A Midsummer Night's Dream

The title page of this early edition advertises the play by associating it with some star players.

The page boasts that the play had been performed many times by Shakespeare's acting company for their elite patron, the Lord Chamberlain of the Queen's Court.

After King James I was crowned in 1603, the company gained a royal patron, becoming the King's Men.
