These are American Copyright Editions, the Notes being expressly prepared for the work. The English edition contains simply the text, without a single note or indication of the changes made in the text. In the present, the variations from old copies are noted by reference of all changes to former editions (abbreviated f. e.), and every indication and explanation is given essential to a clear understanding of the author. The prefatory matter, Life, &c., will be fuller than in any American edition now published.
"THIS is the only correct edition of the works of the 'Bard of Avon' ever issued, and no lover or student of Shakespeare should be without it."�Philadelphia Argus.
" Altogether the most correct and therefore the most valuable edition extant."�Albany Express.
"This edition of Shakespeare will ultimately supersede all others. It must certainly be deemed an essential acquisition by every lover of the great dramatist."�N. Y. Corte mercial Advertiser.
"This great work commends itself in the highest terms to every Shakespearian scholar and stud ent."�Philadelphia City Item.
" This edition embraces all that is necessary to make a copy of Shakespeare desirable and correct."�Niagara Democrat.
" It must sooner or later drive all others from the market."�N. Y. Evening Post.
" Beyond all question, the very best edition of the great bard hitherto published."--Ncw England Religious Herald.
" It must hereafter be the standard edition of Shakespeare's plays."�National Argue. "It is clear from internal evidence that they are genuine restorations of the origi nal plays."�Detroit Daily Times.
"This must we think supersede all other editions of Shakespeare hitherto published. Collier's corrections make it really a different work from its predecessors. Compared with it we consider them hardly worth possessing."�Daily Georgian, Savannah.
" One who will probably hereafter be considered as the only true authority. No one we think, will wish to ^"irchase an edition of Shakespeare, except it shall be conform-able to the amended text oy Collier."�Newark Daily Advertiser.
