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').

King John was first printed in the Folio of 1623, in a text that is the basis of all modern editions.
