The Council of the Shakespeare Society desire it to be understood that they are not answerable for any opinions or observations that may appear in the Society's publications; the Editors of the several works being alone responsible for the same.

PREFACE,

The only introduction necessary to the ensuing volume, is the statement that, like the two others, entitled “ The Shakespeare Society's Papers,” in 1844 and 1845, it has arisen out of the continued transmission to the Council of essays and documents not of sufficient length to be printed by themselves. A species of miscellany, devoted to the illustration of the Life and Works of our great Dramatist and of his contemporaries, has thus been established; and it is earnestly requested that the members of the Society will continue to forward to the Council such information of the same kind as they may now possess, or may hereafter procure.
