Hmmm.  I don't know where you're located, but here in Chicago both
Barnes & Noble stores I go to (including the University of Chicago
Bookstore) had the new Riverside a couple of months ago.  I know it's
also at Borders-in fact, that was where I first saw it.  You might try
asking the staff, if you haven't already done so, or asking them again,
if you have.

Regarding Shakespeare's flowers, there's a book of that title by Jessica
Kerr, illustrated by Anne Ophelia Dowden (New York: Thomas Y. Crowell,
1969).  And there are many other books that touch on the subject.

Comment:        RE: SHK 8.0515  Q: Welsh

Gabriel Wasserman asks how 'Harry LeRoy' is a 'Welshman'. Henry V is a
Welshman (a fact of which Fluellen is inordinately proud) by virtue of
having been born in Monmouth - he is frequently referred to in
Shakespeare as 'Harry [of] Monmouth'. He was born there because Monmouth
was one of the great estates comprising the Duchy of Lancaster,
bequeathed by John of Gaunt to his son Henry IV, Henry Bolingbroke -
Bolingbroke being another great Duchy estate (though in Lincolnshire,
not Wales).
