Spevack's Concordance, which I agree is what R. A. Cantrell is looking
for, is based on the text of the first edition of the Riverside
Shakespeare.  It "concords" both the whole canon and by individual
works.

Comment:        Re: SHK 14.0406 Query Shakespeare Concordance

The full version of the Concordance edited by Marvin Spevack (6 vols.,
Hildesheim: Georg Olms, 1969) is in two parts--three volumes that
provide concordances for each individual play and three that cover the
entire canon, including the poems.  *The Harvard Concordance to
Shakespeare" (Cambridge: Harvard U.P. 1973) presents a slightly abridged
version of the whole-canon Spevack in one large volume.  These are the
ones I know and use.  I'd be surprised if the library of a major
research university didn't have one or both of these lurking on the
shelves somewhere.
