Excerpt from The Miseries of Enforced Marriage

This facsimile is from the e.m. Copy of the earliest known edition of 1607. Other impressions were issued in 1611, 1629 and 1637; it may thus be inferred that the play was popular. An adaptation by Mrs. Aphra Behn was published in 1677 under the title of The Town Fop.

The article by Sir Sidney Lee in The Dictionary of National Biography, narrates all that is known of the author, touching upon and discussing the question of Wilkins' connection as collaborateur with Shakespeare, Dekker, Day, Rowley and others, having especial regard to Wilkins' probable share in the early drafts of Timon of Athens and Pericles.

The British Museum copy of this facsimile is in a very bad state, having been apparently much handled. The condition of the first and last portions of the book may be thus accounted for: many of the central pages are much cleaner and less blurred. The reproduction is, having regard to this fact, quite satisfactory.
