Pandosto: A Note on the Text

By Alan Galey

The base text for this edtion was scanned from Greene, Robert. "Pandosto: the Triumph of Time." Narrative and Dramatic Sources of Shakespeare. Geoffery Bullough, ed. Vol. 8. New York: Columbia University Press, 1975. pp. 156-199. University of Victoria call number PR2952 B8 v.8.
