Subject:        King Lear

Regarding Jerry Downs lucid post of yesterday on the provenance of _King
Lear_: Do we have any evidence that Nicholas Oakes habitually or often
did a poor job as compositor? Did he mar another work/other works?  In
any case, could the relatively poor condition of Q1  Lr. (1608) be one
reason why someone (Shakespeare?) revised it?
