Valuable for its quotations from Shakespeare and his predecessors in English poetry, many of whom are known only by the quotations and references in this volume It is possible that the John Ward who was the former owner may have been the Vicar of Stratford, who left a manuscript diary of the years 1648-1679, containing a mention of Shakespeare and his two daughters, and who is the sole authority for the statement that the dramatist died from the effects of a merry making with Drayton and Ben Jonson,
