Fellow Publications

Joshua McEvilla has published a new journal article in The Library Volume 18, Issue 3, published by Oxford Academic (1 September 2017, Pages 337-344). The following is a description of the publication:

Abstract: This bibliographical note demonstrates that The Wits Interpreter, The English Parnassus, one of the earliest English drolleries, was not compiled by John Cotgrave, the well-known compiler of The English Treasury of Wit and Language, but by John Cragge, a little-regarded clergyman, known primarily for a series of pre-Civil War pamphlets and post-Civil War non-conformist religious tracts. This note helps to recognize the diversity of persons with a vested interest in the preservation of drama during the long period of the 1642–1660 playhouse closures.
