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."
