The 1600 First Quarto edition of A Midsummer Night's Dream is the only text of the play to have been printed in Shakespeare's lifetime and has served as the source for virtually all subsequent editions. It has many features suggesting that it was printed from Shakespeare's 'foul papers' - his manuscript draft - and that this draft had undergone revision before reaching the publishing house.
