Excerpt from A New Variorum Edition of Shakespeare, Vol. 14: Loves Labour's Lost

Again, in a prompter's copy we should expect to find the Acts, if not the Scenes, designated. Whereas, in the Quarto of r 598, there is no division into Acts, but the play proceeds from beginning to end with out intermimion. Herein another problem confronts us: the proofs are clear that the Folio was printed from the Quarto yet the Folio is divided into Acts, - injudiciously, it is true, but still divisions there which are not in the copy from which it must have been printed.

Whithersoever we turn, therefore, in our attempts to penetrate the mystery of the text of the Quartos and of the Folio, we are doomed to be baf¿ed. Our consolation must be that the subject is one of rela tively snail importance, and that the excellence of the text must rise or fall by its own merits, without reference to the source whence it sprang.
