Shakespere's Merchant of Venice; the First (tho Worse) Quarto, 1600, a Facsimile in Photo-lithography by William Griggs With Forewords by Frederick J.

William Shakespeare

This facsimile edition of the 'bad quarto' of Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice offers an intriguing glimpse into the early history of the play. The text is thought to be based on a shorthand transcription taken during a performance, and is notable for its many deviations from the standard version. The forewords by renowned Shakespeare scholar Frederick J. Furnivall provide valuable context and commentary. A must-read for fans of the Bard.
