What a find, James! Since the letter reads, "The only other colour
book..." does this mean your copy of MOV is in color? 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.
