The first edition of this volume included the seven Arden 3 texts published to date, five of which replaced early Arden 2 editions: Antony and Cleopatra, King Henry V, King Lear, Othello and Titus Andronicus; together with two, The Two Noble Kinsmen and Shakespeare’s Sonnets, which Arden 2 did not include.
