When it was first published in 1891, this edition of Sir Philip Sidney's Apologie for Poetrie (or the Defense of Poetry) represented a clear departure from previous editions. The Cambridge Fellow and classical scholar Evelyn S. Shuckburgh set to the task of correcting the numerous errors and alterations which had accumulated over the course of many previous editions, beginning with the folio version of 1598. Shuckburgh's text draws from the collation of seven earlier editions, giving precedence to the first printing of 1595 for which he consulted the copy held in the British Museum. The result is a precise and thorough text, complete with notes, a glossarial index and an introductory description of Sidney's life and works.
