In sending forth this edition I should like to acknowledge my indebtedness to former editors and commentators.
In preparing the Notes, I have received considerable help from Mr. K. Deighton's edition of the First Part of Henry IV, and from Messrs. Halliwell and Wright's revised edition of Nares' Glossary.
In my treatment of Shakespeare's verse (see Appendix) I have closely followed the plan of Professor Herford's “Outline of Shakespeare's Prosody", appended to his edition of Richard II in the Arden Shakespeare, and have also made use of Professor Schipper's Englische Metrik and Dr. Abbott's Shakespearian Grammar.
Among works consulted in the preparation of the Introduction, Kreyssig's Vorlesungen über Shakespeare and Brandes' William Shakespeare call for special notice. I also owe suggestions to an article by Professor A. C. Bradley, entitled “The Rejection of Falstaff”, which appeared in the Fortnightly Review for May, 1902, and to which my attention was drawn by Mr. E. de Sélincourt of University College, Oxford.
