A note of interest to London-based UK subscribers to the list:
 
The paperback facsimile of the first folio is available in a WC1 bookshop,
priced at #40 uk.
 
I saw the book in the window of Jack Duncan (Cartoons and Books)]
44 Museum Street
London WC1A 1LY
+44 0171 242 5335
fax +44 0171 242 2978
 
The bookshop is located about two minutes away from the British Museum.
(needless to add, I have no interest in the shop, but am merely relaying
information).  The man at the desk claims to be the only uk source of the text.

On the question of Norton's response to the publication of an inexpensive
facsimile of the Folio:  I understand that, faced with the possibility that
someone as for instance at the Folger Library might want to bring out a folio
edition, since the Norton is now unavailable, Norton is in fact planning to
re-release its own, or perhaps to update its own facsimile edition.  Someone
with more information may want to confirm this rumor, but it does at least
explain the profit motive behind the wish to deny cheaper - i.e., less
expensive - editions of the facsimile.

The question as to whether Tillyard can be trusted might be found surprising;
in the fifty years or so since he read Tillyard quite a lot of rather eminent
scholars and good thinkers have written about the way Shakespeare and his
contemporaries experienced reality, and a lot of them have included critical
discussions of Tillyard. Has the questioner not read anything of this?
Apparently not. Perhaps a reading of T. McAlindon's "Shakespeare's Tragic
Cosmos" (Cambridge UP, 1990) would be a good place to begin? Or perhaps the
various mentions of Tillyard found in a simple critical reader like
"Shakespearean Tragedy" ed. John Drakakis in the Longman Critical Readers
series (1992). I am sure that more qualified people can offer far more and
better suggestions.
