Comment: 	Re: SHK 18.0541 James D. Linton, Illustrator

Nicole Coonradt asks re Linton's color illustrations for the MERCHANT OF 
VENICE edition published c.1909 by Hodder & Stoughton:

"What I'm wondering is, if so, how is Shylock depicted? Does he have a 
red beard or red hair? I only ask in tandem with the recent thread on 
"Redheads," because I'm curious to know how the illustrator represents 
this famous Jewish character and if it is in keeping with what members 
have posted about Elizabethan stage traditions."
