This, the first edition of the collected plays of William Shakespeare, is commonly known as the First Folio. Printed in London and issued in 1623 by Isaac Jaggard and Edward Blount, the First Folio contains 36 plays, 18 of which had never before appeared in print, including Macbeth, The Tempest, and Julius Caesar. Before the First Folio, a number of Shakespeare's plays had been published in various smaller formats that frequently contained significant textual divergences between editions.

According to Pforzheimer, this set of Nabbes' works was issued by Nicholas Fussell, who had likely purchased rights to the individual plays, in large part from remainder stock owned by Charles Greene. It is unclear how many of the titles bound together in extant copies were originally issued together by Fussell and how many were added in by later owners. Therefore each title is also cataloged separately. See Pfrozheimer for a more detailed description.

Three issues of Tonson's 1734 edition have been identified. In this issue, Tonson's name is in the imprint; the verso of the title page has the catchword: "Hamlet"; the headpiece on p. 5 (sig. A3) is framed; there is no endpiece at foot of p. 107; and the Chetwood advertisement is on p. [108] (leaf E6v).--ESTC
