CAPELL, EDWARD - Glossary to Shakespeare

Title: Glossary to Shakespeare
Description: 1775. [CAPELL, Edward]. "GLOSSARY TO SHAKESPEARE." [Part of Notes and Various Readings to Shakespeare.. London: Printed for E. & C. Dilly, 1775]. The glossary only, without title-page and notes, etc. Quarto: B-L4. 27 cm. 79,(1) pp. Worn contemporary calf boards, rebacked, marbled endpapers, with remnant of an armorial bookplate on ffep. Text is nicely printed, having wide margins, and is clean. Very good. Capell (1713-81), a Shakesperean commentator, produced in 1768 the first edition of Shakespeare's works to supply an accurate text based upon careful collations of the old copies. Notes and Various Readings to Shakespeare, with notes to nine plays and a glossary, first appeared in 1775 but, due to little success, was recalled by Capell. He decided to publish the entire commentary in three quarto volumes by subscription. The first volume appeared in 1779; but because subscriptions were slow, the third and final volume was published posthumously in 1783. .
