The Merry Wives of Windsor (Q1) by William Shakespeare (1602).

In 1602 a book entitled 'A Most pleasant and excellent conceited Comedie, of Syr Iohn Falstaffe, and the merrie Wiues of Windsor. Entermixed with sundrie variable and pleasing humors, of Syr Hugh the Welch Knight, Iustice Shallow, and his wise Cousin M. Slender. With the swaggering vaine of Auncient Pistoll, and Corporall Nym' appeared on book stalls. This first quarto edition of The Merry Wives of Windsor differs radically from the version that was later printed in the First Folio, and it has been the basis for some hugely influential theories about the transmission of Shakespeare's plays in print. A rare opportunity to see (and hear) just how different it is.
