Arthur Lindley writes, "I can't say that I've ever found Iago's 'damn'd in 
a fair wife' puzzling or in need of emendation, though intelligent people 
like John Briggs and Barbara Everett apparently do."  Is it possible that 
what puzzles these people is the fact that Cassio is a bachelor?

But why is Cassio (rather than Othello) almost damn'd in one, when we 
never see any sign that he is the marrying kind?  And how does this fit 
with Iago's general point here, which is that Cassio isn't much of a 
soldier?

For a reconstruction of the Ur-Hamlet, try this: Albert Cohn, Shakespeare 
in Germany in the 16th and 17th Centuries, 1864

It was published for Shakespeare's 300th birthday, and then reprinted in 
1967 in Germany (Sndig, Wiesbaden) It's maybe not precisely what you have 
in mind, but it should not be far.  There is an introduction, and then 
several plays as they were performed in Germany originally, in German with 
an English translation, among them Hamlet. In any case an interesting 
book.
