Comment:        RE: SHK 11.1287 Re: Sonnet Facsimiles

I just completed a series of lectures on the Sonnets, and (while David
Lindley might scoff) being able to use these beautiful images to bring
all the issues of their original publication, as well as the subtleties
of meaning lost in modern spellings and orthographies alive was
invaluable.  These were mostly older students for whom no such material
was available when they were in school.  My gratitude as both a teacher
and a student goes out to you and the others involved in this project.
It also goes out to a culture whose values are so perverse that they
sell their dross at a premium while their greatest treasures are still
given away for free.  I'm hurriedly downloading my own copy of the
series against the day when they come to their senses.
