Note
  • A collection of 91 legends in verse
  • Originally a continuation of Lydgate's Fall of princes, by William Baldwin and others, published in 1559; a first part covering the earliest period was added later by John Higgins and Thomas Blenerhasset; the present editor, Richard Niccols, adds "A winter nights vision" containing ten additional tragedies, and "Englands Eliza." His dedication to the Earl of Nottingham, prefixed to the latter portion of the work, was suppressed but is here retained
  • "The variable fortune and vnhappie falles of such princes as hath happened since the Conquest" (i.e. part 3), "A vvinter nights vision", and "Englands Eliza" each have separate dated title page (the first dated 1609); pagination and register are continuous
  • Signatures: A8 B2 C-3K8 3L6
  • Title page vignette (printer's device); head- and tailpieces; initials
  • Leaf 2O4, a cancel, has a dedication to the Earl of Nottingham. Variant 1: with cancellandum, with a dedication to Henry, Prince of Wales.--ESTC
  • Leaf 3E3 is a cancel. Variant 2: 3E3 is uncancelled, with verso lines 10-11 with phrase "and by an analysis of euery chiefe exploit inserted in their proper places" (cancel lacks this phrase). The cancel leaf recto is signed "Niccols". Variant 3: cancel leaf signed "Nicols".--ESTC
Edition
Newly enlarged with a last part, called A winter nights vision, being an addition of such tragedies especially famous, as are exempted in the former historie, with a poem annexed, called Englands Eliza.
