Subject:        Howard Staunton's work
 
Howard Staunton edited an edition of Shakespeare shortly before the publication
of the Cambridge edition in the 1860's.  I have seen a handful of citations of
his work in footnotes, but I would be interested in an overall evaluation of
his contribution to Shakespeare scholarship.
 
Staunton is probably better known as a chess champion.  At some point he
partially retired from chess because of his literary work.  I know much more
about chess than Shakespeare, and am just trying to get a better impression of
Staunton's overall career.
 
Thanks in advance for any references.

My fellow SHAKSPERians,
 
I'm moving to Washington, D.C., this weekend.  I was wondering if anyone out
there is in someway connected to the Folger Insititute and could help me get
aquainted with the stuff that goes on there.
 
I don't want to take up too much space, so I will leave the details to personal
replies.  Thanks.
