This volume in the Malone Society Reprints series consists of a photofacsimile of the Huntington Library copy of the first edition of Lyly's Sapho and Phao (1584), together with the songs from the first collected edition of Lyly's plays, published by Edward Blount in 1632. The introduction discusses the relationship between the first edition and that represented by the British Library copy (now known, following the work of David Bevington, to be the second), and traces the bibliographical history of the play from its first publication until Blount's edition of 1632. The volume facilitates the study of the relationship between the three quartos, and in particular the priority of that represented by the Huntington Library copy.
