Third Edition. Hayward was imprisoned by Queen Elizabeth, 1599-1601, for publishing the present work, which he had dedicated to Essex. According to Pforzheimer, Elizabeth was apparently only dissuaded from hanging Hayward by Bacon’s comment, after reading the book, that the author was not guilty of treason but only of felony since he had stolen the better part from Tacitus. Following the accession of James I, Hayward secured a large practice in the court of arches, and in 1610 was named historiographer of the newly founded Chelsea College. STC 12997. Grolier, Wither to Prior, 431n. Pforzheimer 458..
