Subject:        Riverside Edition

A further update on the Riverside mis-printings that I thought might be
of interest.  Yankee Book Pedlar, one of the largest vendors of modern
books to libraries in this country, reports that after our alert, they
checked part of their current stock of the Riversides and all the ones
they checked were defective!  They say, further, "It sounds like the
book had a second print run that went awry, and the publisher may need
to recall all the copies shipped against that second print run. . . I
would hope they would at least provide some kind of errata sheet, if
they don't reprint."

But just think of the irony, SHAKSPERIANS!  Many of us spend weeks
tracking down printing variations in 16th century editions when we can
have our very own in 1997!
