Good one! Memory refreshed - the locale is Vienna, but many of the 
character's names more likely
Italian(ish), e.g. "Vincentio."  None German.  Why?

Johnson noted the "folios" of his day rewrote princely for prenzie.  I 
found an example, an excerpt from Hazlitt's "Characters of Shakespear's 
Plays"

Claudio. The princely Angelo?
Isabella. Oh, 'tis the cunning livery of hell,
The damned'st body to invest and cover
In princely guards! ..

If Measure for Measure "transpires" at all, doesn't it transpire in Vienna?

If "prenzie" is a Folio misprint, how can it be a hapax legomenon?

Does anyone find Terence Hawkes as entertaining as Terence Hawkes?
