Qo1. 1597

The General Introduction to this Play will be given with the Facsimile of the copy of this Quarto in the possession of His Grace the Duke of Devonshire; a copy which differs in very important particulars from the other known examples. With the present Facsimile, made by the kind permission of Mr. Henry Huth from the copy in his library, it will suffice to note the system observed in the marginal markings.

On the inner margins are given the line numbers, in fours, of the nineteen consecutive scenes of which the Quarto consists. Where parts of lines in the Q. make together a perfect metrical line in the Cambridge edition, a bracket({]shews this: otherwise each short line of the Quarto is reckoned as a whole line.

On the outer margins are given the Act, Scene and line numbers of the Cambridge and Globe editions,

A dayger [+] means that a line in the Facsimile differs more or less from the corresponding line in Fr.

A caret [<] shews that a line or a stage direction existing in Fi is absent from the corresponding place in the Qo:

A star [*] shews that a line or a stage direction existing in the Q. is absent from the corresponding place in Fi.
