By C. Lamb, published 1808; an anthology, with brief but cogent critical comments, of extracts of scenes and speeches from Elizabethan and Jacobean dramatists. They include extracts from Beaumont and Fletcher, Jonson, Marlowe, Webster, and others. The book did much to draw the attention of Lamb's contemporaries to this then neglected period of drama.
