The Shakespeare Electronic Archive, currently available on-site at the
Folger Shakespeare Library, MIT, and the Shakespeare Institute, includes
digital photographs of all states of all pages of the First Folio, along
with synchronized modern text and transcriptions, facsimiles of Hamlet
Q1 and Q2, a Hamlet art collection prepared by Alan Young, and
selections from several Hamlet films.   In preparing the Folio portion
of SEA, we had the benefit of Peter Blayney's collaboration and the
report he prepared for the project guided our selection of copies.
Nearly all variant pages can be found among Folger copies, with the
exception of two pages, for which we used New York Public Library and
Huntington copies.  We believe that the SEA version is the fullest
representation of the edition that has been made.

Peter S. Donaldson
Director, SEA

Andrew Murphy is right. The Norton 'facsimile' is one of the great works
of modern American fiction.
