Subject:        Best Multivolume Editions?

Two friends are seeking multivolume editions of Shakespeare, and I said
I'd query the list for opinions on which series is best.

Two people, neither an aficionado, with different priorities:

1. Wants small--rack-size paper--for traveling, but with notes good
enough to get the jokes. Signet? Bantam?

2. Wants nice hardcover editions that will presumably make the shelf
look nice, with good notes (not necessarily Wilson or Jenkins level,
but....). This guy's a VP at a big corp, so price probably isn't a big
issue. Arden?

3. I'll toss in a third type--folks who want quality paperback editions.
Arden again?

Thanks,
Steve
