Comment:    Re: SHK 19.0533 Othello and Cassio

FWIW, in  The Crescent and the Rose:  Islam and England During the  Renaissance 
(Oxford, 1937), Samuel Chew says that there's evidence of  props on the one hand 
and accounts of travels like  William Lithgow's  Rare Adventures and Paineful 
Peregrinations (1632), that trace a  consciousness of color among Moors, from 
"white Moors" to "tawny  Moors," to "black Moors" (521).
