Notes (Hamnet): 
Published in open competition with Robert Walker.
Notes (Hamnet): 
Tonson published single plays separately, some in several editions, then issued volume title pages for binding in eight volumes. No two sets will be the same, individual plays differing as to edition/issue. Volume title pages are mis-dated 1635. Each play has a dated title page, as well as separate pagination and register. Some plays are dated as early as 1732 and as late as 1736. See Ford (p. 58-140) for imprint and pagination information for individual plays, as Tonson used 2 imprints (seemingly simultaneously), sometimes for different issues of the same play.
