Product description


Review of the hardback: '… meticulously researched … it is as welcome as it is stimulating and genuinely helpful.' Dieter Mehl, University of Bonn

Book Description

Massai challenges the common assumption that the first editor of Shakespeare was Nicholas Rowe, who published his edition of Shakespeare's Works in 1709. Including six case studies of a selection of early printed playbooks, this book represents a sustained attempt to provide a prehistory of the official editorial tradition.
