	[The following is an excerpt from private correspondence, with
	the permission of its author, which raises an issue we have
	not yet discussed on SHAKSPER.  Development and discussion is,
	of course, invited.  -- k.s.]
 
...I have already used the Blayney book [Peter Blayney's catalogue for
the Folger Library Exhibit, *The First Folio of Shakespeare*, reviewed
in SHAKSPER 2.0???] most interestingly, for *Troilus*.
 
I wonder why the *Riverside* editors without flinching call it
"The History of Troilus and Cressida" in their heading above the
Dramatis Personae.  I guess they silently took the Quarto's label, "The
Historie of Troylus and Cresseida," though the play was pasted into the
tragedies section of the Folio and was labeled a tragedy there in title
and running heads.  Bonian and Walley's advertisement for the second
state of the Quarto seems to label the play a comedy for its wit, which
further complicates the generic issue....

Can Ann Miller tell us all how to access Cambridge University Library from the
US?  Is it horribly expensive?

Might I ask fellow SHAKSPERIANS to clip and send (with name of newspaper,
date, and page) any reviews of local summer Shakespeare productions? Although
we manage to skim a select group of major newspapers for reviews, we can't
hope to cover many regional or local papers. Reviews--as well as offprints
or notices of publications--should be sent to:
 
			James L. Harner
			Editor, World Shakespeare Bibliography
			Department of English
			Texas A&M University
			College Station, TX 77843-4227
