Subject:        Holinshed's Chronicles

I've been trying to find a decent, clean copy of Holinshed's Chronicles
(now sadly out of print) for some time, and have finally come across a
few listings at prices I can afford:

WG. Boswell-Stone. SHAKESPEARE'S HOLINSHED; THE CHRONICLE AND THE
HISTORICAL PLAYS COMPARED (New York: Noble Offset Printers, 1996)

Richard Hosley.  Shakespeare's Holinshed (Capricorn, 1968)

Harvard Classics. CHRONICLE AND ROMANCE-FROISSART, MALORY, HOLINSHED
(Collier, 1910)

Can anyone please advise me as to their relative merits, failings and
comprehensiveness?

Much obliged,
Tanya Gough
