Product description

"Being the Falstaff Edition issued by Bliss, Sands & Company, Publishers of London, in the year MDCCCXCVIII. " This is the second edition of 1898 and is a rare item in this second edition.

"In this the "Falstaff" Edition...., the order in which the plays are presented is that of the first folio Edition of 1623, "Pericles" was not included inthat Edition, and the Poems, being added at the end of the volume. No new reading of the text is attempted; and only those variations from the text of the early Editions are included which have been accepted by the best Shakespearian critics. The task of the present editor has consisted solely in the choice between the readings of the critics where they disagree. For the most part the text of Delius has been followed."
