Excerpt from Hamlet, And, as You Like It: A Specimen of an Edition of Shakespeare
From no other than. One of the above sources can a faithful editor be warranted in drawing: he can follow no other text: and so closely does Mr. Horne Tooke adhere to this, or even a stricter, principle; as to insist, that this folio is the only edition worth regarding; and though he admits it has some palpable misprints, he would have it re printed litemtz'm, not to risk the loss of Shake speare's genuine text, which it assuredly contains. Divers. Or purley, II. 52, 3.
This folio, then, is made the groundwork of the proposed edition and present specimen, in which also will be admitted such additional matter as has occurred in the twenty quartos published by Mr. Steevens. From these surreptitious quartos we copy readily: and feel, that we have warrant.
