Subject:        Middleton Edition

In their accounts of the state of the forthcoming Oxford edition of "The
Collected Works of Thomas Middleton," both Dutton and Burt are
technically correct, although the apparent difference between them may
seem confusing.  It is certainly the intention and expectation of myself
and my fellow general editors that the editorial and general editorial
work will be finished by the end of this summer; at least 95% of it is
already completed.  How soon after that the edition appears in its dual
format-in print, and electronically-depends upon factors outside my
control, which is why I am unwilling to forecast a date of publication:
that will be determined by how quickly the electronic editor, John
Lavagnino, can solve the few remaining software problems, and how
quickly Oxford University Press can print and bind the text from the
computer-generated bromides of the pages which Lavagnino will deliver.
Once the Press has bromides in its possession, it usually takes only
three months for publication: six weeks for printing and binding,
another six for distribution before the official publication date.  USA
publication will probably lag behind UK publication by a further six
weeks, as is usual in such cases. I do not expect that publication will
be delayed for "a considerable time", nor do I want to give the
impression conveyed by Burt that the whole edition is just a distant
gleam at the end of an interminable tunnel. Lavagnino has taken (unpaid)
leave from his other work in order to concentrate on finishing his part
of the edition, and I will return to working on it as soon as I finish
this sending this email.

Professor Williams asked me to pass this information along.


AEB is still sort of in business.  We are currently under threat of
having our college and university funding cut off.  If that happens then
we are out of business.  The last issue published, this spring, was N.S.
9.2.  The email problem is that the third character in my address
(

 ) is a zero, not an O.  This appears to be a
problem with many screens which do not show the slashed zero.
