PREFACE.

THE first edition of Shakspeare's King Richard II., and the most accurate that has come down to us, is the quarto of 1597. Three other quarto editions preceded the folio of 1623, viz. : a second edition in 1598, a third in 1608, and a fourth in 1615.

In the third edition the play was enlarged, as the title tells us, with new additions of the Parliament sceane, and the Deposing of King Richard. The first folio, however, is our best authority for the text of this part of the play, which consists of about 160. lines in Act IV., beginning with the fourth line of p. 90, “May it please you,' &c., and ending with the sixth line of p. 96, “ That rise thus nimbly,' &c. The new additions had probably been a portion of the play as originally written, and their omission in stage performance, and in the first two quartos, suggested by the fear of offending Elizabeth; for that queen was very sensitive on the subject of Richard's deposition, on account of the frequent attempts made by the King of Spain and other foreign powers to incite her subjects to depose her.
