The Merry Devil of Edmonton is an Elizabethan era comedy about a magician, Peter Fabel, nicknamed the Merry Devil. The play was first mentioned in a 1604 work called the Black Booke; later, during the


century, the anonymous quartos of The Merry Devil were published.
Publisher Humphrey Moseley obtained the rights to the play and re-registered it on September 9, 1653 as a work by Shakespeare, though it does not have the distinctive marks of Shakespeare's style.
