Excerpt from Notes and Emendations to the Text of Shakespeare's Plays: From Early Manuscript Corrections in a Copy of the Folio, 1632

IN preparing the following sheets it has been a main Object with me to give an impartial notion of the singular and interesting volume from which the materials have been derived. It is a Copy of the folio of Mr. William Shakespeare's Comedies, Histories, and Tragedies, which was published in 1632: we need hardly say, that that edition was a reprint of a previous impression in the same form in 1623; and that it was again reprinted (with additional plays) in 1664, and for the fourth time in 1685. The reprint of 1632 has, therefore, been usually known as the second folio of the collected plays of Shakespeare.
