Comment:        RE: SHK 14.2189 Reference in Milward

I looked in my facsimile of the Globe edition and couldn't imagine what
stage direction Wilson was alluding to. But I didn't dig up a copy of
Wilson either. In my experience with that book, there's always a problem
with what he is (so intently, suspiciously energetically) claiming. Our
colleague Terence Hawkes had the best take on him I know, in his "That
Shakespeherian Rag."

The "Globe Edition" was often seen in the 19th cen. as definitive,
including commentary from several previous editions by Coleridge, Samuel
Johnson, Schlegel, Malone, and a number of others.  The ed. I have is a
reproduction of a 3-volume edition by Howard Staunton. A note on him
says his original ed. dates from Nov. 1857-May 1860). The complete title
is "The Globe Illustrated Shakespeare: The Complete Works Annotated.
Edited by Howard Stauton."
