Printed by Bradbury, Evans, & Co.

Whitefriars.

HE present Edition is intended,

in respect to its appearance and size—a clear beautiful type, and a page free from Notes—to form a handy readable series of Volumes, equally adapted for the Pocket, the. Knapsack, and the Railway.

The Text has been arranged from a close comparison of the most trustworthy editions, such as those of Mr. Collier, Mr. Dyce, Mr. Charles Knight, Mr. Staunton, and the Cambridge Editors—not omitting the Folio of 1623,—with the primary object of obtaining a reading as nearly as possible in accordance with what Shakspeare actually wrote.
