Comment:        Re: SHK 14.2278 Introduction to Matters of Editing

Hello all,

I second Bill Godshalk's recommendation of Gaskell's *New Introduction*
and suggest another work that explores the material circumstances of
textual production: Peter W. M. Blayney's 1991 Folger exhibition catalog
*The First Folio of Shakespeare*. Ken Steele reviewed the catalog in
1991 (http://www.shaksper.net/archives/1991/0101.html), and the last
time I was at the Folger the foyer bookshop had plenty of copies.  I
believe the Folger will also ship the work if you don't happen to be in
the Washington area.
