"Shakespeare's status as a legendary playwright is partly the outcome of four centuries of textual revision and reconstruction. Much of the work that went into perfecting Shakespeare's published texts was done in the first six decades of the 18th century. During that period, no fewer than six major editions of Shakespeare's dramatic corpus appeared on the London book market, published by Jacob Tonson and his eponymous great-nephew." (11/16/11)
