Physical impossibility

When looking through some things of a relative who passed away recently, I found this:

It’s one book, not even heavy, and it has all the plays and all the poems, plus an extensive glossary and a character index. How is this possible?

[Interesting to note it does not have a scene V in 2 Henry IV, IV – just as in another edition I have (well, it actually isn’t mine, but if you keep something long enough, it legally becomes yours…….right?), scene V is part of scene IV. In the New Cambridge Shakespeare and all online sources I know it’s a scene of its own. I think it’s time to find out where this difference is coming from.]
