Chadwyck-Healey Editorial Statement: Editions and Adaptations of Shakespeare
contains eleven major editions from the First Folio of 1623 to the Cambridge edition of 186366, twenty-eight separate contemporary printings of individual plays and poems, selected apocrypha and related works. In addition it contains more than one hundred adaptations, sequels and burlesques from the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, including the whole of Bell's Acting Edition of Shakespeare's Plays (1774).
No attempt has been made to standardise the different conventions adopted by the various editors of Shakespeare's texts. The user should refer to the editors' own introductions for explanations (more or less full) of their particular practices. Act and scene numbering follows the source texts throughout; the user will inevitably encounter irregularities, particularly in early editions, where attributions to Shakespeare may be found to be at variance with modern consensus.
The PhiloLogic implementation of Editions & Adaptations of Shakespeare< is based on automatic conversion of the SGML-encoded documents provided by Chadwyck-Healey. The database has XX million words, XX unique forms, in 252 works, listed in the online Bibliography.
