Comment: 	SHK 18.0471 Flying Leaf

On Friday, I posted Joe Egert's Note - "Flying Leaf"; as I indicated 
then in an Editor's Note, listserv does not have the capacity to 
distribute pdf files, and so I published Joe's submission without 
including his figures, the visuals that were inseparably connected to 
the points he was arguing. To rectify this problem, Eric Luhrs has 
mounted a copy the note that includes all five figures on the page 
"Papers by SHAKSPER-members seeking critical advice", a link to which 
can be found on the SHAKSPER website main page or here -- 
http://www.shaksper.net/review-papers/index.html

You may also go directly to the file with this link -- 
http://www.shaksper.net/review-papers/Flying-Leaf-with-Figures.pdf -- 
Note that the file is in the pdf format and requires the Abode Reader. 
Should you not have an Adobe Reader, you may download a free copy here 
-- http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html.

For the time being, you may respond either to SHAKSPER -

I really don't see what the problem is. Do we know when Lord Amherst 
acquired his second copy? Why couldn't it have been that which was being 
described in 1888?

Endpapers/flyleaves/pastedowns are added during binding, so if the 
Amherst copy was indeed rebound c.1700, I would expect them to have been 
added at that date, the paper to be roughly contemporary, and the 
inscriptions to have quite likely been added later.  (In any event, the 
leaves couldn't have been bound prior to 1623, or the inscriptions added 
to the paper before 1616.)
