Although this is one of the most charming and most important of the Elizabethan poetical miscellanies, it has hitherto been inaccessible to scholars. The Huntington Library copy of the first edition (1591), which is here reproduced in collotype facsimile, is the only known one. Large and significant changes were made in the second edition (1597), of which only two copies are known to exist. Hyder Edward Rollins gives full details about the variations in contents and readings between these two editions. The Introduction further discusses the editor Richard Jones and his relations with Nicolas Breton; the various authors represented; and borrowings from or allusions to the works of Thomas Nashe, Thomas Heywood,Shakespeare, and others. The Notes contain much critical, explanatory, and illustrative material.

Who among us hasn’t considered what our lives would be like if we had taken alternate paths, made different decisions? Storytellers of every stripe write of the lives we didn’t have, says Andrew H. Miller, author of On Not Being Someone Else: Tales of Our Unled Lives. As we live through a worldwide pandemic, the ideas of what might have been are even more appealing. Much like the adolescents on the verge of adulthood in Sally Rooney’s novel Normal People, Miller tells us, we wait to see what comes next.
