Date and text

The play was entered into the Register of the Stationers' Company on 8 October 1600 by the bookseller Thomas Fisher, who published the first quarto edition later that year.[4] A second quarto was printed in 1619 by William Jaggard, as part of his so-called False Folio.[4] The play next appeared in print in the First Folio of 1623. The title page of Q1 states that the play was "sundry times publickely acted" prior to 1600.[5] The first performance known with certainty occurred at Court on 1 January 1604.
