and philosophy of his own into Shakespeare. Hertzberg's prefaces to some
plays in the German Shakspere Society's edition of Schlegel and Tieck's
translation of Shakespeare are valuable with reference to characteristics of
versification. The same Society has published twelve annual volumes

Manual may be found useful, if read with care to distinguish the writer's
theories from ascertained facts. The New Shakespeare Society has published
Transactions containing papers of value, reprints of early quartos, and Eliza-
bethan works which illustrate Shakespeare. (Publishers for the Society,
TrUbner and Co., London.)
