NOTE ON THE FRONTISPIECE
This portrait was formerly the property of Thomas Turton, Bishop of Ely (1845-64). It is inscribed Æ. 39 x. 1603, but its authenticity is not entirely beyond doubt. The portrait is now the property of the Trustees of Shakespeare's Birthplace, Stratford-on-Avon, by whose permission, and with
whose assistance, it is here presented.
