histories, and Tragedies, set out
by himself in quarto, or by the Players his Fellows in folio, and now
faithfully republish’d from those Editions in ten volumes octavo; with
an Introduction: Whereunto will be added, in some other Volumes, Notes,
criticall and explanatory, and a Body of Various Readings entire.

   Qui genus humanum ingenio superavit, et omneis
   Præstinxit, stellas exortus uti æthereus Sol.

_London: Printed for &c._ 1768.

   6 vols. large 4^o. (11¾ × 9¼). MS. 1.

     Epistle dedicatory to the Duke of Grafton, signed and dated ‘Essex
     Court in the Temple Nov. 9^th’. 1766, altered to 1767 as in printed
     edition. At the end of vol. vi is inserted a printed table as in
     MS. 3. The date at which Capell began and ended each play is
     entered, but these dates do not run consecutively through the
     volumes as finally bound up. The earliest date is that to the
     ‘Merry Wives of Windsor’, begun Nov. 25, 1749, and ended Jan. 18,
     1750; the latest that to the ‘Taming of the Shrew’, begun July 4,
     1766 and ended Aug. 1 of the same year. Whether these dates refer
     to the actual construction of the text or merely to the present
     transcript is not clear, but they certainly bear some relation to
     the latter as may be seen from the handwriting which gradually
     grows larger, heavier, and less easy to read, though always
     distinguished by copperplate regularity.

Notes and Various Readings to Shakespeare, ... Volume the First. [Volume
the Second.] _London: Printed by &c._

Volume the Third. The School of Shakespeare: or, authentic Extracts from
divers English Books, that were in Print in that Author’s Time;
evidently shewing from whence his several Fables were taken, and some
Parcel of his Dialogue: Also, further extracts, from the same or like
Books, which or contribute to a due Understanding of his Writings, or
give Light to the History of his Life, or to the dramatic History of his
Time. With a Preface, and an Index of Books extracted. _London: Printed
by &c._

   3 vols. large 4^o. (11⅝ × 9⅜). MS. 2.

     The first vol. contains an address to the reader signed E. C., and
     a glossary to Shakespeare, after which come the notes and various
     readings to the different plays, which fill the remainder of vol. i
     and the whole of vol. ii. Vol. iii contains Preface signed E. C.,
     ‘Index of Books extracted’, and Extracts. There follows ‘Notitia
     Dramatica; or, Tables of Ancient Plays, (from their Beginning, to
     the Restoration of Charles the second) so many as have been
     printed, with their several Editions: faithfully compiled, and
     digested in quite new Method, by E. C. With a Preface.’. This is
     followed by a bibliographical appendix of titles, which was never
     printed. The ‘School of Shakespeare’ was begun Feb. 3, 1767 and
     ended Jan. 16, 1771. Part of the commentary was published in 1774
     but was not well received and was recalled. The whole was then put
     forth in three quarto vols. in 1779-1783, the last of which
     appeared after Capell’s death in 1781.

Paradise Lost a Poem in Twelve Books; written by Iohn Milton. _London:
Printed for &c._

   4^o. (11¾ × 9⅜). MS. 3.

     Epistle dedicatory to the Bishop of Rochester signed, and dated
     Essex Court in the Temple, Ian. 23, 1767. With List of editions and
     various readings at the end. The text was begun July 23, 1759 and
     ended Dec. 18, 1760. After this with separate titlepage ‘Hermes,
     or, A Guide to the Elements; setting forth their just Number, and a
     Mode of representing with Certainty: For the Benefit of Youth, and
     of Foreigners. Fronte, exile negotium, Et dignum pueris putes;
     Aggressis, labor arduus. Ter. Mau. London: Printed for &c.’ a
     treatise on phonetics with a folding leaf of sounds (printed), and
     a vocabulary to ‘Paradise Lost’. Neither of the works in this
     volume was printed.

[“Prolusions, or, select Pieces of ancient Poetry”, by E. C. 2. Vol^s.
4^o. small.]

   MS. 4.

     This entry is in Capell’s MS catalogue but the book is not in the
     collection.

A Collection of Poems, In Two Volumes; Being all the Miscellanies of Mr.
William Shakespeare, which were Publish’d by himself in the Year 1609
and now correctly Printed from those Editions. The First Volume

Passionate Pilgrim. IV. Some Sonnets set to sundry Notes of Musick. The
Second Volume contains One Hundred and Fifty Four Sonnets, all of them
in Praise of his Mistress. II. A Lover’s Complaint of his Angry
Mistress. _London: Printed for Bernard Lintott, at the Cross-Keys,
between the Two Temple-Gates in Fleet-street._

   8^o. 2 vols. in one. (6⅝ × 4¼). MS. 5.

The second leaf, signed A 2, contains an ‘Advertisement’, at the end of
which on A 2^v is the MS note ‘I gave M^r Capell the Information of the
opposite Page. R. Farmer’. Then follow two leaves containing a ‘Preface’
in Capell’s handwriting. The next leaf is B 1. The text has been
carefully corrected throughout by Capell, who has modernised the
spelling. The volume apparently contains Capell’s material for an
edition of the Poems, which however were not included in his edition of
Shakespeare’s works. The collection was published in 1709. On the
fly-leaf are the lines also in Capell’s hand:

   Βαια φαγων, και βαια πιων, και πολλα νοσησας,
     Οψε μεν, αλλ‘ εθανον; Ερρετε παντες ομου!

   Pain of all sorts to cure, Grief, Labour, Fast,
   Death of the latest came, but came at last.

*** End of this Doctrine Publishing Corporation Digital Book "Catalogue of the Books Presented by Edward Capell to the Library of Trinity College in Cambridge" ***

Doctrine Publishing Corporation provides digitized public domain materials.
Public domain books belong to the public and we are merely their custodians.
This effort is time consuming and expensive, so in order to keep providing
this resource, we have taken steps to prevent abuse by commercial parties,
including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

We also ask that you:

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Doctrine Publishing
Corporation's ISYS search for use by individuals, and we request that you
use these files for personal, non-commercial purposes.

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort
to Doctrine Publishing's system: If you are conducting research on machine
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a
large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the use of
public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help.

+ Keep it legal -  Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for
ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just because
we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States,
that the work is also in the public domain for users in other countries.
Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we
can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of any specific book is
allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Doctrine Publishing
ISYS search  means it can be used in any manner anywhere in the world.
Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.
