This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1883 edition. Excerpt: ... hour is fully out." "even"--straight, in a straight line. So John ii. 1, 576, --"The world, who of itself is peised well, Made to run even upon even ground." 1 Hy. IV. iii. 1, 114, --"And then he the Trent runs straight and even." "Aim'd fully even "--the reverse of " thou aimest all awry" (2 Hy VI. ii. 4, 58). The above is the reading of the second folio, except that it has "And fully even." It is evident, however, from the father's "now thou shalt not miss thy aim," and the son's "I'll never trouble you if I may spy them," that his father tells him the piece was perfectly aimed. The first folio has, --"And euen these three dayes haue I watcht." Delius and Staunton print as the second folio. Dyce, Singer, and the Camb. eds. print as the first folio. Dyce considers the text corrupt. The folio has a comma after "plac'd"--all the compared eds. have a semicolon. Note (3.) Ib. Line 95, --"He beckons with his hand, and smiles on me, As who should say 'When I am dead and gone, Remember to avenge me on the French.'--Plantagenet, I will; and, like to Nero, Play on the lute, beholding the towns burn." Compare T. N. v. 1, 121, --"Why should I not, had I the heart to do it, Lihe to the Egyptian thief, at point of death, Kill what Hove?" The folio has merely "and like thee," the second folio has "and Nero-like will." Malone read "and like thee, Nero," and so the compared eds. print, except Dyce, who, dropping the word " will," reads with the second folio. "As who should say," i.e. As if he would say, --see Note (2), M. of V. Note-(4.) Act III. Scene 3, Line 47, --"Look on more
