The sonnet shared by Romeo and Juliet at their first meeting, in which their playful banter with the religious language of pilgrims and saints leads to a kiss, was adapted both by John Weever in a sonnet dedicated to Shakespeare , and by the compiler of The Passionate Pilgrim. John Danter published the first quarto, and although his name appears in the imprint, he printed only the first four sheets. In a practice typical of the book trade, Danter shared the printing with Edward Allde, who printed the final six sheets of the play, as evidenced by the varying sizes of type and additional lines on each of the pages printed by Allde. The copy shown above was once owned by the Shakespearean actor David Garrick, who bequeathed it to the British Museum upon his death in This copy became part of the British Library's collections under the British Library Act, and is one of five known to exist according to the English Short Title Catalogue.
