Extract from The Birth of Merlin Act 1 Scene 1. Shakespeare apocrypha. ODBN entry (William Rowley): 'The title-page of the 1662 quarto credits Rowley and William Shakespeare, but while Rowley's part in this mix of legendary history and romance is generally acknowledged [...] Shakespeare's involvement is ruled out by an entry in the records of Sir Henry Herbert'.
