Thomas Larque narrows the field too far. There were annotated editions
of Aristotle, Plato, Vergil, Horace, and the other most important
ancient writers. Spenser had challenged comparison with them by issuing
*The Shepheardes Calender* with a full scholarly apparatus, and Jonson
himself, of course, did the same with his own Folio works of 1616.
