Dear SHAKSPEReans,

I purchase my copies of Shakespeare Survey when I renew my Shakespeare 
Association of America membership dues. The upside is that I save a 
considerable amount of money from the normal rate; the downside is that 
my copies arrive almost a year after Cambridge University Press makes 
them available.

Long and short, I don't yet have my copy of Volume 58 yet.

I spent some time this morning with the University of Maryland System's 
database, ResearchPort, trying to locate an electronic copy of Ewan 
Fernie's essay "Shakespeare and the Prospect of Presentism" from 
Shakespeare Survey 58 (2005): 169-84. I was not successful.

Is there someone who could email this essay in Adobe pdf format? Most 
scholarly journals that are available in electronic format use Adobe as 
the de facto standard. If the essay is not available in pdf format, 
could someone using Adobe Standard or Professional or another 
third-party software scan the article into pdf format for me? And if no 
one can scan the essay for me, could someone send me a photocopy so that 
I can scan the essay myself.

In a like manner, if members who would like to participate in the 
upcoming Roundtable/Colloquium whatever and do not have access to one or 
more of the recommended readings, please email me.

One more thing, while I was trying to find an electronic copy of 
Fernie's essay, I went to the Shakespeare Survey homepage 
http://www.cambridge.org/features/literature/shakespearesurvey/default.htm 
and discovered that Cambridge UP has reprinted an almost complete run of 
Shakespeare Survey volumes from 1 to 52 and are placing these for sale 
to libraries that would like to have a complete series. I write 
libraries because I imagine only libraries can afford to purchase the 
paperback collection. Because I was in a hurry, I did not find the cost 
so I am imagining base on what I did see about getting a $250 discount 
on the series or was that 250 pounds? Details can be found here:

Shakespeare Survey is a yearbook of Shakespeare studies and production.

Since 1948 Survey has published the best international scholarship in 
English and many of its essays have become classics of Shakespeare 
criticism. Each volume is devoted to a theme, or play, or group of 
plays; each also contains a section of reviews of that year's textual 
and critical studies, and of the year's major British performances. The 
books are illustrated with a variety of Shakespearean images and 
production photographs. The virtues of accessible scholarship and a keen 
interest in performance, from Shakespeare's time to our own, have 
characterised the journal from the start. Most volumes of Survey have 
long been out of print. Now numbers 1-52 are being reissued in 
paperback, available separately and as a set.

* The volumes have never appeared in paperback before * Will enable 
libraries and scholars to complete their sets and to subscribe cheaply 
to the entire series * Hardback volumes of select later volumes are 
still in print.
