· The following is an exact copy of the title-page of the folio of 1623. It is faced, on a fly-leaf, by the verses of Ben Jonson (see p. 225) on the head of Shakespeare, engraved by Droeshont, which occupies the centre :“ Mr. William Shakespeares Comedies, Histories, & Tragedies.

Published according to the True Originall Copies. London Printed by Isaac Taggard, and Ed. Blount.

1623." At the bottom of the last leaf of the volume is the following colophon : “ Printed at the Charges of W. Jaggard, Ed. Blount, I. Smithweeke, and W. Aspley, 1623."

The title-page of the folio of 1632 has “The second Impression " after “ true Originall Copies," and the imprint at the bottom is as follows:-“ London, Printed by Tbo. Cotes, for Robert Allot, and are to be sold at the signe of the Blacke Beare in Pauls Church-yard. 1632.” The colophon on the last loaf is “ Printed at London by Thomas Cotes, for Jobn Smethwick, William Aspley, Richard Hawkins, Richard Meigben, and Robert Allot, 1632."

In the third and fourth folios the head of Shakespeare is made a frontispiece, facing the title-page, with Ben Jonson's verses printed under it. After “The third Impression," in the folio of 1664, these words are added, “ And unto this Impression is added seven Playes, never before Printed in Polio, viz. Pericles Prince of Tyre. The London Prodigall. The History of Thomas Ld Cromwell. Sir John Oldcastle Lord Cobbam. The Puritan Widow. A Yorkshire Tragedy. The Tragedy of Locrine.”

• We have given this Dedication, and the “ Address to the variety of Readers," which follows it, precisely as they stand in the original, to the observation of the most minute point. The Dedication was omitted in the folio of 1664, bat inserted again in the folio of 1685.
