Is there any comment on the meaning of *We are such things as dreams are made
on*? I have often heard it quoted as *dreams are made **of**, which does not
mean the same thing. It is a wonderful conceit to think that we are made of
such things, such flimsy things that dreams can be about us. E.L.Epstein

Is it still possible to find Cornmarket Press reprints anywhere but on
reference library shelves and in second hand shops?  In the sixties and
seventies Cornmarket produced reproductions of Restoration Shakespeare
adaptations and other early publications. Most of the Shakespeare adaptations
are available in no other editions.  I have tried to find them at their old
London address, 42/43 Conduit Street, but without success.    I suspect they
are defunct, but does anyone know if the books are available from any dealer?
 
Any information would be welcomed.
