In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

El Mentidero de Comediantes Bajo este título, regocijados comediófilos , hallaréis de ahora en adelante la columna de noticias que antes se llamaba "Capa y Espada." Para que particip éis y gocéis del mismo espíritu alegre y bullicioso que imperaba en los antiguos mentideros — el de Comediantes y el de las Gradas de San Felipe •— os recomiendo que leáis los dos art ículos de Ricardo Sepúlveda en su libro Madrid viejo, págs. 1-17 y 335-52, o en IEA, XXXI (1887), pte. Ia, págs. 130-31 y pte. 2a, págs. 302-03. Spanish Drama Before Lope de Vega, by J. P. W. Crawford (1937), is being reprinted by the University of Pennsylvania Press. A supplement (compiled by Ye Editor) brings the bibliography up to date and provides a handy guide to recent editions and studies. This indispensable and sorelyneeded history of pre-Lopean drama should be available by the time you read this item. Order it now for yourselves , your libraries, and your classes. Suggestion for a cooperative project — We all know about the Ticknor Collection in Boston, the University of Pennsylvania's collection of the Escogidas volumes, and California's pride and joy, the Partes of Lope de Vega. But what about other universities and libraries? It could happen that the very volume you want at a given moment and place is within easy reach. For example: if you live in the Chicago area, or happen to be visiting there, and need vol. 23 of the Escogidas, it is not necessary to write to Boston or Philadelphia — the University of Chicago has a copy. If you are bored by "Expo '67" in Montreal, come to Toronto and enjoy our Escogidas 28, 38, 42, 48; Diferentes 25; Lope's Partes I ( Amberes , 1607), II (Amberes, 1611), VI (Madrid, 1616), X (Madrid, 1618), XX (Barcelona, 1630), XXII (Madrid, 1635); and Calderon's Parie II ("Q" version). I propose, therefore, that data on the location of volumes of such important collections as the Escogidas, Diferentes, Partes of Lope, Calderón, etc. be sent to Ye Ed. for publication in this column. Don't wait for a meeting or a committee report; just jot down the information and send it along.
