Author: William Shakespeare

Coordinating Editor: Michael Best

Research Assistants: Simon Carpenter, Chris Dobson, Beth Norris

Editorial principles and publishing history: The transcripts presented here follow the Folio as exactly as an electronic version permits; spelling follows the original, with no attempt to correct errors; word spacing is normalized; and modern forms are substituted for letters and ligatures that have no modern equivalent in current browsers (for example, the long 's').

Based on the facsimile by Praetorius, Charles, ed. 'The First Part of the Contention. The First Quarto 1594, From the Unique Copy in the Bodleian Library, Oxford' (Shakspeare Quarto Facsimiles. London: C. Praetorius, 1889).
