Catalogue Note

"This play was evidently altered as it went through the press, the different states of different sheets being bound up in various combinations" (Rothschild). The title-page of this copy accords with that described in Ashley and Rothschild, having the price at the foot with a double-rule out of alignment above it. Also pages 73 to 80 are missing. This is described as first issue in the Ashley catalogue. However this does not seem to accord with Temple Scott's description of a first issue (quoted in Rothschild).
