1.) What may have been the reason that the star witness Ben Jonson in 1600 wrote a lavish praise to Nicholas Breton, in his booke "Melancholicke Humours" but never wrote an eulogy to William Shakespeare during his lifetime, but only seven years after his death 1623 in the First Folio?
2.) Is it accidental in 1600, that Breton wrote a dedication to his Readers writing: " with:
...Much Ado about nothing...
he hath made a piece of worke [s.Faksimile]
and that a Play ("Piece of worke") under that Name appeared in the same year 1600 under the authorname of William Shakespeare?(s.Faksimile)
