Evidence

?I now read for the first time ""The Tempest"", ""Measure for Measure"", ""Love?s Labour?s Lost"", and many other of Shakespeare?s comedies, besides the supreme tragedies, among [them] the greatest creations of the human intellect ? ""Hamlet"", ""Macbeth"", ""Othello"" and ""Lear"". From no ""edition de luxe"" did I read. The plays were published by Dick, cost me one penny each, a sum well suited to my means. No matter that the price was small and the paper poor; no matter that there were neither theatre nor stage, neither actors or orchestra. All the more scope was given to fancy and imagination.?
