I'm passing along a post I received re. the Shakespeare DATABASE cd-rom
because it gives more detail and also tells of another Shakespeare cd-rom
I haven't yet seen.

---------- Forwarded message ----------
 
Dear Professor Gross,
 
Prof. Joachin Neuhaus forwarded your email to him concerning the Shakespeare
database to us, as our company is the North American distributor for the
cd-rom's publisher, Georg Olms Verlag.  Professor Neuhaus can answer questions
about content, but not about pricing.  However, he did tell me that supposedly
there are new prices for subscribers and more than one user version.  The
problem is that I have not heard anything about that yet from Olms, and I
probably won't be able to until the Frankfurt Book Fair closes.  So it's a bit
confusing.  I think Olms prematurely announced the database before a lot of the
details had been worked out, which is only adding to the confusion.  I will try
to find out as much as I can in the coming weeks and keep you in- formed.
 
In the meantime, we do have another cd-rom entitled "Shakespeare: His Life,
Times & Works," based on c. 5000 pages of manuscripts and documents from the
16th & 17th centuries. The menu offers 5 main sections: Prologue: The Life,
which gives biographical details; Theatre, which examines the workings of the
Elizabethan stage; The Social and Intellectual Contexts; Sources; and Texts,
which contains the complete works in the original.  Each section breaks down
into a variety of subtopics offering descriptions and pictures of the actual
documents which can then be read in close-up and printed out.
 
Some of the texts included are John Aubrey's "Brief Life of Shakespeare";
Visscher's "View of London in 1660": Thomas Heywood's "Apology for Actors";
selections from Hakluyt's "Principal Navigations (1598-1600); and "The Hysterie
of Hamlet" (1582), the only surviving copy, at Trinity College, Cambridge.
 
Minimum requirements: PC386 with Windows, 4MB RAM, 8MB free on hard disk, DOS
3.1 or higher, VGA monitor.  Price is $200.  The publisher is World Microfilms,
London (we're their N.A. agent).
 
We also have other Shakespeare and drama collections on microfiche.  If you
would like me to send you a list of titles, please let me know.
 
Very truly yours,
Todd Bludeau
