In SHK 8.0731, Bill McRae inquired about printer's errors in the New
Riverside Shakespeare.  In SHK 8.0735, Mike Field complained that his
copy of the New Riverside was defective.

After these two posts, I examined my own copy of the New Riverside and
detected nothing wrong with it.

Yesterday, while I was at the Folger Shakespeare Library, I took the
time to examine the four copies in the collection.  The one in the
Reference Room was just as mine at home without the problems Mike Field
discovered; however, the other three copies were just as Mike had
described.

It would surely appear that some copies were misprinted, and I would
suggest that anyone who has one of these should return it for one that
is not misprinted.

PS: Members might be interested to read my mini-review of the Riverside
in the Fall 1996 issue of *The Shakespeare Newsletter* (46.3: 67) in the
Table of Contents column.  In the upcoming Spring 1997 edition, I review
the Bevington updated 4th edition and the Norton.

Dear members,

I want to order a copy of Norton Shakespeare. Please let me know the
editor's name and the full title.

Thank you.

Best wishes,
Todok.
