Paul,

Try Van Doren at used bookstores.  I see it everywhere, and cheap in
paperback.  There are also used books to be found on the internet,
though the postage could cost more than the price of the Van Dorens I
see used.  www.bibliofind.com is one.

I believe Granville-Barker is still in print.  Stanford Bookstore has
some volumes.  I'll let others compare the single volumes with the
collections, but I imagine they are the same texts.

Best,
Mike Jensen

I have an Anchor paperback, #A 11 for which I paid 95cents back in the
day, as my students persist in saying.  It's a reprint of Shakespeare by
Mark VanDoren (yes, brother of the notorious... ) which was originally
published by Henry Holt in 1939.  My Doubleday Anchor edition was
published 1953, but mine is not a first edition; I must have gotten it
in the very early 60's.

There are several EXCELLENT used book sites online; do NOT buy used/out
of print books from the online behemoths-they use the same sources we
can get to, then double what they paid before selling to you.

One such is www.bookfinder.com and another is www.bibliofind.com

A single bookstore online is www.powells.com and another, which you may
have visited in person, is www.codysbooks.com

The library at the high school whose classrooms I've inhabited for 34
years has a pair of Granville-Barkers, but as I'm at home I cannot give
you information about them.

Happy hunting!

The Granville Barker prefaces are available in a series of vest pocket
sized volumes published in 1995 by a company called Heinemann.  I have
seen them shelved at Barnes & Noble.

I have a one volume edition of the Van Doren published by Doubleday
under the Anchor imprint in 1953.  It is probably out of print.  But I
think it is overrated anyway.  In 293 pages Van Doren discusses 37 plays
and the poems.  The essays are necessarily brief and superficial, more
like a summary than a criticism.

I sent more specific information to Paul off-list about possible copies
available of the Van Doren Shakespeare, but I thought it might be
helpful to other list members to pass along the source I've found most
helpful for this type of query/problem.  It's Advanced Book Exchange,
Inc., out of Victoria, B.C.  They serve as a catalogue/online marketing
service for large numbers of smaller used bookshops that might otherwise
not be able to afford an online presence.  It's also a way of
patronizing smaller shops and spreading some of the business around and
away from the Amazon.com/Barnes & Noble superstores.  Their URL is:

www.abebooks.com

For what it's worth.  Happy searching to all.

Cheers,

Mark Van Doren's Shakespeare was first published in 1939 by Henry Holt.
The edition I still have from my salad days is a Doubleday Anchor
paperback (undated), but most likely published in the late 50s or early
60s.  It cost 95 cents!
