The New Shakespeare is a series of single play editions of the works of William Shakespeare, published by the Cambridge University Press between 1921 and 1969.[1] The series was edited by Arthur Quiller-Couch and J. Dover Wilson.[1] The last volume of the series was Henry VIII (play), edited by J. C. Maxwell in 1969.[2]

The series was preceded by The Cambridge Shakespeare, 1863-1866 (see Shakespeare's editors.) The series was replaced by the New Cambridge Shakespeare, which started in 1984.
