Subject:        Globe Shakespeare

The edition usually known as the Globe is that edited by W.G. Clark and
W.A. Wright, 1864, and extremely frequently reprinted (the reprint I
have at hand, of 1907, is the eighteenth). I don't have _What Happens in
Hamlet_ at hand, but possibly Andrew Cooley is referring to the SD at
5.1 "Enter Priests, &c. in procession; the corpse of OPHELIA, LAERTES
and Mourners following; KING, QUEEN, their trains, &c." (F1 3045-6,
"Enter King, Queene, Laertes, and a Coffin, with Lords attendant.")

"A Doctor of Divinity", which appears in some versions of this SD, Evans
in the textual notes to the Riverside ed.  ascribes to Wilson.  Andrew
Cooley might find the answer to his question in Wilson's edition of
_Hamlet_ for Cambridge  (CAM3), published in 1934 (I think). There are a
number of subscribers to this list who could give complete information
on the history of this SD. Possibly Andrew Cooley has already received
what he needs.

Most modern editions (eg Arden, Cambridge, Oxford) give lists of the
major editions consulted, which would often include the Globe.
