The Third Folio  1663/1664

Published in 1663 and then republished in 1664 with a supplement of seven additional plays attributed to Shakespeare, the Third Folio is regarded by scholars to have been rather carefully edited, but without reference to the printerís copy. Bibliographical evidence indicates that the supplement was an afterthought, and of seven plays scholars accept only one, Pericles, as belonging in the Shakespeare canon.  This is Periclesís first and belated appearance in a folio collection, although it was one of the ten plays that Thomas Pavier included in his collection of 1619.
