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

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."
