Message requiring your approval (31 lines) ------------------

In a recent visit to the Berg Collection (NY Public Library), I noticed in the catalogue a reference to VN's critique of others' translations of Hamlet into Russian, but not an actual copy of the play in English.

I take this opportunity to mention that Stephen Crook, the Archive's cataloguer, asked me to "spread the word" that approximately 95% of the archive's holdings is unrestricted and open to all researchers working on relevant projects.

Regards to all,
Steve Blackwell
