The circutnstances» under which the interesting tract 
contained in this repri,t bas corne to iight9 are 
as follows. 1 had ah'eady some years ago received in- 
telligence that a few old Eglish books of Shakespeare's 
time were in the public library of Zurich. Dt'. J. 
Horner» the Chier Librat'ian of the "Stadtbibliothek"» 
had the kindness to transmit them successively to 
me: amongst then 1 found also the no,el of 
George Wilkins and perceiving it to be ider, tical with 
that mentioned by Mr. Collier in his Shakespeare 
Vol. VIII. p. œeG72fig.» and struck with a great many 
passages of surprising beauty9 besides lhe line narrative 
style of the whole» I had a nind to republish it. But 
before I set to work9 1 applied to ny most honoured 
ff'tend Blr. Collier to tell me whether it had been 
ah'eady reprinted or hot" for9 manv bools being only 
printed for pt'ivate circulation» a foreigner» although 
attentive to every thing Shakespearean at home and 
abroad» may easily be mistaken as to a novelty of 
the ki,d. 1Mr. Collier was kind enough fo inform 
me that there was only one perfect copy of it i, Eng- 
land» and that in the possession of a gentleman» who was 
Preface A. 


unwilling to allow it to be reprinted. ! then thought 
it my duty to give it inslantly to the public» ad an 
intelliget publisher ailowing me the immediate use 
of his prin/ing-oftice» and afterwards offering to publish 
the iittle book» bh'. Collier and myself abandoned the 
plan tirst adopted» of/'eprinting it at out own expence 
as a private publication. 
As to lhe origin of lhese bool, s and their turning 
up in Switzerland» Dr. Horner states to me that they 
were» nine in nunbel' first bound together in one 
volume which bad formerly belonged to [he Swiss po- 
et Martin Usteri (b. at Zurich in 1741 d. [here 
1827.)» [he author of [he OlCe most popular Ana-

were cut off by the binder, on separating and re- 
binding the pieces» but Dr. Horner renwmbers the 
date to bave been either 1614 or 1618. This Johann 
Rudolph Hess (probably the saine that was Director 
of the Arsenal (Zeughaus) and 5Iember of lhe Great 
Councii) was born in 15S8 and died in 16555 he may» 
as was customary with young gentlemen in easy cir- 
cumstances» bave gone to England abou 161:1» fo 
complete his education» and have brought home some 
ot" the plays which he saw acted at the l_,ondon Ihea- 
tres» and which he liked best. 
Respecting the importance of the tract» we 
refer out readers to what lr. Collier» (.fo whom 
we are indebted for the first indication of this 


novel in 1839» as also for its first application to 
the mutilated drama of Pericles as it bas corne down 
to us under the naine of Shakespea'e) savs of it in 
his Work entitled Shakespeare's Library., ISII vol. 
in the Preface to Twine's Novel p. 11 and in his 
Edition of Shakespeare» vol. VIII. p. 267--269.

The conformity of the novel wilh the play being 
sometines aimost literal, ma,y other instances might 
be brought forward of new attd very plausible read- 
ings (e. g. to read III 2. "from Tyre" istead of 
"for Tyre'" Coli. Sh. VIII» 311» 23 Vili« 6» 20. and 
46» 11.) of conjectures SUlpOl'ted (e. g. ib. III» 3. 
Coll. Vill. p. 321. hot. 5. Wilk. 52» 34. to read un- 
cissar'd and hair instead of unsisterd and heir) 
or confitte(l. But it is hot ont business here to an- 
/icil)ate the observations of fiture editors of "Pet'i- 
cics"5 we wish otdy to direct the altcntiot of out 
Shalçespeareans to this curious novel and to leae 
it to abler hands to make tkdl use of it. 
In Fact the whole seems to bave been worked 
up bo/h from Shakespeare's play attd the noel of 
AI)ollonius Tyrius as it was translated by Laxrence 
Twine» which» together with Gower's version From 
G()lFridus Viterbiensis is known to have been the 
source of Shakespeare» and was as Stlch rei)rinted 
bv 5Ir. Collier in his "Shal, espeare's Library" Vol. 1. 
p. IS3--257. On a carefid cotnparison it will al,l,ear » 
that llle coincidences l)etween Twine and Wilkins 
are Ioo numerous and too literai to be ascribed to 
tnere chance. The very litle and head-line of out 
novel was /aken from Twine, who inscribed it: The 
Pattcrne of the painefull zld,«enh«res; only Will, ins 
had "A Patterne etc. but» by inadvertency he seems 
fo have left "'Thc'" in lhe fit'st head-line (p. 12). Auy 
direct del)endance of 'iil, ins on Gower is hot 
On the other hand» we ntust confess» that out 


novel is not only well written» and» for lhe easy flow 
of llle narrative tastes of Herodolean sweetness (as 
a friend of mine judiciously observed) but that it 
bas also some passages which by lheir force of argu- 
ment, bv heir descripive vivacity or felicity of imagery 
a,d expression seem vastly superior to lhe powers of 
any George Wilkins and are neverlheless» sought i, vain 
in olher sources or in lhe Drama such as we possess it. 
It mtst not however be overlooked: lhat Wilkins 
was a poct: and lhat we mav suppose him lo have 
copied lhe style of ShaKespeare. O/' his person we k,ow 
liltle or no/hing at least G. Langbaine ' onlv savs of 
him: tilat he was "an attthor lhat liv'd in lhe reign 
of l, ing Charles I. (we shouhl ralher say lhat he 
wrote under King James 1.)» who was the writer of a 
single comedy besides lhat in which lle joined with

Of 'The Miseries" we agree with 5Ir. Rapp  that the 
style strongly rivais ShaKespeare and that we are every- 
where reminded of the ludicrous scenes in Henry IV. As to 
the tract last mentioned (which 1 have hot seen) it 
"is written in an ambitious st)l% and the descrip- 
tions are often striking» but there is nothing but the 
similarity oF the naine to connect it with The Miseries 
of lnforced Marriage." To the uncommon rarity of 
"The Painfill Aduentures of Pericles" it must be ascrib- 
ed» that the attthor's naine» as connected with Shake- 
speare's Pericle% seems to have remained «nknown hi- 
therto. Being one of the minor dramatists of the rime he 
was most l)robably enployed by a booKseller to adapt 
the incidents oF the new and favourite play for the read- 
i»g public» and xhat had been most unsuccessfullv

bowed down under afflictiot ri'oto his losses. They 
are in the Latin texts hitherto known bolh of Welser 
and the Gesta Romanorum,  Godfi'ey having no

To returli to the English translations Ihat of 
Lav, rence Twine is although indil'ectly, apparently 
more depeldant on eithel" Welser or the Gesta than 
on the above mentioned IISS. One instance may 
suffice. The third (or fourth) Riddle (The Bath) is 


the only one not consisting of a triplet the fourlh 
line being an awkward and ahnost unintelligible ad- 
dition. Twine bas it as follows: 
There is an house Ihrough which the tire 
dolh passe, and doth no harme: 
Thercin is hcat, which none nlay moove: 
from thcnce, it is so warme: 
A naled house, and in Ihat house 
guests naked d«c desire 
To dwell, from «hcnce 
lhen f«ll you in lhe tire. 
which agrees wilh Welser's text: 
Per totas aedes innoxius introit ignis, 
Est calot in lnedio maguus, quem nemo removil: 
Non est nuda domus, nudus sed convertit hospes, 
Si luctum ponercs (i/s. ponas), insons imrares (Il«. imrabis) 
in igncs. 
and with that of lhe Gesla» although it be much more 
corrupt and very bad verse: 
Per rotes ci aedes innoxius ie pertra»s#, 
Est calot in medio lnagnus, quem lWlnO relnovit; 
Non est nuda doluus, nudus sed COllVenit hospes; 
Si luctum poneres, inttocetts inlrares in ignes. 
but by no means with the 51S8. of Symposius» which 
give it wilhout any fourlh line: 
Per tolas acdcs innoxius inh'oit ignis: 
Et calot in lli('dio lllalHIS qucm 11¢111o

It is impossible fo value too highly the tract of 
which an exact reprint is con/ained lu lhe foilowig 
sheets. The origiual is most probably the only 
complete copy in existence: I have a fragment of it, 
which 1 ob/ained ab,.,ut ten years ago+ but it has 
neither begimiug nor end" ano[her exenplar» hi[her[o 
deemed perfect; conlaining both [he ttle-page and 
the termiuation is in the hands of a private Eglish 
gentleman» who bought it at the cost of more than 
L. 20 at the sale of Heber's Library in 1834. Here 
the Dedication "to the right worshipfid and most 
worthy Gentleman» 1Master Henry Fermor'" is wanting 
and when I wrote upon the subject of ils intiumte 
comexion with Shakespeare's "Pe'icles»" about eighteen 
years ago» I was entirely ignorant of lhe important 
fact» that the production was the authorship of Ge- 
orge Wiikius a dramatist of considerable distinction 
whose play» called "The IXliseries of enforced IXlarriage" 
was so popular that it went through four editions 
between 1607 when it was [irst published» and 1637 
when the last old impression ruade its appearance. 
I did hot become acquainted with the circumstance 



that Wilkins was the wriler of the ensui:g novel 
until after ! had sent the followi,g commutica[ion lo 
[he "A[hcnaeum»" which 1 here beg leave to subjoin» 
as part of my Introduction. 

"The readers of the ¢tthenaeum mav like to hear 
something more regal'ding a lraet» vilh which my 
naine was eo,neeted» in a paragraph in |he zlthe- 
lttetttlt of Febvuavy 7. 1! was correel.]v stated that 
I ['ormerly lwinted tifty copies of a stnall publication 
dew»ted principa[ly to an accomtt of that tract» vhich 
is certainly; on every ground the most cuvious that 
has fidlen under my observation in the course of mv 
lire: it is unique in its eharaeter, and until reeently 
| never heard of more tha one olhet' lwrfeet eopy 
of it independently of a cotsiderable fi'agment in 
my ow hands. It now turs out that l|lere is a 
third perfeet eopy i, a Swiss library» whieh had once 
belonged to a foreigner who visited London about the 
rime of Shakespeare's death. 1 may add that it is 
now being reprinted in German ad that it well 
deserves the distinction. 
"lt is a narrative fi)u(led upon Shakespeare's 
"Pericles»" which was lirst acted it 1,07 or 160S. 
Val'ious novêls are k,own of which Sllakespeare a- 
vailed himself in other plays» such as "'The Winters 
Tale," "As You Like lt &c. but the l>roduc|ion I 
atn now speaking of differs fi'on ail others i this 
respect -- that» i»stead of having had a drama found- 
ed upon it» it was itself founded upon a dralna and 
that drama "Pericles." 



"lt is now ! believe» g(nerally admitted that» 
v«he a pla.y was unusually popular, it was the habit 
of certain booksellers» in the rime of Shakespeare» to 
einploy shorthand wriers {o {ake down in the the- 
atre» as much of the dialogue as the.+ couhl and fo 
publish the transcribed noes as the play i{self. Such» 
we may be sure» was the case with "Hamlet" and 
"Romeo and Juliet," to which the excellent letter of 
ProE Mommsen» it the lhenacmn of February 7 se- 
para[ely api»lies. Whv {he sane course was hot pur- 
sued in the case o "Pericles" does hot appear. 
Perhaps in 1607 or lfi0S the trick was becoming 
somewhat stale» and the bookseller lhought that he 
could make a better thing of a publication in a nar- 
rative rotin» but distinctly stated on the title-page to 
be derived ff'oto a play then daily represented with 
great applause. Hence the tract 1 atn now directing 
attention to» which is called» and I quote the terres 
literally» "The painfltll Adventures of Pericles Price 
of T-re. Being tle true History of the Play of Pe- 
ric]es» at it was lately presented by the worthy and 
ancient Poet John Gower. At London. Printed bv 
T. P. for Nat. Butter. 160S." It is in quart% and 
consists of forty leaves hcluding the title-page iu 
the cenlre of which there is a woodcut of John Gower 
with a staff in one hand and a bunch o ba)s in 
the other5 while belote him upon a table lies a 
book» which we may suppose to be a copy of his 
"Confessio Amantis" containing as is well known 
a version of the story oç "Pericles" u,der the naine 
of Apollonius oç Tyre. His dress» as rel»resented in the

woodcut, merits notice inasmuch as it is i1 ail pro- 
bal)ility such as tbe actor wore v«ho played the part 
of Gowe' and who spoke the Prologue ami inte'h»-

ing iust below the knee. in my fifly copies of he

fic-simile of tbis itte'estiug (h'ama/ic relic. 
"Now to sl)eak a iittle more particularly of the 
cotttetts of Ihis litet'ary rarity. It lwofesses, as we 
have seen by the /i/le-page, to give the "history of

when "by the King's 51ajesties Players it was excel- 
lently presented." The King's 51ajesty's Players of 
course cosisted of the company to which Shakespeare 
had been always attached which performed in the 
summer at the Globe on Ihe Banksid% and in the 
winter at tbe Blackfi'iars. 
"lt has always been lamented that i so few old 
dramas lisls of cbaracters are supplied; but here they 
are furished as tbe accompaniment to a mere nar- 
ralio and» sitce lhe uames almost entirely accor(! 
with those fout(I in Shakespeare's "Pericles," though 
hot pretixed to it it is needless to isert them here.

"I ara anxious in xvhat follows» and with as much 
brevity as possible» to establish two points:- !» That 
the novel befi»re us very tnuch adopls lhe language 
of ihe play 5 2» That it ot unh'equetlv sutTlies por- 
tions of the play» as it was acted in lfi07 or 160S+ 
which have not corne down to ils in attv of the print- 
ed copies o Percles. The last is infiitely the 
mot'e importattt» because we may Ihereby recover» 
i»'o tatdo, a lost portion of the lalguage of Shake- 
speat'e. 1 proceed to prove9 in the tirst llace» lhat 
the novel ad the play are» in some sort» identical. 
"In lhe novel» xvhen Pericles, undeterred by Ihe 
waring of Antiochus» insists upon attempting Ihe so- 
lution of the enigma» it is said  
• "But Periclcs, armed with lhese noble armours, Failhfulness 
and I',ourage, and making himsclf fit for de'a/h, if dealh proved 
fit for him, r3,1ied , that he was corne now to mcet death willingly." 
In the play» Pericles relis Antiochus»  
"Like a b«,ld champit, n I assume lhe lists, 
Nor ask adice of any olher lhought, 
But failhftthless and courage."  (Act 1, sc. 1.) 
"The following is lhe account Pericles gives of hiln- 
self- in the third pet'son- in the novel" 
"A gcnlleman of Tyrc, his naine Pericles, his educai«n

reft both of ships and meg, and, after shil»wreck, lhrown upon 
that short." 
How does this passage appear in the play? It ruas 
thus in Shakespeare's verse-  
"A gentleman of Tvre (my nam • Pericl«s. 
My cducation been in al'iS and arms), 


famous scene in the brothel where Marina reforms 
Lvsimachus and thus addresses him: -- 
"Do you kuov this house Io bc a place of such resort, and 
will you corne inlo it? 1 hcar say, you are of honourable parts, 
attd arc Ihc I;overnor of Ihis place." 
This is ail she is ruade to utter in the play ai this 
tire% with lhe exception of the subsequet, t lines9 which 
corne after a short speech of persevering importunity 
by Lvsimachus : 
"If vou were born to honour, show it now: 
If pul upon you, make the judgment good, 
That lhought you worlh) of il." 
"lnstead of these two passages we read as follows 
in the l)rose narrative: -- 
"If as you say, my lord, vou are the governor, let hOt vour 
authority, which shouhl teach you Io fuie others, be the means 
to make w)u misgovern yom'self. If the eminence of )our place 
came ratio )ou bv descent, and lhe royally of vour blood, let 
not )'out lire prove your birlh a baslard: if il were lhrown upon 
volt by opini«m, make good Ihat opinion was Ihe cause to make 
vou grèal. What reason is there in vour juslice, who halh power 
over all, fo undo any? If ou take li'om me mine honour, )ou 
are like him that makes a gap inlo forlfidden ground, aftêr vhom 
I«o manv chier, ait(1 )ou are guill)" of all Iheir evils. /ly life is yet 
unspolted, my chaslit)' unstained in thought: then, il' vour violence 
dcface lhis building, thc worknmnshil) of heaven, ruade up tor 
good, anti not fo be the exercise of sin's intemperance, you do 
kill vour own honour, abuse )out own justice, and impoverish me.'" 

"If these thoughts and this language be not the 
thoughts and the language of Shakespeare 1 ana much 
ntisIaken: and bave read hi to little purpose. 1 
might add much mol'e9 and furnish many other quo- 



tations to the saine effect» but I hope soon to receive 
a few copies of the whole of the tract ri'oto Ger- 
many» in a reprinted shap% and then such as think 
with me» as regards the preceding extracts» will be 
able to gratify themselves to the fidl. I have here 
necessarily adverted to some points that l have 
touched elsewhere; but I date sav that few of the 
readers of the .4lhenaeum have seen my remarks." 

1 shouhl have been hal)l»y to have said a great 
deal more upon the subject had 1 been aware at 
an earlier period» that some prefatory matter was 
expected from me bv mv acconplished friend 
the Editor of the present Reprint» so well known in 
Germany for his intima[e and critical acquaintanc( 
with English dramatic literature, lu the ensuing tract 
we have distinct evi(iettce that Wilkins attended the 
public performance of Shakespeare's "Pericles'" for 
the purpose of taking notes of the drama as it was 
delivered ri'oto the mouths of the Actors; and being 
himself a poet of reputation and genius he afterwards 
put his nmmoranda into a narrative which was publish- 
ed by one of the most celebrated booksellers of the day. 
Itis this novel so compounded and COml>ose(i  that 
is now» after the lapse of nearly two centuries and 
a half most accuratelv reprinted; and it is my firm 
conviction that it snpplies many passages» written 
by Shakespeare and recited bv the performers» which 
were garbled mangled» or omitted in the printed 
Play of "Pel'icles»'" as it has corne down to us in the 
quartos of 1609» 1619 and 1630 and in the folios of 



1664 and 1685. 5lay hot the saine course have 
been pursued with some of the greater works of 
Shakespeare with his "ttamlet" "5lacbeth»" '-Lear»" 
"Tempest" or "Othello"?

[20]ing, that he had now power Io rip him open to Ihe worid,
