What happened was: my web order was answered by ITPS. The salesperson
informed me that <italic>2 Henry IV</italic> in hard cover was
"canceled"-whatever that means. And so I conclude-too hastily?--that not
all items listed at the Arden website are in print. I did order the
paperback (which is available), and paid $5 over the cover price for the
privilege of ordering via the internet. Obviously, I value the Arden 2s,
and wish ITPS had a better handle on things. (And, moreover, I wish the
scholarly tradition of the Arden 2s had been maintained.)

Yours, Bill Godshalk

We are urgently looking into the Arden ordering problems. Please bear
with us - I will post information as soon as I can. All Ardens as listed
on our website at <http://www.ardenshakespeare.com/> are in print.

Regards,
Nick

To Bill Godschalk and the others that have emailed me with their
concerns about ordering Ardens:

I do apologise for the various mix-ups which you seem to be
encountering. As of today ITPS, our warehouse in Kentucky, have all the
Arden Shakespeare paperbacks and 21 of the hardbacks in stock. We are
investigating their negative response to your query, Bill.

To order an Arden Shakespeare, please contact your local bookstore, who
should order from ITPS customer services (1-800-842 3636). If your
bookstore has problems, you can contact ITPS direct.

If you have any further problems, please contact me direct and off-list
at <

much information as possible (e.g. name of contacts you spoke to) would
be useful so that we can easily trace the queries.

Many thanks for all the responses to my queries about Tempest reading
and Shakespeare editions. I'm now fully equipped with an excellent
looking Tempest reading list and the desire to buy both the New Norton
and Riverside Shakespeare editions...

Thanks again,
John McWilliams
