THE WARWICK SHAKESPEARE.

April, 1893. Messrs. BLACKIE & Son beg to announce a new edition of Shakespeare under the title of The Warwick Shakespeare." The plays most commonly read in Higher Schools and Colleges will be issued in separate volumes, neatly bound in cloth. The text of each play, which will be reasonably expurgated, will be accompanied by an Introduction, Notes, and a Glossary. The chief characteristic of this edition will be the prominence given to the literary and aesthetic view, as distinct from the merely philological. At the same time the philological side will not be neglected. The Introduction will be divided into clearly marked sections, the literary and critical matter being thus separated from questions of date, authorship, &c.

The editing has been entrusted to competent scholars of literary as well as academic distinction.

The following plays will be issued immediately:RICHARD THE SECOND. - Edited by C. H. HERFORD,

Litt.D., Professor of English at University College, Aberystwyth; Examiner to the University of London: formerly scholar of Trinity College, Cam
