The text of the poem has been newly edited from the first edition of 1593 by John Doebler, Professor of English at ASU, who has also written a scholarly introduction. ... "An effort has been made to reflect something of the first edition in this new limited edition. Through choice of paper, typeface, ornamentation and design as well as through the fidelity of the text in an 'old-spelling' form, the event of Shakespeare's first appearance in print is interpreted for the modern reader.
