Examples

  • http://hamnet.folger.edu/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?BBID=343958
500  ǂa Title page verso: notice from censor that volume has been approved for publication. 
500  ǂa "Seventy-five copies only, printed on Japanese vellum..."--Inscription in Folger copy signed by Richard Savage.
500  ǂa Folger copy lacks title page. Some title information comes from the half-title; other information is inferred based on the other Shakespearean plays published by this publisher.
500  ǂa Shakespeare content :  based on Shakespeare's Macbeth.
