In this re-impression of Webster's Works (which were first col
lected and edited by me in 1830) I have considerably altered both
the Text and Notes throughout, and made some slight additions to
the Memoir of the poet.
I have also excluded from the present
edition a worthless drama, which I too hastily admitted into the
former one,—The Thracian Wonder; for though it was published by
Kirkman as “written by John Webster and William Rowley," internal
evidence decides that Webster could no more have had a hand in it
than in another play called The Weakest goeth to the Wall, a portion
of which is ignorantly ascribed to him by Phillips: see p. XV., note.
