ASSORTED QUARTO EDITIONS POST 1623.

These are quarto editions of Shakespeare plays in the collection published after the First Folio.  They are not important from a textual standpoint, as are the First Folio and the quarto editions of plays published before 1623. Rather they are indicative of which plays 17th century publishers and booksellers considered to be of continuing interest to the reading public who could not afford a folio edition.  In other words, they would sell.
