The songs, I suppose, were lost, because they were not inserted in the players parts, from which the drama was printed.

JOHNSON. P. 158. 1. 28. Now to scape tbe serpent's tongue.] That is if we be dismissed without hisses.

Johnson. L. 31. Give me your bands.] That is, Clap your hands. Give us your applause.

JOHNSON. Ibid.] of this play there are two editions in quarto, one printed for Thomas Fisher, the other for James Roberts, both in 1600. I have used the copy of Roberts, very carefully collated, as it seems, with that of Fisher. Neither of the editions approach to exactness. Fisher is sometimes preferable, but Roberts was followed, though not without some variations, by Hemings and Condel, and they by all the folios that succeeded them.

Johnson. Ibid.] Of this play, wild and fantastical as it is, all the parts in their various modes are well written, and give the kind of pleasure which the author designed, Fairies in his time were much in fashion; common tradition had made them familiar, and Spenser's poem had made them great.
