Subject:        Inchbald's British Theatre

Has anyone ever seen a set of Inchbald's British Theatre which includes A
Midsummer Night's Dream?  This is usually listed as 25 vols, and NUC lists five
plays to each of the 25 vols.  (NUC also mentions two other sets of 20 vols,
but doesn't list the plays).  The 125 plays listed by NUC do not include King
John.  However, I own a broken set (of which the highest numbered vol is 32)
containing three plays per vol., and in which KJ is included.  This discrepancy
has encouraged me to explore the possibility that MND may be somewhere
included, though I have not seen any mention of it.  Any information gratefully
received!

I've tried to post this request on several occasions, but several respondents
indicate they have never seen it. So, otra vez:

I'm reworking a recently published piece on "Dysthymic Dicks", that is,
depressed detectives, and at the beginning cite work done on Hamlet as an
amateur sleuth, but don't remember the precise reference. Professor Barbara
Everett by private communications says she has heard this discussed passim,
pointed me to John Kerrigan's recent work on revenge tragedy, which so far
haven't been able to find at local bookstores. In any event, does anyone know
of a specific reference to Hamlet's sleuthing, or does anyone want to make
relevant comments on this score, or does anyone know if Kerrigan cites Hamlet
in this respect.

"For this relief, much thanks..."
