Comment:      Re: SHK 2.0068  Authorial Revision
 
In talking about the Q1 of Romeo and Juliet, I got to thinking that it
would be interesting to my students (Freshmen in High School) to look
at a copy of the "original" Romeo and Juliet.  Does anyone have any
ideas as to where I could get a copy of such.  Thanks a lot for any
help.

I'm not certain what Beth Christopher means by the "original" Romeo and
Juliet.  A standard source for facsimiles of the Shakespearean quartos
is Michael J.B. Allen & Kenneth Muir, eds.  *Shakespeare's Plays in Quarto:
A Facsimile Edition of Copies Primarily from the Henry E. Huntington Library*,
University of California Press, 1981.  The volume is not so scrupulously
edited as Hinman's Folio facsimile, but is a convenient one-volume collection
of most of the important quartos (including both Q1 and Q2 Romeo & Juliet).
 
If the question is about actual *originals*, all I can offer is that the
Huntington evidently has those two.  In North America, the Folger would
be the other best bet.
