For princes may be justly esteemed married to their states, as Jupiter to Juno; but it sometimes happens, that, being depraved by long wielding of the sceptre, and growing tyrannical, they would engross all to themselves, and, slighting the counsel of their senators and nobles, conceive by themselves; that is, govern according to their own arbitrary will and pleasure. On page 63, however, I find the following. In Title LXIX. It is certain that Southern Arabia was the seat of a very primitive civilisation, which influenced all the regions around. Haines can assert that the book referred to, in the Bodleian Library, bears Shakespeare’s “undoubted signature,” or that the “Florio” signature is with reason regarded as genuine, I am quite unable to understand.

Cox supposes that the name _Atri_ may be the same as the _Atli_ of the Volsung Tale. [35] It may perhaps be worth while to quote some of the words put into the mouth of “Fame” when “the whole Scene opens,” and Saturn sitting with Venus is discovered above, and certain “Votaries” come forth below, “which are the chorus,” shortly before “the Masquers are discovered.” “Within yond’ darkness, Venus hath found out That Hecate, as she is queen of shades, Keeps certain glories of the time obscured, There for herself alone to gaze upon As she did once the fair Endymion.
