Could that be Steven Marx, _Shakespeare and The Bible_,OUP, 2000? If you
need any further details, I can check them out for you: I have a copy of
the book at home...

Hope this helps,
Roberta

Try Googling it. I searched for "Kiss the Book" -- in quotation marks,
so Google would look for the whole phrase -- and came up with this URL,
listed by Google at number of 929 hits:

   www.oup.co.uk/pdf/0-19-818439-5.pdf

Google's brief context reads "Introduction: ' Kiss the book ' 1 ' Kiss
the book', slurs Stefano, the shipwrecked butler, in Act 2, Scene 2 of
The Tempest . . ." so it sounds like the right item. I've not explored
further, but it's clearly from OUP.

Googling for "Kiss the Book" (including the quotation marks) gives a PDF
on OUP's web site, and searching that web site from its home page
produces <http://www.oup.co.uk/isbn/0-19-818439-5>, which describes
Stephen Marx's "Shakespeare and the Bible".

The pdf you downloaded is an excerpt from "Shakespeare and the Bible" by
Stephen Marx, available through Oxford University Press.
