Excerpt

Although debts of gratitude are not paid with mere words, words may serve at least to place such debts on record. I wish, first of all, to thank my Superiors for the opportunity to write this book. The scholarly advice of Professor Oscar James Campbell of Columbia University and Professor Alfred Harbage of Harvard University has been extremely valuable. The late Doctor Richard H. Perkinson, one time of Fordham University, favored me with some helpful suggestions. The stimulating interest in the progress of the work shown by my friends and colleagues at Le Moyne College gave impetus to that progress, and the members of my family stood staunchly in the background as a reliable source of encouragement. Mr. John F. Judge, Miss Rose Marie Stanton, and Mr. Thomas J. Macpeak did valiant service in the tedious labors of proofreading. For courteous and absolutely essential cooperation I am grateful to the research librarians and loan-desk attendants at the libraries of Columbia, Fordham, and Syracuse universities and at the New York Public Library. Special thanks must go to Reverend Theodore J. Cunnion, S.J., director of the Le Moyne College Library, and his associate librarian, Miss Catherine Kenna.

I am glad to acknowledge my obligation to Cambridge University Press for permission to quote from The Dramatic Works of Thomas Dekker, edited by Fredson Bowers; to Ginn and Company for permission to quote from The Complete Works of Shakespeare . . .
