Andronicus Commenius, A Tragedy (John Wilson, 1627-1696) London, for J Starkey, 1664. 4º
A blank verse tragedy based on the story of Andronicus Comnenus as told by Peter Heylin in his Cosmography. It contains a scene between the usurper and the widow of his victim Alexius which follows very closely Shakespeare's treatment of a parallel situation in Richard III. http://www.1911encyclopedia.org/John_Wilson_(Pl...

In verse; an anonymous verse play of similar title 'Andronicus: a tragedy, impieties long successe, or heavens late revenge' appeared in 1661, this is occasionally attributed to Wilson but usually credited to Thomas Fuller -- though often confused with an entirely different prose text by Fuller 'Andronicus, or The unfortunate politician' of 1646.
PL 1604.1 bound with 'Pompey the Great· A tragedy.' http://www.pepysdiary.com/encyclopedia/10088/#d...
