ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA/

Vol. virr. B B

[graphic]

♦antony And Cleopatra.] Among the entries in the books of the Stationers'Company, October 19, 1593, I find "A Booke entituled the Tragedie of Cleopatra." It is entered by Symon Waterson, for whom some of Daniel's works were printed; and therefore it is probably by that author, of whose Cleopatra there are several editions; and, among others, one in 1594.

In the same volumes, May 20, 1608, Edward Blount entered "A Booke called Anthony and Cleopatra." This is the first notice I have met with concerning any edition of this play more ancient than the folio, 1623. SteEvens.

Antony and Cleopatra was written, I imagine, in the year 1608.
