Subject: 8.1079  Q: Mary Wroth's Urania
Comment:        Re: SHK 8.1079  Q: Mary Wroth's Urania

David Schalwyk asks "whether the promised edition of Mary Wroth's Urania
has been published yet, or how and where people at the extremities of
the world might get to read it?"

Is this a moment to mention that MANY library catalogs (both union
catalogs, such as-in North America-OCLC and RLIN, and individual library
catalogs) are available online, so that (*even* for people at the round
earth's imagined corners) to search such catalogs is almost immediately
to find, e.g. (from the RLIN database),

AUTHOR: Wroth, Mary, Lady, ca. 1586-ca. 1640.

       Studies, State University of New York at Binghamton, 1995.

LC CALL NUMBER: PR2399.W7 C68 1995
DDC: 823/.3
LCCN: 95-2654
ISBN: 0-86698-176-4 (acid-free paper)

In addition, Ashgate Scolar now makes available a facsimile edition,
also edited by the late Josephine Roberts [ISBN 185928101X] for
US$99.50; but you might, at present, have to search their website to
know about this.

An enormous amount of basic bibliographical information is now readily
available for anyone who has (as many academics *do* have) access to the
web. To discover it requires a bare minimum of "search sophistication."
While many of the highly-touted benefits of the web have yet to be
real-ized, and the amount of sheer garbage that it makes available is
(more or less literally) stunning, *this* sort of information at least
tends to be vast, reliable, and accessible. It may even, now and again,
be useful.

As far as I know there is no complete edition of this work. A chapter of
Mary Wroth's 'Urania' is included in 'An Anthology of Seventeenth
Century Fiction' (ed. by P.Salzman, Oxford, O.U.P., 1991); the whole
text (STC 26051) is available, however, in microfilm (UMI). Maria
