The Cambridge History of English and American Literature in Eighteen Volumes (1907–21).
Volume IV. Prose and Poetry: Sir Thomas North to Michael Drayton.


VOLUMES V and VI of The Cambridge History of English Literature will deal with the history of dramatic writing in England to the closing of the theatres under the puritan rule, that is to say, to about the middle of the seventeenth century.   1
  Volume VII, Cavalier and Puritan, will be concerned with non-dramatic literature, mainly of the period between 1625 and 1660. Its contents are in an advanced stage of preparation, and we hope to be able to publish this volume before the end of 1910.   2
  It was originally intended to continue, in the present volume, the account of scholars and scholarship in England from the point reached in Volume III; it has been decided, however, to postpone this continuation until Volume VII.
