Note
  • A piratical and almost identical reprint ('B'), possibly by W. Feales, of the 1724 Darby edition ('A') (See Dawson, G.E. Studies in bibliography, 1 (1948-1949): 47-58)
  • There exist three editions of the 1724 Othello, cataloged separately: the original edition 'A'; this edition 'B', a pirated line-by-line reprint of 'A'; and edition 'C', which has different settings of type and ornaments. In editions 'A' and 'B', the final ornament on p. 96 depicts two nudes sitting on an urn; in 'C', it is a shield with two birds on top. In editions 'A' and 'C', "Poulson" falls underneath "John$Dar" in the imprint (where $ symbolizes a space); in edition 'B', "Poulson" falls underneath "$John$Da"
  • ESTC and Ford citations are undifferentiated descriptions for editions 'A', 'B', and 'C'
  • "Price 1s" follows imprint
  • Signatures: A-H́œ
  • Title page vignette; head- and tailpieces; initials
