Gambles IRtno of Persia 

By THOMAS PRESTON 
[c. 1584] 



This play was licensed to John A llde (the father of the printer of this 
edition) between July, 1569, and July, 1570, and Sir J. A. H. Murray, 
in the " Oxford English Dictionary,' 1 assigns the date of writing to 
"c. 1560." 

The first edition probably appeared in 1570, shortly after its entry on 
the books of the Stationers' Register. As far as at present known, this 
impression cannot be dated earlier than 1584, when Edward A llde succeeded 
his father in business. 

For what little is known of Preston consult " The Dictionary of 
National Biography . ' ' 

Mr. J. A. Herbert (of the Manuscript Department of the British 
Museum], after comparing this facsimile with the original, says that it 
is " very excellently reproduced, hardly the minutest fault to be found."
