Can someone tell me the significance of the "Temple" single-play
editions of Shakespeare-or, more specifically, whether it is at all
significant that a middle-class, cultured, well-educated, slightly
romantic young lady in 1916 would travel to a country-house weekend with
a copy of the Temple Shakespeare Othello (as opposed to some other
edition)?

(Shaw fans will be able to spot the reference to Heartbreak House, which
I am currently dramaturging at People's Light & Theatre Company, in
Malvern, PA.)

Thanks.
Cary

Can anyone help me determine how men in Tudor England were appointed to
the positions in London government such as Sheriff, Under-Sheriffs, and
"Commissioner of Sewers"?  Also, how might I learn more about the duties
that came with those jobs?

Thank you.
