For this study of Sir Philip Sidney, first published in 1915, Professor Malcolm William Wallace sought to examine all the previous manuscripts and published sources of information pertaining to Sidney's life. To this he added some significant details of Sidney's childhood, drawn from Thomas Marshall's book of accounts - a manuscript which Professor Wallace discovered at Penshurst and which he edited in an appendix to this volume. There is also a fuller disclosure of the intimacy of Sidney's relationship to the Prince of Orange along with various other points of some interest. The sum of these details helps to make this volume an important contribution to the study of one of the most enduring Elizabethan poets.
