Notes: Vol. 1 advertisement: "the publishers have not omitted any opportunity of making this edition as compleat as possible. They have carefully corrected a large errata in that printed in London; and also, with great pains and trouble have distributed into their proper places a number of curious notes, sent to Mr. Johnson by some of his learned friends, and by him inserted in an appendix. They have also made some valuable additions from the Twenty plays of Shakespeare, lately published by that ingenious critic George Stevens, Esq., by which means they hope to give this edition a preference to any now extant."
