London, Printed by Adam Islip, for Edward Blunt. 1598. 4to. The title page of the second edition, which contains the complete poem, is Hero and Leander: Begun by Christopher Marloe; and finished by George Chapman. Ut Nectar, Ingenium. At London, Printed by Felix Kingston, for Paule Linley, and are to be solde in Paules Churche yard, at the signe of the Blacke beare. 1598. 4to.
