Trevor Howard-Hill has argued persuasively that the first 'editor' of
Shakespeare's text is the scribe Ralph Crane who prepared copy for at
least five of the plays.  He intervened in the texts he transcribed in
any number of ways - in precisely the way that an editor does.  (See
'Shakespeare's Earliest Editor: Ralph Crane', Shakespeare Survey, 44,
1992, 113-30).  H&C, one would imagine, did no more than collect
together such copies as they could obtain to give to the printers.
