Subject:        Lucrece Variants

The June 2005 *Notes and Queries* has just published my note "Unnoticed
Variant Reading in Q1 Lucrece, 1594" (Vol. 250 [N.S. 52.2]: 193-195):

IN preparing Shakespeare's Lucrece, based on the White copy of Q1 (L V C
R E C E. / L O N D O N. / Printed by Richard Field, for Iohn Harrison,
and are / to be sold at the signe of the white Greyhound / in Paules
Churh-yard.   1594.), for my edition of The Poems for the Internet
Shakespeare Editions <http://web.uvic.ca/shakespeare/>, I discovered a
variant reading in line 1118 (inner forme of sheet H, signature H3v)
which appears to be unrecorded.  In addition, I found that the British
Library's Grenville 11178 copy contains eight readings of earlier states
that have not yet been identified with it by previous editors (six on
the outer forme of sheet B; one from the outer forme of sheet I; and one
from the outer forme of sheet K).
