The Womans Prize

By John Fletcher

Meg Powers Livingston

Published by Manchester University Press

This edition of John Fletcher's 'The Woman's Prize' is based upon the Lambarde Manuscript, held by the Folger Shakespeare Library. The edition is photofacsimile, since it is in a clear hand that requires no corresponding diplomatic transcription. The manuscript includes passages expurgated from the text printed in the Beaumont and Fletcher first folio of 1647. The introduction to the edition considers the provenance, characteristics, and dating of the manuscript, and Henry Herberts censorship of the play for its 1633 revival.
