DAVID AND BETHSABE.

WOL. II. B

“The Love of King David and Fair Bethsabe. With the Tragedie of Absolon. As it hath bendiuers times plaied on the stage. Written by George Peele. London. Printed by Adam Islip. 1599.” 4to.

This play was reprinted by Hawkins in the second volume of his Origin of the English Drama, 1773; and, excepting one or two errors of the press, (such as “pillar” instead of “pillow,” “use” instead of “ice,” &c.) the text was accurately given. Octavius Gilchrist (Letter to Gifford on Ford's Works, p. 11.) talks rather too contemptuously of Hawkins.
