This book systematically reconstructs the printing of the first collected edition of Shakespeare's plays. Its primary aim is to furnish students with information which they need to have but with which they are not likely to be familiar: when and how and by what individual workmen the various parts of the First Folio were produced; and in what ways textual integrity was sometimes affected during printing. - dustjacket flap.
