Excerpt from Shakespeare's Fight With the Pirates and the Problems of the Transmission of His Text

Yale University Press; London: Humphrey Milford, Oxford University Press, My own powers of unimpeded utterance being restriéted to five minutes at a time, these lectures were very kindly read for me by Mr. Stephen Gaselee, of Magdalene College, and I have to record my gratitude, not only to Mr. Gaselee (to whom I am deeply in debt on many other counts), but also to the University authorities for per mitting this unusual arrangement. The only addition I made personally to the text here printed was in a few words of preface in which I expressed my grief that, as Sandars Reader for 1915, I was taking the place of an old friend, Professor Dr. Konrad Haebler, of the Berlin Royal Library, with whom for some twenty years I had ex changed small services, and for whose learning and valu able contributions to our common studies, not even the wrong which his countrymen have done to Europe could lessen my respect. It may, probably it must, be impossible for the old friendly relations between English and German students to be resumed for many years after the war, but those who have received kindness and help and the in spiration of a fine example surely do well to treasure these things in their memory as well as all that we may not forget.
