Subject:        Penguin's Renaissance Dramatists Series

Yesterday, in a bookstore specializing in remainders, I found a Penguin
edition of George Chapman's Plays and Poems. The plays included are All
Fools, The Widow's Tears, and Bussy D'Ambois, all in early modern
spelling. This has not been available in the US; the prices on the back
cover are for the UK and Australia. It's apparently part of a series
labeled Renaissance Dramatists. Can someone in the UK or Australia
enlighten us further about dramatists in the series, and if they include
such writers as Ford and Webster, then how the editions different from
the Penguin paperbacks American can get of these dramatists.

Thanks in advance,
Jack Heller
