Several years after I left Meisei University, Professor Noriko Sumimoto and her team embarked on an electronic library project, choosing as their first item my book on the marginalia in one of the twelve copies of the Shakespeare First Folio in the Kodama Memorial Library of the University. I would like to express my admiration for their pioneering enterprise.
The team kindly allowed me to take a fresh look at the digital images of the Folio annotations, downloaded from their Shakespeare First Folio Electronic Library of Meisei University Shakespeare Collection Database in progress, which enabled me to examine the printed text of my 1998 transcription. I discovered many errors, all affecting the word-form and a few affecting the meaning of the annotation.
Professors Noriko Sumimoto and Michiro Yabuki painstakingly incorporated in this digital version not only all those corrections but also the additional footnotes I had prepared for the (yet to be published)second edition of my book. In the course of their production of this digital version, they revised and enlarged my original index. Their new index replaces mine, making this digital version more useful. I would like to express my appreciation.
I am happy to think of these improvements to my previous work and look forward to the completion of the online edition. I will be pleased to be informed of any errors.
My first look at one of the First Folios at Meisei University struck me with awe. Not only because it was an original copy of Shakespeare's plays that his colleagues, Heminge and Condell, had taken great pains to compile in memory of their closest friend, but also because nearly every page of it, from cover to cover, was full of marginal notes in an extremely neat secretary hand of the seventeenth century. I had never come across a book, small or large, so blessed as to be embraced by such a diligent and devoted reader. Certainly the author of these annotations was, in the true sense of the word, one of the greatest lovers of Shakespeare. Shamefully I confess that I have not read Shakespeare with as much care and industry as this seventeenth-century reader.
I have long been interested in playwrights and their readers. What economic and social context in the seventeenth century made possible the repeated publication of, for example, the bulky and costly one-volume Folio editions of Shakespeare's plays (with an engraved portrait of the author on the title page) in addition to many smaller and cheaper editions of his single plays? What conditions in the eighteenth century produced the various multi-volume editions of Shakespeare? These publications, no doubt, have close bearing on the rise of his works, through the difficult time of the Civil War and the Commonwealth, to the status of great popular classics after the Restoration. No one in this context would make light of the publication of the Third Folio - the first issue of 1663 and, in particular, the second issue of 1664 with the addition of Pericles and six apocryphal plays.
The publication of these editions could not have been possible without a sufficiently large number of readers. Those who purchased books may not always have been their actual readers but in those days many, probably all, of them must have been their potential readers. Surely the marginal notes in this First Folio not only show reader response at its best in the seventeenth century but also reflect the degree of dissemination of literary readership at the time [Page viii] as well as Shakespeare's growing prestige. They may even pose an interesting question whether Shakespeare in one's study was read aloud or silently. Most of the notes may appear too naive to modern readers, who are trained, conversant and, I am afraid, much sophisticated in literary criticism under the remote influence of English Romanticism. The notes as a whole are, nevertheless, part of a great literary heritage handed down to us by an early serious reader and are as valuable as many better known. The sheer quantity of the notes may render them even of greater weight, especially when they come to be considered in a socio-cultural context. This thought has led me to attempt the present transcription. I really enjoyed the work. I always found it curiously entertaining. Indeed, I felt, from time to time, as if I had been talking with Shakespeare at one time and with this anonymous early reader at another. I hope they both will forgive my errors, should there be any.
I would like to acknowledge my greatest debt to the late President Mitsuo Kodama of Meisei University. But for his far-reaching designs, including the creation of a Shakespeare library at the university, my appointment and subsequent encounter with the growing richness of the library would never have been possible. It is my pleasure to recollect various occasions of discoursing with him about the matter of Shakespeare. The present work is, in fact, a natural outcome of my interest in the library he created three decades ago.
I would like to express my gratitude also to Professor G. B. Evans, Textual Editor of The Riverside Shakespeare, who, with his usual courtesy and kindness, has constantly encouraged me, for the past three decades, regardless of the nature of my work. Without his drive at my back, bringing the present edition to completion would have been a harder task. Reading an early version of Introduction and also of the glossarial Index at the end of this volume, he kindly volunteered to make valuable suggestions, saving me from a number of blunders.
With the translations and expositions of Latin marginalia, which are collected in the glossarial Index, I have greatly benefited from the help of my old friend Shigetake Yaginuma, Professor Emeritus of Tsukuba University, and I thank him for it. Also I should like to thank my colleague Price Caldwell, a visiting professor from the Mississippi State University, for his kindness in reading a near-final version of this book to improve it.
Editing these marginalia was one of the topics discussed in a seminar conducted by Dr. John Jowett at the International Shakespeare Conference that was held in Stratford in August this year. Comments by some of the seminar members were useful, leading me to make reproductions in actual size of several examples of marginalia, which have been added at the end of Introduction. Mr. I. A. Shapiro's kindness to me dates back to 1959 when, as a student at the Shakespeare Institute, I was privileged to be taught by him once a week; he tried, before the seminar, to persuade me in the Institute gardens, in his characteristically gentle but enthusiastic way, to prepare a facsimile edition of this annotated Folio, emphasing the great use of it for scholars for generations to come. I understood his point and wished it were only possible to obtain sufficient funds for such a project.
Learning by chance that I had been working rather inefficiently on the Scottish authorship of the marginal notes, Mrs. Christine Buckley, nee Avern-carr, another long-standing friend of mine at the Shakespeare Institute, offered her help to me and went as far as to make enquiries at various institutions in England and Scotland, with special reference to William Johnstoune, the earliest known owner of the Folio who has left his ownership inscription in the preliminary. I would like to thank her for her kindness.
When I joined the faculty of Meisei University and started working on Shakespeare in 1988, Professor Toshihiko Kujirai and after him Professor Toshio Sasai had been in charge of the library staff. During their term of office, they both extended to me their constant cooperation and encouragement. Since then, Mr. Kiyoshi Chiwa and his staff have never showed, even at my unpredictable visit towards the end of the day, any sign of having to endure an uninvited guest and always reserved a comfortable room for my work with the First Folio in front of me. Mrs. Mikie Honda, in particular, who knows about every rare book in the library, has offered me her indefatigable expert assistance whenever I needed it. Her husband also helped me at the final stage of the present work. I would like to thank them all for their kind cooperation.
I should like to acknowledge kind permission of W. W. Norton & Company, Inc. in New York that has enabled me to use in the present work the "Through Line Numbers" as established by Dr. Charlton Hinman in The Norton Facsimile : The First Folio of Shakespeare, which are copyright © 1968 by W. W. Norton & Company, Inc.
Last but not least, it is my pleasant duty to have it recorded here that the present work has been carried out over several years with generous grants from Meisei University and also from the Ministry of Education in Tokyo. This publication itself has been made possible through a generous Grant-in-Aid for Publication of Scientific Research Results from the Ministry of Education.

The Kodama Memorial Library of Meisei University in Tokyo holds twelve copies of the First Folio of Shakespeare. They have one and the same shelfmark, 932.141 Sh12, and the individual copies can only be identified by another code system, the MR serial numbers. One of the twelve copies, MR 774, is unique in that it is heavily annotated in an early seventeenth-century secretary hand throughout the volume, from the first page of The Tempest to the last page of the volume.
This unique copy is thought to be No. 53 of Sir Sidney Lee's Shakespeares Comedies, Histories, & Tragedies (1623): A Census of Extant Copies (Oxford: At the Clarendon Press, 1902) and measures 333×210 mm. The owners of this copy are known to have been, in historical order, William Johnstoune (c. 1650, according to Lee's description in his Census), William Cuninghame of Enterkine (in the eighteenth century), Robert Mitchell Campbell of Auchmannoch (in the nineteenth century), Levi Zeigler Leiter (who bought this copy from Bernard Quaritch in August 1888), A. S. Rosenbach (in the early 1930s), Arthur A. Houghton, and Meisei University (that bought this copy in August 1980). Cuninghame and Campbell have personalised this Folio by pasting their bookplates, which carry their names and coats of arms, on to the marbled paper that decorates the back of the front cover made of calf which is no doubt contemporary to the annotator's time. The calf cover is not lettered but carries some tool marks of an unknown binder. Pasted on the same paper is Houghton's leather bookmark that carries his initials stamped in gold. Lee in his Census (p. 28) writes that this copy lacks the preliminary leaf containing `The Catalogue', but in fact it does contain the original leaf: it is genuine and is not a leaf supplied from another copy. A strong piece of evidence is an identical crease of paper of about 60 mm long that runs vertically at the lower inner corner of each of the last four leaves (i.e., leaves A3-A6 including the leaf in question) of the first gathering comprising six leaves and [Page xvi] an additional title leaf. The crease is of the sort one comes across occasionally in old books; it could never have intruded on the leaf in question, had the leaf been supplied from another copy and inserted at such a late date as Lee's Census.
The earliest owner of the copy known to us has left his ownership inscription, `William Johnstoune·· his Booke', in the upper margin of the Epistle Dedicatorie (sig. A2, namely the first leaf after the title page). This inscription appears to have undergone washing, but washing was not efficient and much of the original ink still remains. Even the pale brown stain of ink on the paper clearly shows the calligraphic characteristics of the washed part of the inscription. It is written in Italian hand, although the final `e' alone is in a secretary hand. The same man appears to have drawn two short horizontal lines, which have barely escaped from washing, above the opening two words in each of the first two lines of the text of the dedication:
WHilst we studie to be thankful in our particular, for the many fauors we haue receiued from your L.LIn addition to the general similarity in colour of the ink between the inscription and these two lines, they are very similar to those which are drawn, throughout this Folio, along and above the opening few words of almost every speech-line of the plays, perhaps in order for the writer of the lines to make sure that he has just read, or was about to read, the speech-lines so marked.
A careful examination of the preliminary matter has revealed that the same person appears to have likewise drawn a long line just above virtually every line of the texts of the preliminary matter —the dedicatory epistle, the epistle to the Readers, and some dedicatory verses, excepting `The Catalogue' which the annotator seems to have kept intact. All these long lines have also been washed: pale brown stains of the ink still remain. But there do not appear to have been any marginal notes before washing, with a single exception. One can barely recognise the unique washed note in a basically Italian hand occurring in the outer margin at the beginning of Ben Jonson's commendatory verse (sig. A4):
To the Memory of My Vncel ye avthor[Page xvii]
Surely, this note, reproduced here in an enlarged size, is a partial imitation of the title of Jonson's commendatory verse. (See p. xxxvi for a reproduction in actual size.) The second word in the second line is not clear, but it appears to read `Vncel', which probably means
Judging from the formation of some of the letters, especially the `T', `e', `f', `m', `r', and `V' or `v', the writer of this note seems to have scribbled, in the upper margin of a page of The Two Gentlemen of Verona (sig. C2), the title of the play, also in Italian hand. A reproduction below shows the hand of this scribbling:
Despite the intriguing suggestion of the scribbler's possible close relation to Ben Jonson, however, the note on sig. A4 does not seem [Page xviii] to be by William Johnstoune, the signatory on sig. A2. All I can say is that the scribbler may have come, like Jonson and Johnstoune, from the same old family in Dumfriesshire and shared the same contemporary Scottish background.
Who wrote the marginal notes in this Folio is not known for certain. But William Johnstoune, the earliest owner known to us, can be one of the candidates, although supporting evidence is meager.
Surely, the various marks as a whole that have been used, including long and short horizontal lines between the speech-lines of the texts of the plays, do not offer much help. But the writer of the two short unwashed horizontal lines at the beginning of the first two lines of the text of the dedication (sig. A2) may be, as has already been suggested, the same person that wrote the ownership inscription at the top of the same page; that is, William Johnstoune. Numerous similar lines, drawn in similar ink, have been used in the texts of the Folio plays throughout.
A reproduction approximately in real size of Johnstoune's inscription in this Folio will be found later in this Introduction on p. xxxv, but here is one reduced in size approximately to 75 per cent:
There can be little doubt from this inscription that he was confident in writing his name in quill pen and ink. He wrote the powerful tail of downward stroke of the initial J longer than the initial W 's upward introductory stroke, letting the tail and the [Page xix] second half of the W perpetuate their own images in wet ink on the facing page.
Johnstoune is a Dumfriesshire name, and linguistic evidence suggests, beyond any reasonable doubt, that the author of the marginal notes was a Scot. The annotator used a good number of words of strong Scottish flavour not only in spelling but also in meaning and usage. Examples are `agains' (=against), `descriued' (=described), `nor' (=than), and `propone' (=propose). These are only a few of the many Scottish words used in the marginalia and recorded in the glossarial Index at the end of the present book. It may be mentioned in this context that using an apostrophe for an abbreviated conjugational ending was not his usual practice: a unique exception is `beg'd' (=begged) that occurs in King Henry the Fifth (sig. i5, a, 1). Nor did he use any possessive apostrophes. This fact might well mean that the marginal notes were written well before the outbreak of the Civil War, when the use of apostrophes had already become fairly common. Indeed, contrary to such a late date as `c. 1650', a date given in Lee's Census, an overall impression of the calligraphic features of the marginal notes suggests that the date would be the 1620s or around 1630. Soon after that time English secretary hand could no longer manage, by and large, to keep itself from its own unavoidable degradation and corruption in calligraphy that were to start with the advent of the fashion of Italian hand which rapidly grew predominant. But in no respect the marginal notes in the Folio show any signs of such corruption: the hand employed for the annotations is truly typical of a neat secretary hand of the early seventeenth-century England.
However, the formation of individual letters in the inscription on sig. A2 — `William Johnstoune·· his Booke' — cannot be much help to support his identification with the author of the marginal notes, because the inscription is almost entirely in Italian hand, while the handwriting of all the marginal annotations excepting three notes in Latin is patently consistent with English secretary hand of the early seventeenth century. Even the three Latin annotations, which are written in Italian hand in the upper margins of Measure for Measure (sig. F4v and sig. F6v) and The Third Part of King Henry the Sixth (sig. p1v), do not show any affinity with the Italian hand of the inscription, offering no clue to this problem of identification. Nor do the stage directions added in Italian hand in the text of Titus Andronicus (sig. ee2) and of Hamlet (sig. pp1v) seem to be very helpful, because no individual letters are available [Page xx] to consider their resemblance to the inscription. Likewise, an isolated word `honorable' in an exceptionally neat Italian hand that appears in the upper margin of the last page of Titus Andronicus (sig. ee2v) may not be regarded as representing the same hand as the ownership inscription: the `h', `o', `n', and probably the `l' in the word show some affinity with those of the inscription, but an undisputable difference in the terminal `e' between the annotation (in Italian hand) and the inscription (in secretary hand) denies their possible link in hand. This isolated annotation, `honorable', may even be by a third hand: though written in ink similar to many other annotations, it is not only isolated and conspicuous but also it is carefully written as well as elaborately neat and fair.
No further speculation concerning Johnstoune's authorship of the marginalia seems to be worthwhile.
The author of the marginal notes appears to have gradually developed his method of marking the text he was reading, and been more or less able to establish it before he reached half way through The Comedy of Errors.
He used neither superscript letters nor circumflexes over minims as signs of contraction. He seldom used tildes ( ~ as in õ) as signs of contraction: in fact, he used them only twice — in `agamemnõ' in Troilus and Cressida (sig.¶2) and in `comõdities' in King Lear (sig. rrv). As already mentioned, he rarely used apostrophes or points as punctuation marks; instead, he sometimes used a stroke ( / ) not as a punctuation mark but rather as a sort of partition between independent phrases or sentenses that had happened to come too close to each other. Occasionally he also used a stroke as a sign of abbreviation, for example, in `k/' for `king' or `king's' or in `Q/' for `Queen(e)'. His terminal s was always one that resembles the numeral 6 : he never used the inverted form a modern editor would usually translate into es.
In general, he used several different marks: (1) a dot (·) before the opening word of each line, (2) a vertical line stretching from one to several lines along the first letters of the lines, (3) a long or short overline (i.e., the opposite of an underline) over a speech-line, (4) a kind of tick (\) before the opening word of a line, and (5) a quite large stroke ( / ) at the beginning of a speech-line or in the inner or outer margin. In many cases some of these marks were used in [Page xxi] combination.
In addition to these marks, he used an enigmatic sign ( :v ) only once, in King Henry the Eighth (sig. t6v). It occurs to the left of pagination `212', just outside the top end of the vertical rule. What it means is not clear. It may be the annotator's index to his own notes on fallen Buckingham that he wrote in a small space of that page, a space shared by the running-title. Or it may be his specific sign for reference to a page as a whole that provides him with various opinions about Buckingham.
The annotator's most conspicuous and consistent practice seems to have been the use of long or short overlines. Even when he left the margins of a page free from any notes, he has applied these overlines most generously to the speech-lines. Their combined use with ticks (\) is also frequent in the pages before Troilus and Cressida but in and after this play the use of short overlines has come to be dominant.
Only in the first seven pages of The Tempest (sigs. A1-A4) dots (.) have been used at the beginning of each line either by themselves or frequently together with short overlines. Most interesting of all, however, is the occasional use of long strokes ( / ) in the outer margins. They occur in Hamlet (at TLN 524, 739 and 1296) and also in King Richard the Second (at TLN 2327), where the author of the annotations had most likely to stop reading at one sitting. Occasionally large crosses were also used in the outer margins (and small crosses or rather daggers in the blank space at the end of speech-lines), for reasons unknown: they occur only in King John at TLN 1143, 1382, 1400, 1623, (1773, 1809), 1823, 1838, 1874, 1898, 1928, (2028), 2094, 2434, (2490, 2547) and 2604.
Occasional shifts of the pattern of these marks may reflect changes in the annotator's reading habits. They may even indicate the order in which he read the plays. The ticks (\) before speech-lines seem to be helpful in this respect. They begin to be used with the disappearance of short vertical lines in the third act of The Comedy of Errors (sig. H3v) and disappear completely after their last appearance in the last page of King Henry the Eighth (sig. x4v). Their generally consistent use at the beginning of almost every speech-line, however, encounters some disturbances in the last two plays of the `Histories'. The third page of King Richard the Third (sig. q6) shows a sign of sudden decrease in the number of ticks at the beginning of speech-lines, whereas a gradual increase in the number of such marks as ticks or horizontal lines, not at the [Page xxii] beginning but at the end of speech-lines, becomes noticeable, in the left column (and sometimes in the right column as well) of the recto page alone. These marks on the recto page, perhaps owing to a close opening of the facing pages as a result of tight binding, occur only in King Richard the Third (leaves q5-t2) and King Henry the Eighth (leaves t3-x4). A complete disuse of ticks begins with the first play of the `Tragedies' and continues to the end of the last play in the Folio.
The short vertical lines before speech-lines begin to appear in place of dots (.), as has already been mentioned, in the middle of The Tempest, and continue to be used throughout the following three plays, The Two Gentlemen of Verona, The Merry Wives of Windsor, and Measure for Measure. They are used also in the first two acts of The Comedy of Errors. In the second act, however, they are no longer so much vertical as slanting sideways like the first stroke of a long s or an f in contemporary secretary hand. Constant use of these strokes may have been harmful to the quill pen. They appear to have been replaced finally by less harmful ticks (\) from the beginning of the third act onwards, and the new marks were used consistently in the subsequent plays — Much Ado about Nothing, Love's Labour's Lost, A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Merchant of Venice, As You Like It and also in four pages of The Taming of the Shrew (sigs. S2v-S3 and T4v-T5; TLN 1-139 and 2129-2265). After a long break in the last part of the `Comedies' section of the Folio (including All's Well That Ends Well, Twelfth Night and The Winter's Tale), the ticks were used again, appearing as consistently as before in all the plays in the `Histories' section, until they were finally abandoned: none of them appear in the `Tragedies' section.
The heavy use, almost incredible to a modern reader, of these various marks, page after page, throughout the whole thick book, may well tempt the modern reader to wonder about how the author of the marginal notes read the book. Every page is certainly a good example, even firm evidence, of a reading practice in the seventeenth century: in this case, close reading. The annotator of this Folio must have read it alone in his study with a pen in his hand. But what was his purpose in making crowded marginal annotations page after page? And what were his reading habits like? Did he read Shakespeare's lines aloud or silently? If aloud, was he really able to appreciate the beauty or the powerfulness of the lines? If he read them silently, how fast was he able to read them while [Page xxiii] writing so many notes and so many marks?
The author of the marginal notes appears to have had some idea, from the start, of an efficient use of the margins for annotation. It seems that his general idea was to make notes on the text in the left or right column in its corresponding part of the margins, both upper and lower. So his notes on the text in the left column have usually been written in the left half of the upper margin and those on the text in the right column in the right half of the upper margin. When the upper margin was found not spacious enough for comfortable accommodation of his notes, the lower margin has also been used. But, more often than not, the division into halves of the lower margin has been ignored, and the notes centred and stretched much longer from left to right. The annotator, however, very rarely used intentionally the inner and outer margins: he used them only in The Comedy of Errors (sigs. H1v, H2, H2v, H4, and H5v), Much Ado about Nothing (sig. I3v), The Merchant of Venice (sig. O4v), and As You Like It (sig. R1v), particularly in the first and the last of these plays.
The notes themselves have usually been written in the order of the action of each play. They are independent of each other and often fail to represent even the outline of the action. At their best, they remind one of some detail of an episode in the play. A note that occurs in Titus Andronicus (sig. dd4v) will probably best serve as an illustration:
Tamora broght to bed of a blacke moore and sends to aaron to stabbe itThis, of course, describes the substance of the conversation between the Nurse and Aaron which in the Folio text (TLN 1743-54) reads as follows:
Nurse. She is deliuered Lords, she is deliuered. Aron To whom? Nurse. I meane she is broght a bed? Aron. Wel God giue her good rest, What hath he sent her? Nurse. A deuill...[Page xxiv]
The Empresse sends it thee, thy stampe, thy seale, And bids thee christen it with thy daggers point.There are plenty of examples of this kind. In fact, a general impression of the marginal notes is that they are the annotator's most subjective, if not inconsistent, fragmentary memoranda: he appears to have had no interest in making critical analysis and assessment of Shakespeare. It seems that he contented himself, as a diligent reader, merely to make notes on the speech-lines that had impressed him. And yet to say this does not necessarily mean that these marginal notes are too personal to be taken seriously. On the contrary, they offer, from time to time, good examples of contemporary critical assessment. His comment towards the end of Measure for Measure (sig. G6, b, 1), for instance, is one of them:
pleasant conclusions of the aduenturesand another good example is to be found in The Merchant of Venice (sig. Q2v, a, 1 and b, 1-2), also at the end:
feares wittilie wroght and fairlie quenched Conceiued feares and losses happilie remoued Intricassies cleered and Ioyfullie ended
A single line often comprises more than one note and many notes consist of nouns or noun-phrases alone. And yet such devices as stokes ( / ), modern equivalent to commas and periods, are rarely used to indicate the division between the groups of these notes. Instead, they are, from time to time, used as partitions to indicate the division between the crowded annotations in the left-hand part (a) of the margin and those in the right-hand part (b).
The use of adjectives is rather restrained, but there seems to be a tendency for certain adjectives to be used more often than others. As already mentioned, the use of commas and apostrophes is extremely rare, and one can only record a unique occurrence of each: `him,' in King Henry the Eighth (sig. x2v, a, 2) and `beg'd' in King Henry the Fifth (sig. i5, a, 1).
As can be expected from annotations of this kind, there are a number of errors in spelling inadvertently made, such as, for example, `congnised' in The Merchant of Venice (sig. P2v, a, 1) for `cognised' or `abomable' in King John (sig. a6, b, 6) for `abominable'. [Page xxv] Also there are a few notes that seem to have been left incomplete: examples are `o Cæs' in Twelfth Night (sig. Z2, b, 1), which should have been expanded at least to `Cæsario', and `sorrowfull and suddaine parting of' in Troilus and Cressida (sig. ¶¶2v, b, 1), which should have been followed by `Troylus and Cressid'. But the most perplexing of all is the word `brotrothed', which occurs in Measure for Measure (sig. F6v, a, 2). It may be a nonce word or a curious blending of `brother' and `betrothed'. Footnotes have been provided to direct attention to these errors or possible errors.
Also there are numerous cases where a few words in a note have not only been borrowed from the text of the Folio but also the entirety of it is actually a faithful copy of the text. Where only a few words are borrowed from the Folio, however, the meaning of the annotator's condensed phrasing could often be rather ambiguous without reference to the text of the Folio. An example is his note on `Mens honours lye as a lump fit for his frame' that occurs in King Henry the Eighth (sig. v1, d. 2). This may sound like a kind of proverb, but it is in fact a reshaped wording of Norfolk's speech at TLN 1081-83:
all mens honours Lie like one lumpe before him, to be fashion'd Into what pitch he please.
On the other hand, where the entirety of a note is a borrowing from the text of the Folio, the meaning is clear and straightforward. Examples are: `Too easie winning makes the prize light' from The Tempest (sig. A3, TLN 605-6), `Law wrested to do a great right and litle wrong' from The Merchant of Venice (sig. P6, TLN 2126-7), `prologues to a bad voice' from As You Like It (sig. S1, TLN 2543), `a beggers booke owtworths a nobles blood' from King Henry the Eighth (sig. t3v, TLN 190-1), and `a good mans fortune may grow out at heeles' from King Lear (sig. qq6v, TLN 1233). The last of these is written in a small blank space just below the bottom line, which was being copied, at the foot of the right column of the text — a fact that tells us the annotator has contented himself by copying a sort of sententious line.
Some of the Folio plays, at least some of the pages, appear to have been read for the second time by the same person, who was often inclined to write further notes. The different colour of ink and the different degree of wearing of the pen sometimes point to this [Page xxvi] fact, but it is not always easy to specify such pages with any certainty. As You Like It, however, offers an excellent example (which is reproduced on p. xxxvii approximately in actual size). The upper margin of sig. Q5v is considerably crowded with annotations. Four lines in its left part (a) and two lines in its right part (b) have been written in dark ink and with a fine pen, whereas all other lines, seven in number, have been written in brownish ink and with a worn-out pen. The first two of the seven lines in brownish ink read as follows:
dyeing man for=/ saken by all friendsThese lines have been written in a small blank space in the middle of the margin, left unused on the initial occasion of annotation, between a group of three lines in its left-hand part (a) and a group of two lines in its right-hand part (b). The smallness of the space appears to have forced the writer, on the second occasion of annotation, to divide this short note into two lines and a word even hyphenated. This could not have taken place had he written this short note (in brownish ink and with a worn-out pen) at the time when he was writing the seven lines of notes in two groups (in darker ink and with a finer pen). Judging from the ink and the pen used, the writer of this short note appears to have continued to write further notes comprising five more lines: sig. Q5v, a, 4-6 and sig. Q5v, a-b, 3-4.
Although evidence is not so persuasive as in the case of As You Like It, King Henry the Eighth seems to be another play that retains a trace of our annotator's second reading. The difference of pen and ink between the first reading and the second is not only very great but also some of the notes added at the time of a second reading seem to have had to be squeezed in rather dwarfish letters into considerably small spaces that had been left blank after the first occasion of annotation. The ink used for the additional notes was bright brown and the pen had to be very fine. An example is to be found in the text space within rules in the upper margin of sig. t3v, which is reproduced in actual size on p. xxxviii below:
Cardinals pride hereing hell The Cardinals pride ouerswayes both kings[Page xxvii]
Another group of lines similarly squeezed will be found in the upper margin of sig. v1v. They seem to have been added to follow the three lines in dark ink, probably written at the time of the first reading. There are several others, but these additional notes cease to appear half way through the play. The following is a list of examples of what seem to be additional notes in this play: sig. t3v, a,5-7, c,1-2, d,1-3; sig. t4, c,1-5; sig. t4v, c,1-5, d,1-5; sig. t5, a,4-5; sig. t6, a,1-2; sig. t6v, b,4, d,1-2; sig. v1, a,4(second half)-6, b,4-5, c,1-2, d,1-3; sig. v1v, a,4-7, b,3-5, c,4; sig. v2, a,3-4, b,3-4, c,1, d,1.
To draw attention to this possibility of the second occasion of annotation after second reading, footnotes have sometimes been provided. But it may be rather difficult, it is feared, to reconstruct from the transcription the actual distribution and the relative position of the initial notes and the notes added later on second or subsequent reading.
Heavy annotation in the `Tragedies' and in some `Histories' suggests that the annotator responded more actively to these plays than to most of the `Comedies': his general response can probably be explained in quantitative terms by the ratio of the number of words he used for his marginal notes on each play to the total number of words Shakespeare used for it. The table on the next page is the result of such an approach to the annotator's response to Shakespeare. The arrangement is in order of percentage, from high to low, and is accompanied by three lines of asterisks that divide the plays into four distinct groups, representing the annotator's strong, normal, weak, and very weak response. The number of words of each play is based on the data given in the first three volumes, published in 1968, of Marvin Spevack's A Complete and Systematic Concordance to the Works of Shakespeare, 9 volumes (Hildesheim: Georg Olms, 1968-1980). The first column in the following table shows the titles of the Folio plays, the second column the number of words of the annotations, the third column that of the Folio plays, and the last column shows the ratio of the number of words the annotator used for his marginalia to the number of words Shakespeare used for each play. The Two Gentlemen of Verona' s 235 words does not include those scribbles on sig. C2 which are discussed earlier on p. xvii of this Introduction.

The author of the marginal notes appears to have been least interested in the lists of characters that are provided for several plays in the Folio. He has not only introduced no marks into any of the lists but also left them absolutely free from alteration, however imperfect they may be. Neither did he pay any attention to what modern scholars usually regard as cruxes, nor much attention to the textual anomalies including often imperfect stage directions. As a result, his textual interference is surprisingly small. The following is an exhaustive list:
Titus Andronicus (sig. ee2, TLN 2567): Sat. kills Tit, Lucius Sat.] interpolated in Italian hand be- fore the Folio stage direction: `He stabs the Empresse.' Hamlet (sig. pp1v, TLN 2313): exit.] interpolated in Italian hand to the right end of the blank space after the speech-line: `And tell you what I know.'
Here and there in the Folio text one may come across what looks like deletion of a few words. For example, a phrase, `as a monster', at TLN 752 of A Midsummer Night's Dream (sig. N4; see Illus. 9 on p. 47) or another, `will not', at TLN 769 of the same play (sig. N4) looks as if it had been deleted. But what looks very much like a deletion mark is in fact merely a blotting inadvertently made by a faulty pen that betayed the writer while he was drawing an overline along the speech-line. No speech-lines seem to have yielded themselves to the annotator's alteration.
The present transcript aims at a `diplomatic' transcript. There-fore, much effort has been made to represent the actual position of each word as accurately as possible. In many places, however, this plan has been stymied by the unavoidable difference in the sizes of individual letters between the original handwriting and modern printing, which has frequently created uneven and confusing spaces between the words within a line. It is hoped, however, that the general look of the arrangement of lines as a group of words will help to visualise an approximately accurate picture of annotations in the original that are more or less evenly spaced.
This editorial approach to the original has sometimes necessitated the mixed use of the normal fount and a smaller fount, especially when the size of the letters in an annotation differs greatly from the others. An example is a passage from the annotations on King Henry the Eighth (sig. t3v), already cited on pp. xxvi-xxvii. The annotator sometimes wrote more freely and stretched the form of a particular word much longer than the others, giving more generous space between the individual letters of the word. On several occasions, he went far beyond the control of the basic editorial principles explained in the preceding paragraph. This has invited in the present transcript the adoption of wider spacing, like the original, between the individual letters of the word. An example or two will be found in Othello, sigs. tt2-tt3 (p. 268).
The word-forms of such divided words as `a sleep' (Macbeth, sig. mm2v), `be times' (King Richard the Second, sig. c2v), `for bidden' (The First Part of King Henry the Sixth, sig. l1v), `horse man' (Hamlet, sig. pp4v), `it self' (The First Part of King Henry the Sixth, sig. k3v), `no thing' (King Lear, sig. qq4v), etc. have been preserved. Nevertheless, the present transcript, without reproducing the various marks and the long or short lines introduced into the printed text of the Folio, could never be `diplomatic' in the rigorous sense of the word. To make up this shortcoming, a good number of facsimile pages in a reduced size have been inserted in their appropriate places of the present transcript. They will show how the annotations were made. However, since they may not be sufficiently clear and only impose painful reading on the reader, examples of a certain number of marginalia have been reproduced approximately in actual size and collected in the last section of this Introduction.
Long s and terminal s in a seventeenth-century secretary hand have all been replaced by short modern s but contractions such as ampersands (& ) and tildes ( ~ as in õ ) have not been expanded. Capitalisation has also been preserved. But such letters as A, C, D, H, K, L, M, N, P, V, and W have sometimes turned out, as can be expected from contemporary secretary hand, to be equivocal (even in the middle of a word, especially in the case of M, N, V, or W ) and some of them in the present transcript may not represent what the writer of the marginal notes intended.
There are surprisingly few minim confusions: one of the very few examples is `abomable' for `abominable' in King John, sig. a6. The upper case I was always used for an initial i or j, but it was always the lower case i that was used for a medial j (a unique [Page xxxi] exception is `serjants' in Comedy of Errors, sig. H5v). The writer of the marginalia used, for an initial v or u, the upper case V or the lower case v and also the lower case u probably more frequently than V or v, but with a few exceptions he usually used the lower case u for a medial v. These have all been retained in the present transcript.
Letters or words that are absolutely illegible because of the conditions of the Folio, mostly physical damage done to the paper or sporadic blotting of ink, have been indicated by a set of pointed brackets (< >) and reasons of illegibility given in footnotes. Deleted letters or words have also been indicated by striking through them (
Blotting or `showthrough' owing to the quality of ink and paper has affected a good number of leaves and some annotations have been seriously affected. To read such annotations was not an easy task, but it is hoped that they have all been successfully deciphered, sometimes by consultation with the Folio text. The extent and seriousness of `showthrough' and the degree of reading difficulties may not deserve individual comments, but they have been provided at the foot of relevant pages of the present transcript, because such footnotes indicating the fact may prove useful, for one thing, as evidence of a continuous use of the same ink (presumably at one sitting) that had a tendency to blotting or `showthrough'. Remarkable concentration of blotting or `showthrough' of this kind occurs in such plays (and leaves) as The Comedy of Errors (leaf H5), A Midsummer Night's Dream (leaves N3 and N4), The Merchant of Venice (leaf Q1), As You Like It (leaves Q6 and S1), The Taming of the Shrew (leaves S6 and T5), All's Well That Ends Well (leaves V3, V4 and X1), Twelfth Night (leaves Y3 and Y4), King John (leaf Aa5), King Richard the Second (leaves c3, c4 and c6), The Second Part of King Henry the Fourth (leaves g2, gg2 and gg5), King Henry the Fifth (leaves h1, h6, i2 and k1), The First Part of King Henry the Sixth (leaves l1-l6), The Third Part of King Henry the Sixth (leaves p1 and p6), King Richard the Third (leaf q6), Coriolanus (leaves aa1, aa3, aa6, bb3, bb4 and cc3), Titus Andronicus (leaves dd4 and ee1), Timon of Athens (leaves gg3-gg6, hh1, hh2 and hh5), Julius Cæsar (leaves kk1, kk3-kk6, and ll3), Macbeth (leaves mm3, mm4 and nn1), Hamlet (leaves nn6, oo1, oo3-oo6, pp2 and pp5), King Lear (leaves qq2, qq5 and rr2-rr5), and Antony and Cleopatra (leaves xx1 and xx6).
Also there are a number of slips of the pen in the marginalia. [Page xxxii] Where pointing out such an error is thought to be desirable, a superior figure has been added to the word in question and a note on it provided at the foot of the page or the next page if the note cannot find enough room on the page.
For the sake of convenience, the margins of a Folio page have been divided into six parts and coded accordingly. The upper margin (along with a fairly spacious blank space at the top of the text-space within rules where crowded notes are often found) has been divided into two parts, a and b, so that they can correspond to the two columns of the Folio text. The lower margin (along with a less spacious blank space at the foot of the text-space within rules) has likewise been divided into two parts, c and d. The left and the right margins of a page have been coded e and f ; should the page be a recto, the code of the inner margin will be e, and should it be a verso, the code of it will be f.
These six divisions, of course, cannot be very rigid. They have had to be rather loose and flexible since there are many cases where longer annotations in a division tend to stretch themselves into a neighbouring division. Thus, in the present transcription, marginal annotations have, in principle, been grouped and recorded as a unit in accordance with each divided part of a Folio page. Where this principle is found too dificult to observe (mostly in the case of centred annotations stretching from the left end to the right end of the margin), deviation from it has been indicated in footnotes.
If the annotations occupy only the two divisions of the upper margin, references will be made to both divisions, a and b, alone and no reference will be made to all other divisions c, d, e, and f. If the annotations occupy division b alone, a reference to division a will also be made but with a comment `[ NONE ]'. Likewise, if the annotations occupy only division d in the lower margin, references will be given to divisions a, b, and c and a comment `[ NONE ]' to each of these divisions. If the annotations run across the two divisions of the upper or lower margin, the code given to them will be a-b or c-d.
Charlton Hinman's through-line-numbers (TLN), first adopted in the Norton facsimile edition of The First Folio of Shakespeare (New York, 1968), will be used to assist reference. They will appear always after the indication of divisions a and b and also after the indication of division e or f. Sometimes they will appear after the indication of a combined division a-b or c-d if the TLNs cannot find their proper places separately for divisions a and b or c and d — this [Page xxxiii] can happen only when all the annotations on a page are found centred and running across the two neighbouring divisions.
If the annotations have been written not in the margin but in the text-space within the rules, the fact is indicated by means of a dotted line (......). In the case of the upper margin (i.e., divisions a and b) the annotations will be recorded after the dotted line, while they will precede it in the case of the lower margin (i.e., divisions c and d). Thus, for example, the annotations in the upper margin of a page of The Merchant of Venice (sig. O4v, b, 4-6), which have been written in the text-space within the rules, will be recorded as follows:
.................................. knowledge easier nor practise Loterie power of passionand a two-line annotation in Othello (sig. ss3v, c, 1-2), which has been written in a small blank space right beneath the speech-line at the foot and above the rule will be recorded as follows:
preferrement goes by letter and affection and not by deserued gradation ..................................
If the annotations have been too long to be accommodated comfortably within the width of the type page of the present edition, they will be turned down or, in some difficult cases, divided into two as if they had been written separately in the left part and the right part of the margin (i.e., divisions a and b, and divisions c and d) —in this last case, needless to say, with appropriate footnotes indicating the fact. Thus, for example, a long annotation, written in the upper margin of a page of Hamlet (sig. Nn6, a-b, 2), will be recorded as follows:
No trust to be giuen to promises made by young men ⌊ to womenAnd a group of annotations at the foot of a page of King Lear (sig. rr2v, c, 1-4 and d, 1-3) will be recorded as follows:
rr2v,c Court holie water .................................. The secret wickednesses of hipocriticll man1 Inward feare when the elements reare We must be content with our fortunes fit
rr2v,d descriued and Iudged to be stings1 of2 Necessitie makes wilde things precious descriptio3 of greatest abuses of the time

This index is comprised of two parts: the 'Index of Latin Words' and the 'Index of English Words'. Each part begins with an appropriate centred heading, provides a brief introductory note, and is substantiated by explanatory remarks on the words indexed and by indications of their locations in the Folio.
As has already been mentioned in Introduction, p. xxx, the writer of the marginalia always used an i for a medial j (and also always an I for an initial i or j ). He usually used a u for a medial v, whereas he frequently used a u even for an initial v. Sometimes he used a v and the vn- form for a medial v and the prefix un- respectively. Needless to say, these old forms have not been modernised in this Index.
Marginal notes in Latin, eight examples altogether, only occur
in three plays: The Comedy of Errors (abbreviated in this index as
Err.), Measure for Measure (MM) and The Third Part of King Henry
the Sixth (3H6). Three of the eight examples, namely the second,
the fourth and the fifth examples in the list below (i.e., MM F6v,b,3;
3H6 p1v,a,4; and MM F4v,a,2), are written basically in Italian hand,
while all the rest, like the English annotations, are written in secretary hand.
For the sake of convenience, they have been collected and
arranged in alphabetical order by the opening word of each sentence.
Translations or explanations, all prepared by the present editor's old friend,
Professor Shigetake Yaginuma, have been given within parentheses.
The location in the Folio of each Latin annotation has been
indicated at the end of each note.
This glossarial index aims primarily to help readers who are not
familiar with early seventeenth-century spellings. Familiarity with them
is a matter of experience and the majority of words indexed will
be already known to many readers. In general, obsolete or archaic
words, spelt in their modern or present-day forms, have not been
indexed; but common words such as acknowledge, although, are, or
associates have been indexed where spelt differently as, for example,
acknouledge, altho, ar, or associats. Although quite full, the present
index does not claim to be exhaustive.
In the present index the original word-forms have been preserved
as they occur in the marginal notes. Old forms which are not found
in the Oxford English Dictionary (Second edition, prepared by J. A.
Simpson and E. S. C. Weiner. Oxford : Clarendon Press, 1989) have
been indicated by a prefixed asterisk (*). In view of the probability
that the writer of the marginal notes was a Scot, it is thought
appropriate to use another marker (+) for a good number of words which
the Oxford English Dictionary describes [Page 297] specifically as Scottish in
respect to form or meaning. This marker has been given always
before an asterisk where an indexed word requires both of these signs.
Words to be indexed have been arranged in alphabetical order,
provided with modern forms or other necessary explanations, and
followed by information of locations where they occur in the Folio. Under
each entry, these locations have been arranged in the order of the
Folio plays, as is the order of the plays in the present transcript.
The word-form of each lemma is that of the first example of the word
indexed. Usually no distinction of parts of speech has been
attempted and examples of different parts of speech have been recorded
under one and the same lemma as long as the variant forms only
concerned declensional or conjugational endings.
Abbreviations of the plays are those used in the New Cambridge
Shakespeare (begun under Philip Brockbank in 1984 and published
by the Cambridge University Press) but they have not been italicised.
*acknouledged (acknowledged); WT Cc1,a,2.
means that the word acknouledged(meaning acknowledged ) occurs in The Winter's Tale in the second line of the annotations in the left-hand space of the upper margin of sig. Cc1 and that the word-form has not been recorded in the OED. Similarly,
aff (off); AWW Y1,b,1;R3 s1,a-b,1,t6v,a,3;H8 t6v,a,3;Cor.b3,a, 2;Tim. gg4,b,1;JC kk6,b,1(twice).
means that the word aff (meaning off ) is recorded in the OED and occurs in All's Well That Ends Well in the first line of the annotations in the right-hand space of the upper margin of sig. Y1; twice in King Richard the Third in the first line of the centred annotations in the upper margin of sig. s1 and also in the third line of the annotations in the left-hand space of the upper margin of sig. t6 verso; in King Henry the Eighth in the third line of the annotations in the left-hand space of the upper margin of sig. t6 verso; in Coriolanus in the second line of the annotations in the left-hand space of the upper margin of sig. b3; in Timon of Athens in the first line of the annotations in the right-hand space of the upper margin of sig. gg4; and lastly that the word aff occurs twice in Julius Cæsar in the first line of the annotations in the right-hand space of the upper margin of sig. kk6. Likewise,
+againis (against); John b3,b,1,b3v,d,2,b4v,b,3.
means that againis is a Scottish word that means against, is recorded in the OED, and occurs several times in King John — in the first line of the annotations in the right-hand space of the upper margin of sig. b3, in the second line of the annotations in the right-hand space at the foot of sig. b3 verso, and so on.
