New word of the day on misgivings and apocalypses:
Have received and read *The Shakespeare Thefts*, which documents various
anecdotes about the creation of this:
http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=278591. First thoughts:
- Rasmussen has many interesting tales about how difficult it is to obtain
information about Folios, then publishes all his data in a 908-page
dead-paper, £250 book.
-- Does anyone know if he's thinking about making this data public, or at
least available in electronic format? Which format could he use? TEI?
- A whole book of anecdotes, inevitably perhaps, lacks coherence. Although
the fates of some Folios are so strange you couldn't make them up, you kind
of miss the neat tales of a complete, made up, story.
Have a good weekend,
