    Of the quarto edition of 2 Henry IV, two issues appeared, both in In the first printing, a whole scene (corresponding to Act 3 Scene 1 in modern editions) was omitted, which is why a replacement was printed in a second issue, with two leaves of quire E being superseded by a four-leaf quire (Ev), to accommodate the missing material. The Quarto text of Henry V is of unique importance. It is the first and probably the only text of a Shakespeare play which provides the playscript corresponding to the version that was actually performed by Shakespeare's own company. It has the authority of being transcribed by actors in the company as a record of their original staging at the Globe in

: Arden Shakespeare (3rd Edition) New Cambridge Shakespeare; Oxford Shakespeare; Arden Shakespeare (2nd Edition) None of the four are consistent. Oxford editions in particular sometimes fall prey to the evanescent trends of their time, which is a problem given that most date from the 80s and 90s.

Before the publication of the First Folio innineteen of the thirty-seven plays in Shakespeare's canon had appeared in quarto format. With the exception of Othello (), all of the quartos were published prior to the date of Shakespeare's retirement from the theatre in about Considered the greatest writer in the English language, William Shakespeare's works are among the world's most widely read, most intensely studied, and most passionately collected.

Early editions are also some of the most valuable. While quarto editions of some of the plays and poems were published during Shakespeare's lifetime ( - ), the first collected plays did not appear until First edition thus. Ayscough's third volume, entitled An index to the remarkable passages and words made use of by Shakspeare, is the first published concordance of Shakespeare's plays.

The publisher John Stockdale paid guineas for the index which was specifically designed to accompany Stockdale's two-volume edition of Shakespeare's plays. The earliest texts of William Shakespeare's works were published during the 16th and 17th centuries in quarto or folio format.

Folios are large, tall volumes; quartos are smaller, roughly half the size. The publications of the latter are usually abbreviated to Q1, Q2, etc., where the letter stands for "quarto" and the number for the first, second, or third edition published.

Venus and Adonis went through nine editions in Shakespeare's lifetime and Lucrece (often known as The Rape of Lucrece) went through five. Both poems were originally published as quarto editions.

Shakespeare's sonnets were first published together in as a quarto, athough they were probably written much earlier. Further complicating the matter is the fact that many of Shakespeare's plays exist in multiple editions, making it even more difficult to determine when the authoritative versions were completed.

For example, there are several surviving versions of "Hamlet," three of which were printed in the First Quarto, Second Quarto, and First : Lee Jamieson.

The plays containing errors generally were in quarto form, although some good copies were published in this format. Infriends and admirers of Shakespeare compiled a reasonably authentic collection of thirty-six of Shakespeare's plays in a folio edition of more than nine hundred pages. Twenty-one of Shakespeare’s plays were published in quarto before They appeared in more than 70 quarto editions, all of which can be seen on this site.

The British Library holds nearly every edition, and has more than one copy of many of them. Eighteen of Shakespeare’s plays were printed during Shakespeare's lifetime, in a small, inexpensive format called a “quarto.” A quarto is a book in which each printed sheet is folded twice—in half, and then in half again—to produce four double-sided leaves, or eight pages.

The quarto version (abbreviated as Q; numbered if more than one quarto printing has been preserved) is considered authoritative for all but 7 of the 18 plays preserved in quartos.

Some plays in F1 (e.g. Henry V) are thought to have been printed from Shakespeare's hand-written working manuscript of the full play (referred to by scholars as "foul papers," although clearly written); for Henry V, F1 is.

Quarto 0 This version thought to be earlier than Q1 is known only from a single fragment in the Folger Shakespeare Library, comprising four leaves of quire C that was found in a book binding. The running headline uses the word "hystorie" instead of "historie" and line spoken by Poins in"How the rogue roared" is given as "How the fat.

Some are thought to preserve either his working drafts (his foul papers) or his fair copies. Others are thought to record versions remembered by actors who performed the plays, providing information about staging practices in Shakespeare’s day.
