In Vaughans Second Edition of the "Golden grove"(1608) in his "Epistle Dedicatorie" to his Brother Sir John he strangely changed one single sentence:
let them make tennis balles of my bookes (1rst editon-1599)
let them fling their cappes at my bookes (2nd edition 1608)
this must have a significant meaning! - It strongly reminds to Nicholas Breton's satyric poems of "Pasquils ->Fooles-Cap(1600)" and "Pasquils Mad-Cap"(1600)
Nicholas Breton is regarded as anaother out of the multiplicity of pseudonyms of the Poet-genius Christopher Marlowe/alias Shakespeare (-> Summary of the Book)
