[Today, cleaning out the Augean Stables of my mailbox -- which, mind
you, is to imply nothing whatsoever about the messages I found there,
only my housecleaning habits -- I discovered this long abandoned query.
Mea culpa! I just hope the person who submitted it is still interested
in an answer, hasn't lost her kingdom for want of it, etc. --W.M.]

Hello. I'm Meg Greer and I teach Spanish Golden Age literature-primarily
drama-at Princeton. I am working on a long-range project of identifying
16th and 17th-century Spanish theatrical scribes, using a database to
organize the material. Also, we have succeeded in reading cancelled
sections on a Tirso manuscript, using a combination of photographic
techniques and computer scanning and analysis to "lift off" the
cancelling scribbles. I would like to hear what others are doing.
