John Chalkhill was also perhaps the author of Alcilia: Philoparthen's Loving Folly, which his initials, J. C. on the title-page. It was first printed in 1613, together with Marston's Pigmalion's Image: The Loves of Amos and Laura, by S. P., follow; with some Epigrams by Sir John Harrington, and others. Possibly the whole volume was edited by Izaac Walton, then a very young man; but it was reprinted (as the Rev. Mr. Corser has shown) in 1619, and 1628.
