(1836–1914), English academic and editor, with W. G. Clark and J. Glover, of the first Cambridge edition of Shakespeare (9 vols., 1863–6). Its textual apparatus included variant readings from all early and some later editions. Its one-volume version, the Globe (1864), created a reference standard for almost a century.
