Good phrases are surely, and ever were, very commendable.
2 Henry IV. iii 2.
UNIVERSITY PRESS :
This book is intended to be an index of the phraseology of Shakespeare ; a concordance of phrases rather than of words. Its plan is to take every sentence from his dramatic works which contains an important thought, with so much of the context as preserves the sense, and to put each sentence under its principal words, arranged in alphabetical order. Some of the sentences it did not seem necessary to repeat as often as this plan might allow.
The text of Messrs. Clark and Wright has been followed, with the exception of the change of the final 'd to ed.
At the end of the book comparative readings are given from the texts of Dyce, Knight, Singer, Staunton, and Richard Grant White.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., May, 1881.
