ACCORDING TO THE FIRST PRINTED COPIES, WITH THE
VARIOUS READINGS, AND CRITICAL NOTES,
TO THE READER.
It is strange, that, among so many editions of Shakespeare's works, there is not one that gives their original form. Every editor thinks himself entitled to alter the text according to his time and fancy. A genuine Shakespeare, therefore, is a want which, by the present edition, I shall endeavour to supply.
Krefeld, October 4th, 1869.
F. H. STRATMANN.
