11 editions published between 1906 and 2008 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As You Like It, Shakespeare's most lighthearted comedy and one of the best-loved and most performed of all his plays, was probably written in 1599 or 1600, though it was not printed until the First Folio of 1623. As its witty heroine is Shakespeare's longest female role, the play's performance history is marked by notable Rosalinds, from Hannah Pritchard and Margaret Woffington (giving rival performances in 1741), to Helen Faucit, Ada Rehan, Peggy Ashcroft, Katharine Hepburn, Vanessa Redgrave, Ronald Pickup (in an all-male production of 1967), Juliet Stevenson, and many others." "In his introduction to this new edition Alan Brissenden suggests reasons for its delayed publication and discusses in detail how productions have changed radically over the years. Shakespeare's use of his sources, his handling of the themes of love, doubleness, and pastoral are also dealt with, as well as the significance of boys playing women's parts on the Elizabethan stage. Detailed annotations explain allusions, puns, and difficult passages, enabling student, reader, actor, and director to savour the humour and the seriousness of the play to the full. There are illustrations, and appendices on 'wit' and the songs, for which the earliest known music is printed."--Jacket

The Lady of the lake by Walter Scott( Book )

4 editions published in 1921 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was the poetic tour de force that turned Walter Scott into an international literary legend. The Lady of the Lake was his best selling poem, taking the literary world by storm, it sold over 25,000 copies in the first 8 months. Queen Victoria was a fan having 38 copies of the poem in her library at Balmoral! The poem had huge influence on the area, Ellen's Isle on Loch Katrine is named after fair Ellen in the poem, and around the world. It was even translated for the Mohican Indians in North America. The poem fell out of fashion in the 20th century although even as late as the 1950s tourist guides in the Trossachs were being paid an extra penny a time if they could recite verses of the poem. Now 200 years on Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park in partnership with the Association of Scottish Literary Studies has republished the poem making it available again for the first time in decades

The tragedy of Richard the Third by William Shakespeare( Book )

6 editions published in 1916 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shakespeare's Richard III presents difficult textual problems. There are some 2,000 verbal differences between the text of the first quarto (1597) and the version in the First Folio (1623). Although the narrative of the two plays is virtually identical, each has lines which are not found in the other, parts of the play are arranged differently and the quarto deploys fewer characters." "In the past editors have based an analysis of the quarto text on its conjectural relationship with the Folio. In this edition Peter Davison examines every quarto reading to establish a presumption of originality. He proposes that Shakespeare's company, the Lord Chamberlain's Men, used a memorially reconstructed text of Richard III during a touring performance of the play, and that text provided the manuscript for the 1597 quarto. A lengthy introduction sets out the problem and the proposed solution. The text of the quarto is accompanied by a collation of variant readings and substantial textual notes." "An important element of this edition is the history of what happened to the text on tour. Using examples of touring practice of the past 400 years, the introduction shows how the actors' involvement helped to produce the text we have."--Jacket
