Notes

Reprint of the Cambridge Shakespeare which was first published in 1863. Editor William George Clark's "principal and most enduring work was the Cambridge Shakespeare (1863-6), mainly planned by him, with a complete collation of all the early editions, and a selection of emendations by later editors. Clark co-operated in the first volume with John Glover, and afterwards with W. Aldis Wright, successively librarians of Trinity" (ODNB). A handsome set.
