Hello - has anybody seen the individual version of the RSC Hamlet edition? I'm looking to find out if the individual editions have more scholarly material in them than the initially published one-volume complete edition of the works.

Every edition seems, acc. to Amazon, to be exactly 256 pages long, which is strange - Hamlet is usually longer than the other plays. Makes you wonder...

It seems there might be a few things new in these individual editions. According to the publisher:

--Expanded introductions and an overview of Shakespeare's theatrical career

--A new section which explores the theatrical history of the play as well as modern-day production choices through original interviews with today's leading directors and theatrical professionals

--A scene by scene analysis and key facts about the play

--A Shakespeare chornology

--Family trees where appropriate

--Black and white photos featuring original production shots from the RSC

The first batch is:
Midsummer
Hamlet
King Lear
Love's Labours Lost
Richard III
Tempest
