pg 567Introduction

choice of the copy text

The copy text is normally the first printing, on the theory that its accidentals are likely to be closest to the author's practice; but a manuscript or a subsequent printing may be chosen where there is reasonable evidence either that it represents more accurately the original manuscript as finally revised by the author or that the author revised the accidentals.

reproduction of the copy text

The copy text is normally reprinted literatim, but there are certain classes of exceptions. In the first place, apparently authoritative variants found in other texts are introduced as they occur, except that their purely accidental features are made to conform to the style of the copy text. These substitutions, but not their minor adjustments in accidentals, are recorded in footnotes as they occur. In the second place, the editors have introduced nonauthoritative emendations, whether found in earlier texts or not, where the sense seems to demand them. These emendations are also listed in the footnotes. In the third place, accidentals, speech headings, stage directions, scene headings, and so forth, are introduced or altered where it seems helpful to the reader. All such changes also are recorded in footnotes as they occur. In the fourth place, turned b, q, d, p, n, and u are accepted as q, b, p, d, u, and n, respectively, and if they result in spelling errors are corrected in the text and listed in the footnotes. The textual footnotes show the agreements among the texts only with respect to the precise variation of the present edition from the copy text; for example, in The Duke of Guise at IV, iv, 178, the footnote "Phœnix]D; Phœnix Q1–3, F" has reference to the change from italics to romans; D actually hyphenates this word with the next, "Phœnix-Race."

Certain purely mechanical details have been normalized without special mention. Long "s" has been changed to round "s," "VV" to "W"; swash italics have been represented by plain italics; head titles and any accompanying rules, act and scene headings, and display initials and any accompanying capitalization, have been made uniform with the style of the present edition; when a speech begins in the middle of a verse line, it has been appropriately indented; the position of speech headings and stage directions and their line division have been freely altered (braces in the speech tags have been omitted; those in the stage directions have been replaced by brackets); wrong font, and turned letters other than q, b, p, d, u, and n have been adjusted; medial apostrophes that failed to print have been restored; italicized plurals in -'s have been distinguished (by italic final "s") from possessives (roman final "s"); quotations have been marked with inverted commas at the beginning and end only and always; spacing between pg 568words and before and after punctuation has been normalized when no change in meaning results; the common contractions have been counted as single words, but otherwise words abbreviated by elision have been separated from those before and after if the apostrophe is present; if the elided syllable is written out as well as marked by an apostrophe, the words have been run together ("speak'it").

textual notes

The textual notes list the relevant manuscripts and printings, assign them sigla, and give references to the bibliographies where they are more fully described. Normally only the seventeenth-century manuscripts and the printed editions through Congreve's (1717)1 are cited, since there is normally no likelihood that authoritative readings will be found in any later manuscripts or editions. The textual notes also outline the descent of the text through its various manuscripts and printings, indicate which are the authorized texts, and explain how the copy text was selected in each instance. A list of copies collated follows. If the differences between variant copies are sufficient to warrant a tabular view of them, it will follow the list of copies collated.

The sigla indicate the format of printed books (F = folio, Q = quarto, O = octavo, etc.) and the order of printing, if this is determinable, within the format group (F may have been printed after Q1 and before Q2). If order of printing is in doubt, the numbers are arbitrary, and they are normally arbitrary for the manuscripts (represented by M).

Finally the variants in the texts collated are given. The list is not exhaustive, but it records what seemed material, viz.:

All variants of the present edition from the copy text except in the mechanical details listed above.

All other substantive variants and variants in accidentals markedly affecting the sense. The insertion or removal of a period before a dash has sometimes been accepted as affecting the sense; other punctuational variants before dashes have been ignored. Failure of letters to print, in texts other than the copy text, has been noted only when the remaining letters form a different word or words, or when a word has disappeared entirely.

All errors of any kind repeated from one edition to another, except the use of -'s instead of -s for a plural.

Spelling variants where the new reading makes a new word (e.g., then and than being in Dryden's day alternate spellings of the conjunction, a change from than to then would be recorded, since the spelling then is now confined to the adverb, but a change from then to than would be ignored as a simple modernization).

In passages of verse, variants in elision of syllables normally pro-pg 569nounced (except that purely mechanical details, as had'st, hadst, are ignored). Thus heaven, heav'n is recorded, but not denied, deny'd.

Relining, except when passages printed as prose are reprinted as prose.

When texts generally agree in a fairly lengthy variation, but one or two differ from the rest in a detail that would be cumbrous to represent in the usual way, the subvariations are indicated in parentheses in the list of sigla. For example:

Blois.] Bloise. Q1–3, F, D (~, Q3).

This means that Q3 agrees with Q1–2, F, and D in all respects except that it has a comma instead of a period.

When variants in punctuation alone are recorded, the wavy dash is used in place of the identifying word before (and sometimes after) the variant punctuation. A caret indicates absence of punctuation.

As in the previous volumes, no reference is made to modern editions where the editor is satisfied that reasonable care on his part would have resulted in the same emendations, even if he collated these editions before beginning to emend.

The seventeenth-century printings were compared with the help of a computer and a Hinman collator.

The Kind Keeper

The first edition of The Kind Keeper; or, Mr. Limberham (Q1; Macd 85a) is dated 1680 (advertised in the Term Catalogue in November 1679), the second edition (Q2; Macd 85b) 1690. A third edition, dated 1701 (Macd 85c) is not noted in the apparatus. The play was also reprinted in Dryden's Comedies, Tragedies, and Operas (1701), II, 105–148 (F; Macd 107ai–ii [two issues, the differences not affecting this play]), and in Congreve's edition of Dryden's Dramatick Works (1717), IV, 273–366 (D; Macd 109ai–ii [two issues, the differences not affecting this play]). Q2, F, and D were all set from copies of Q1, Q2 line for line and page for page, F from a copy that lacked the prologue leaf. The text of D through III, i, 17 (i.e., sigs. M5–N12v) exists in two settings, page for page and usually line for line the same, distinguished by Hhighness on the title page of the first setting of sig. M, and Kepeer in the headline of p. 303in the second setting of sig. N. The order of the settings is determinable from their relative closeness to Q1 in substantives and accidentals.

In the dedication (p. 6 above) Dryden says he revised the text for the first edition but did not read proof, and he promises to make more revisions in the second edition. He did not, in fact, revise Q2, but, as it happens, we have some evidence of his revisions for Q1. Edmund Malone, in his annotated copy of Biographia Dramatica (Bodleian Library, Malone 156), II, 178, quotes from a manuscript of the play (now lost) which had been corrected by Dryden. Malone's notes are not perfectly clear, but it would appear that Woodall was named Stains in the manuscript, and Mrs. Tricksy, Damaris; and that "A punk of two descents" (I, i, 276 [p. 17 above]) was written above pg 570"Very punk of very punk," which was crossed out. In addition, the manuscript evidently included the passage below, headed "Act IV" by Malone; its more exact location is problematic:

Stains. Twill be time to marry at threescore when I have enough but for one woman: to engage before, would be the direct way to sin. I cannot confine my appetite to Manna yet.

Ger. And then you will be past tasting it.

Stains. I warrant thee. Our family is good winter fruit: true bon Chretien. My father's an example of it. Marry me now, and I shall beget an offspring of young rouges [sic] to supplant my pleasure as I do his.

We are indebted to David Foxon for an exact transcript of Malone.

Dryden not having revised Q2, the copy text for the present edition is a Clark copy of Q1 (*PR3417.N1, cop. 1), emended as shown in the footnotes. The following copies of the various editions have also been examined: Q1: Clark (*PR3417.N1, cop. 2), Folger (D2206h, v. 3), Harvard (EC65.D8474. 680k), Huntington (D2297.122828); Q2: Clark (*PR3417.N1.1690, cop. 1; *PR3417.1679, v. 2, no. 7; *PR341o.C93); F: Clark (*fPR3412.17o1 [2 cop.]; *fPR3412.1701a); D: Clark (*PR3412.1717, cop. 1 [second setting of sig. M]; PR3412.1717, cop. 2 [second setting of sig. N]; PR3412.1717a [second setting of sigs. M, N]); Folger (PR3416.A1.1717b, v. 4 cage [second setting of sigs. M, N]); Maximillian E. Novak (personal copy).

The Spanish Fryar

The first edition of The Spanish Fryar or, The Double Discovery was published in 1681 (Q1, Macd 86a). Two settings of the title page are known, the rarer and possibly the first having the subtitle in romans instead of black letter. The second edition is dated 1686 (Q2, Macd 86b), the third, 1690 (Q3, Macd 86c), and a fourth, 1695 (Q4, Macd 86d). An edition of 1704, calling itself the second (Macd 86e), is not noticed in the apparatus. The play was pg 578also reprinted in Dryden's Comedies, Tragedies, and Operas (1701), II, 257–308 (F; Macd 107ai–ii [two issues, the differences not affecting this play]), and in Congreve's edition of Dryden's Dramatick Works (1717), V, 123–221 (D; Macd 109ai–ii [two issues, the differences not affecting this play]). The song in Act V, with a musical setting, appears on fol. 20v; of a folio music manuscript that belonged to Charles Campelman (dated in his hand "June ye 9 1681," with the notation below in another hand, "God giue him grace 1682"); the song is in Campelman's hand (M; British Library Add. MS 19,759). The song was also published in the second edition of Female Poems … by Ephelia (1682), pp. 116–118 (O1; Macd p. 123 n. 4), where it is titled "The Farewel to Ingratitude" and has an extra stanza (the second) as follows:

  • O Love, thou art a Treasure,
  •    Would Constancy remain;
  • But for one hour of pleasure
  •    We find an age of pain.
  • How eager is the Lover,
  • Poor Women may discover,
  •    The Vows of Men are vain.
  • Poor Women, &c.

Presumably this stanza is not by Dryden.

The song was also printed in Wit and Drollery (1682), pp. 305–306 (O2; Wing W3133), where it is titled "The Farewell," and in John Shirley's The Compleat Courtier (1683), pp. 139–140 (Ds; Wing S3503), where it is titled "Song." It appeared also, with seven additional stanzas, in a broadside, Olimpya's Unfortunate Love. Or Gallius his Treacherous Cruelty, about 1693–1695 (B; Wing O289). The additional stanzas, presumably not by Dryden, may be found in The Roxburghe Ballads, VI (1889), 22.

In British Library Add. MS 35,043, fols. 26v–27r, is "A New Song Sung in the Spanish Fryer Set by Mr Henry Purcell." Purcell's autograph, in the Guildhall Library, London, Gresham College MS, fols. 67v–68v, has the title "On Mrs Bracegirdle Singing (I Burn &c) in ye play of Don Quixote." It was printed in Deliciae Musicae (1695), pp. 27–28, in Orpheus Britannicus (1698), pp. 4–8, and in two broadsides of about 1696, one engraved by T. Cross (Wing D2318B), one engraved for I. [i.e., John] Walsh (Wing D2319). A setting by Godfrey Finger appeared in Thesaurus Musicus (1695), p. 5. The text in Orpheus Britannicus is as follows:

  • Whilst I with grief did on you look,
  •    When Love had turn'd your Brain,
  • From you, I the contagion took,
  •    And for you bore [MSS: bear] the pain:
  • Marcella, then your Lover prize,
  •    And be not too severe;
  • Use well the conquest of your Eyes,
  •    For Pride has cost you dear.
  • Ambrosio treates your Flames with scorn,
  •    And racks your tender mind,
  • pg 579Withdraw your Smiles, and Frowns return,
  •    And pay him in his kind.

The Clark Library has A Song in the Spanish Frier set by Mṛ John Eccles—Sung by TEXTUAL NOTES Hodgson and exactly engrav'd by Tho: Cross, a broadside dating from the 1690s, with the following text (repetitions deleted):

  • Sylvia how cou'd you e're mistrust
  •    a Passion so sincerely true
  • Why wou'd you be to me unjust
  •    for fear I shou'd be so to you
  • Such fears will teach us to despise
  •    your pow'r which else wou'd fatal prove.
  • oh! trust to the brightness of her Eyes
  •    and yeild to the soft God of Love.

These words are presumably not by Dryden either.

Q2, F, and D were all set from copies of Q1, Q3 was set from a copy of Q2, Q4 from a copy of Q3. Three passages were omitted from Q2, one reflecting on the Catholic religion (Prologue, ll. 12–13 [p. 105 above]), one denouncing a council that no honest man will serve and "A Government that… lives on Tricks" (IV, ii, 15–19 [p. 167 above]) and one denouncing "those who dote on Arbitrary Power" (IV, ii, 311–319 [pp. 176–177 above]). Presumably the licenser, whose office had just been revived, demanded the omissions, or the publisher made them to obviate possible objections by the licenser. Dryden as a new Catholic might have been willing to rescind his attack on his religion, but he would presumably have done more than excise the third passage, since the excision upsets the grammar of the following lines. The three passages were restored in Q3 and five more were added, two concerning Friar Dominic (after "Pimp" and after "once" in II, iii, 4 [p. 132 above]), one reflecting on churchmen (after "silence" in III, ii, 29 [p. 142 above]), one concerning the weakness of the loyal party in the play (after III, iii, 23 [p. 149 above]), and one suggesting that "Courtiers are to be accounted good" unless they are "the last and worst of men" (after IV, ii, 21 [p. 167 above]). The restored passages and the five additions presumably derive from Dryden's holograph before he had completed his revisions for Q1. The author of The Hind and the Panther is unlikely to have restored a passage indicating that "Rome's Religion" was completely different from "St. Peter's days" (Prologue, ll. 12–13). The first two additions anticipate Elvira's last speech in the play (p. 199 above), which like the first addition includes the words "The Church is an indulgent Mother," and the sentence in which the second addition occurs reads more smoothly with the insertion than without. The addition concerning churchmen gives Lorenzo a very long speech, quite off the subject that ought to be most on his mind. He apologizes for it almost at once, an apology that is less motivated in Q1, since his speech there consists only of a necessary reply to a remark by Elvira. The addition concerning the weakness of the loyal party is illogical, because at this point in the play there is no loyal party or any known prince around whom such a party could rally. The palliation of courtiers' faults does not fit in the mouth of one of the loyal party when the party begins to form. Dryden never did straighten out his history of the loyal party, whose leader is Raymond. When pg 580Raymond first appears, he says he had expected to find the rightful king on the throne when he returned to his country after many years, yet later in the same scene (in the second passage omitted from Q2), he indicates that the usurping government is scorned abroad, and still later he shows Torrismond a document the king gave him during a rebellion, directing him to raise the king's only surviving son in secret, to revenge his father at a later time.

Less compelling evidence that Dryden did not revise Q2 or Q3 is the fact that both follow Q1 in printing passages of prose as verse.

Since Q1 appears to reflect Dryden's last revision of the play, the Clark copy of Q1 (*PR3418.H1) has been chosen as the copy text for the present edition, emended as shown in the footnotes, and with the use of romans and italics reversed in the dedication. Because the restored and added passages in Q3 appear to trace back to a state of the play antedating Q1, readers will wish to consider whether the other readings first printed in Q3 have or had authority.

The Duke of Guise

The first edition of The Duke of Guise was published in 1683 (Q1; Macd 87a). The second edition is dated 1687 (Q2; Macd 87b), the third 1699 (Q3; Macd 87c–d [two issues, one with a cancel title page in two variants, one giving Wellington and Rombull and the other giving Wellington and Rumball (the correct spelling) as publishers instead of Tonson]). The play was also reprinted in Dryden's Comedies, Tragedies, and Operas (1701), II, 261–304 (2d ser.) (F; Macd 1o7ai–ii [two issues, the differences not affecting this play]), and in Congreve's edition of Dryden's Dramatick Works (1717), V, 223–309 (D; Macd 1o9ai–ii [two issues, the differences not affecting this play]). The prologue and epilogue had been separately published in 1682 (dated 1683), together with "Another Epilogue Intended to have been Spoken to the Play, before it was forbidden, last Summer. Written by Mr. Dryden" (Fp; Macd 101). The additional epilogue was not published with the play. The prologue, mistakenly titled "The Epilogue to the Play of the Duke of Guyse," occurs in British Library Add. MS 27, 408, fols. 17r–18r (M1), a folio sheet in a seventeenth-century scribal hand bound in a collection of manuscripts. After line 42, M1 has two lines not found in the printed texts, but which may well have been written by Dryden:

  • And let their Majesties the Shreeves, take care
  • To hang all Tories, and all Whiggs to spare.

Some of the other unique readings may well represent a prepublication state of the text.

In Q1 and D the song in Act V was printed at the end of the act. In Q1 it is on an unsigned gathering of its own and has the music. It was also printed with the music as a broadside, titled Love and Jealousie, 1683 (B; Wing D2301), and in Playford's Choice Ayres and Songs, The Fourth Book, 1683, pp. 80–81 (Fs; Wing P2460), where it has the title, "A Dialogue betwixt a Shepherd and Shepherdess." It also occurs in three music manuscripts in the British Library, Add. MS 19,759, fols. 44v–45r (M2); Add. MS 29,397, fols. pg 59125r–26v (M3); and Royal College of Music MS 1119, fols, 9v–10r (M4). M2 is a folio manuscript that belonged to Charles Campelman (dated in his hand "June ye 9. 1681," with the annotation below in another hand, "God give him grace 1682"); the song is in Campelman's hand. M3 is a small oblong manuscript, dated by a modern annotator 1682–1690 on internal evidence. M4 is a folio manuscript in a seventeenth-century hand.

Fp was probably the copy for the prologue and epilogue in Q1. Lee (presumably) made important proof corrections in both forms of signature E in Q1 (HI, i, 123–394). The alteration on E2v of

  • So once a day I may have leave to taste
  • These Hybla Lips. Nay, Madam, then you fear me


  • So once a day I may have leave———
  • Nay, Madam, then you fear me (11. 247–248)

ay not seem very likely to be authorial (it may seem more likely that the compositor could not read "to taste / These Hybla Lips" and had to wait for Lee to decipher the words), but the other variations in the form show that the change must be as just stated. In particular, the reading on Elr, "thou hast said,' not" (l. 142) must be a correction of "thou say'st, not," not merely because of the improvement to the meter but because the meaningless apostrophe after "said," is left over from "say'st," that is, the compositor or pressman mistook it for a space when correcting the type. We have accepted what seems to us to be the better state of the inner form as the corrected state, even though a word is missing from line 334, and all its other unique readings could be argued against. Our sense of what seems to be the better state is reinforced by our sense that the page number on E2r, which in that state lacks a digit, is more likely to have been disturbed than to have been corrected in the other state. Q2, F, and D were all set from copies of Q1, but only F was set from a copy with corrected outer E. Q3 was set from a copy of Q2.

A Clark copy of Q1 (*FR3417.J1, cop. 1) has been taken as the copy text of the present edition, emended as shown in the footnotes and with the use of romans and italics reversed in the dedication. The corrected readings on outer E were inserted from the Harvard copy (EC65.D8474.683d). We have adopted D's emendation of the punctuation in II, i, 93, because it improves the grammar, but without any conviction that the resulting sense is correct. After the epilogue we have inserted the additional epilogue from Fp, and we have moved the song into its place in Act V, as in Q2–3 and F.

The Vindication of The Duke of Guise

The Vindication: Or The Parallel of the French Holy-League, and the English League and Covenant, Turn'd into a Seditious Libell against the King and his Royal Highness, by Thomas Hunt and the Authors of the Reflections upon the Pretended Parallel in the Play called The Duke of Guise was first published in 1683 (Q; Macd 130). Remainder copies were bound with some copies of the 1699 edition of The Duke of Guise. The Vindication was reprinted in Congreve's edition of Dryden's Dramatick Works (1717), V, 311–362 (D; Macd 109ai–ii [two issues, the differences not affecting The Vindication]). There is no evidence that Dryden revised the text after publication, so a Clark copy of Q (#PR3419.V71 [cop. 1] has been taken as copy text for the present edition, emended as shown in the footnotes. No way to emend the sentence "He … Consciences" (p. 328:27–30) or the clause "the young … Izabella" (p. 338:9–11) suggested itself. Starting pg 604at p. 316:3 above, Q normally has blank lines between paragraphs, but these have been closed up.

The following additional copies of the editions have been examined: Q: Clark (*PR3419.V71 [cop. 2]; *PR3417–1683, v. 3; *PR341o.C95a, v. 3; *PR341o.C94, v. 3); D: Clark (*PR3412.1717, v. 5 [2 cop.]; PR3412.1717a, v. 5).

The following supplement to the footnotes gives differences between Q and D where the present edition follows Q.

Editor’s Note
1 How much Congreve had to do with this edition beyond writing the dedication, and how much the text represents Dryden's last thoughts, are questionable (see Macdonald, p. 151), but it has seemed wiser to include its variant readings always.
