William Camden, one of England’s most respected antiquaries, published the second edition of Remaines of a greater work in 1614. Like the first edition of 1605 it includes a list of living and recently deceased poets, ending with William Shakespeare (shown above on page 324).

The 1614 edition is the first to include Richard Carew’s essay “The excellencie of the English tongue,” which also celebrates English poets, including Christopher Marlowe and William “Shakespheare,” who are described as equals to the Roman poet Catullus. All subsequent 17th century imprints (1623, 1629, 1636, 1637, 1657, 1674) include Carew’s essay. Carew’s essay also survives in manuscript. Whether by ignorance or by a mistake of copying, Marlowe is given in both the manuscript, in the 1614 imprint (page 44 above) and all later 17th-century impressions as “Barlowe,” while Hero and Leander is called, simply, “Barlows fragment.” “Shakespheare” falls well within the range of contemporary spelling variants, and appears in all impressions except for 1629, where it is spelled "Shakespeare," and in 1674, where it is spelled "Shakesphear."
