Yes, the Harvard (Spevack) and the Bartlet are available as such. Mary
Cowden Clark's is also. I believe that there is an online concordance
based on the Harvard. The prefatory material in all the concordances
makes good reading. The tradition; Clark->Bartlet->Spevack->(the future
cum Foster-Egan-Roth (et al.) via (perhaps) Wolfram (inter alia) is an
interesting field.

All the best,
R.A. Cantrell

It may not be a concordance, but Matty Farrow's site has the ability to
make quite complex searches. Of course it uses the standard Internet
public domain texts with all their imperfections.

... based on Craig's 1914 Oxford edition.

I think most of the on-line concordances tend to use out-of-copyright
texts, which can be a pain sometimes.

Both of the concordances that I most frequently use are organised as 'a
single authorial whole'.  They are John Bartlett, comp., 'A New and
Complete Concordance ... in the Dramatic Works of Shakespeare' (London:
Macmillan, 1913) and Martin Spevack, comp., 'The Harvard Concordance to
Shakespeare' (Hildesheim: Georgolms Verlag, 1973).  The most interesting
of all Shakespearean 'verbal indexes' is also organised in this manner:
Mary Cowden Clarke, comp., 'The Complete Concordance to Shakespeare'
(London: Charles Knight, 1842).  Clarke's preface to this
neatly-produced octavo is a gem; she explains that she has spent
fourteen years compiling and organising the information.  The copy here
at Queen's (disgracefully yet splendidly placed on open shelving) is
actually signed by Clarke.  Is it significant that in print, one the
frontispiece, she is referred to as 'Mrs. Cowden Clarke', but in
manuscript hand, the critic calls herself 'Mary Cowden Clarke'?

To R. Schmeeckle:

Marvin Spevack's *Harvard Concordance* does what you're looking for.
