For help in drawing up the index I am much indebted to Miss Rachel Alcock.     xii

Rachel Alcock (1862-1939) was a marine physiologist whose interest shifted from the laboratory to Spanish literature. “She spent two years at the Biblioteca Nacional in Madrid, and in Toledo from 1914–16...”
ex wikipedia

Not many years before she was preparing Fitmaurice-Kelly’s Cervantes index, there were these two papers —

  1. “The Peripheral Distribution of the Cranial Nerves of the Ammocoetes,” The Journal of Anatomy and Physiology, Normal and Pathological, Human and Comparative 33:1 (October 1898) : 131-153 : link
  2. “On Proteid Digestion in Ammocoetes” appeared in The Journal of Anatomy and Physiology, Normal and Pathological 33:4 (July 1899) : 612-637 : link

Later, Alcock would write “La Famosa Toledana by Juan De Quiros” in Revue hispanique 41 (1917) : 336-562
introduction pp 336-389, including plot of its three “jornados” at pp 377-380.
Documentos at 389-454
and the play (written in 1591) itself, transcribed from a manuscript, at 455-562

note 7 :
Another derivation from Alcock’s work is in slow progress, from the ammocoetes paper. Ammocoetes are “larva of primitive jawless vertebrates, such as the lamprey, that lives buried in mud and feeds on microorganisms.”
note 8 :
an experiment with an uncooperative text.
