Comments

An attractive 18th century edition of Shakespeare’s poems, printed in a style similar to E. Cappell's 1767-68 edition of the Works and sometimes thought to be intended as a supplement to that edition. This edition preserves the order (and the doubtful poems) of the 1640 edition and adds an index.
