A transcription of the 1567 edition of Golding's METAMORPHOSES is
available in the Chadwych-Healey English Poetic Text Database (CD, and
restricted online access).

I can't vouch for the reliability of the transcription, but CH are
usually good in this area (if less so, sometimes, in their choice of
copy-text).

John Velz says

I certainly hope so.

I lent my copy to Joan Cusack when we were in the New York Shakespeare
Festival production of Cymbeline in 1989.  She was playing Imogen and I
thought she ought to see the version of Ovid her character was reading
in II, ii.  The production over she flew back to Hollywood and all
appeals for the books I had lent her went unanswered.

I finally found a copy of the Nims edition at Strand in New York a few
months ago, but it is small compensation.
