Excerpt from The Second Part of Henry the Fourth: The Players' Text of 1600, With the Heminges and Condell Text of 1623
The fact of the play not having been entered on the Stationers' Register until August 23, i6oo,i is no evidence whatever that it was not written two or thre... e years prior to that date. I' he entry in the Sta tioners' Register is only valuable as proving beyond doubt that the play had been written antecedent to that entry. It throws no light on the question as to whether it was composed a long or a short time pre viously. Henry V was unquestionably written by Shakespeare after 2 Henry IV, and as a sequel to the latter, yet it was entered on the Stationers' Register August 14, nine days before the latter.
In any case, it was composed in or before I599. Ben Jonson, in Every Man Out of his Humor acted by Shakespeare's Company at the Globe Theatre in 1599, refers to Justice Silence.
