In reply to Jim Swan, the best single volume edition of Sidney's Apology used
to be that of Geoffrey Shepherd, published by NelsonI have a vague recollection
that there was a paper reprint, but the original date of publication was 1965,
so it may no longer be in print. I'm not in a position to check that
immediately.

For Sidney's _Apology_,  I think that the cheapest edition, still frequently
used by critics and so far as I know, is Forrest G. Robinson's (Bobbs-Merrill).
The notes, while useful, are out-of-date, however. A more expensive option
would be the Oxford Authors edition, _Sir Philip Sidney_, ed. Katherine
Duncan-Jones. Although I know the query was for a one volume edition of
specifically the _Apology_, the advantage of the Oxford is that Duncan-Jones
includes Sidney's letter to Edward Denny, which was written at about the same
time as the _Apology_ and directly contradicts it (S does not mention poetry
once and recommends history and moral philosophy). It is certainly in print.
