It is almost always said that Shakespeare used the second, 1587, edition of Holinshed in writing his History plays.

 

Can we be sure of this? Is it possible to point to references in these plays which were based on material in the second edition which did not appear in the earlier edition? 

 

Thanks, Bill Rubinstein
