Subject: Re: Globe Shakespeare
William Sutton describes an edition of the Works of 1986, called The
Globe Illustrated Shakespeare. From the further information he provides
it appears that this is a reprint of Howard Staunton's edition, issued
in parts from December 1856, and in three volumes 1858-60.
(Incidentally, I believe that the Folger has acquired the originals of
Sir John Gilbert's illustrations for this edition.)
I do not think it has anything to do with the Cambridge Globe, edited by
Clark and Wright.
(And further by the way, on the edition the Drew Whitehead originally
enquired about, Dick checked some readings and noted that the Collins
Clear-type edition seems to be in the family of either Staunton or
Knight 1867. A note I sent to the list on this topic has not yet shown
up, but I presume it's in process.)
