SIR,—In a book review (Spectator, October 11), Mr. Philip Brockbank

suggests the reprinting, for the 1964 Shakespeare quatercentenary, of Edgar I. Fripp's 'fine work.' This undertaking is already in hand. We shall reissue Fripp's Shakespeare: Man and Artist in two volumes, with 119 illustrations, in May next.
