LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST.*

VOL. VII.

B

* Love's Labour's Lost.) I have not hitherto discovered any novel on which this comedy appears to have been founded ; and yet the story of it has moft of the features of an ancient romance. STEEVENS.

I suspect that there is an error in the title of this play, which I believe, should be—“ Love's Labours Loft." M. MASON.

Love's Labour's Loft, I conjecture to have been written in 1594. See An Attempt to ascertain the Order of Shakspeare's Plays, Tol. II. MALONE.
