The Second part of King Henry the Fourth
Changes from Moby
Scene headings for Prologue and Epilogue are untidy. For all speeches by Lord Chief-Justice the character name heading has not been formatted properly and appears as though it were part of the preceding speech. The only two speeches of Lady Northumberland are incorrectly attributed to Northumberland.
At 1.1.172 Travers' line "this strained passion …" is not in First Folio.
Speech at 2.2.72 beginning "Come, you virtuous ass": Collier’s footnote
states "all the old editions assign the speech to Poins instead of Bardolph, to whom it evidently belongs".
At 2.4.11 the sentence beginning "Dispatch" is only in the quarto and was mistakenly assigned to second drawer - Collier footnote
. At 2.4.150 "faitors" corrected to "fates" - Collier footnote
. The First Folio ends 2.4 at 367 with "O, run, Doll, run; run, good Doll". Various versions are available of the remaining lines - some have "she comes blubbered" as a stage direction. The present version can be found here
At 3.2.34 a speech by Shallow is incorrectly given to Shadow. At 3.2.52 "Good morrow, honest gentlemen" is incorrectly given to Bardolph.
At 4.3.41 some texts have: "There, cousin, I came, saw, and overcame". In 5.5 two speeches by Henry V are incorrectly attributed to Henry IV.
