Excerpt from Philology and Literature, Vol. 13: William Rowley His All's Lost by Lust, and a Shoe Maker, a Gentleman; With an Introduction on Rowley's Place in the Drama
I take this opportunity to thank for their courtesy the librarians with whom I have come in contact in the course of this work, especially those of the South Kensington Museum and Trinity College, Cambridge. I Wish also to thank Mr. Fitzmaurice Kelly for suggestions as to the source of All's Lost. Professor Rennert and Professor Jastrow, of the University of Pennsylvania, have assisted in special investigations. To Dr. J. P. W. Crawford, of Pennsyl vania, I owe the results of a very careful investigation into the Spanish and French versions of the story of All's Lost. But my greatest debt of gratitude is due to Professor Schell ing, under whose guidance and supervision this work was begun, continued and completed.
