Originally written in 1623 by Shakespeare, Tidcombe notes: "Coriolanus was first mentioned in 'Shakespeare's Plays and Poems', 1912, and in the leaflet 'Catalogue Raisonne' of April 1913 it was announced for publication in September or October. The book was about half printed when Cobden-Sanderson's illness intervened, but he continued to work on revising the text and compiling the errata while he convalesced at a nursing home in October. A special Notice issued in September 1913 stated that publication of Coriolanus would be postponed until February or March 1914."
