CAUSE OF THE DEFECTS.

PERSONS REPRESENTED.

Mr Kell of Furnival Street (formerly Castle Str.), Holborn, the printer of this text,—who put on stone the transfers in lithografic ink supplied to him by Mr Praetorius, --states that he has done his very best with the (often faulty) transfers supplied to him. He has lost all his profit, and more, by paying for cleanings and corrections by hand. The Museum copy of the Quarto is bad in some pages, and the negatives required more painting out of letters printedthrough, and more cleaning of the transfers, than the price of the book would (in the fotografer's opinion) stand. In this work, good transfers from the negatives are all in all.-F. J. F.

Corus. Two bousholds both alike in dignitie

,
(In faire Verona where we lay our Scene)
From auncient grudge,breake to new mutinie,
where ciuill bloud makes ciuill hands vncleane:
From forth the

fatall loynes of these two foes,
A paire of starre-croft louers take their life:
whose misaduenturd pittions ouerthrowes,
Doth with their death burie their Parents strife.
The fearfull passage of their death-markt loue,
And the continuance of their Parents rage:
Phich but their childrens end nought could remoue:
Is now the two houres trafficque of our Stage.

The which if you with patient cares attend,
what heare shall misse,our toyle shall strive to mend.
