Notes (Hamnet)
Port. (on t.p.) in state 3.
Some plays are designated "good" in an 18th-century hand in their caption, Merry Wives (D2 recto), Errors (H1 recto), Much Ado (I3 recto), and Merch. (04 recto), and likewise Cymb. is designated "rare" (3b1 recto). Passages in Macb. are marked by adjacent pencil strokes (2o4 recto, b27-29, and 2o5 verso, a49-53). Other ms. additions include the inscription "Collegii Sancti Albani Anglorum Vallisoleti" ([superscript pi]A3 recto) and the signature with rubric "Joannes Luca S.J." (*2 recto), possibly that of the English Jesuit John Lucas.
First issue, variant Ic1, with [superscript pi]A5 recto ("Effigies" page) in state Ib--as formulated by William B. Todd, "Issues and states of the Second Folio and Milton's epitaph on Shakespeare," Studies in bibliography, v. 5 (1952-53), p. 81-108.
Folger copy 7, formerly the property of St. Alban's College (the English College), Valladolid, Spain, bears (on t.p.) the certificate of a censor for the Inquisition ("Opus auctoritate Sancti officij permissum et expurgatum eadem auctoritate per Guilielmum Sanchæum e Socte Jesu") and marks of censorship. M. for M. (F1 recto-G6 verso) has been completely excised. Passages are obliterated in Temp. (A1 recto and A5 recto), Much Ado (K3 recto and K6 verso), LLL (L5 recto and verso, L6 recto, M2 recto, and M3 recto), Merch. (P2 recto), AYL (R3 verso), All's Well (V4 verso), John (a5 recto and verso and b5 recto), 1 Hen. IV (e4 verso), 1 Hen. VI (l6 recto), 2 Hen. VI (o1 recto and o2 recto), Hen. VIII (x2 verso, x4 recto, x5 recto, y3 recto, y5 verso, and y6 recto and verso), Troilus (2b4 recto), Ham. (2q4 recto), and Lear (2s6 verso). Earlier spine removed to curatorial file.
Imperfections affect text slightly on I1, Y2, d1, and h3,6 and very slightly on e4, f1, x2, and 2v4.
Signatures: [superscript pi]A⁶ *⁴ A-2B⁶ 2C² a-3c⁶ 3d⁴.
See Sidney Lee, "Shakespeare and the Inquisition: A Spanish Second Folio," in his, Elizabethan and Other Essays (1929), 184-95, first published 1922. Lee cites most of the obliterations and ms. additions although not always fully or accurately. (Full list of obliterations and ms. additions on file.) Lee names the censor as Guillén Sanchez rather than Guillermo Sánchez, misreading the censor's signature ("Gulielmum" for "Guilielmum"). Otherwise, the English Jesuit William Sankey has been nominated as the censor, but the hand of the censor's certificate is apparently Spanish.
Colophon: Printed at London by Thomas Cotes, for John Smethwick, William Aspley, Richard Hawkins, Richard Meighen, and Robert Allot, 1632.
