    Texts of this edition

    Henry IV, Part 2 was first printed in 1600 in quarto format. This is the only known edition of Part 2 before the version printed in the First Folio (F1) in 1623. The 1600 quarto appeared in two issues--QA and QB--with QB containing an extra scene (3.1). This scene is included in the old-spelling transcription of the quarto provided here. The modern text is based on QA and QB but also includes eight passages that appear only in F1.
